Let it be just a handbag that I carry to work or a luggage bag for any trip, I’m known to be an over-packer! So today I thought it would be fun to share what I like to carry in my bag on a regular day. I would like to make a confession though! This post is not a pretty version of posts you might be able to find on other blogs. Since I have a full-time job where I spend almost 10 hours of the day, there are many important things that I need to carry in my bag just to be prepared for everything.
First, let me start with the handbag I like to carry all my things! The Kate Spade Burgandy tote is my favorite one and has a lot of space to hold all my favorite items.
I think it’s self-explanatory on why I carry a sanitizer! Working the entire day on desktops and touch various hardware devices might leave my hands a little dirty so I like to carry a sanitizer to clean my hands regularly. Sanitizer from brands Himalaya and also from Purell are my favorites! 🙂
I have a very dry T-Zone so I like to carry a travel-size version of Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer in my handbag. I love this because it’s vegan, gluten and cruelty-free plus is extra moisturizing for my skin! 🙂
I have this Lip Balm in Strawberry flavor at my desk and Watermelon flavor in my bag. I like the texture of this balm and the natural tint it leaves on my lips. One swipe of this balm on chapped lips and they turn smooth and tinted in a couple of hours! 🙂 It costs $7 and is totally worth it for the amount of product you receive in the pot.
I like to use the Fossil small wallets in my handbag to have my cards and ID. They fit perfectly in my back pocket so it’s easy to carry it around at my workplace. This wallet is made of high-quality leather and is available in different patterns!
The Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion is smooth and works as a perfect hand lotion for me! I have a travel size one at my desk in the office, one in the car and also in my bag. I love its smell and how it helps to keep my hands extra moisturized.
I use Neutrogena Makeup Wipes to pat my skin when it gets oily or when my eyeliner gets smudged. Neutrogena released a new version of the wipes called Neutrogena Cleansing Facial Wipes Individually Wrapped – 20ct which has each wipe individually wrapped which makes it easy to carry in your handbag.
I have been using Maybelline- Colossal Kajal Eyeliner Pencil Black from the past 10 years and I still get surprised how pigmented and perfect look it puts together every time. Unfortunately, it is not sold in the United States at a drugstore but you can still buy it on Amazon.
I don’t like to wear lipstick every day at work but I do carry Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Lip Color – Touch Of Spice just in the case if I’m meeting any friends after work or if I’m off on unplanned trips. 😉
#9. Comb and Hair Ties
I don’t like to untie my hair after I tame it in the morning because it takes a lot of time to usually get my hair in a pony. But I do carry a comb just in case of a quick fix.
Fun story – I untied my hair once in the office gym, trying to put it in a bun. But, my hair tie broke because my long thick hair didn’t want to be tied into a bun and I had to ask a stranger for a hair tie. Since then, I started carrying a few in my handbag! 😀
#10. Breath Savers Mint
I love my Airpods! They are perfect to use at work or gym and I got a Minion cover for the Airpods case from a friend that I absolutely love.
#12. Car Keys and Phone
I think this is self-explanatory so I’m not explaining why I carry a Phone and Car Keys in my bag! 😛
