Sweater Weather Nails

Today, it's time for the last autumn inspired nails before I get to the winter/Holiday designs next month. I've already started doing them as you may spot if you follow my nail art Instagram @silvertigonails. But any ways, today we'll focus on these autumn nails.

Low Buy & My Plan for More Sustainable Wardrobe

As you've gathered if you've read my closet declutter post, you know I have more than enough clothes in my possession. Therefore, I can quite easily go on a low buy at least for a while. The only things I'm not denying are things that I "need" to replace. Like, when I recently broke my only pair of Black flat knee-high boots and gave myself a pass to get new ones if I couldn't fix them myself. So I've been on no-buy with clothes since the start of October, and am planning on trying to do this until February or so. I'm also trying to avoid collecting too much stuff by starting to put away one or two things every time I'm bringing in something new. That may also go for other things than clothes. (Exception being my nail art things because that is my collection that makes me happy as huge one. Not giving that up just to be minimalist.)

End of the Year Declutter: Komono (Miscellaneous)

This part of the declutter series is one I could probably divide into a couple of posts, but then again I think I rather save posting spots for other things as well since not everyone cares about me going through my unnecessary amount of belongings. This part would've included my makeup as well, but if you've been keeping up, you know I decluttered those in a previous post.

To start off, let's see my nightstand. I keep my hair tools, colors and all that in the lower drawer, and in time, I've placed also everything else there, like old cards in Forex bag, papers and so on. You know I've told you I'm messy? Yup, I'm messy.

Winter Capsule Wardrobe

New season, new wardrobe. Well, I'll be using mostly old things again but as I'm changing up the core items, I think it counts easily as new. For the winter, I like dressing cozy, having options for layering and staying warm as in Finland the weather can get as cold as -30 degrees Celsius and below on worst days.

Depotting Broken Palettes + Decluttering my makeup

A while back, I saw YouTube videos about making your own palettes with existing eye shadows and depotting stuff etc. (Like this one from Angelica Nyqvist where she duped a Jeffree Star palette) That made me think about all the beat up palettes I have (without lid and so on as they are old and have travelled/got dropped on the floor), and how I should put the shades into Z-palettes to possibly get more use out of them. So, I hopped on Beauty Bay, and got a couple of palettes and some extra magnets.

End of the Year Declutter: Papers

Let me start this out by saying this is the declutter I hated the most. There's almost nothing worse than sorting old papers. Or new papers. Or papers in general. I just hate it. But on the other hand, that's a good reason to do it. So I can get the package out of my life, not weighing me anymore.

But seriously, I really don't want to do this. Not that I don't like having less unnecessary stuff but I just hate paperwork a lot.


First Clear Jelly Stamper Design

It's been a little while since the previous nail art post, right? Well, if you have been missing those, today is your lucky day as I'm sharing a new design with you. And in addition, I'm talking about some new products I got not too long ago. If that's something you're interested in, keep reading!

Operation No Foundation

So, after all the Halloween looks, and as the dry inside season of winter is coming up, I thought I should consider some actions for my skin to make it feel better. And even though I love an occasional full glam with perfect coverage, I'm also intrigued to get my skin in such shape that I can go no-foundation style most days.

End of the Year Declutter: Books

I don't know how many of you know this, but I'm pretty sensitive to dust and other allergens like that. I'm not allergic to animals, but if the basic cleaning is lacking, I get a stuffy nose and other flu symptoms. Now, what does this have to do with decluttering? The less stuff, the easier clean-up. When there are fewer things to lift when cleaning, I will do a better job at it - and also, the fewer items a place has, the less it collects dust. So again, it's better (and more aesthetic) to get rid of everything that's not loved or needed. The book part is kind of an easy one as we don't have that many, I donated a big load of them to salvation army before we moved so I don't think I have very many to get rid of.


Vanilla Spice Latte (dairy-free!)

As the evenings get darker, I like to make more warm drinks. My favorites are flavored coffees, and I often google for new coffee recipes to find something to create and try out. Today, I'm sharing a vanilla latte with a nice twist. A DIY Starbucks Vanilla Spice Latte (recipe I found here, and adjusted to my needs/liking)

Cruelty-free Hair Care Routine

Today, I'm sharing my current routine with my hair. It's been a while since I did one (if I've ever posted one), and as I have been switching my products into cruelty-free ones, I thought it was time to share what I love when it comes to hair.

Sweet Mayhem Autumn/Winter Pieces

This post may seem strange after I just posted a closet declutter, but hear me out. I ordered these items before I decided on getting rid of stuff, but they took a while to get to me. Since I do love and support this company, so I figured I would share this small haul with you.

End of the Year Declutter: Clothes

Since starting to look more into sustainable lifestyle and all that this year, I've come across minimalism. Most of you probably know what it is; having only the stuff you need and love instead of having tons of stuff that just lays unused around the house. I have been raised mostly on a mindset that buying too much is bad, but also my parents have a bit of "keep a spare, you might need it" attitude. (Sorry mom, but we both know this has been true, although now you are good at getting rid off unnecessary stuff.) And I am an only child, so that comes with people giving me quite a bit of things when I was a kid as there was not another sibling wanting the same as well. So not that I was super spoiled, but some might still say I was. I did have a lot of stuff, and also got a lot of secondhand clothes from an older cousin. All of which has led to adulthood, where I'm used to having quite a lot of stuff.
