Hi Guys! My posts have been a bit sporadic this week-I’ve had a lot on my mind and have been focusing on organizing my life a bit, consequently, my blog has taken a back seat. I’m a firm believer that you should break away from anything that you love if you are feeling overwhelmed or pressured…I love blogging and don’t like to blog when I’m not “feeling it”. Why add stress to my stress reliever? That being said I just needed to ease up on my schedule this week, nothing major is happening (not yet anyway)!
Between job hunting and setting up the office portion of my “walk in closet” I’ve been crushing on pretty desk accessories like crazy. I’m like the Bachelorette of office supplies, I want them all and I want them all NOW. Cubicles are often dull and gray but that doesn’t mean your life (or work ethic) has to be! Channel your inner “Whistle While You Work” mentality and spruce up your desk or office with these chic and feminine office supplies.
1. Life Planner via Erin Condren
I just ordered a metallic turquoise life planner and I am anxiously awaiting its arrival. It matches the wallpaper in my office…can it even get more perfect?!
2. Pink Filing Cabinet via Home Depot
(or Pink File sorter via Poppin)
The perfect storage solutions whether you have stacks and stacks of documents to store or just a few important key pieces to file away. Boring tasks like filing become chic in vivid color!
3. Scalloped Desk Organizer via Design Darling
A cute way to store your post-its, memos, pens and other little desk trinkets.
4. Get it sorted File Folders via Ban.do
When Ban.do released their new office line I immediately ordered a few sets of folders to help me stay organized. I have a lot of mini-projects in the works and for the first time in my life file folders seemed like a total necessity.
5. Bow Pushpins via Kate Spade
Does anyone else feel giddy dreaming about decorating their bulletin board? I try and update mine frequently to keep me feeling creative and inspired. These girly pushpins are so much better than the typical tacks you find at Staples.
6. What Would Blair Waldorf Do? Pencils via Etsy
If these pencils will remind me to channel my inner Queen B in the face of adversity they are a desktop necessity! First give me Blair’s confidence then pass along her headband collection (and Dorota).
7. Large Polka Dot Notebook via Sugar Paper
Because when you write as many notes to yourself and crazy color coded lists as I do…you can never have enough pretty notebooks.
8. Nesting Boxes via Kate Spade
To stuff away unsightly papers, old photos, extra office supplies, all of your fan mail and love letters…typical office clutter (:
9. Pink Storage Box via Ikea (Under $5!!!)
I have these on my bookcase in the living room to hide all of the random clutter that we “NEED” but don’t want to stare at. To be honest I don’t even know what is in them…it must be Jordan’s stuff?
10. Monogrammed Acrylic Pencil Cup via Design Darling
We all have pens, so why not treat yourself with an easy and decorative desktop pencil cup?
Do you have any suggestions for shops to buy cute office supplies from? I went a little crazy at a local stationary shop last week. I’m officially on probation from cute paper goods but that doesn’t mean I can’t day dream about supplies for the day I have a little extra money in the bank just begging to be splurged on sparkly pencils and floral notebooks (;
