Been rocking the fanny pack since we got back from London Tuesday night. Honestly, part of the reason is that Im too lazy to take the time to go back to my unorganized purse. Living out of this fanny pack and a carry on for nine days forced me to simplify some things, only bring along what's necessary. I really liked that feeling and am I no hurry to carry something because of "what if." That's a pretty liberating feeling! 🌞 #perspective#liberating#travel#europe#simplify#relax#feelsgood#london#uk#rome#italy#Paris#france

If your business is not "Art" then you need to learn new strategies and make your "advertising" focus on building your brand.
Advertising without strategy is also "Art", beautiful to see but not useful for your business.
Simply, use the right strategies if you want to build your name

Prepping for new member packages...as well as restocking my stepdad's stash, since he gave up his Chapstick for my DIY version. 👌👍 Feeling like Oprah up in here. "And a lip balm for you, and for You, and YOU!" 🌿🌿I've had several ask, so here is the recipe! There are many variations of this, but this one works well and people consistently love it! You can always add a chunk of color or use mica powder for shimmer, add a little cocoa powder, etc!
3 T Organic Coconut Oil
2 T Organic Beeswax Pellets
1 t Organic Shea Butter
1/2 Non-GMO Vitamin E Oil (I used the oil from 6 caps)
10 drops Peppemint EO
5 drops Lavender EO
Melt first 3 ingredients in a double boiler, wax melter, etc. I used an 8 oz glass Pyrex measuring cup over my steamer. Stir often(a chopstick works great for this!) Remove from heat when liquefied. Add Vit E and EO's. Line up one row of balm containers and fill with a steady hand. Move quickly, as wax will start to harden right away. Let cool and cap. Makes 10-12.

My tips on creating a capsule wardrobe are saved to my stories.
But more important than the “how” is the “why.” Having a capsule frees up time and energy. But for me personally, it also helped me break the cycle of shopping as a hobby. I am INTENTIONAL when I make a purchase. When I do shop it’s for something I’ve identified as a gap in my wardrobe and I research quality and price. By doing this 90% of the time, I don’t feel bad when I make an impulse purchase (like the mauve hoodie from TJ Max that I’ve been living in). Also I love knowing my style and what works for my body and skin tone. I have learned I can like something without needing it in my closet.
In design scale is everything. The scale of every piece is in this foyer makes it my Friday perfection post of the day. The big front door with sidelight windows allows this foyer to fill with natural light. The gorgeous corbel table is such a smart choice. It has tons of character and is perfect for the recessed niche. The mirror hung above the table as well as the trim carpentry is absolute magic. And the accent lamp and accessories are a perfect blend of function and color. Finally the one thing I’d change would be to add a jute rug. [email protected] add another natural element when guests enter to remove their shoes. The dark stained on site hardwood floors ground the room and echo the character in the other wood based design elements. This foyer is an absolute 10. #ldesignsdublin#fabulousfoyers#naturaltextures#simplify#welcomehome

do you loathe countertop clutter as much as I do? and when you got a small kitchen, the clutter can be even more of a problem. welp this week I found a super simple solution for a space on our countertops that had become the bane of my existence with, excuse my language, all of the baby shit. SWIPE if you wanna see the not so pretty before!
I used a simple tray that I scooped up from @thecontainerstore to corral the bottle warmer, formula and daily vitamins and this small nook instantly looks more put together and gives me so much peace. 🙏🏻 even though there really wasn’t much on the countertop before the tray, it is visual clutter which can drive any neat freak a little crazy. 🤪

I'm not to this point yet...but I'm closer than I was yesterday. I've been questioning if I should keep posting on this profile...I mean, who am I to be giving any sort of advice or sharing my opinion? Well... nobody I guess 😆 although I have been through some things, I have changed my life in some significant ways and I enjoy sharing on Instagram. 🌿
I am not perfect, far from it, and I worried that because of my imperfections I didn't have the right to be sharing anything in regards to minimalism, simplicity, capsule wardrobes and budgeting. Then it dawned on me this morning, the people I follow and have serious Instagram crushes on are all flawed. Every single one of them has made mistakes and what I like most about them is their transparency. 🌿
So I'm done caring what people MIGHT think. If those people don't like what I share the unfollow button is easy to find. But I have decided I'm going to share a bit more about my journey with minimalism, working towards a debt free life and my all time favorite, Project 333. Feel free to follow along 😀 or don't! Either one is okay with me. 🌿 #imperfectlytidy#cluttercoach#closetcoach#minimalist#minimize#simplify#simple#simplicity#simplifyyourlife#simplifyyourhome#minimalistmom#simplehome#simplelife#wantless#spendless#priorities#project333#limits#limitations#simplemom#beyou#doyou#daveramsey#budget

❤ is getting your hubby new socks because they are his fav... simplifying life is getting the whole family black socks so there's no dealing with dingy whites or matching pairs!!
. What's your favorite lifehack ?
I had to sit down and be honest with myself the other night, and I’m going to be honest here, too.
This past month has been hard. Tharin went back to work after months of being home with us and I really dropped the ball on the expectations I have of my capabilities and schedule, which hurt because I tend to be really hard on myself to succeed in a certain way.
But instead of allowing myself to wallow about it, I sat down and wrote myself a “bare minimum daily schedule” and it goes something like this: - make beds and brush teeth
- read five books to the boys
- pray for ten minutes and get fresh air for the same - take time for bedtime prayers and songs
- clean kitchen once and one room in the house
I feel lighter already. Do you need to relieve yourself of unrealistic expectations? Make a bare minimum schedule with me! I figure on any given day I’ll either do more than I expected and feel like a rockstar or do just the bare minimum and feel like I at least gave attention to some of the most important things and feel good about that. Winning all around. Someday I want to follow a pretty structured home routine or rhythm, but now isn’t the time and I need to take that with a measure of grace.
Soaking up that still quiet moment before the troops wake. ☕️
