My Autumn On-the-Go Mom Kit!

This post is sponsored by Chevrolet Traverse.



Hey All!

I was recently asked the question, “What’s in your take-along beauty and “survival” kit this time of year?” Surely, I can answer that question easily! The contents of my “Autumn On-the-Go Mom Kit” (as I like to call it) don’t change too much all year round. I just add a few more items because I’m even busier this time of year now that everyone’s back at school. I keep my kit inside my purse and it’s with me everywhere I go. There are a few things I can’t leave home without and some things I add because they’re a necessity when you’re a working mom and picking up kids from school.

The first items are my planner and some pencils. Do you know how many times kids forget pencils for school? ALL THE TIME! Some classes require #2 pencils and it’s good to always have some stored away in my kit.


I also have my planner in my purse with me at all times. It’s to help me stay organized with all the carpool calendars to facilitate getting the kids to and from school and sports and more. I use my phone to keep track of my work calendar and my planner to keep track of the family schedules. It’s how I separate work from home.

When keeping track of things on my phone from my car, it would be great to have a car like the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse. It offers built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi®*. This would allow me to easily connect wherever I go when I’m safely parked and can check my phone. That would be a godsend! We’re on the market for a new car, so hopefully Santa will bring us a Chevrolet Traverse, as it’s the perfect family car. I digress…


Since I’m always like a crazy person running out of the house this time of year, I always have a nail file, nail polish, a pair of tweezers and some lipstick, as well, inside my kit. These are all must-haves, as you never know what you forgot to pluck during this crazy time. Yes, folks, women need to pluck some stuff! You’re also guaranteed to chip your nail polish or break a nail getting one of the kids into the car. You’ll need to have something to repair your nails, especially if you have a work meeting after you drop off the kids. They are truly a must-have!


This may not seem like a beauty kit essential, but when you have frizzy, curly hair like mine, it is! The autumn and winter times are the only times it actually rains here in sunny Southern California. I can’t let one drop of rain hit my straightened hair or it will turn into a big, frizzy mess. We can’t have that now, can we? No, sir!


I always like to smell fresh and clean, even when I’m running around like a mad woman. I also don’t like to have chapped lips, ever! I always have some perfume and lip balm in my kit as well.

This may seem a little weird to most, but I have a kit within my On-the-Go Mom kit. It’s a little kit I got on my wedding day, which has come in handy so many times; I don’t leave home without it.


Inside this little gold and white striped bag you see above you’ll find everything from bandages to breath freshener to dental floss, clear nail polish, stain remover wipes, aspirin, hairspray and more! Believe it or not, all that fits in that little bag! It’s an emergency kit within my On-the-Go Mom kit.

And last but not least, this is not so much a beauty item, but I always have it inside my On-the-Go Mom kit. I always have some candies and snacks for the kids and myself. They usually want a snack when we get stuck in traffic on the way home from school. It’s always good to have something inside your On-the-Go Mom kit to be ready for those occasions. I don’t drink much coffee, so the candy will give me a little sugar-boost pick- me-up if I’m starting to lose my energy. It’s not the healthiest fix, but during this crazy busy time, it gets the job done!



My Autumn On-the-Go Mom kit sure would be complete with a Chevrolet Traverse. It would be the ultimate thing I would take around with me wherever I went.

With spacious seating, ample cargo space and available safety and entertainment technologies, there’s no better vehicle to bring the family together than the Chevrolet Traverse.
