    How I Stopped Complaining for a Week

    By Ann Hodgman One woman's diary I said to my daughter, "You know what I just can't stand about this book? The long passages with no dialogue." - She paused, then said, "Mom, are there any books you like ?" Now it was my turn to pause. How could she ask that, when everyone knows how much I love to read? But then again, when had I last complimented a book — even one I admired? Come to think of it, how often did I say anything without a negative twist? I don't want my tombstone...

    NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($29)

    "Don’t be fooled by the creaminess of this concealer-- it still dries down and stays put. You can use it all over the face, from covering darkness under the eyes to the red or brown spots left after breakouts and blemishes. Mom will love how easy it is to throw in her makeup bag and apply on the go."

    The Body Shop Chocomania Body Butter ($20)

    "If she loves chocolate and wants dewy skin, this is the gift for her. Made with decadent ingredients such as cocoa butter, honey, aloe, marula oil, and shea butter, this keeps skin hydrated long after applying."

    GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment ($69)

    "This 10-minute clay mask pulls out impurities without drying out the complexion. It leaves the skin with a beautiful glow and is a must for busy moms who find it hard to get a monthly facial."

    Bite Beauty High-Pigment Lip Pencil ($24)

    "A little of this super-pigmented and hydrating lip pencil goes a long way, not to mention the chubby applicator that makes it easy for Mom to keep her lips luscious. Bonus: It’s loaded with resveratrol, an ingredient shown to protect against sun damage."

    Bliss ‘Zest’ to Thrill Lemon+Sage Body Care Set ($88)

    "This spa-quality body set includes a body wash, scrub, and cream. To transform dry skin into smooth, supple skin, Mom should layer all of the products in the kit -- shower with the wash and the scrub, and then apply the cream while her skin is still slightly damp."

    Caudalíe Beauty Elixir ($18)

    "Used after cleansing, and before or after makeup, this refreshing face mist is infused with grape seed oil to give skin a little boost of radiance and hydration. It’s also perfect for when you need a midday pick-me-up. With regular use, it may help smooth fine lines and tighten pores."
