Desk Favorites at Work!

Hey everyone! Here's a spin-off of what's in my grocery bag... it's "What's on my desk at work!" LOL. Not super exciting, but it's interesting when I start noticing the things I reach for repeatedly!

  • My compact! (Just a mirror) Before going on the air it's nice to make sure there's no food in my teeth or smeared lipstick. Got this cute one from cherryculture.com :)
  • Bath & Body Works PocketBac in Paradise Coconut... I pretty much always have to have one of these little hand sanitizers at my desk. They smell fantastic & they're very handy to keep in/on my desk.
  • Water... trying to drink more water! There's usually a drink container of some sort on my desk!
  • Lancome Juicy Tubes Smoothies in Beach Plum... a basic creamy red shade that always looks good on air. I just leave it in my desk for moments that I don't want to run back to the makeup mirror to touch-up.
  • Ice Breakers mints - Wintergreen... after a morning spent reading over scripts and drinking coffee, I always pop a couple of mints so my co-anchor doesn't have to endure coffee breath.
  • Blue Papermate pens... pens tend to disappear in our newsroom. These are cheap & I actually love the way they write. I keep a bag of them in my purse for when my pens mysteriously go missing.
My question for you-- what's on your work desk- whether it's at a place of business or at home? Snap a picture and post it at http://www.facebook.com/beautybroadcast :) Have a great day!

Daily Nuggets...
  • I'm wearing ModLash #53 lashes today... apparently whatever I've been putting on lately has been much more dramatic because these seem very very subtle! Interesting how perceptions change after wearing your makeup different ways.
  • Wore one of my new Wal-Mart shirt finds on the morning show today. Kind of a loud print, but I've gotten some compliments on it! :) Planning to post that video soon.
  • I can't wait to watch last night's episode of Mad Men-- who else is watching this season?? My top shows right now are probably Mad Men & American Idol!

  3. I have very similar items in my desk at work! :) I do know what you mean about false lashes! It is crazy how things seem so natural after a week or two of going all out with your makeup!

  6. Thoughts on American Idol? I've watched every season, and am a singer myself, and I have to say this is the worst season so far. :(

  7. You have Cumberland Gap spring water in Illinois?! I had no idea they were distributing that far. I'm less than an hour from them.

  11. My "desk" must haves. I'm a stay at home mom, so I so have a desk in my work space so to speak. But next to my laptop I always keep; nail clippers, phone, coffee/water, bic pro+ in black, note pad, snacks for kids, hair tie, and baby monitor( in case one of my kids are napping). Those things are always in my close reach. I can't wait to see your walmart haul. :)

  12. Might be a strange question but do you do your make up yourself for the news or is there a make-up artist?
