Weekend Link Love
Hope you’re having a great weekend! We’re getting geared up for the week, having gone out for a nice mid-day walk and getting a cup of coffee. This week is going to be our first quiet week in months - we’re usually going a million miles a minute, but we’ve finally succeeded at directing ourselves to live a bit more intentionally and make a bit more breathing room in our lives.
We have some great links for you this week - everything from capsule wardrobes to emotional decluttering to minimalist kitchens!
We love the idea of a capsule wardrobe - a careful selection of clothing that allows you to create a massive number of outfits and looks. We’re getting ready to put ours together but in the meantime I really love how Sheila from Practigal Blog explains a capsule wardrobe and walks you through how to create your own.
The official KonMari Pinterest account looks like it just is getting started. Follow for more Marie Kondo and Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up goodness!
This great article of ‘How to Become a Minimalist in 8 Steps’ by Yaz of The Wallet Moth is an excellent primer for getting started with minimalism. Key concepts: Take it slow, create a system, divide and conquer, and be intentional. Also, Yaz is also living the life, having quit her full-time job to become a freelance writer who flies all over the world.
We’re really feel the chill and damp of fall. The days are getting darker and shorter, and we know that winter is just a few weeks away. Which is where Hygge comes in.Despite sounding like a strange contemporary piece of furniture you would find at IKEA, the concept of Hygge was suggested to us by a friend especially given that we’re heading into winter soon. This post by blogger Jennifer Rizzo explains it in a great and easily understood way. After reading it, I might daresay that we’re excited for winter to come! Which is a first.
This is a great post by Lunanimafox on emotional decluttering - which is something we don’t talk about all the time when it comes to decluttering. A funny thing happens when you physically declutter - you emotionally declutter as well with the same mindset. I particularly like the part about getting rid of toxic relationships.
Hope you found these articles as useful as we have. Have a great week everyone and stay warm (especially you folks in the Midwest - sorry about the snow!!)
