Blogger Series: Desk Tour

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.

Diptyque | Tweezerman | Prada | Glamglow

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.

I may be partial, but I love hanging our designs up in my workspace. Obviously I designed them so they work with my aesthetic, but it just makes me so happy to see them on my wall! For the time being, our designs can be purchased in our Etsy shop. Our boutique is still set to launch at the end of the month, but we have all of our new designs available for sale in our Etsy shop as well.

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.

Because I love all of you so much, I decided to give away a Day Designer for Target bundle! The winner will receive (3) Day Designer planners. You can keep them all for yourself, or spread the love and help other women in your life get organized. It’s the perfect time to start getting organized especially since I know a lot of my readers are going back to school, or getting their children ready to go back to school! Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. The more “tasks” you complete below, the more entries you will receive towards the giveaway. The giveaway is open internationally and the winner will receive (1) 5×8 Floral Cover Weekly Monthly Planner, (1) 6×8 Gold & White Weekly Monthly Planner, and (1) 8×10 Pink Weekly Monthly Planner. Good luck!

  • Yessiena Fugate Chavez

    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
