Have y’all caught on that I am an anxiety-ridden mess ninety-percent of the time?

I’m sure you have. And that’s okay; the first step is admitting you have a problem. So although I may be trying to lower my anxieties with self-care (helloooo, LUSH BATH BOMBBB), when it comes to me and my writing and particular head-space, I need a super-organized desk.

Cue Target, because when in doubt, Target is always there, like an Uber after a drunken night, or taco trucks and quesadillas after a drunken night, or mimosas during brunch after a drunken night…(speaking of problems…*COUGH*

After getting elevated to a new position at work, I knew I was going to be switching offices and that I would be getting a new desk (much bigger than the last one, thank god).

Sooooooo, with my sweet bonus, I hopped and skipped my way over to Target to splurge a little on some new desk gear.


On that organizing grindddd.




And dammit, I did good, for my standards, at least. I stuck with a classic gold theme, incorporating a positive spirit with some of my photos and luxe organization with my monthly planner and JoyBox Day Planner, which I mentioned in my first blog.

Adorbs, no?


I love to keep affirmations around me at all times. Whether it’s the background of my computer, cute cut-outs from Pinterest, or my all-time favorite “Nama’ Slay” (which helps me reaffirm that I can slay at whatever task I’m doing, but be mindful about it, to take a break when needed to stretch, or take an Instagram break to stalk your fave celebs, whatever will give you a break so you don’t overdo it and burn yourself out at your task), I am always surrounded with positivity and encouragement when my support team isn’t around.

So whether I’m in the office on the weekends editing and writing and slayinggg, or whether I am doing a damn good diligent job at work, I have a safe, calming space to focus, stay positive, and get my shit done!

Look at this stuff–isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t ya think my collection’s complete?


So y’all, that was the desk-scape I needed. You gotta do what works for you.

And speaking of doing things that I gotta do, if you’ve made it this far, HERE IS THE SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT I HINTED AT ON TWITTER AND FACEBOOK, LOVES!
