Bedroom Talk

TGIF! It's about time. I know, I know, I don't have a "real job" at the moment, so why am I so excited that it's Friday? Well, for those of you who are wondering, I don't just lay in bed all day.

My bedroom is also... *drumroll*... my office! For now, it's got a little desk-like setup, and it's where I do all of my blog shenanigans, my workouts, and of course where I relax and sleep. Quite the all-purpose room! So I thought I'd let you step inside my little space.

I try to sit down each day and work a regular 9-5, and most of the time I put in weekend hours, too. Blogging is a full-time job, y'all! I think that getting up, getting dressed, and acting like I'm going to work each morning helps to keep me motivated and on a schedule. If I'm making a recipe for Street Cred, I'll have my tripod set up in the kitchen, usually in the afternoon for the best lighting. But otherwise, this is where all of the editing, writing, and blogging takes place.

I really like the calm quiet mornings when I'm alone. I tend to get a lot more accomplished when there's no socialization or noise to distract me. I'm a bit of an introvert, so I love the coziness of my little bedroom office, and the soft morning light when the frost is melting off of the windows.

I love candles. There will always be one lit when I'm working - and I'm obsessed with coordinating fragrances with seasons. I've even written a satirical essay entitled "The Proper Use of Scented Candles," just for fun. I just find them to be calming, and warm the mood, and make my workspace and living space feel super cozy. This week it's a "Festive Spice" Febreeze candle...Which reminds me, I need to go candle shopping because my current one is getting a little low.

I couldn't showcase my bedroom/office without this guy. Doopy sometimes contributes to my posts by walking across the keyboard of my computer while I'm writing. But for the most part, he just keeps me company and reminds me when it's breakfast and lunch time.

And at the end of the day... there's a fluffy white bed waiting to snuggle up to. With Doopy, of course. And sometimes Steve. But mostly the cat.


  1. Thanks for letting us in a little bit.

  2. I always get my best work done in the morning too! Great post, I love hearing about the workflow of other bloggers!


I love to read all of your comments! Thanks so much!! <3
