My Minimalist Cleaning Routine

Fun fact: I live for a clean house, but I don’t love cleaning. Because of these two opposing truths, I’ve found a way of streamlining and simplifying my cleaning routine to make it feel easy-breezy.

Favorite Fashion Brands and Capsule Wardrobe Staples

I’ve had a ton of requests to share my favorite brands and closet staples over the years, and I’ve held off – primarily because I felt awkward preaching about the benefits of minimalism and then bombarding you with links to consume more things. Additionally, it’s taken me a lifetime to sort out my personal style, […]

What’s in My Makeup Bag: My Minimalist Beauty Essentials

I’ve shared how to create a capsule wardrobe for all seasons and how I pack in a carry-on, but I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about how to lighten up on beauty products, especially for travel. It’s taken me years of trial and error to pare down my products and simplify my routine, […]

A Room Refresh with Wallpaper: Your Step-by-Step Guide

Tiny Changes: A Linen Closet Refresh

Here’s how this actually happened: I crashed into the massive laundry hamper in our bedroom for the millionth time and decided something had to be done. While our shared laundry bin was attractive enough, functional, and even made of sustainable materials, it was huge. Ideally we would’ve tucked it discreetly into a closet or a […]

Fewer Better: The Bathroom Edit

I’ve been feeling crummy about my tiny shared bathroom recently which is so silly because there are much bigger things to worry about – but here we are. The good news is our kids are happy, our public schools are wonderful and walkable, and we truly enjoy the rest of our home. But, back to […]
