“My bag is a bottomless pit,” confesses Sarah McLachlan, the Grammy-winning mom of girls India, 12, and Taja, 7. “I put my keys on this bright bracelet that my daughter made, but I still can never find them!” Before hitting the road on a 33-stop U.S. tour (her eighth album, Shine On, is out now), the Canadian singer, 46, lets Us Weekly search her suede Jigsaw satchel.

Tiny Teachings

“I have The Pocket Pema Chodron, which is filled with little bits of Buddhist wisdom. I like to read it when sitting on a plane.”

All Hands on Deck

“Whenever my daughters and I go out to eat, I take Hello Kitty playing cards to keep them occupied in case there’s a wait. If they start losing it, I’ll let them play a game on my iPhone, but I really hate phones.”

Fake Awake

“Yves Saint Laurent has an eye stick called Radiant Touch that I keep with me at all times. It’s this sheer cream concealer that hides my dark under-eye circles. Most days, it’s the only makeup I wear.”

Sweet Surrender

“There’s always at least one Stella Bernrain dark-chocolate bar in my purse. And Starbursts: I plan to have one, then eat the whole pack.”

Secret Weapon

“For my throat, I’ve got oregano oil. You have to put three spoonfuls in orange juice to mask the heinous taste.”
