What is this blog even about?

Have you ever compared yourself to a book character or felt inspired by a book or film, even the people around you? So much so that you want to change your entire life? This blog is that for me, it will be my book, I will write it's chapters. It will be a part of me on the internet. For me the meaning of a Coral Sunset or any sunset is a fresh start. The act of the sun rising is one of the most spectacular in the world it suggests that there is a time for fresh beginnings. Whereas a sunset which is this blog is named after is the sunsetting with hope for a brand-new day.
People say be the change that you seen in the world. So if you are reading this welcome to my my fresh start , for me this blog will be my change, if by reading this blog it makes a change to your life then great. If not thanks for even being bothered to read and look at my tiny part of the world (or internet) and have a nice day! :) 

New Desk Tour

Hi guys welcome back to my blog. I am sorry that I have not posted for a while, my life has been so busy. Anyway on to the post.

Recently, have got fed up with the size of my desk and the space that I have on the top is limited. As part of my Spring Clean and sort I thought I would show you my progress with my desk. So I decided to get a bigger desk with a bigger surface area to spread myself out more. As a uni student I often find myself spreading my notes and books everywhere so below is a picture of my old desk: 

 Malibu desk from Argos £49.99 (sorry not the best quality as it a copied version of the original)

Now below is a picture of my lovely new desk that I got of gumtree for £40. It has a glass top so will not scratch my as easily. 

New Desk: The desk is an old version of the Ikea Micke desk if anyone is interested.

 Under my desk is a small bedside table that I bought from Argos, it was £24.99. As the desk did not come with draws I felt it needed some. These are really useful for storing notebooks, paper and files. As the desk is so big, at the back I have also stored my sewing machine, laptop cases and past uni work in a box.For the new desk my first thought how to organise the surface area. So using some old  Christmas card boxes I have made containers to hold my spare stationary. In the left hand corner is my mini bureau which holds all my pens, pencils and small stationery.  To make the Christmas card box look better all I did was to cover the outside with wrapping paper and then tape it on. It's a very easy DIY.


I also have a few more containers along my desk holding stationery, as well as my favourite dog notelets holder he is so cute, here is a picture:

Last but not least is my lovely desk chair from Ikea. It cost £72 but was well worth the cost as it is both comfy and gorgeous.

All in all my new desk organisation has really helped improve my life, as I can do my work so much easier, with more space and storage. 

Hope this helped to give you guys inspiration on decluttering your office space

All the Best
