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.
A while back I was approached by a journalist who was going to write a small piece about minimalism and consumption habits for OBOS magazine here in Norway. Naturally it was shortened quite a bit when it ended up in print, so I thought it might be fun to publish my full original answers here.
It has been a little while since my last blog post, so today I’m updating you on how my minimalist/simplicity journey is going these days.
