What's in my bag? February 2013

Hello all,

The start of any new season, and especially Spring, is always an exciting time for me. From planning weekend getaways to new seasonal collections being released at Nordstroms, warmer weather always means new and fun in the Pierce household. As I was digging through the bottom of my older bag and switching items over to my new tote, I thought it would be fun to share some of my "can't live without" products I keep in my bag! Maybe we share a few of the same items? Leave me a comment of what's in your bag!

The Bag:

This bag can be found under the "New Arrivals" from Michael Kors. It is made of leather and very roomy for all of my needs, as well as enough space to throw in any dolls or cars for Jaxon and Sophia. I chose this color because it has an easy, casual feel but is still structured and sophisticated.

This is a family favorite! This baked snack comes in all different flavors and is gluten free, which has become a major health trend in the past year. This can be found in the organic aisle of most supermarkets.

In the morning, I usually chop up some type of fruit for my kids when we are on the go. Jaxon is a fan of apples with some sort of dip (chocolate or yogurt) on the side. 

The SK-II eye mask from Sephora is nothing short of a life saver! After a sleepless night, I usually will apply these underneath my eyes for 10 minutes while I fold laundry or put away misplaced toys. These are especially sticky, so they won't move or slide as I go from  task to task. 

According to recent discoveries, the sun is a major cause of the early arrival of (gasp!) wrinkles! To prevent this, every morning, before I apply anything else, I put on a good amount of moisturizing sunscreen. Anything by La Roche Posay is phenomenal! The formula of the Anthelios SX sunscreen is extremely light and doesn't leave your face feeling greasy.

I always keep a notepad and a few Crayola markers in my bag to entertain Jaxon and Sophia during long car rides or trips to the grocery store. This is an activity that encourages the kids to use their imagination, as well as holds their attention.

Sophia's favorite book! The use of color and textures help to hold Sophia's attention for at least a short amount of time. Also, the positive message is a lasting one that I give a "Mommy Stamp of Approval!"

So those are a few of my favorite things (cue Julie Andrews) that are a constant staple in my everyday bag. Hope you enjoyed this post and don't forget to comment what are some your favorite things to carry!
