Whether you work at home or in an office, it’s important to pick the most appropriate furniture for each situation in order to create an environment that is comfortable and appealing. If you’ve been reading my blog, you will know that I’ve been redecorating and putting together my little studio in my house. For me, colour and light are important, as well as making the most of the available storage for all the artwork pieces as well as materials yet to be used. It also needs to be comfortable and inviting, as well as easy to tidy up and maintain.
For anyone looking to improve an office space, taking comfort into consideration is also extremely important, as most people spend the majority of their days at work. This will not only will improve general wellbeing but will also help prevent sickness and promote productivity.
To achieve these objectives, finding the perfect chair or the ideal boardroom table from Furniture at Work that suit one’s budget will make all the difference.
An office chair that’s ergonomic and appropriate for the type of work is the key piece on every workstation. A good chair will prevent back pain and tiredness and as such, it’s best to invest as much as you can in it.

And I am back! After being extremely poorly for a couple of weeks (trust me you’ll want to be spared the details) which culminated in a blogging absence, I am now back. I have a lot of new things to show you and I may even have a couple of extra posts this week, as I missed out on some work I should have done last week. Thank you so much to all of you who messaged me and were concerned – it means a lot! You know who you are, special props to all of you from the bottom of my heart. You are real life Care Bears.
To prove that I am feeling much better, I am posting the photos Filipa took this last Saturday, when we went out for a spot of shopping in town. I had a Matalan gift voucher to use and some extra discounts to use, so I went along. And I failed on my objective to not buy stuff. But… I did use the voucher and the discount and as soon as I got home, I filled another big bag with clothes to donate. Trust me, I’m getting rid of a lot more than I brought in. So yeah, I failed but I’ll get back on track, I’ve been behaving a lot better as a whole. I don’t know why I failed but it must have had something to do with being ill and all that… makes you feel like pampering yourself a little. Or so I tell myself. Regardless, I’ve been doing pretty well until now and getting a lot more conscious about what I want to wear and look like than before.
Without further ado, here’s what I wore: Bears Cardigan – C/o Just For 5 Pounds, Skirt – Ebay, Shirt – Made by my great Aunt, Tights – Oxfam (I think), Ring – Gifted by Oh La Lali, Shoes – Office, via their outlet on Ebay, Bag – Paul Frank (I’ve had it for years and got it from Ebay at the time), Hair Bow – Alternate Normality (from the Blogcademy goodie bag).
Right now I’m sooo excited for the arrival of Spring, I have so many plans! How about you?
If you didn’t miss Monday’s post, you will know I went to the ASOS HQ last Saturday to an event that was part of the Access All ASOS program. As promised, I am sharing the photos I took of the quick visit we did around their offices, located at the Greater London House. I didn’t take any photos of the building myself but do have a look, it’s a feast for any Art Deco fans and cat crazy people such as myself.
ASOS is a company that has been established not too long ago, in 2001. It is now one of the main online fashion retailers in the UK and ships worldwide, bringing fashion for all tastes and wallets to women and men worldwide. I really liked visiting their offices, I wouldn’t mind working in a place like this, surrounded by beautiful clothes and shoes all day round!
I’m a sucker for colour and embroidery so this really caught my eye.
Mood boards everywhere!
I shook my little tush on the ASOS catwalk.
ASOS Wall of Models.
My favourite section – The shoes!
Apologies for the crap photos… I only had my phone on me when I was whisked away to do the guided tour. Hopefully there will be more opportunities in the future to take better photos *hint hint*. I am very happy to be part of the ASOS Insiders group, it’s a fantastic opportunity for anyone taking fashion and blogging seriously and all I can say is a big THANK YOU to ASOS!
One of my current TV loves is undoubtedly American Horror Story Coven. I would venture to say that in my opinion, this has been the best season of the series so far. Too bad that it’ll be the last…
As I love the styling in the series, I thought I’d bring out the items in my closet that resemble the outfits on TV and had me some fun in the dark!
“What was that sound?”
What I wore: Floppy hat : H&M (also seen here), Dress – Vintage Jaeger, from a charity shop (also seen here), Boots – Office (via Ebay).
I’m adding the outfit to Patti’s Visible Monday!
I was just looking at my files and I still have a gazillion outfits to share and found these photos taken with a disposable camera. I like the way they look, I should do this more often.
This outfit was baptized ‘The Metallina’, as it is a mix of heavy metal with ballerina. I love that skirt, I wish the button hadn’t popped that day. I have to wear it with a safety pin as it’s too tight now LOL. Leather panel skirt, Office ballerinas, Judas Priest t-shirt, Denim Jacket (customized by me) and Claw Ring all from Ebay.
On this day I was wearing : Cosmic Cat tee – from the men’s section at Target (from one of my trips to Florida), Leopard Print Skirt -Ebay, Shoes – Dune (TK Maxx), Headscarf – Zara, Sunnies – Moschino, Pleather Jacket – H&M
Here I am, drinking a can of liquid cellulitis (aka a can of full fat cola) and trying to do a jumping photo but failing miserably. Headscarf and jacket are the same as before, Dress – I forget the brand but I got it from someone’s blog sale, Tights -Ebay, Shoes – Vans Hello Kitty, Bag – from a swap with my friend Lili.
And as always, it begs the question: which one is your favourite?
Adding this to Visible Monday over at Patti’s!
Edit: Added to Jane’s Shiny T Tuesday!
