What's In My Hospital Bag

Tuesday 15 September 2015

By the time you're reading this i will already be in hospital so enjoy!
This is just another take on the "What's In My Bag' posts. I don't know if any of you will find this interesting or not, but i thought it'd be a nice post. 
I'm going into hospital for a 3 week rehabilitation stay due to my Ehlers Danlos. (you can find out more about Ehlers Danlos HERE). I'm nervous, but i'm also really looking forward to it because i'm really hoping it helps, because this whole being in pain malarky is not doing me any good! This isn't going to show all my clothes, wash bag etc, but this is the stuff that'll be next to bed and i'll be going in and out of a lot. So here's my What's In My Hospital Bag post :)

(Backpack: Primark)
This is going to be my bag for when i'm in hospital for all the bits & pieces that i want to keep near to me. This backpack is from Primark and i think it was £10. I actually really like this bag and it's a great size too! This bag is all black with gold hardware. There is a drawstring to pull the bag closed tightly and then the flap comes over and attaches to the rest of the bag by a popper. The two pockets you can see also have the same thing. I love the detailing on this bag. I don't really know how to describe it but it's kind of just like swirls. I think considering this bag was only a tenner, it is fantastic!

(Glasses: FCUK. The Game by Tom Wood Book: Sainsburys)
So as i'll be in hospital, there will be times when i won't be doing anything so i needed a good book to get stuck into. My mum gave me this book to read as she thought i would like it and after reading the back of it, i think i will. This book is about a hitman who ends up getting caught up with the CIA and then poses as a victim to identify the mans next mark which is a mission that takes him to Rome. In the end he has to make a choice, to do what's right, or to sacrifice the only thing he cares about, his life. That's more or less what the back says, so i hope you get kind of the jist of it. My mum bought it from Sainsburys so maybe try your local one if you're interested in buying it. I'm also taking my glasses to hospital, because i need them for reading.

(iPhone: AppleHeadphones: Apple. Charger: Tesco)
This ones a no brainer really, but of course i'm going to be taking my phone into hospital. I don't go anywhere without my phone, and i feel lost whenever i can't find it. With my phone, i'll obviously need my charger, especially with how rubbish iPhone batteries are! I'm going to take some headphones with me as well because usually just as i've got into bed i'll watch some YouTube videos so that i can sleep, and i don't want to disturb anyone so thought i should probably bring some along. My favourite YouTuber to watch at the moment is Gabby, also known as VelvetGh0st so i definitely recommend you go give her a watch!

(Simple Facial Wipes: BootsSimple Moisturiser: Boots. Tissues: Savers.)
I'm not going to be taking many skincare products into hospital. I'm only really just starting to get the hang of how to use the skincare items, what does what, etc. I thought it'd be good to take in some moisturiser though because i find that the air conditioning in hospitals really can dry your skin out. I'm going to be using the Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser which i hope lives up to it's name and will keep my face hydrated. I'm using this one because it's a smaller bottle than my Aveeno moisturiser which i use, and this one is also really good for sensitive skin which i have. As i won't be taking any skincare stuff i thought it best just to have some facial wipes just to refresh my face a bit, so the Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes are going to have to do. I used to use just baby wipes but i prefer these. I'm also going to be taking a pack of tissues with me because you never know when you're going to need a tissue. I had to buy these tissues because....MINIONS!

(Adult Colouring Book: WH Smith. Colouring Pencils: WH Smith.)
So these adult colouring books are all the rage at the moment so i thought i'd jump on the band wagon and get myself one. This one was £4.99 which i think is quite expensive so i hope i actually get a lot of use out of it. There are 64 designs in this book so i'm sure i'll find some nice ones to colour in and help me relax. For the bigger design i'll be using these colouring pencils. There are an 12 different coloured pencils which i think are more than enough. I'm looking forward to trying it out!

(Wreck This Journal: Waterstones. Rimmel X Kate Moss Nude Lipstick: Boots.)
My best friend recommended this book to me and i've actually wanted to try it out for ages. If you don't know what this is, it's a journal you basically wreck. You can go through it as quickly or as slowly as you want, but the whole point of it, is to completely wreck it. I can imagine it's actually going to be very therapeutic. I've had a flick through and it looks like it's going to be fun. Totally unrelated but also in this picture is this nude lipstick from Rimmel, i don't think i'm going to be taking any makeup into hospital, but i think a nude lip will be nice. I may change my mind and ask my mum to bring in some of my makeup but i think a nude lip will suffice to begin with. 

(Notepad: WH Smith. Pencil case: Tesco? Stabilo Fineliners: WH Smith.)
The reason there is a question mark next to where i bought this pencil case is because i can't remember exactly where it's from. I think it was from Tesco but i've had it for years so it could be wrong. This pencil case will be holding all my stationary stuff. Inside there is a rubber, sharpener, pen, pencil and these Stabilo Fineliners. I found these fineliners in my one of the drawers in my desk and was over the moon. To get a set they are nearly £20 in WH Smith! This is one of the big packs but i'm only showing you a few. Some of the pens in the pack were missing but that's fine. I'm taking a notepad because whenever i go away from home i always take one. This is incase i think of any blog ideas or have any thoughts i want to jot down or something like that. My best friend also recommended to me that everyday i should do a Peak and a Pit at the end of each day. So one negative thing and one good thing about the day which i'm hoping will be really helpful!

(Hoodie: Primark.)
Even though i probably didn't need a new one, i went and bought a hoodie. I reckon it'll get quite cold in the hospital so i'll be snuggling up in this. I got it in a size 20 as i wanted it to be really oversized and baggy so that i could get really cosy in it. It'll be perfect to wear if i'm feeling uncomfortable, cold, tired, etc. There are so many reasons why i bought it. I think it was about £7, but either way it's going to be under £10 as Primark are so reasonably priced.

(Dove Deodorant: Boots. Batiste Dry Shampoo. Boots. So...? Kiss me: Boots.)
These are just a few necessities that i'll be taking, for starters deodorant is a must. I use the Dove Invisible Dry Deodorant which is a roll on and it really does the job. It doesn't leave any marks on any clothes and i've used it for a couple of years now. For hair emergencies i will need dry shampoo. This is incase my hair decides to be greasy even though it was washed the day before. I'm taking this one because it's a lot more smaller than the normal size bottles. I wish they had a small bottle of the medium to dark brown hair shade because that would be a lot better. I love the So...? body sprays, this is one of my favourites and it's just a nice sweet scent but it's not overpowering. I'll be using a quick spritz of this before i start my day

After writing this post and looking at all the photos i have realised that i forgot to put my hairbrush in the bag. Such a rookie error. But this is just to let you all know that obviously i will be taking a hairbrush, probably my Lee Stafford one that i got from last years Bloggers Festival. Any other wash bits, such as toothbrush, shampoo etc will be in my other bag that has all my clothes.

Anyways, i hope you liked this post. Let me know if there is anything that you would take into hospital with you if you were going in that i haven't included!
