Work Bag Essentials + Back-To-The-Office Survival Kit

September 23, 2010
It’s back to the grind and I am still trying to adjust to my new job. Trying to get used to the office work wear, pumps (instead of my comfy sandals), having to be stuck in one building for 9 hours straight, office politics. I’ve done my best to fill my work bag with a few little luxuries to brighten the work day but I’ve still been missing quite a few office necessities that I keep forgetting to pack. This problem was miraculously solved today as I received the best package from my sister: The Back To The Office Survival Kit. Cutest thing ever. I now have everything I need to survive the work week.

First up, Inside My Work Bag: I amazed even myself that all this fit inside, but you can see how I was missing quite a few survival necessities

LV Epi Jasmin Purse, LV Damier Azur Alexandra Wallet, Paul & Joe Makeup Bag, Miscellaneous Candies, Chewing Gum, Splenda packets, Red Moleskin Notebook, L’Occitane Hand Cream

Le Metier Marchesa Card, Chanel Rouge Coco, Chanel Rouge Allure Laque, Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss, Edward Bess Lipliner + Compact Rouge, Laura Mercier Mini Brushes, Chantecaille Lip Chic, MAC Mini Face Brush, Chanel Powder Foundation, Paul & Joe Lip Lacquer, Lancome Juicy Tube

What came in the mail today, best package ever! All the practical things I need for office survival (instead of the million lipglosses I crammed into my makeup bag):

Close ups of just a few of my favorite things she sent:

(My sister can read my mind, I was thinking about this same thing the other day)

To my dear sister: thanks a million 🙂 All the little notes made my day and brought a smile that washed away all the stress and anxiety from the office. I only wish she lived near me instead of hours and hours away.

Working girls – what are your work-bag essentials? What kinds of things do you do or bring with you to help get you through the week?
