The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide: How to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify Your Life The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide: How to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify Your Life by Francine Jay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this book in preparation for a massive declutter/clean-up planned for my tiny but overflowing flat.

It did have some redundant info in it, which I read about before starting so I felt prepared. I like the enthusiasm and kindness of the book. The 10-step STREAMLINE process sounds very attractive to try out (I’ll add my experience with it as soon as I’ve tried it out).

Part three of the book mostly consists of redundant parts, however, I do not mind. It goes through the most common rooms according to the streamline principle with some specific advice for the specific rooms. I have not read all the rooms as I plan to go through them as I tackle the rooms, as a reminder and a re-motivator.

All in all an easy read that left me motivated to declutter/minimalise promptly. I’ve already used my goodreads account to see what books I will part with ;)

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4 The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4 by Sue Townsend

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I probably would have liked this book more as a teenager because I could have related to it more. The character seemed a bit silly at times, however, his behaviour does seem to fit the weirdness of teenagers. Even if it didn’t sweep me away, I did enjoy it, it made me laugh several times.

Inked up a few pens for happy writing. I like these colours separately and the combination also works well.

Winnie the PoohWinnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love Pooh, especially the BD (before Disney) drawings of him. This book contains a bunch of stories about Pooh and his friends, introducing them and their quirks one by one. They show how Pooh really loves his honey, Piglet fears nearly everything — especially when it actually does happen, Rabbit doesn’t really like anyone but he wants his friend around anyway, Eeyore, well… he doesn’t like anything and doesn’t ever see the bright or sunny side of it. They all have their own way of dealing with things and seeing them in a certain way, and they all stay friends. They set a good example ;)

Het Medaillon van ThriantaHet Medaillon van Thrianta by Mariska Buijs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t not like this book. I’ve waited (patiently) years to read it.

The book tells the story of princess Quahira who dreams of adventures, the kind she reads in books about. When the chance of adventure happens to present itself — like they do — she grabs it with both hands and sets off to make the kindgdom of Thrianta whole again. Not a small feat for a girl who has barely left the castle all her life. Luckily she gets help from several friends and together they go save the world! The story has a good dose of romance, humour and other exciting moments.

I have my doubts the people in the metro with me appreciate me giggling, however, I still enjoyed this book thoroughly. :-)

My new shoes.

I needed new shoes. I don’t own many so when I say ‘need’, I do mean need.

I had proper bad weather shoes and a pair of awesome teva sandals that I loved wearing during warm weather. The sandals had one big issue: my insoles don’t fit. I have special insoles, specifically made for my weird feet to help prevent pains. The few times I wore my sandals this year I ended up with hurting feet — even after only two hours. So I went on a mission to get other summer-y shoes. These will fit my insoles, didn’t cost a fortune and I like them because they look a little weird.

Also, they look great for drawing.
