reset button

This morning, I went to the charity shop and got rid of a full bag of clothes and accessories.

Whenever I need a boost of optimism in life, I find out that purging unnecessary items is a very reliable way to make myself feel better. Purging and decluttering is like a "reset button" for me. I don't think I would ever be able to achieve the minimalistic way of living, nor would I want to adhere this philosophy: though I'm more of a person who tries to avoid consumerism, I'm too much of a materialistic person to be able to embrace minimalism. In fact, it's very easy for me to get emotionally attached to things and I love to be surrounded by beautiful and well-made items.

But right now, I need to release myself from all the crappy superfluous stuff that I don't need in order to make room to things I use, I wear and I love; superfluous things are negative distractions to me. Hopefully, by summer, I'll be successful in that matter. In other words, I just want to own the right amount of things in proportion of the space that I have, and eventually, to have more discernment when it comes to my buying habits.

black suit

A favorite clip of mine; the art of wearing a mensuit with style. She got all the right moves, gestures and attitude.

igloofest

Igloofest is an event held every winter in Montreal where people are dancing outside in the cold wearing dorky clothes like fluo ski suit. It's definitely something you should try if you've never done it before!
