What’s in my University Bag?

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog!

I absolutely love reading ‘What’s in my Bag’ blog posts. I think they are really fun and fascinating posts! It may also have something to do with the fact I’m quite nosy! I just included what’s actually supposed to be in my bag, not the random bits you find in the bottom like bits of rubbish and loose chewing gum (let’s be real!). I thought it would be interesting to write my own post and share with you all what I take with me to university!

The Bag

I use my Fjallraven Kanken bag for university because it’s the perfect size to carry everything I need! I prefer to use a backpack, as handbags tend to give me a sore shoulder as it’s usually pretty heavy!

  • Phone – For obvious reasons, it’s pretty much glued to my hand.
  • Purse – I take my cute Cath Kidston purse to buy my coffee so I can get through the day!
  • Keys – I’ve got to get in and out of my flat somehow!
  • Lip balm – I never leave home without one or two or three…
  • Scrunchie – For when my hair gets on my nerves!
  • Student card – I use my card to get in and out of the university buildings.
  • Tissues and hand gel – Would I really be a student nurse if I didn’t take these everywhere?
  • Chewing gum and polos – I always like to have these to just freshen up a bit!
  • Headphones – I love taking headphones to uni because they really help me focus!

  • Shopping bag – I always like to have an extra bag just in case.
  • Plasters  – I always seem to get blisters so I always take these with me.
  • Glasses – I’d be lost without these!
  • Notepad – I like to make handwritten notes in lectures rather than typing them up.
  • Pencil case – I have my sweet pencil case from Wilko for making notes.
  • Ipad – I like to use this to get the PowerPoint up when the lecturer goes too fast!
  • Diary – I like to stay organised so I write down everything I need to do and when things are due!
  • Water bottle – Gotta stay hydrated!

(Pin me!!)

And as always, thanks for reading!

    Great post! It’s really fun seeing what Uni students carry around with them and also sort of makes me jealous because I’ve never and probably won’t go to Uni haha! You’ve definitely got all the necessities down and seem very organised 🙂 x
