Desk Buds

I just read an article about things EVERY fashion girl has in her home.  Pretty standard fare: peonies the size of my face, some fashion art books, ghost chairs, leopard-y something, gorgeously-scented ($$$$) candles. Totes norm!

I recently saw a quote "comparison is the thief of joy." It was on Pinterest and had many repins therefore it must be true!  So instead of making myself feel deprived (nah, I wouldn't really feel that way), let me show you what THIS girl has at her desk!

 

A cold cup of coffee. I brewed this with a Chemex a few hours earlier.  The teensy marbling you see there?  That's from the spoonful of coconut oil I stirred into my coffee. Have you tried that? Apparently it makes coffee tres healthy. No detectable coconut flavor, but I find I don't need to add cream.

 

Paper.  Calling cards x3. Things with my name on them. This stuff that makes me feel way OFFICIAL.

     Not exactly fashion tomes, but some faves to peruse when I find a few moments between conference calls. Or when I want to look at something else besides a screen.  No...really.

Oh hey, some girly goods!  Nail polish for mini-breaks.  I find that Butter London dries particularly fast - or maybe the wind I kick up from all that fast typing is the trick.  These days I'm opting for neutral nails and top coat is a must for making them last!

     The Jambox Mini is a space-friendly music amplifier for my little desk + Pharrell sounds great coming out of there!

     Love peonies! But sometimes they feel so fancy.  Smaller flowers are just as pretty.  Oh and let's not forget about No.2 pencils.  Come on - pencils symbolize DREAMS!  These particular ones are "My First Pencils" from Ticonderoga.  Totally not sensible - they're bigger for kid hands. I think they're funny.  Fact: one day I'll personalize my own pencils and give them to people as a calling card.  It'll be my thing.

     Millie!  This lady likes to sit under my desk while I'm working.  She gives me so much love and fur...all over my pant legs. Here she is in a rare appearance, out from under - broody as ever.
