Lifestyle | My Blogging Desk

Hello Lovelies
I thought I would give you all a bit of a sneak peek where I write my blogs on 'GillMcLaughlin'.
This is my little space for doing all my admin work, blog writing and occasionally blog photo's for that white background.

However I do usually type away on my laptop on the couch or in bed as that is usually the comfiest place to be along with a hot chocolate and some cookies. I'm not doing that right now though... honest!

The desk is the Micke desk from Ikea which costs £60. This is the perfect size desk for me at the moment, it's not too big but not too small as I still have room for some cute essential decorations.
I found it so hard to get a white chair that wasn't going to cost me a fortune so I got this white metal type fold up chair from habitat for £10 and just put a cushion on it along with a sheepskin rug draped over it from Ikea, also £10.

The little shelf above the desk is from Argos which cost around £15 but you can also get them from Ikea, I've just draped some fairly lights over it and decorated it with some cuteness.

If anyone can recommend where I can get a pink cushion for my chair I would love it if you could write in the comments below.

Love Gill x

  4. Fabulous space, I love these types of posts to get ideas. It’s so fun to add accessories to a room. I also love how everything is crisp and white. If you are looking for a nice pink cushion I would recommend Debenhams when they have offers on. This one looked cute for £15: http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_306014416206_-1
    Hope that helps!! :-) xx

    1. Thanks so much! that cushion is adorable, loving the fluffiness / featherness to it!! thanks for looking for me x

  5. I think blogging at a desk is much better than anywhere else as (for me) it makes me actually blog otherwise my mind wanders and I end up on YouTube or Facebook or someone elses blog ... when I'm sitting at a desk I just feel like I need to get on with it and do it ... don't know why though haha! Just my odd thinking! Love your little space! I've been looking for a new desk ... might have to try IKEA :)
