Work From Home Mom



Work from home/stay at home mom is my most favourite title yet!

I am so excited to team up with WeWork to talk about my current work space and what my future dream work space would be. WeWork is a coworking company that offers shared office space all over the world, and there're interested in learning more about what goes into the ideal work space. 

My role has many facets but the most important piece is mom, so for me, the fact that my little office is in my home is a dream come true for this point in my life. 

I work when it works for my family. This normally means, early mornings, evenings and nap times and it's kind of perfectly imperfect. There are days when I am playing on the floor with Luke and my mind is racing with creative ideas for my business as a makeup artist, blogger and YouTuber, and it's hard to just play when my computer is right there. I try to keep everything in order by always having a note pad and pen in the kitchen, ready to jot down ideas and my phone is never very far either. I have my computer at my desk but the amazing things we can do on our phones these days means that my office really is wherever I am. 

My desk area is special to me though, it's designated as my space, I have it decorated as I like it with items that are meaningful to me. I have one plant in my whole home that was recently gifted to me by my mom. It sits in the window in my work space as a reminder that she is my number one fan always supporting me in what I do.

My pictures are mostly of Tyler, Luke and I, they are my motivation, I want to make them proud. There are also a few old pictures. One of me with my sister Sara and our two friends Melinda and Holly when we were kids. I like this picture because it reminds me of my childhood self, a wild, free little girl, a piece of myself I try to stay in touch with regularly. Then there is a picture of my Grandma Glenna, she is no longer with us but I love her beauty in this photo and it reminds me that I am part of a history and a story that is so much bigger than just me.

As you can tell, this current work space I am in is very personal. One day I would like to expand my little corner into an entire room or studio space for Heather Audrey Lapier Industries to expand and grow but for now I want to be in my home, in my little corner and often simply on the floor with my son.

I hope your work week is filled with productivity and accomplished in a space that fuels your creativity and allows you to be who you are.
