A candle! We’re not allowed to have these on our desks at work, so very happy to have one lit at home to get me through the day. At the moment I’m loving:

I always keep Aveda’s Chakra 6 Balancing Pure-Fume Mist on my desk. A few spritzes of the Ayurvedic, oil blend into air resets my mind and creates a zen working environment.

I keep some Palo Santo sticks in a dish on my desk for when I need to hit refresh mentally. It calms me and is way safer around paper and wires than a burning candle!

In an effort to keep my workspace as close the office as I can, I packed up a few favourites from my desk. This #BuyFromTheBush Folk and Freya tray, along with the fragrances it houses, made the cut. Welcome home!

I've enjoyed buying a small bunch of flowers each week from our local florist to put on my desk. It's something I never tend to buy for myself usually, as so little time is spent at home.

I’m used to drinking quite a few cups of tea when I’m in the office, so It feels good to keep up the routine at home (and avoid that third coffee!). My go-to is a camomile and spearmint blend, which you’ll usually find warming up my desk.

I have a stack of books and magazines on my desk which I am referencing all day. I am isolating along so it’s nice to be reading about lots of different people and getting inspired by what others are doing. A friend just sent me Live Beautiful so enjoying that!!

My desk essential is undoubtedly my Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash by Aesop. I have been religiously buying this product for years now and the bottle lasts for ages! Not only does it remind me to practice good hygiene, it also looks super chic in my WFH space.

I keep Alpha-H’s Absolute Lip Perfector Nude Blush on my desk for keeping my lips hydrated throughout the day. The formula is really thick and hydrating plus it contains mint which I find really refreshing.

During these tricky (and noisy) times working from home, my headphones are always on my desk. I love my Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H8i noise-cancelling set.

I am a self-confessed coffee addict, so when setting up my WFH space I knew my Vittoria machine had to have a spot. I also love that when I get to make myself my morning coffee, the smell lingers - something that always keeps me motived.
