Time for a Closet Clean Out

I have been putting off cleaning out my closet for months now. Earlier this year I decided to move to more of a minimalist lifestyle. I was supposed to kick off that change with a massive purge, but I’ve been lazy and hadn’t quite gotten around to it yet. I very rarely go in my closet anymore.
I started the minimalist shift this Spring with a change to working with a capsule wardrobe. Btw this capsule wardrobe thing is really working out well for me. My daytime look is comprised mainly of blouses and pencil skirts, and my weekend wear is mostly jeans, white Tshirts, and colorful scarves.
For the past few months, I’ve been working with the same 10 or so pieces that I keep on a rolling garment rack in my spare room.
A few nights ago I went to move the rack, and it broke, as I stood there watching it go down and all the clothes spilling to the floor I thought it’s time to move the clothes to the closet. Most of the clothes in this closest haven’t been out in a year, and many of them will not fit into my capsule wardrobe plans.

The best daytime moisturizer with spf

Beauty/ Skin Care
With the temperatures finally warming up to something that resembles Spring, I’ve made some adjustments to my skincare and switched to a lighter makeup routine.  For the past four months or so I’ve followed a pretty strict skincare routine, and the results are great.
For one thing, I cut back on the number of new products I try. I’m eating cleaner these days (although I still indulge in a Taco Tuesday here and there), and I stay on track with my water intake.  On the makeup front, I’ve traded a lot of my full coverage foundations for lighter options with more natural, skin-like finishes. No matter what type of foundation I opt for, not correctly preparing my skin effects how my makeup applies and looks; hydrated skin almost always leads to a more natural finish.
The Olay Whip Moisturizer with SPF 25 holds up to my skins hydration needs and is a great addition to my “no makeup” makeup product list.
