Getting Organised.


Nope, the New Year ‘get my life together’ bug has not passed me by, although it has taken me a little longer than usual to get in the mood for it. This week I completely cleared out my office and really got prepped for starting afresh. I feel like a good person, everybody!

There’s nothing better than a tidy desk for feeling motivated – I cleared away all the clutter and even made sure my computer desktop was free of nonsense. There’s a lot to be said for cleaning out your computer, I felt seriously balanced after having a good trash-spree – is that lame? Probably.Β Wallpaper from here.
I spend a lot of hours in this room so I always prefer it when it’s stripped back and neat, I like the ‘organised clutter’ feel so all my favourite bits and pieces are nicely displayed but the area still looks like an office environment. As I said, I’m working on launching something new soon (not an album, sorry!) so I need lots of room for planning and feeling creative. Hopefully you will also feel inspired after reading this!

I bought a new Paperchase diary and even have a new phone case, so I’m definitely in the mood to get working. I’ll be expecting big things from myself after such a massive tidying session, and with Mouse as my intern I’m sure this will be the year I go global.

Have you guys been getting organised to celebrate the new year?

  • Your office space is amazing!! & your cat is adorable! Mine sits in the same spot haha πŸ™‚

  • Ahhh Kate, your office is the space of dreams. Its just so pretty. I’m the same, went on a crazy cleaning spree a few days ago and got rid of so much excess. WHERE HAD IT COME FROM

  • Why can’t my house look like this LOL! It’s so clean & tidy, a bloggers dream. I absolutely adore the pineapple, I need a few bits & pieces like this for my house. I had a wardrobe/eBay clearout if that counts?

  • Your cat is adorable! He/she is definitely stealing the limelight in these pictures lol.


  • Oh yeah there are so many spaces in our flat that are in need of a proper sorting out session. We just started with our living room this week and it felt great to get rid of all that stuff. Next up is the kitchen, these cupboards need to be cleaned out!

  • Your desk is so lovely and organised! I love your desktop image too, I pretty much always have one of Cocorrina’s creations on my phone and computer!

  • Zoe Newlove

    That diary is so pretty. Love your office area too. I have got OCD, so I literally cannot stand one single document or file on my Desktop. I have a folder for like everything haha but all off the Desktop. My boyfriend thinks I am nuts.

    Your diary is so lovely! Organisation helps to declutter my mind too and I find that being organised really helps!

    Jodie // La Lune Song

  • Love your desk! Think it’s time i got organised I’m just trying to get myself motivated for it! Iv’e noticed you have the instax mini! is it true you can only take 60 pics or do you just have to change the film?

  • I’ve definitely cleaned out my laptop, iPhone and room, but haven’t got around to my drawers and paperwork yet. I actually thought you were going to launch an album or single of some sort, but now I’m totally clueless about what your secret project might be – can’t wait to hear more about it! ^^

  • I love the pineapple!!! Oh and the collection of washi tape.


  • Ceri

    Ah I love having a good computer clear out – organising folders too, that’s a good one! Haha. πŸ™‚

  • I try my best to be organised all year round… but it’s a struggle! I’m planning on completely ransacking my room and getting rid of all of my clutter in the coming weeks so that I can hopefully have a lovely, stress free space to work in x

    Your desk is so so so organised! Jelly of you. Great photo! xo


  • I’ve been trying to get organised with my college coursework! I even bought a new pencil case and diary so that I can stay a little more organised! I absolutely love your desk area too and your diary is so pretty! I love paper chase, probably my favourite stationary stores. What’s yours?

    My desk looks that clean for about 5 days a year and then it ends up being a bit chaotic. Your cat made me chuckle, he / she is in the best place there to get your full attention.

  • Vivian Yuen

    Love the little glimpses of pineapple in your flat!

    I really love your new phone case it looks so pretty – I sure do need to get organised this year! <3 xx


  • I want a pretty desk like yours and your diary is so pretty and so is your desktop wallpaper. I’m trying to get organized as well and already bought some cute stationary to get me started.

    I’ve already had a clear out off all my paperwork and reorganised it but I really need to sort out my desk. its pretty big but there’s so much sh*t on it that it always looks messy πŸ™


  • I’m still trying to get into the habit of hanging up my clothes as soon as the laundry’s done because I feel like my room perpetually looks messy with clothes at the foot of my bed. Other than that, I’d like to think my room isn’t too messy or disorganized – my best advice is to avoid a lot of little ornaments and always make your bed!


  • Your desk is an absolute dream! Gorgeous photos as usual πŸ™‚ x

    That agenda book is amazing! Getting organized is so important in order to get things done!

  • Love the pastel colors on your desk xx.


  • I typically have a clear-out once every quarter. I hate clutter and I hate when things start piling up. If you look at all the surfaces in my bedroom, you’ll see that they’re all empty – there is literally nothing sitting on top of my desk or nighttables apart from my iMac and a couple of lamps. That’s it. I’m THAT extreme when it comes to interiors lol

  • I’m still desperate to get my hands on that paperchase diary! Your desk set up is gorgeous.

  • Jessica Walford

    This is so satisfying! After Christmas I had a huge clear out and donated about 2 bin bags worth of stuff, felt so refreshing. And one of the best things about new year is getting a new diary, writing on new pages, I’m getting giddy just thinking about it.


  • Occasional Bee

    What a beautiful office space! I love the little kitty! Imagine that was a dog, I have to put up with my dog traipsing across my keyboard! xx http://originaldailybee.blogspot.co.uk/

  • I love the white pineapple.

    Lizzie Dripping

  • I totally know how you feel, every new year and at the beginning of every school term, I find myself doing a complete clean out of my desk area. I really love that gold-ish pumpkin! Great post as always. πŸ™‚


  • Your workspace is so inspirational! I can only imagine all the lovely vibes that flow while working there!

  • New project…hmmm something to do with your beautiful interior design skills? πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing Kate!

  • Such a lovely organised desk! I love the little house BTW with your tape in it, where did you get it from?


  • I’ve definitely been getting organised, but seeing how lovely your desk area looks is making me feel like I have to do more! I love Mouse’s sleeping place of choice too, so cute!


  • I love your desk area!! I worked on my office the day before Christmas and if felt good just to put the desk up against a different wall and have a different view and organize all the mail and create a binder for it. Its nice to have a neat tidy space to work in. I found your blog in my BlogLovin Feed, it would make my day if you stopped by!

  • I love your interior design! x

  • Your disk is so pretty. It looks so cozy and relaxing, the perfect place to work. That knitted wall hanging is probably one of the neatest things I’ve ever seen. Did you make it?

  • I threw out all my old magazines & have decided to start a scrapbook full of things I love that I do see in magazines (rather than keeping the whole thing). I’ve also been keeping my eye out for the perfect desk & chair. Does that count as getting organised?

    I love your space though, very eye catching.


  • Beautiful! Love your pictures!
