Whats in my bag – Van Der Spek La Grande tote

I took this quick photo at the bus stop the other day. I had a long day and was carrying quite a bit with me, which I have not done of late.

  • makeup bag (holding painkillers, plasters, nail file, makeup, wet wipes, glasses wipes, cotton buds)
  • gum
  • reading glasses
  • a gift which I had to pop in the post
  • my laptop
  • umbrella
  • gloves
  • hat
  • snacks
  • planner
  • phone
  • keys
  • pens

I kind of threw most of the stuff in as I dashed out the door. The bag was not heavy and got me through the day. I had a three hour gap in the middle so I took my computer to work on administrative tasks and blog posts.

This bag has been snowed on and rained on. The contents don’t get wet because I fasten the poppers, and I have waterproofed the leather so water is repelled. I am finding the little pockets useful. In them today are my keys and my Weleda Skin Food, which soothes my wind-chapped skin on icy days.

I love ‘What’s in my Bag’ posts, but I only have one bag and the contents are almost always the same. Do any of my readers want to share their bags for inclusion on my blog? If so, you can email me photos and a description at janet.carr@gmail.com. You can remain anonymous if you wish, or include a link to your website or social media.

  1. Thank you for that post, Janet. I always love “what’s in my bag posts”. You’re getting me confused here as you said on the 13/10 that you didn’t carry keys any more as had tags instead and now you’re carrying keys. Have you changed system?
