All the cosmetics I own as a minimalist

So, I didn’t really know what to call this blogpost. Beauty products sound weird to me. Nobody needs special products to be beautiful I guess. Stuff can’t make you beautiful. Eventually I decided to call this category cosmetics. If you’d ask me if I’m a fan of cosmetics I’d answer no. But toothpaste and soap are cosmetics too and I definitely do need those! I claim to be a minimalist, so I thought it’d be good to share what cosmetics I use on a daily basis as an addition to my make-up stash from last week. Here are all the cosmetics I own as a minimalist. Lees “All the cosmetics I own as a minimalist” verder

Here’s all the make-up I own as a minimalist

I have been wanting to post about my make-up stash for a long time. However, I waited and waited. I wanted it to be perfect. I am slowly transitioning to a low waste and minimalistic make-up stash. And since it’s not perfect right now I didn’t post it. But I don’t  think that’s completely fair. I don’t start where I want to be. For me it’s all a journey too. So, why not share where I am right now? Today’s post is my entire make-up stash as it is right now. Lees “Here’s all the make-up I own as a minimalist” verder

Book about minimalism: Verlangen naar Minder

Quick disclaimer: this is a Dutch book, so if you don’t speak Dutch it is kind of a no-go. But, a lot of people out here are Dutch and the book I am about to share is so good I had to share it. Today I’m sharing another book about minimalism. It’s a subject I can read thousands of books about. Each minimalism story is different. The past week a friend asked for book recommendations and I recommended this book I am about to share with you to her. It made me realize that I hadn’t shared it here. So, today I am sharing the minimalism story of Jelle Derckx, he wrote a book called ‘Verlangen naar minder’.

Hi, I’m back with a new weekly diary! I hadn’t posted one in two weeks because I went on a holiday and I wasn’t in the mood to write there.

The past week I did a small room-makeover with secondhand stuff, went to the biggest flee market in our region and barbecued vegan. Want to read along?
