As someone who is an organization dork and planner freak, I love seeing people’s workspaces. Office Depot and Staples, or even the office section in Target make me very happy! I love pens, pencils, notebooks, paper clips, folders, sticky notes, I love it all!
Over the last few years, I’ve been using one large desk for doing my makeup and hair, and as a laptop station. It was incredibly inconvenient!!! A few weeks back I went to Ikea and discovered a great, inexpensive way to have 2 separate spaces for beauty things and work things.
I purchased a white table top for $7.99 and 4 table legs for $12. I simple screwed the legs into the tabletop and viola, work desk!
I am obsessed with this desk. It’s small compared to what I had but that forces me to keep everything tidy and looks a lot more put together without makeup all over the place. The only downside is there is no storage and I’m still working on find something that works for me.
So, without further ado, here is a closer look at my blogging space. I loving having this mirror behind the desk. It’s a great place to put pictures and gives me something to look at instead of the boring wall. I always have a candle burning and today I have one of my all time favorite Bath & Body Works candles, Peach Bellini lit. It’s smells heavenly!
To the left of my laptop I have some sticky notes and my planner. I keep a few pens out if I need to add something but keep the majority with the rest of my planner supplies. I also keep a jar of colored pencils for coloring or doodling. Next to the colored pencils, I have another candle and a small bowl of paper clips.
On the right side of my laptop, I have an additional notepad and my lamp, along with another candle. I told you I loved candles!
I find this space incredibly relaxing and inspiring. Let me know your favorite places to blog in the comments below.
