Desk tour/organisation

Wednesday, 15 April 2015


So this is an overview of my desk area. I wanted to write this post to show how I organise this space and perhaps give some inspiration to how you could organise yours - I am also very nosy and I know that I love reading posts like this! 


Ages ago, I wrote a post on how to stay organised and this planner was included in it; I still use it every week! It's so useful to put down what you want to do each day and tick it off when you have done that particular thing. If you are wondering, this planner is from Paperchase but I'm sure you can find similar things in quite a few stationary shops. On top of the planner, I usually keep my phone if I am sitting at my desk. To the right of that I have my pink post-it-notes. I love these as they are colourful and really handy if you want to just quickly jot something down! 


Behind my planner is a pile of books. These three books are some of my favourites, I have: The Fault in our Stars, Love Tanya and the Lauren Conrad Beauty book. I just thought that they looked nice stacked on top of each other and on top of them I have a candle stick from Ikea and a candle from Primark. This candle smells so nice, it is the Sweet Vanilla and Coconut one! To the left of this pile, I have a bird cage lamp which I don't actually have plugged in so it is more for decoration than anything else. The piece of furniture to the right is my chest of drawers/getting ready area. I can do a tour of that if you want as well. 


On to the other side of my desk. I keep my laptop which is a Macbook air on top of a stand which is from Ikea. Covering the stand, is a place mat and I thought it looked quite nice as it is more interesting than the just plain black design of the stand. I then have my lamp from John Lewis, it is quite cool as it doesn't have a switch you just have to tap the metal parts to turn it on. There are also three settings of brightness - I don't know why but I am very amused by this! Slightly in front of that, I keep my iMini which I mainly just use for the radio. Finally, the last item actually on my desk is my glasses case for when I am working. 


This hanging container is from Ikea and I store most of my stationary in there! In the left hand pot I keep my pens/pencils/glue stick/sharpies/highlighters and the right hand pot stores my colouring pens which in truth I hardly ever use. Between these pots are some random containers with DIY bits and bobs and some rubbers. I think I also have my umbrella case in there, I'm not too sure why, I'll probably move it after writing this! The picture below is a more birds eye view of the hanging container.



I only have one drawer in this desk in which I keep quite random stuff that doesn't really have a place on top. Mainly, there are notebooks but I also have: a pink calculator, some watercolours, a maths set, gel pens and at the back some stamps. 

I hope this post was somewhat helpful and, as I mentioned previously, if you want my to do a chest of drawers/getting ready area tour, I can do!
