I'm going to start off with a little moan -- I had this perfectly planned and ready, then everything fell apart! My server went down, posts wouldn't publish, things didn't arrive, my camera decided to stop working (hence the less than ideal quality of these photos).. finally I managed to actually get it done, but it's not my best work so I'll probably revisit it soon!
Now moan over, let me welcome you to a special smeethsaysfashion feature called "Inside Peek" where I let you see certain aspects of my home/life/work. This particular feature is based on how I style my desk for maximum creativity! Aside from writing here with all you lovely people, I am a professional journalist and photographer, so it's very important for me to have somewhere to sit down and WORK! I thought I'd show you my work-space so shall we take a peek?
The first thing you might notice is no computer, I know crazy right? But no, I have evicted the desktop to another room. If I'm writing I find it easier to work with pen and paper anyway, so a computer takes up extra space. For research I just bring in the laptop when I need it. The desktop has now been given a new home, as it is required for photo editing but it's actually better placed there than it was here. The first thing I noticed when it was gone was all the SPACE! I have room to spread things out, and there's nothing for me to kick under the desk, it's wonderful!
As you can see one of the main feature is that beautiful 'Love' light, it's from valuelights who I'm a brand ambassador for and you can read my review on it here.
So there you have it.. a sneak peek at my desk and my favourite items that I think any creative mind should have at their work-space! Let me know what you think, do you agree or is there something I've missed? You can also see some more photos below!
