Cool Mom Essentials

In the words of Regina George’s mom, “I’m not like a regular mom, I’m a cool mom”. Or at least that is what I try to convince myself of on a daily basis. As a working “cool mom” of two (of the cutest kids you will ever see… naturally), I like to keep my life as efficient as possible, while still trying to stay on top of trends and tech as much as I can between cleaning snot noses and chasing a toddler that has more energy than the energizer bunny. Here is my most current list of must-haves:

cool mom essentials 2


1. Chic Buds Clutchette Power

This has been a lifesaver for me. Somehow my phone seems to go through the battery quicker than ever and this is not only cute, but keeps my phone charged in case I actually NEED to use it vs. taking one million pictures of the bambinos. I like the bright colors so that I can find it buried in my giant tote/diaper bag, but the neutrals are great too! Holds and charges my phone as well as my key essentials of credit cards, drivers license and lip gloss. Unfortunately, a bottle of wine doesn’t fit in this. Yet.

2. Spray of Sunshine Fragrance Sampler

I may not look put together at all times but I’ve always been weird about the need to smell good. I love perfumes and not only does this give you a great selection of portable, delicious smelling scents, but you can take the “scent certificate” that comes inside and get a rollerball of your favorite one at no extra cost! What person doesn’t like a Gift with Purchase?!

3. Tkees

Especially in the new “Blends” style has me obsessed. Super cute, super comfortable and durable. The perfect summer sandal!

4. Klean Kanteen Insulated Water Bottles

These are brilliant. Safe. BPA-free, keeps hot drinks hot for up to 6 hours and cold drinks cold for more than 24 (!) hours. They come in a huge variety of colors and are perfect for whatever your “on the go” beverage choice is!

5. Tide to go Instant Stain Remover

Ok, so I know laundry isn’t cool BUT this stuff works wonders! Seriously, anything your toddler could possibly get on you (which you NEVER know), can most likely be removed by this tiny magic pen.

What are some of your essentials?
