de cluttering my desk space...

mydesk

I've been really trying recently to keep my desk area minimal and as de cluttered as possible. I find it a lot easier to work when I'm not surrounded by mountains of stuff, aka junk. I know some people don't like fake flowers but I think these ones from Home Bargains (with the glass vase too) are quite nice! 
panda pencil sharpener
I bought this little guy from Tesco. Yeah, sure I could have bought a plain pencil sharpener but why? When I can have this cute little guy sat on my desk. I think there was a cat version and a lion one available too, I know for a fact some of you will be tempted by the cat one. Besides, life is too short to not have cute / tacky / over the top everyday life things…right? That's my excuse anyways.

I've posted about these cute pens before, I also bought these from Home Bargains (God, I love that shop, if you couldn't already tell) Some of you commented that they look quite Cath Kidston-esque, which they do! A pack of three pretty patterned, pens for 50p, perfect.

p.s In case anyone was wondering I found the August 2014 gold polka dot wallpaper  here

  19. Looks lovely- nice and calm for working at. The pencil sharpener is very cute! And I think the flowers look pretty too- I'm very much of the opinion that fake flowers look better than dead real ones haha!

  29. This has to be the cutest pencil sharpener I have ever seen!

    I really need to declutter my desk, there is so much junk on it at the moment that I really can't work on it properly. Hopefully your post will motivate me to give it a bit of a freshen up!

  31. Such pretty stuff, I love those fake flowers and that vase! The pencil sharpener is just so cute as well. Also, I hope this doesn't come across negatively I only mean it as the most gentle suggestion for consideration, but have you considered not centring your blog text & left-aligning it instead? I know a lot of people do it, but it makes it harder for people with concentration/learning difficulties etc. to read :(

  32. Looking at beautiful desk spaces is one of my favourite things to do, so this post brightened up my morning! You're right though, life is too short to not have a panda sharpener.

  48. The panda pencil sharpener is sooo cute, and it's really clever of you to set your desktop picture to a calendar--that way you don't even need to place a calendar on your desk! I definitely agree with you that working at an uncluttered desk helps with productivity. - Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
