Mama Bag Essentials + A Giveaway!
Urban Expressions Holly Tote (Save 25% with code STYLEDJ25)
As a mom of little ones, I love to get the scoop from friends and fellow parents about their favorite products. You know, that “must have” item you never leave home without because it helps to prevent that public meltdown or makes snack time on-the-go easier.
Since last fall, one of my “must have” products I carry in my bag is Evian® Natural Brumisateur Mineral Water Facial Spray. It’s chemical-free, lightweight and the perfect shape to slip into my purse side pocket (bonus points for easy access), but I love it’s dual purpose as a product both my kids and I can use. For me, I use it as a skin and hair refresher and makeup enhancer (more about that here) and for the kids it’s a gentle mist for cleaning messy hands, soothing dry skin and helping to control an Alfalfa hair day. With warm summer days upon us, it also makes for a nice little portable mister on those really hot days.
In addition to the basics (diapers, wipes, etc.) my bag is also always stocked with:
– Little plastic toys the perfect size for balancing on a restaurant table or holding in the car.
– Crayons, a small coloring book and a page of stickers. This combo equals at least 30 minutes of content playing time for each child.
– Individual applesauce pouches. They are perfectly portioned, don’t need to be refrigerated and make for a wholesome snack. My kids love the idea of the pouches almost as much as the applesauce itself.
If you’re a parent, what are your favorite products to keep stocked in your bag? I’m always looking for some fresh ideas!
