OttLite Natural Daylight Desk Lamp {Review & Giveaway}

OttLite logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Nancy's Couture!}

I love discovering what hobbies other people enjoy. From reading to knitting to scrapbooking to building model airplanes, there is always something interesting that we all like to do to occupy our time.

So when it comes to spending our valuable spare moments cracking open that book or pulling out the sewing machine, we need to make the best out of them. A cup of coffee and some background music, perhaps? And light. Definitely light.

Instead of straining your eyes to see the tiny beads in your jewelry-making kit or squinting at the glare of the computer screen, enjoying what you love can only be made better with a light that combines form, function and style. Which is exactly what you'll find from OttLite.

OttLiteBuilt on the expansion of Dr. Ott’s original vision of providing natural sunlight indoors, today OttLite offers many technologically-advanced (and modern-looking) products. With everything from makeup mirrors to safety flip-lites to desk and floor lamps, there is something for everyone in a variety of styles and colors.

With their High Definition Natural Lighting, OttLite has found a way to bring the sunshine indoors through its 508 Illumination. Their products generate very low heat, reduce glare, eyestrain, and headaches and provide the ideal balance of brightness and contrast, allowing users to see colors that are true to life, and details with more clarity and accuracy. Better still, they are energy-efficient and eco-friendly. What more could you need?

For me, the OttLite Natural Daylight Desk Lamp was the perfect fit, as its sleek look and versatility works in nearly any room of the house.

OttLite Natural Daylight Desk LampAvailable in five bright colors, the Natural Daylight Desk Lamp is modern, lightweight and so unique looking that my 3-year-old took one glance at it and ask, "What is that thing, Mommy?"

OttLite Natural Daylight Desk Lamp reviewI, on the other hand, loved the contemporary arc and could tell right away that the weighted base was going to keep the entire 14" height steady and eliminate the possibility of it tipping over.

Assembly for this lamp couldn't have been much easier, as I simply had to firmly push the 13 watt OttLite bulb (which is rated to last up to 10,000 hours!) into place under the top...

OttLite light bulb...and then give a push to the easy on-off switch on the base to experience the clarity of the 508 Natural Daylight Illumination.

OttLite powerWho would have thought that one light could make such a difference? Although I had initially been a little skeptical, once I had the Natural Daylight Desk Lamp turned on, I understood what OttLite meant when they said that it would bring less eye strain and make it easier to see the details of your project. Everything was just so white and clear!

OttLite desk lampWhether piecing together a puzzle or embroidering your latest design, the OttLite Natural Daylight Desk Lamp has the ability to provide a bright, crisp environment no matter where you are. As this only weighs 5 pounds, I haven't had a problem picking it up and bringing it from room to room to enjoy the convenience... as well as the cool, contemporary look.

Typically retailing for $79.99, this lamp is currently on sale for $57.99, so if you are in the market for a way to add some quality and style to your desk, a bedside table, your craft room or next to your favorite chair, now is the time!

As the OttLite collection features lights for traditional needs (e.g. floor lamps, beauty lamps for the bathroom, etc) as well as for more specific purposes (e.g. magnification lamps, lamps for planet growth, etc), there is sure to be at least one that will work in your home or make a wonderful gift. You just can't beat bringing a little sunny goodness right indoors!

And, thanks to OttLite's generosity, one person will be able to do just that, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of color OttLite
Natural Daylight Desk Lamp!
