What’s In My Everyday Bag [The Fall 2015 Edition]

One of my favorite blogs is whats-n-yourbag.tumblr.com. It’s awesome to see what people are toting around, and I thought I’d share my current style.In My Bag

Kelly & Katie Alia Reversible Tote (black) from DSW – I can’t seem to get away from big bags.
❧ iPhone 4S (work) and Nexus 5 (personal)
Sol Jax In-Ear Headphones – audiobook listening whenever I have to wait somewhere.
❧ Pink polkadot purse – sinc my bag is black, I wanted a pop of color inside.
❧ Owl Coin Purse – just because it was too darn cute to reist.
❧Icebreakers Mints – or sometimes chewing gum.
❧ Book – The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma
❧ Nook HD – backup reading material, in case the physical book gets finished while I’m out.
❧ Planner (red) – A heavily customized ARC Planner (from Staples)
❧ Toiletries Bag

Toiletries Bag

Inside – Mouthwash, a ponytail holder, MAC foundation, emergency tampon, eyeliner, lipstick (MAC), lotion, Burt Bees Lip Balm, a pack of tissues, a Rejuvinating Face Wipe.

– Not pictured – sunglasses, because these are in my car, on my face or on top of my head.

What’s one thing you always carry in your bag?

  1. Glad to see you at our Small Victories Sunday Linkup. I’m a planner addict and had my eye on an ARC planner from Staples. As a mom of 3 klutzy kids, I always have kleenex, a first aid kit and this past week while we were traveling, even a thermometer! Someone always falls sick when we travel. It came in handy when our cousin got a fish hook stuck in him on our first trip fishing and even the nurse in the family didn’t have a first aid kit with her. Thanks for sharing with Small Victories Sunday Linkup. Pinning to our linkup board and hope you found some great posts to visit this week!

      @Tianna yes, yes, yes to the emergency stash. It has saved me more than once!

  3. I always carry my planner and Red Hot Fireballs.

  4. I love to check out what either women carry in their bag. I too am a big purse carrier, I always have what I need. Phone, camera, notebook, pens, etc. etc. Guess who everyone comes to when they need something? Definitely not the girl with the clutch! Lol.

    P.S. I love your bag!

    Gah that owl purse is so cute! I can imagine why you couldn’t resist that one. It’s a lot of fun to see what’s in your bag :). I don’t go out a lot, but when I do a bottle of water, my book or e-reader are one of the things I usually carry with me. I often try to have a spare plastic bag with me as well, in case I need one and so I don’t have to ask for one when shopping. I often carry around a pack of tissues as well and a small toiletries bag with ear plugs, patches and some paracetemol in case of headaches. A spare pony tail holder is a great one to have with you as well. I think I had one in my tioletries bag for a while, but nto 100% sure if it’s still there. I also often carry a pencil with me, in case I need to write something down.

      I always have my water bottle too Lola – usually in my hand. I tried to get away from huge bags for a while, but I’ve given up and gone back.

    I love these types of posts! Your bag is lovely, I always carry a huge bag around with me because I always cart around too much stuff. Aside from always having a book on me, I always seem to carry around at least one pen in my bag, just in case I’m in desperate need of one.

      I forgot about pens Hollie! I usually have one on me too.
