I was recently sent a press release about a brand new magazine about to launch here in Oz, and I was so inspired, I was one of the first people at the newsagent on launch morning requesting it. messenger Collective is like no magazine I’ve seen before. The subtitle is game changers | thought leaders | rule breakers | style shakers and that really sums up the magazine. Unlike many other magazines that are full of fluff and mindless entertainment (that I still enjoy!), the stories in this magazine were truly thought provoking. From an in depth exploration of the three (yes, just three!) billion dollar conglomerates behind most of the fashion industry, through to profile pieces on various entrepreneurs, as well as a fascinating spotlight on the Etsy head quarters, this was a magazine that took me nearly a week to read through properly. This is not a mag to flick through while watching reality TV!
The publishers were kind enough to let me share this article about kikki k (my favourite stationery store. ever.) as a teaser, including some of her fantastic tips for organising your workspace. If you want more of these great stories, you can head to the messenger Collective website here for a preview of their current issue.
KRISTINA’S TIPS FOR YOUR WORKSPACE
- Keep things you use regularly within arm’s reach. Anything rarely used can be stored away in an organised manner.
- When paper comes into your workspace, remove what’s unnecessary right away. Action things that need to be actioned and sort the rest into logical categories so you know where to find them.
- You should never underestimate the motivational power of colour. Everyone is different but I just love the simplicity of white – it looks beautiful and brings calm and control to my workspace.
- If you’re using notebooks, pens, lists and other bits and pieces every day, why not make them beautiful? I love our new ‘Enjoy The Little Things’ collection – bold colours, very Scandinavian designs and positive quotes.
- Try incorporating magazine clippings, artwork, photos, quotes and personal mementos into your space to make it as appealing as possible.
- Seek inspiration – visit websites and blogs, or even attend an Organisational Workshop which we’re proud to offer at kikki.K.
