The Desk

DSCN0202

For some reason, both at work and at home, I have to have cute accessories on my desk. I mean, having a desk job is boring enough with being forced to use blue and black ink pens and square yellow post-its all day every day. Inserting a bit of you and your personality to your work space, whether at home or at work, is one key to getting things done. I know what you all are thinking…I am too old for pink heart post-its and Hello Kitty journals, right? What about no! Girly things make me happy. I like writing with mint green pens, customizing my stationary, and buying girly-looking journals…Although you may not be into that sort of thing, you should find your own way to insert who you are into your office space.

Sometime ago, my mother bought me this paperweight by Annie Lee and I am still in love with it.  This is sooooo me! Passed out on the couch amongst shopping bags (Maxed Out is what it’s called). How appropriate?! Lol…Trust, that I don’t max out my credit cards (anymore…Lol), but I used to have the tendency to shop until I dropped back in the day.

As you all know I have an inspiration board sitting on my desk as well (although I need to update it with my spring/summer inspiration). I even find that displaying my Pinterest boards while I am blogging, or trying to come up with ideas, is very helpful. Organization is also a large part of being successful. Keeping a calendar and developing a plan, month by month, of what you need to get done is incredibly helpful. I have recently started keeping a blogging calendar on my desk so that I know which days I am supposed to be writing, scheduling posts, and publishing (my current goal is at least two posts per week). But I can’t take all the credit for this idea. LaToya from Something Blue Weddings DC actually inspired me to keep this sort of calendar.

As I mentioned in my book post here, I am obsessed with books! Whether they are spiritually motivating or just fashionably fun, I always have books on my desk. I have books on any and every topic that interests me sitting on my desk so that I can quickly access them. The books below are ones that I reach for often.

One last thing that isn’t normally on my desk, but is currently fun to look at are my graduation announcements. Graduating from Georgetown with my Masters degree is one of my greatest accomplishments, and basking in the notion that I did it (with God’s help, of course) has made me realize that the things that are worth having in life aren’t always easy to obtain. Sometimes, you have to want things so badly that you just refuse to give up…So go after what you want because you may be very surprised at the outcome.

How do you keep your desk organized/interesting? Am I the only one who likes post-its that are made into various shapes?

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Talk to you soon!

Journals & Things…

IMG_4255

At the beginning of every new year, I buy a new journal and a new calendar. So last week my Mom (hey Wanda!) and I went to Barnes and Noble and found some calendars for 50% off. So I grabbed the turquoise one pictured above, which has both the monthly and daily calendars in it. I don’t like my personal calendar to be too big or too small, so I thought this one was a nice balance. Can’t beat that for $7.50!

Luckily, a few of my girlfriends bought me journals for my birthday last year so I didn’t have to go out and buy any. I’m glad that I’ve finally finished writing in my peacock journal (finished on Saturday), and I am trying to decide between these other two journals. Both have messages that resonate with me and are quite symbolic considering that it is a new year and I am embarking upon a new journey. A new beginning in addition to believing that any and everything is possible are both messages that I plan to take with me throughout the year…

This particular journal is super cute because it has the most adorable messages throughout. Every couple of pages has a cute little quote…While I love fashion, my first love is writing. Journaling has really helped me to not only record my growth as an individual but it has also helped me to express my emotions in a positive way.

Okay, so which journal do you guys think I should start writing in first? Do you keep a journal?

I hope you all enjoyed this post…xoxo
