At TODAY we take care to recommend items we hope you’ll enjoy! Just so you know, TODAY may get a small share of the revenue.
Using interviews with specialists, online reviews and personal experience, TODAY editors, writers and experts take care to recommend items we really like and hope you’ll enjoy! TODAY does have affiliate relationships with various online retailers. So, while every product is independently selected, if you buy something through our links, we may get a small share of the revenue.
TODAY anchor Sheinelle Jones was recently featured in Us Weekly's "What's in My Bag?" section. Jones explained that she actually used to read that section of the magazine herself. "When I got the call to do it, I was pretty excited," she said on TODAY.
Jones decided to do a live version of it on the show and she was joined by TODAY correspondent, Maria Shriver.
Let's just say, both ladies carry around some pretty interesting things!
We should note that these products were independently chosen by the TODAY anchors. The anchors are not paid to mention them and are unaffiliated with these brands. The products are simply some of their favorite things.
What's in Maria Shriver's bag?
Shriver took out a few different items. Although her bag was heavy, she said it was actually lighter than usual. "Well, I took some stuff out today cause I'm packing," she said. Aside from having "a lot" of lipstick in her bag and some hand cream, here are a few of the other things Shriver carries with her:
Julia Roberts (mom to twins Hazel and Phinnaeus): “I try to call my mother, Betty, with more regularity because I think, What if Hazel didn’t call me for two weeks? I’m able to see her mothering now from a different vantage point.”
- Static Guard Spray, $3, Walmart
Static Guard Spray
The first thing Shriver pulled out of her bag was Static Guard . The spray instantly releases the hold that fabrics have on one another, according to the manufacturer.
- Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil, $19, Amazon
Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil Go Packs
Shriver also pulled out these keto-friendly "power-up" packets.
- QuintEssential Hypertonic Elixir, $25, Amazon
QuintEssential Hypertonic Elixir
She also had one of these "seawater" packets in her bag. "This is what my daughter gave me to travel with," Shriver said.
Metallic Phone Case
- Seosto Small Crossbody Cell Phone Purse, $14, Amazon
seOSTO Small Crossbody Cell Phone Purse
This is not the exact phone case that Shriver has, but we were able to find a similar option. This one is a fun metallic like hers and features a long, adjustable strap as well as a place to store money and cards.
What's in Sheinelle Jones' bag?
Jones' bag included a leftover Christmas present that she never gave her son — a Pokémon gift card. "I felt like he had enough stuff. So, I didn't give it to him, so I was going to take it back," she explained. Here are a couple of other items she shared:
Repeat: I am not a short-order cook. "It's a child's job to learn to eat what the parents eat," says Ellyn Satter, a registered dietitian and the author of Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family. Instead of the all-or-nothing scenario, offer a variety of foods at mealtime: the main course, plus rice or pasta, a fruit or vegetable, and milk. This way, your child can eat just the pasta and the peas and get protein from the milk. "What a child eats over the course of a day or a week is more important than a balanced meal at one sitting," says Stephen Daniels, the chairman of the department of pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, in Aurora.
- Adidas Originals Swift Run, $45, Champs
adidas Originals Swift Run
Jones pulled out a pair of Adidas sneakers. Hers are from the Swift Run series . The sneakers are sold in kids' sizes, but they do convert into women's sizes. There are other color combinations available as well.
- Admirable Idea Pouch, $7, Amazon
Admirable Idea Pouch
Although this isn't the exact pouch Jones was using, we found a similar option that is very affordable. "So this is what I do now," she said. "Marie Kondo taught me to get a bag in a bag to keep things organized in the bag." Makes sense to us!
