On the go with SA: Christina's Bag

On the go with Style-Architects: Christina's Bag

While we realize "what's in your bag" blog posts can feel a tad clichè, our team is going to put our own spin on it by taking an authentic approach + giving you all a glimpse of the not-so-glamorous items that reside in our totes! Let's be honest, we don't all have hundreds of dollars worth of designer beauty products, right?! We're kicking off this new SA blog series by tipping boss lady, Christina's work back upside-down. Enjoy!

Ever since our sweet little bambino joined my hectic life the contents of my handbags have changed drastically. Long gone are the days of fussy makeup and products filled with ingredients that I couldn't pronounce. I have paired down my "stuff" to a handful of necessities that make my life easier but still allow me to maintain my personal style despite mountains of diapers, wipes and baby gear.

1) Sunglasses: Because every girl needs to hide behind her shades once in and while! Currently crushing on my Toms tortoise shell specs!

2) Bag: Traditional diaper bags didn't seem versatile enough for me so I tend to throw whatever I need into a bad that I already own. This Filson tote is simple, timeless and something that I can ask my husband to carry while shopping on 50th/France!

3) HydrationHonest Healing Balm  -  I am obsessed with this all-in-one moisturizer so much that we seriously have one in almost every room of the house. It is jam packed with shea butter, coconut oil, camomile, calendula, etc. It doubles as a diaper cream Mila has never had a diaper rash and I swear it is because I use this on her cute tush daily. I also use it on my cuticles and as hand cream. So basically its the Thebomb.com.

4) Lip balmKorres is my go-to (absolute fav) lip butter. The natural oils and shea butter leave my lips supple and the Wild Rose tint adds a fun juicy pop of color. On days that I have little time for makeup its an easy way to look a bit more pulled together.

5) Diapers - Regardless of if Miss Amelia is in tow…I always have a couple of these on hand. The fun prints no longer make diaper changing seem like a chore!

6) Larabar - when running between photo shoots and client meetings, a quick {healthy} snack is a must have. I love the fact that larabars have a handful of simple ingredients. Plus, the blueberry muffin flavor is reset:14 approved!

7) Tea - as a working Mom on-the-go, staying hydrated is important for breastfeeding (love the sweet chamomile and lavender blend) so I always have a few of these in my bag.
