What's in my Bag?

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.

What's in my Bag?
  1. Notebook (from WoW Video Game)
  2. Moleskine Planner
  3. iPhone 4 (Cat Ears case from H&M)
  4. Fossil Wallet
  5. Leopard Make-Up Bag
  6. Soap&Glory Hand Food
  7. Ray Ban Wayfarers
  8. Sharpie Pen in Black
  9. Keys with Bath&Body Works PocketBac

  2. Burt's Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm
  3. Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Tint
  4. Ms. Manicure Nail Files
  5. NYX Lipgloss in Natural
  6. Urban Decay Super Saturated Lip Pencil in Naked
  7. Post-It Notes-Small
  8. Papermate Flair in Blue & Purple
  9. Sharpie Pens in Blue & Green
  10. boscia Green Tea Linens
  11. CVS Tissues
  12. Hair Ties
  13. Bobby Pins

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?
