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. Read on for my low-lift, high-impact cleaning routine – plus the eco-friendly products I swear by. Streamline Your Products This […]

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, […]

Game Changing Ways to Automate Your Entire Life

The average person makes 35,000 decisions a day. Oy! With all of the stimulation of modern life (news, social media, the buzz of email and text notifications) coupled with daily work and family responsibilities, it’s a wonder we get anything done at all. One surefire way to feel less overwhelmed is to find ways to […]

How to Build a Better Morning Routine

It’s hard to overstate the importance and impact of creating and maintaining a consistent morning routine. But, when you already feel stretched thin, juggling too many responsibilities on not enough sleep, even small, everyday rituals that you know will make you feel better can seem like daunting tasks. My fantasy of waking to a quiet […]

Expanding My Business: New Ways to Work with Me

I’ve never wanted to grow a large […]

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, […]

Packing in a Carry-On: My Top Travel Essentials

Travel is by far my favorite (only?) hobby, and since I’m a carry-on-or-bust kind of person, I’ve perfected the art of packing as efficiently as possible. Side note: Please learn from my recent epic fail, and check your passport expiration dates (like a hawk!) well in advance so you don’t end up having to cancel […]

Why You Should Try a “No New Things Challenge”

My colleague and new friend Ashlee Piper went a full year without buying new things. A full year! A sustainability expert and author, Ashlee started practicing the #NoNewThings challenge because it aligned with her mission to live more sustainably. In the process she also clarified her priorities, reclaimed loads of time, lost weight, and saved […]

Fewer Better: Summer Favorites

And just like that, it’s suddenly summer! To be honest, summer has never been my favorite season, (I’m more of a spring/autumn person) but this one is gearing up to be a good one. The girls are off to sleep-away camp, we’re planning our first family trip to Rome, and I’m working on wrapping up […]
