Back to Business

Be inspired to start afresh and climb that career ladder. Hard work and perseverance make good companions on your journey, and doing it in style of course is essential. Back to school shopping isn’t just for your kids. As an adult, back to work shopping is just as important. Whether it’s to impress in the boardroom with that chic new suit or lift your Monday blues with a versatile work bag, don’t dismiss the importance of getting back into the daily grind! (It’s also just another excuse to go shopping, and who doesn’t love treating themselves to something new and sparkly!?)

Here at Esin Akan, work is a 365 day job, but that 9-5 is made easier with a pretty desk ornament and a gorgeous statement tote bag to carry you through the week! Here are our 5 essential picks to improve your promotion prospects in week 1.


  1. Start your day off right with this Click Cup. Perfect for keeping your morning pick me up hot to last you till an office refill. The sleek black design is ideal to fit into your laptop bag

  1. Remind yourself of what’s in sight with this classic plain notebook. Write down all your lists, goals and dreams. Inspire yourself daily to achieve even the smallest of things, because they add up to your end goal. Available in a range of colours, although we think this royal blue will pair nicely with our Smoke City Tote bag.
