Steps Towards Minimalism

 The act of minimalism is essentially, cutting the crap out of life to get to the good stuff. Minimalism makes me ask myself, what is actually important to me? Why do I own so much stuff?? I’ve come up with a few pointers that I want to be thinking about everyday….. Stop spending money on products you don’t need/want. With influencers on every social media platform showing you what they got sent to their P.O box, you may feel like you need to go out and buy that amazing new eye-shadow palette that ‘so and so’ was raving about. Before you get wrapped up in all the excitement of a new product ask yourself if you really need it, will you still be using it in 2 years time? I’ve wasted so much money on cult products that I thought were going to be life changing and actually they’ve just been added to the huge pile of beauty products that were tried and tested. Don’t be fooled by advertisements telling us ‘You need this in …

5 Lessons Learnt Living in London

I’ve spent the first 3 years of my 20’s in London working, meeting new people and expanding my mind… With life moving at what only feels like 100mph, I’m taking this opportunity to stop time for a moment and reflect… When I think of London, I think of it as my home. Home is where you feel most like yourself and at ease. It’s a crazy city and not much of it is peaceful, but whenever I go away and come back to London, I feel content. Even if I’ve had an amazing holiday, knowing that I’ll be coming back to London makes me happy. So why do I love it so much? What have I learnt? 1. There are people on your wave length Where I lived before London, I had 0 friends that wanted the same things out of life as me.
