Ditto on holding out for barkskin as a ki power. You should be able to get it at your 4th level of monk, but of course it won't scale as well if you multiclass.
Surely, after the 3 years of training that a Pathfinder goes through, you'd have a passing familiarity with basic buff spells. I don't see that as a role-playing issue. You're a professional adventurer, not some wide-eyed farm boy fresh out of the countryside.
Spells with a range of personal, such as true strike, cannot be made into potions. That's part of the Core rules, not a PFS-specific rule, but it is hidden and many people miss it. So mage armor is good (worth having as a back-up if nobody can use a wand on you), but you'll need UMD if you want a shield.
