Behind the scenes….My Office.
This is where I spend most of my time….well, not strictly true, it’s mostly when I am having a mass tidy up. Throughout the month I pile post and documents up on the desk. When I get the opportunity comes I launch myself into it. Any other time it’s on the sofa with my laptop.
Here’s a sneak peak of where the admin magic happens…sometimes.
I have so many little bits and bobs on my desk some people may call them “dust collectors”, Mark calls it “Tat”,. I am a super minimalist person….in my mind. I like my little things and yes they all do have a use.
Laptop & Laptop Sleeve
My most important tool for me and my business. My virtual world is looked after by my new laptop sleeve from Greatness Reinvented. This plush sleeve has a faux fur inner which is super soft, it protects my macbook on the go in my backpack either when in my hand or on my office desk when not in use. The bright coral outer sleeve is such a beautiful colour and stands out when I am sat in a dreary boardroom in a meeting, it makes me smile. Greatness Reinvented have so many other beautiful products including 100’s of patterned phone cases and t-shirts. Click here for more details.
My office desk chair tends to house coats and hats which is super annoying because when it comes to clearing up its like peeling an onion. Layer after layer of coats piled on one another. However, this chair is very comfortable when I can sit it on it coat free. I wheel around on it to get from one end of the desk to the other. It has lumbar support which is great.
Scratch-off Map of the world
Finally the framed map of the world has made it up on the wall. It’s been on a shelf in the hall for sometime and this month Mark showed off his DIY skills…wait for it….using a hammer. I’ve never seen this side to him before. Move over 3M stick on wall hangers…Mark is using his hammer. What a dreamboat.
We haven’t scratched much off really but It’s a lovely focal point and reminds me if I work harder I’ll scratch off more places in the future.
A few items from my range are here so I can refer to them when needed and also if I need to send something out quickly it can be done from home. If I can’t, I’ll request if from the office in London. I do like to use them to take promotional snaps from home so I also have a variety of items for that reason.
This trolley and basket very similar to the trolley was given to me from Mark which I thought was very sweet. I like them because they are different. Bought from a shop called Tiger you can get all sorts of weird and wonderful things in there. I also have certain pens I use for certain tasks. The pens I use specifically to write in cards and love notes…I haven’t written a love note in a while, I’ll need to do that! I love using a certain pen in my diary so then the ink doesn’t go through the pages too. It’s a gel pen and it’s gold.
Generally, I am an organised person but of late especially over Christmas and New Year it’s just been a bit chaotic. I am back to my normal self getting all my ducks in a row. This is now my calm space to clear my mind of all the things to do.
