10 Lovely Touches For Your Office/Home Desk

Whether you have an office desk at a company you work for or work from home it's always nice to add those touches which don't keep reminding you that you are yet to win the lottery so you don't have to work at all and can just sit on a beach with a cocktail...maybe one day!
There are some really nice things you can buy for your desk and I have to admit I have a little obsession when it comes to browsing the web for stationary items. With the majority of people likely to read this being fellow bloggers who will more than likely have their own desk I wanted to share some of these with you :)

Paperchase Black Bird Metal Desk Box - £10 (currently on sale)
Wilko Glitter Gel Pens - £1.25 pack of 5
Radley A5 Notebook - £12

Let me know if you'll be purchasing any of these lovely items or which are your favourite.
