Back in June, I did a What’s In My Bag? post that seemed to be met with success. That post was the infusion edition, but I’ve decided to do another one. This is the carry-on bag edition, since so many college students are traveling back to school this weekend after the storm. Safe travels to everyone who has to experience this storm! Luckily I don’t head back to Nashville until after my infusion, so Boston has until Tuesday to pull itself together.
Not only does this image serve as the visual introduction to this post, but it also shows the bag I use. My large Longchamp le pliage tote is the perfect for carrying lots of items because it’s roomy but lightweight before you put anything in it, so you know it won’t get too heavy.
I can’t travel without my computer, iPod, computer charger, and headphones. I also don’t travel without something to read. I’m currently working on The Heir Apparent by Jane Ridley, which is a biography of King Edward VII of the United Kingdom. But I obviously need my Kindle Fire on hand in case I finish that and need something else to read.
My Moleskin has all of my blogging notes. To-do lists, post outlines, post brainstorming, schedules, etc. I need it in case inspiration strikes while traveling! And in case it does, I use these pens from Target. I love adding a bit of extra color into my life, as you can tell with my Kate Spade wallet. It’s a little bright.
More writing utensils (in a plaid Ralph Lauren makeup bag), sunglasses, bag for emergencies (it as bobby pins, etc.), coin purse, plenty of lip products, pain reliever, my travel pill box, inhaler, mints, hair supplies, bandaids, and sunglasses. These are all of the little nooks and crannies of my bag.
Unfortunately, this is the work part of the post. Traveling back after vacation means traveling back with work. Luckily, my planner is great. (Check out my review of my Erin Condren teacher planner!) Behind the planner you can see the very tip of my grading that I brought to Boston with me. And, of course, I need my glasses. They’re not for reading – I’m nearsighted and wear contacts most of the time – but you can’t see them if they’re in their case, so here they are.
