What’s in the Bag? -San Diego

It has been absolutely beautiful out. 70-75 degree weather everyday, perfect for day trips -which I’ve been doing a lot of.

I thought it might be a bit fun to venture away from food today and try something new. So for my little day trips I’ll give you guys a peek into my bag.

What's in the bag? -A Caffeinated BrunetteI’ve been wanting to get down to San Diego since I got to LA and we found the perfect day to do it. I couldn’t wait to head down there and we were meeting a new friend, Gabe, from Strght. He makes these awesome hand etched skateboards and was kind enough to show us around.

I usually try to pack light but I like taking my iPad around just in case I quickly need something besides my phone. I also have been trying to do a bit more reading so if anyone has any suggestions on some of your favorite books I’d love to hear them. Besides the iPad, almost everything is an essential that I take with me on a daily basis.

What's in the bag? -A Caffeinated BrunetteA few weeks ago I ordered a bag from Timbuk2. I was so excited for it to come. They’re made right in San Francisco and I am so happy with it. (They are also customizable.) The bag is waterproof on the inside, great for bringing around every day or on little trips. It showed its stuff the other night when there was a group of men behind us at dinner doing sake shots. The shots pooled all over the floor. My new bag unfortunately got the short end of it but was perfectly fine with a little wipe off and drying.

Papyrus Journal: I always take around a journal to remember specific restaurants, recommendations I receive and blog posts I think up along the way. Although it was a bit more expensive than a regular notebook (which it’s on sale now!), I love my papyrus journal. It’s so pretty it makes me want to write in it.

Grado Headphones: The family of Grado headphones are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and they make amazing headphones. (Check out their wooden ones, they’re awesome) They also make their headphones right out of Brooklyn, NY. Couldn’t get any better than that right? The sound quality on their in ears is phenomenal. I take my Grados everywhere I go. They’re perfect on my walks around town or sitting in the coffee shop (or you can use them for a run, if you like doing that kind of thing).
