I seem to spend a very large portion of my day at my desk staring aimlessly at my computer (out of the window if I’m completely honest). I thought you might like to see some of my desk essentials so rounded up all the items on my desk that I couldn’t live without day to day & took a photo or two of them.
This is a very refreshing face mist and I spritz it so often throughout the day. I love how it stops my skin from drying out and the rose scent is very uplifting and calming. A few spritz of this leaves my skin feeling soft, soothed and hydrated. I really enjoy having it on my desk & like I said I spray it so often.
Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets
I used these all the time last Summer but Kleenex discontinued them & I couldn’t find them anywhere, but I have since found a stash in my local Home Bargain & they’re selling the left over stock for 29p a pack. So you better believe I bought a huge supply. I like to have a pack of these with me just to dab on my T-zone so I don’t look like an oily mess as the day goes on. If you have a Home Bargain near you then get in there & buy a couple of packs. These are a god send for shine control.
Dried Fruit / Snacks
I like to snack on dried fruit or nuts at my desk & I always have a few packets in my drawer, I get so hungry & if I don’t have something marginally healthy to hand I will eat whatever I can find, that normally involves chocolate or something sweet. So these little packs of raisins are a good size for snacking on.
I know Burt’s Bees do a Lemon Cuticle Oil too which I like but I have been using this on mu cuticles I find it a little too waxy for a hand salve & it takes some working in to your hands so I like to rub it in to my cuticles when they’re feeling dry. Its handy to have on my desk & its in such a little tin it takes up no space at all.
OMG does this smell so good & its extremely hydrating on the lips. It does a great job at keeping my lips moisturised. I don’t have to reapply it that much throughout but I like having it to hand & I just love the scent of it . Crazy Rumor offer a wide selection of flavours and they all sound lovely.
I like to have hand sanitiser & always use this. This one smells sweet & the scent lingers for ages. I have a few of these from B&BW and just love how inexpensive they are and they have so many scents to pick from.
Sharpie / Pens
I’m a stationery addict so this Sharpie just represents my pen pot (which is jam packed full of pens). I love to doodle at my desk when I’m meant to be working or when I am on the phone (bad habit). Sharpies are my weakness and when I see a new colour I have to have it. Tell me I am not alone on this.
I have an abundance of pretty notebooks and because I buy that many they often never get used so I have been making a point to get more organised and try to keep one on my desk & I also have one in my handbag. I have been loving Wilko’s for cute stationery lately and they nearly always have a sale on.
I don’t have a mobile phone (SHOCKER) so I tend to have my Ipad close by for keeping up to date with social media, emails and all that sort of thing. I like to read my books & magazines on here too, saves space & weight in my handbag. So this device comes everywhere with me.
I can’t go a day without a cup of tea. I tend to drink green tea of some description but I always have a couple of tea bags to hand. Let me know what your favourite cup of tea is.
