Decor yo desk

When one must work within the confined space of a desk, it is fun to have feel good items to surround yourself with. I work in an office setting and since the day I stepped into this setting I have been accumulating many-a-office supplies. Anything glitzy, anything to jot numerous notes a day on, anything that makes my heart sing, well I'm all for it. I'm happy to say that while I have purchased many items for Le desk of mine, I have also been gifted tons too. I get very happy when I receive an item someone saw that made them think I would appreciate it.

I believe if more professionals had more fun desk flair, they would be eager to get to work to use it. I'm not saying you need a pinata above your head, but I mean slight improvements would be a good start. Say, for example, you have a stapler on hand, why not doll it up with a little sparkle? Who doesn't like sparkle???? When I hand mine over and I sense judgement, well, I am definitely taking note of who your character truly is. Do you hate chubby babies and funfetti cupcakes too?

After 3 years as a young professional, I'm proud to say I'm professional my way and I've got the desk decor to prove it.

Now run, be free, hit up your neighborhood Target and Pier 1 Import to find snazzy tidbits to doll up a little.


A few of my favorite things:


Hunty snagged my tape dispenser and my sticky note purse a couple years ago. What can I say? My boo knows the way to heart, my feet and arms many times over.


When faced with the choice of regular #2 pencils, obvi you should find the jazzy glitter ones. Obvi. Fun stationary? Check, check.


Hunter's momma Sharon, or Shanizzy as I call her, gifted me this fab pen she scored at Pier 1. Lovessss it. It goes perfect with the stapler Courtney, H's sister gave me a few years back for a bday. I Loveeeee these people!


Inspiration and love on your walls, amiright? Nuff said.


A nice desk lamp and an organized contraption to store said fab pens and glitter pencils. Keeps it clean and bright folks. An old coworker gave me his lamp when he moved roles bc I had admired it for many moons. See? Pays to be a weirdo who compliments others' desk attire.


My momma found this for me a few Christmases ago. It's short, simple, and I look at it each and every day. It's applies to so much. Thank ya Momma Knizzy.

That is it for today. I'm off to edit some video footage of the a City Council meet and greet and to the water tomorrow. I cannot wait to see some babies stick their little chubby toes in some sand and water. Excelleenttttt. Happy Weekend!

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
