Bag Essentials

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Cornered from all four sides and above from the torrential rain is basically how you could explain my weekend. But that didn't stop me from marathoning Orange Is The New Black, ordering take out and just chilling at home. An outfit post wouldn't have been useful since I've been a happy hermit crab at home lately, so I decided to have a go at stop motion on my camera. The whole behind the scenes set up for this was pretty painful (Exhibit A), but I'm glad that I finally know how to make GIFS properly and am able to make inanimate objects animate! Google taught me alllllll this.

These are the everyday items I carry in my bag - with variations on show. It's normally just one pair of sunglasses, and one lip balm/lip stick out of the bunch above. Phone, keys and the everyday wallet is a checklist mantra spoken to myself daily - but I didn't realise all the other sneaky essentials until it was laid out all to see. I found out that I always have a pair of eye drops to combat my contacts going awry, have the need to always carry a water bottle with me even if I keep losing every bottle purchased and have become inseparable from my Kindle that it needs to be carried even in the smallest bag I own. Little things such as having a cluster of silver rings just in case I feel the need to decorate myself are subliminal addition, as well as the Redken 03 Powder Grip - my first carry around hair product - which has been a lifesaver in combatting flat hair. I normally throw in a piece of outerwear or a binder + laptop combination if I'm heading out to uni, but this is basically the gist of it!

What are some of your bag essentials?


  1. This is awesome!! These gifs are so cool, you did an awesome job!

  2. Orange is the new black is such a good show! Can't wait until season 2 comes out. I love your tote btw. is that alexander mcqueen? Ive been analyzing my future tote bag for a while now. Im thinking american apparel is the way to go. I've been contemplating a LV neverful in the damier print but it's so common….and pricy! But it's also a classic…

  3. Love this post! My bag essentials are super simple; purse, water bottle and books. I'm more of a 'shove everything in pockets' kinda gal :)
