After a year in business, I know my desk essentials. There is a handful of things I can’t live without on a daily basis, so I keep those desk essentials within an arms reach.
I know it sounds crazy to list beauty products first – but these babies keep me moisturized and dewey all day. And when you’re working 14+ hours a day like I am, why wouldn’t you want to treat yourself to a little luxury mid-day? Herbivore Botanicals has become my go-to. Their Orchid Facial Oil is one of my top desk essentials because it smells like the loveliest perfume you’ve ever owned, but in a softer, fresher way. It’s perfect to throw on when I get an unexpected visitor at the office and need to feel like a whole human.
The summer heat keeps the AC blasting, which dries out my skin. The rose beauty mist from Herbivore is a fave, but I love the Love + Roses version, too.
Lastly, I keep two kinds of lip balm on me at all times. Herbivore (yes, there is a theme) and Glossier’s balm dotcom. The lip conditioner from Herbivore is lightweight and glossy. Balm Dotcom is transformative.
More office tour to come (and I will FINALLY be linking the sources on all the decor, like where I got the giant mood board, pretty wood clock, and the perfect L-shaped desk).
