Oh, snap – this is about to get awesome for all of us.  Like “product review for me” and “giveaway for you” awesome.  So, like a bazillion gazillion years ago…ok, fine it was only officially two months ago.  Well, like two insanely long months ago, I posted about one of THE awesomest places to get officey stuff in the whole entire solar system (check out my original brag sesh here). I mean, I’m pretty sure that if Aliens had offices they’d hop on the milky-way and ride it all the way to See Jane Work to score some stylin’ office products, and then of course, they’d rub it in their alien friend’s faces.

But, guess what?  Aliens have absolutely nothing to do with this post.  Just keep reading.

In addition to all of the fantastic products sold online, a brand new line of See Jane Work desk accessories have just been made available at Office Depot!  Werd.  If you know anything about how See Jane Work was born, you know that it was a result of  Holly Bohn being tired of the same old’ run of the mill office products in the big supply stores (Holly, by the way, is the amazingly stylish and smart woman behind the See Jane Work brand). Now HER stuff is lining THEIR shelves.  I love how things have a way of coming full circle and creating a great partnership.

 So, Holly had a chance to read my initial post and as a thank you, sent me a humongous box of goodies from the new Office Depot line so that I could give my office a lil’ face lift. I want to point out that although she sent me these sweet treats, there weren’t any crisp million dollar bills slipped inside the products or anything.  She realizes that I’m a “say it like it is kinda girl” and put her products in my hands for a 100% honest review. And that my friends, says a TON about how tall she stands behind her stuff.

Photo Color Disclaimer:  Life wouldn’t be life without a lil’ disclaimer, so here’s mine. I have an awesome camera.  Apparently, the lighting in my loft is not so awesome though and that is annoying.   Note that these desk accessories are a gorgeous ”Plum” color (most accurately portrayed in the “humongous box of goodies contents” image above.  Just think Eggplant and you’ll get the gist).  I have no clue what happened to the coloring in the rest of the pics.  It’s not the product.  Just my dumb lighting, FYI.

First, let me tell you that although these are “faux” leather, they feel and look like the real deal. Faux-sho.  The stitching is flawless and the color really pops.  If the lighting in my apartment wasn’t so lame, you’d see what I mean about the color popping statement. But, we’ve already gone there, so let’s just move on.

 I usually go for the less expensive desk accessories, since the richy lookin’ stuff is way outta my league.  BUT, the awesome thing about this eco-friendly line is that it is totally affordable.  So, you can look like you’re rollin’ in the dough without having to get 3 part time jobs actually “rolling dough” to afford it.  Cha-Ching!  Visit your local Office Depot to see the mix and match varieties and prices.

As I was movin’ stuff around in my workspace, I realized that sometimes it’s just a matter of gettin’ rid of the clutter and showcasing a couple of great pieces (check out other great tips like this via the “Learn” section at the SJW website).  Anyway, I finally sorted through a bunch of unread mail and did some filing.  As a result, I was able to showcase the Plum Faux Leather Pencil Cup and Letter Tray with a couple of presents my hubby has gotten for me (Letterpress L-O-V-E and the killer desk lamp and owl accessory plate).  No, you cannot have him. He’s all mine.











When all is said and done, I think the hutch area is my favorite though.  Before my “humongous box of goodies” arrived from See Jane Work, it was obnoxious and missing something:

I added the Plum Faux Leather Desk Valet and filled it with some matching designer file folders from SJW, along with a big “J” in case I forget what letter my name starts with.



I also added 3 Plum Faux Leather Magazine files on top of the hutch to balance things out.  The Magazine Files were great for uh…magazines…but, they were also good for shopping catalogs and notebook storage.They were definitely not a good hiding place for my 25-pound Maine Coon kitty though. Really urge you to never-ever try that.

And, viola! Now it actually looks like a grown up works in this space!

I still need to get a couple of additional things to clean up my shelf (kinda, sorta seen here to the right of the hutch).  I TOTALLY plan on snaggin them from See Jane Work and signing up for the “Jane’s Rewards Program“, which I just recently learned about.  The rewards program  not only gives me points for every dollar spent, but also gives me extra points for reviewing products and telling my BFF’s.  Why wouldn’t I?  Well, I would  (obviously), but why wouldn’t you? Quite honestly, I still have no clue why people don’t take advantage of these great rewards programs offered by companies like See Jane Work.  It’s such a win for the person buying the stuff.

Why you ask? Here’s why:  The company sellin’ the stuff gets valuable info about the products they are selling so that YOU are always getting their very best, and YOU get points to get money off the stuff you are buying.  I mean, you were going to buy the stuff anyway!

Sometimes I find myself steering clear of programs like this because I’m certain there is a catch.  But in this case, no one is trying to brainwash you into something you don’t want to do.  Someone (See Jane Work) realizes your time is super valuable and is just trying to “help a sista’ out” for “helpin a sista’ out”, if you get my drift.  I for one, plan on letting her help me save all the money she wants!

But, that’s not the best part.  The best part is that Holly was SO generous that she has another “humongous box of goodies” just like mine waiting for one lucky winner and the giveaway starts NOW!  The prize includes:

1-Plum Faux Leather Pencil Cup

1-Plum Faux Leather Letter Tray

1-Faux Leather Desk Valet, and

3-Faux Leather Magazine files!

I’m also throwing in 1-$25.00 Gift Card redeemable at See Jane Work so you can buy some cute lil’ accessories to jazz up this great desk accessory set.  YEY!

Just click the “Read the rest of SEE JANE WORK {IT} AND GIVE {IT} AWAY” link below to enter for your chance to win this sweet prize package valued at $128 bucks.

The lucky winner will be announced on or about January 24th, 2012 .

Good luck!

I’m sorta OCD. Well, it’s never been an official diagnosis, but I tend to develop issues with confusion when things don’t follow a certain path of symmetry or color scheme.  I’m weird.  When me and the Scientist first decided to shack up, it was one of the first things we learned about each other – he is function and I am style (although, the reason for my style is for purposes of being able to function, so I guess I’m function too).  Shhh.. Don’t tell him that.  He’s the guy that has to make sure that if you are reaching for your toothbrush in the bathroom, there is a proper distance from mouth, to hand, to brush.  And, I’m the girl who says, just put it on that shelf, because the toothbrush handle color matches our color scheme so it’ll look purty there.

Take my home office for example (yeah, baby…this is where the magic happens).  Lot’s of containers, “baskety-things” (as he would say) and color coordination (you’ll see why I’m saying that some day when I show pics of the rest of the loft).  This is how I do it.  And, I couldn’t do it without companies like the one I’m about to gush about – who in my big fat opinion should be on the favorite list of every trendy, fab, stylin’ workin girl out there.


This company is the cat’s meow, first-rate, a-plus in my book and super cute ta boot.  Founder/Creative director Holly Bohn came up with the idea of miss Jane (a fictional character) after being frustrated with the drab colors available at the big office supply stores.  Since stylish office supplies were proving tough to find, she created See Jane Work “The Destination for Office Style + Organization” and now you can find all your chic (and functional) office goods here too.  Be sure to click on the “Look” button for inspiration!

Here are a couple of my favs:

Galison Pencil Cup for $7 bucks

These are so fun!  Lovin the pink/orange combo.

Find it:  Here






Skull Crossbones Tray for $20 bucks

I always take my earrings off if I have a conference call.  I need this to set them in, so I stop losin’ em.  This is goin on the wish list.

Find it:  Here





Frog Tape Dispenser for $12 bucks and fitty-cent

Because it’s absolutely imperative to have fun no matter what your job title is.
