Blogger Desktop Essentials

This post is sponsored by Papyrus. From reading my blog I think it’s pretty clear how important my surroundings are to me. It is so hard for me to be productive if I’m not inspired by my space, which is why l always take the time to decorate (and redecorate) my office. When I look around my desk and see things that I love, and tools that keep me organized, I seriously feel like I can take on the world.

One of my goals for the new year was to order out less, and cook more. It’s so easy to fall into the habit of ordering takeout night after night. I knew it would be much easier to get into the swing of cooking if our kitchen was stocked with all the best (and prettiest) tools. Enter MacKenzie-Childs. The definition of whimsical.

Now that I’ve converted, I have been having the most productive days ever, accomplishing goals and to-do list…
