Blogger Series: Desk Tour

Where I work each and everyday is so important to me. If I’m in an environment I don’t love, chances are I won’t be productive, and I’ll find a million different excuses to avoid my work. I try to change up my workspace as often as possible to keep my creativity and inspiration flowing. Obviously I don’t get a new desk and rennovate every time I’m in the mood for a bit of change, but I mix and match pieces that quite honestly make me happy. I’ll rotate artwork in and out, and keep pieces around I know make me feel good.

As a beauty blogger, my desk is almost always filled with products. I try my best to keep it at a minimum, but when I’m working on several projects I like to have the products I’m focusing on nearby. It reminds me to work on the post, and keeping them close usually leads to experimentation in my free time.

I tend to keep a few magazines on my desk at all times. They’re pretty to look at and I gain a ton of inspiration for blog posts from reading articles and looking at spreads. I cannot stop looking at the August 2015 edition of Harper’s Bazaar with Natalie Portman on the cover! It is quite honestly one of the most beautiful fashion spreads I have seen in years.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a bit, then you know how much I love planning and organizing. I would literally be lost without my planners (yes, I keep multiples). If you’re a fan of the Day Designer you will be thrilled to find out that Whitney English and Blue Sky collaborated to bring the Day Designer to Target! They’re available in so many different sizes and designs. Not only is the Day Designer an incredible planner, but it has also taken the place of all of my to-do lists. The planners are structured in a way to keep you beyond organized.

  1. I am so very unorganized. So, I have to write myself notes in order to remember stuff. UGH!!

  2. Thanks for the great giveaway!
    I like to do cleaning on my desk once a week and throw away all the outdated notes and thing that I don’t use/

  3. We have a calendar stuck to the closest side of the fridge for all the family to see!

  4. multi-colored sharpies! and a calendar app for my husband to put his events into is super helpful

  5. I’m a stay at home mom, to a one year old, as well as a wife to a solider. I am also a online student, so organization is KEY to a fluidly running household- and I rely fully on a planner! I make my lists in my planner, right my assignment, readings for school that I have to do, doctors appointments, my husbands field training days. My life DEPENDS on my planner. Yes my iPad and phone have planners, and calendars; but, I am a very hands on person, and work, in a some what old school way, where writing things down helps me remember.

    Aside from a planner I’ve made a chalkboard to write down need groceries for the upcoming trip to the store. Filing cabinets are also a major help with all those formal documents we have to keep up with. Lastly, post-its!!!!!!!! Always have a bunch of post-its

  6. My favorite way to stay organized is daily lists kept in pretty notebooks. 🙂

  7. I love your style, it’s so clean and classic. I keep organized with endless post it notes, because they’re so messy that it makes me want to finish asap.

  8. I love writing everything down. Whether it’s a journal, planner or on a memo pad. I love the Day Designer!

  9. As far as appointments, I have a small calendar that I use to stay organized. I make lists for other things.

  10. I try to make a list of activities and follow it! but it is difficult to organize and that can accomplish everything planned, Greetings

  11. I have lists. Too many lists. But that is how I stay organized with 3 kids, being a full time student, partner, and trying to stay sane.
