What's On My Desk and TaoTronics Elune Lamp Giveaway

To be completely honest, I prefer working on my laptop from the comfort of my giant corner sofa :) but... when I want to be more productive, I get things done at my desk. I  share it with my husband, so it isn't totally my style, but it is a nice little space and I like having my side more girly and Scott's side modern. The desk we ended up getting is an IKEA Alex which consists of two Alex units and a 200cm long white worktop. It is massive and exactly what we were looking for! The newest addition to our desk landscape is a black TaoTronics Elune Lamp*, which we both love and... I am also giving one away to one of my lucky readers! You can enter the competition, by filling in the rafflecopter widget on the bottom of this post.

On my side of the desk, I have my laptop, my Lumie SAD Lamp, my iPad mini, some mint green ikea folders (with notebooks, press releases etc), my weekly planners, cute sticky notes, Neom Enchantment Diffuser, Anthropologie initial mug with some flowers inside, my water cup and a bottle of VOSS water and a little white box for bits and bobs like my watch, memory cards, card readers, Caudalie Beauty Elixir and lip balm. 

Weekly planner (ebay, £3.99), Sticky Notes (ebay, £3.99)

On Scott's side, he keeps his little golf club bag pen holder, his huge LG monitor (which I use as well), keyboard, mouse, tablets, docking station, a Vestalife Firefly speaker dock that we currently use as speakers and the TaoTronics Lamp.

I actually asked for the TaoTronics Elune Lamp*(£99.99, £32.99) in white and received black by mistake, but... as soon as Scott noticed it, he asked me to keep it because he wanted a black lamp for his side of the desk anyway and the design of this one is totally up his street.

The TaoTronics Elune lamp is very modern, sleek and simple. You can even fold it to save space! It is 18" tall, features a touchscreen control pad and LED bulbs with a lifespan of over 25 years, which use 80% less energy than standard lamps. There is also a 5V/1A USB charging port on the side, perfect for charging your phone etc.

There are four lighting modes to choose from: 
- Reading: cool white light 
- Study: brightest cool white light
-Relax: cozy warm light
-Sleep: comfortable warm light

There is also an extra 60min auto-off timer feature, for those who use it for bedtime reading or as a bedside lamp.

Each mode can be set to one of  5 levels of brightness and you simply touch the "+/-" to get the perfect light. I find the Study light on the brightest setting perfect for taking blog photos at night time. It gives a similar effect to my softbox lighting to be honest and it is much more convenient and cheaper! 

Overall, both me and my husband are very pleased with the TaoTronics Elune lamp and we can't recommend it enough. If you like the look of it, make sure to enter my giveaway and you might be lucky enough to win one :)  It's UK only.

Good luck!
