DIY Desk Organisation | clever idea

Many of us are workaholics, either staying long hours at the office, working on the weekends or typing furiously in between making dinner.

Really? Not ideal.

To make your workspace better, you need to organise. I’m a great believer in organised chaos, although the chaos can be contained quite easily on a pin board or white board for stressed-out scribbles (we’ve all done it, right?!).

I’ve pulled together some fairly simple DIY desk organisation ideas – whether that’s putting your crazed inspiration in one place (ie: a board above your computer), tidying your desk (like the innovative plug idea) or simply making your drawers navigable.

A tidy desk = a relaxed mind with potential to innovate, excite and perform the best it can 🙂

Happy organising!

Just Launched! The Good Girls Guide

Hi everyone!

I’m thrilled to announce the soft launch of The Good Girls Guide – a go-to blog for the latest tips, tricks & clever ideas to keep you moving, inspired and motivated to live life to the utmost.

Although this is a South African blog (I’m based in beautiful Cape Town), any girl anywhere (whether vamping it up in gorgeous-to-die-for New York City, or lazing about in a small Karoo town) is invited to share stories, advice or tips.

If it’s advice on how to communicate to your man,  an awesome show-off-to-your-friends dinner recipe, incredible decor or design ideas or simply a fashion item that you’re coveting, The GG Guide wants to know about it and blog about it 🙂

Read more about The GG Guide or contact us here. Happy reading!
