1. My ginormous lidded cup. I obviously drink a ton of water, especially on long workout days, but a plain water bottle with plain water gets plain boring. So I got this big mamma jamma:
2. A headband. No, this isn't a plug for myself, especially since I still don't have my Etsy shop open yet and the boy thinks he should use the sewing machine when I turn it on now. I just honestly don't leave home without one on hand. If I don't have time to fix my hair, it saves me. If its windy, I'm set. When I work out, it gives me the extra oomph of being cute and no sweat in the eyes. I lurve them foreva.
3. Mary Kay lip gloss. I don't have big pouty lips, and I'm a messy, quick-moving person, so lipstick is out. But I still like moisture and some sparkle, what girl doesn't?? This does the job. It isn't animal-tested, it doesn't suck the natural moisture out of your lips like some do, and the company supports hard-working, often times stay-at-home moms, yay! I wear it on that super rare date with hubby and I wear it to the gym and everything in between. I'm wearing it now!
4. Stainless steel water bottle and small snack pack for the kids. Because seriously, the kids are ALWAYS hungry. I generally have pretzels, healthy crackers,twist top applesauce, fruit leather (new addiction), all stuff that isn't bothered by weather. It keeps me from having to buy them junk food when we're out running errands. The kids also always backwash, so there's no way they're sharing my drink! The nice stainless steel bottles (think SIGG, Crocodile Creek, etc) are cute, eco-friendly, and keep the water clean and yummy. My snack pack varies from a handmade baggie to a bpa-free sandwich box to just a bunch of packaged crap floating in my purse. Not always pretty, but prettier than a hungry child!
|This is my kitchen, I get to finish the post at home!|
There you go, a few things I never leave home without. And except for my big drink, they all fit in my not-very-big shoulder bag with all of my other random junk. You don't need tons of space to always be prepared!
What are your go-to's? I'd love to find more crap to need! Have a happy weekend, and enjoy the beginnings of Fall!!!
