So I am really dragging today! Typically in the mornings and most of the day I am in my home office working on my business (Nikris Designs) in my pajamas :). I must say it is probably the room I utilize the most. So while sitting here procrastinating today I figured I would blog about the favorite things that I have in my home office.
Well I think I must start with my tea cup. The first thing I do before sitting down at my desk is fix my cup of tea each morning. Now I am a avid tea and coffee drinker so a big cup is a must. This tea cup fits me perfectly. It is large and in charge, plus it has the "bling" that I love. I also love my tea cup because the platter is large enough to hold my sugar spoon and tea infuser spoon.
My next favorite thing that I have in my office is my Ipad 2. This is a true necessity. How can I work without watching Dr. Phil and the Bravo channel :). So during the day while in my office my Ipad 2 serves as my television. I love it because my home cable service has a app that allows me to watch tv on my Ipad.
Pier 1 imports Citrus Cilantro home fragrance has been my favorite for about 9 years now. I don't use the fragrance through out my house because I love using the Scentsy for the house. I just use a couple sprays in the morning in my office due to the smell perks me up! It is such a refreshing and uplifting scent. So you will always find this little bottle sitting on my desk.
Of course I have to have my ambiance in my home office (and my home) at all times. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge candle lover. I go through a fair share of candles due to I burn them all day long. Rather day or night, candles relax me. I just broke out a new candle today! I really had no choice due to I burned the last down to the glass :). I love switching out and trying different candles, so I keep a varied collection in stock. So the one I am burning now is "Country Club" by Ralph Lauren. I like this candle because it has a nice soft aroma that does not fight against the my Scentsy.
So once I have the mood right and tea in hand, it is time to get to work :). This leads me to my next favorite thing in my home office which is my mouse. This mouse has been with me for about two years now and is still going strong! I love it because of course it has the "bling" I love, but it is also a great hand massager. I often use the studs to massage my hand during the day :).
The "Thoughts" notebook is also another of my favorites. This is a very important notebook! My memory is not the best so every time I think of something, or find a awesome website I will write it down in this book. It is my everything as far as my desk is concerned. Another great feature about it is that it doubles as my mouse pad :). It is a leather type book so makes for the perfect mouse pad. I love those dual purpose office accessories!
So as you all know I design jewelry and more. Some times I will actually work on some pieces at my desk. This is why I love my next favorite desk item. It is my magnifying glass. It is perfect to help me see those small pieces. I love it because it stands up so I don't have to use my hands to hold it while working on jewelry. Not to mention it is Eiffel Tower themed, so of course I love anything Paris.
While I am working (which I am sure you all experience this too) I must have my handy lotion available. So my next favorite item which I keep handy on my desk at all times is my "BEAUTY" by Calvin Klein lotion. Nice soft scent and silky feel....LOVE IT! You will notice that it is sitting on top of a little "Bling". This is my little mirror (See pictured below). A girl always needs her mirror close by.
So of course one of my favorites is my letter opener and pen by Nikris Designs :). On my desk I have a teal colored pen and opener to match my decor. My office it totally neutral with splashes teal accessories.
So one of my favorite organizers in my office is my two drawer "wanna be" charging station :). The reason I call it my "wanna be" charging station is because it is not a charging station but it is where I sit my blackberry to charge. I am going to get hubby to drill a hole in the back so that I can make it a real charging station. I also love this piece because it is perfect to store all of my receipts and incoming mail for the day. It sits on the credenza in my home office.
Ok now onto my last favorite thing. It is my DYMO lable printer. I love this little gadget! It is a handy dandy tool if you need to print label quick and in a hurry. I have a little widget on my desktop computer that allows me to type up and print a label in no time at all. It is also handy because the second slot is actually for stamps. It allows me to print my postage from the machine. This is one of the gifts hubby gave me for my birthday this year. This is a great time saver.
So I hope you enjoyed my share on the things that I love in my home office. These things make my day run smooth and are a daily must for me. Well it is time to get to work :) Have a beautiful day everyone!
