THE ART OF JUST SAYING NO

I’ve been a little bit TED-obsessed lately and this week stumbled upon an interesting video that spoke volumes to me: The Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, presented by Sarah Knight (which seems to be a condensed version of her book on the same topic). In a nutshell, this TEDx talk is all about setting…… Continue reading THE ART OF JUST SAYING NO

MINIMALIST HOME TOUR

I mentioned recently that we would soon be downsizing to a smaller apartment and now the time has flown and we’re here! We have been enjoying living in our new abode for just over a month, and I really don’t think we could have made a better decision. Over the last two years we had decluttered…… Continue reading MINIMALIST HOME TOUR

WHEN MINIMALISM FEELS LONELY

Sorry for the melodramatic post title, but doesn’t it feel that way sometimes? For me it does. Not all of the time, but definitely some of the time.

I’m a big fan of all things Japanese and the quirky, personable tone Japanese authors always seem to have (or perhaps that’s just how they come across in translation). I raced through Goodbye, Things and was left feeling inspired by this…… Continue reading MINIMALISM + LETTING GO OF WHO WE USED TO BE

OUR MINIMALIST WEDDING TAKE TWO: BRISBANE

Well, it has been a few weeks now since our wedding here at home, and I’m a little later than I would have hoped in posting about our second wedding, but better late than never! Our first wedding was in France at the beginning of July, in the small village where my husband grew up and…… Continue reading OUR MINIMALIST WEDDING TAKE TWO: BRISBANE

CONFESSIONS OF A RECOVERING PERFECTIONIST

I have an interesting fact to share on the blog today (with a moral to the story): before starting this blog, I had another one. A cooking blog. I started it with more enthusiasm than you can imagine. I adored cooking and sharing my creations with other people, and did so for almost a year,…… Continue reading CONFESSIONS OF A RECOVERING PERFECTIONIST
