Wait, before you say anything like, “who cares?.”I joined a blog challenge at a Facebook group, Bloggers Ph. You can join the group if you want! It’s my choice to run with it and I thought this can still be fun. Plus, I have again some recommendations too and you may find it useful. So, here comes an unusual blog content, first time ever to show and tell, What’s in My Bag? This seriously reminds me of a scene in the movie The Breakfast Club!
No need to share the brand of the bag, kidding aside, nothing fancy though. I just use a sleek backpack when I know I need to bring a heavy book for learning/reading and my trusty tab/laptop with me. As much as possible, I should use a backpack whenever I would be carrying heavy stuff as I have mild Scoliosis. If I’m going out with a lightweight, I use a typical shoulder bag.
Planner and Book
It is my first time to have an undated planner like this from Where To Next? If you’re interested in purchasing that planner, you must know that for every planner purchased, 5% of the profit will go to projects of the Aeta communities in Yangil & Botolan, Zambales. You may add to cart HERE. You may view more of the pages of the planner in my Instagram post. I like that it is very light and I have enough space for my daily tasks and calendar. There are a few blank bulleted pages like how a typical bullet journal looks like. I wish there are more blank pages where I can draw and add more trackers. I am into bullet journaling for quite a while now. Find out more in this blog here: Why I Started Bullet Journaling.

As for the book, I always or usually carry around a book to read especially when I decided to go out of my home office and do some work and fun at a coffee shop nearby. The featured book here is yet again, another book written by the new queen of fantasy, Cassandra Clare. I already finished the first book of that trilogy, The Dark Artifices. If you’re interested in the first book I wrote about it too. Check it out here: Lady Midnight.
Makeup Kit and essentials
Of course, women have a tiny bag inside a ginormous bag. Sometimes a tinier bag inside a medium bag. Can you relate? LOL. In my so-called ‘kikay kit,’ I have here my face powder, hand lotion (my fingertips are very dry) and dental floss. I usually bring 2 shades of lipsticks. In the photo here, I have one nude matte shade from Colourpop Lippie Stix and a mini Buxom lip gloss to add a little sheen on the middle of my lips (this is the trick to make your lips fuller and more luscious). Another lipstick shade is a red one from MAC (forgot the name of the shade, not really particular, and it’s a gift), this is what I use when I have a girls’ night out or when I am not wearing any other makeup. A swipe of lipstick is all good! I also can’t leave without a bronzer and highlighter, this one is from ELF and obviously, I bring a makeup brush for this. That Hello Kitty bottle is where I transferred my perfume so I don’t need to bring the big glass bottle.
I also bring with me tissue or wet tissue and hand sanitizer. Actually, the hand sanitizer is also double-purpose as it is a mosquito repellent as well. Its fume is a good fragrant scent from the plant Citronella. Andas is my new brand for mosquito-repellent. This is not sponsored. I buy Andas products from my aunt. If you’re from Baguio City, just email or comment below so I can give you her number. For those who are from other places, I am sure that there are authentic dealers of this brand too.
This Lenovo tab that can act as a laptop is a gift to me by my generous aunt. The tab has served me well for a few years now, although I bought a new heavy-duty one, this is what I bring and use when I go out. As you can see, I have two phones. That’s just how I roll, I can play and watch while I do other tasks like my social media job for brands I work for.
The Cash Keepers and Specs
I don’t want a short wallet that would force me to fold my bills so I really appreciate the wallet that was given to me again by my aunt. I also like to separate my coins from the wallet so it won’t be bulky. This tiny coin purse is a giveaway during the launch of Alunig’s products! I also have a book sleeve from Alunig. The brand is clothing and apparel line that serves as a tribute to culture—creating quality, unique and locally produced products that have a contemporary touch into culture. Check out more of their products in my Instagram post here:

I also bring my prescription glasses from SEEN and sunglasses, of course!
Marvelous powerbank and keys
Don’t get me wrong, the powerbank is not a Marvel-related brand. It’s actually Romoss powerbank! I just slapped a sticker of Antman there as I am a big fan of him. Also, as you can see, my keychain is also from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. If you haven’t figured it out, that’s Black Widow. I bought this key chain in Miniso Singapore.
So, there you go!
That’s what’s inside my bag! I hope you found something helpful! Thanks for swinging by.
