This week's Monday Piece is on blog organisation! I'm on a massive mission to be more organised and savvy with my blog, home and everything else that comes with it - this means being tidier, making better use of space, and making the most of what i have! Blog diaries and notebooks are great, whether it's for keeping track of posts, potential posts, emails and dates to remember like events and personal milestones, they are mega handy and i love writing things down and flicking back and forth at what's going on. Paperchase are ideal for diaries and organisers as they have a huge selection of different colours, prints and styles, plus they always have some mega cute bits and bobs! Other stationery items are great for getting organised too, like post-its and colourful pens and pencils, plus they look so cute on a desk or side table.
I've been looking for ways to promote my blog other than social media, and have rediscovered some old business cards i got made when i first started out - when i go to blog events and parties i always kick myself when i don't remember my cards, though they're a little out of date so i'm keen to get them upgraded and updated as they can open up so many doors and opportunities, plus they're a great way of starting a conversation with other bloggers and socialising too! Sooo i've been browsing online and looking for a decent site to make me some fab quality cards i can dish out to friends, bloggers, PR's and businesses - Where The Trade Buys offer high quality printing including selfie frames, banners, menus and business cards - and with next day delivery options there's no waiting for weeks on end for your business cards to arrive which is ideal for girls like me that leave everything until last minute, despite how organised i'm trying to be! Where the trade buys have single or double sided options, a selection of finishes, and different sizes, and you can download the template to easily personalise your design too, making it super simple to upload your artwork. Check out their business card options for yourself and get organised like i'm trying to!
I've selected some ace organisational bits below, i'm desperate to create a chilled, pretty desk space with a few fun things too, i love little plants and cactus, plus writing sets and notebooks - and i would love an Apple watch to keep track of my inbox, messages and dates for the diary! Ikea and Dunelm are fab for bargain desks, and that kind of furniture, so i might have a little look and get my organised space sorted!
