It would seem that the mint is the flavour of this month. Many of you liked its first appearance in this post so I dug out another piece in the same hue. I’ve had this top for eons but it is a perennial favourite. Each time I embark on a spring clean, I still find myself unable to part with it. Hence why I’m still at a loss with my detoxing process…

As you know, I’ve been under the spell of minimalism for some time and am still endeavouring to channel the theme into my lifestyle. Lately, since I’ve had so much free time (being a new mom is awesome!) I’ve been selling my swag on eBay, with the hope of giving my closet more breathing space. Wardrobe resuscitation, if you will. I am seriously craving more order, less clutter. Even my diet this year has become healthier and cleaner. Thank God. Guess what helped eradicate my decade-long addiction to junk food? Nursing Winston. Never estimate what a mother would do for her child.

How about you? Have you radically changed your lifestyle lately? Any tips?

你有没有看出来薄荷绿色现在很时髦?当我在这篇博客上带了一个薄荷绿色的包的时候,你们都留言说很喜欢这颜色。没想到我的衣橱里还有这颜色的上衣。每次我大扫除的时候,我总会在衣橱里找到我无法扔到的衣服,这就是其中的一件。因此,我的衣橱仍然没有救…

其实我现在很喜欢极简主义。我还是想努力将我的生活变得更整齐,更干净。最近,因为我有很多空闲时间(一位新妈妈不需要去上班),我开始在eBay上卖一些衣服和鞋,希望给我的衣橱更多空间。也许因为当一个新妈妈,我渴望有更多的秩序。至于我的饮食,今年也成变得健康了。我完全没有想到照料一个小宝宝会帮助我除去我十几年吃零食的坏习惯。真感谢神母爱是那么的伟大!

你是否最近也改变了任何生活习惯?

The mint is great with the black and white! Such a nice outfit :)

Hope your new minimalism kick continues! I desperately need the inspiration to do something similar, pulled out a top from my wardrobe the other day that I remember wearing in 2009! I hold onto things a while…..

I know the feeling- some pieces you just can’t let go, especially if they’re well cut, suit your shape and are made from great material. Hold on to it if it stands the test of time!
