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 Calf 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. 🙂
These are from my friends. The pouch from The Body Shop was given to me by my best friend Biel 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. 🙂
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. 🙂
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. 😀
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. 😀
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! 😀

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. 🙂
