Cutting Out the Fat

Lately, I've been trying to edit my life. Cut out the unnecessary and focus solely on the essentials. Over the past few years, the clutter in my life has been expanding exponentially along both horizontal and vertical chains. I pack my social calendar to the brim, as I find it hard to say "no" and sincerely strive to make it to as many events as humanely possible. This results in a lot of "appearances" being made, and a lot of "I'm sorry, but I have to go..." as I'm prioritizing quantity over quality. The same behavior applies to my shopping habits. It's hard for me to stay focused and resist temptation so I end up purchasing a lot of frou frou items that only make sole appearances outside my closet. Wasteful!

I've come to realize that my current lifestyle is simply unacceptable. I refuse to live this way any longer! So, I'm now making a conscious effort to de-clutter my life at every level. For me, my first goal to living a more well-edited and meaningful life is to acquire no more than two new nail polishes this season. This goal has been easily accomplished with Coat Azure and A French Affair by Essie. These two polishes are bright, feminine and infused with Parisian style-they're instant classics!

Here's hoping everything else in my life can be this simple to edit!
