I am the kind of girl who’s always fashionably late. You know that friend that you’ll invite to a dinner at 7 PM when it actually starts at 7:30? Yep, that’s me. There are two exceptions to this rule, however. Yoga classes, where I like to have plenty of time to pick my spot in yoga class (up front) and get centered before beginning sun salutations, and the airport. I hate to feel rushed while traveling, so I’m often at my gate long before anyone else. Since this means I have plenty of time to sit around, I like to make sure my carry on bag is packed with plenty of things to get me through a long wait.
On my quick trip to Charleston last week, here’s what I brought along. In my C.Wonder Nylon Easy Tote, I packed Mindy Kaling’s book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? You need to read this book. I was laughing out loud at 6 AM surely ticking off everyone around me. I always bring along my trusty notebook because you never know when a blogging idea may hit or a to do list may need to be written. I have such a sweet tooth so a chocolate treat is always a must have and these new HELLO chocolates from Lindt are amazing. Seriously, you need to try the salted caramel and the caramel brownie. And, since you never know who you may run into, a fun hair tie, a mini hairspray, lip balm, cheek stain, and an invigorating perfume are good to have on hand.
It’s also worth noting, the mini Easy Tote is my absolute favorite tote bag this season because it actually isn’t mini at all. It easily holds all of the favorites I have here along with my wallet, phone charger, and a water bottle. It comes in several colors including navy, tan, and black, but I just love this cherry red. While as an auburn headed gal, I can’t wear red close to my face, I love it for a pop of color throughout fall and winter.
