5 Essentials For The Mom On-The-Go.

I think they're few must-have items that every mom should lug around with her at all times, just to make our chaotic lives a little bit easier. Here are my top 5 life-savers.

The Mom Bag:
Who has time to switch out bags? Invest in one great tote large enough to carry around all our daily junk--like this DKNY slouchy tote. With such a fabulous bag no one will ever guess it's filled with kid's toys!

Hand Sanitizer:
Little fingers love sticky things, so you always have to be prepared. I always have hand sanitizer on hand just in case my daughter decides she must touch that germ filled surface I told her a thousand times not to touch. Bath and Body Pocketbacs are my fav because they smell utterly delicious.

Over-Sized Glasses:
Our morning routines can be brutal. Sometimes we can barely get dressed, much less put on make-up before we hit the road and drop off the kiddies. So instead I put on a pair of over-sized glasses and call it a day. (It's better than pretending you didn't hear the other mom's calling your name because you're trying to rush to your car so no one sees you without make-up.) Don't lie. We've all been there. Try these great shades from Bebe.

Light-Weight Scarf:
If you're accident prone like me, you'll appreciate this. Carry a light-weight scarf with you to hide those food stains you've acquired throughout the day, or to simply jazz up a plain outfit. Choose something neutral that can go with everything and can be worn year round. These American Apparel jersey scarves are so budget friendly, you can afford to buy them in every color!

Lip Balm:
A lip balm is a necessity in my house. I hardly ever use lipstick, unless I'm going somewhere special. My daughter also suffers from chapped lips, so I carry something we both can use. This Rosebud lip balm has a barely there tint and moisturizes lips immediately so it's the perfect combination for the both of us.

What are some of your favorite "must-have" items?


  1. Oh I love your must haves! i never thought of carrying a scarf. i must add that.
    mine are...
    1. bath & body works hand sanitizer
    2. my nikon L100 camera {i'm ready for anything}
    3. wet ones antibacterial wipes {to clean off tables when out to lunch like @the mall}
    4. bath & body works liplicious in coconut truffle
    5. coffee-mate "french vanilla" coffee creamer travel pack {i LOVE flavored coffee}
    6. lotion {i hate dry hands}

  2. I totally agree with your list, Nicole! I carry my Sony camera with me everywhere, and I'm psychotic with lotions: I carry 2 in my purse, and 1 in the car. I also keep antibacterial wipes in the car too.

    Thanks for sharing! :)
