I’m not the person to go crazy on the minimalistic lifestyle. I’m really envious of the people who can do that but I’m not one of them. That being said I would love to minimize my possessions and subsequently ways in a reasonable way. What I found the best and easiest ways to start is by using all of my products before I buy new ones. Even if I don’t love them I have challenged myself to use them up before going out and buying new ones. This way not only I save money but it is also an incentive to make smarter choices when buying products. I’ve started with my skincare products and hopefully my makeup.
Do you have any tips about how to reasonably minimize your belongings? Let me know in the comments below!

Hello, beautiful readers!
The holidays are a joyous, exciting, but stressful time. With shopping, baking, and other activities to complete, there are several ways to minimize your holiday stress.
1. Set a shopping budget
This is the first step in my holiday shopping routine. While spending money throughout the holiday season is unavoidable, there are ways to control your spending. Plan ahead, review your finances, and develop a realistic budget for gifts.
2. Make a list, and check it twice
Creating a shopping and ‘to-do’ list is beneficial to keep yourself on track before Christmas. A list enables you to determine who you are shopping for, what you plan to buy, and organizes other activities to complete.
Forget the idea of perfection
Don’t stress about trying to be perfect. Focus your energy on the people in your life and enjoy the quality time you have during the holidays to spend with them.
Hello, beautiful readers!
I use a planner faithfully while in college or working. It tracks my due dates, appointments and other important reminders. Here are four of my favourite tips to help you use a planner too!
1. Use one planner, if possible
It can be difficult to maintain both a personal planner and school-based planner. Find a planner you can use for both personal and business/school. This will keep your due-dates and other tasks organized.
2. Check your planner often
It is important to check your planner daily. Doing so will ensure you know the tasks/reminders you must complete each day. Keep your planner in a spot that is highly visible. I keep mine in my purse, for example.
3. Set aside time each week to organize your planner
Set aside time to review your planner each week. Ensure this time period is uninterrupted to maintai concentratio while you review.
