I started blogging to record of my “less stuff, more sparkle” minimalist journey. At the time, minimalism was not the popular movement it is now, so I felt the need to explain my purposeful choices and reflect on them to better understand the shifts in my life due to committing to simple living.
Writing my book was the turning point for me, when I realised that being a minimalist was not enough; that I felt more fulfilled by taking the process a step further and deciding to be my own heroine. It’s not just about letting less stuff into my life, but about how everything I own is a part of my heroine’s journey.

It’s my go-to remedy for listless days. I have another list, for equally inspiration-less feels, that serves a slightly different purpose. It’s […]
