Grace’s Desk Obsessions

I’m super excited to introduce you to this week’s Desk Obsessed guest! Today is all about my sweet and talented friend Grace Atwood. Grace and I have been online friends for years, and last year we finally got the opportunity to meet while we were both on the L’Oreal League.  Of course, we instantly hit it off and had so much in common with our love for the South and beauty products!

Grace is one of the O.G. bloggers and has created an incredible niche for herself in the industry. Not only does she have the best book and skincare recommendations, but she also has a shoe collection that would make you blush! If you haven’t been reading her blog TheStripe, you need to be.

Anyway, below are some fun Q&A’s about how Grace keeps her desk and stays on track. I hope you enjoy this one!

1. Is your desk more OCD organized or a little more chaotic?
OCD organized. I have problems, and can’t function if my desk is a mess.

Coffee. Lots and lots of coffee!


3. Do you work from home, an office, or a shared space? 
 I work from home!


4. What’s your go-to, pen or pencil?

A pen, stolen from the Beverly Hills Hotel.


5. Are there snacks or treats within arm’s reach of your desk?



6. What are you listening to at your desk these days?
Lately, it’s been the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack, which is a fun throwback. I always have music playing!

  3. My Coqui Coqui Coco Coco candle from Tulum


8. What daily planner (or app!) do you use?
A mix between a simple notebook (for lists and daily to-dos), Google Calendar (for appointments), and Google Sheets (for organization).


9. What’s your go-to resource?

Google, Pinterest, the stack of art books on my coffee table.


10. What’s 1 random thing you always have on your desk?
 A pad of paper to jot down ideas.


End Q&A

Thanks, Grace!

Desk Obsessed is a regular feature on my blog and a great way to get to know other creatives and designers. I hope you enjoyed it and check back next week for another interview!
