Pen Heaven competition: My workstation photo entry | Lifestyle

A few months back I treated myself to a desk. Now I know this isn't a 'proper' treat but when it comes to organisation, blogging and University work I felt now was the time to sit properly at a desk, and have everything around me that I needed. Since having Dexter I've found it hard to really get back into being organised and having stability for work time however, now he sleeps from 7pm and has two solid hour naps a day, I'm able to sit at my desk and work.

I have my laptop in the middle, usually this is the divider as I have my blogging work on one side and University work on the other. This means that I can keep everything separated, organised and can find things quickly when I need to. My desk also operates as my craft workstation too so I have to make sure I have everything I need around me at all times. Although my workstation is messy, it's organised chaos to me. I like everything bright and kept in it's place too. Also, I like to have inspirational quotes and artwork on the walls to brighten up my workstation too.

For blogging, I like to keep everything in a personal organiser. At the moment I have three Filofax personal organiser. I know that may seem a little strange however, one is to keep all my personal diary dates in and is small enough to fit into my handbag, the 'personal' sized organiser is where I keep all my blog information such as contacts, sponsors, blog income, etc, and the last being my A5 organiser which I use for University which keeps all my notes, reading lists, library information, course content, etc.

For all my blogging notes and ideas, I like to keep these handy in a notebook as there is plenty more space to write. The fabulous folks over at Pen Heaven sent me this beautiful gold notebook embossed with my name, and a matching pen for my collection. There is plenty of room to write my ideas down in my notebook, and it's the perfect size to carry around with me should I have any ideas on the go.

I'd love to know what your blogging workstation looks like, and so would Pen Heaven. They are currently running a competition to see blogger's workstations, and you can enter too. The details are here. You'll see plenty more stationery blog posts over the next coming weeks in the run up to National Stationery Week at the end of the month.

  1. I wish I could say that I have a blogging workstation, I tend to do most of my blogging sat on the sofa in front of the TV! I love your desk set up and divide between work and blogging.

  3. Ooh that looks lovely, I love a tidy organised space to work from, and pretty things do help to inspire me too! That being said, my workstation at home for blogging is my sofa and my lap, I don't have a desk! Maybe one day... xx
