Beautiful Weekend

wooden walkway mistSIMPLICITY /noun/ the quality or condition to be easy to understand or do.

I just want life-ing to be simpler. I want my work life to be simpler, I want my art practice and creative business building to be simpler, I want my family relationships to be simpler, I want my friendships to be simpler, I want my love life to be simpler, I want my spiritual life to be simpler…yeah, I want ALL the things concerning my life to be simpler. The balancing act is exhausting, the break-neck speed of the workday is exhausting and the constant feelings of being behind or not achieving or not succeeding are exhausting.

I am craving white space (literally and figuratively) and simplicity this weekend. I have nothing on the agenda for my 3-day weekend (yep three whole days), except to keep things simple and do one thing at a time. No more piling it on.

Are you with me?

Here are a few bits of beautiful found round the web this week that will hopefully help you and me scale back our routines, embrace the basics and celebrate a simpler way of life-ing.

Simple DIY facial steam – I used to do this regularly but you know LIFE (ugh). One of my goals for 2016 is finally adopt a beauty routine.  BY March 31st, the goal is to adopt the routine and then for the rest of the year maintain it. Do you have any beauty goals this year?

Seven 5 minute workouts for all my fellow busy bosses.

A super cute and simple gallery wall.

At the top of the year I committed myself to listening to this guy and working these steps because let’s face it money and  personal finances can be overwhelming and so not simple.

Simple morning routines can be a game changer.

Read then do. I’ll be working my way through this list – Simple Life Manifesto: 72 Ideas to Simplify Your Life.

After being completely inspired by The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up (aff link) I am now ready for Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less (aff link). I’ve heard AMAZING things.

Cheers to a beautiful (and simpler) weekend!
