What’s In My Tote Bag: The Essentials Every Girl Should Know
Listen, I’m not here to gatekeep my favorite products - so let’s go through the essentials you need in your everyday canvas tote bag, according to a self proclaimed expert:
1. Lip Balm
I don’t care if you use lip oil, lip balm, Aquaphor, or lip gloss, but a lip product is vital in my tote bag. I am constantly reaching for my lip balm to help hydrate and keep my lips looking glossy, especially as the weather is starting to get colder…
Lip products I recommend:
Biossance Squalane + Rose Vegan Lip Balm $14
Kosas Plump + Juicy Lip Booster Buttery Treatment $25
2. Gua Sha
Okay, you may be thinking, “Sabrina, why would I need to carry a gua sha around with me?”. Well here’s my answer: You simply never know when you’ll need it. I use mine for headaches, neck tension, and sinus pressure anytime and anywhere so I always keep mine handy.

3. Water Bottle
We’re staying hydrated all year round queens, so make sure to pack your reusable water bottle that you can refill on to go. This is why I love canvas tote bags because you can literally fit almost 4 hydroflasks in the no problem - we love a hydration supporter.
Reusable water bottles I recommend:
Lululemon Back To Life Sport Bottle $48
Hydroflask Wide Mouth w/ Straw Lid $48
4. Claw Clip
No matter the season, no one can deny how easy and cute styling your hair with a claw clip is! I’m the type of person who always tries to wear their hair down and ends up throwing it up by mid afternoon so staying prepared with a claw clip in my bag is a must.
Shop our new biodegradable claw clips:
Say it with me: Sunscreen. Is. Not. Just. For. Summer. We know you should be reapplying your sunscreen every 2 hours but it doesn’t always happen, I get it. That’s why I keep my sunscreen in my bag at all times, that way I have no excuses not to reapply throughout the day.
Sunscreens I recommend:
Supergoop! Glowscreen $36
Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free Sunscreen $48
6. A New Read
Lately, I have been in my reading era so carrying a book around with me has been a must for me. Think about it - you’re bored waiting at the DMV, you have your book. Waiting for your coffee at your local cafe, sit down at a table and read a chapter or two. Let’s reduce our screen time and find other ways to keep ourselves occupied besides Tik Tok.
Books I recommend:
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Verity by Colleen Hoover
