A Weekend in a Backpack

This may just be my proudest life achievement. All my things for two nights away in one backpack. I’ll pause for you to applaud me. 
The backpack in question is a bargain Amazon find that I love because it’s quite petite! I did a full post on it here if you want to see a little more of it. 
I have this handy little wallet from Skagen which houses my cards & phone, so I slipped that and my headphones into the front pouch so they’re easy to grab. My phone case is Kate Spade, isn’t it gorgeous? 
I managed to strip my clothing down to the bear necessities (see what I did there?), I wore a pair of jeans, jacket & my sunglasses on the day I travelled down, so I packed underwear into a little Cos jewelry bag, two tshirts and a necklace to jazz things up. The necklace is new from Oliver Bonas in stores soon, and I’m obsessed with it! 
I popped a few essentials into an Oliver Bonas Wash Bag, these are such a handy size! I put in my phone charger, moisturiser, hand sanitizer, deodorant & face wipes. I have things like face wash & hair stuff at home so these were just the bits I needed! 
Makeup-wise I stripped things back to reliable essentials, my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, Estée Lauder Brush On Glow BB Highlight, MAC X Ellie Goulding I’ll Hold My Breath for base. Eyes kept simple, a mini Gimme Brow, MAC Painterly Paint Pot, an Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Supply & NARS Audacious Mascara, and Chanel’s Adrienne Lipstick. All of this fits easily into my Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Bag with plenty of room to spare! 
I’m headed back home for work so I took my Erin Condren Life Planner & Notebook home, which took up a fair bulk of space in the bottom of my bag. I packed my iPad Pro, Canon 550d, Canon G7X, mini Joby GorrillaPod & some spare batteries & memory cards. These things makeup up my travelling work kit and has everything I need! 
And that’s it! Are you proud of me? I’m proud of me!
