#TheInternDiaries: Must Haves

It's heeeere! Another post in my #TheInternDiaries series! Today I'm going to be sharing my must haves for your purse/work bag. These are things that I take with me every time I go out to a meeting. I am never without them and are always packed with me! So what are my must haves?


And yes it is just a coincidence that everything is polka dots.... I didn't realize it until I was writing this post. Lol. 

I always keep a pair of flats or sandals in my bag at all times. I like changing into these if my feet start hurting or I know I'm going to be walking downtown or all over and don't want to ruin my heels. 

I try and keep powder or a compact in my bag for touch-ups, especially if I am going to be out all day and need to freshen up before my next meeting/event. 

Lipstick is a must have. I never leave home without it. I usually take whatever color I'm wearing that day and have a fun color in my bag if I want to change it up. 

A planner really is a no brainer. I carry mine everywhere and use it religiously. Almost my entire life is planned out in that thing and I would probably die if I lost it. No joke. 

I like to keep either a rollerball or little spray bottle of perfume with me to freshen up from meeting to meeting. 

To hold all of my makeup and small miscellaneous items I usually have a cute makeup bag or pouch. I'm one of those bags inside of bags girls and it just keeps everything in place and not rolling around my bag. 

Gum is essential for me. I'm a compulsive gum chewer so I have to have it on me at all times. Plus, minty fresh breath. 

If I know I'm going to be out all day I take a double walled water bottle with me. It's super handy to have especially in the summer heat. 

A large bag/tote is oh so necessary to to carry all of your stuff in! I also usually take my laptop and charger with me if I'm going to be meeting with Kat. So a big bag is a must. 

Being a PR/events/social media management intern I am constantly on my phone. Whether it's checking emails, snapping pics or uploading content to Instagram my phone pretty much never leaves my hand. A backup battery is crucial. I can't tell you how many times my phone has died on me right in the middle of something important. Lesson learned. 

The last thing I always carry with me is a notebook and pen. I'm old fashioned and prefer to write everything down on paper than on my phone. I usually always take notes of what I need to do, events coming up, assignments, emails to send, lists to make, etc. 

Obviously I always take my wallet, phone, laptop/charger, etc. with me. I didn't include them because they're not super interesting. Lol. 


That is everything that I always, always, always keep with me in my work bag. Other miscellaneous things are my wallet, chapstick, keys and phone! 

What do you carry in your work bag? Anything I should add? Leave me a comment sharing!
