- Wallet / Money
Let's face it, we can't get anywhere without it especially when you are about to deal with transportation fees, food and water. Include here your ID's or cards that you think you may need.
A way to stay in contact with the people you are about to meet or you are leaving behind and for searching information on where you are about to go.
- Extra shirt
You'll never really know how much you'll need one until you actually need it. Just bring a lightweight and neutral colored one in case of emergency or if you just need a change of clothes.
The weekend is the best time to catch up on some reading, no distractions and you won't have to worry when you get too invested on the story.
- Journal / notebook
It's not everyday you get to spend your time like this so, when you take a break, you can write down your thoughts and your experiences no matter how good or bad because it's a nice remembrance of the moment.
This is a must have for me since I live in a place where we have humid weather. The sun is always shining (except for rainy days of course) and a good pair is a way of protecting your ways from too much sun. And it comes in handy when you are having one of those weekends where you don't want to put makeup or anything on since you look like you've tried even if you didn't.
- Necessities (Makeup, Hand sanitizer, alcohol, deodorant)
Basically everything you think you may need when you are out and about, staying somewhere else or your friend's house. Packing up everything saves you the time and the money instead of heading out to buy things that you'll probably only use for a day or two.
- Weekend Bag
A good spacious bag is the way to go if you plan to bring so much things without the hassle. It's capable of carrying everything you'll need and would still match your outfit. Mine is the Versatile weekender black bag and I got it from oh my bag ph. It's worth PHP 599 and if you guys aren't familiar with oh my bag ph, they sell bag care products like bag and shoe stuffers (depending on which size of bag you have), dust bags, bag shapers, bag raincoats, base shapers and handle wraps. So bag lovers out there, do check them out to prolong the life of your bags in an inexpensive way. Like for real, I am totally eyeing their bag raincoats at the moment.
