My Top 5 Handbag Must-Haves with U by Kotex & Walmart

Beauty/ Kotex/ Walmart

Thank you to U by Kotex & Walmart for sponsoring today’s story

Hey beauties! Fall is just around the corner, although from the weather here in the South it certainly doesn’t feel like it.  During the work week I usually carry a fairly large handbag or tote, but if I am running errands or meeting up with a friend I like to travel lighter. I love clutches and wristlets so today I am sharing five items I grabbed at Walmart that are must haves for my on the go wristlet.  
Handbag Must-Haves with U by Kotex & Walmart
1.  I am never without tissues. I have bad allergies and must have some with me at all times. Last year my friend Tish (the blogger behind Cosmetish) and I were heading to an event for The Makeup Show Orlando, as we walked to the venue I realized I forgot my tissues when I changed bags. Tish was laughing at my panic over this, about 20 minutes into the presentation my nose started running and I was freaking out, I looked over at her with the I told you so look in my eyes. I was so mad at myself and annoyed because I had to get up and go to the ladies room. Even though I wasn’t gone long, I didn’t want to miss a minute of James Vincent’s presentation.  Tissues are my number one must have item, and these Kleenex Slim packs are perfect. The slim, design makes them easy to carry along in your bag or even in your pocket. 
2.   So can we just be honest sometimes mother nature sends us a not so wanted present, whatever such is life. With U by Kotex tampons I can always have discrete protection on hand. When it’s that time of the month I always have a U by Kotex pad or tampon in my clutch. The U by Kotex Click Tampons are go from a compact to a full-size tampon in one easy move, just pull until it clicks for full-sized period protection
3.  Another item I cannot be without is hand sanitizer, I need to keep my hands clean. Think about all the things you touch throughout the day.  ATM machines, gas station pumps, doorknobs, even shaking hands, YUCK. Germs, germs everywhere.  I usually grab a couple of these travels size germ-x hand sanitizers when I am in the store, there is one in every purse I have. This one is great because it also has aloe, so it in not as drying to the skin. 
4.  Obsessed with not having dry hands, moisturizer is number four on my list. When I am pressed for space in a bag I always grab my Aquaphor. This skin protector is a healing ointment so it makes a great moisturizer for dry hands, cuticles and I can even use it as a lip balm or to slick down a random hair in a pinch.  
5.  Last but certainly not least is a lip color. I absolutely love the L’Oreal Extraordinaire by Color Riche if you haven’t picked any of these up yet, run to the store and grab a few, they are FAB. Great color payoff, long lasting, not drying, and apply smooth. My favorite color is Molto Mauve and it is the perfect shade to transition me into fall.

What’s In My Overnight Bag #savetheundies

Kotex/ Lifestyle

Huge thank you to U by Kotex for sponsoring today’s discussion

When was the last night you got away? Are you always a planner or to just pick up and go? Typically I am a planner, but every once in a while a spontaneous overnight get away is just what I need.  I quick dash off for a weekend is just what I need to recharge my batteries. Let’s take a peek inside my usual overnight bag
What's In My Overnight Bag
I almost always travel with a scarf, it can be used many ways as an accessory and will come in handy if for some reason I get cold. I try to keep up with my skincare even away from home but will condense to the basics. Makeup on the other hand I pack pretty light; bb cream, sunscreen, one palette that has eye and cheek color, mascara, lip gloss, and this travel brush set. 

If it happens to be that time of the month I know I can still pack my nice panties, and not worry about any accidents that might ruin them. The New U by Kotex Ultra Thin Pads have me covered. 
What's In My Overnight Bag
The 3D Capture Core* features a one-of-a-kind center that locks away wetness to help stop leaks.
The New U by Kotex Ultra Thin Pads give me confidence that my nice panties will be protected and they don’t take up a lot of space. I don’t like to carry a large handbag when I got out. Instead I almost always carry a clutch or wristlet. I love that I can fit all my essentials, including my U by Kotex Ultra Thin Pads so I never have to worry.

Now even when I am away from home I know that I can still wear my nice panties without worrying about accidents.
