What’s In My Bag
August 23, 2016

It has been a year since I posted about what’s in my bag. It’s due time for a little update~

This time around, I’m carrying around the Coach Stanton Carryall bag. I’m switching between the Coach Swagger bag from time to time. Since this bag is smaller, I’m pretty limited on how much I can carry. It’s a good thing because I have to think twice before carrying some extra junk + weight!

P.S. I’m still looking at you, Small Banner bag at Burberry… #SeptemberGoals

Here’s what I have in my bag this time around:

  • Coach Wallet
  • Coach Sunglasses
  • Car Keys
  • GoPro Hero Session
  • Ardium Pouch with House Keys Inside (Thanks, Tara ♥)
  • Polanfo External Power Bank + Phone Charging Cable
  • Gum
  • EOS Lip Balm
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Travel Size Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+
  • MAC Eyebrow Pencil
  • 3x Pilot G-2 Pens

The biggest estate in my bag is my Coach Wallet. I was looking for a cute white wallet from Coach for a good 3-4 months before settling for the Turnlock Envelope Wallet. Trying to find a wallet that matched the Swagger styling was a fun process but no dice… Either way, I’m still loving this alternative!

Even though I don’t use my GoPro all the time, I still carry it around in case the mood comes. Considering how cute and compact it is, I don’t mind it taking a bit of space in my bag!

I used to carry a couple of notebooks around for quick notes. In the recent months, I finally learn how to utilize my phone for this so there’s less weight to carry around. Thank goodness for Google Keep~

What’s in your bag?

    Ooooh! I’m loving the way you accessorise your stuff 😀 It’s clear you really like white and it fits you. I’d dirty mine up quickly if I were to get a white bag!

    And eeee! You’re still using the Ardium pouch? (Honestly, I forgot about that! i remember the planner, but not the pouch X_X;) It really gives a nice contrast to your other contents!

    My next thing to buy is a new wallet, but I haven’t found one I want yet. ~_~ I’m looking for a particular style. I may look into the one you got and see if it’s the kind I’d been looking and wishing for!

    I hope you’ll get that dream Burberry bag one day! 😀 If you really want it, it’ll happen ^^ Thanks for sharing what’s in your current bag. I enjoyed seeing a bit about your everyday life.

    Your photos are so beautiful OMG. And your bag is to die for. Haha. It’s so easy for me to get white stuff dirty, so I usually shy away from the bright colors XD

    I keep a power bank in my bag as well! I don’t know what I’d do without it, since I’m very dependent on my phone 😐

    That last item (Pilot G-2 pen) made me smile because I love that pen as well, LOL!

    I really love the photos and a glimpse into what you carry with you. 😀

    I love your bag and wallet! I like that they match 🙂 I think I need to switch to a smaller purse because I probably carry wayyy too much stuff. That’s a good point that a smaller bag makes you really think about what you bring!

    I have a camera in my purse all the time even though I don’t always use it. You never know when it’ll be handy! I also carry a power bank now because Pokemon Go is such a drainer, haha.

    I like how you arranged the items for the photos by the way!

      I enjoy being the kitchen sink kind of girl, but carrying too much = useless weight most of the time :(. Pokemon Go is the main reason why I always charged my phone on the go ?

    WHICHHHH EOS LIP BALM DO YOU HAVE?!!! I have the peppermint one and it’s a light blue and I was wondering if yours is the same or is another blue one. Nick’s sister bought a whole box online. xD

    My bag is really huge but I carry very little in it… I do want a smaller bag but I don’t know what I really want in a bag.

    I have such a small wallet hehe, as I am not such a fan of the bigger ones like yours 🙂

    I used to carry a notebook around but now I write notes on my phone. I do still like the idea of carrying a notebook and pen, but I have stopped because it doesn’t seem like there is much of a point anymore. I just love randomly taking notes!

    • Nancy ☆ September 7, 2016 at 10:48 pm

      My EOS balm has no flavor :(. I got it for free at a club meeting – one of the accounting companies did a Q&A session ?. I love peppermint lip balm! It makes your lips feel fresh every time.

      I used to hate big wallets but something clicked (or unclicked) in my mind Soooo I wanted one suddenly. If the rest of my bags end up being small, I’ll consider finding a white wristlet :). I used to carry a notebook around but it takes up precious room D:

    You and Tara are literally bag goals right now for me! 😛 I love this bag, it’s seriously so cute. I’ve been looking for more high end bags recently since my favourite Marc B bag broke on the third day of my internship -_- I’m always scared of getting white/lighter coloured bags so it’s ALWAYS black/brown/navy for me!

    I love how everything in your bag complements the bag itself, they look like they belong there haha! I love Google Keep, definitely handy for those times where you don’t want to carry a lot 😀

    I always carry my camera around because the mood does come out sometimes 😀

    • Nancy ☆ September 7, 2016 at 10:44 pm

      High end bags are worth the investment! You get happiness out of it ?. Only thing I would think about is how much is too much for a bag? White bags and jeans = bad combination. I stained my original bag from having the purse rub on my jeans :(. There’s leader cleaner and moisturizer but it can only do so much after the stain settles. Grr!

    I should probably do another “What’s in my ____?” post because I’ve started carrying a purse just because a clutch kinda got annoying/in the way a lot. ?

    You seem to fit a lot of stuff into your bag, though!

    • Nancy ☆ September 5, 2016 at 11:54 pm

      Do one!!! My bag seem pretty small, but it’s surprising to see how much fits inside!!!

    I love seeing what other people have in their bags. In my bag is always a mess. I always buy big bags because I have to carry with me water, food, my stethoscope, my hospital costume, my tablet etc. I think this year I am going to buy a backpack, cause it’s really uncomfortable to carry a bag this heavy. Usually I have my wallet, phone, keys, make up, sunglasses. These are things that are always with me. And then I add a lot of things until it get really heavy.

    • Nancy ☆ September 5, 2016 at 11:54 pm

      You have a legit doctor’s bag ?. If you’re carrying around a lot of stuff, it’s better to get a backpack so the weight is distributed in both sides.

    first off, let me start by saying that i love the banner of this post. the gradient colors are so fitting and compliment each other 😀

    second, is it funny that i am 21 and yet i still prefer cute, harajuku-ish backpacks and not lady handbags? lol. my parents are asking why i’m still so childlike pfft (i still love graphic tees too!) i think the only lady handbag i like is the classic chanel’s flap bag but i’d rather splurge on beauty products than bags so…

    omg you have a gopro!!! and an EOS lip balm! LOL
    how’s the lip balm though? i’ve heard of some people saying that EOS is overrated and it’s only because the packaging is cute. the balm isn’t as moisturizing as everyone claimed to be, hm..

    like you, i carry myself lip product(s), wallet, hand sanitizer (sometimes facial wipes), powerbanks (it’s ESSENTIAL for a pokemon go player) and lotion (mine’s hand cream though). i think what i carry in my bag may or may not be in the same quantity as you LOL

    • Nancy ☆ September 5, 2016 at 11:52 pm

      Thank you, Alice! I’m trying to get on your game ?. It is fine that you still love carrying around harajuku-like bags. There’s no written rule anywhere about needing some designer goods.

      EOS is okay, and I don’t mind reapplying it on every other hour. Though, this brand is my favorite so far for lip balm. It’s sturdy enough that it doesn’t melt easily.

    Love, love, love this bag.

    You’ve actually reminded me that I need to get myself a power bank, as well. Coincidentally, I now have a Coach bag as well! (I swear I’m not trying to be you XD) My cousin had one lying around that she doesn’t use, and it’s a really nice off white colour with navy blue trimmings. I use it all the time now 😀

    I still carry around my planner. I used to carry around a notebook, as well, but I use my phone now 😀

    • Nancy ☆ September 5, 2016 at 11:49 pm

      No, no, buy all of the Coach bags you want ❤️❤️. I love physical planners! I carry mine around in my lunch bag ?.

  11. Amy ☆ September 3, 2016 at 12:28 am

    I love your bag! It’s so cute. I think I’ve probably said this before on a different post, but I do really love it.

    I wish my bag was as tidy as yours. Mine’s always a mess, so I’d probably never be able to do a ‘what’s in my bag’ post. It’d involve way too many sweet wrappers for my liking!

    I need to start taking my power bank out with me. My phone always dies on the way home from work, so I really need to remember it.

    Enjoyed this post!

    • Nancy ☆ September 5, 2016 at 11:46 pm

      Thanks, Amy! Power banks saved me in so many situations! It helps to have one that lasts for more than two charges – just in case!

    Your photos are so good, they look like they’re part of a catalogue or a magazine article haha

    I do love designer handbags. (Who doesn’t?) I own Michael Kors and Calvin Klein handbags but unless I’m expecting it to be a light day I usually just stick to the more casual larger shoulder bags haha They are MUCH more convenient for me on a work day and can still look good. I get frustrated with the nicer more formal handbags because none of my medical stuff fit inside neatly!
    Currently I’m using a Kipling shoulder bag. I carry with me: my phone, my tablet, my charger, my scrubs, my stethoscope, hand cream, my wallet, a notebook, *so* many pens haha, my hospital ID, my pen torch, some analgesics/antipyretics incase I get sick but can’t take a break and must carry on- quick relief!

    I love your idea for this post so much I might do one! haha Talk about being unoriginal =P
