What’s In My Bag?

I have succumbed and am finally doing this very popular meme. Since I’ll be out all day today, I thought about making a quick post sharing with you the contents of my bag.

This is the bag I bring to work EVERYDAY. As you can see, it looks very well-loved (read: used). I got it from White CalfΒ Β because it reminded me so much of the Proenza Schouler satchels, which I loved a lot.What I love about this is that it’s big enough to accommodate my work laptop and all the other things I carry about daily.

Aside from my laptop (and sometimes, my camera), here are the contents of my messy bag.

Ok, this is my new wallet from What Women Want that’s actually big enough to be a clutch. I got this from SM Dept Store last Friday. Its pale blue color and gold clasp really caught my eye. It also comes in a pastel pink shade, which is also very nice.

I rarely leave the house without my sunnies. This one’s from Forever 21. Especially at the moment when it’s really hot, it’s important that we protect our eyes from the sun’s glare. Doing that’s not only good for our eyesight, but also it can reduce the probability of wrinkles acquired because of too much squinting.

These are really important for my job since I often do some note taking. I need to always have these in hand in case I need to jot down some things that I need to communicate with the team at work. Sometimes, I just need a pen and paper handy to record the random ideas that pop into my head. πŸ™‚

These are from my friends. The pouch from The Body Shop was given to me by my best friend BielΒ while the coin purse was given by my other friend RJ who just came from Bangkok. I put smaller bills and coins in each so I don’t have to carry my huge wallet whenever I need to quickly run to the convenience store to buy snacks. πŸ™‚

More things that I cannot leave the house without – my house key, my USB, and my work and personal mobile phones. I am never at ease without them. Well… except for the USB I guess. That I can live without for a while. πŸ™‚

I already seem to have tons of essentials and I’m going to add more to my growing list. I cannot live without lotion! I constantly need it to keep my hands feeling moisturized. I’m a compulsive hand washer sometimes so my hands are always dry. I feel really bad when I don’t have lotion around after a hand wash. Carrying TicTac around is also good to ensure that my breath is always fresh. πŸ˜€

Last but not the least, a girl’s bag is incomplete without some girly items. Mine’s usually full of lipsticks but on this day, I had Revlon’s Lip Butter in Sweet Tart, Revlon’s Siren, Revlon’s Custom Eyes Mascara, Mary Kay’s Red Passion Lip Gloss, Mary Kay’s blusher in Shy Blush, and my very pink Smart Rocket Chic Plug It!

On the make up – well I like switching lip colors throughout the day hence the numerous tubes. I got pink, orange, and red covered with those three. The mascara was because I was running late for a meeting so I thought I’d bring it and apply it while on the taxi. The blush is very random since I don’t even have a blush brush in my bag. πŸ˜€

On the Rocket Chic – I bring it along in case I need Internet while meeting with clients. Last Friday, I brought it and a Globe mifi with me. I tried using the Globe mifi first thinking that it was better since it seemed like a more advanced gadget. The result? I couldn’t even open my Yahoo! Messenger because the connection was so slow! The Rocket Chic Plug It came to the rescue. I was really impressed with the fast connection. For the first time while using one of these plug its, I didn’t have to view my Gmail in HTML view. Haha Seriously! πŸ˜€

Hope this post gives you an insight on my personality and the things that matter to me. Let me know what’s in your bag too. I’m very curious to see if you guys carry around the same things as me or if you have other priorities. Let me know in the comments section below or if you have blogged about it before, drop me a link. πŸ™‚

  1. hi. you have a very beautiful bag. πŸ™‚
    I wanted to do a “whats in my bag” post, but the thing is, my bag is a perpetual mess filled with paper. hahaha. i love your bag. πŸ™‚


      1. I just really love your bag. hahahaha. I keep telling myself I need more mature looking bags, but I always find myself at Bratpack picking out a Jansport backpack. IDK. And my knapsacks are a mess. I wish i could just have those strollers from Elementary. More space, less hassle.


      2. You’re still a student so it’s ok! πŸ˜€ Siguro pag doctor ka na then you’ll be forced to buy “mature” bags. hahaha πŸ˜€ I remember those strollers. We used to lug them up the stairs then throw them down when it was time to go home. haha


      3. I hope when I’m a doctor, I won’t need to bring a bag at all. hahaha. Just my phone. πŸ™‚ Nakakaselos kasi. My batchmates look so mature with their shoulder bags, and I find myself choosing between Neon pink backpacks and Neon Blue messenger bags. hahaha. πŸ™‚ I heard nga from my friend in ADZU that they throw their strollers down the stairs. hahaha. πŸ™‚ It’s tiring when you have a stroller and you have to bring it up, but going down is always a piece of cake. πŸ™‚


      4. Well if you like color, there are always neon satchels to choose from! πŸ˜› Hehehe Ay nako, I’m not sure about you, but I can never leave home without a bag! So going to work carrying only my fone is impossible!


      5. hahaha! I would love to be as hands free as possible. so when I go out, if I can just stuff everything in my pockets I’m fine. πŸ™‚ hahaha. kaya I like military jackets. so many pockets. πŸ™‚ The satchels I see online look hard and small. Im still looking around for the hugs, worn leather looking satchel for men. πŸ™‚


      6. Thanks! πŸ™‚ those are beautiful. I was looking for something like this:


        hahahaha. seems next to impossible to find something like these


      7. Ah yes, haven’t seen anything quite like those yet. Try SM Department store though. πŸ˜€ I was there yesterday and their bag section is updated with the latest trends πŸ˜€


      8. ohh. okok. hahaha! πŸ™‚ Sorry. I thought you were in Cebu. Because there was someone in the group who’s also Cebu based. hahahaha πŸ™‚


  2. I love your bag Mich! πŸ˜€ I don’t own a satchel yet, but I plan on getting one. Maybe I’ll get one from White Calf.. πŸ™‚ Anyway, things I can’t live without bringing are: camera, cellphone, money pouch, umbrella, hand sanitizer and tissue πŸ˜€ These are ALWAYS inside my bag.. XD


    1. Yeah this bag also comes in navy blue and green πŸ˜€ I bet your bag’s also heavy with the camera and umbrella in it πŸ˜€


  3. I loooove the bag labs! ❀ wooooh. daming kasya jan ah.. πŸ˜€

  4. Hi Mich! Oooh, I simply love the contents of your bag especially your clutch/wallet with the gold detail, I have a similar clutch with the gold lock, the bag is in gray though. I super love pastels! :))


  5. i always have tic tac in my bag, too! πŸ™‚ but i love the orange flavor… I love pouches in my bag to organize my things.. which means bigger bag then small bags inside.. lolz… but now, i tried to minimize things i carry.. just the-must… pens? oh, i wanted every color of it, too! but i would just lose them apparently 😦 nice and dainty satchel you have mitch πŸ™‚


  6. I love how spacious and stylish your bag is. Also, I became more tempted to replace my Internet stick. Haha. If the plug it is pretty and fast as it claims to be, then I might as well try it. πŸ™‚
