Nothing says hipster like a smart pair of glasses frames….. Especially if their vintage… or vintage looking… or clear frames…. or wire frames…. Oh 🤔, I guess you just HAVE to have glasses…. OH YEAH, and if you’re a guy – you HAVE to have a beard too Anyway (I digress, I digress) The thing […]
There’s an epidemic happening right now. Millions of people are catching on to the fact that we’ve went through the past 2 decades accumulating more stuff than we need. Persuading marketing campaigns shouting to the masses to buy this product and buy that product. Remember those flashy ads promising you that you’d be like Justin Timberlake if you bought those Calvin Klein jeans? Or what about the first Apple iPod commercial? How Iconic was that? Do you have an Apple iPod, and phone, computer, and iPad, and… Do you see where I’m going with this? Nowadays we have more stuff than we need and can account for, but fortunately – we’re gaining awareness of this. We’re putting aside those useless flashy products and going back to what is necessary, and not overkill. We’re appreciating functionality and quality over quantity and fads. We’re making a switch to owning less and experiencing more, identifying the essential and eliminating the unnecessary. So, here’s 17 ways to do exactly that:
It’s more likely than not that you know someone who has decluttered their life recently. Weather it be that they sold their stuff, bought a van and travelled or just moved into their new home. Or even simply that they just adapt to the mindset that less is more – in all aspects of life. The minimalist lifestyle covers quite a few core aspects of your life, which then boils down to a deep awareness about you know, materialistic things and subtracting things that aren’t necessary. And, as Christmas rapidly approaching it can be hard to know what to get that is something that you know they would truly love, in their everyday life. Something useful and functional, or maybe not even a “thing” at all! The lifestyle has an understanding of experiences being worth more than just “things,” and at the same time, an enormous appreciation for products that last. Good quality products that limit the use of other “add on products.” So, with those two avenues to go down, it can seem a litter easier, but sometimes it’s hard to sift through good or bad quality products or to decide what type of experience you want to give them. So, we’ve done some of that searching for you and here are some of the best gift ideas to get a person who has adapted the minimalist lifestyle!
It’s quite clear your personal style is something that its completely unique to you. No one is going to have their same favourite necklace that they always wear or their favourite vintage sweater from their grandmother they pull as soon as the leaves start to change. But, sometimes it can definitely be a statement, and unfortunately, misunderstood by some. Dressing up at the wrong event can cause people to judge you as snobby, or dressing in sneakers and jeans at a formal event can definitely be taken as a sign of disrespect.
Ahhh, the excitement you get when heading out on another trip. The thrill of hitting confirm as you book the flight, the child-like wonder you have when thinking of the next detestation you’ll explore and the bliss you have when thinking about new experiences you’ll encounter. Traveling is an exciting experience in itself, but so is planning for your trip. Nothing beats packing in the most perfect manner, and therefore being able to enjoy your trip to it’s fullest. You want to avoid being over or under-dressed, or forgetting important necessities, but sometimes there are just so many options to take it’s a little overwhelming.
No one… everyone…I don’t really read fashion magazines, but I do love style.com. It’s cool to see what the designers are doing each season, but that’s where following current fashion trends ends for me. Style, in my opinion, is much more personal than wearing whatever’s current. It’s a great skill to be able to integrate what’s happening in the industry with whatever makes you feel confident, beautiful, and unique
So you’re already keeping it at 100%. You’ve got some killer style and a busy life. People are calling and emailing you daily and you’re always out and about either listening to music on the go, or snapping pictures of new places you visit. Your phone plays a very important role in keeping things in […]
Welcome to 2018, a time where markets are more saturated than ever and it’s easier to buy something new than to return it. It’s getting quite crazy isn’t it? It seems like there’s new products after new products, but yet never a product that ACTUALLY fulfills all of our needs. There’s always an extra add […]
I’m sure we all have been there – in front of the busy lineup of people who have not had their Monday morning coffees yet, scrambling around with your wallet in one hand, piping hot coffee in the other, accidently trying to pay with your 3-year-old library card, and dropping change on the ground. It’s […]
That time of year is soon approaching. The leaves are turning color and getting ready to fall. The warm breeze has turned a little chilly and the summer festivities are slowly coming to an end. While there is a slight feeling of sadness as summer ends, there is also a level of excitement as change […]
