Just lately I realized how much stuff I was carrying around with me on a daily basis and I may be a little excessive but… hey. Everyone has their thing, right. I think my various international travels/study abroad situations have made me paranoid that I need X at my disposal all the time so I’m carrying around half my life with me on an everyday basis – thought it might be fun to share and see if someone can top me ;D (To be fair, mostly this bag waits for me at work or only comes with me on at least one-day long journeys or important meetings/exams etc.)
1 Small towel + hair brush with mirror in unicorn design by Japanese brand Swimmer
3 Noreva Aquareva Hand Cream – gorgeous scent as all products from their Aquareva line. I cannot live without hand cream, I have a little tube in my bag, my make-up bag, my coat, next to my bed, in the living room…..
4 The Phantom Of The Opera hand mirror I bought when watching the musical in Japan. Japan has the prettiest merchandise ever!
5 Chewing gums (my favorite ones, Glamatic, also from Japan) and a ballpoint pen, because you never have a pen when you need one.
6 Tampons. For obvious reasons. Nothing sucks more than not having one of those little guys as a woman.
7 Glucose, for when your concentration lacks a good bunch. Typical student carry-around, I guess :p
8 Throat drops in various forms – my throat is always too dry.
9 Band-aids, because I am the clumsiest person EVER. Ask any person who ever knew me. I can’t handle this body.
10 Pain killers and other things one might need someday. Better be prepared, y’know?
11 Lip Balm! Because my throat and hands are not nearly as dry as my lips. It’s a curse.
12 Hair pins and ties as I always lose the ones that I have or they are breaking when I’m working (where I’m not allowed to have my hair down…being a barista and all..)
13 Sanitizing wipes. Sanitize ALL THE THINGS! (Learnt this from my boyfriend and my best friend who are both severe germophobes.)
….and that’s it already! ;D I admit that I carry a lot of stuff around but I swear, I need those things. All of it. I don’t feel comfortable when I wouldn’t be able to survive on my purse alone for a week (…you never know! Probably the „travelled-alone-for-too-long-syndrome“..)
What stuff do you carry around on a daily basis? Do you think this is over the top or could you even top me? :3
Lots of love,
