I recently published a post about the things I want to do to start my day, but there are also new habits I want to form when it comes to ending my day. After a day of work I usually just want to sit on the couch and catch up on some YouTube videos or watch a new Netflix series, but since I spend my work day looking at a screen, I want to fill up that evening time with other activities that’ll get me ready for a peaceful sleep.

I thought I would end this week on a lighter note and discuss my current makeup menu as I trudge through the arboreous landscape that is minimalism. I’ve significantly decreased my makeup collection in the past few months, only holding on to the few things I know I like to use. However, there are a few that I love to use, and those are what I’ll be discussing today. At some point I hope to convert my entire collection over to cruelty free, but there are so many products that I would like to use up (since I’ve already purchased them) before I make the switch.Read More
