I would think I was just nosy if I didn't know (for a fact!) that people love seeing what people carry around in their bag! Today I thought I'd share what I keep with me at all times. It can be tough to balance having everything you may need without being overburdened by things you will never actually use. I haven't quite found the right balance but here are the things I have been carrying along with me nonetheless.
I am currently using is this oxblood bag from H&M. I love the large size, and the style can appear casual or more professional which is great for my lifestyle as a grad student. I also am terrible about beating up my purses, so I love that it's affordable, making me not feel so bad about the wear & tear.
The colour is perfect for fall & winter, and I love the gold hardware.

So far what I have been carrying around works perfectly for balancing the student/professional role as well as being a "girl in her 20s". I'll throw in a large notebook or a book as necessary, and I have also been known to shove my 13 inch MacBook Pro in here.... I did finally purchase a bag meant for that purpose (which I am so excited about!)
What are some of your must-have products that you carry around in your bag? Do you tend to carry around too much or do you streamline your essentials?
