Hey folks! I was putting together a quick on the go bag to use when we go out of town for spring break and wanted to share the what, why and how behind it. My on the go bag is simply a small cosmetic bag filled with everyday essentials. It’s filled with things that get me through the day and allow me to transition from errands to events effortlessly.

The benefit of the carefully curated on the go bag is that it’s small, contains essentials and can be moved from my bag to my purse or even carried alone in the glove compartment of my car. One on the go bag is perfect, but having a few makes things even better.

I have two gym bags, eight purses and a glove compartment so it makes sense to have a few on the go bags. I have two that I move between my purse, gym backpack and car, but all that moving around has gotten annoying. That’s why I made this one over the weekend. It eliminates having to remember where I last put my it. No more checking my last purse and gym bag, now I have one specifically for my purse, my gym bag, and another for the glove compartment.

Life is busy for me right now and I don’t have time to think about the small stuff. My weeks are filled with early mornings at the gym, errands, afternoon meetings, restaurant dining once or twice a week and travel out of town. Some days are so busy that I’m not able to get back home to touch up makeup, freshen my breath or freshen up so I carry these small bag that fits easily in my gym bag, my purse and glove compartment.

How to Create an On the Go Bag

DIY On-The-Go-Bag

1- Find a super cute cosmetic bag.

I found that adorable “You Glow Girl” cosmetics bag at Walgreens. I was in there picking up some travel size items for my flight and spotted this cutie. I love the size and the color is just my style. It’s large enough to store essentials, yet small enough to tuck it into a larger bag or carry it as is.

2 – Pick your essentials.

I don’t go crazy here trying to add everything I think I’d need if you were going to be on the go all day. I really put some thought into this step because there are a million thing I could have put in here. I was thinking nail polish, nail clippers, a nail file and a journal but I didn’t want something so bulky I wouldn’t use it.

What I came up with are:

1- Sunglasses

2- Pen & Pad

3- Lipstick

4- Accessories (earrings/necklace)

5- Perfume

6- Cash
