Mommy Must-Have: The Honest CarryAll Satchel

liv liv2The Honest Company_2015-05-11_13-53-53Did you know that we now carry The Honest Carryall Satchel? As a mom who is always on the go, having to switch back and forth between a handbag, work tote and a diaper bag throughout the week was a huge source of frustration for me… that is until I test drove the Satchel last week. With convenient pockets on the outside for easy and quick access to the essentials like my keys, wallet and my son Grey’s snacks, and tons of hidden storage inside, it’s been so much easier to stay organized. Because it looks great, too, and features gold hardware, my go-to accent color, I’ve been using it for work and weekends. I love it so much I plan to use it even after Grey is out of diapers! –Olivia

Diaper Bags Your Friends Will Envy

DiaperBag_1-608x398 DiaperBag_2-608x990Even though you’ll be lugging diapers, there’s no reason you can’t do so in style! You’ll need a bag that is chic yet durable, and has lots of room and compartments.  Here are a few of my favorites that I think are well worth the investment. You’ll notice a theme in the colors but with this bag getting so much mileage, you will want a dark color to conceal the wear and of course black goes with everything! -Olivia

Toddler + Mommy Snacks On-the-Go!

snackonthegoBeing a mom of a 17-month old I learn something new every day. We are in the throes of toddler-hood and I am enjoying every minute. It’s been amazing to watch my little boy grow so quickly from an infant into a toddler! Greyson is a fun-loving active kid, who is a ball of energy! That said, this is also a stage where his attention span hits a wall and being a working mother, it’s important for me to get errands and chores done quickly and efficiently. One of the things that have made life a little easier is having healthy and easy to pack snacks on hand at all times for Grey when we are out. I need to choose snacks that he loves, but that also keep his little hands and mouth busy while I get done shopping or running back and forth.

My husband and I are conscious when it comes to our son’s snacks being as healthy as possible. I usually throw an apple or tangerine in my bag, but one of our favorite snacks is Bitsy’s Brainfood Smart Cookies. They are alphabet shaped cookies baked with real fruits and veggies. The best part? They come in handy individual packs. Grey loves the Sweet Potato, Oatmeal and Raisin flavors. Having a sippy cup on hand is great too, since it can keep him busy for a few minutes. Yes- just minutes! If you are already a mom, you’ll know that’s a few golden moments! If you are expecting, I hope that you remember these tips in your near future. I try to always have a Kind Bar in my Buffalo Carry-All bag as well, in order to stave off mommy hunger! Handy on-the-go wipes and a chic (not-obvious) baby bag round out my arsenal of running-errand must haves. Happy outings! -Olivia
