So I didn’t know what to blog about so I sent out a request for blog topics on Instagram, one of my followers replied that I should write about the 10 things I can’t live without. Lo and behold here we are.

Today on the blog I'm sharing the 10 things I can't live without.

1. My Laptop

Let’s start this 10 things list with an obvious choice: my laptop. I remember hating the fact that my friends associated me with computers, probably because I knew it was true. Let me tell you I’m either blogging, working on school stuff or writing- I’m always on the computer. Only downfall? Everyone thinks you’re tech support.

2. Digital eye strain glasses

Since I am always on a device of some sort, these Phonetic Eyewear glasses (c/o) are a godsend. Not kidding. They reduce eye stain, headaches, back pain, and more. Read the full post here.

3. A sweater of some sort

I’m always cold so a sweater, shawl, big scarf, whatever is necessary for me. This my favorite ‘dressy’ sweater, this is my favorite jean jacket, this is my favorite athletic jacket and this is my favorite cardigan.

4. My S’Well

In case you didn’t know, a S’well can house a cold beverage for 24 hours and a hot one for 12 hours. So in the morning I use it for my coffee, then rinse it out and drink water from it the rest of the day, #LifeSaver

5. Portable Charger

At first I wanted a Mophie phone case charger, but I couldn’t justify buying that when the phones change practically every year. I use my portable charger for my phone, iPad and even my Fitbit.

6. Moisturizer

It may sound crazy, but my skin is SUPER dry. I can’t stand that tight feeling get on my face when I don’t wear moisturizer. This is what I use.

7. Lavender essential oil

I get HORRIBLE headaches and this oil works wonders for me. I just rub it on my temples and I’m gold. It’s also a great sedative!

8. Nail Cutter

Since I played violin for 8 years, I can’t stand long nails. That being said my nails grow amazingly long within a week so I have to cut them before they drive me crazy.

9. My family and friends

I know this is a give-in, but my family and friends are seriously everything to me. When I was in the hospital for months, they were there making me laugh, giving food (that I couldn’t eat yet- I’m still sore about those delicious smelling cookies someone brought that I could just smell -_-) and just being there.

10. Oreo

I’ll say this for like the thousandth time, my dog is my favorite. #SorryNotSorry.

  • aww love this and hmm some things i cant live w/o are my cell phone, family and twizzlers 😉

    • Omg I was just thinking about Twizzlers haha.

  • Aw thank you!

  • omg Alix- I also can’t live without my S’Well, moisturizer, and nail clippers! I played piano for many years growing up and I still always clip them to this day instead of filing them. Sounds like we have a lot in common haha great post

    • Lol- YES! Filing doesn’t get me anywhere haha.

  • Bronke Luysterman

    I need to look into those glasses, they seem like lifesafers! And does essential oil really work for headaches? because I’ve been stuggling to find something for my migraine for 10 years now (that makes me sound very old :/ haha)

    • Haha I feel ya there! I think lavender essential oil is THE BEST! Just rub a little on your temples. It’s also great for insomnia! I think peppermint essential oil works too. 🙂

  • great list, I need to check out those eye strain glasses. my husband has a pair and he swears by them!

  • Yep — I can’t live without a portable charger and my pup either!
    Oreo is so cute!

    family and friends are number 1! i can’t live without my portable charger either, it’s the best thing for us busy bees!

  • mckenna bleu

    Love that you put “a sweater” haha. I’m always cold so that would be one of mine as well.

    • Lol everyone thinks I’m crazy for wearing a light jacket in the summer.

  • Haha I love this! I always carry some kind of sweater around with me too!!

    • You’ll never find me without one haha.

  • I cannot live without lip balm! Whenever I don’t have some I feel like my lips are instantly chapped!

  • Robin @ And Then We Tried

    I’ve always wondered about eye strain glasses! Glad to have one positive review!

  • Portable chargers are the best things ever – can’t leave the house without one!

    • I get super anxious if my battery goes below 50% and I don’t have a charger lol.

  • Patricia Conte

    I’ve become someone that can’t live without my portable charger (and usually a sweater, too)! I don’t know how I survived on the edge of battery life without one! 😉

    • Haha I was seriously just thinking that!

  • Look at Oreo so adorable, I’m also always cold no matter what I try to do I keep on looking for something to keep me warm. Great list.

    Moisturiser has got to be one of the top things I cant live without especially since I have the worst dry skin that is married nicely with my eczema!

  • This is such a great list. I need my Lavender oil! It helps when I’m feeling anxious.
