Ok, let's face it. Whenever I'm packing my overnight bag, my handbag to run a few errands, or just for a little road trip, I tend to go overboard and pack my entire room. It's a little problem I seem to have. However, I narrowed them down for this post so I could feature my top 5 on-the-go essentials. These 5 items are without a doubt the little ones that get me through any uncomfortable moments. So even if I should throw a few of my 'essentials' out, these would still have their place because they help make my life so much easier.

Hand Sanitizer

A convenient way to keep the germs at bay. My favourite ones are from Bath & Bodyworks that come in a variety of scents. Currently using the scent, 'Pink Bloom'.

Lip Balm

Normally you'll find me with my favourite EOS lip balms, but I've been switching things up a bit. I've been using The Body Shop's strawberry lip butter. The scent is perfect for the summer, and it is super moisturizing too! 

Hand/Body Butter

It's obvious I'm loving strawberry scented products for the summer. This strawberry body butter from The Body Shop is very rich and creamy, not too heavy for summer use, and is a great way to keep your skin hydrated. The container is also small enough for everyday travel.


These come in handy for any little mess. I love these little pocket sized ones from Kleenex, plus the packaging is very fun and girly.

I always keep a pack of liners in my bag just in case. You never know when mother nature wants to come knocking at your door, and the key to staying confident when this happens is knowing you are prepared. U by Kotex® Lightdays® Liners is my go-to brand for these moments. Not only are they perfect for my lighter days, but they're also 'barely there' comfortable, have a great fit, and offer high absorbency.
