Hey, what is minimalism, anyway? So many people are talking about it, but what is actually included in this strange new lifestyle? How do I live minimally? Do I have to give away everything? Well, in this blog, I'd like to share with you my opinion toward minimalism and what it truly means in a mindful perspective.
I believe in simplicity that doesn't scrape away at your sanity or your budget. My goal is to provide an affordable resource that promotes minimalism without misery, sustainability without sacrifice, and self-compassion without shame. Come along, friend; let's go on a journey to finally give ourselves the self-love we all deserve, and let's learn how to appreciate the small things in life along the way.
(Because those are the ones that truly matter, right?)
Have any questions about my lifestyle, beliefs, or values? Are you thinking to yourself, "How on this Earth is it possible to love myself?" Well, the answer is it is possible. You can love yourself, and I'll help you as best as I can to get you there. Come check out my blog for advice about the world, tips and tricks regarding the zero-waste lifestyle, mindfulness exercises, and other happy sunbeams to brighten your day a little!
Here you can find all of the products I make by hand, using only natural ingredients and materials, all shipped in a zero-waste container *just* for you. I also create art that is meant to uplift others, as well as useful resources for therapists, teachers, and all humans alike (which come in printable versions as well as organized, packaged bundles that I ship). For each product you buy, I will include a personal, hand-made card with a note of my appreciation for your support!
*Long, dramatic, over-exaggerated sigh* Hard days are the worst, I think we can all agree on that. I wish I could just wave a magic wand over your hurting head and make everything disappear; but, unfortunately, that doesn't happen. I promise to do what I can to help out for those difficult days, but I'm only one small person in this world, and I can't do everything. I wish I could heal everyone, but humans just aren't born with that gift.

Minimalist, Zero-Waste Advocate, Friend
Hi there, beautiful human being! My name is Annie, and every day I strive to produce as little waste as possible in order to show our beloved planet some TLC. I also try my best to live life to the fullest as a minimalist, because I believe simplicity is sacred. I love nature, animals, and uplifting those who need words of encouragement. If you'd like, come join me on this incredible journey toward embracing self-compassion and letting go of self-deprecation.
Why, you ask? That's simple: Because you deserve it!
