My Little Work Space

Sunday, 28 September 2014

I'm writing this whilst sitting in my pyjamas, cuppa in hand (Yorkshire of course!) and trying to recover from the dreaded fresher's flu! Yep, I'm back at Uni and have had one of the most fun and crazy weeks of my life going out with my friends and meeting new ones! Of course this has meant I haven't had much time to blog but since I have a couple hours this Sunday morning whilst my house mates are in bed recovering from last night's antics, I thought I'd share my little desk set up with you as lectures start again tomorrow!

I think it's so important to have somewhere pleasant to sit and do work because work is hard enough as it is, so why not make it as nice as possible?! As you can see there are plenty owls on there..I brought my owl chalk board with me from home as it's great for writing little reminders on or 'feel good' quotes for the harder times.

My fairy lights were only a few pounds from primark and make my room so cosy in the evening if I'm just writing emails or doing something a bit more relaxing than writing up uni notes!

The desk actually came with the house and has a magnetic white board on it. It's so handy...I'm sure it'll be plastered with all sorts of reminders and things I must learn in the near future.

If anyone else has done a post on their uni room, I'd love to see so please comment below! I do like a good nosey :)


  1. Aw, that does look cozy! The fairy lights are a great touch - I would love to have them in our room, but I don't think my husband would agree!

  4. Such a lovely desk, loving the owls!!! I totally agree that it's important to have a pleasant work space - you need to actually want to be sat there.
