My office was feeling a little drab the other day so I decided to jazz it up... but on a budget - here are my top five tips!

1.) Candles: I bloody LOVE candles (rolls eyes... like you guys didn't already know that!), I think every time I 'pop' into Primark I come out with at least two new candles! I'm a big fan of scents and I love sitting down with a cup of coffee and my favourite candles burning to catch up on some work, there's just something so calming about burning a candle on my desk! I'm a HUGE fan of the Primark ones as they range from £1-£5 so if you want to light your candle everyday then it's not going to cost you a bomb to replace them! Other great shops for affordable candles: H&M | Matalan | Next
2.) Pin board: I wrote this post a couple of months back on how I made my own notice board in my office for less than £15 (check it out here) - I was browsing on Pinterest and found a copper pin board that I LOVED... what I didn't love was the £60 price tag, so I decided to make one for myself - head on over to read how! I love having a pin board above my desk, I can pop on my invites, inspiration and goals and it's just a constant reminder for me to look at everyday! I also collect postcards or items everywhere I travel which I pop up on my board to remind me of the incredible places I've visited!
3.) Flowers: I bloomin' love flowers (no pun intended there!), every week I head to Asda on a Monday morning and buy myself a cheap bunch of roses or flowers for £3-£5 (they often have discounted bunches too which are beautiful!). I really love having flowers on my desk, they smell beautiful and are stunning to look at... oh, and they make great blog props too for those photo sessions! A quick and cheap pick me up to brighten my week!
4.) Prints: A couple of months back I collaborated with an incredible and SO very affordable brand called Desenio (check out my post here to see which prints I ordered!). I absolutely LOVE buying prints, I think they're a great way to jazz up your office - especially when they start from £5 like the Desenio ones! I also try to pick up some kind of print/poster or picture when I'm travelling and have started to form a collage on my wall!
5.) Affordable stationary: I popped into Primark the other day (I did a HUGE haul on what I bought HERE), and picked up a copper wire stationary tray for just £6!! It's so handy for keeping in my magazines and paperwork and is a great budget addition to my home office... PLUS it helps me stay organised and *kind of tidy which I'm absolutely ALL about!
