Niches aren’t for everyone

I can’t count the amount of times I’ve read blogging advice posts. Free downloads of ‘how to build your blog’, filled with audience targets, email capture, guest posting and most of all, defining your niche. A niche is a focus, a subject that your blog will be based around. Sports, for example. Fashion. Cooking. Er,… Read More Niches aren’t for everyone

Clearing out – Spring Decluttering

Clearing out – Spring Decluttering  It’s spring! Finally! And along with the better weather and hints of warmth appearing in the longer days, I seem to have woken from the sluggishness of winter along with the season. Feeling more ‘spring-like’ means I’ve been looking at life with new eyes…and along with that, comes the inevitable… Read More Clearing out – Spring Decluttering

Shopping for Comfort

  Shopping for Comfort It’s hard to quit that shopping thing. To walk out, willingly, and detach ourselves from the main principle underlying our society, rejecting the status quo and creating a new normal for ourselves. It sounds far-fetched, even radical. Is this what we’re doing when we start to embrace minimalism? To an extent,… Read More Shopping for Comfort

Replace: minimalism beyond the clear-out

  Replace: minimalism beyond the clear-out  So, decluttering. Becoming a minimalist. Simplifying. The minimal movement is becoming more and more popular, as we begin to feel the effects of ‘peak stuff‘ and yearn for something more than another shopping trip, another credit card bill. Minimalism, with its image of empty, shiny counter-tops, statement art pieces… Read More Replace: minimalism beyond the clear-out

Importance

  As autumn hits us in full flow, I find now is the time of year I like to sit back and take stock of all the things flying around my mind. Sometimes, as the seasons wind onward, the colder air turns our thoughts to the end of the calendar year, and of course, the… Read More Importance

Return to minimalism – a journey

  Return to minimalism – a journey. Over the past few years, I’ve had quite the journey with becoming minimalist. From those tentative few days, opening my wardrobe and staring desperately at the collection of high heels balancing precariously on shelves higher than my head, to now, settling into a sort of soft, simpler life,… Read More Return to minimalism – a journey

Ethical Beauty Products – Minimalist Make-Up

Since following a more natural lifestyle, it’s become more important to me to use natural beauty products. Over time I’ve managed to replace my make-up with natural alternatives. It’s hard to find a product that’s cruelty-free and natural, a lot are either one or the other! Here are my current favourites. I’d love to hear… Read More Ethical Beauty Products – Minimalist Make-Up

Project 333 review: quarter1

So, my first 3 months of #Project333 is coming to an end. I started on 10th of January 2016, and since then I don’t think I’ve fretted about what to wear one single time! As someone who’d regularly throw open the doors of her closet and wail ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’, staring in frustration… Read More Project 333 review: quarter1

After-effects of buying nothing

After-effects of buying nothing Last year, I challenged myself to buy nothing. Once you get used to buying nothing but food and the odd deodorant, your brain seems to re-wire into a state where it seems strange to buy things. I certainly felt this way, beating myself up for any slip-ups I made. Luckily I… Read More After-effects of buying nothing

Make your friends jealous

  Make your friends jealous So at work we listen to commercial radio. Sifting through rails of clothes, preoccupied by fluffy jumpers and size cubes, something seemed to nag at my attention. An advert, something I usually manage to tune out, was niggling at the periphery of my hearing. I zoned out of jumpers and… Read More Make your friends jealous
