In the age of the minimalist, people often feel a little bit self conscious when it comes to leading a lifestyle of having everything you need, even if that need only happens a few times a year. This writer is here to tell you why you shouldn’t worry about having a few extra things lying around.
“The year 2015 has arguably been the year of minimalist living and because of it, a girl can feel a little guilty having an overflowing closet of frivolous, never-gonna-wear-it things.
