Kind of disorganised, but it’s the end of the week and I will do my big tidy-up during the weekend as I always do… So! Things on my desk right now:
01: My computer. It’s a HP touch screen all-in-one computer that I love. I do miss my laptop (it died on me recently) but this has been a wonderful replacement.
02: Antique ‘sparrow’ candle holder. (the odd looking thing to the side of the computer) I bought this in an antique store in downtown Phoenixville during my trip to the states last year. It’s probably an outdoor item but I think it’s so sweet I like to keep it on my desk. I should really find a tea candle to put inside at some stage…
03: My pretty IKEA lamp. I don’t know if this style is still available for purchase (I couldn’t see it on the site) but I fell in love with it because it reminded me of something Charlotte from SATC would have in her apartment. Ha, I’m so lame.
04: 750ml Pump water bottle. I always have a bottle of water on hand. I prefer the pump water bottles because of the pop-top. I don’t know why, but I find it easier to drink more water out of these than the regular screw-top bottles.
05: Kikki K Notebook. I write lists for practically everything. This book contains a lot of those lists. I like to keep track of things I might want to blog about, products I need to review, bills I need to pay etc – all of that goes into this notebook.
06: Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream. I was sent this product to review and have kept it on my desk for nightly use. I love it, and will post about it soon!
07: Manicare All-In-One & Essie Angora Cardi Nail Polish. I painted my nails on Wednesday evening (you all need Essie Angora Cardi btw – a friend of mine sent me a bottle as a gift, and it is perfection) and still have the bottles lying around.
08: Kikki K To Do List. I update this every weekend with the things I need to remember to do. Exciting things like “run fish filter” and “grocery shopping”. Do not envy my glamourous life.
09: Half completed grocery shopping list. I have a terrible memory (in fact I just thought of something to write on this list but have since forgotten…) and writing a grocery list is necessary for me to remember everything I need to buy for the week.
10: My engagement ring. I try not to wear this at night incase I give myself or Mr B a black eye by accident.
11: 45 cents. I clean my wallet out of all of the silver coins at the end of the week and put them into a big container to eventually take to the bank. I have only ever gone to the bank to complete this process once in my 25 years. I have a lot of silver coins stored for a rainy day!
12: Kikki K Love Heart Post It. I only have one left! Eek! Lucky I have a replacement pad in my storage box…
13: 2 loose leaf tea canisters. I picked these up at a tea party a friend of mine had to launch her friend’s organic tea range. They both have original blend loose leaf organic herbal tea inside.
14: Kikki K Accordian Expandable Filing Folder. For storing monthly bills and various important documentation.
15: Gogol Bordello Non Stop DVD. I bought this recently and have watched it, but need to take some screencaps for a Pamela Racine site that I set up and run for a friend.
16: Kikki K Proof Of Purchase Receipts Book. I like to keep track of what I spend my “shopping allowance” on every fortnight – and I do so in this handy little book!
17: Vitamins! I take Cod Liver Oil (with vitamins a&d), Zinc Formula and Vitamin E every night. Keeping them on my desk helps me to remember to take them.
18: Yet another Kikki K To Do List. This one is smaller and is in sticky note form. I use these throughout the week to remember things I need to do at work or around the house when I get home.
19: Kikki K Pen Holder full of various things including: abraham lincoln bookmark (purchased from the lincoln memorial store in washington), tiny bamboo hand-painted bookmark (gift from my best friend from her travels through japan), kikki k magnetised pegs, various pens, yellow and green highlighers & a paul and joe kitten nail file.
20: Kikki K Storage Box full of various things including: paper documents for filing, press releases for products I am yet to review, age of empires 3 PC game (nerd alert!), replacement kikki k to do list pad, blank kikki k notebook, replacement kikki k love heart post its, blank CDs, organic loose-leaf tea packets (so I can remember what tea I’m drinking), receipts for filing.
21: Some random things… A Sweet Valley High TV Series DVD (loose), Woman’s Weekly Chilli Con Carne Recipe Printout, $20 Sussan Gift Card & a pump water bottle cap.
