Another year, another way to keep stylish and organized. I love to purchase a few new desk accessories with the beginning of the new year. It’s such a great motivator and pick-me-up.
Being organized is such a huge key to success for me! Without planners, lists, and a place to keep things I use everyday, it would be straight chaotic up in here!
Your workspace, no matter how big or small, should be an inspiring place. Chic office accessories make all the difference. If you have to spend a lot time there, it might as well put you in a good mood, right?
Here are my favorite office accessories of 2015. All of them are on my desk and keeping me chic and organized for another blogging year.

This year, I embraced flower power and wanted the wall over my desk to be full of happy vibes. I adore this Peony Bouquet Print for its colors and peonies are one of my favorite flowers.
Gold and acrylic office accessories are still a favorite around here. I indulged in my love of Kate Spade with this Kate Spade New York Acrylic Pencil Cup. It says “a stroke of genius” engraved inside. Super cute!
I HAVE TO HAVE a calendar in plain view. My time flies by between work and the kids. A lot of times, I am quickly checking dates for something. If I am looking at my email to check something, all I have to do is glance up and see the calendar. I can’t tell you how helpful this is and a time saver. When I first saw the 2015 Les Fleurs Calendar, I knew we needed to have a hot date together (get it, I am so funny…to myself and probably myself only). The colors and artwork are A-MA-ZING!
Rifle Paper Co. is KILLING IT lately! This Emerald Peonies Wrapping Paper can be used for so much more than just wrapping paper. I knew it would make some pretty fabulous wall art, so that is just what I did. I was inspired by the De Gournay wall paper panels that I love so much. This is my really inexpensive version of the look. I have another sheet leftover so I am thinking of lining my desk drawers or making book covers with it.
I have learned over the years that I am a 7-year-old-child and need to write things down in pencil so I can easily erase them. Deadlines change, post line-ups get altered. I am a planner, but you need to be flexible in blogging. Shipments arrive damaged or late, I may get inspired by something and want to write on that instead of what I had planned. Pencils are just a better tool for me. Plus, I prefer to draw designs in pencil. It’s my inescapable artist background. I just treated myself to these girly themed She is pencils.
I am so 1993, and this Sugar Paper 2015 Daily Planner is my grown-up Trapper Keeper. Creative people can be scattered-brained. Let’s face it, we are a unique breed. I love this planner because it is a good size and has monthly calendars and a day-by-day scheduler. I am an if-I-write-it-down-I-will-do-it kind of person. I like to check things off and organize my thoughts and schedules. I tried doing this on my phone, but it was a huge fail. I’m just a pencil and paper kind of girl.
Ah, yes! When I schedule my week for the blog, I then break it down into tasks to finish each day. With several projects going on and planning for new ones, it is a lot to balance. I love this weekly desk pad for doing just that. This helps me manage my time each day. One day may read: source bathroom accessories, reply to this email, write this post, paint this room, photograph this project, etc. It really helps me fit in what needs to be done and helps me spread it out over the week so it is doable. Without doing this, trust me, nothing would get done in a workable time frame!
There’s what’s on my desk for 2015 and maybe a little too much insight into how I operate!
Let’s make this year amazing!
