MOST RECENT

Skincare/Haircare/Makeup I’ve used up/not going to use since my “beauty spending” ban. After I use up my stash, I am going to focus on finding a more natural diy skincare routine. #useless #minimal #minimalist #minimalism #goodbyethings #organize #organized #organization #lessismore #donate #recycle #reuse #repurpose #theartofdiscarding #konmari #konmarimethod #buyless #buylesslivemore #buylesschoosebetter

We were glad to have visited @cairns_aquarium as normal we avoid animals not in their natural environment, but they had a point as to show people how many amazing creatures are in our oceans which we would be lucky to see in the wild. More importantly they are educating people about the importance of thoughtful action for those endangered species. It was great to see them stressing the importance of a plastic free ocean. Also we saw some good citizens picking up plastic rubbish from near the beach in @cairnsaustralia too. How is your #plasticfreejuly or #plasticfreelife going? Watch out for our blogs to see some not to be missed spots while visiting the #farnorthqueensland

Keep it minimal 💚

I am an anti-consumerist but I am no minimalist. Every year I buy less and less, yet I still have lots of things. Vintage clothes, books, crystals, plants etc.

I recently watched “Minimalism - a documentary about the important things.” and really would recommend anyone watch it. It tackles the issue of the “trappings of the consumer culture we’ve built our lives around” and the fact that we assign far too much meaning to our possessions, often neglecting the important things.

With the rise of “conscious consumerism” I fear that we are still trapped in the mindset of consuming too much whilst making sustainable living inaccessible to those less privileged. We feel better about ourselves because something is ethically made or is a cool new accessory that makes our waste-free lives seem trendier and more Instagram worthy. No matter which way you look at it. This isn’t the answer.

When we try keep it minimal, it can apply to purchasing as little plastic as possible. It can apply to buying less and making things last. It can apply to using less water and electricity, spending less time on our devices and all round just living a more sustainable and purpose-driven life.

I am not suggesting you should give up most of your earthly possessions - I won’t necessarily be doing that (though I have already begun to declutter). But I’ll certainly be considering how I can be more minimalist. I realise that the stuff we own and buy doesn’t only have the potential to create an impact on the planet but also can potentially detract from our ability to be content with ourselves and live in the moment.

When it came to fashion purchases, I used to buy too much.
I didn’t think ethically about my style spending.
I mistook quantity for quality.
My closet was a clash of various selves.
But I have gradually come to embrace my simple moon-inspired style.
I’ve started to embrace myself, my values.
Now I purchase more intentionally and enjoy the things I own.
And funnily I’m enjoying style more by letting go of fashion.
I’m living more mindfully, celebrating what’s in front of me.
I’m in love with simplicity.
I am working toward greater simplicity.

Live Softly on sunny days ☀️...time to reconnect with nature and take it slooowwww.... slow design is design that takes time in its making, is designed to last, gets even more beautiful with wear and honours artisan processes in its making - resulting in products that have been hand touched and that carry stories. We hope that also means they will become treasured items that are looked after, mended and reused for a lifetime... #slowdesign #slowfashion #buyless #buybetter #wabisabi #unique #repurpose #handmade #wool #felt #etsy #etsymakers #plasticfree #mend #plasticfreejuly #socialenterprise #nepal

Frugality is a term that has become synonymous with living a simpler life for me. Prior to this journey, I was disorganised with my spending, and would have associated ‘frugality’ with miserliness or rationing.
.
Now that my days are infused with a goal of simplicity, I find myself easily drawn towards the concept of frugality as a tool to use my resources (money, physical resources and time) as effectively as possible, and with a view to reducing waste and being able to use my resources the way I want! .
Hence, frugality has become a way of life. It’s a way of taking stock of how I use these earth-given resources and has taught me to be intentional in everything from purchasing of goods, to food prep, to excessive activities that are wasteful. It’s definitely driven by environmental and economical factors, for me.
.
A while back I was tagged in a post to reflect on how I save money every day. Minimalism has simplified my approach to spending so I’m excited to share here again. Some of my daily frugal decisions include - I take leftovers to work for lunch 💰 I make my own coffee at work instead of buying from the coffee cart (I byo coffee grounds from home and only purchase when on sale!) 💰 I wear a capsule wardrobe 💰 I wear less makeup💰 I have hit the pause button on homeware spending and use what I have, with appreciation for its functionality 💰 Our frugal and healthful food choices include reducing meat consumption (not for everyone perhaps but works for us) 💰 I firmly believe that simplifying your life can simplify your finances. I’d love to hear how you save your resources to help you live the good life 💕

Blending with the background in @theclosetlover x @dreachong amunra midi romper. This romper came in three colours and I made a colour swap THRICE before I decided on the eventual colour. Neutrals are still the best.

I’m definitely a fan of fast shipping, but I’m going to work to take small steps like these suggested ones to reduce my carbon footprint. I hope you will too!

Expedited shipping is convenient, but it means your packages aren’t as consolidated as they could be. This leads to more delivery cars and commercial trucks on the road and more packaging waste — and frequent free returns multiply the problem. (📷: Getty)
