What’s in My Bag: Packing for Influence Conference

Today I’m putting a fun spin on the typical ‘what’s in my bag’ post by sharing the contents of my carry-on for Thursday. With a few exciting trips coming up this fall, I recently invested in a new weekender bag from Lo & Sons. I am excited to fill it up with all these goodies and more in packing for Influence Conference this week. What's in My Bag - Kyla Mary - Influence Conference

What’s in My Bag:

notepad and pens to jot thoughts and ideas

My Starbucks card for grabbing caffeine at the airport – I might even treat myself to my first PSL of 2015

My phone, outfitted with the conference schedule lock screens (available for download here)

A portable phone charger – I recently bought this gold one from Amazon

Snacks for an afternoon pick-me-up – These Larabars are my favorite

My water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the weekend

My favorite lip product – I have been using this product faithfully for at least two years

Are there any must-haves that you like to pack in your carry-on? Share your favorites in the comments!
