Fire Alarm – What I Grabbed

It is a very long story about how I ended up with all my stuff in a hotel in the first place but this is for another post. If you’re following me on instagram, you might already know.
Since I caught a cold a few days ago, I am in the hotel all day and not in the office. That is why I was here when the fire alarm started this morning in the first place. Wish I wasn’t.
And how stupid that might sound, before leaving my room I just grabbed whatever I thought of first. Now some hours later (and thank god there was no fire at all) my choices kind of made me laugh.
This is why I am sharing that photo above with you all and why I will tell you what went down in my mind.

My Outfit

So one of the funniest things with that story is my outfit. Yeah really. Sick in bed, I was wearing pajamas of course and some thick and warm socks. Totally ugly, but comfy. My hair was knotted up and I wore a hand band with a bow since my moisturizing mask was still soaking in. Yay. When the alarm started and I realized I seriously had to leave, I panically grabbed a jacket and a scarf and threw on the most summer like sneakers I could find. Yep. It’s October, 8 degrees and the sky is as grey as can be. And I threw on pink, light sneakers over that really thick socks. I just totally rock panic styling, don’t you think?

What I grabbed

Okay now about what went down in my brain after the seconds I chose my perfect fire alarm outfit. I immediately grabbed my biggest Neverfull (the MM size) and some of the things like the Pochette, Keys, Wallet and stuff were already in it. The Frog is basically the first thing I grabbed in my emotional downwards spiral. No, I am not embarrassed because that frog is my emotional everything since the day I was born. Then I went on to the desk to grab what was on there. The bear is one of my lucky charms, he basically wrote every exam with me when I did my master degree and the purse with my fountain pens is also very important to me. Why did I grab my glasses when I actually need them 10% of the time? Because I historically thought: “They’re YSL and the case is Chanel!!!!”. I have no regrets. Okay that Benefit Bag. It contains all of the lipsticks I have with me because I had no place to store them and also a new mascara, eyeliner and some perfume samples. I had no makeup on in that moment so of course I had to grab all that. Afterwards I immediately grabbed my MAC foundation because… wtf of course you need make-up when you’re outside in pajamas! Let me tell you that I searched for the sponge. Seriously. I was looking for the sponge because how else would I apply that damn foundation!? Also on the desk was my Dior perfume and my Louis Vuitton Agendas. I just packed them, because why not. I was already out of my mind, so hey.

The aftermath

I am very very glad that in the end nothing really happened. I still don’t know if it only was a drill or what happened, but okay. I just find it very ironic what I grabbed. If I would have lost everything and was left with the things that I had on me, I would basically be very screwed. No clothes, no serious shoes. At least I could have bathed in Dior. I didn’t even had a bra on, which I realized when I came back to the room. Classy. I am curious what they would say in the office about a total pajamas look and full make-up on while wearing pink sneakers with my Neverfull.
