5 Things I Wish I Had in My Bag When I Needed It

I don’t know about you but I’m the type of woman who always has to have her bag with her because I cannot function without my bag. Before I go out the door, I need to make sure that I have everything that I might possibly need throughout the day and I’ve gone many incidents where I just wished I had that thing in my bag and I’ve also come to the point where I purchased it immediately because I desperately needed it. That bad, huh?

Phone charger and USB cable

I have been a long time Android user and one thing about using Android is I’ve never needed to bring any powerbanks or charger just because my phone battery can last all day long but I’ve been getting into using Instagram Stories and I found myself having to charge my phone every 5 hours because it drained my battery like crazy. One time I purchased a new cable at campus because my phone died and the other time, I purchased a new USB charger because my friend and I were stuck in KL with no battery on our phones so we had to buy a USB charger. Since then, I’ve been bringing my charger and cable everywhere I go. No more dead phone for me!


If you think lipstick isn’t important, get outta here. Whenever I have a one-hour class, I didn’t think to bring my lipstick of the day just because meh I’ll only be at campus for like an hour and then I’ll go home but my friends usually ask me out after class and then I don’t have any lipstick to touch up and it drives me a little bit crazy when I can’t touch up on my lipstick so I’ll be sure to have one lipstick in my bag doesn’t matter what lipstick I’m wearing that day. I usually have MAC Velvet Teddy in my bag but right now, my current favourite is MAC Faux (Satin). Love it!

Water bottle

Two advices that I would give to people: 1. always moisturise, and 2. always stay hydrated. Staying hydrated all day is very self-explanatory. I usually just bring my own wherever I go and make sure that I refill my bottle for the next day. I’m not keen on buying mineral water every single day just because it’s not cost-effective. However, if you do go to Aeon Food Market, I really recommend the 6-pack for 3 ringgit ones as those are very cheap and what’s 3 ringgit a week, eh?


I like smelling good all day long so I’ve gotten into the habit of bringing perfume wherever I go. Foul body odour is just a no-no for me so I like knowing that I have something in my bag that can help me in that department. I don’t have body odour to begin with but it’s not necessarily a bad thing to freshen up a little bit in the middle of the day. After all, you don’t want your friends to be uncomfortable around you, right?

Contact lens solution + case

I rely heavily on contact lens because I’m basically blind without them but there are times when I have impromptu sleepover at a friend’s house and I have to borrow their lens case because I don’t have mine with me. Shoooooot. After that, I always make sure that I have a lens case with fresh solution in it so I can take off my lenses because you know wearing lenses for more than 12 hours is bad for your eyes (but I do it anyway!)

So what are the 5 things you wish you had in your bag when you needed it?

    Powerbank , usb and perfume is all I need.. I don’t mind to bring lipstick along, simply because if I’m going out right after class, it’s either I wear my liquid matte lipstick or just go to watson/guardian and wear the tester.. :3

    • hahahaha going to watson/guardian for the tester is a great idea! x

  • nadiah izzaty

    I have all items that in the list too~ hihi . I will be dead if my hp our of batt. Hahaha. Plus , using iPhone haih~ cepat betul batt habis.

    Other than 5 items listed above , in my bag usually have a book , handkerchief because I easily sweat and atleast an eclipse candy <3

    • kan iphone cepat habis batt? kawan kawan yang pakai iphone semua ada powerbank x

  • Phone charger + contact lens solution tu. Hahaha tambah2 kalau masuk mall lama2 tengok wayang ke, japgi mata kering mula gelabah cari kedai spek, aiyaa…tapi tak pernah insaf lagi nak bawa dalam handbag, serabut pula rasa.

    • betul tu kalau tengok wayang and lens kering, spoil mood tau xx

  • These are extremely relatable! I always make sure I have lipstick and perfume with me. If I know I’m going to be out for a while, a charger is a must! Also, hand cream. My hands get pretty dry, so I always make sure I have some handy 🙂

    • i need a hand cream too! i love the feeling of moisturised hands when i’m going out. it’s weird but it is what it is haha x

  • Hahaha I love this post! Totally going to steal this idea and do a post of my own. Totally agree on the charger!!

  • I just really hope my bag full of foods

    • aaahhhh i love having food in my bag!

  • I need these 5 things to in my beg, plus a compact powder

    • i rarely touch up my makeup but if i do, it’s always the innisfree no sebum mineral powder x

  • Yiotou_La

    I always carry 3-4 lipsticks in my bag so I won’t have a problem with that, but there are some days when I need a body mist to freshen a little during the day, especially now that the weather is getting warmer.

    all that thing was important actually. sometime my friend said ” weh berat gila handbag kau” i dont know wat i had bring but all thing is important. cant leave them at home.

    • so true! who knows we might need them when we’re out and about xx

  • Siqah Hussin

    Phone charger and usb cable adalah benda paling penting Siqah kena pastikan bawa bersama kalau keluar. I don’t want my phone dead! *penting gila phone kan*. Hii.

    Lipstick, compact powder pun sama juga. Siqah jarang bawa water bottle ke mana pergi. Biasa beli je air mineral. Pemalas nanye tak nak beg berat 😀

    Dulu masa belajar, Siqah pun pakai contact lens more than 12 hours everyday, Until kena bahas dengan kakak senior dan jadi seram lepas dengar cerita dia, terus pakai spec je. Dan until now, Siqah lagi selesa pakai spec. Selamat dah pakai spec pergi SUnway Lagoon dan lari 10 KM last 2 weeks 😀

    • erin selalu pakai lens sampai 20 jam :(((( waaaa bahaya ni!

  • I always have my portable charger on me! It’s so good as me and a friend can charge our phones at the same time 🙂 staying hydrated is also so important to me too
