Now that I am a Mom, I have noticed that contents of my handbag have drastically changed. Besides the random Cheerio or baby spoon, there are a few essentials that I have found that I always need with me!
Through 9 months of trial and error, here is what I have found works for me and usually makes it from one bag to the next!
First, to keep things organized, I use my old Ipsy bags to organize the contents of my handbags. This makes it easy to find exactly what I am looking for and it makes it easy to switch from one bag to another.
In my first bag I keep all of my lip products. My favorite everyday gloss is the Creme de’ Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm by Dior. It is super hydrating and the smell is amazing. The little pot also lasts a really long time. My favorite colored gloss is the Butter Gloss by NYX. The smell absolutely amazing and give your lips great color. The best time to buy them is when they are buy one, get one half off at Ulta! I also having been carrying around the Amuse Bouche Lipstick by Bite Beauty in the color Beetroot. It is such a great red for my skin tone! It also smells amazing!
The next bag includes all of my handbag must-haves. I also have to Instant Hand Sanitizer with me. I am allergic to a preservative that is in a lot of products, specifically hand soap, so if I cannot read the ingredients list then I cannot use the product. I also keep two products from the company Solemates in my bag. The first is Sole Serum. This little serum is like tylenol for your feet. If your feet are hurting then just rub it on and you will be pain free! I also have the Blister Blocker. I just rub a little of this on my feet and it keeps my shoes from rubbing and causing blisters. I also keep eye drops, perfume, nail polish and hand creme, because you never know if you are going to have a mishap or need a little pick-me-up!
Since Mom Life is now my current life, I also keep things to make my day a little easier. The first is my Mama and Little Teething Necklace. This necklace keeps my jewels out of my sweet girl’s mouth and it really helps to soothe her aching gums. The unique design also means that it will not hit the floor and become covered with germs! I also usually have a teething toy of some sort in my bag. This teether is shaped like a waffel and is from a company called Little Toader. They have a whole line of teethers shaped like food called AppeTEETHERS! I also try to keep snacks with me to prevent a melt-down. I love keeping snacks in my Itzy Ritzy Snack Happens Reusable Bags becuase it prevents waste and easily wipes clean!
I also always have to have a cute wallet! I love the wallets from Target becuase they are constantly getting new styles with pretty pints or fun sayings. This particular wallet is a card wallet and, of course, it is full of gift cards and coupons to my favorite stores!
And that makes up the basics of my handbag essentials! Of course, I also have things like keys, cellphone and sunglasses, but everybody has those things! What do you keep in your handbag? Any essentials that you cannot live without? I would love to know in the comments below!
