Juggling between office life and my busy travel schedule involves having the right things with me at all times. Whether I’m meeting with my team to hash out plans for Summer Fridays or hopping on a plane for my next work trip, there are essential items I must have on me for either scenario. You guys have asked me what I carry in my bag before, so I wanted to break down the winter edition of both my work and travel bags. I filmed a detailed YouTube video that you can watch down below, but keep on reading for a brief summary of what I put in each of my bags.
When I head into the office to meet with my team, I have everything on me that you should need for a productive work day and for important meetings. I always carry a notebook and my reading glasses for going over notes and drafting any ideas. I like to have my AirPods on me for any calls I might have to take or listening to music at my desk. Since I do take the time to meet with brands and potential partners over coffee or lunch, I bring my own liquid stevia sweetener and Listerine breath strips. I also always have my Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask on me as well as a nude lip liner.
Making sure that I have my essentials on my carry-on bag is just as important than packing my other things. When I travel, the most important thing for me is to stay hydrated inside and out. I always travel with my Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask, lip balm, and Emergen-C to give my immune system a boost. As an on-the-go snack I’ll have a collagen bar stashed in my bag as well. Other items to stay healthy and comfortable in the air include hand wipes, cozy socks, vitamins, scrunchies and more. I also like having a book with me to read on my flight and right now I’m reading Rich People Problems, which is part of the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy.
