Heyyy Beautiful People,
In this post, I’m showing you my desk and how it is set up. I’m the type of person to keep things simple and organised. Seriously… If my working space is messy, I have to clean it up in order to start let alone complete my work. I’m not even kidding! My friends know me well so when they call, they don’t ask what I’m doing. Instead they say, “Ela, are you still organising your stuff, I swear you was cleaning yesterday too!” On the other hand, my mum goes, ” If only you cleaned the house the way you do your room then there will be no mess to clean up.” I’m not even exaggerating. Anyways, enough of me rambling and let’s get started….
This is an overview of my desk. Now something I think you all will be wondering (and may know) is where my chair is from and the answer to that is…IKEA! I call it the ghost chair, it’s very comfy and stable.
Now, let’s move on to what is on my desk…
The first thing that I always keep on there is my imac. In no way am I trying to brag about what I have! In fact, this was a treat for me as from the age of 12 till about three years ago (at the age of 17) I didn’t have a computer, I used to stay at the library and go to my friend’s house to use the computer and printer. So, I was grateful for my parents when they gifted me this, it helped me a lot.
My laptop is also what I keep on my desk, but not all the time. When I write-up a coursework, my internet clusters up with loads of tabs and this not only confuses me but I find it difficult to keep up with the websites I’m looking at so I use two screens and minimise the amount of tabs I use by splitting them up. But as I said it is not always on my desk. I take my laptop to my university all the time as that is what I keep my notes on.
I also have marble sticky notes, for those who are wondering I purchased them from Primark… For the girls that have an addiction to marble! It’s okay!
If you’re wondering what’s on my screen (little bit of self promotion lol) it is my latest posts on TheWhiteRose.ela to check them out click the link Latest Blog Posts and scroll down….
In this corner of my desk I have my two notebooks, I love, notebooks and as you may know I love marble ( I guess it’s obvious since 90% of my things are marble) and I enjoy writing to-do lists and notes to keep me organised. I have a candle which is from T.K. MAXX it’s called T.J. MAXX in America, I know, I was confused too! I also have a plant that I bought from Urban Outfitters, it’s very refreshing and creates a calm and peaceful atmosphere, I definitely recommend keeping plants in your work space! The open notebook is there for visual purposes, I keep that one in my bag.
This is my first drawer (the one on the left) as I said I like keeping things simple. In this drawer, I keep my USB SuperDrive as both my computer and laptop do not have cd slots. I also keep my old iPhone which is in its pink case, I sometimes need it for photos, apps and information that I haven’t transferred to my new phone. In the see through little box with polka dots, I keep my pain killers, its compact and makes my desk look tidy. The last three items is a small grey notebook, (I told you I love them), my reading glasses and my go to pencil case, that I use all the time… You’ll see why I said that in a moment. That is it for the first drawer, let’s move on to the second one.
If you thought my first drawer was empty then this one you’ll find is emptier. I went on holiday and bought a sea shell, it was too pretty and I keep it in my drawer, I don’t know why… It looks pretty and matches my pencil cases. Talking about pencil cases, you may have realised that I have a couple… Why? Because, I have loads of pens and pencils, I try to keep them tidy and separate. For example, in the marble (YES marble…again) case I keep my coloured gel pens. Whereas, in my Ted Baker one I keep felt tip pens. I’m a very visual person so my notes are always colour coded! If you ever look at my notes, you’ll understand what I mean….
