Behind the Blog: My Current Workspace

workspace ideas

I was came across a company called by WeWork and it gave me the inspiration to write this post and share my current work space with you all. That is exciting! Don't know who WeWork is? A little background info about WeWork, is that they are a coworking company that builds communities to empower people to do what they love by providing workspaces for companies and individuals. Who wouldn't love a company that allows you to be you which is why I decided to be inspired by office spaces at WeWork and share my own.

I never thought I would share my workspace. However, now you get the behind the blog view to the making of my blog and see where all the blog magic gets done! Until I realized that my work space is more of a work bed space. The beautiful glass desk that is beside my bed is just for show and well for storage. I honestly never sit there. The place I really sit, write and create is from my comfortable bed.


It might not be as amazing as lets say my own office but it gets my work done. Since living in a shared apartment with my mom, siblings and son it leaves me with little room for my own personal workspace so I made my bed my workspace. It is my favourite place in the apartment and the only spot where I don't have to share it. The couch always has a child on it, the desk in the living room always has a child on it, the dinning room table tends to have a child on it so there is not much I can work with there. However, my room is mine even though I share with my son and he sometimes claims a side of my bed, it is still all mine. 


My bed has the space that I need to be comfortable while still lets me be productive. I can curl up against my pillows to tackle my blogging activities, edit photos and social media or make my crafts. You know I love TV and I have mine own here. It tends to have kids cartoons on it throughout the day for when my son decides to watch. I have my fan on for when I am feeling hot or for when I am cold because my body cannot make up its mind at times. A window to bring sunlight and then there is the most important that I love about my workspace, it is the amount of pillows I have. One long pillow, four pillows and then two throw pillows. Awww the comfort!


My creativity always starts in here.


If I could create the ultimate dream space work environment it would look along something like this. 


There is so much you can do to a office space and I think the ceilings should have some decor and design to it. I want a L shaped desk with storage and a hint of blue like this home office from Little Pink Notebook. The L shaped desk will be for my crafts and sewing. A nice organized wall and storage that stores my tools, crafts and fabric.

A nice comfy office chair similar to this IKEA LILHOJDEN swivel chair and a little bit of sparkle like this ORTOFTA Chandelier from IKEA.  A seating area by the window like this window seating Thrifty Decor Chick created would be for when I want to just curl up and relax with my laptop.

But wait there is more, this dream workspace of mine would have another section for my photography with the lighting  equipment, backdrop and camera. Then a separate desk for my computer so I can edit my photos and do my blog activities. A girl can dream right?


But until then I will bask in my current workspace, that for right now, has everything I need.

Gluten Free Coconut & Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches


I am back with another Gluten Free recipe, does coconut and chocolate ice cream sandwiches sound yummy? When your down to the last few scoops of ice cream what is left to do other than mixing it with another container of ice cream. Ice cream in general is delicious but having two kinds mixed plus in a cookie ice cream sandwich is mouth watering delicious!

My mom bought these PC Coconut Cookies from Superstore.

Take the cookies and place them upside down.

Last time we use the Naked Coconut Ice Cream from Coconut Bliss, now we will also be using their Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge Ice Cream.


Take a scoop of the Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge and put it on one side cookie.

Next, take the Naked Coconut Ice Cream and place it on the other side of the cookie.

Now, place the other cookie on top of the ice cream scoops. 

Wrap it in plastic wrap. 


And place it into the freezer. 

When you are ready for a treat, take out the individually wrapped ice cream sandwich and enjoy!

City of Links #59

city of creative dreams - city of links party

My week has been a little stressful. I decided to take two more driving lessons to gear up for my test but it didn't turn out so well. I guess driving mixed with a ton of things on my mind don't equal a good driving lesson. However, my bad days didn't take away from bringing my siblings and son tobogganing this week. It was my son's first time. He has been talking about snow for weeks now. Everyone had so much fun even in the cold. And did you watch Scandal :O How was your week? Did you check out the amazing inspirational posts and creations at last week's party? I did! Let's get this party started, shall we, Link, Share and Check out this week's features!
