Trending Now


We think it’s pretty unfair that Mary Poppins gets to float around with her ready-for-anything magic carpet bag while we’ve been digging through an avalanche of receipts from 2018, a half-open bag of fruit snacks, two lip balms missing caps, and a handful of Hot Wheels just to find a pen in our purses. Channel that always prepared energy and reorganize your bag with this list of essentials we rounded up to keep you ready no matter what the day brings!

Bare Minerals

Ageless Phyto-Retinol Lip Treatment


Time to replace those half-smushed lip balms with this lip treatment from Bare Minerals! More than just a moisturizer, this multi-tasking beauty uses a plant-based retinol and hyaluronic acid to smooth and plump your pout while deeply nourishing and treating fine lines and wrinkles!


Water Repellent Spandex Twist Headband


Whether it’s a sudden downpour or a morning with zero time to style your hair, this chic headband has your back – ahem, head. Not only is it totally on-trend, it’s water-repellant fabrication and neutral color options make it ideal for keeping in your bag for a quick transformation that keeps you protected from the elements!

Bed Bath & Beyond

Quick Fix On-the-Go First Aid Kit


They’re so easy to overlook, but a first aid kit is a must-have, all the time. Instead of a bulky box, this handy little tin holds bandages, antibiotic ointment, and hand sanitizer to put your mind at ease!

Bed Bath & Beyond

Power Bank Block


Don’t let the dreaded blank phone screen stop you! This handy little power bank is compact enough to toss in your bag, but powerful enough to charge two devices at one time.


Foldable Shoppers Tote


Helpful for you and the environment, this foldable tote makes everything from last-minute grocery store runs to wet bathing suits easy to carry. And, since they’re small enough to fit in your back pocket and strong enough to hold up to 50lbs, you’ll never have to deal with flimsy plastic bags again!


Set of 3 Assorted Piped Pouches


We’ll never get tired of ways to organize and separate our purse pockets, and this set of 3 piped pouches are a convenient way to color-code makeup, crayons, cords, and more!

Bed Bath & Beyond

Mineral Sunscreen Tinted Face Lotion SPF 30


We know you know sunscreen is important, but we don’t want to miss the chance to remind you that sunscreen is absolutely essential, no matter what the weather looks like. A tinted sunscreen provides the matte finish that keeps us feeling put together, a buttery application, and the sun protection our faces need.

Bed Bath & Beyond

Nose Balm


You’ve got them protected from the sun; make sure their delicate skin is protected from the other elements, too! This nose balm isn’t just for little sniffers. USDA Certified Organic means you don’t have to worry about the yucky stuff when using this soothing balm on their noses, lips, and anywhere else your babe (or you!) needs some extra TLC
