Hello all! Somehow time is already getting away from me even though the New Year just started! Things have already been crazy busy as I finally submitted all of my grad school applications (!!!), made lots of new resolutions and goals for 2018, and have started to get my life organized. A lot of that has been new ideas and plans for Lefty Living Life, so definitely stay tuned and if there is anything you would like to see, please message me or comment!
A new year is basically a clean slate. You can start over on a project, try and pick up a habit, change something in your life, really anything you want and it is an easier marker to use. I try and be one of those people where it doesn’t matter what day you start something new, as long as you start it. But today, everything seemed to fall into place and it was the perfect time to launch the new and improved Lefty Living Life.
If you been reading Lefty Living Life for a while, you have probably noticed that I have my hands in a lot of different pies and I am normally pretty busy with all of my different extracurriculars. For me, that means that when I get home from my 9-5 job, I need a designated space where I can sit down, concentrate, and work and not be distracted by other things. But, I also need that space to be inspiring as I work on coming up with new blog post ideas, writing posts, and designing business plans. This perfect balance is something that I am still working on regularly, but my desk has become pretty close to prefect.
Most of my work, I do on my laptop, but I have an old Mac desktop that I use to listen to music and watch Netflix while I’m working or to put up all of my pictures for my post so I can see them as I write. Although I work mainly on my laptop, I am still an old fashioned pen and paper list girl. I have notebooks everywhere it seems filled with my to-do lists. My favorite one
currently is from Rifle Paper
. I love their cute patterns and the notebooks and other products are all such good quality.
The rest of my work space is filled with personal mementos and girly details to help inspire me as I write. The map over my desk is a scratch-off map
. You scratch off all of the places you’ve been! I love the idea of this, plus it is so fun to be able to mark when you’ve been someplace. My bookshelf beside my desk is filled with my favorite books, books to read, blogging books, and my clutch/ wallet collection. I am definitely one of those people where if something is out of sight, it is completely out of mind. So I try and keep all of my purses out and about around my apartment so I remember to mix it up. Displaying your clutches on a shelf is a great way to keep track of them, plus they add a little pop of color to your room! Until next time, XO
Hello wonderful readers! I can’t believe I’m writing this, but today is Lefty Living Life’s 4th birthday! It seems like just yesterday I was reading The Londoner and The Neo-Traditionalist and learning about blogs in general and now here I am writing my own blog. It is crazy how fast time flies. Of course, this blog started out as only a fun project, a way to spend my time between high school and graduation and potentially document my fours in college. However, it has become so much more. Lefty has been an incredible creative outlet that I didn’t even know I needed, a way for me to explore my ideas about fashion and style and to develop my own style, and a way for me to grow as a person and document that growth. What I am trying to say is that Lefty Living Life is one of the most important aspects of my life and something I have come to value and cherish above almost all else and I love that I have been able to share it with you! So thank you for reading and supporting me on this journey and I can’t wait to see what the next four years have in store. XO
