I’m slowly, but surely beginning to catch up with blogging! Soon, I’ll be back to just two posts a week; one on Monday and one of Friday. Then, in September, things are going to change a little but don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere! Anyway, I thought for this post I’d show you a tour of my little working space, a.k.a where all the magic happens! Yes, that’s blogging magic and college magic!
If you’d like to see some elements in more detail, I’d advise you to check out my Desk Tour video I did on my newly revamped YouTube channel. It’s on the channel previously known as Jess Louise. I’ve changed it to JessStudies as I feel that it is much more fitting to the channel. Here is the video: Desk Tour Video. (And HERE’s a link to the channel)
This is my desk! It’s from Ikea and it isn’t that THAT big so that’s why I have a little extension on the side! It technically doesn’t match the other furniture in my room but it looks like it does!
This is on the very left-hand side of my desk, on the floor, and it’s a bit of a mess at the moment! In this box I keep my files, papers that I need to file and my college bag when I’m not using it! I’m not entirely sure where the box is from but you can get them in HobbyCraft. Most of the files are from WHSmith, except the back one which is from Sainsbury’s! I got my college bag off of Amazon and the labels on my files I made using my HP Sprocket!
Desk: Left-Hand Side
On the very end of my desk I keep two coasters, one for me and one for a friend and my pencil cases so that I can get to them easily! One pencil case is from SuperDry and the other is from WHSmith! Under the shelf unit, I tend to keep my HP Sprocket, my Ted Baker spray, a spare inhaler and a couple of Starbucks cups that double as pen pots! I bought some new colouring pencils since these pictures were taken so I now have three cups there! In the cups I keep random pieces of stationery that I use quite a lot!
On the first shelf I keep some Sellotape, a stapler, a hole punch, a pot of bulldog clips, some marble post-it notes, some arrow post-it notes and some sticky tabs! I’m not entirely sure where the tape, the stapler or the hole punch is from, but I think these are quite easily available from Ryman, WHSmith, Staples or Office Outlet. The clips are from Sainsbury’s Home range, the arrow post-its are from Amazon and the marble post-its and tabs are from WHSmith!
On the top shelf, I keep my cactus, named Bill, which I got from my local garden centre along with my camera memory cards and adaptors and a desk vacuum! The desk vac is very useful when I’m bullet journalling as I can use it to sweep away my rubbings! I got it for Christmas but I’m not sure where it’s from!
Top of Desk
On the very top of my desk, I like to keep a box of tissues (which has now just run out!) and I like to have a reed diffuser (from Sainsbury’s I think) there so that it smells nice! It also looks nice, so win-win! Up there, I additionally have a couple of Bath & Body Works Pocketbacs because I love them so much! The green one is Juicy Watermelon and the red one is Japanese Cherry Blossom! Next to that I have a small tea light, but I tend not to light it because I have a nice Yankee Candle and a nice one that my Grandma got me from Sainsbury’s, which I prefer to light because they’re slightly saver and smell SOOOOOOOO nice! I got the big J from a shop on Southwold Pier, but I’ve seen them in other places and I got the cute lil hat on a bottle of Innocent smoothie!
On the wall, I have the signs that my friend, Alicia, bought for me. I’m pretty sure they’re from Homebase, but don’t quote me on that! The prints are just off of the internet, I used washi tape to frame them! That cat in the corner is my calendar, my mum bought it for me either just before or for Christmas and I think it is from the Calendar Club!
In the centre of my desk I have a textbook holder which I got from Amazon! The sticker on the side next to it is the Grey’s Anatomy logo! Most of the prints are from Dot Creates‘ site except the Pumpkin Spice one which I got from a Treatbox from Treatbox UK. At the right hand side I have my college timetable! I will be putting a new one there in about a month!
Desk: Right Hand Side
On the very right hand side of my desk I keep several things! Firstly, there is my bullet journal which I won in a giveaway from Leaf Graph Paper on Instagram, and I love it! I’m not even afraid to admit that it is totally Grey’s Anatomy themed! Next I have my Psychology, Chemistry and Biology textbooks, along with my stethoscope which I absolutely love! It’s white and rose gold; you can see it in the desk tour video! Then, I have my diary, my to do list pad and my blog planner and these are really useful to have on my desk! I now also have my new Anatomy Colouring Book there too!!
Next to my desk I have a small table where I keep a few extra things. I have two Starbucks cups with highlighters and brush pens in! Most of the highlighters are Zebra Mildliners which I bought from Amazon, and I have a few Stabilo Swing Cool highlighters too from WHSmith! I then have two Zoella Beauty bags from Superdrug! In one I have Sharpies which I got from Tesco and in the other I have Crayola Supertips which I also got from Tesco!
In the letter tray, I have my Sainsbury’s home weekly planner, my Whitelines notebooks from Amazon, a library book and several important papers!
At the back I keep my medals! I have four from gymnastics competitions, three from the Color Obstacle Rush, another gymnastics one for completing my badges and a few swimming ones!
Desk Drawers and Cupboard
I have two drawers and a cupboard in my desk. Let’s start with the big drawer! In this drawer I mainly have various stationery items, double sided tape and stickers! Then, in the small drawer I have my spare Muji gel pens (from Muji), my flashcards (from Amazon and Sainsbury’s) and my flashcard boxes from Amazon! In the cupboard I have my subject notebooks on the top shelf which are Pukka Pads from Ryman. On the middle shelf I have some spare photographs from photography, a mouse mat and some sticky labels and on the bottom shelf I mainly have plastic wallets and folders!
Under the Desk
Under my desk I keep my photography sketchbook, my trimmer/guillotine, my HP laptop bag from Argos, spare plain paper and spare carrier bags and also my bin. Occasionally you’ll see a cat under there too!
I know it’s super long, but I hope you enjoyed my Desk Tour! I’ve included some links to websites or b’og posts so you can find out more information if you like! Don’t hesitate to ask any questions!
