A friend was talking about how good ‘what’s in my bag?’ videos on YouTube are when I said I’ve never watched one. She insisted I watch one ASAP and as soon as I did it, I thought, ‘damn, I’ve got to do this in a blog’. So, here I am, about to show you what I have in my bag.
I’m not really a bag carrying person, normally I just take my clutch when I’m going out. But the times I do decide to take my bag, I fill it thinking I can’t leave my favourite things behind or they’ll get sad. So my bag is often heavy and filled with all sorts of random things.
I normally have only one journal in my bag. But if I’m going to another city, I take all my journals with me. Because sometimes when you get writing ideas, you want to write them in this one particular journal, and the next day you may want to write in the other one. Always be prepared. And keep pens, to write.
When Mariam sent me this penguin’s special edition of The Great Gatsby, she said she wanted it to be the book I carry with me on journeys. Since then, this book is often found in my bag. Also, because I love this book. 💁 I add a couple of more books if I’m going away for a few days.
3. Lip products:
I always carry a lip balm with me. In addition to that, I also keep my lip glosses in my bag because I’m the kind of person who needs to refresh their lip gloss often.
Baby lips and lip gloss from maybelline. One lip gloss from a random store. Yes, I’m not that brand conscious.
4. Lotion/Moisturiser and a BB cream:
This lotion is rather a new resident of my bag because Winters have just arrived. My skin gets very dry in this season so a lotion is a must.
Pond’s BB cream.
I love deodorants and perfumes. I literally take at least 3 perfumes and 2 deodorants with me when I’m going to another city.
Deodorant from Dove.
Hugo Boss perfume.
6. Eye Liners:
While I was taking this picture, I realised I keep my eye liners in my bag for no particular reason. It’s not like I go to someone’s house and then apply liner. I’m very confused. This could lead to an existential crisis.
Eye liners in black, green, purple, and brown from essence cosmetics.
I keep a few pain killers in my bag because migraine can strike at any moment.
Do I need to talk about its importance? 😛
I don’t listen to music in public places or when I’m visiting someone for a few hours but I often have my earphones in my bag.
10. Rest of the items:
This post is getting out of hand so I decided to make this category. I have a few old receipts in my bag, my glasses, house key and my clutch.
A random jewelry item can also be found in the depths of my bag. Also, hijab pins, totally forgot to put them in the picture.
Thanks for reading, people. If you decide to do a post like this, do let me know.
Until next time. x
