Back to school cool! Our favorite time of the year; who doesn’t love the smell of fresh new binders and pens? Revamp your desk, home office or study with a few key pieces that we just can’t live without.
Post It: Post It never fails to amaze us with fresh and innovative product – things we wish we had come up with! New this back to school season is Post It Pockets – If you’re someone who likes to make random piles of paper or miscellaneous folders but can never find what you’re looking for, this is a perfect solution – they easily attach anywhere and come off clean. Keeping the earth in mind? Go green with digital notes. We couldn’t resist this exiting collaboration, the Pebble dispenser by Karim, described as where “form meets function” available in shades of purple, white and black, perfectly ergonomically weighted for one-hand tabletop use.
Container Store: Nothing is chicer than simple, clear storage! Not only are the clean lines of this Clear Desk Accessories collection from the Container Store aesthetically pleasing but the visibility adds maximum efficiency and easy access. Our top picks are the streamlined Letter Tray and the 3-Drawer Box will hold a wide variety of indispensables like paper clips, staples, rubber bands, and paperclips. They retail for $14.99 each and perfectly compliment their companions the Clear Memo Block & Letter Rack.
Smythson: Call us a bit old fashioned but even our Blackberry/iPad/iPhone combo can’t quite replace a sleek and stylish planner in print. Smythson knows us all too well and tempts us with their Mid-year 2011-2012 Panama Diary in navy for $70 (available in a rainbow of colors!), and personalized with silver stamp lettering.
Cri-de-Coeur: The quest for a great work bag with enough room for books, laptops and all your personal effects has always been a tough one. Add in the eco-friendly element and it’s practically hopeless…until now! Cri-de-Coeur’s Charlie Foldover Messenger Bag in Ash, $435, is environmentally conscious, versatile (it folds into about half its original size) and has lots of utility with a cross body strap, top handles and both exterior and interior pockets to make those hard to access items like keys and mobiles readily available.
Sharpie: Just when we thought we had every single shade under the sun Sharpie comes up with a new spectrum inspired by the 80’s. This new glam collection adds the perfect amount of pop to our daily notes or special occasion correspondences. Available in both fine and ultra fine – a set of 5 available for $6.99 or 24 for $29.99 for a limited time only. Like, totally awesome dude!
