How To Start Decluttering Your Space When You Feel Overwhelmed

One of my favourite things to do after a significant period of change is a deep declutter of my belongings. I wouldn’t say I’m the biggest hoarder I know, but I often forgo throwing things out or donating them when it feels overwhelming or very time consuming. However, moving back to Toronto gave me the perfect opportunity to go through everything I own and make some cut-throat decisions of what should stay and what should go. I’m saddened to report that a lot of what I decluttered I had been holding onto since high school…more than 10 years ago.

3 Ways I Make Every New Place Feel Like Home

I’ve moved around a fair amount in the past few years, so I’ve learned a thing or two about what it takes to make an apartment feel more like your home, even if you’ve only been there for a few months. Currently, I live with my partner and a flatmate in London and in the few months we’ve lived here we’ve been making small additions so that the space can be cozier than it initially was. It’s hard to make a space feel like your own when you’re renting, especially if you don’t want to spend a lot of money in the process, but below are a few techniques I use to feel a bit more comfortable in new spaces.

Little Loves

I feel like I've barely had any time this month to think up some blog posts. I've been so busy with packing and moving back home that I just don't feel settled enough to start blogging properly, but I do hope to have a good routine again once March arrives. I thought I would keep it simple this week and talk about the few things that I've been enjoying lately from style to beauty to the every day. I love hearing what others are getting enjoyment from, even if they're mundane or "boring", so let me know in a comment. I'm always looking for something new to try out.

Improving Your Home Without Spending A Fortune

If you’re unhappy with the way your home looks then the problem most likely isn’t that you don’t want to put the effort into fixing it, but that you simply feel you don’t have the time or money to do so. The thought of “renovating” your home from top to bottom might fill you with images of money draining slowly out of your bank account. Of course, this doesn’t have to be the case. Even a home renovation on a full-scale doesn’t have to be an overly costly project. You don’t have to knock down walls or call in professionals to fix everything. A lot of the time, improvements can be made to every room in your house with a healthy dose of DIY and determination. Here are some pointers if you’re looking to improve your home without spending a fortune.

DECOR PIECES THAT INSPIRE ME

Decor has never really been something I've paid a lot of attention to, especially growing up when I only ever had a small bedroom to work with. However, pictures of interiors on Instagram and Pinterest are always my favourite and what I gravitate to the most. There's something about making a room feel cozy with just a few small pieces here and there that makes me envious of people who have great taste in decor and are knowledgeable of the trends.

HOW TO DECLUTTER A SMALL APARTMENT

I never expected to have the luxury of an enormous apartment, not with the prices in Toronto and my hesitance to move outside of the city. So, for the past year and a month I've had to learn to live on the top floor of an old, re-done house; the front door of which looks like it's about a hundred years old. I am by no means complaining, on the contrary, it was a great change from living within the four walls of my bedroom in my parents' home. It's difficult to explain the transition unless you've moved out, but it feels like I can finally spread my wings a bit farther and really create a space I enjoy living in.
