I work from a variety of places: my sofa, my dining room table, my balcony, my best friend’s living room and the office in my partner’s house. My favourite place to work is the balcony, which I do whenever the sun is shining. I can see nature, sky and cows from there, and it makes me feel elated that I am my own boss and am lucky enough to live somewhere so spectacular. Read More

My desk doesn’t have a lot on it because I find it very distracting having lots of things on my desk, so each item I have is carefully chosen. The most important items: my laptop, a TV that came with my flat which I use as an external monitor and my diary, which is on a holder I got from my great aunt (it must be fifty years old but is still in perfect condition!). I’ve also got some pens and pencils in a mug my friends gave me before I moved to Barcelona (so it makes me happy every time I see it) and a coaster for coffee, which I always need. Read More

My workspace changes often, depending on my circumstances and where I am in the world. It could be a cafe, a co-working space, a hotel room, or occasionally poolside. At the moment I’m back home in England staying with my parents, so my current workspace looks like this:

What kind of freelance work do you do, and what made you decide to do it?

I’m a freelance copywriter, so I craft content in the style and tone of voice that fit the specific brand. I work with various clients (but mostly within the travel industry), from luxury hotels and tour companies to expat groups and hostels. Read More

My workspace varies depending on my mood, sometimes I’ll work from the garden, other times the sofa but predominantly I work from my home office. It’s only just been transformed from a junk room into an actual office, so it’s still very much a work in progress, but it’s getting there! Next on the purchase list is definitely a proper desk chair, because the wooden stool I’m currently using is not the most comfortable thing!

My office mainly consists of a large desk (which was made using a kitchen countertop and some filing cabinets to maximise storage space) and a storage unit which holds the products which I sell on my travel blog’s shop. I like working in the office because it’s quiet and as it’s a dedicated room everything is very organised. On the right-hand side of my desk I have all of the stuff pertaining to my blog and e-commerce business, such as envelopes, stamps and stationery, and on the left-hand side, I have everything pertaining to my freelance work such as stationery, paperwork and my graphics tablet. I’m a firm believer that a cluttered space equals a cluttered mind, and because I’m so easily distracted having a dedicated space for everything helps me keep my focus when working. Read More

It only has essential things, like my laptop and headphones and some other little things for inspiration. As a freelancer, you don’t need much to start working. I love my almost bezel-less laptop, it stands out even if you have a MacBook Pro. 🙂

What kind of freelance work do you do, and what made you decide to do it?

I’m not doing any freelance jobs at the moment, but I was designing presentations for an expat website. It was interesting to read articles about expat life, being an expat myself. I decided to do this as my previous job didn’t bring me enough money for extra life comforts. Read More
