Giving my office a new vibe with Ginger Snap

So whilst we’re on with the house renovations, once key room is definitely our office.

As I do a lot of writing, blogging and freelance work, this means that I’ve got to have a space which feels and looks great, as it really helps my mood and creative juices flow 🙂

When Ginger Snap approached me and asked me if I wanted to review one of their new mini neon lamps I was thrilled! I love all things Ginger Snap, their products are always super quirky and really good quality.

You’ll probably have seen on a few peoples Instagrams and in fact, in a couple of my previous posts that lightboxes are huge at the moment and really add another level to your photography. As I have a lightbox already I wanted to try something really cool and funky.

Ginger Snap Flamingo Light

Oh hello Pink Neon Flamingo Light!

I honestly couldn’t believe how much I loved this when it first arrived! It totally adds a different vibe to my workspace. If I ever feel a bit down or like I’ve hit a rut with my writing, I switch on my little light and it completely lifts my mood.

It’s super lightweight and doesn’t take up a lot of space at all, which is great as usually I have products and writing stuff strewn all over my desk.

The light is powered by a USB plug so I just pop it into my laptop, but if you want it on without using the cable you can, as it takes batteries too. Which is great, especially if you want to take it anywhere with you!

Within their new tropical vibes collection, there is also a cactus, star and a rainbow light. I’m not going to lie, I quite fancy getting the cactus so I can create my own tropical paradise on my desk!

So what else is left to finish in the office?

Well aside from painting it completely, to get rid of the last remaining purple in the house, we also have to get the window replaced, which is going to be a big job!

I can’t quite decide whether I’d like a sash window like we’ve got at the front, which we’ve recently had replaced, or if we should go for something different.

We’ve been looking at Three Counties as they have loads of window special offers on at the moment! Plus with their offer you can also buy now and pay nothing for up to 12 months, which seems like a good option as windows aren’t cheap.

I’m leaning towards getting a sash window again, but as it’s at the back of the house, I’m not sure it matters? We live in an area of natural beauty so I suppose it would work better if we stuck with traditional 🙂 plus I’d like a nice window to look out of when I’m working away!

I think the last remaining thing will have to be the flooring as we still cannot agree on that haha!

Do we go carpet or oak wood flooring? Help!

    What a fun lamp!

    I personally love oak wood flooring! You could style up with a realllyyyy nice accent rug – plus you can constantly switch it up to change up the space, whereas with carpeting, you’re stuck with one thing for a while!
