Oh hey friends!!

So excited to talk to you today about my Mom bag and purse essentials. There are a few things you will ALWAYS find in my Mom purse!! Things I have learned the hard way that I can't live without!!! Here are my bag essentials:


1. Charly's Snacks - I mean this is a given if you are a Mom, right?! If I carry snacks, I can get her through just about anything!!!

2. Mini Brush - Who would have thought, but this little brush has saved me so many times. When it's windy outside and I start developing dreads or even when Char needs a good brush through. And huge bonus, since it's mini it doesn't take up much room at all!

3. Water Bottle - As I'm losing weight and just in general, we are supposed to drink a lot of water daily!! Half our body weight in ounces right?! Well that is not happening without a water bottle!! Having this in my bag helps remind me to drink drink drink!!! And when Char gets thirsty I can also give her a drink too. Win-win!

4. Powder - My skin is OILY!!! Having an easy to apply clear powder saves me on days when I'm out and about and need a little face blotting! 

5. Simply Summer's Eve Cleansing Cloths - These cleansing cloths have been my go-to for YEARS!!!! You will not only find them in my Mom bag, but my girls night out bag and my gym bag!!! Here is the truth. We all want to be fresh down there, right?! Whether you are running errands after the gym, it's that time of month (thanks a lot Aunt Flow), or it's a really hot and humid day outside, these are essential to keep in your bag. No one wants to be stinky. EVER!!! Here are the facts you guys!!! These cloths helps the body maintain natural ph, works great with sensitive skin (like mine), kills odor-causing bacteria, tested for safety, and last but not least, available in a few scents!!! I LOVE coconut water!! 

6. Hair Ties & Bobbi Pins - You can NEVER have enough of these. They get lost, misplaced, disappear into thin air sometimes, so I always have them on hand and stored in my bag. I can't count how many times I have had a hair tie break on me and I had to go track down an rubber band or something crazy to put my hair up in!! Ahhhh it's the worst!! 

7. Individual Simply Summer's Eve Cleansing Cloths - Same product as above but individually wrapped! YES PLEASE!! These come in handy in my smaller bags, clutches, or even if I need to stick one in my pocket on the go. I can't say it enough, but for the last several years these have been life saving to me!! As a Mom, business owner and always on the go, you will never find me without my Simply Summer's Eve Cleansing Cloths!! 

8. Gloss - I'm a lipstick wearer as you know and I don't go anywhere without my gloss!!! My lips are always plump and moisturized because taking care of them is a top priority!! ;)

Other helpful things to keep in your Mom bag, in no particular order, include:
  • Sunscreen
  • Tweezers
  • Nail Clippers
  • Band Aids
  • Stain Remover
  • Tampons
  • Hand Sanitizer

Also when carrying these small items, consider placing them in a small/medium size makeup clutch to throw in your Mom bag for easy access.

As for your physical Mom bag, read my tips here for finding the right diaper bag! In short, when investing in a new diaper bag, be sure to look for bags that have pockets, comfortable straps and are not too bulky and big.


What are your purse essentials? What's in your bag? What do you always carry with you on-the-go?! Have a great weekend friends!!!
