At-Home Workspace with OttLite

It has been a while since I tackled my to-do list in my at-home workspace, so a nice little re-vamp is just what I needed to get back in the groove of things. Over the weekend, I went through everything to get rid of stuff I have never used or things that I just don't need, cause naturally I use to over buy everything office supplies. ha! 

The newest edition to my little workspace is the OttLite LED Crane Lamp, which has made all the difference, since I didn't have an efficient way of lighting the room without using the over head lamp (which I am a NOT a fan of because of the warm light it puts off). The OttLite Lighting system was created by a photobiologist, who actually studied natural daylight effects on living things. Creating a space that is easy to work in it essential to being productive. The type of lighting truly can affect the way a person thinks and how they visualize things - so having a light source that allows you to view things clearing and without straining the eyes is important. 

Even when I am not at home on the computer, I spend my entire day using a computer when interacting with my patients. Having a lighting system that doesn't cause eye strain is so essential and a important part of vision health. When I am at work, I am constantly straining and find that I get headaches easily because of this. My new OttLite LED Crane Lamp has been extremely helpful when a get home from a long day and still have patient charts to finish. It is easy to move around without causing excess clutter and the flexible neck is convenient to adjust when needing more precise light.

The OttLite LED Crane Lamp has been a great addition to my at-home workspace and am considering purchasing one for work as well. I love the minimalistic look at the creates and fits perfectly with my aesthetic.

Tied In A Knot


There is something about a pair of high rise denim + white button down top that it easy to throw at any time. Banana Republic's minimalist style makes it easy to pair simple pieces like this front tie button down with my favorite denim. To spice up my outfit I through on a sexy black lace bralette from Anine Bing. And since I have a thing for slides - this pair was easy to slip on when running out the door get some errands done. & they are super comfy!

What is your go-to favorites for running errands?

Tender Romance

I own way too many perfumes & am always looking for something new to add to my collection. One of the first fragrances I ever owned was Ralph Lauren Romance, so I was excited to get to try the newer version, Tender Romance. This beautifully packaged fragrance with blush colored hues smells just as lovely on. Ralph Lauren's Tender Romance is gentle and sweet with a hint of magnolia, but also warm, which allows it to be very wearable and simple, yet sophisticated enough any age.  I have already worn this several times while hanging out with N + he has complimented me each and every time. So I know if he loves it, its a good one.

If you are looking for a new scent this fall to cuddle up with, any purchase of a 3.4oz bottle of one of the Romance trilogy fragrances – the original Romance, the sexy Midnight Romance, or the new Tender Romance – you will receive a beautiful cosmetic bag complete with travel size eau de parfum and a body moisturizer, perfect for a weekend away. So grab your own bottle & cuddle up with Ralph Lauren.
