When you're a massive hoarder like me, storage is key. When you're a hoarder who likes her home to look amazing, stylish storage solutions are even more important. So today I wanted to bring a little storage inspo to the table. 

I actually cleared out loads of stuff I'd been keeping since I'd say, 2011, this weekend, from vases that I've never used to an old lampshade I didn't need to keep. Despite three bags (and a nearly-full fourth) getting packed up and taken to the charity shop, I'm still left with magazines I don't want to throw out, stacks of books - basically loads of things which I just can't bear to part with right now, hence why storage for my spare room/come future office is a factor I need to consider.

Today I wanted to take you on a little tour inside the stylish office of venture capital firm Greycroft Partners, which I found on home and interiors website My Domaine. The reason is because offices seem to be on my mind alot recently. I think an inspirational workspace can definitely help your production levels and if you work in a clinical or sparse environment, then it can be reflected in your mood in the office.

My Monday Goals post last week proved to be a popular one so I thought I'd post nice and early this morning despite it being Bank Holiday here in the UK. Whilst most people are in bed with a hangover, I'm here with my *smug little self writing four new goals for the next seven days. (*Please read smug as didn't go out last night so watched X Factor, cried at the end of it and went to bed).

But first let's see how I got on with last week's goals. First up, a massive fail in the fact that I didn't get to the gym once *embarrassed monkey emoji* - and the worst thing is, I was off work for the whole week on holiday so I literally had no excuse. I did however start on the decluttering process and filled three bags full of bits for the charity shop and once large bag full of rubbish. And that was just the spare room. I'm going to carry on doing that until I completely rid of all crap I don't need, use or want. I didn't get to design my new prints, but I did end up doing 8 print orders this week which kept me nice and busy and my blog's Future Plan is well underway. I even went to M&S to buy a brand new notebook. Every new plan needs new stationery.

Despite not managing to stick to some of my goals this week, it definitely gave me the kick up the arse I needed to sort bits out I've needed to for months, so I closed the week feeling a little more accomplished than I would have done if I hadn't set them in the first place.

Anyway, let's get on to the brand new week...

Interior styling is one of my favourite things to do, and although I definitely don't claim to be an expert, I'd like to think I have a bit of an eye for what works well together. Today, I wanted to show you how to style your bedside table. Or at least, how I style mine.

"I have received product from Mikado for this post. It is an entry to the Foodies100 Stick out your personality challenge sponsored by Mikado.  Mikado are unique, long & ultra-thin crunchy biscuit sticks coated with smooth milk chocolate, with one end left bare so that you don’t get sticky fingers when eating. Mikado comes in four delicious flavours: Milk, White, Daim and Choco King, and stocked in all major supermarkets at an RRP of £1.39. To find out more, visit https://www.facebook.com/Mikado.uk"

I'm a complete chocoholic so when Mikado got in touch to see if I wanted to work with them on their "Stick Out Your Personality" campaign, I was like hell to the yes. The aim of the campaign was to show your personality through a selfie and a blog post so I decided to show off a typical girls response to chocolate - "I'm supposed to be on a diet but I really, reaaalllyyy want some." The thing is with these little biscuits, they're only 11 cals each so today I wanted to show you three ways you could enjoy your Mikado and still stay firmly on your healthy eating plan.
