Five Day Work Trip - What's In My Travel Bag?

Hello all!! I'm back yet AGAIN with another whats in my bag type post.

This time, I'm traveling to a hot, humid, and muggy part of Ontario. Where I'll be for 5 days for training. And It's SO humid I'll have to shower every night, and wash my hair at least once from sweat (Gross? I don't care, Women sweat!!!) So I wanted to show you all what is in my "bare necessities" bag!

I'm ALSO bringing my tried and true long lasting makeup! I'll be in training/group from 6am to 8pm every day. So I need my makeup to last until I take it off!
