10 Tips on How to Tidy the KonMari Way

As I've mentioned in my previous minimalism video (and post), I've been embarking on the minimalism journey to simplify my life (and to do something about my anxiety). One of the books that has impacted me is The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. Marie Kondo created a decluttering system to help you tidy up your home... and keep it that way.

I've been implementing the techniques in her book, as I work on my own clutter. Here are some of the things that I've learned on how to tidy the KonMari way.

White Boyfriend Blazer

Switching it up a bit with a crisp white boyfriend blazer instead of a black one. A white blazer is more appropriate for me during summer since it gives the whole look a more relaxed and airy feel to it. You can easily incorporate a white blazer into your outfit especially if you need a little bit of warmth during the chilly summer nights.

Minimalism: Why I started

This is a little bit different than my usual beauty and fashion posts. I have briefly mentioned this topic here on my blog, but this will be the first time where I'm dedicating a post about it. At first, I've translated the concept of minimalism into my wardrobe simply because I liked the aesthetic. And now, minimalism is carrying over into my lifestyle. Never did I think I'd be attempting to live a more simplistic life. I am, in fact, a borderline hoarder and shopaholic. I found joy in buying things. Things that sat in my closet because it was too pretty to use. Until one day, it became a little too overwhelming for me to handle, and it started to put a damper in my life.

Back-to-School Drugstore Makeup Tutorial

Back-to-School has officially begun for some, so I've created a makeup look to help you look your best (or at least awake) in school using drugstore makeup. Here's a look that I would wear to school (if I were still in school). I created a simple look that's easy to recreate even if you're in a rush in the morning. When I was in college, I mainly used drugstore products when it comes to doing my makeup. Being a college student, buying makeup can be a bit of a luxury. But with good drugstore makeup options these days, you can enhance your look without breaking the bank.

Summer Getaway

J.Crew top (petite size on sale for $25) / Old Navy Shorts (similar) / Market tote bag (similar and this one has cute palm prints) / J.Crew slides (20% off with code LOTSTOSHOP) / Forever 21 straw hat (another cute option)

I'm sure dressed like one, but I haven't had a proper vacation in awhile. I'm seeing a few of my friends going on tropical vacations right now for the summer. I'll just have to live through them vicariously for now through their social media posts.
