Lifestyle | My Journey to Minimalism

Less truly does equal more. 

Hello Loves,

today on the bloggie I am gonna talk about this idea of Minimalism and my journey so far. A few days ago I stumbled upon a blog called The Minimalists and it was actually by complete accident. I was looking for ways to declutter my closet and it was the first site to pop up. I honestly think that that was a sign from God, because I have found becoming a minimalist is the best way to declutter anything and everything in your life overall. But anyway back to the story... so I scrolled throughout the blog and decided to Google more on this ' Minimalism Life' and came across Zen Habits and that's how it started. My life has always been very busy and I am getting very drained by it all. I feel as I am now making my transition into senior year then college, this will help me keep in mind what's actually important. Plus, I know in college everything is gonna seem expensive and I want only things that I need in my dorm, closet and life.

Now like it says on the Zen Habits blog, " There's no one right way", and I completely agree with it. Everyone downsizes differently and what may be less to me isn't exactly less to you. I officially started my journey June 26th but I want to officially officially start today, July 1st because I didn't fully understand and didn't really see it as a lifestyle then. I just threw out and gave away a lot of clothes from my closet. Making this a lifestyle FOR ME means decluttering everything. My hair regime will be simple, my food that I intake daily, my fitness, my clothes and my room (because my mom will kill me if I took the rest of the house, lol).

So I am starting a Minimalism Monday here on the blog. Every other Monday I will create a new post on some tips to help you if your interested or it will simply be an update on my journey.

So far I decluttered my closet, room and bathroom. I went through EVERYTHING, bookshelves, drawers, my jewelry box... literally everything you can think of, it's been touched. My room doesn't look empty but it's definitely not as pretty. My mom is gonna take me room shopping in a few days just because it's long overdue for a room update and my new theme will be green, white and dark brown. I really want that nature feel. Now I know you guys, "Your suppose to have less Brie, why are about go shopping???", well I really want a simple pretty look in my room and I've been wanting to have that theme for a while.

Next thing I am decluttering is my hair products and evaluating my food. Next week I will update you all on that.

I really do encourage you all to check out the sites above and and search Minimalism on YouTube!!
