What’s in My Mama Bag

When I was pregnant, I thought a mama bag consisted of a giant bag with a ton of essentials. Since becoming a mom, I’ve realized what I need and don’t need over the past 9.5 months.  When I first had Harlee, I thought, “Will I ever forget her? Will I leave her diapers at home?” More times than not, I would remember everything except for deoderant. Even smack dab in the middle of summer on 100 degree days, I would have everything together and head out of the house without putting on deodorant. Since then, my deodorant of choice is Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant. It’s a morning staple for me and always leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. Plus, it is always in my bag for those moments when #mombrain takes over and I forget to put it on before I leave the house!

Deodorant is one of those beauty products that we use every single day but rarely give much thought. We should be expecting more from a product that is so essential to our daily routine right? After reading this 5 star review I made the switch: “This scent is so amazing, I couldn’t be more in love with it. And the even better part is the 48-hour protection and your underarms really do feel smoother!” – Kproffer Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant comes in a various different fragrances but my favorite is Caring Coconut – it smells so good! My favorite part?  Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection plus added skincare benefits with its Nutrium Moisture formula and Dove 1⁄4 moisturizers for softer, smoother underarms.  Now, I can focus on getting around town with Harlee (without worrying about any problems in the perspiration department!).

I’m wearing English Factory Sweater, vintage Levi’s, No. 21 Glitter heels, and vintage Chanel bag.

    I bet your mama bag is just as chic as this outfit! You sure do look fantastic (can we talk about those adorable shoes?) and I’m looking forward to seeing more from you! Dove is my favorite antiperspirant, and I wear it every day!
