As a struggling minimalist, I always get a warm and exciting feeling when I stumble across multipurpose item. Case in point; valet mirrors. Valet mirrors are my new obsession and finding the perfect one for me is my new goal. A valet mirror is a simple piece of furniture that doubles as a mirror and mini catchall for things such as your jacket, keys, spare change, or other things that may reside in your pockets.
After weeks of bookmarking every valet mirror I stumbled upon, I finally dwindled the list down to only a few.
Like I mentioned yesterday, I want to start doing weekly decluttering. One area that I’ve grown accustomed to decluttering regularly is my makeup collection.

In my opinion, mindfulness is an action that should be continuous and part of the everyday life.

When I say “nighttime routine”, I’m not talking about my skincare routine, which I’m always changing. The nighttime routine I’m referring to is a list of things I do before bed. Although I’m really good at having and maintaining my morning rituals of scrolling Instagram while sipping coffee, my nights are random.
Over the past couple of months, my sleep quality hasn’t been as good as it has been in the past. I truly believe this is because I’ve been inconsistent with straying away from my set bedtime and also not using my time wisely before bed.

Trying to be a legit and responsible adult can be so stressful, even for single(ish), childless me. These last few months have been testing me and my resilience, but I’ve been able to bounce back. Yet, there have been more than a few times I’ve thought about starting over in a new place. I usually start thinking about relocating during moments of being overwhelmed. However, I’ve yet to pull the trigger.
Although I’ve yet to give my current life the middle finger and dip, if I ever do, there are 3 places in particular that I always think about moving to and starting over. A couple of the cities, I’ve visited before, but there’s that I’ve yet to visit. Keep reading to see which cities I’ve thought to relocate.
