What’s in my work bag (minimal)

I bought a cute black Kate Hill (Danika) backpack to use as a more formal diaper bag for nicer occasions. I also use it once in while as a work bag for my part time position as a Marketing Assistant. The backpack is very spacious inside, opens wide, has quilted stitching all over the front, and has gold hardware.

The contents of my work bag are:

  • Mimco keyring card wallet
  • mini essentials purse
  • car & house keys
  • earphones
  • usb
  • snack
  • lunch (usually in a glass container)
  • drink bottle (with water or juice)
  • phone (I use a notes/checklist app that automatically syncs to my email account – no need to hoard old planners or feel guilty about throwing them out)

How adorable is this teddy keyring?Reminds me of my baby boy!

What’s in my Mimco keyring card wallet

I’ve never bought anything from Mimco before but I came across their keyring card wallet online when I was looking for a minimalistic flat wallet to hold some cash and my 3 essential cards (license, Medicare card, and bank card). The wallet was on sale at David Jones for $40 and it was in my favourite colour leather with gold hardware. I also wanted an attached keyring so this wallet is perfect!

What’s in my mini essentials purse kit

My most recent Etsy purchase was a navy leather kiss lock coin purse from Pulpo Creations. I was searching for a beautiful looking small pouch to store my minimal handbag essentials and it needed to have a wide opening so I can find all the items easily. The dimensions of the coin purse is around 13cm in length by 7cm in height and it fits all my items perfectly.

At the moment the coin purse holds these items:

  • tiny mirror
  • travel folding scissors
  • small pen
  • tweezers
  • travel nail clippers
  • small zip lock bag (with bandaid, bobby pins, safety pins & hair ties)
  • eyebrow pencil
  • eye shadow pen
  • travel containers of tinted moisturiser & vaseline
  • lipstick

Many of the items are travel size, making it more cuter to use and easier to carry. The purse is so small that I can take it anywhere I go even if I use a small crossbody purse. Now I don’t have to leave anything behind!
