Hidden Brain, my favourite podcast, tackled envy in an episode entitled Feeding the Green Eyed Monster: What Happens When Envy Turns Ugly. The feature was rich with social research and life examples that it prompted me to reflect about it in my own life.
Hello! It’s that special time once again where I take you down the rabbit hole with me! My first (and only) Inspiration Haul entry was from November and I think it’s time to do another one.
I hope you find something you like:
One of my daily source of stress was “having nothing to wear”. I used to rummage through my closet on weekdays for work outfits, changing in and out of clothes for an inordinate amount of time before finding the right combination. It’s the same story on weekends. I attempted the obvious solution: plan my outfits the night before. Then I quickly realized that I needed a (better) strategy. Some ideas floated in my mind like capsule wardrobe, minimalism, wardrobe detox -all internet-famous stuff. Surely there must be something beyond the hype. Can these things work for me too?
Hi all! My make-up challenge for January was by far the most successful one. Hmmm what does that say about me? Maarte ako. I like it because it makes me less frazzled on weekday mornings. It’s safe to say that I’ve incorporated it in my routine. It’s weird but I now go to work 15 minutes earlier than I used to. Something I couldn’t do with my December Go To Bed Early Challenge! I’m glad that my kaartehan got me somewhere this time.
Now on to February.

Is there something you always wanted to learn but keep putting off? That is drawing for me. I’m a doodler but never took lessons in drawing.
Hello. In spirit of keeping clutter minimal and savings intact, here is a look at my current Inspo Haul.
I’ve been worried about how people around me are sure about their passion while I perpetually change my mind. I obsess about this one thing, do all the research, scour the library and internet for information. Then it all disappears.
