A typical day for me involves 8 hours of work with my daytime job, which includes assignments at my desk, meetings, training with co-workers, and a quite a bit of walking downtown. I take time out on my lunch breaks (Normally an hour) to set personal appointments, make conference calls, work on blog content, catch up with family, and edit photos. The list goes on. I also have to do a mild commute, so I could spend a lot of time in the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel traffic (Blah). I try to carry everything I need so that I don't need to make the hike back home.
I try my best to keep organized and carry essential items that will get me through my day. My favorite tote to carry is my Stella and Dot Madison Tech Bag. It’s very sturdy, with a spill-resistant interior. It has a removable strap, and you can zip it up for a smaller, classic shape or unzip it for more room. I can put everything I need in this bag, and it’s the perfect carry-on when traveling. Unfortunately this style is sold out, but you can shop some similar styles below. Here's what I pack in mine:
Leopard Print Calf Hair pouch: Anything from lipstick to coco butters and small sized perfumes. All of my feminine products go in here. I purchased this from J. Crew, which is sold out, sorry loves. You can find really cute alternatives at Target. Also shown in the photo are my Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in 'Lolita' (The PERFECT everyday lip color. I wear this daily.) and my Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mist that I got from my Essence Beauty Box.
iPad: Sometimes I need to do some quick editing or check emails. If I'm having lunch downtown and need to do some work with the blog, I'll pull this out.
2016 Planner: I told you guys that I have two planners. I like to carry this one at all times because it's light and tucks away easily in my bag.
Kate Spade Back up Battery Bank: I absolutely love this thing and recommend you get one if you're away from home for most of the day. I just charge this every night and use it all during the day. It's so cute and compact. I'm always on my phone so this just works.
iPhone: We all need our phones these days! Calling, texting, social media. What is life without the iPhone? Lol.
Eyeglasses: I rotate between my contacts and frames. Lately for work I've been wearing frames.
Kate Spade Work ID Holder: I work in a secure office, so we need our badges to get in and out. Plus it's pretty much required that all employees have to have identification at my agency. I carry mine in this cute Kate Spade ID Holder. You can find it HERE.
