I have been putting off this post forever. I don’t even know why, but I always love to read “Whats in my bag” posts so it is time to do my part and share. I don’t carry a ton in my bag, but there are a few daily “essentials” that I feel like I always need at arms reach.
First of all lets talk bags. If size and weight was not an issue I’d basically carry a diaper bag around constantly. I love having the ability to toss a snack, water bottle, or recent purchase in my bag. It just makes life easy. Sadly, I don’t think carrying around a giant bag really works for me so I strive to keep myself with something big enough for the essentials and a little more, but not huge.
I am currently using this bag and it is perfect. I love that is a mix of casual and professional. I can wear it to work or to yoga without feeling over or under dressed. I do like to change my bag out on occasion, but I don’t like to feel like I have to. (Budget friendly option here.)
Wallet: Kate Spade (Similar)
Lip balm: Carmex
Nail file: These are inexpensive and disposable.
Spin pins: I love using these for quick top knots on the go. The best part? They don’t leave bumps in your hair like a regular ponytail does. I like the gold ones as it adds a touch of class.
Notebook: I usually have a small field style notebook like this.
Headphones (for audiobooks): Regular apple headphones.
Powder: I’ve been enjoying this light powder foundation from Tarte. Perfect for on the go.
Zip pouch: I like to carry a the smaller items in this little pouch from Tarte. I love this leather one.
So this is a peak into what I carry. What are your daily essentials?
