"Hello, Ferdie's readers! I'm Isabela, I blog at fusels.com and this is my personal altar. It is super simple but everything was meticulously planned. I hate clutter and I like to have everything nice and minimal, so I projected my workspace to be as neat and organized as possible. It is mostly white, and that's because I concentrate easier and generally feel better surrounded by this colour. My bedroom walls were previously bright red and I find that even though they looked a lot more beautiful, they were quite tiresome in the end of the day.
In the top shelf I keep my make-up mirror and lightning (always handy for the times I need to photograph some swatches) and also some artificial flowers that give the room a pop of colour and cinnamon scented candles to energize the atmosphere. In the blue post-its, I write the blog posts I'd like to publish next, and whenever it's done I just rip it off the shelf and substitute for something new. This way I always feel motivated to keep my blog updated and don't ever miss an idea!
On the desk, just my basic home-office gear. My Macbook Pro 13" – where I blog from, my Kobo e-reader for the times I need to take a break, a little black notebook where I track my impressions on products I'm reviewing, some coloured pens, glasses, home phone, and products I should photograph for posts.
I also do most of my projects for college in this desk, and sometimes there are watercolour pencils, oil pastel, Canson sketchbooks and all sorts of stuff cluttering it. In those days, I just cuddle up in my bed with my notebook and blog my mind away."
