Let’s start today’s topic with a little survey: How many times have you stumble upon a “How to create the most perfect Instagram feed” type of posts in the last 2-3 months? 10, 15, 30? How many times have you been told that your Instagram feed had to look perfect to attract followers? Now here is my last question: who says anything has to look perfect?
When it comes to capsule wardrobe, you can easily find many guidelines and rules online to help you get started. The most popular one people follow is the Project 333 created by Courtney Carver. The “rules” here are to create a capsule wardrobe with only 33 items and wear them for 3 months. It sounds pretty challenging because the 33 items include clothes, shoes, bags, accessories and jewelry. But i honestly think it can be super fun to join in on such a challenge especially if you need rules to make it work for you…
One of my goals for this year is to consume way less and much more consciously. At first i was going to challenge myself to a full no-spend year but then i started analyzing what i had and realized that i was going to need to buy a few things this year. After my closet declutter i was missing a few key items like a good pair of jeans that actually fit me, a pair of open sandals for the warmer seasons and a whole new underwear set because mine were just too old and damaged.
When becoming more aware of how the world works and how most companies operate, you often find yourself regretting things and feeling quite guilty. Guilty to have turned a blind eye when you already knew something was really wrong (like after the Rana Plaza collapse, most people just “forgot” myself included) and regrets to have spend your hard earn money on products made by people who could potentially die making that product for you (and enriching very bad people in the process).
When deciding to live a more ethical and conscious lifestyle, you can easily feel overwhelmed by the amount of things you need to change in your daily life and habits. The truth is that in our modern world, it is impossible to live an ethical life 100% of the time. So i think that when you truly decide to make changes in your life and live more accordingly to your values, it’s very important to ask yourself what’s really important to you and what compromises you are willing to make.
As someone who has the chance of working from home and alone these days (which i personally love) i have the freedom to organize and do everything the way i want them done. It’s a chance but to me it’s also a big responsibility because if things aren’t done or done wrong, it’s my fault and no one else’s. Here is a little sneak peek at how i plan and organize my work to make each day the most productive it can be!
Unfortunately, i’m the kind of person that often wakes up anxious and for the longest time, i purposely didn’t want to create myself a morning routine. Basically, waking up was a hassle and i wanted to quickly start the day and move on, you know? But back in January when i decided to pursue a happier and healthier lifestyle, i decided to give happy mornings a try!
First off let me just start by saying that even though i wrote the first two post about animals in French (post 1 & 2 are here) i think from now on i’m going to write mostly in English on my blog…
