We totally understand if you have a different bag for every kind of situation. There's one bag you use for school, another for when you've got a trip to the mall planned after dismissal, and probably another one when you're going out with your barkada for the weekend. We can't just give you one option when you're figuring out one day, "What's in my bag?" We have to have choices, right? So we put together 6 different bag sitches for every occasion (okay, maybe not every, but you get what we mean). 

 1  School day, all day, every day

Make sure you've got the Candy School Diary for jotting down important reminders and appointments throughout the school year. Not starting school till August? No worries, this version doesn't have set dates, so you can start whenever! You can even buy more than one, so you can use it again next year! P.S. Looking for a versatile bucket bag to tote around school? We've gone ahead and went shopipng for you!


 2  Crafters gonna craft, craft, craft

Make a fun DIY tote by stamping on a blank one! To make sure the design stays, heat-press before throwing in the wash. Want to decorate your notebooks—and oh just about anything? Grab a copy (or two) of the 1,001 Awesome Stickers book with super cute decals designed by some of your favorite illustrators!

 3  Write it down

Is your nose always buried in a book? Are you constantly snapping away photos to preserve memories? Then, you're also probably the type to write down your thoughts once in a while. The #BeTheBestYouPlanner journal (a super cool partnership between Break My Style blogger Laureen Uy and Stradmore) is a nifty notebook to stash inside your bag. Don't forget a cute pen to go with it!

 4  Fangirls are so odd, they can't even!

A fangirl always has a notebook, a camera, and some emergency Sharpie markers in her tote (with her idol plastered in front, of course) in case of autograph opportunities. A spritz of her fave scent (One Direction's You & I, in this case) can make the meeting even sweeter.


 5  A change of clothes

Heading to the mall with your besties straight from CAT or NSTP? Don't forget to pack an extra tee and your fave pair of foldable flats. A BB cream and a swipe of lippie is all you need to look fresh for the day ahead!

 6  Afternoon swim

Pair your swimsuit and flip-flops with a tube of sunscreen if you're heading to the community pool in your village. A wide-toothed comb will help you deal with your tangled locks once you come out of the water.
