Today I’m sharing a few things that I try to never leave the house without. They are the kind of things that I don’t automatically think to keep in my purse, but when I don’t have them I wish I did.
First, though, lets talk about this backpack. My friend gave it to me for my birthday and I’m a little obsessed. Now lets get into the list.
One: A healthy and tasty snack
On busy days I often end up rushing out the door without eating breakfast or finding myself without enough time between classes to get some lunch. On those days, a good snack is a lifesaver. I love these lemon Larabars and I’m excited to try this maple almond butter from Justin’s, I think it would be great with and apple.
Two: My water bottle
I am literally only parted from my water bottle when I have to put it in the dishwasher. I start feeling really crummy when I don’t drink enough water so I drink a lot. I love to add some fresh berries, or cucumbers to liven up the taste, but I’m a little bit spoiled because all of my water comes from the Rocky Mountains so it tastes amazing all on its own.
Three: A book, or my phone with a book downloaded
Reading is important to me but I find that I am just as vulnerable to getting sucked into social media or games on my phone so I keep like to keep a book on hand at all times so that when I find myself with a few spare minutes I can read instead of scrolling through Instagram. Right now I’m reading Emma by Jane Austen and Mansfield Park, also by Jane Austen on my kindle app on my phone.
