Bathroom Reno // The Inspiration + Phase 1 Plans

Happy Wednesday!

Last week I announced my first ever 100 Day Challenge (HERE), and that Phase 1 of my long desired bathroom renovation would be part of it! Hooray!!! I’d love to be able to do a full blown overhaul right now, but the truth is I can’t afford it at this moment. So while I save my monies for the bigger items on my list, I’ll tackle Phase 1, which includes all of the tasks I can do (and feel fairly comfortable doing) without getting a contractor or any tradesmen involved. While I officially started the 100 Day Challenge on Monday, I haven’t actually begun the bathroom reno quite yet. I think it will have to be more of a weekend warrior project. But I promised to share my plans today, so here I am!

Can I Konmari?

How goes it, my lovelies?

Today I bring you another Living With Less post. In my last post, I asked “Is Less Really More?” (HERE) and today I’m asking (myself mostly), “Can I Konmari?”

I haven’t read her book, but I watched the first season of her Netflix series. I was intrigued and on the verge of attempting her method last January. But I feel like I may not be able to keep to the rules…

Living With Less // Is Less Really More?

Welcome friends! Today is a new day!

Last week I introduced a new series to the blog called Living With Less. In the intro post (HERE), I spelled out the five areas I plan to focus on to achieve a more minimalist lifestyle. I’m not going for bare wall minimalism here. Maybe more like a classic bohemian minimalism… is there such a thing? Basically, I don’t want to live in a museum, and I don’t want my house to feel sterile. But I don’t want it to feel like a furniture store either. I want it to be pared down but cozy. I like things, I still want things… just not as many things.

Living With Less // An Introduction

Hello my lovelies! 

Today I’m starting a new series on the blog called Living With Less. As I mentioned in my 20 Goals for 2020 post (HERE), I am interested in living a more minimalist lifestyle. I will never be a minimalist in the truest sense of the word, but I certainly want to reduce the amount of things that I have and be more disciplined about what I bring into my space and surround myself with. So today I will be sharing a bit of an intro into what, and how, I plan to tackle on this journey to a more minimalist life.
