Within the past few months I've noticed a change in myself.
- I don't feel the need to go shopping as much and just buy things for the sake of buying something new.
This change feels AMAZING! :D
I feel so blessed to have everything that I need and more. I've found myself really cherishing everything that I have and I want to take care of what I have rather than buy new and more unnecessary stuff.
All of this leads me to the next change I've noticed in myself.
- I have WAY too much stuff!
I was inspired by two beautiful girls I met through 30BAD (30bananasaday.com), Teri and Dariana to do some spring cleaning.

Dariana recently went through her bathroom face and body products and threw EVERY product away! WOW! She now uses one single product for all her needs... coconut oil and is very pleased!
More power to you, Dariana!
Teri recently wrote a post about how she aims to be more of a minimalist.
She went through her belongings and gave/threw away about half of her belongings.
She mentioned how the more materialistic stuff we acquire, the more money we have to spend to protect/upkeep these things, spend time cleaning these things and just in general worry about taking care of these possessions. She said something along the lines of, "it's more like our possessions own us instead of us owning them".
How liberating, Teri!
With all this being said, I decided to do a little spring cleaning myself and get rid of some stuff I haven't used in a long time.
I actually just cleaned out my closet twice within the past six months and gave away a lot of clothes and shoes so I didn't have many more clothes to give away at the moment.
Below you can see some of the makeup, nail polishes, jewelry, clothes and face/body products I am giving/throwing away.
What can you give away?
Lots of love!
