A Personal Challenge: Streamlining My Life

I am suddenly very much into the idea of “streamlining” my life. My meals. My wardrobe. My home. My beauty/hygiene routine (practically non-existent at the moment).

Controlling the Toy Clutter

When I was pregnant, everyone always told me how much stuff babies seem to come with.

Finding a Day Planner

I’ve always been a more type B person, but when it comes to planning, scheduling and organizing my time and life – I couldn’t be more type A. I feel I will never switch to a completely digital schedule – no iPhone calendar has ever felt the same as organizing my life on paper, writing […]
