I KonMari’ed My Apartment

If you hang out in similar blogging circles as me then you've surely at least heard of Marie Kondo by now. The Japanese organizing consultant and author wrote a book called "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up", and one by one my fellow minimalists/decluttering-enthusiasts have devoured it and sung its praises. Me, I ...

Guest Post: Kanutten’s Beauty Routine

Why I’m a Feminist

I'm a feminist... Because people tell me I'm lucky I have a man who likes to cook. Because I'm not even 30 and I have been asked about when I'm going to have children for nearly a decade.

We caught on a while ago to the fact that there is no single "Parisienne" style of dressing and that this French Voguette/Jane Birkin hybrid beast only exists in books and blogs and magazines, but it was still a fun idea to play with. All ...

On Fitness

No no, don't leave! I swear, I'm not going to tell you to boost your protein intake, or bake a 100 calorie "chocolate cake" to satisfy your sweet tooth (because god knows that shit is NOT chocolate cake), or to follow the latest Instagram fitness queen. We've had enough of that, right? We're sick of being told to "drop ...

On Money

Money is a touchy subject. You rarely discuss it with your friends and acquaintances, but yet we always have opinions on how other people save or spend their cash. I know, because I continually fall into the same trap myself. You only see the handbags and the apartment and the car and the cigarette habit, when you in ...
