Happy New Year! Thank you for watching this video on my vanity declutter and makeup organisation. Over the last year I have been focusing on clearing my life of physical, emotional and digital clutter which has led me to adopting a more minimalist lifestyle. I hope you find this video inspiring if you are looking for motivation to get your life or even just your make-up collection under control.

Minimalism Journey & KonMari Method / Review of Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Marie Kondo

Published by:


Just a little video about my journey to becoming a minimilist! One of my new year resolutions was to reduce the amount of things in my life, and I thought I’d do a small update about this for this weeks’ blog. Initially, I was going to do a book review of “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo, but it was very difficult to do without giving too much information away from the book. I don’t believe it’s right for me to summarise the book in a 5 minute video, when an author has probably sat for at least a year writing a fantastic book – I personally don’t agree with that although I have seen some YouTubers doing it. The book is amazing, and all I can say is that it brings awareness and a new level of appreciation for the things you own, so you will make sure to put your stuff back and keep things tidy when you have finished this book! This book includes the “KonMari method” – which is a process of getting rid of things you no longer need. This book will definitely help you make the first step needed to living a minimalist lifestyle.

This video is more of a brief vlog about what minimalism is, and what it means for me. Everyone is different and may choose to do this for different reasons, like to save money, to become a more charitable person, or simply to just become more tidy!

I hope you enjoyed this weeks video 🙂
UPDATE: I have downsized everything, got rid of my car, my house, sold many of my valuables and I’m now travelling the world. You can see my travel videos below but I will be continuing to live a minimalist life. I have changed my diet to a vegetarian diet also.

KonMari Book Review | The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up (by Marie Kondo)

Published by:


// The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up – The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing //
Author: Marie Kondo
Some of the things I loved (and the one thing I wasn’t so crazy about) and a few tidbits from the book!
Decluttering. Reorganizing. Simplifying Life…. Let’s do this!

also at Barnes and Noble, Target, Ebay, and many other places books are sold. Check online and at your local book store. (I opted to buy instead of borrow from a library so that I could underline and make marginal notes.)

Big Takeaways

– Don’t keeps books just because you might read them ‘sometimes’. ‘Sometimes’ means ‘Never’

– Divide books in to General, Practical, Visual and Magazines

– The moment you first encounter a book is the right time to read it

– When you’re decluttering papers, the rule of thumb is ‘Discard everything’

– Everything, that is, that doesn’t fall in the the categories of: Currently in use, Needed for a limited time or Must be kept indefinitely.

– All papers should be kept in the one spot in the house

– I love you heaps, thanks for watching xoxoxoox

Minimalism – How to get rid of Sentimental Clutter

Published by:


The final stage of the Konmari method was to get rid of sentimental clutter which is the point I finally reached. I don’t have much sentimental clutter in my house but I had a few boxed of things at my mam’s house that I had never really looked at for a long time and I had decided now was the perfect time to get rid of some of them.
