Office Essentials: The Desk Tour

When I started at my job, I loved how every desk was different and expressed a bit of the owners personality. I knew I wanted to make my desk a little more me and it is still a work in progress - so bear with me. I thought I'd share my desk essentials and what I've added to my desk to make it feel a little more 'me'!

My little cactus plant was actually a gift from my husband when we went on our first proper date! He bought me 4 little cacti but I decided one was enough to accompany me at my desk. It's a nice little reminder and adds a bit of greenery - plus everyone always comes around and notices the little guy and always ask whether he is real (he is!).

The beautiful marble base lamp was actually donated to me as our office has a 'thing' that everyone has their own little lamp on their desk. I quite like the aesthetic of this one - it's something I'd like in my future home someday.

My little pen pot was a personalised Nutella jar that my sister and brother-in-law bought me many many years ago. I couldn't bare to part with it so I cleaned the tub out and it has made its way from my desk at home to my desk at work.

The contents of my drawers tend to change but there are a few must-haves that remain there all of the time...

Hand cream is a must - I really like this body butter from The Body Shop. It came in a nifty little size so I thought it was perfect for my work drawer. Lip balm is obviously another staple. The current one of choice is another Body Shop buy, the Hemp Heavy Duty Lip Balm.

When I really want to concentrate or am not feeling the office music of choice (so sorry if my colleagues are reading this), I pop in my headphones which are by a brand called Urbanears.

Other bits and bobs in my drawers: notepads, diaries, post it notes, a box of dates (I love snacking on these), some chocolate (the unhealthy snack of choice) and hair bobbles.

What are your desk essentials?

    Your cacti is so cute, like how petite he is. I've been thinking of getting one for my office desk.
