My Flight Attendant Purse

When I posted about the types of bags I recommend using, people started asking what I stash in my own travel bags. Here's a snapshot of what I keep in my purse while traveling. These are my go to items whether I'm on the road for work, heading home to Vermont, or non revving to somewhere else entirely.

The bag I'm using right now is an old favorite of mine, a Kate Spade tote I've had for about six years. It's actually a diaper bag, and I absolutely love it. It has a million pockets to keep everything organized, it's simple, and it's a real workhorse of a tote bag. Here's the closest current equivalent I could find.

The current contents of my purse.
1. My crisis kit (see below).
2. LL Bean Town and Field Clutch. I love that this comes with a detachable wristlet strap so I can carry it alone.
3. Moleskine Notebook.
4. Graphic Image Planner. I am obsessed with this. It has loads of useful charts, tips, and maps in the back along with my favorite feature- a list of memorable restaurants and hotels. Plus, you can get it monogrammed.
5. iPad Mini with Cath Kidson cover.
6. GlassU Sunglasses (c/o). I'm in love with these foldable, wearable, packable, delightful sunnies.
7. Tissues.
8. Cereal bar.
9. Dr. Bronner's Hand sanitizer
10. Narciso Rodriguez For Her Rollerball
11. Trader Joe's Lavender hand lotion in a Go-Gear squeeze tube.
12. Bite Beauty: Matte Crème Lip Crayon, High Pigment Pencil, and Luminous Crème Lipstick.
13. Warheads candies my boyfriend gave me because he knows they're my favorite.
14. Pens- at least one of which is a Sharpie.
15. Headphones.
16. My Crew ID
17. Herban Essentials Cleansing Towelettes.
18. Orbit Gum. Fun fact: the original Orbit Gum girl was Miss Vermont 1995. Look it up.
19. Emergen C Drink mix.
20. Peppermint Tea bags
21. Josie Maran Lip Stain
22. Badger Herbal Lip Balm
23. Car keys with my Smathers and Branson key fob.

The current contents of my crisis bag.

1. My Crisis Bag is a cosmetics bag. Currently it's in this one that has been discontinued, but I also love these.
2. Hollywood Fashion Tape. Buy it now, thank me later. Don't bother with another brand. Just don't.
3. Downy Wrinkle Releaser. This is a gift from the laundry gods.
4. Sunscreen.
