Today I am so excited to share with you a little way I cheer myself up when it comes to hard work and lots of studying – a darling desk setup! Whenever it’s time to focus and really get things done, I find it infinitely helpful to surround myself with as many fun and colorful accents as I can. The outdated library and that 1500 page textbook you’re reading are depressing enough, in my opinion, so why not brighten up the little that you can? (Unless 1500 page textbooks already float your boat, of course…) I’m especially grateful for these desk pretties now that finals are right around the corner. Lots of late night studying ahead for this girl!

My one-stop shop for adorable accessories of any kind is Design Darling! Fair warning – you’ll find everything from monogrammed gold leopard notecards (yes, those exist) to pink tassel pillows to gorgeous greek key scarves and much, much more in this perfect online boutique. Mackenzie Horan, the embodiment of darling herself, has the best eye and is always adding the sweetest knick knacks you never knew you needed to the shop. Plus, everything is 20% off today with the code MANYTHANKS! Like I said, fair warning. Take a look at the pieces I use to cheer up my studying below. Psst… there might be a giveaway at the end of the post!
