Some of my favourite YouTube videos to watch are what’s in my bag vids. I don’t know why they are so interesting, but I have always had a fascination with the things that people carry around. I did a what’s in my bag post about a year ago but I thought I would do a work bag version because apparently I carry way more stuff than just what’s in my regular handbag.
My work bag at the moment is the Michael Kors Hamilton large tote in black with gold hardware. I did do a review on that bag when I got it, but to sum it up, it’s a roomy bag, perfect for work, travel, you name it. It’s a little too big to carry on the weekends, but I love using it Monday to Friday 9-4, or as a carry-on when I travel (my MacBook Pro or iPad fit perfectly in it). It features two drop handles as well as a shoulder strap for when you want to be hands free.
Here’s what I keep in it:
- Wallet – this is the same wallet I have been using for a few years now. I got it at Sears a while ago for like ten bucks and love it because it can hold a lot of stuff (I have a lot of rewards cards).
- iPhone 4
- Certs and Second Cup breath mints
- Hello Kitty by Sephora comb
- Couple bandaids and floss
- Paul Frank container with paper and a pencil (I got this in a Happy Meal at McDonald’s)
- My keys – includes rewards cards from Sobey’s and Sally’s Beauty Supply
- Michael Kors card case – I keep my business cards in there
- Clinique mirror
- Coach cosmetics pouch – has Angel perfume, ELF concealer/highlight, a pen, Rosebud Salve, a highlighter, random staples, a Sephora mirror, and Aveeno hand cream in it.
- EOS Hand Balm
- A pen
- Christian Dior Glossy 1 sunglasses
- A lint roller from Petco
- A pen cap (not sure where the actual pen went though)
- OCC Lip Tar in Hush
- Chanel Coco Rouge Shine in Liberte
- IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Balm in Je Nais Sai Quoi
- EOS lip balm
- Joe Fresh matte lipstick in Bubblegum in a Clinique All About Eyes jar (the lipstick broke so I put it in there)
- A USB flash drive
- A USB drive from Rimmel London (the one shaped like a mascara tube)
- Lippy Girl lip gloss
- Lippy Girl Sha-Zam lip balm
- MAC lipstick (I can’t remember which one this is)
And that’s all! When I look in my bag it doesn’t seem like a lot of stuff, but when I was writing it out, wow, I have a ton in there.
