Fun at Work: 5 Pretty and Practical Ways to add Style to your Desk

 So maybe you are stuck in a cubicle, or maybe your workspace at home is feeling a little lackluster. With all of us resolving to work harder this New Year, I thought it would be fun to give a few pretty, yet practical, pointers for styling your desk, no matter how much room you've got. The bonus? None of these suggestions will break the bank!

1. Acrylic Accessories: Make even the most mundane of office necessities sparkle and shine.

5. A Cute Note Pad: Let's face it, nobody likes a daunting to-do list, but it somehow seems more manageable when written on adorable stationary.

Acrylic desk supplies are definitely my fave, I just haven't gotten around to purchasing them yet. It's true though, I work harder when surrounded by a pretty space!
