Minimalism and non attachment

I over heard some people discussing non attachment. In all its non attachment glory, the people were discussing how liberating it is to be free from their stuff. It was inspiring! I’ve even been that person before, talking about how light and energised I feel with ‘less’ or ‘less attachment’ to things. But what I … Continue reading

A Clutter Free Kitchen

Give me clear surfaces and clean lines in my home any day. Having only recently figured out how to cook at the same time as moving to a house without a dishwasher, I’ve found keeping the kitchen clean and clutter free a bigger challenge than I expected. Especially since I was used to sitting down … Continue reading

Are You Always Cleaning?

You Are Not Alone! Further good news … the culprit has been caught and is currently being charged … the culprit is: Stuff! I recently went to someone’s house and there was so much stuff on every shelf and window that I wasn’t surprised it was dusty. My house would probably be dusty if I … Continue reading

Spiritual Cleanse with Sage

Spiritual Cleanse with Sage

Okay I’ll be brutally honest… I always thought all that hocus pocus about sage being a powerful spiritual cleanser was a load of rubbish. But yesterday I was proven wrong. I went to see a lovely friend of mine who said she thought I needed a spiritual cleanse and asked me if I was up … Continue reading

Declutter your fairy tale self

Declutter your fairy tale self

I love reading blogs and one of my favourites is Miss Minimalist… As I was browsing her blog I came across an amazing post called Declutter your fantasy self. Where she rightly points out that sometimes a lot of the junk and clutter we accumulate is linked with who we feel like we ‘should’ be … Continue reading

You can’t take it with you when you die

Be ruthless and brutal in your decluttering. Remember you can’t take it with you when you die so be seriously selective about what you want in your life and home. Creating beautiful spaces for you to enjoy in your life involves being selective about what you want in them. Most of us don’t start with … Continue reading

Detox your external influences

Detox your external influences

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty easily influenced by commercials and advertisements. All of a sudden I find myself thinking, yeah I need some coco pops or hmm… I could do with a new mascara ‘I’m worth it’. Rarely does a commercial remind you that you need toilet paper and you think yeah … Continue reading

Have Less Stuff

Having less stuff is totally contrary to modern consumerism but isn’t it an inviting idea? Radical changes are always interesting to watch or read about but in my experience most of us like a more step by step change when we have to do the work ourselves. Let’s consider the bathroom. Here is a simple … Continue reading

What have towels got to do with living better?

Towels, towels and more towels! Most people have loads of towels stashed away in their airing cupboard! And more significantly most of those towels are faded and worn out – right? When did we turn into towel hoarders? More importantly why are we hoarding faded towels? Inside my mind living better doesn’t involve faded towels. … Continue reading

Dogs & Minimalism

Dogs & Minimalism

Okay so I’ve wanted a dog… forever!!! When I was a child I used to pretend I had a dog (convinced that if I looked after it well enough & was sure it was real, then it might appear). Now I’m an adult I could choose to have a dog. I know the exact type … Continue reading
