Momkindess sent me their Carry-All Tote Trio for my honest review and a look inside my mom bag.
Hey Friends! Let’s chat bags! I’m a huge cross body bag lover. I love that they are so compact and don’t fit a ton, so my purse is never overly heavy. I’m all about just packing the essentials and running out the door. Well, I’m coming to the conclusion that that has to change.
Storytime! So a couple of weeks ago, my sister and I had gone on a day trip full of shopping and eating. Throughout the day, we kept asking each other for miscellaneous items that one would typically find in a purse- lotion, Kleenex, Tide stick. Neither of us had any of these items. We are both so used to going out and about with our mom who literally packs everything but the kitchen sink. It was then decided that it was time for me to give up my love for cross body bags and get a mom bag. Thankfully I found Momkindess, a diaper bag company for the modern mom. Today I’m sharing with you how I style my mom bag and what you can find in my mom bag.
What’s In My Mom Bag?
Just like all of my other purses, you can find the essentials in my mom bag. The Carry-All Tote has an adorable crossbody that can easily be removed when necessary. Inside it can easily fit my essentials such as my wallet, day of lip color, hair ties, and bobby pins. My keys can also be found in my mom bag. I love that inside the large compartment, Momkindness included a strap that you can hook your keys on to. This is crucial for me because I’m constantly losing my keys at the bottom of my bags. The last essential you’ll find in my bag is my cell phone. This bag has pockets on the outside which is perfect to store your phone for quick access when it’s ringing or when you need to capture an IG Story. Speaking of IG, are you following me yet?

Beauty might essential for most but I decided it deserved its own category. When it comes to my to-go beauty products, I keep everything I need in a small to medium travel bag in the large compartment of my mom bag. I keep my beauty products in a separate bag for quick access. If you open my makeup bag, you’ll find a compact for quick foundation touchups, mascara because surprisingly I often forget to apply at home, multiple shades of lip products (usually 5 different nude #oops), floss picks, chapstick, lotion, hand sanitizer, and a pack of makeup remover wipes.
It wouldn’t be a mom bag without baby products. The Carry-All Tote comes with a removable caddy which is perfect to pull out when your baby needs to be changed. Diapers, wipes, and diaper rash cream are essential to the caddy. In addition, I keep bottles, formula, Puffs and other snacks, toys, back up pacifiers, an extra outfit (or 2), and the changing pad that comes with the Carry-All Tote bag. The caddy is the best addition to the tote and allows me to keep my mom bag super organized.

Lastly, I keep a few miscellaneous products in the pockets of the large compartment. Those items include a small travel size first-aid kit for emergencies, a notepad to jot down thoughts/notes, a pen because nothing is worse than not being able to cross items off a grocery list, and of course gum.
My Overall Thoughts on the Momkindness Bag //
Momkindness knocked it out of the park with this bag. I love that the Carry-All Tote is fashionable while being extremely functional. I love that you can quickly change this bag into an adorable backpack. I would 100% recommend this bag to every mom.
PIN FOR LATER!
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek inside my mom bag. I’m also so nosy with what other women carry in their bags. I usually hear an item that I wouldn’t think to include. Now it’s your turn…
