We are moving out of our apartment in August and so for the next few weeks, we will be decluttering, donating, boxing up and sending to storage most of our stuff. We are downsizing for various reasons, and it’s quite cathartic going through all your stuff and putting aside the things you truly love and giving away those items that are just not your style anymore.
And before you ask… yes, that also includes make up.
That still doesn’t mean that I don’t want new things, but it’s a give a take at this point. If I really want something, I made a promise, that I have to get rid of something I don’t use any longer. Once, we move into our permanent place, I am hoping that it will have the space for a big vanity and closet to house all my beauty things.
So, what do you when you can’t justify making a purchase, but really, really, really want it?
I like to make little vision boards of all the stuff that tickle my fancy and imagine me wearing it or using it on a particular occasion. Sometimes, this makes me want it even more, but other times, it removes that need after it’s been sitting in my folder for a while, particularly, the $1500 YSL purse and $13,000 Chanel watch. You know, got to feed my children and all, but it’s a Vision Board, so you put on there what you want!
The inspiration behind this particular board is poolside cocktails at The Delano Hotel in South Beach. I wanted something easy and effortless, but not pretentious.
Do you create vision boards? If so, leave your comments below and share some of your wants.
Have a wonderful Sunday, my friends.
