Shoe Life Hack

One of my friends inspired this post, well, sort of. You see, today I bought a new pair of shoes. A pair of white sneakers to be exact, super versatile, comfortable and basically plain white to go with everything. This is in replacement of the cheap white canvas shoes I used to buy relatively frequently,…

Leftover Chips and Food Waste

I’m a big fan of leftovers, any potential food waste that I can save and re-purpose the next day is a big win for me. I hate throwing away perfectly good food, aside from the obvious, it feels to me just like throwing away money. Just as if I were to take a $5 note…

Having Guests Over? Panic Stations.

I recently invited a group of friends over to my house for the first time. My partner and I immediately panicked when we realised what this actually meant.

COVID-19, Minimalism and Gifting

As a result, for most of the last…

The Vase

I was recently gifted a vase as part of my bridesmaids bouquet, it’s a lovely vase and I don’t currently own one of my own. However, my boyfriend does own one. His definitely isn’t the nicest of vases, it’s made of thick, clouded glass (clearly not expensive or great quality) but nonetheless does the job.…

Bathroom Renovation on a Budget – Part 1 – Minimalism?

So…my boyfriend and I are going to renovate the bathroom/toilet. We are aiming to do this on a smalllllll budget. Mostly because this is not a forever home, this is a starter home and it’s important that we don’t over capitalise because it’s highly unlikely that it would significantly increase the value of the property.…

Post Christmas Clear Out Part Two

And so it continues… The start of my post Christmas clear out gave me motivation to pursue this further. Now, I find myself daily trying to get rid of at least one thing from my home (whilst also not trying to bring more things in). Since beginning, I have now become re-addicted to less. I…

Post Christmas Clear Out

Has anyone else had their post Christmas clear out yet? I started mine today and it feels mighty fine. I was blessed enough over the Christmas break to be the recipient of a number of very thoughtful gifts, however whenever I bring new items into my home I like to get rid of things that…
