If you came to my office and looked around my desk, you'd probably notice that boring office supplies are one of my pet peeves. We spend so much time at work - why should we be surrounded by plain notebooks and staplers and files? When my desk is covered in color and fun, I feel better. So, my desk is stocked with colorful, unique supplies and decorations. Check out my current desktop favorites below. Click the images to shop! Happy desk brightening! : )
Garden Party Journals (Set of 3) - $14.95 at papersource.com
These journals are vibrant and beautiful - they really brighten up my desk. And I love that the cover is flexible. It's easy to fold it up and tuck it under my arm when I'm heading to a meeting or running around the school or on a field trip. I am soo loyal to these notebooks!
See Jane Work Stapler - $10 from seejanework.com
Not only does this colorful stapler brighten up my cubicle, it also prevents my coworkers from borrowing it and never giving it back! ;) I truly believe that life is too short and we spend too much time at work to surround ourselves with boring, basic office supplies. I love that this stapler is colorful and fun! It looks so cute on my desk!
bkr Elle Heart Water Bottle - $35 at bkr.com
I drink a crazy amount of water, so I keep this little guy by my side all day long. This is the best water bottle I've ever owned and it is worth every penny. It's glass, so it doesn't absorb flavors and colors, and it's cute and colorful on my desk. The rubber grip makes it easy to hold onto and I love the handle on the top.
Wall Art Calendar - $29.95 at papersource.com
I have the 2017 version of this calendar and I'm so happy they made another one for 2018! The designs are gorgeous. I look forward to the first of each month because I get to flip to a new page. This calendar rests against my cubicle wall and brightens up my whole desk area. I get constant compliments on this guy. (Fun Fact: Each page has a template on the back, so you can turn the paper into fun crafts)
J.R. Watkins Shea Butter Lavender Hand Cream - $9.99 at jrwatkins.com
This hand cream looks pretty on my desk, but it's also a great product! The lavender scent is calming during my busy days and the formula is free from parabens and other chemicals.
