I am SO desperately in need of my own work space. As you probably already know I am still currently living at my folks place since I just finished school and started my career. So I don’t have an option of changing an entire room into an office. Unfortunately that means I am stuck with turning my bedroom into a bedroom and an office. And that almost makes me not want to do it but I figure I will be living here at least until the end of the year so I might as well do it! I need a space where I can work when I work from home and blog in my spare time.
I find it hard to get inspiration when I don’t have a comfortable work space that can spark up some ideas. I have been looking on Pinterest for some home office suggestions that I can use in my space. I settled on using a lot of white, which will go nicely with my light grey walls. I also want to put something on my wall above my desk, something that will help with brain storming ideas. Here are some inspirational pictures I got off of Pinterest. I will be starting my work space this weekend so hopefully I will be done soon so you can show how it turns out!
The time is seriously just flying by – Christmas is ONE week away!
I plan on attempting to finish up my shopping this weekend. The only people I have left to shop for are the 2 most important men in my life – my dad and fiance. I know the malls are going to be crazy busy so wish me luck!
A couple weeks back I put up all our holiday decorations and only just recently put up our tree. I quickly snapped a few shots of the various decor pieces we have around our condo during the holiday season!
(Most pieces were purchased last year from Chapters, Canadian Tire, Home Sense & the dollar store!)
Every year my dad gives us a Lindt advent calendar so today I got to enjoy the first of many delicious chocolates! Also, my fiance and I decided that we’d wait until the first of the month to put up our Christmas decorations. He’s currently out of town though so I went ahead and put up our few decorations myself, minus the tree. I want to wait for him to get home so we can at least put the tree up together, even though it doesn’t take much time.
I was eager to put up our decorations though because I couldn’t remember what we’d purchased last year (it was our first Christmas together in our place) and wanted to buy more. I should’ve known better than looking at what new pieces stores had to offer this year, I always get tempted. Sure enough after setting everything up, I want more. Our colour scheme is gold, silver, red & white and I feel that certain spots need more of certain colours. Therefore I plan on hitting up a couple stores this weekend to purchase just a couple new decorations!
