Everybody has their never leave home without items: phone, credit card, maybe some chapstick. I never leave home without my Longchamp purse and the items it contains. What are those items? Read-on and find out.
Lilly Pulitzer Planner
I know I’ve ranted about how great this planner is in the past (like here, here, and here), but it’s one of my never leave home without items. Check out those other posts to see why I love it and how you can use it to make your life more organized.
Especially in the winter, for me, this is an essential. I prefer to collect the free lotion you get at hotels and use that, but if you have any life-changing lotion recs, let me know in the comments!
As a slight germiphobe, I never leave home without some hand sanitizer. I don’t think I really need to explain this one more.
Chapstick and Lip Stain
I hate having chapped lips so I keep the EOS chapstick that I talked about here in my purse at all times. I also keep the loreal lip stain that I talked about here in my purse for days when I’m wearing that stain.
Right now I have the book How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
I know this sounds like a weird choice for reading material, but it was suggested that I read it before a scholarship competition that I participated in, so I started reading it. Unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to finish it before the competition, but I definitely will finish it soon for two reasons.
The first reason is that it’s actually really helpful and has taught me a lot about leadership and just everyday interactions with people. The second reason is because next year I will be living in a learning community at Syracuse University and this book is required to be in that learning community.
If you want to know more about any of this, comment below and let me know!
I have a food allergy so I never leave home without my Epipen and some Benadryl. Luckily the allergy isn’t bad enough that I’ve ever had to use the Epipen; Benadryl does the trick. I keep both just in case.
This one is kind of a no brainer. Right now, I’m using this wallet from Charming Charlie’s which I’m really happy with.
This is another no brainer, but you might not think of this one. You never know when you might need a pen, so I always keep one in my purse. It doesn’t have to be a good pen, just something that writes.
I take my Longchamp to school with me and pretty much everywhere else, so earbuds are essential. Mine aren’t good earbuds, they’re just cheap ones that came with my phone, but you never know when you might need to drown out your surroundings or listen to a video or song.
