Christina Applegate, 41, is a busy mom to 2-year-old Sadie with musician husband Martyn LeNoble, 44. So, she has one requirement for her day-to-day tote: lots of pockets! Her canvas H&M bag fits the bill. Explains the creative partner of tots' clothing line FabKids.com (launching a boys' site August 15): "It fits diapers and sippy cups!" What else?
Time Is on Her Side
"I'm reading Keith Richards' memoir, Life. It's great, but anyone who has a toddler knows you only get through about one page a month."
"I use Koh Gen Do blush that has a sponge in the cap. I tap it on my cheeks and I'm good to go with almost no effort."
"A year ago, my daughter swallowed a rock. She pooped it out, and I was so relieved that I saved the rock in this heart-shaped box."
Fill 'er Up!
"I always carry Earth's Best biscuits for Sadie and a bottle of Fruitwater for me."
"Once, on a plane, an air marshal gave me his business card. He wrote on the back, 'Please excuse C. Applegate from any arrest that may happen in the future,' and signed it. It's my get-out-of-jail-free card!"
