Hey Gems! I hope you’re staying safe and not forgetting to keep up with the latest guidance from CDC amidst this Coronavirus outbreak. As more people starting to work from home, keeping a consistent routine and staying productive can be a challenge. So today, I wanted to share with you some of my tips on working from home and essential products that I keep on and around my desk. From my favorite day planner to personal humidifier, coasters, and body lotion, I tried to cover it in this blog post. So here are my work from home essentials:

Writing Essentials

Pen and Pencil Holder

Store all your writing essentials in style. See Il Bisonte Pen Holder in Caramel Cowhide Leather.

Day Planner

Stay organized with a Day Designer and never miss another deadline and project again.

Wireless Keyboard and Mouse

Supercharge your laptop game with a dedicated wireless keyboard and mouse for faster typing and more accurate data entry.

Blue Light Glasses

Block harmful UV light from electronics that puts strain on your eyes. Using Carrot Eyewear.

Calm and Comfort

Personal Humidifier

Humidify your personal space with this portable humidifier from HoMedics. It’s small enough to travel with as well so I try to always have it with me.

Scented Candle

I am currently loving this Dark Vanilla & Sandalwood Gilded Candle from Capri Blue


Perfect for city apartments with limited lighting. I love to recycle old candle jars and use them as planters as well. 

Flower Arrangements

Flowers always brighten my mood 🙂


Google Home Mini

Perfect for playing music and podcasts. I have a few of these at home and I love that you can pair them together to play a song on all speakers at once. Nest Mini.


Wireless Headphones

These wireless headphones from Ghostek are my absolute favorite. They seem to last forever on a single charge, have an easy pair mode with my phone and laptop and a great sound quality.


Get this Rode VideoMic to make skyping, zooming and podcasting from home a breeze.

Hard Drive

I love these Toshiba hard drives for backing up all of my photo and video memories. 

Everything Else

Hand Sanitizer

If you can get your hands on one. Also try to make your own at home.

Body Lotion

We will need all of the moisture after washing our hands 30 times a day. Skylar Body Lotion.
