What's on my Desk?


Some people might see a desk as a flat space to dump your laptop on and sit down occasionally to do some 'work'. But I see my desk as quite a personal space. It's MY desk. When I was at university I didn't have a room at home, therefore, no desk. And it was at that time in my life when I most needed a desk! So, now I'm back home with a room of my own, a desk means more than just a wooden table to me.

First and foremost, the most important object that I keep on my desk is my laptop. I use my laptop for EVERYTHING. Blogging, social networking, online shopping... having it as my primary gadget on my desk makes perfect sense. I usually keep my laptop tucked away safe in my laptop sleeve to keep it from getting dusty or scratched. I bought this cute number from Amazon. 


I have an array of notepads. I'm a sucker for pretty things and I have too many notepads that I never use... so I'm keeping two on my desk at all times so I can hopefully start to use my ever growing store of neglected notepads. I also have a floral note holder which is useful for jotting down lists and memos.



And then I have my little tray of things... that's the only way to describe it! I have a pen pot with some pretty pens, a lip balm (essential!) some moisturiser which I use as hand cream and a tiny pot which has a collection of my favourite earrings in.


There are then the personal touches. I have a picture of me and my boyfriend which he got me as a present a few years ago. A lovely scrap book which was gifted to me by one of my best friends for my 21st. Such a gorgeous, personal present full of fabulous and funny pictures of the past. There is a card which my mum hand drew for my 21st birthday from one of my favourite books from my childhood :)


And nothing completes a a homely desk than a lovely cup of tea. mmm...


And of course, in the summer, I will spruce up the mood with a vase of hand picked flowers. Nothing quite beats it! It's not just aesthetically pleasing but smells amazing too; especially since my favourite flowers are roses :)
