What’s In My Bag
If you are a busy Lady/Guy like us, you can probably relate to needing a “carry-all” to literally CARRY IT ALL wherever you go! These days, our bags is usually filled with our essentials as bloggers. Needless to say, it’s important to us to carry a durable, good-looking bag because it goes with us just about everywhere!
SO LET’S BEGIN WITH ME
1. LIP COLOUR
A girl can never have too many lips in her bag right? I always like to carry around a backup lip color and a gloss for photos. I recently got this Aerin lip conditioner and I’m in love with it because it already makes my lips so incredibly soft, and its so much prettier than carrying around a chapstick.
Usually I’d have more accessories in my bag .. but definitely one accessory I can’t live without are sunnies!I always like to bring a pair of sunnies just in case!
Some liquids I can’t live without in my purse are definitely lotion, face mist & perfume! When I’m going out my face tends to get dry, so having the face mist is great for hydrating my face after a long outing. And I love this little Dome perfume bottle that I’ve been using to just dab on my wrist and neck to refresh my scent.
I like bringing my Samsung phone & not to mention it’s a lot easier to bring around than a laptop. I can also easily access my files using google drive and other apps that makes my life easier! I also like having a random book in my bag just to give my eyes a break from looking at the screens every so often.
I’ve told you guys before that I like to write things down because I’m so forgetful! I like making lists of things that I have to do for the day, or writing down my schedule so I know what to prepare for. I normally prefer a bigger notebook, but how cute is this Pretty Little Things notebook? It’s great for just making small notes and little reminders.
Bringing a small clutch around with my makeup is an absolute must. Sometimes I can be out all day and I need to retouch my makeup from a day to night look! I love brush setbecause it has all the brushes I could need! I like to pack a few of the main ones to bring with me everywhere — my powder & eyeshadow brush mainly. Some of my makeup I also bring are my NARS blush, and Chanel eyeshadow.
WELL OVER TO ME
1. PEN AND BOOK
I’m barely a functioning person without my planner(books) so this is a must-have! I write down everything I need to do and remember throughout the day, plus refer to it as the day progresses to make sure I’m on track of my schedule.
If I’m carrying a larger bag that day, I’ll make sure to pack a water bottle to keep myself hydrated throughout the day–especially since I made it a goal to drink at least 3 litres of water a day. I also like to pack a few extra snacks like nuts and an apple or a protein bar.
I usually take my headphones in my big work bag but my iPhone earphones are best to fit in this small bag.
Both sunglasses and my regular glasses as well, you never know when you need sunglasses so I just put both in my bag just incase. I don’t carry a case around cuz it’s too bulky and won’t fit so I put them both in my glass cloth case.
5. MY PHONE
It needs no explanation really. It’s my connection to the world of social media, conversation cutter, awkward moment safety net, pocket mirror when I forget mine and boredom killer. It also tells me the weather, keeps my notes when I have no pen and paper, sends my messages and lets me make calls and also wakes me up in the morning..
It’s also better than lugging around a laptop and I love writing blog posts on it whenever am on a outing because I can’t reach my laptop at that moment. Having an external phone charger is a life saver too!
6. POCKET TISSUES
The solution to a runny nose, dirty hands (along with item, sweaty face or even an oily nose, gotta have it! Picture public toilets with no tissue rolls… Never stranded! Lol
A few extra things I usually have include eye drops for days when I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes open, a powerbank, a USB, and a tampon.
And that’s it! What are your every day essentials? Let me know in the comments below what you carry in your bag!
