5 Quick Tips To Help You Stay Organized

Monday, July 9, 2018

Hey Everyone!  I just wanted to come and share a few quick tips with you on organizing your life. Sometimes making that first initial step to a Better you is difficult and hard to stick to but practice makes perfect. Right? So keep going at it and organizing will be as simple as opening a bag of chips....yummy Funyuns! Anyways here's a few quick tips.


1. Make sure you have a place for your stuff at home. Whether it's a basket or drawer just have a designated place. Shoes need a shelf or a small cubbies. Or nicely lined up on the floor is great also. 


2. Whenever you are thinking of putting something in the wrong place. STOP! And make the effort in putting it back where it goes. It saves you time and a mess for later on. Always think to yourself, I'm going to feel much better entering back into a room the way I left it, clean and organized! 


3. Never go to sleep with clothes, shoes, paper etc. laying around. Do a quick pick up at night so when you wake up you will feel refreshed and not stressed. If you have stairs leave a basket at the bottom of the stairs for items that need to go upstairs and incorporate that into your night time routine.


4. Make a to do list and FOLLOW it, trust me they help. It can be simple like . Clean up dog poo. Wash the dishes. Sweep, take out trash. Just write down what you have to do and check it off as you complete it. I'll be doing a more detailed blog post about a to do list so stay in touch for that.


5. Last but not least. Just know that being organized leads to a more productive and stressed free day. 

I definitely have a lot more things coming and in the works. That I'm really excited for. Yay! I hope these few tips help you out. 

July Goal + Ongoing Change | No Meat | Plant Based

Saturday, June 30, 2018

I'm doing it guys! I'M GOING PLANT BASED!! A few months ago I started my lifestyle change with food and I was doing great, and somewhere down the line I fell off. I started eating burgers and chicken again and I've gained so much weight. But that's all changing because I doing it all the way through this time. For the entire month of July I going plant based. They say it takes 21 days to break a habit, so if I can get through 21 days I'm sure I can carry this out for hopefully the rest of my life.

Why Am I going plant based?

I have been so stuffy and just draggy ever since I stopped eating plant based. I want to have energy again and I want to see this weigh drop off. I don't think meat is bad I just think it works well with others and for me it doesn't. There are so many other foods that contain protein and nutrients meat gives you and I'm so excited to share them

My mother has been a vegetarian for over 20 years now and has so much experience with vegetarian dishes and foods and what can keep your body healthy and strong.

I am so excited for this journey in my life and I can't wait to take you all along with me. I'm still eating butter, cheese eggs, milk because I think they are an essential part of growing and sustaining your body.

My Minimalist Journey/ Am I A Minimalist?

Saturday, June 16, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope your all doing well. I wanted to start off by talking about how I found out what minimalism is. and then go a little more into do I consider myself a minimalist?

I was searching on google and pinterest and youtube looking for white simple room ideas. I was definitely looking for a change visual wise. I felt I had pointless things in my space that just accumulated over time. I was already into organizing and de-cluttering so when I was searching I wanted simplicity.

I came across a youtube video by Matt D'Avella who is the director of the documentary minimalism. I watched the minimalist film maker video and just wanted to learn more, so of course I watched the minimalist documentary on netflix and I was shocked.

I guess I never realized how much we just waste, whether it's time, money, objects, prducts etc. We just waste a lot. After the documentary I started looking up more people and learning more in general about our space and health and environment. So for the past year I have been working on my life and figuring out the important things and cleaning out my space and trying to (emphasis on trying) to limit the things I buy to things I need or love.

I wouldn't say...

I'm not a minimalist, because I consider myself one. I think there are so many ways you can be a minimalist it's not just about the space you create around you, but also about what you are eating and thinking and how you live your life. Me liking and creating a simple space and choosing a more simple clothing style that's just my personal preference. I still love and always wear stripes and flowers because it's my life and there is no set way to live it.

My space

Is my sanctuary, and It's very important to me.My space is where I wake up and rest and read and live. I've incorporated real living plants that create oxygen and clean out the air and white walls because they symbolize purity and happiness for me. I am slowly coming into more of an understanding of everything around me and how it affects me but also the world around me.

I am so excited to share more of my life and space with you and have you come on this fun journey of life with me.
