Tide up your home- Kitchen

Hi lovelies,

So I am keeping to continue my tiding up series with our kitchen. It is a pretty small only 7,9 qr. meter, but it look perfect and probably my favourite place of our small flat. So just in case if you fall in love with it (I know it is easy): the cabinets from IKEA (Bodbyn off white), tiles: Equipe Lisbon and white Chevron Wall, machines from Teka, diswasher is Bosch, while our fridge is LG. The dinning area: desk is vintage from my great grand mother, chairs are from IKEA.

Monday I was staring with the fridge inside and outside taking all the food out and cleaned it- after a night shift I did not had so much “feeling” or mood to do so I just finished it shortly.

Tuesday also the same situation, had too much work, so I just did the cabinets above and washed the window.

Wednesday the tiles and all the cabinets below…

Then only our built in pastry -counter situation left, for which I should to go to IKEA for some baskets to be finally cluttered, but as it is quite serious to stay at home so I try to keep it and left as it is, just a bit more cluttered…

See you next week…

Xoxo,

Tide up your home- Documents

Hi lovelies,

Let’s get back to the business: Documents!

I was handled it so easily: cluttered the bookshelf on Monday afternoon and now it is so so so well made: books on one shelf, photos, decoration, card games and my old iPhone on the top (I am going to give it to my bff’s daughter in a few days). Tuesday I did out two boxes: one decorations and the other is for sewing and I was also cluttered our desk. I was realized I have made a quite great work last year, so all the documents from college and university just put together now, I might going to declutter them if we have to empty this room out in the furture.

Wednesday I was packed some tools up to take it down to our basement (that will be decluttered soon too). One box, which I just have to take to special trash: electonical or shoes to gift or sell. I have found a rug, two shelves and a picture to sell plus I have gifted my old cork board. Yeah some more commodity still waits for our carpenter to finally finish the little thouch ups. Honestly I cannot empty that room until we do not complete our living room. And also our clothes rack, ladder and ironning board should stay there for a while…

So on there is nothing to write on a wishlist now, maybe would be a built in wardrobe…

Nearly forget the electronic sh*t AKA newsletter unsubcribtion and delete everything in my emails:).

Tide up your home- Bathroom

Hi lovelies,

This is my tide up series and now it is time to start with our small bathroom:

I did not had a full day next to work to do it so I had to do day-by-day:

1: Cleaning the furnitures, organizing and decluttering:

This is our wall cabinet (hack IKEA Silveran) so left side: top shelf is for travel minis and vanity cases, middle some back-ups, down our electronic stuffs; on the right side: top shelf just some rarely used items, middle are some extra toilet papers, which I am going to put into a wire basket on the top of that cabinet soon, down is some purities in the jute box, which will be on the small shelf above the toilet soon and some shoe care in the case. I am just thinking to take the tissue papers and the extra mats in here…

45B42080-7E64-4BA4-BBE6-D01EC5C80D53

Under the sink we do store all the bathroom cleaners and detergent- might be one or two boxes would be ideal for the storage. While in the upper cabinet is a small, behind a mirror are everything which the use on a daily basis.

 

Yeah, there were littelly nothing to declutter, only empties:

2: It was not a subject to take photos of: washing the tiles, sink, toilet and the window.

3: Washed the shower curtain, mats and the washing machine itself – inside and outside.

Finally some wishlist:

IKEA Svartsjön rack over the washing machine

IKEA SVARTSJÖN Horgos akasztó

H&M Wire basket (2)for the toilet paper storage (with some hack )

Tárolókosár - Fekete - HOME | H&M HU

White shelf with black wire holder above the toilet and a decoration poster, maybe a plant.

Tide up your home- Introduction

Hi lovelies,

Let’s the sun shine get in to your home and it is time to clean and clear your space like spring. Let’s do an entire and complete one for the new season. Yeah, I do declutteringregally, but these are usual tiny ones, let’s do it till Easter room by room and week by week. It is also a great idea to create some space for the upcoming shopping days…

cherry

Rules:

  • try to do declutter all the unnecessariness, which are not related to the room function,
  • keep the maybe files for an additional few days and rethink them at the end of each week,
  • try to list what additional you would need to have in this room- shop those at the end of the whole process only,
  • deep clean each room cap-a-tie,
  • organize,
  • do not forget to dominate, sell, give away or recycle.

First I will try to do the smaller or one function related rooms, but I will not start with our bedrooms as the weather will change rather in the middle of the month… 6 weeks challange is:

1: 24th February till 1rst March: Bathroom

2: 2nd till 8th March: Documents, Papers and Digital forms AKA further kid’s room

3: 9th till 15th March: Kitchen

4: 16th till 22nd March: Bedroom

5: 23rd till 29th March: Living room and common areas like entryway

6: 30th March till 5th April: Outside–  balcony, storage outside and the basement

I am going to update on Tuesdays regarding the previous weeks, let’s join me by linking your blog posts below.

January Low Buy Haul

Hi lovelies,

I hope you are well, one month has been passed from 2020 and  I am proudly presenting my first low buy update.

Budgeting:

Thankfully my overall salary was more than I was written as a minimal monthly salary, so I have saved 22,17% of it.

The needs (50% of salary) category I was rethought and here is what I put into it:

  • Utilities: Gas, Water, Electricity, Common cost, internet, bank and mobile.
  • Raw materials of food: these are everything which I have purchased at grocery stores to eat and cook from.
  • Food that I have spent in our work buffet (the prices are pretty low, sometimes even lower than making for home sandwich)
  • Public transportation monthly pass: I live in a big city so I need to have it during the winter, as it is too cold for cycling, but any taxi, excursion or car sharing goes to my wants category.
  • I have not purchased any house cleaning, neither basic hygiene products this month.

So it took my 32% of the salary.

Wants is the most requested area, so these are my monthly rules for the year:

  1. One fresh beauty products per month! Try to pan!
  2. One in and one out skin care, body and haircare products.
  3. One new addition to my closet per month: including clothes + maximum 6  shoes and accessories!
  4. Magazines and books: books I must not buy until of 6 will be read from my bookshelf, while magazines I will strict to one per month.
  5. Gift cards and gifts are exceptions- finally I will have a wishlist for my birthday and nameday.
  6. Only one treatment is allowed per month: beauty salon, massage, hairdresser etc.
  7. Keep a no buy day per week.
  8. Do decluttering per seasons.

My fresh beauty products of the month- AKA my haul of January, 2020:

Skin care product: FARMACY- Dew It All Eyecream. So technically I was paid and ordered it in December, 2019 but it is just arrived in the middle of January, so I decided to rather take it into this haul. This is a product, which Youtube made me to buying same aspect: Niki Sky(Canadian Luxury Youtuber) ,where she was mentioning that she struggles with dark under eye and she is just a few years older than me, so also has same issue with the first sign of aging. In the other hand I was looking for an eyecream for so long, which is CF, Mineral oil, parabens, fragrance free… So far it looks it is great and works much more well than my previous one…

Makeup: Becca – Under Eye Brightening Corrector. Same issue: my under eye, I used to love that concealer for it and as a eyeshadow base, I was decided to put it to my basket at Cultbeauty during the sales so it is just arrived too. And yeah how I could have forgot it? 12/1

Accessories: Furla Glasses. It is really hard to categorize whether it is a need or a want… I need to have a glass, because I am suffering from near-sightedness and I was choosing with ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect lens as I am working with computers all the time, but of course you can buy much cheaper glasses. OK, I decided to choose by the style, how it is fits instead of the price. And thankfully it was on my employee’s discount and I can give and account to my private health fund, which gives a 20% tax refund. 6/1

Clothes: I did not buy any Yeah… but swap a pulover with 2 dresses 12/0

Magazines: I just bought one, which is two as Elle and Marie Claire was packed together (January- February issue) for the price of one Elle. 12/1

Treatment: face cleansing treatment with Hévíz Mud 12/1

I have decluttered with remixshop 5 clothes of mine and 2 of my husband’s one. Used up some of my make up: The Body Shop: Fresh Nude Tinted Beauty Balm, Mini MAC Chili lipstick, Trend It UP: Lipoil + my eyecream and my face creamIMG_6732

Charity: this month Les Clefs D’Or event was also a charity ball, I have dominated to Australia rescue and also was involved into a campaign like last year about the mestrual poverty.

So the total was spending 31,17 %, which is a bit high however the glasses was only a must in this month.

Summer clothes update

Hi lovelies,

I have not written for a while as I mentioned the lastly why… Now it is time to show my recent updates on my closet.

Firstly I have made a bigger decluttering regarding my clothes, shoes- I would say Summer Declutter vol. 1. as I think I have to check it again in August. So have ordered a remixshop bag, to check if I can sell the items, which are unused or barely used – I am fed up with Facebook Market function as it is so hard to get a reliable buyer and takes so long- so the opportunity costs do not pay off if you know what I mean ;). So into the bag I added totally of 10 clothes and a pair of shoes. And also I took 2 big box of clothes to the charity shop, these are the middle condition clothes and one smaller to H&M recycle campaign, I know it is Fast Fashion but, it is better to take the ripped or torned textiles to return them.

So the list will be a bit long, but it was my purchases of June and July, yes I can not afford designer clothes so, it is Fast Fashion…

Shoe: leather sandal by Gino Rossi (Italian brand) ordered it for ca. 28-30 EUR with a -65% discount after a long hunting and that is what I was exactly wanted: beige or brown flat sandal with ankle strappy- I have sent much less than I was expect to be:).ginorossidn694mtwobgbg2512x_gino_rossi-dn694m-two-bgbg-2512-x_ab_0003

H&M

I have placed an order due to the sale at H&M online- I know it is so bad, but things happens- of 5 pieces, but sent back 2 of them due to size (ordered 36 and sent out of a 42) or bad quality. I am keeping these 3:

All of them were 6- 9 EUR, which is pretty good value.

Zara

They are so quick and upto date, so that is why a lot of people love them, but honestly they are a bit pricy compare to the quality… but yes the design… so they do have 2 annual sales, the first prices are usually not so much of discount, 2nd and 3rd are pretty great. I went in to the store by the second and was so suprised nearly nothing left- a lot of crazy tourist bought them all :). So I only find the floating yellow/orange dress for ca. 15-16 EUR (have not find on site, so try to took a picture) and some new collection:

Sorry they do have so ugly models on site so…. It is a black cotton top with a tie (ca. 23 EUR) and the jumpsuit (ca. 45 EUR) – OMG I had to go back 2 times to change: first due to the cassier girl pulled out a thread while she was removing the security thing and next was like a badly tailored one…

Oysho:

I wanted a linen short so bad, so as H&M failed I finally found: so classic (ca. 20 EUR)

I was a good girl to purchase two bermudas to my hubby:).

Yes there were no beauty haul , but I hope you have enjoyed!

Decluttering my “childhood” room

Hi lovelies,

So it is a decluttering again, that was (is) probably the hardest when it is comes to your childhood/ teenager room… So I went home to my parents to do it.

My room

I am not using it for daily basis since 2009, so for 10 years going to be in September…OMG. It is a like an “all-girls” dream room, with white built-in wardrobe and shelfs, pink curtains, natural rugs and originally: light yellow wall – last year my mum choosed to paint it to mint green, which I hate.

Declutter

I can not imagine from where I have these lots of stuffs… I have found a lot of good memory items, like letters with friends, journal etc. And also funny posters: Avril Lavigne, Back Street Boys or Maroon 5 and these get me back so so much of good moments and made so hard to decide. So I have just finished my nightstand, where my bags were and the wardrobe and also decluttered some beauty and perfumes from the shelves, so I ought to continue next time…

Most of the things when to the trash or recycling, but also to the Redcross charity and some of them are on sale now. If you wish to shop some of my clothes, take a look on my Depop!

Xoxo,

P.s.: my little helper will not be decluttered;)
