It’s almost 2020…can you believe a DECADE is almost over? Lol, this is making me feel kinda ancient; a decade sounds like a long time. I mean, I’m almost 2 decades old..? But at the same time, these 10 years felt like they flew by. And tbh, 20 years isn’t even old. Well, I’m not quite 20 yet (still got a few years to go) but anyways. Enough pointless ranting.

Book Review: The Minimalist Babe by Lola R. Marie

About the book

Lola is every bit the minimalist babe – she lives simply, is intelligent and sassy, emotional and strong, calm and composed. Realizing that less is more, she traded in material possessions to focus on what was truly important to her. Lola’s inspiring guide delivers real-world advice on how to consume less, clear out clutter, find authenticity, and live a life based on freedom. It is a sincere attempt to help those who want to end their obsession with stuff.

Echoing the thoughts behind Leonardo da Vinci’s quote that “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,” this book teaches you how to value the simple things. From learning to declutter and live with less to living life with passion, good health, and great relationships. The Minimalist Babe is for anyone who desires a more intentional life. Drawing from real-life experiences, it is filled with stories that will teach you step-by-step how to be: authentic, self-assured, calm and composed, mindful, minimal and self-sufficient, financially stable, purposeful, free, healthy and happy.

So what are you waiting for?

10 Inspirational Quotes To Get Set For Back-To-School And Fall Productivity

It’s back to school season, and I’m finally in fall mode. Besides New Year’s Day, this is my favourite time to set goals and re-orient myself. Aside from all of the new notebooks, stationery, and pencils (who doesn’t love shopping for those!), it’s a great chance to start fresh.

And what’s even better? Autumn is the most beautiful time of year. If you’ve ever gazed at the river valley (or other water body) as everything is around is changing into reds, oranges, and yellows, you know what I mean. You can probably tell that Autumn is my favourite season (aesthetic wise at least).

So, to celebrate and get us set for this new season, I’ve handpicked and designed 10 backgrounds with inspirational quotes. Feel free to use these as your phone wallpaper, or pin them on Pinterest! They’ve got various styles, so you can switch up your background depending on how you’re feeling.
