What's in my Work Bag?

As most of you probably know, I have started working as a Medical Laboratory Scientist mid-August so I thought I'd do a What's in my Work Bag? post for you all who want to have a nosey :P  Let me show you the bag first:

This is the bag I use on most days so that's why I chose it for this post.  I usually co-ordinate the bag with my outfit but this bag is big enough to hold everything including my lunch.  I got it from Bossini during some sale period and I like the muddy brown colour which matches most colours.  It has a little zip pocket at the bag and another one on the inside as well as two other inside pockets for a mobile phone and say a little mirror.  Let's get on to the contents: 

Apart from my mobile phone (which I took the photo with so it is not included in the picture), I carry with me my make-up bag; a notebook and pen so I can take note of new things/procedures; pink iPod Shuffle; some tissues; chewing gum; house keys which I attach to a butterfly key finder, a Betty Boop key-ring and a heart shaped key-ring with flowers, butterflies and a little rhinestone that Johan had given me as part of a Valentine's Day gift; and last but not least, my access card.

Here's what's in my make-up bag:

I carry all this stuff with me everyday and when that time of month approaches, I always make sure I have some sanitary towels.  In winter, I also like to carry with me an extra pair of socks should I happen to wet the others with rain.  So basically, all the contents are: Impulse deodorant, e.l.f. Shine Erasers, wet-wipes, comb, hand cream, glasses cleaning cloth, mirror, hand sanitizer, lipgloss, black kohl eye pencil, small nail file, basic sewing kit for emergencies and the lipstick I would be wearing on the day (shown here is the e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Colour in Natural).

What do you carry with you ladies?

  1. Wow you're so organised and prepared for anything!I just carry a rubber band, some hair pins, my eyeliner and compact powder in the zip of my bag. Then I use the rest of my bag to hold my lunch, pencil case and notebook..and I ALWAYS forget to carry tissues :P
