What's in my Dainty Bag?

Ever since I started teaching, I always bring a huge bag anytime, anywhere. It's safe to have a big bag because all my essentials can fit it in. I can toss just about anything inside my bag without thinking much if it will fit or not. 

Recently, I got this new limited edition tote bag from Lacoste. Despite saving for the wedding day, I reminded myself that it's okay to get the bag as a reward for my hard work. I've become addicted with the brand because it's very sturdy and it can carry just about anything. My sister gifted me a Lacoste Original design tote bag last Christmas and when I got this, I know then that there's a tendency that I might build a Lacoste bag collection soon. Hopefully! ♥


The bag was super cute and dainty just like how I want it to be. Inside it were my daily essentials like food, wallet and the like. Let me tell you my top 7 things that I need to bring before leaving the house. (In no particular order.)

1. WALLET 
Of course, I can't leave home without this. I have a Fossil wallet which was given to me by my student whom I became friend after I handled them. She was of my advisory class during my first year of teaching. Thanks Micah. Love you. ♥

2. CELLPHONE
It wasn't in the photo because I used it for taking the photo above. It's my call, text and net surfing companion. Cellphone is also a necessity for me because it's also what I use whenever I want to take photos on things to blog. 

3. DRY AND WET WIPES
I just can't stand not having wet and dry wipes/tissue. It's my all around cleaning companion. For cleaning my desk, my hands, my bags, my shoes, everything! I always need to have this every time. 

4. FOOD
Since I am teaching the whole day, I need to have a food supply on my bag for energy. It may be anything from fruits to chocolates to chicharon. I love eating! ♥

5. KIKAY KIT
What's the use of all my beauty products from sponsors if I won't use my kikay essentials right? Haha. I wear makeup everyday in class because I don't wanna look dull and tired. Despite being tired, I always need to look fresh in front of my students so that I'll get their attention. 

6. UMBRELLA
Weather nowadays is really unpredictable so bringing an umbrella is a MUST for me. I commute daily and I need to be always prepared.

7. LOCK AND LOCK MINI MUG TUMBLER
Since I am teaching, I always need a tumbler for my water because I talk non-stop. I always drink several times in an hour. Thanks to my Lock and Lock, bringing tumbler in class is a breeze. It's a newly launched tumbler that's safe to use. It's non-toxic and odorless. It's compact and light and fits even in my small bag. It also keeps my drink warm or cold for so many hours. My tumbler before was a huge mess. It spills even when it's tightly closed and the warmness or coolness disappears after few minutes. This is th esolution if you have the same problem as mine. #LockedInLove.

  20. You are 100% correct that women should have a bag that is big enough to carry our essentials. I'm drooling over your Lacoste bag, they really offer great colors and classic bags!
