Where I Blog

Thursday, March 28, 2013

So I thought I would do something a little different today. I've never actually shown a lot of people where I blog and where I get the most of my inspiration for my posts. It's something that I've wanted to do for awhile as I think it's fun to see where people use their creativity and imagination on what they talk about. Like I've said in few other posts, I'm still living at home with my parents but they've given me the top floor of the house. It's essentially cut off from everything that happens on the floor below, and so it's really helpful for when I'm trying to put posts together and to actually get inspired. I've had this desk for as long as I can remember, but it's essentially just a long table so I can keep a lot of stuff on it. Pardon if some of the images are a little blurry, had to use my iPhone.

I always try to keep my planner right by my computer so I can have a constant reminder of when I'm going to put a blog up, and for when things are due for school. I'm really obsessed with fashion illustrations, as you can see, so I gotta give credit to Inslee for the gorgeous monthly calendar and to Erisha Ann for my computer wallpaper. xoxo
 
 
Thought I would do a close up of these few things. I'm obviously obsessed with New York and I got this mug from a Starbucks there last summer. It's perfect for holding utensils, and once I actually get a coffee maker for my home, I will use it in the proper way. I also am particularly in love with the tiny three-leaf clover cup that I received from my late grandmother. It just holds a special place in my heart since I'm in love with all things Irish.
 
This bulletin board is right off my desk and plays an important role in hanging inspiration images from my favorite magazines, and my necklaces. These images also spill into the wall that is behind my desk, and is currently gorgeous with images of Keira Knightley! I also did a little D.I.Y. by taking the wrapping paper I received from Bettie Paige Clothing and upholstering it to the back of the board. Just to add something more eye catching.
 
Every girl needs a good read! So for April I'm looking forward to catching up on some new fashion trends and good gossip. I always love having these close by so if I ever get bored, I can just flip through the pages and get inspired. Then I also really love the document holder I got from Barnes and Noble for all my papers and various things.
 
I just have to mention my favorite photograph with my nephew. He is my absolute favorite and I treasure every moment with him. So happy for my sister and brother-in-law in how they've created their little family. Hope to have my own one day. But anyways, I guess you can also see I'm a little obsessed with flowers. I just got this free Kate Spade sample and it smells AMAZING! I highly recommend checking the link above to get yours. Then the purple/green flower holder is really special to me, as I was given it to me on my birthday a few years ago from a customer I met when I worked at Caribou Coffee. She just recently passed away but I will most likely always keep this and remember what an amazing and inspiring person she was.
 
Well, there it is! A little sneak peek into where I spend most of my time everyday. I try to keep it as organized as possible and make it into a comfortable and inspiring place. Though I really cannot wait until I can have something even bigger!
 
Have a great weekend!
 
Always,
Mostly Lisa

  6. This is such a gorgeous working space. I quite like my desk too, but it's filled with a lot more work related things and a lot fewer blog related things.

    1. Thanks so much! I try to keep it organized as much as possible, but sometimes it gets so cluttered. I think once I get job where I actually will have stuff to bring home, it's going to exactly like that. For now, it'll be school and blog related. :D
