It is summer and if you’re like me that means that you are ready to switch out your bag for a fun summer one! I recently purchased my first bag from Loungefly and wanted to share what I will be keeping in it this summer as I go on adventures with JustaBXgirl and HOPS. Running around with a tween and a toddler means I need to stay prepared. Here are 5 things that I do not leave the house without having in my bag. Of course, this doesn’t include my keys, wallet, and cell phone because where would I get without those?
Buzz Patch Mosquito Stickers – The mosquito repellent sticker patches from Natural Patch are going to allow us to actually get outside and have fun. JustaBXgirl is allergic to mosquito bites. When she gets a mosquito bite the site swells and becomes very painful. In the past, this has caused her to miss events, classes and opportunities. We actually keep a citronella plant in our bedroom in hopes to help keep away the insects. We are really looking forward to her having protection from the patches. They are most effective for 8 hours but can offer protection for up to 72 hours!
Extra Masks – We wear masks everywhere we go. I try to keep a few extra masks in my bag so that we can change them if the need pops up. JustaBXgirl has been very selective since the start about what masks she will wear. Right now, these are her preferred ones. Since I have a small face I use these as well sometimes. We have been using the black but I think next time I order I will try a lighter color. I simply put a few in a ziplock bag and know that we don’t have to worry.
Jelly Belly Gum – First, let me share that I did not even know that Jelly Belly made gum. Now, I’m an expert on the four flavors. My favorite is the watermelon but that’s probably because watermelon gum is always my favorite! I often have to replace the pack because JustaBXgirl knows just where to find it! It is sugar-free and available in four flavors.
Handzies – I’ve shared these before and I’m sharing again because guess what? They are still in my bag. They’re great not only for me and JustaBXgirl but for HOPS too. Toddlers don’t always get the don’t touch command. When she gets her hands on something she shouldn’t and there isn’t a sink and soap around I know that Handzies got me covered.
Make It Glow Black Girl Sunscreen – I’ve never been great at remembering to wear sunscreen. Fortunately, JustaBXgirl is great at remembering and reminding me to apply and reapply when necessary. We love the Black Girl Sunscreen line because it leaves our skin feeling and looking good.
