I thought I would do a post about my desk essentials seeing as (some of you may have seen this news on Twitter) I am starting a new job in September! Wooooop!
I firmly believe that seeing as you spend the majority of your waking hours sat at your desk at the office, you should make it as nicer place as possible. I love making myself at home and having nice stationary and bits and bobs around me.
I always ensure I have a variety of stationery to make new project planning feel all profesh and less daunting! There is nothing like using a new notepad for the first time!
I like to personalise my space with coasters, trinkets and pictures to help me keep grounded if I start to feel stressed. I love my Instagram Coasters from PaperHappy via NotOnTheHighStreet.com, and I love the Eiffel Tower Ring Dish from ASOS (as pictured above). Knock Knock Stuff (you can buy it off Amazon) is brilliant for quirky stationery bits that have a bit of personality.
It's worth keeping nail polish remover, hand sanitiser, a nail file and some hand cream in or on your desk so you aren't left with a nail emergency all day! I have Laura Mercier Hand Cream with the Almond Coconut Scent on my desk and every time I put it on I get compliments. Plus if someone has broken office etiquette and had a slightly fragrant lunch that is lingering in the office I like to put it on so that my immediate personal space smells nice! At £13 it isn't cheap but it is worth every penny! I got mine for my birthday, use it most days and I still have it now at the end of July..
What do you like to keep on your desk?
