We often forgo the small pleasures in life due to hectic lifestyle. An utilitarian could be happily sipping his/her tea with a gifted mug from the groceries purchase. To some, an aesthetically pleasing mug will be so important even if he/she merely stays at home. Right or wrong is neither here or there because each of us has different perspective towards our daily living.

'I need a change,' whispering to myself when I stumbled upon the Instagram page of Amanda from AMÉLIA who lives a fine, fine life. There is a common myth that it takes 21 days to change or adopt a new habit. I get started decluttering recently by keeping the items which spark joys. I no longer (hmm, much lesser perhaps) fell into bandwagon of impulse buying be it cheap price tag or big discount. I will try to cast aside at least an item or two from my current belongings to sell online if I acquire a new item into our crib.

Are you currently into decluttering as well?

实实在在的第一件作品。

庸碌的生活让我们忘了生活充满乐趣。随着即将迈入三十大关,对自己的生活品质又苛刻了些。我想说的不是周身名牌映衬下的富有,而是自己的生活样貌。用有趣的眼光去看待生活的小细节,平凡的生活就会变得不平凡起来。同样一杯茶,有人随手拈起百货公司附送的瓷杯,有人就算在家里也会悉心摆盘,务必让自己蜗居也享受在餐厅用餐的意境。两者都没对错,只是大家对生活态度的一种坚持。

人们常说,21天能够促成一个生活习惯的养成,我也要好好效仿Amanda精致地过生活。当下的我在生活上有了些许蜕变,不管是价钱多廉宜的淘宝抑或是折扣多得剁手也要买的精品,我都只买我真心喜欢的。拿不定主意的就多几天再来,极可能翌日已经不喜欢了。要添购新的物品,就尽量从原有的随身物选出在二手网站卖掉、转送需要的朋友。别让自己局限在现有的格局,我们一起去发掘日常的迷人气息。
