Facial oils are becoming increasingly popular, but many people are still insecure about whether or not to use oil as part of their skincare and, if so, which one. There are many articles detailing which oil is most beneficial for which skin type, but I wanted to give a general overview of some of the oils I have personally used and easy ways to use oils on the face.
When it comes to clothes, people tend to own far more than they actually wear. Stylists say the average woman wears about 20% of the clothes she owns on a regular basis. And yet, people, especially women, often get ready in the morning feeling like they have nothing to wear. At the end of the day, most people go back to the same clothes they wear most of the time, despite going shopping on a regular basis to get good deals.
Ever since I started working to reduce the waste I produce I have realized how difficult it is, especially here in Greece, to try to live more of a zero waste lifestyle.
I’ve mentioned before how composting is not actually something that is done here and that even separating trash seems a lot more complicated than in Germany, for example, where this has become the norm.
My recent trip to Ioannina was much more focused on nature than the other trips I’ve taken this year, and whenever I spend a lot of time in nature I am reminded of how spectacular this planet is. We don’t appreciate the planet we live on nearly enough, and that’s how we end up with things like climate change. Spending time outdoors serves as a good reminder of the necessity to do something to protect the world we live in. There are so many small things we can all do to reduce global waste.
I have mentioned before in my posts on zero waste and cutting down on plastic that I have been trying to find ways to reduce the amount of plastic I use and trash I produce. While it’s not possible to live completely zero waste, I think any serious attempt at harming the environment less in our day to day life is helpful. When you become more conscious of your negative impact on the planet you genuinely start to enjoy the ways in which you can decrease the damage you cause.
As I mentioned in my Malta sneak peek, my apartment got broken into the night before we left for Malta. Needless to say, I urgently started looking for a new place. It was a bit difficult to find a furnished apartment that met my requirements, and I definitely had to sacrifice some things, but I'm happy to announce that I have finally moved into a new apartment.
When people first hear about minimalism they often find the idea of becoming a minimalist very difficult because we live in a capitalist and consumerist society. We are constantly bombarded with advertisements for new products we should buy, and it can be very difficult to resist the urge to purchase the latest gadget and the bigger and better version of whatever item you may own.
This weekend, I will be heading to Warsaw for a super short trip, and I want to pack as little as possible. As I will be spending a night there, I will need to bring some essentials however.
Hair care can be a difficult topic when you’re vegan because a lot of the products out there are not vegan and cruelty-free. Luckily, since I try to live a more minimalist lifestyle I want to keep the number of products I use very low and am not too concerned with owning tons of different, new products.
On Sunday, my boyfriend and I will be flying to Hamburg for one week to visit family and friends. As you know from my post on minimalist packing for Rome, I prefer to travel with hand luggage only. This is generally not difficult if you remember to focus on the things you really need.
