What Do You Carry In Your Bag Everyday?

Stylisted - What Do You Carry In Your Bag Everyday + Arden Cove

We’re guilty of having a heavy bag we schlep along with us to and from the office daily. Don’t even get us started on the bag we bring with us on vacations. But you preach packing everything in a carry-on bag, you say. Yes, we do, but that has nothing to do with our personal item where we shove everything else 😉 So, to hold ourselves more accountable for overpacking, we turned to Arden Cove, the sister duo who recently launched an Indiegogo page to create a line of anti-theft (!!) crossbody bags – perfect for our European adventures & those pickpocketers, as well as everyday city life here in the States!

Truth be told, we haven’t seen these bags in person, but when Arden Cove reached out sharing their launch, we couldn’t resist promoting 2 fellow female entrepreneurs. We were pleasantly surprised to see just how much the bag can hold. It looks like we wouldn’t have to get rid of anything in our usual bag after all.

So, getting on to the good stuff – what exactly we bring with us daily:

  • Lip balm – We swear by this one always and forever
  • Lipstick – We can’t just use lip balm! Red lips are crucial for a quick day to night transition
  • Hand sanitizer – We love this all natural one
  • Mini mascara – If your lashes fall throughout the day, this will save you
  • Pen – For obvious reasons
  • Wallet – For even more obvious reasons
  • Headphones – See the above
  • Sunglasses – Even though it’s no longer summer, the sun is still out!
  • Tissues – For impromptu tears and sickness
  • Bandaids – Blisters be gone!
  • Tide-to-go – Because spills
  • A small pill case filled with Advil, Excedrin Migraine (unfortunately), and Midol (for that time of the month)
  • Lady supplies aka tampons
  • Hand lotion – A cold month essential
  • Nail polish remover wipes – More necessary than you might imagine
  • Some sort of quick granola bar-esque snack for on the go times
  • A reusable water bottle
  • *On occasion, we’ll pack our Kindle or a book we’re currently reading. Sometimes the bag is too heavy with that, though*

See, we told you it was a lot.

We’re excited to be whittling down this list even further and even more excited to get our hands on one of these beauts! If you, like us, appreciate good design, female entrepreneurship, and thieves not being able to get into your bag, you can donate here. And did we mention it’s waterproof? As we live in Chicago, where it seems to rain continuously (who would’ve thought!) this is particularly enticing. Need more proof? See the below gif we can’t stop staring at – seriously, we’ve watched 6 times as we type this.
