What's in my office bag?

As I told you in my life update post, I got a scholarship for the summer and it started this week. I'm loving it (ok, that sounded like McDonald's) and I think you should expect to see quite a few posts about it, like this one.

I already showed you once what I usually have in my bag (you can read the post here), and today I thought I could show you what I have in my office bag.


First of all, my bag is from a Spanish store named Paco Martinez. And I actually bought it this week because I wanted a nicer bag to take to the office and I was going to use the same one I use for uni but I thought it was too big for what I wanted to take with me now and this one just seemed perfect.

What's inside?


iPhone and headphones
Predictable, right?

Wallet
I don't usually need it, but... just in case.

Lip balm
I am absolutely addicted to lip balm. I always, ALWAYS take 2 with me: one tinted and other one with no color. And baby lips are my favorites at the moment.

Hand sanitizer
This is another thing I'm addicted too. I always use it after we go get some food, but I also like to have it in case I accidentally touch something that turns out to be dirty, specially since I have to use the public transport to get to work and you never know what you may find there.

Tissues
With the air conditioner and the different temperatures it's very easy to get a cold so this is something I need with me too.

Notebook
You may need to take some notes of things you don't really want to forget. Specially during your first days.

Pen
Well, you obviously need a pen to write in the notebook.

Pendrive
To be honest, I haven't used this yet, but I like to keep it in my bag in case I have to save something from my computer.

Agenda
I'm a bit in love with my new agenda. I have my whole life planned inside, so I need to take it with me all the time.

Perfume and lip gloss
You may remember this from this haul. It's a roll on perfume that also has lip gloss on the other side. I think it's perfect because it smells great and doesn't take a lot of space. I keep it in my bag in case I forget to put perfume on before leaving my house and so I can put lip gloss on too.

Water, food and chewing gum
I spend a lot of hours there and it's summer, so you should totally keep hydrated by drinking a lot of water. I also tend to get hungry, specially when I leave and it still takes me an hour to get home, so I take some food with me for those moments. And chewing gum because you sometimes get hungry or start craving food and this helps me ""lie"" to my stomach.

Extra battery 
As you know, I'm addicted to my phone. I spend a lot of hours in the office and the battery always dies, so I totally need this. Specially for that hour going back home in the public transport I mentioned before. I need my phone to be alive so I can listen to music.


As you can see, my bag is not very big but I think that has some benefits: 
  • It's super light.
  • It helps me to only take the necessary things. Like, for example, if it was larger, I would take my iPad with me every day, which I would never even use.
  • The best way to make everything fit is to place them vertically (as they are in the photo) which also helps me keep it tidy and allows me to see everything I have.

Question of the day

Do you have a summer job? If so, feel free to let me know what's in your bags.

  3. I wish my bag looked that pretty inside!!! Most of the time, it's half empty... Wallet, keys, phone, rarely a notebook/pencil and lipstick... Not interesting at all!!!

  5. I usually can't carry bags that are small...to much stuff. lol. But I love this one! Baby lips are definitely my new favorite!! My bags though are never organized and usually end up with gloss and stuff in them that I've forgotten when I switch bags.

  6. Your bag is such a great size! I love that it's really organised too, I can't stand it when my bag is all cluttered. Baby Lips are brilliant, I don't own any right now but I've tried them and love them! x

  12. Well done on the scholarship. You have just the right balance of practical and not a over heavy bag, Mine weighs a tone. The idea of having perfume in your bag is a great one then you can smell yummy all day Lucy x

  13. Having a bag that is not too big is a great idea. I fill mine with loads of rubbish and it is like carrying a lead weight around. I need to get some perfume just for my bag Lucy x
