What's In My Bag? v.2

Because of extreme boredom, I decided to do another "What's In My Bag" post similar to what I've posted a year ago. Basically I just poured the contents of my current bag and share with you all my daily essentials. So sorry about the bad quality pics, I just used my phone to take them, hahaha. Anyway, here goes.


Current bag: Tory Burch Nylon Tote Bag

My current favorite because it's very roomy. :) My netbook + all my basic essentials can fit in here. Oh and it's water-proof too! :)

Current scent: Jacque's M. Aurora perfume

Was persuaded by a salesman at ATC to buy this. My usual scent is the forever D&G Light Blue (since college!), and this one smells sooooo close to that! I don't like fruity/flowery scents, and this one is perfect bec it has a sporty/cool kind of scent. Not to mention it costs P1,000 less than Light Blue!

Absolute must-haves.

Don't ask me why I have three scrunchies, I don't know as well -- haha! I always always forget to bring one most of the time and I hate it when I can't tie my hair into a ponytail during bad hair days. So maybe for the past week I kept getting every scrunchie I found around my room and stuffed it in my bag. :) Alcohol -- for sanitation purposes, and comb obviously.


Yep, I don't use a wallet. I used to have one but I am THAT lazy to put money in it that I always end up putting lose change in my bag pocket, my jeans or wherever. Took me a while to realize that my wallet just takes up space in my bag w/o any purpose in my daily rituals. So as you can see, my money is just stuffed inside my mirror pouch, lol. That gold little mirror is from my bestfriend, I think it's a freebie from a perfume she bought in France. And mints, because  I work graveyard and I NEED it.

Work ID.

I am so lucky to be part of this company because I work in a very laidback environment. My colleagues are superb too! Have you ever worked in a company where you instantly felt that you fit right in? :) Anyway, I changed the lanyard to a Blackberry one my ex-boyfriend gave me. Go Team Blackberry! :)


As you can see, I am not really into cosmetics. Just the basics: foundation and lipstick are all I need when I go to work. My gimik bag is way different though. :) Anyway, for foundation I have Chanel Luminous Creme Foundation in Wheat. I love that it evens out my tan and it's practically an all-day wear! Same goes with my MAC Lipstick in Captive, the color deposit is so generous that it lasts for a good 4-6 hours! So these two are a perfect combo for someone like me who isn't a fan of constant retouching. :) I also have Maybelline Lip Balm in Cherry which I rarely use (bec the MAC doesn't make my lips dry even though it's close to matte). I like Carmex lip balm better actually but I went on a night out recently and I left it in my other bag. Little trivia: I am allergic to lipsticks except for MAC, Maybelline and Avon.

Not-so must-haves.

I keep a second pair of glasses in my bag because in the event  that I left/lost the one I have on, I am at least assured that I wouldn't go partial blind when I am out somewhere. I started wearing glasses when I was 13, and my eye grade is now at 200/200. I have never gotten used to wearing contacts because they are so difficult to remove (or at least for me)! Haha. I only wear contacts when I go out on gimiks, bec who wants to look like some geek in a bar, right? I also have with me random cards (debit cards, school ID, SSS ID etc.), house keys and a phone bill (which reminds me, I've got to settle my bills asap! lol).

Mobile phone: Blackberry Bold 9700

Solid Blackberry user since early 2009. I started from Pearl Flip 8220, then Bold 9000 and now this. I already blogged about my love for Blackberry phones so I won't go into detail again, but I think the best thing about this phone is its amazing keypad and of course, BBM. :)

For my entertainment needs.

And finally, my ever reliable iPod Touch and Beats Solo HD headphones. I need to stay entertained all the time especially at work so I have to have these. There aren't much games on my iPod anymore (unlike before) because it's filled with educational apps for Baby Kiann (alphabet song, shapes, flash cards, etc). He is so addicted to using iPod that his old one broke already that's why whenever I am home this is technically his all-in-one toy.

So there you go! What about you, what's in your bag? :)

Hey Kat, you might have guessed that I don't carry a bag around! I did want to let you know that you might want to change the photo with your VISA card in it. I can read most of the numbers and someone who isn't as honest as me might want to try to use the card if they can make out all the numbers. Just a thought.

Kat said...

Wow, I didn't think it was readable until you pointed it out! Already edited the photo, thanks Tom!

I always need a flash drive... also a ballpen and a notebook and a tumbler of water .. :D

Kat said...

I need a flash drive too! But I think my flash drive was borrowed from me that day that's why it's not in my bag. :)

Believe it or not I ACTUALLY found this interesting. It's a great idea for a post too :)

I think men would love to read this. But as for me, I'm fairly basic. I'm not one of those women with lots of mysterious stuff in their bag. I have things I need for the day & that doesn't change much day to day, but I see some women sometimes, fishing for their purse when they're up to buy a coffee and I think 'Why can't they find their purse; what the HELL have they got in there?' So this was heaps interesting to me - thanks! And loved the photos! :) N'n.

Kat said...

Hahaha I perfectly know what you mean about some girls who seems like EVERYTHING they own is in their bag. :D

I'd love to see what's in your bag too! :)

Typical content of a gals bag. The most important is the Visa card. I believe that you are a shopaholic. Just don't abuse your CC.

Great post. I have a bunch of stuff in my bag. I don't leave home without my keys, my lipsticks and lipglosses, my sunglasses, purse, work pass, train pass and my iPhone. If I forget my iPhone I always go back to get it even if I'm late. It has everything that I need on it :)
