minimalism with kids if you can believe it

Minimalism with kids is it possible? Yes definitely possible AND also hard. I know it may feel like minimalism and having kids is a conflicting idea – but it’s not I promise. A lot of what we do as parents is very automatic. We parent from how we were parented (or from how we were…

minimalism with Yolanda Acree

I was lucky enough to connect with Yolanda Acree through Black Minimalists after taking their mini course (which by the way I highly suggest). As I’ve stated before I had a very negative perception of “minimalism,” of the white-washed and even privilege that many minimalists held yet did not recognize. Connecting with a community of…

minimalism with Jen Rivera Bell

let’s chisme about zero-waste

I want to start off by saying that our practice of zero-waste living and minimalism is FAR from perfect. AND that’s ok. The goal is to be intentional about our purchases and ecological foot prints.
