Us women are known for carrying everything but the kitchen sink in our bags — and I am not here to dispute that. Nope. In fact, I’m here to verify that the rumor is absolutely 100% true and when you become a mama, it becomes 200% fact.
In my case, I’m carrying an entire Target store. It’s where I buy 99.9% of my makeup, other toiletries and things for the kids.
Everything you see above was has been making a home in my bag and I have a good explanation for it all. Let’s break it down, shall we?
e.l.f. lip tint pen, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sun Block, Monistat Chafing Gel (to prevent CHUB RUB), a Lego woman, up & up Target brand wipes, business cards, a pretty envelope box, kids toothbrush, a chewed up pacifier and a toy tiger, of course!
I’m never without a pair of sunglasses, a comb or brush, and of course red lipstick — this is my latest favorite NYX Matte Red from Target. The flag is from the 4th, the notebook is to jot down ideas and another pretty envelope box
My son’s left over Cheetos from his lunch, Nads Facial Strips (because you never know when you’ll need to wax your upper lip!) and my wallet
Now, let’s play a little game.
Can you spot any tampons?
A tampox box?
More specifically Tampax Pocket Pearl?
There it is!
And the tampons wrapped up in total style so no one needs to know Aunt Flo is in town or have your kids ask if it’s string cheese (yes, my daughter brought me a tampon once saying ‘cheese mami, cheese.’)
The pocket pearl itself has a smooth extendable applicator, give you full protection and a built in back up braid. All you mamas know what that’s all about!
Plus, it gives your bag a pop of color and once you are done if you really want to get crafty, you can use the boxes to hold your business cards! How sweet is that?
