The time has finally come when I’ve going to be showing you around my work station/ desk / blogging space. It’s really a place for a little bit of everything.
Back in March to April time, as I was just beginning to really start revising properly for my GCSE exams, I decided that I really needed to get a desk and a work space, in order for me to be able to organise all of my revision, homework and also a base to write all my blog posts from. After only a short time of actually seriously thinking about getting a desk, my mum saw this gorgeous kidney shaped, white, glass topped desk in a local charity shop. Within a couple of days we went back to go and have a good look at it, and I instantly fell in love with it. It’s so modern, chic, simple and just so me. But what made it even better, was that it was a bargain at only £30.
What I love about this desk is how everything about it is so perfect for what I wanted it for. It provides a desk and work space that has plenty of room for not only my a-level work, but also all my blogging notebooks and fashion books; an amazing background for all of my blog photos, and the versatility of it being able to go with anything anywhere, and can fit in with any design theme that I decide to go with. The only thing that’s a real downfall, has to be how big it is, and how as it’s kidney shaped it’s a really awkward thing to move around, so I had to be careful when deciding where I wanted it to go.
These two little area’s of my desk above, have to be some of my favourite design wise. I love how I’m able to display all my fashion related books, so I can always admire them and I can easily just grab one and have a little read to gain some inspiration. And, what makes that even better is the gorgeous white, pug book ends that hold all the books up and add to my ever evolving desk design. Also, I adore these cute, little, patterned set of draws, that create another dimension to my desk design and provides a storage for a few things and also a display for my fake flowers and a lovely perfume bottle.
However, the part of my desk that I love the most, has to be my quote door, where I’ve got around half a dozen of my favourite quotes. There’s one’s that I’ve bought myself and one’s from my friends and family, and they all provide me with motivation and inspiration when I’m hard at work with this blog or with school work. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while then you’ll know I’m a pure and utter quote freak, and love them to death; so I’m so glad that I’ve got this part of my desk, as I feel like it just really reflects me as a person.
