My Office // Q and A

 "hustle" and "be brave" prints: crystal faye {2 for $18}

This little corner in our house has a long way to go, but it is still a space that I am becoming to love more each day! It's so nice to have a designated spot to work and get things done. I'm thinking about doing a big gallery wall with big empty frames (with a couple filled) and an inspiration type board on this wall, but sometimes go back and forth on it. What do you think I should do?! Decisions, decisions. I guess we will see what happens this winter when it's too cold outside to do anything and I feel like experimenting around the house. ;)

I thought I'd play along in a little Q&A today, feel free to copy it and share it!

1. What is the most played song in your music library? Because the most played song is a little shameful (Wrecking Ball-Miley Cyrus, anyone?), here's the top 5: Demons-Imagine Dragons, Dark Horse-Katy Perry, Drake-Hold On, We're Going Home, Timber-Pitbull (great workout song!), Stay-Florida Georgia Line.
2. What is your favorite thing about your current occupation or job, whatever it may be? Saving my clients money! (on their insurance) 
3. City or country? I'd have to say city overall by a hair, but don't count me out for loving being in the country. I love love love fishing, horseback riding, fires, the woods, all of it! See, now I'm confused.
4. What is your coping mechanism after a really bad day? Bad days are bound to happen, but I really try to not classify any day as "bad". There is always something good in every day...you just have to dig deep to find it sometimes. My bad days are typically the ones where I'm just feeling down on myself, or I feel disorganized/stressed out. My best coping mechanism for that would be to step away from what I'm doing and spend time alone. I am one of those people who just needs a certain amount of 'me' time. My favorite way to change my mood around quickly is to get a good workout in at the gym and sit in the sauna afterwards to unwind and relax. Endorphins can turn your day around instantly!
5. Favorite item in your closet right now? Leather pants, this jacket (just because it is so warm!), and of course these shoes.
6. Skill or craft you still want to learn or work on? Photography! I really need to learn how to do more with my DSLR, specifically shooting in manual.
7. What is your most precious keepsake? My love notes/journals that my Mom wrote and my engagement ring.
8. What’s at the very tip top of you holiday wish list this year? I actually haven't put together a wish list yet, but maybe a wine bar or a new handbag. 
9. What’s your favorite spot in the city you live in? All of our walking/running trails, Easton, Grandview, Short North (to name a few).

  1. Can you tell me where you got those frames? I've been looking for plain, simple black frames for some prints I recently ordered and am having no luck!

  3. You have officially inspired me to get started on the office at our house. It is a built in that is in our bedroom and I have been putting it off now for the last 5 months and I am pretty sure the Mr. has about had it with all of the boxes I have just piled up on it. Your office is so pretty and I absolutely love that rug you have in there. We also just bought a car from a cousin and they sent a B&BW air freshener in and I had to text her to see what the scent was because it is heavenly, it is the same as your candle! I never even thought about buying it in candle form. Now you know where I am going when I get off work today (:

  8. I don't know how the hell you keep your desk so organized. I wish I could attach pictures because mine is a hot mess.

  9. Where is your desk from?! I've been looking for something similar to put in my guest bedroom to avoid my working space to continue taking over the couch/living room!
