How to know what you may need in your work bag?

Today I certainly do not feel like Carrie Bradshaw (in reference to this post). My hair, though newly washed, is up in a high ponytail with curly hair as I failed to get out of bed early enough to tame it. My shoes have given me blisters and my outfit doesn’t really match. But I like to think that days like these are gradually becoming less and less because I am more prepared for my 6.30am alarm and the early mornings. 

The biggest thing about working is making sure you have everything you may need for the actual office as well as the morning commute and just in case you are going out in the evening!

So after taking inspiration from many a ‘whats in my bag’ videos on youtube, here is a guide of items I personally feel are a necessity for all us working women of the world (and also a list of stuff that currently feature in my bag)


  1. The BAG: My work bag is a Fossil one, same as the picture but in a different pattern. £60 from TKMax 
  2. Wallet
  3. Coin Purse
  4. Make up Bag
  5. Phone
  6. Ipod
  7. Pens
  8. Oyster Card/Train Ticket
  9. Business Cards
  10. Kindle/Book
  11. Notebook
  12. Water
