8 In Lifestyle/ Minimalism/ Zero Waste

What’s in my Bag?

It is a common thing these days to show around in your blog what people usually carry in their bags. All items perfectly aligned in a aesthetically perfect flat-lay (although I tried really hard)…

I’m sharing my work bag but as many other women would agree with me, I have my out-of-work bag, AKA my beach bag, which is a lighter version of my work bag, which is also, my favourite!

Shopping 1

Living by the beach as I do, I constantly need a bag that is big enough for my beach essentials but small enough that it won’t be heavy on my shoulder. And this bag ticks it all! Plus, the guys over at The Unique Company donate a lot of their profits to animal organisations that provide support and care to abused animals! So if you are in need of a versatile (and great quality) tote, head to their website and pick one of the 4 designs.

What’s in my Bag?

But anyhow, here’s the bag that I carry to work every single day, which includes all my everyday essentials. Check what’s inside (anti-clockwise from the bottom right):

What's in my Bag 01

  • Wallet

    with cards, lip balm, essential oil roller, coins…

  • Reusable bag

    for shopping trips and any time I end up with extra stuff to carry around.

  • Water bottle

    My stainless steel bottle stays at work, so I carry this glass bottle when I’m out and about.

  • Spork & Straw

    For when I’m out, bring my food or I end up having take away, I use my own cutlery. Plus, to avoid straws, I take my own.

  • Reusable Coffee Cup

    for my everyday sacred coffee, amen. Buy yours here.

  • Reading Glasses & Sunnies

  • Hand Towel by Lalen

    This amazing little Turkish towel is my new favourite thing. They are extremely light, made responsibly and with organic cotton and bamboo, which makes them the perfect beach, travel and everyday towel. I use it to wrap my lunch, dry hands and cleaning messes in general.

  • Reusable Produce Bag

    For times when I need to carry small stuff or end up stopping at the supermarket to get last minute veggies.

  • Essential Oil Roller & Rose Water by Flora Remedia

    To make me smell fabulous and feel fresh all the time <3

  • Earphones, Diary and Phone

These are my everyday essentials and I usually don’t need anything else other than that. Which saves me a lot of weight to be carried around!

So tell me, what do you carry in your bag? Or what are your absolute essentials?

Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.

Peace & Love,

        I am currently making a bag to carry my reusable straw and straw cleaner in, but napkins are on my list too! I got my current napkin second hand from a family member, but its great to have a few hanging around
