My Essentials


There are certain things that I cannot live without, especially now that I’m a mom. First up – coffee! I try to limit myself to one cup of caffeine a day, whether it is coffee or a Diet Coke. Anything more & then I get too jittery. However, I need at least one drink to help me power through my day. Plus it enables me to keep up with my kid.

I typically get a Starbucks skinny vanilla latte, but I’ll also go to Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf for their tea latte drinks. Usually I go to Starbucks though because they are easier to find (hello, on every corner) AND because I’m a gold card member.

The other must have for me are Wet Wipes. I keep a canister in my car & a pack in my purse. If I’m not wiping my daughter’s hands after she eats something messy, then I’m using it on my hands after I pump some gas. How can you not wash your hands after you touch that filthy handle?


I exercise a lot & one thing I NEED to have is good workout shoes. I like running shoes with good support, otherwise my heel or the arch of my foot start to hurt. I like to buy shoes with a little pop of color.


Now that the summer months are upon us, I make sure to drink plenty of water. After a while though, I get tired of the “non-taste.” Occasionally I will put lemon slices in it. My latest obsession though is Mio. It’s liquid drops of heaven for your water! Ok, that may be an exaggeration but I think it is pretty neat. Think of it as a “next-level” version of Crystal Light. The best part is that it is zero calories!


Lastly, one of the coolest things that I have bought recently is my Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation. This tiny thing can charge my smartphone, my Kindle, hubby’s iPad & my iTouch. Since we are always on the go during the summertime, I just throw this in my handbag. I like to follow the ABC rule (always be charging). Now there is no need to worry if I’m not near an outlet or can’t use my car charger!
