Caroline’s At-Work Desk Essentials

We’ve all had a case of the Mondays. Heading back to work after a particularly relaxing weekend can be tough. Whether you work from home or in an office, there are little things that can make starting the week a bit easier. From a relaxing candle and pretty notebook to an organizational pouch filled with your beauty favorites, these at-work essentials are sure to liven up your desk space and cure that inevitable afternoon slump.

Studies have shown that adding plants to an office space can reduce stress and boost creativity. My favorite one to keep desktop is our custom succulent arrangement. They require little maintenance (mist once or twice a week) and come in a small, portable size. Not to mention, they have great health benefits too. While most plants only release oxygen during the day, succulents are constantly releasing oxygen, even at night.

I’m a huge note taker and I like writing in notebooks. One of my favorites is this pretty floral English Heritage Notebook. Keep it on your desk for those quick brainstorm sessions and the small size fits nicely into a desk drawer or in your purse when you’re on-the-go. We all have our favorite pen, but what about a Small Graphite Object? This functional art piece writes like a pencil, but won’t rub off on your hands and doubles as a beautiful objet d’art.

Instead of schlepping your makeup bag to and from the office, keep a dedicated pouch of favorites at your desk. Appropriately dubbed the Filing Cabinet, this zipper pouch is perfect for keeping your at-work beauty essentials organized and all in one place. The three zipper compartment comes in a lovely shade of blue and the pouch stows away nicely on your desk.

When it comes to a mid-day refresh, there are a few products I like to keep on hand for touch-ups throughout the day. The UMA Absolute Anti-Aging Lip Oil and coveted May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon are the perfect antidote for dry office air and the May Lindstrom Jasmine Garden Face Mist is a favorite to maintain that dewy glow all day long, plus the smell is heavenly.

To help lift the mood and give the office a fresh scent, keep our Large Double Wick Candle close by. The subtle fragrance keeps throughout the entire burn and combines natural soy wax, lead-free cotton candlewicks, pure essences and fine fragrances for a perfectly clean scent. Your coworkers will thank you.

With how much time we spend at work, it only makes sense to make your desktop feel like your own. By adding a few essentials to your work environment, you are creating a relaxing, beautiful space that’s more likely to spark joy and keep those creative juices flowing. Monday isn’t looking so bad after all.

Caroline xoxo
