Work Hard & Make It Happen | Inside: Work Bag

A bag. Something I carry with me, everywhere I go. I don’t know why, but when I don’t have a bag with me, I feel kind of weird. For work I have to travel to Haarlem and for that of course I have to take a bag with me. This bag is filled with items that are essential for me to use at work. I thought it would be fun to show what I take with me, since I really like what’s in my bag videos or reading blogs about it. Hopefully you like this post as well!

LEATHER TOTE BAG: Solitude is Bliss | LIGHT GREY WALLET: Ted Baker

Whenever I have to work, I tend to take my Herschel back pack or this black leather tote bag. This black leather tote bag looks a little more professional because of the minimalistic look. It’s a very sturdy bag, which is a most because I have to take a lot of stuff with me to work haha.. The size is perfect because I can fit my MacBook Pro in it. Most of the time I just throw everything in when I am in a hurry. But when I want to be a bit more organized, I use my Herschel back pack because of the different compartments.

Some of the things that I always carry with me in my work bag are my keys, wallet and phone. These are some standard things I always need and have to bring with me. When I am on the go, of course I listen to music. That’s why my EarPods are a must as well. I would be so bored on the way to work if I didn’t have them with me.

IPHONE CASE: Fabienne Chapot

Like I said, I have to take my MacBook Pro with me to work. With that I take a laptop elevator (like this one), my keyboard and trackpad or mouse. I find that these items make it easier for me to work at a desk for a full day. Otherwise my neck and hand start hurting. If you get the same thing, I would recommend getting a laptop elevator as well because this works so well. Oh, and it looks very professional as well.

I’m very into technology and using apps. But when it comes to work, I just love to write down what I have to do. I think that gives me a better overview of what I have to do that specific day. For that I use a notebook and pen. Can we just talk about how cute this red velvet notebook is? Why would you not want to use this, am I right!


Staying hydrated is very important. Since I find it hard to remind myself to drink water, I take my own water bottle with me to work. At work the lunch is always taken care off, which is really nice. I do take a couple of snacks with me. A couple of years ago, I was stuck in a train on my way home without any water or something to eat. I definitely learned from that and since then I always take a snack of some kind with me.

Lastly, I have a small etui in my work bag. This is filled with random stuff, like paracetamol, hair elastics, makeup items and my beloved Rosebud Salve. You never know when any of these things can come in handy so I always make sure to have them with me.


These are the things I carry with me in my work bag at the moment! Of course it can differ a little everyday, because sometimes I just trow stuff in there and later take them out again. It can be a complete chaos in my bag because of the all the chargers I have to take with me haha. Does anyone recognize this problem as well? I would love to know: What’s in your work bag? What’s one thing you can’t go without on a work day?

    Ik ben dol op de tassen van Ted Baker. Hier geen werk tas,want ik werk thuis, maar in mijn tas zit altijd wel mijn portemonnee, telefoon, agenda ( ja erg ouderwets :)) sleutels, dopper fles, lippenstift en pleisters ( kinderen aanwezig). Ik vind jouw telefooncase trouwens erg gaaf!

    Ik werk vanuit huis en heb daardoor geen work bag. Wel een gewone tas, waarin van alles rondslingert.
