What’s In My Everyday Bag

Jun 04 2015

I don’t know what it is, but I find it really interesting to take a peek into what people carry in their bags. No really, I am not a nosey person πŸ˜‰ If you’re as curious as me about such things, you are in for a treat today as I am sharing a peek into my everyday bag. I am not a fan of carrying a lot in mine and try to keep it as light as possible ‘cuz let’s be honest – Carrying a heavy bag around all day is more painful than not having your beauty bag for a touch up. 

Since I carry my MacBook with me for work, I use the office city bag from Zara – It is a big black bag with gold zips and detail. Its big enough to fit my laptop and other essentials and is easy to carry as well. I absolutely love this bag as it perfectly suits my everyday needs. 
Techie Stuff: 
I love to work from coffee houses in Seattle, so I carry my MacBook and charger with me so I can settle down with a cup of coffee and do my office or design work. Changing up the workspace can do wonders to our productivity, I personally get a lot of work done in coffee shops than home. I recently got my first iPhone (6), I had been using android phones till now and the main reason I changed was the camera quality which I have heard is amazing in the iPhone.
Beauty Stuff:
In the beauty section, I mostly carry just the bare essentials – A lip balm, hand sanitizer and a hand cream. Currently I’ve been loving the Kari Gran lip whip *, its an organic lip balm and is hands down the BEST i’ve used so far. I love how it adds a subtle gloss to the lips while being extremely moisturizing.  For hand cream, I am in love with the Rose hand cream from The Body Shop, I’ve used this for the last couple of years and I can’t recommend it enough. Also I keep the fragrance samples that I save up from my Sephora purchases, a feel good spritz mid-day is refreshing.
Occasionally, If I am going out shopping or meeting friends – I carry my Shu Uemura eyelash curler and the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Cheat for a little touch up. 
Misc. Stuff:
I carry all my cash, cards and bills in this Fossil clutch wallet I got from Macy’s. I love its black leather with the gold detail and it can easily fit my iPhone too which is awesome. Although its almost summer, Seattle can be cold and windy on many days – so I always have a scarf on me for emergency. I also keep a small notebook to jot down ideas that hit me on the go!
That’s it, I try to keep it as minimal as possible. Ah finally, after an year I’ve done a what’s in my bag post. If you’ve done a similar post, please share the link your comments – I would love to read it!
What about you? Are you a light or heavy packer?

  • I always overpack my handbag and end up with an aching arm by the end of the day! That little notebook is adorable!


  • You always carry that lash curler around huh? I don't even curl my lashes in the morning, woops… πŸ™‚ You did get the best eye lash curler out there though. When I worked as a mua it was my go-to curler.

  • I've tried to minimize what I carry lately. Hand sanitizer and lip balm and definitely musts, as well as the normal essentials! Love these kind of posts!
