It has been nearly a year and a half since my last simplicity update, so it’s time for another one. Not much is new on the minimalism front – I’m nowhere near perfect, but at least I know where my problem areas are, and I am always trying to do better. I often think about Florie’s blog post about the Spiral Upwards when I start to feel discouraged about having bought yet another eyeshadow palette, and then I feel a little better. I have also begun to dabble in making other “green” tweaks to my everyday life.
Another suggestion that popped up a few times when I asked for post ideas on Instagram was a post about how to pack for travel. I’m usually away from home for about 50-60 days of the year, in a mix of work-related and personal trips, so by now I like to think I’m pretty good at curating a suitcase (barf). Your wish is my command, so here are all my favorite packing-related tips and tricks.
I asked you guys on Instagram if there was anything you would like me to write a blog post about, and several of you asked me to write about my indoor plants and how not to kill them. As someone who was recently a killer of houseplants herself I am happy to share with you my easy rules for not becoming a plant murderer.
I sometimes try to explain depression to people who have no personal experience with it whatsoever. Not often, but it happens. I feel like I did a decent job in my «On Depression» blog post back in the day, but I recently found a new way to describe it that I think might be understandable.
Or, well, actually, four. Let me explain.
This is the draft of a blog post that I have kept in the notes app on my iMac for a year but never posted. I recently stumbled across it again, and although it is unfinished I feel like it is good enough to post. It ends rather abruptly, but I felt like it would be wrong to add an ending to it an entire year later. I hope you still find it worth reading.
