Living With Less // Simplify My Routines

Happy December, y’all!

First of all, I can’t believe it’s December already, and that this year is almost over! Second, HALLELUJAH! And third, how cute is that alarm clock?? lol…I digress!

Today I am excited to delve into the final pillar in my Living With Less plan: to simplify my routines. I really need this, now more than ever. Not that I’m a particularly high maintenance woman, but lately I’ve been feeling a little lost. I’m hoping by simplifying my routines and bringing everything back to basics that I can reboot my outlook too.

100DC2 // The Halfway Point!

Hello! Me again!

First and foremost, I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to my BFF, Francesca! Welcome to 36, darlin! What a year this has been, and the best is yet to come for you, and for Pat and your little family! Love you!

Besides commemorating my bestie’s birth, this day also marks the halfway point of my second 100 Day Challenge! Haha!

Full Time Capsule Wardrobe

Happy Wednesday, my lovelies!

If you joined me last week you know I wrote all about my plans for whittling down my wardrobe (HERE), and how I also want to simplify getting dressed by creating a capsule wardrobe. Today I’m going to jump a little deeper into the details.

I had investigated how to implement a capsule wardrobe in the past, and the idea intrigued me. I’ve even half heartedly attempted it once or twice before. But I didn’t want to have to recreate the capsule every season, as many other capsule evangelists will suggest. So my compromise was to do a full time, ongoing capsule. Essentially, I’m curating a minimalist closet that works in a cohesive way all year round.

Living With Less // Whittle My Wardrobe

Hello, hello!

Confession: I’m often overwhelmed by the contents of my closet. And dresser. And bins under my bed. And the shoe cubbies that my TV sits on. And then figuring out how to make any of these items into an outfit I like. The truth is, I have way too many clothes (and shoes!), and in an effort to live more minimally, it’s time to start whittling my wardrobe (which just so happens to be the next installment in my Living With Less series)!

100DC2 // Checking In After 25 Days

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Last week I took an impromptu blog vacation that coincided with a vacation from my 9-5. Didn’t do anything fancy, it was just a house and life admin kind of vacation. Sometimes you just need those, ya know?

Today I’m back with a check-in post for my second 100 Day Challenge. Four weeks ago I shared my outline of goals (HERE), and I honestly can’t believe that those 25 days have already gone by. Today I just wanted to share my progress with you, and to also say I probably won’t be continuing these challenges in the new year… we’ll see!

But without further ado, let’s crack on!

Living With Less // Improve Organization

Good morning! 

I have struggled to write this post for quite some time now. No, actually, scratch that. I’ve struggled to start this post for quite some time now. I didn’t even get to the writing part.

This post was originally scheduled for mid-July, then the end of July, then early August, but I just had no idea what to write about, so I kept pushing it back farther and farther until finally it landed here today. Hello! I’m ready now!

100 Day Challenge #2

Good morning, my lovelies!

First of all, Happy Autumn! In this weird world we live in, who thought this day would ever actually come?

I recently found myself wondering what I would do with my “free time” after ALL of my home projects were completed (nevermind the fact that home projects are never really complete). Would I just take it easy? Or would I find something else (that is, an optional something, not something that had to be done out of necessity) to do? The answer to both: yes.

It’s A Wrap! My First 100 Day Challenge

Hello, hello! Long time, no write!

I’m back after an unintentional, month-long (plus) hiatus! And just in time to recap my first 100 Day Challenge. Today is Day 100!

In case you missed the intro to my 100 Day Challenge, you can catch up HERE. And I shared 25-day-point and 50-day-point check-ins, HERE and HERE, too. The gist: I chose nine goals, over three broad categories, to tackle over a 100 day period.
