Office Space

 Come take a peak at where I work. I spend 8 hours (on a good day) sitting in the pretty little cubicle. Luckily, I work in the heart of downtown Chicago, right on Michigan Ave, and I get to look out at a pretty sick view.

Unluckily, I mostly have to look at this.

No one at my office really gussies up their desk so mine is like the "fanciest" that there is.

 I figure that I spend more time at my desk than I do at my home, so I should at least have a few things that I like to look at.

 Pictures of my sisters and of places that I've been to help me smile throughout the day - which in turn makes me a nicer person to be around.

Secretly I'd love to add a small lamp and candle, but they already think I'm "teacher-y" enough, and I'm playing with the big cats at work, so I think I'll wait until I have my own office...with a door.

I also stole this secret from Guliana Ranic's office at E! - which is to hang a pretty scarf over a boring desk chair. Granted her pretty scarf is Burberry, but this scarf has so many purposes, I wouldn't trade it in for anything (well, okay, I would trade it in for Burberry).

Not only does it make my chair pretty, it's pretty nice to know that I could easily wear it if I were to ever have a fashion emergency.

In fact one of my co-workers had shacked up with a guy a few months back and she had to come to work wearing his white undershirt.....she felt so uncomfortable and SO obvious.....but with the addition of my scarf, she looked fabulous, and even better,  no one could tell she was bein' a hooch!


What does your office space look like? Do you try and add your own sense of style too?


  1. Oh that would be so much fun working off Michigan Ave - jealous! :)

  2. hhahah I love how your scarf saved your colleague from being ousted as a hooch ahah I don't do much with my desk because we move desks about once a year and I try to keep it as uncluttered as possible. You've done a good job adding in a touch of personality though, you might inspire me yet!

  3. Love that scarf idea! I don't have an office yet, but when I do, you can be sure I'll remember that little trick. You should add a small little vase with one flower, not to showy, but still adds color!

  4. You're so neat and organized! I wish I had a cute desk like that at work.

  5. Love the scarf idea! I think you did a great job sprucing up your space! If I stretch my arms too far in my office I'd smack someone in the face. Ha!

  6. I love your desk area! I should do a little tour of my desk area on the blog...great idea!
