Life´s Advice - Less is More


Good morning !

Besides these recent quotes/statements...
«Giving up is NOT AN OPTION.» 

«Prepared for the worse,
But always hoping and fighting for the best.»

That I decided to transform into personal statements for my own life
I would to speak about another one :
  «Less is more.» 
It is ... to one live with what he/she has got.
To not be greedy or carry jealousy towards another and their possessions.

This can be apliable to almost ANY area of our lives.
Self, Relationships, possessions/belongings....

We can start with belongings.
We tend to spend much money in the latest technologies, brands, jewelry...
As someone once said...and we need to ask ourselves (and others) this:

Do we need that much?
Do you need that much?
What can make us happy, afterall? 
So for today I saved this post for Less is more 
and some POV's are to be expected.

BELONGINGS

a) Cleaning  
We can start off by separating different types of files.
By month (MM/) or year (YYYY/)
Then, by day (DD/).
You store them in a folder or recycle them,
In case they are no longer needed.

b) Saving 
You can save some files (by using an external disk or USB key) on the computer.
It is also a pratical solution
Since you can easily carry both around in a backpack or suitcase;

c) Choosing
Choose the main files and separate them by categories

Examples : 
Personal, Finances, Work, 
School/Course, Health, 
Extra, Other.


d) Old and New
See if your items are still usable and up to date.
Check if your clothes are still wearable or wore off.
See if you are still going to use them or not.
In case you don't and if they are in good conditions,
You can give them away to charity or to someone who needs it
So they can give a new use to it.
And you can save room for new, useful items, to take place.

e) Make up 
You can label your make up with the date you opened it
So you know when you started to use and know when it expires.

(Actually this was originally Vanessa's idea.

She has great posts and reviews)


f) Wearing Make up...
Less is more is meant for this case, too:
A bit of lipgloss, a natural, soft liquid foundation 
clear mascara and concealer (optional) are enough for a natural look.

The skin colour must be even.
Also, the concealer ought to be slightly lighter 
In case you wish to conceal dark circles.

" I am a simple girl
I usually wear make up to enhance qualities 
and to camuflage small flaws and (mostly) traces of tireness"

LESS IS MORE...

" Finally, it is important to find happiness in simples things and inside of us
It starts there. We have to find it.
And let it blossom.
Then we can trully show our essence
Give out the best in us, for us and others
And fully live life ".


Regards.
