Creating a “sanctuary for success” where you work is a crucial part of building and sustaining a life you love. Here are few oessentials from my own home office…
My days of downing morning coffee are long behind me (tear) but that doesn’t mean I can’t work with a mug of tea next to me that delivers a jolt of happiness every time I glance at it. My current favorite mug is this beauty from Ashley Brooke Designs that reminds me to “get it done” and keep on moving forward. Pick from this ABD style or several others in her online shop.

What’s your phone charging situation? Does it bring you joy? Does it save your phone from being squashed when it’s charging on the floor? Does it add utility and fun to your old, boring plug? Well it should. And it can, if you snag one of Nice by Design’s “CableKeeps”. Not only do they up the design and function quotient, but they’re made with non-toxic, easily recycled materials!
Upgrade my charger!
For years my home office faced a quandry: I wanted greenery and life in it, but I lacked the time and green thumb to make that possible. Then succulents entered my life. Beautiful, easy to care for, and more varieties, colors and styles than you probably realize! My go to source is Succulent Oasis on Etsy, who provide a large assortment of these beauties and will ship them safely to you.
Check out these succulents!
The moment I discovered Banter Banner I was hooked. Just like the founder of this sassy design company, I’d like to think that every day calls for a little celebration, and I love finding new opportunities and goodies to inject joy into my life. That’s exactly what these banners do. Pick out one of her inspiring (or funny) options or customize one of your own!

This poster hangs above my desk and houses a motivational quote that I suggest you make your morning battle cry. Sometimes I read it quietly to myself for a pep talk! Surrounding yourself with reminders like this allows them to seep into your mind, and making sure you don’t forget to do what makes you happy, live without regrets and really embrace this magical adventure we call life.
Creating a sanctuary for success means you’ll need to court all your senses in order to create a mood for manifesting greatness. One of my sensory paths to peace and favorite ways to set the mood for creating is a candle and my “go to for glow” is the Archipelago Tuberose Mason Jar candle. It smells fresh and floral, burns for 70 hours and helps create a relaxed and beautiful atmosphere that welcomes me to work.
Sooth your senses, pick out a candle…
Meet Archimedes, my office mascot. Sure, the space where you work needs to keep you calm, clear, focused and joyful but let’s be honest, you also need a little something whimsical in the mix! The moment I passed this baby in a local home design store I knew he had to come home with me. How could I pass up a crowned squirrel? Snag your own squirrel – or another fun office mascot – over at A & G Merch online!
Take me to my mascot!
Too many of us neglect picking out an office chair that brings us joy and comfort, and that’s got to stop! You should feel awesome about every part of your work space (or as much of it as you possibly can). If you’re sitting in it throughout the day, make your desk chair your throne! I love this chair because it checks all the boxes, from style to comfort and makes me look forward to sitting down and facing the day.
