CAN we have it all? I mean, I guess this is debatable, but if you ask me: NAH, yo. lol
So I’m in the process of slowly (VERY slowly) redecorating my apartment. The last two weeks I’ve been purging and repurposing things like crazy. I’m slowly trying to transition into the minimalism life, which is hard because I come from living a life of loving many things…lol. But minimalism is the life for me and aspects of it have helped me to reduce my spending on clothes and makeup. I just need to be able to calm down and learn to appreciate things without needing to own them.
Remember how I told you I’d be blogging differently this year? I’m loving the type of content I’m able to provide for you guys but like I mentioned in my changes post, it does take longer to put posts up than it did before. Plus this year I’m taking steps to getting my entire life in order–namely redoing my apartment bit by bit on a budget. Over the next week or so, I’ll be purging, accessing what can be repaired or needs to be replaced, and figuring out a recurring plan to keep my life clutter-free and minimal.

Listen, for a good chunk of my life I thought my Virgo wasn’t working right because I was one clutter-ful sucker. Like, how was I really a Virgo—a sign known for being super organized to the point where people roll their eyes about how anal Virgos can be about order—when things like where I live and the car I drive were mostly not in order. Then some years back I read something that talked about how there are “messy” Virgos who rationalize that if they can’t get something to look the way they want, they just won’t do it at all. YO—that was me for years. Still kinda me now.
It’s that time of year where your friends and family will be having holiday get-togethers and you certainly don’t want to show up empty-handed. But at the same time, you also don’t want to kill your entire holiday budget. I totally get it. Thankfully you can give fab, thoughtful gifts that won’t break the bank. Here’s a few of my ideas for fab and affordable hostess gift ideas!
If you follow me on Snapchat, you’ll know I was in the holiday spirit early this year. SUPER early. In fact, I had a Christmas tree in my office with lights and everything before Halloween even hit. I’m usually not this Christmas-y so early—I typically can wait until after Thanksgiving or at least the first week in December before I start putting “All I Want for Christmas” on repeat, but 2016 has been such an overall crummy year that I needed to break out the holly and jolly early.
