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

Verlangen naar Minder by Jelle Derckx

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 book Verlangen naar Minder by Jelle Derckx.

The Minimalists

If you follow my weekly diaries or know me well in real-life, you know that I try to possess as little stuff as possible. If I look back at the Romee from about 3 years ago my mindset has completely shifted. I was a hoarder, more stuff was better. Especially when something was offered to me and it was cheap I immediately thought I needed it. I remember one day where I walked into a store, HEMA, and I only needed one thing. I thought it would be very weird to only buy one thing and so I picked two more useless items just so that I didn’t buy just one thing. It’s insane, I know. Luckily I’m not that same person anymore. I am a minimalist now. The mindset is here and I’m always working on it. There are two people who got me into minimalist. Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus: The Minimalists.

Experiences over stuff

When you create a WordPress account, they ask you to write a little bit about yourself. One of the things I wrote about myself is that I am a wannabe minimalist. Yes, an even more sustainable lifestyle! Life without trash, on my way to veganism, more volunteering, working on my carbon footprint and minimalism. Yes, I’ve changed a lot since I started this blog. For me it all feels like personal progress. In my head most has changed, my mindset is different. And mindset is the thing I want to talk about today. Valuing experiences over stuff.

The Life-Changing Art of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

This week I’m writing about Marie Kondo. Marie Kondo is a decluttering-celebrity. A few years ago, I didn’t even know that was a thing. She runs a consultancy, to help people declutter their house (and life). She is also the author of two books. A friend of mine had both the books and lend them to me. I’ve read them and I’m convinced, Marie Kondo is amazing! Today I am sharing a must read: The Life-Changing Art of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo.
