Embracing the watch life | Daniel Wellington promo code

I have never been a watch person. To be honest, the perception of their utility, rather than as a fashion accessory, has always been my main focus. Why do I need to tell the time if I have an iPhone almost literally glued to my hand? As I began to embrace their uniqueness, however, I was reminded that there will never be such a simple addition to my outfit. I could wear a necklace or a ring, but nothing will ever be quite as timeless (pun intended?).

Apartment tour: My favourite accent pieces

One of my resolutions for the new year – rather, a plan, since labelling anything as a resolution typically has a negative end – is to simplify my living space through excessive decluttering and through rearranging furniture and other pieces to bring about a more cohesive and relaxing environment.

Du Jour: 5 Essentials For Every Desktop

1. Metals Bezel Wooden Picture Frame | 2. iPad Mini 2 | 3. Water Bottle with Fruit Infuser | 4. The Body Shop Shea Hand Cream | 5. Texturized Stucco Ceramic Oval Table Lamp

 

If you’re looking for new ways to maximize your desktop space, then consider planning it out like you would any other remodel. It’s easy to get bogged down in clutter, so take a moment to think about what you really need around you when you’re working.

For me, I like to have water to keep me hydrated, a photo or two to keep me inspired, a lamp for extra light, my iPad for creativity, and some hand cream to keep my skin from cracking, especially in the winter.

Remove everything that’s superfluous to getting your work done and anything that will only hinder your creativity. Too much stuff can sometimes have a detrimental effect on your productivity – at least it does for me.
