5 essentials for your desk at work (guest post)

Thank you to Becky from Wicked Peacock for writing this post!

We’ve all been there. You’re at the office and something unexpected comes up. Whether it’s an important meeting, business lunch, or sporadic evening drinks with the girls you need an at-work spruce up. I’ve put together a desk essentials kit for these mini work emergencies. Here’s what tops my list for a quick transformation!

  • travel size hairspray
  • lipstick in a favorite color
  • tin of mints
  • roll on perfume
  • go-to accessories

A bold necklace can transform even the most basic black dress and make you stand out (in a good way). It’s an easy way to upgrade your look and to transition from a day at the office to an evening event. Here are 3 necklaces from Wicked Peacock I’d love to hide in my desk…

Blue and Green Riverstone Bib Necklace

Double Scalloped Teal Necklace

Enamor Necklace

Working girl accessories: cute things for your desk

If you’re stuck at a desk job all day, I can relate. I still find it helps to personalize your desk as much as you can.  On my desk, I have pictures of my family, boyfriend and friends, pictures of Costa Rican beaches from past vacations, a desk lamp and more.

If you’re looking for more ways to spruce up your office space, here are some cute desk accessories:

USB hub

letter storage


pencil set


How do you personalize your desk?


Working girl accessories: handbags

There are endless cute handbag options for work.  For me, it’s most important for my work bag to have room in it!  I commute on public transportation, so I need a bag to keep my kindle or magazine, shoes, lunch, water bottle and then all the other regular purse items, like a wallet, keys, phone, etc.  What do you carry in your work handbag?
