First and foremost, I am very serious about backpacks & bags in general, and I have never loved a backpack so much. I found this beauty on Etsy. I’ve had it for a little over a year now and it’s just getting some wear and tear on it. I love the material used and my favorite thing is that it has a long strap so you can hang it off one shoulder, more like a purse, if it’s light. I carry a backpack every single day during the workweek. I just carry too much stuff with me for a purse. Here’s what I carry everyday.
Hydration is important and I always have my Hydro Flask with me. It keeps my water cold all day, and I only drink cold water.
I was itching for a new laptop case, but didn’t feel like spending loads of money on one. I found this one on Amazon, and it’s amazing. I love how it feels and it’s beautiful. I’m also using the Pilot Precise V5 RT pens, and am seriously obsessed. I am very specific about the pens I use & this one is great!
You might think I am crazy, but I carry two journals with me and my planner. I even purchased a planner case from Etsy. The blue & white striped one was a gift & it’s truly cute, but is made out of leather (for you vegan friendly folks) but you can find it here. I love that it zips and you can refill it. I use it for my blog ideas, recipes, etc. The other journal is my travel journal, that I found at a local craft store, but you can find a similar one here, and I use it for drawings, ideas, writing…it’s more of a personal journal. It’s also refillable!
I live for pouches. I have to have all of my little things in one place or I go crazy. This is from the Sophia Joy collection, which you can find at Target. In the colorful pouch, I keep my pens, headphones, and iphone charger. In the other pouch, I keep all of my toiletries. I keep my medicine & vitamins in labeled zips, I also have the most amazing hand balm samples from Aesop . I can’t afford Aesop, but I go in and listen to them talk and get samples instead : ) Handy tip for ya! I also get bad allergies and headaches quite often so I carry Sensory Therapy by Origins & Eucalyptus Essential Oil
My wallet can be found on Amazon. I recently switched from a huge wallet, which is the size I’ve been using for a very long time, to something much smaller & I love this wallet. My sunglasses are from Zenni.
