Kristin Gets A Desk Makeover • LadylikeMay 01, 2020
-So, remember that time I showed everyone all the stuff on my
desk? Well, you all had a lot of opinions about how I should probably do something about it; Well guess what? We're doing it, baby! It's time to renew the
desktop. (hinge squeaking) (upbeat music) - Hello, I'm Kane; I love to decorate, I decorate my apartment, I decorate every time we change desks; I think it's nice to be zen, focused and work somewhere in peace. I feel more productive that way, you know? - I would never have considered it; I'm just saying, well, I'm moving into a new space, I'll ruin it in three weeks. - I saw a video where you revealed your desktop;
I was a little surprised. - You just didn't think I had the capacity for such chaos? - No, you are so elegant and fashionable all the time. - I'm lost at sea. - While watching the video, I was already planning different boxes and how to label them. - Oh my gosh, I love labels! - Which are your favorite colors? - I love bright rainbow colors, like pinks, purples, greens and blues. - I think color-wise, I had a chance to look at your Instagram, and I'm going to base your favorite colors on that; What do you spend the most time doing at your desk? - I actually don't spend much time at my desk because I'm shooting all the time. - Where do you do your makeup? - I do it at my desk, usually before shooting;
I'll make a full face; that's one of the main activities I do at my desk. - What is your relationship with your things and your desk neighbors? - First of all, I have two really great desk neighbors; Freddie sits to my left and Mike Rose sits to my right; Mike definitely has a lot of words to choose from. I have ADHD; I get very distracted by movements, sounds, if I'm at my desk working, my headphones are on and I also can't throw away any notes or cards, so when someone sends me a note or a card, I keep it forever, and it also makes me anxious a lot when I lose them.
My main problem is that I can't throw things away, I tend to think that everything is useful and I get very anxious when I have to get rid of something that I think could be useful in the future; I have a bear alarm on my desk; there are no bears. Actually, hoarding is something I've struggled with my entire life, it's not something I'm making fun of in any way; It's me, it's happening. It is difficult for me to separate myself, I feel joy from this object, I feel fear of what will happen if this object is not in my possession. - We will do it one step at a time. - Okay (laughing) - So, I'm going shopping, we'll meet again next week and start that
makeover. - We got this, high five! (slaps) - So we stopped by Z Gallerie just for inspiration. - What is this? - It's a storage box, and that's where you can keep all your precious cards and gifts that other people give you, and it's in this cute little box, but it's also hidden away. - Oh yeah. - Yes. - Then you can't see inside. - Yes. - What would these be for? - This would be hanging behind the chair, and it's very soft, so it adds a little bit of comfort to your workday, and we went with Ross. - What did you find? - I found this lamp;
The lamp was one of the first items I found, it stood out immediately because it was so Disney. - Yes. - And Kristin loves Disneyland, and then I went to Target; This plant, I already had in mind, the big, green leafy plant was based on a dress exactly like the one Kristin had on her Instagram. - And so, what is this? -This is for her new monitor, so I bought him a little box to put it up, so his posture is good, and then he could put things in that box too, so we went shopping, we spent a whole day. in various stores and online, but before you set it up, you will need to organize this. - So since we filmed the desktop video, the Ladylike team moved the desktops, so it's a different desktop, but the problems are still the same. - Have you tried the KonMari Method? - I have not tried the KonMari Method. - So the idea behind this is that you hold it up and say, "Does this spark joy?" And the spark is very important;
You will do that with each item and if not, you will donate it. - That's going to be difficult; I guess my question is: am I trying to figure out why I'm afraid of letting go of objects? - If it doesn't bring me joy, I would just let it go. - Well. - Because it will bring joy - To someone else, potentially. - Oh, I didn't think about that. - You know, so instead of leaving it there, you can donate it to the LGBT Center or to someone homeless who might need that shirt more. - Yes, if you love something, don't keep it in a box for 10 years. - I'll let you do this and I'll come back once it's all done, yeah. - Yay (laughing) for a long time, I didn't have much;
I was very broke, I had a lot of debt, I was struggling a lot and the thought of throwing things away was embarrassing and besides, everything could be reused. If something had a hole, you sewed it up, if something had too many holes to be a shirt, now it's a rag; I would never throw things away, because I was too afraid that if I threw them away, I wouldn't have them anymore. And what I've learned is that that's not a really healthy way to live or have a desk; I mean, I think I'm always going to have a lot of anxiety about getting rid of things;
That's something I have to deal with, it's something a lot of people deal with, it's just a fact. Alright, I have an hour to do this, which means I probably have half an hour, because I'm going to spend half an hour talking and talking; This is my Rockford Peaches hat; I'll stick with this. Ah, this is my skirt from my custom skirts video; I have to stay with this, ooh, this is the sound grenade that could scare away a bear; I do not need that. This is a scarf and I don't know who it belongs to, so goodbye; that's just garbage, which can go in the trash;
Okay, I threw out two things, here are two condoms, do these condoms give me joy? No; Fred, do you want these two condoms? - Yes (laughing) - Okay (laughing) here are the socks from our Christmas party gift; this is a nordstrom gift card so this is real money so this stays oh this was also sent to me by a fan; This is my tape measure, that is, as the most valuable thing I own, I can't tell you how often people ask to borrow my pink tape measure. Here's an eye palette that no one has ever used; that can go in the beauty closet, maybe I want it?
I do not do it? (groans) No, I have to move on; Oh, some SD cards I've been looking for; one third of a laptop stand, two thirds, and (vocalizing) I don't know, but I saw it, though, oh wait, here it is; It was on Mike's desk (laughs) (dramatic music) you know what? I do not need it; Do I need six month old candy? No I don't, I can get rid of it (growls) it hurts; Is this a 50 Shades of Gray pencil? This is a lipstick I hate, this is a lipstick I love, safety glow stick, I don't need it;
I'm throwing out a surprisingly large amount of stuff, okay, these are Freddie's vaginal wipes. (laughs) - Everyone
getsmad at me for leaving things everywhere, but actually, some people are worse. - They're communal vaginal wipes (laughs) - I always need phone chargers, this brush, this makeup, oh, my lip balm, my dry shampoo, my makeup mirror; I have the only makeup mirror at Ladylike that is still lit, and my laptop and charger, which I also need to do my work. Okay, I guess I'm done, now what? What do I do now? - Then you will go to work somewhere else. - Wait, am I going to work somewhere else? - While Kane redoes your desk. - Wait, I'm going to go- how long am I going to go work somewhere else? - TBD. - T-B-D?
I don't like that D; That's the first D I've found that I don't like. - Very good, where to start? This is my favorite thing, it's the lamp; I think lighting is always key on a desk, lighting and artificial plants are my two favorite things; the flowers draw attention, if you look around her office, there are very few plants, so this makes Kristin's desk stand out a lot. These are more lights, the theme is Disney-garden; If you know Kristin, you know she loves everything Disney, she also loves Goldfish, super simple and cute; the candle was just a random find, we're not allowed to light a fire in the office, but I feel like it fits the theme perfectly, because it looked like something straight out of The Little Mermaid.
As Kristin says that she loves cards from her and little keepsakes from her, this way she can add things and they will be in one place, and then she can also separate herself from the desk neighbor of hers, because she says that she
getsvery distracted from it. Kristin had a small mirror, and since she is in Ladylike and she puts on a lot of makeup, she now has a real vanity. -And she lights up? - Yes look; bam! So the reasoning behind the fur is that I feel like the chair elevates the feel of the desk;
She feels much more elegant with her skin, so now we will go through her things and organize everything; Freddie will help me label all the labels to put on the boxes. So if you can help me, Freddie, categorize, you probably know what it does better than I do. - Mm-hmm. - Like paper, clothes - Yes. - Random trinkets - So this whole box is clothes - So, we'll keep all the cards, but we'll choose the ones that match your decorations the most and place them; Are these makeup wipes? - No, these are vaginal wipes. - Oh. (laughing) - Really? - Yes. - I didn't even know they made them. - Oh yeah;
Every time I label something, I feel like every spelling seems strange, even if it is spelled correctly. - Yes, same. (sighing) - I'm out of breath; Who knew tying a bun could leave me breathless? (upbeat hip-hop music) - One step. -UH Huh. - Okay, one step. - Last step. -UH Huh. - Very good, now we are on the flat. - Oh, we're on the ground. - Okay, Kane will guide you. - Here, take your chair. - My chair? Oh my God (laughing) - Now you can open the blindfold. - I'm ready (panting) Oh my God, look how cute!
This is crazy. - What do you think? What is your favorite thing? - I don't even, oh my God, I look at Goldfsh (laughing) oh my God, there are plants and there is a cork board. - It's a bit of a Disney theme. - Is this also the theme of The Little Mermaid? - Yes, that's right, yes. - Okay, this is Minnie; OMG this is so cute. - But you told me that your phone runs out of battery very often? - It runs out of battery a lot (gasp) now it's charging! Wow; I love Goldfish, I am very messy and never have a full battery; what's here? - Open it. - My God, there went all my trinkets. - Mm-hmm, so your cards and stuff can go in this cute little box. (panting) - So they can be out of the way and out of the way;
Oh my god, look at this! - Slide over. - This is all yours. - Wow, I'm actually taking up more space than I should, but okay, wait, is this where the makeup goes? Look what? My tape measure has its own little dot; Wait, we also need to talk about this chair. (laughs) - My beautiful bear chair, and I love how furry it is. - This reminded me a little of Aladdin, the tassels. - How nice; I love that, what? Can you touch it and does it do this? - Mm-hmm. - This is out of control. -Now I'm jealous of his desk. - I'm jealous!
Hope for? - Oh, so this is a small living room. (laughs) - Wait, this is a living room? - Yes. - Did you find this? This is so crazy. - Yeah, so when we have - Team meetings - Is this our office? - Yes, they can lift an ottoman. - Oh, you can enter my office on the wall. (laughs) - And you can put things here. - For storage, which we all need, so the Internet, you yelled at me and I listened to you, so now my desktop is beautiful, thanks to Kane. - Yes. - I'm so excited, thank you so much for this (sighs) I'm at peace, so Kane gave me a desk
makeover, and it was undeserved.
I thought he was going to get a pair of rainbow binder holders, and then when they took the blindfold off, it was like (exclaiming) it was so beautiful; Honestly, having places to store things makes all the difference in the world. I think not having storage and well-organized spaces is really what gets you into trouble. -In our first meeting at the desk, I could sense that she was eager to let go of many things, but I am very proud that she was able to do it; I had a lot of fun, I love having the ultimate desktop and optimizing it for your own personality, and I'm so glad I got to share it with Kristin. - Kristin's desktop makeover, ruined lady, improved lady. - We have merchandise!
