Hi everyone! This weekend, I’m in LA for the PKD Walk but I have other activities planned out such as hiking, kayaking, shopping, and just hanging out. I checked the weather and it’s supposed to be really hot. Like 90+ degrees, which is absurd for this time of year. Anyway, I had to plan accordingly. Normally, I prefer to travel lightly and only pack the essentials whenever I go somewhere. But keep reading to see what’s in my weekend bag!
What’s in My Weekend Bag?

Bath and Skincare Essentials
First, I like to start off with the bath and skincare essentials. This includes my towel, shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste, contacts and solution, cleanser, toner, moisturizer, makeup remover… you get the point. My skincare products are most important because even if I go a few days without them, my skin will break out.
Next, I planned out some casual outfits for when I go out during the afternoon and evening. Since it still feels like summer, I thought it would be best to dress like it’s still summer. I packed some shorts, tank tops, sandals, and a floppy hat. I also threw in my kimono for when it gets cooler later in the night.
Another essential is makeup. Just like I do with my clothes, I only packed what I knew I’d use… which is still quite a lot of makeup!
Electronics and School Essentials
Lastly, I packed my electronics and school essentials just in case I find the time to study. Let’s be honest here, it’s probably not gonna happen but I have multiple presentations and exams this week. The studying never ends and I have to make the time for it.
And just for fun, I’m also showing you what I carry in my little brown backpack. It’s what I consider essential for when I’m walking around, doing tourist things. Of course, my wallet is the most important. I always have to wear my watch so I don’t have to rely on my phone for the time. I also packed my selfie stick for cool photo ops, face mist for when I get hot and sweaty, and my new sunnies to look good while protecting my eyes.
