What's in my bag - Ju-Ju-Be Edition: Perky Toki BRB

Right here is the beauty of my entire collection...so far. She is also what I use as my diaper bag. I have a 2-year-old and a 5-month-old, since my oldest is pretty independent I don't use this bag to carry much for her. So, my youngest gets this one all to herself.

Just like with my BeLight, I don't like having anything loose in my bag. So, I utilize the Quicks I have set aside specifically for this bag.

Before we get int those, here's what I have inside: Huggies wipes holder that fits nicely in the two elastic bands, full-size fuel cell, and three BeQuicks.

Inside the Quicks: one for diapers (disposable, for both girls) and extra burping cloth; one for the aquaphor, Evian water refreshment spray & baby lotion; and the last one is for a few things I might carry instead of carrying my purse. I don't really put much in the mommy pocket in front, I might use it for quick access to my phone.

In the fuel cell I can fit three premade 8oz bottles and two small ice packs. I have learned of a new way to carry bottles with just the water while using small baggies that will hold two scoops of powdered formula (which should make 4oz per baggie). So, if I still wanted to carry three 8oz bottles, I would fill them with the appropriate amount of purified baby water, ditch the ice packs and throw in 6 baggies of powdered formula. Check out my instagram later for a visual of this method. 

Lastly, though they are mostly not used,I still carry a paci pod with two paficiers just in case...but it's mostly just for show 😉

In my next WIMB post I will show you how I pack my oldest daughter's BeLight.

What's in my bag - Ju-Ju-Be Edition: Pinky Swear BeLight

This is my first installment of "What's in my bag?" I'm really not a video person, so I don't do packing videos. But, for ladies like me that don't pack a whole lot and have a HUGE JJB obsession, I decided just to show you what I carry in the bags that I have.

First up is my Pinky Swear BeLight that I use as my purse. Now, a little bit about myself: I am a very organized person, almost anal about it, but you could never tell by looking inside my purse. Before JJB it was a nightmare trying to find anything. Now, I have quicks and sets to help combat the battle of trying to find anything.

Set pieces are in the Olive Juice print.

Here are the contents inside: wallet, sunglasses, one BeQuick, and one medium and small piece from the BeSet.

The small piece contains the cards from my wallet that I use most (quicker to grab when I need them), as well as my de-tagged Iconic coin purse that I actually use for loose change.

The medium piece holds my make-up.

For all the rest of the stuff that would normally be loose inside I have the BeQuick.

The two narrow pockets on the outside is where I keep my phone and any other small things.

But, what I personally love the most is the paci pod. Neither one of my daughters use a pacifier anymore, but an awesome friend of mine (and fellow Pink Lady) showed me a very creative way to use them.

Paci pod and custom anti bac holder are both in the Tokidoki Bubble Trouble print.

So, lastly, rubber bands for both my daughter and myself and the donut brush from Claire's boutique.

As you can see, much more organized now and my brain is at ease when I have to end up looking for something. It's the small things.

Back and better and completely obsessed

perkytoki

So, it's been a while, I know. After the move, we had a rough time getting adjusted and then our little one started teething...we are back on track now. But, in the midst of the chaos I let stress get the better of me. You know how some people stress eat? I stress shop...for Ju-Ju-Be.

Tomorrow is the release of a new Tokidoki print called PerkyToki and I'm so excited!!! I thought I wanted a bigger bag, but i'll probably end up just getting a quick and a paci pod...or maybe two quicks...or maybe a light and a quick...who knows?!

take my money

Aside from feeding my obsession by constantly stalking the facebook b/s/t, I have made some awesome friendships with other Pink Ladies (the official name for Ju-Ju-Be ladies in the community). I think that having people to talk to that are just as fixated as I am, that understand why I just love these bags so much, helps tremendously. It helps take my mind off of the stress of day-to-day life and my bags have become my happy place. I swear, one day I'm going to post a picture of me surrounded by my stash with a look of complete bliss. IT'S THAT AWESOME.

It's good for me and it's good for my sanity and it's good for my marriage lol
