My Dream Working Space

>> Play Me <<

Hey šŸ™‚

As my internship (that I was mentionning (here),Ā ended, I thought that it would be nice to share some tips about what makes a work environment nice and productive to me. These are my personal thoughts, don’t hesitate in sharing yours!

N.B: Beautiful natural light, lovely mood boards and amazing furniture.

1. The most important thing to me is LOVINGĀ WHAT YOU DO

2. The second most important thing is ENJOYĀ WORKING WITH YOUR COLLEAGUES

If at least one of these conditions is not true for you, unless you really need the job right now, I am telling you – you deserve way better and WILLĀ be so much happier.

Once these conditions are completed, hereĀ are some bonuses that make everything special to me:

* Natural Lighting
The office needs to have as much natural lighting as possible. It is essential to see everything very clearly, and getting good energy from the sunlight. Light is important for the room but also for your tech. Meaning, you have to be careful your computer and tablets are not too bright or too dark for you. Everything has to be really well balanced for you to stay focus all along the day.

* Minimal Style
This is personal, but as in interior design in general – I love minimalism. White is THEĀ color for me along with light colored wood and black. I also like very clean and straight lines as far as furniture goes.

* #GoodVibesOnly
As I was saying, enjoying the atmosphere at work is essenital and way more important than all these elements. But I am a huge believer in Feng Shui too. And although I am not an expert, I can definitely feel when the vibe of the room seems a bit off (or maybe it’s just in my head!). Read some more about Feng Shui and offices here.

* Good Furniture
Well OBVIOUSLY. A comfy chair and a wide desk – tall enough for me to cross my legs (does anybody else ever felt annoyed by that lack of space sometimes?)

* Creative Inspiration
I am a very creative person and I genuinely feel bad when I am not fed with creativity. It can come from many different things that I need to be able to see from time to time during the work the day. This can be flowers, pictures, brands, photoshoots, magazines, people among many others!
This is mainly why I love keeping flowers at my desk, they enhance my creativty and contribute to a beautiful desk. But I also enjoy having a inspirational pannel not too far away but at the same time that will not look cluttery and distract me when I need to be focused on other things. That’s why I love the inspo boards on the pictures I selected because they are quite tidy and dont get in your way.

* Miscellaneous
– /!\ Sticky notes lover. Every kind. Keeping the serious ones for serious notes, and the funnier ones to bring some smiles on my colleagues’ faces šŸ™‚
– A cute mug
– Some drawers and nice folders to keep everyhting very tidy. I am a very messy person but when it comes to my work I am quite organized and although I can get messy throughout the day, I won’t leave with my desk looking like a sample of the Revolution.
– Figure out your agenda – paper? Google Calendar? Outlook? Still figuring this out, but personally loved using outlook in the company I used to work at to schedule meetingsĀ with my team.
– And of course, a good calendar to always keep track of upcoming projects and mid-long term deadlines.

Now that I don’t work anymore I’m slowly getting ready for back to school season as I will start a new degree.

I still love to get hard-working and creative atmosphere in cool cafĆ©s and coworking spaces. If you are in the States, I would highly recommend you checking out WeWork. It is a fast growing company, recognised worldwide by its quality. They’ve got so many great co-working locations! Can’t wait to have them here in Paris! Ā #PLEASE?!

Cheers,

Many many many of you may know this by now. I got some Stan Smith sneakers for my birthday back in October and I have been absolutely loving them. They are super comfortable, go with everything and they always give a casual touch yet sophisticated thanks to the Midas touch (got it? Gold šŸ˜‰ – so P&F). Follow me around and see more snaps of my own Stan Smith here!

Eyelashes DIY

Hi guys!

No.. this is not a DIY to grow your eyelashes or anything like that… However it is the perfect post for the ones who love eyelashes & DIY’s!

This is kind of a random post where I picked some things that I have been liking and want to create!

So let’s see what we got there!

I have been loving this picture for so so long now! When I first saw it on Pinterest I kind of did not know what to think about it because it striked me so much, but then I realize that this girl is just amazingly beautiful. What stroke me is actually gorgeous! It is this bold eye look that she has, I mean come on! Her eyes, eyelashes, eyebrows are so so nice! This picture is really simple but I really love it. I wish I had such an amazing picture of myself. Amazing.

Now few days ago, I saw this picture while looking for some DIYs on Pinterest! I just thought this little project was so cool and I am actually thinking about putting it on the wall behind my bed. I think it is going to look very cute. NOW I NEED YOU MY DEAR READERS, my bedroom is white and kind of a champagne color, so I don’t really know what colors I should use for this.. I mean pink is definitely a great color when it comes to representing a heart.. (duh) but I think I am going to get bored after a while. I have some silver touches as well, so I thought replacing the gold paper on the DIY with a silver one. Then for the 2 other colors I really don’t know.. I mean white paper on the white walls is going to look strange. I thought about a very pale baby green as I have flowers a lot of time around my bedroom (and they always have at least their leaves that are green). But I don’t really know. I need your help to pick 3 colors! Please let your suggestions in the comments!

Now ladies and gentlemen.. the most expected, the amazing, the funnieeeeeeest EYELASHES EYE MASK! *tadaa*
How cool is this eye mask? I mean you can take all your make up off before you go to bed and not be afraid of looking bad when you sleep (bold eyelashes style – oh yea). I saw this one at Claire’s today and I think it is still available (at least in their website it is). Love it!
I think I am going to buy a very simple eye mask and then DIY to get to this style. Or maybe buy it. I’ll see!

Hope you like these little eyelashes/DIY stuff!

XOXO,

P&F
