What's in my bag: Let's take a look!

While most people complain of messy closets, no place on the rack for their shoes and a hand bag full of junk; that is the one time I sit back and gaze in amazement because well, I'm sort of a neat freak. I like my things tidy and it takes a hell of a lot of energy and time to keep it that way but, who doesn't like an organized draw, neatly cleaned and arranged shoes *and exactly what you are searching for, when you put your hand in the alternate universe i.e. your bag!* I've been meaning to do this for ages so let's get down to the good stuff:

What's in my bag?

I'm sort-of a bag switcher because I like matching the bag to my outfit; so sneakers go with my knapsack, ballets go with a tote etc. The annoying part is I have to keep transferring my stuff to different bags because of this 'matchy-matchy' habit of mine.
On this particular day, I was carrying  the above leather tote with gold accents because I was in formal trousers for a presentation. 

1) The project folder - Because I need to keep all my assignments and papers in one place, 2) Chewing Gum and Foldable sunnies *which are super convenient btw! - Because you never know when a day can get too hot. 3) Cell Phone and Cell Pouch *My rainy day precaution* - Because obviously, that phone is like my go-to item.

4) Notebook - Because I need to take notes in class, 5) Violet Purse and 'Elmo' change purse *a treasured childhood gift of mine!* - Because cash and 'chillar' change needs to separated so I can pay my bus tickets more easily. 6) Polka dot carry-all - Because it looks mysteriously small for the amount of items it can hold *and it has polka-dots*

Inside the Polka dot carry-all: 7) Wet-wipes, Mini Compact and Tissues - Because of oily skin issues and the humidity of Mumbai, my lovelies. 8) Emergency goodies like meds and balm and my Rosary - Because these are a constant in every bag that I switch. 9) Hand Sanitizer and Make-Up mirror - Because you need to check up on yourself if you're going somewhere and lastly, 10) Mini Comb, Lip Balm and Kohl with smudger - Because of probable blog shoot emergencies and a having a high maintenance fringe.

PS: If you want any details about any of the products/would like a review; do mention it in the comments!
So what do you think of the goodies inside my bag? Anything else you think I should have on me? 

So guys, the month of October is here. Also, the month jam-packed with projects and two sets of final exams for me. It is going to be a busy, achingly tough month for me so I'm going to be taking the month off the blog to concentrate on all of that. I will post whenever I can but I cannot be certain of anything till November. Of course, I'll be around on Facebook, Twitter and via Email *If you haven't joined me yet, click the buttons on the left side of the page* so any chit-chat, get in touch with me there!

Have a great month ahead dolls, stock up on the fall trends and miss me a little bit! 
See you lovelies at the soonest I can!
