Guest Picks: Get Work Done on a Sunny Spring Day
It's gorgeous outside, but you're stuck at your desk. Here's how to work while still enjoying all that spring has to offer
Days get longer, the temperature is steadily rising and I find it oh so difficult to stay indoors. In my office, focusing on my pile of to-dos, the only thing that fools me into working is to bring the essence of the outdoors inside by filling my office with natural elements and spring blooms. Believe me, it actually does the trick! — Eleni from My Paradissi

I've neglected mouse pads ever since my first optical mouse. Well, I'm obviously changing my mind after seeing this.
The right smell is especially important to create the appropriate atmosphere in a room. Light this jasmine candle and imagine your desk is situated in the middle of a blooming field.
Originally made to hold garden tools, this caddy would store office supplies equally well (if not better). Just imagine all those colored pencils and crayons neatly displayed in it.
