#EtsyDeskie

A few weeks ago an Etsy newsletter dropped into my inbox and it piqued my interest as it was all about desk decor - you can see the Etsy desk edit here

It piques my interest as I was about to move offices and thus desks and I got to thinking about what my dream desk would be adorned with.

I started along the lines of something very modern and minimalist and then I went completely the other way and was dreaming of vintage lamps and rolodex's and finally taking inspiration from the hundreds of favourites I have saved over the years that it would really need to be a kitschy bright affair to make me smile everyday.

I hope in time I will be able to add a few of the below to my desk....

This cuckoo clock (1) has been in my favourites for ages. If I could see this on the wall over my desk if would just make me smile.

Its the same with the prints - There are days when I am sure considering the quote (2) could put things in perspective and the Dali print (11) would just inspire my creativity.

 We are a bit dinosaur mad in our house and having a desk plant (3) is very good for you I hear so it being in a dinosaur is just an added bonus. And having a(nother) pot  (14) to be filled with paper clips (or more likely sweet treats) can never be a bad thing.

My absolute favourite though has to be the Edward Scissorhands (8)  Articulated Wooden Figure. In my head I imagine coming in every day to find someone has moved him and put him in a new pose and I then spend hours trying to figure out who is doing it and what it means. In all reality if I had one and this did happen it would be the cleaner accidentally knocking it as he dusted but that's not quite as exciting. 

If you have any Etsy favourites or posts on your desk decor please do share.

February 2016 Favourites

Feb Fav's



First Aid kit - My new favourite artists, A Swedish indie folk duo that have an air of Stevie Nicks about them. 

Les Mills on Demand - My favourite way to exercise until I build up the confidence to go to a Body Pump class at the gym. 

Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil - I didnt quite appreicate this until i ran out. The best face oil i have tried in a long time (even better than Sunday Riley Flora and Luna. Im waiting for a GWP to stock up.


Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - I love found photos and the way they are built into the story is so unique. Im now on book 3 and slightly dissappointed to be nearing the end of the story. At least theres only a 6 month wait until the film though !! 



Nalgene Wide Mouth Everyday Tritan Bottle - This has made it easy to up my water intake to at least 3L a day.

Intensely Butter Mint Tea - just delicious !!

Jools Bubble Tea -  I have given up fizzy drinks for Lent (and hopefully for good) but I wanted something sweet and healthy ish to replace them and these are doing the job (if i can find any in the fridge as my daughter also has a taste for them).

Invisibobble - These are a god send. My hair is getting longer and more time consuming to dry so I love nothing more than slathering on some hair oil and putting it in a fun bun (post to come) and these are the best bands to keep my hair up. I cant wait to get my hands on the power version for when I am exercising.

House of GlamDolls GlamBlush Wheel - I have a somewhat heavy hand when it comes to blush so these creams which blend seamlessly with my foundation have become my new best friend. 

What are your favourites this month ??
