I would like to blame Pinterest for my obsession with having a perfect desk setup. In fact I'd like to blame Pinterest for my unrealistic expectations in life when it comes to: outfits, home decor, and everything really. It's okay though. Pinterest, I still love you.
But I swear that before I started spending all my spare time pinning like a crazy mofo, I didn't really know the importance of having a desk that would make everyone say “goals”.
Anyway, I find that having a desk or a dedicated space for blogging/work is so helpful. I find it helps me to be more productive. (Though sometimes like right now I will escape my desk to sit on the sofa under a blanket) but having a dedicated space to work does help me with my productivity.
So today, I thought I'd show you around my desk and some of my recent faves that have found themselves plonked next to me whilst I type away.
I always love getting new stationery and recently I have been obsessed with a few new additions. This Ohh Deer journal is so cute. I think it looks so pretty on my desk and it's so thick. It's almost too nice to write down my daily thoughts in but I think that's when you know you really love a stationery item because you're scared to ruin it. I also recently got some little notepads from Etsy. The marble notepad I have on my desk is so cute and great for putting in your handbag as it's quite thin and little.
I splurged on my West Elm Love sign over Christmas. I'd been eyeing it up for a couple of months and then when I got some Christmas money. It was straight in my basket! I love it so much and I think it's such a great touch to my desk. I do feel like lots of bloggers also have this now too but I guess it's cause it's so pretty. I have been eyeing up a couple more of the gold statues such as the Hello and XOXO sign which definitely reminds me of Gossip Girl.
My blog weekly planner is a recent addition to my desk. It's from Paper Chic Co on Etsy and it's a cute pad to use to plan your blog posts and videos. I tend to jot down ideas and notes on this pad as it makes me feel a little more productive for some reason!
Also I have a clear tray on my desk that I find great for putting magazines and stationery on. The tray is from Amara Living. It's so handy!
Places like Etsy are my faves for prettifying my desk. I'm really pleased with my set up at the moment. It's a place that I want to work from and enjoy working from.
Thanks for reading!
