Lay-n-Go bag suits people on-the-go

The Lay-n-Go Cosmo is a great invention for the on-the-go man and/or woman. Whether you are traveling or just looking for a quick and convenient way to store your cosmetics, jewelry or toiletries on a daily basis, the Lay-n-Go Cosmo bag might be just the thing.

The Lay-n-Go Cosmo provides an easy 4-in-1 solution to finding a clean surface, quick cleanup, carryall and storage. With the simple pull of a drawstring, the Lay-in-Go seamlessly converts from a 20-inch diameter surface to a transportable handled clutch. Gone are the days of dumping your collections onto a towel or worrying about your things rolling off the counter and onto the floor. Cosmetics, jewelry, or toiletries used on the Lay-n-Go surface are easily spread out on a clean, contained and dry surface, and a pocket on the inside allows for discrete storage.

The shell is 100 percent quilted smooth poly for the solids and pattern bags and smooth nylon for the metallic bags — both are machine washable. The liner is poly ripstop to provide a water repellent and wipeable surface.

The inside pocket measures 7 inches by 5 inches and a specially designed “lip” around the bag keeps products from rolling off of the counter or falling into a wet sink. A Velcro close front storage pocket provides a convenient place to stow the drawstring when closed and carrying or storing the bag. A textured nylon handle adds comfort and convenience for carrying.

The Lay-n-Go Cosmo is available in black, hot pink, ocean blue, lime green, metallic gold, metallic silver, snakeskin and zigzag and is sold at Target and Brookstone stores for $29.95.

Call ahead to ensure the product is in stock.

Due to a number of factors, I’m not a movie critic. One factor is that I have a hearing loss, making it difficult to evaluate technical stuff, such as dialogue. Another is that apparently I don’t know the difference between great movies and mediocre ones. Take “Citizen Kane,” which virtually every critic agrees is the greatest...

Climbing Chihuahua attempts daring escape at Denver shelter

The dog kennels at the Denver Animal Shelter do not have tops on them, but that wasn’t a problem until Pearl arrived.

She was so shy that...
