I was treated to a new bag for work last week, which I desperately needed. It’s this gorgeous grey handbag from New Look, it’s roomy, has sections and sits really nicely on the shoulder which makes it perfect for work. I thought I’d share with you the things that I hoard in the depths of my work bag. I love reading these kinds of posts as I’m so nosey so I hope you do too…
This is an essential as you never know when you’re going to need money but it also holds my ridiculous collection of loyalty cards which are actually really handy. This purse is from Ted Baker (it’s actually my sisters, thanks Katie!) and does the job perfectly although when I have a lot of change in it I have to put a bobble around it for it to close which isn’t such a good look.
PENS & POST IT NOTES
Pens are an essential, obviously, as I’m always writing, whether that be for work or notes on the go. I always have a big stack of post it notes, these pink love heart ones are from Tesco.
I am the queen of lipbalms so I always have a stock of them in my bag. I’ve also recently discovered a love of lip glosses so I’ve got this Soap & Glory one, one from Primark and one from Makeup Revolution.
I’m constantly getting mucky in this job and I’m also suffering with hay fever so I always have packs of tissues to hand *just in case* and they do come in handy.
I received this bag in my blogger mail and it’s really useful to keep in my bag with some bits in it. In this bag I keep, a hand gel which is a complete necessity for me. I also keep pairs of gloves for work which go hand in hand with the gel to make sure my hands are kept clean. I also have paracetamol, eye drops, glasses wipes, paperclips, a makeup brush and concealer.
I’ve recently got my hair cut short short and I’m still adjusting to it so I keep this pink Tangle Teezer in my bag and I use it SO much hence why it’s a bit battered. I could really do with getting one which has a cover to save it getting mucky in my bag.
DIARY & WORK DOCUMENTS
Let’s not forget this is my work bag so I always have my file in their which has my documents in it. I also have two diaries which both serve different purposes but I need both at all times to know what I’m doing and that my life is on track.
I always have my lanyard to hand, it isn’t something that I have to wear everyday but when I’m working in the community it’s something that I prefer to have on.
I always have this little notebook in my bag, I write everything and anything in this I’m not strict with this at all and love jotting away in it. It was a present from my brother when he went on holiday and I absolutely love it. I sometimes also keep my blog notebook in there so when I get a minute I can jot down some ideas.
I always try and have a reading book with me for when I have time in between calls to kill. The one that I currently lug around is this book called ‘The Darling Buds of May’ by H.E.Bates, I’m only a couple of chapters through but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far.
DRINK & SNACKS
I drink far too much fizzy pop but that does not stop me from putting a bottle of Pepsi Max in my bag most morning, I do sometimes put a bottle of water in instead. I always have snacks as well, whether it be crisps, Wethers Originals or an Easter Egg, they’re always to hand!
I hope you enjoyed this post, I loved writing this and it was the first one of these that I’ve put out so I do hope that you enjoyed it!
