5 reasons to buy second hand

A question of the day: do you prefer shopping second hand or getting your items brand new? For the past four or five months, I've been really into second hand shopping. That may have something to do with the fact that I moved into a new city with more second hand shops. Don't get me wrong, I haven't gotten into a full shopaholic mode but I find it so much fun to browse around the cool shops here. 

Leave a comment if you want me to list all of my favorite second hand shops in Helsinki!


How to cleanse dry skin

Did you know that taking off your make up and cleaning your face properly is one of the most important things when it comes to skincare? And when your skin is dry, you need to pick moisturizing and gentle products for that. Today I wanted to share some products with you that I've found to be extremely helpful for the past month.

I tried the KonMari Method

Today I'm talking about something I'm pretty sure you haven't been able to avoid - The KonMari Method. It started with the books and has now spread to Netflix. Marie Kondo is everywhere. I was one of the many who bought the first book and started going through their homes with a bunch of inspiration from the book. I started with my clothes and went through all of my things one by one. It was cleansing and frustrating all at once, and I couldn't wait for it to be over. And when it was, I was over the moon happy with my home. 

Time went on and for a while, I was able to keep my home in order and not buy more stuff to fill those newly empty corners and shelves. But then it happened. I moved into a new apartment and then to another one and another one. All that moving around and not feeling content made my apartments even more cluttered than before. That being said, I started the KonMari process all over again a week ago. I can not describe how happy I am now that I was able to get rid of so many things. To be completely honest with you, not everything has been tossed out just yet. I have bags after bags piled up on my doorway waiting to be recycled. But at least I made it to that point. But what gave me the inspiration to do the process now?
