I can’t believe it’s already 2017, like where did the year go, and it’s also been a whole month into the year so let’s celebrate some of the highlights.
We re-watched the entirety of the Harry Potter series in three days, and I read the whole series. So it’s been a lot of Harry Potter this month.
2. Full-length mirror
Only us fashionistas will appreciate the full value that is full-length mirrors.
No more only seeing half my outfit in the morning.

Hey readers, I was thinking about books the other day and realized how much my taste in books has changed over the years. I’m sure you can relate when you just get so bored with a genre and are willing to read any other book in any other genre just so you don’t have to read anymore fantasy or crime, etc.
Well that’s how I’ve been feeling.
For the longest time it was all fantasy novels and YA and it has gotten so boring and predictable, that’s it’s really annoying now to try to read.

Since discovering the issues with the fashion industry and its environmental impact I have tried to become more aware about the clothing I buy. Through my research, however, I came across a documentary called The True Cost that is about ethical fashion and the fast fashion industry as it stands today.

Continuing on from last week, I wanted to discuss the stigma surrounding minimalism. I know some believe that only a certain type of person can actually live this way, but it’s not true. Minimalism doesn’t have to be some big switch; it can help in the smallest of places (unless you really want to makeover your life). Minimalism takes time, for me it took the progression of my depression to realize that I needed to do something different.
Some causes I have noticed though are periods of stress, or being overwhelmed and the feeling of not being able to think clearly. This is because of clutter (and I’ve done the research for all of this too, clutter does affect how we think and how well we think, there are certain environments that people can work better in compared to others), and this then flows into minimalism, and therefore having less stuff to worry about.
Some examples of areas as to where to start could be the kitchen. I know that counter space these days seems to be quite limited and physically have less pots and pans and utensils to worry about can help with that.

Minimalism’s true definition, I believe has been skewed through social media and its sometimes terrible way of filtering through ideas that are different from society. However, with time and a little effort to understand, Minimalism is in essence a rudimentary lifestyle that anyone can adopt.
In my view, minimalism is focused on living an honest and fulfilling life, one where the little things matter the most, the minuscule moments that bring us joy, to learn a greater appreciation for the things we have and for our family.
