Starting with the KonMari method

Hey guys!

Have any of you read The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo? If so, have you tried her folding method?

Recently, I’ve been in a very spring-cleaning mood, so I decided to gather all my knowledge I had about effectively folding clothes from reading this book and I gave it a go. I’m not sure if it’s appropriate to show you my bra drawer but oh well… I really like this way of storing bras. They don’t get mixed up or creased, they stay in their shape, plus – it’s pleasing to the eye. Unless you manage to fuck up the color coordination like I did, then it seems a little off… If you have OCD, sorry in advance for this picture, haha.

This next drawer is my underwear+socks drawer. The ones in the front are folded knickers and the rolled ones are socks. Now, I’m not 100% sure I did it right, it was difficult to picture it folded based only on the description in the book. And I was lazy to go ahead and find some tutorials online, so I just improvised. And to be honest, I quite like how it looks and it managed to stay this way – untangled and pretty neat – for about two weeks now! Success!

If any of you have experience with this folding method, or if you managed to tidy up your whole room, kudos to you! And feel free share your views with me!
Thank you for reading and have a beautiful day!

Top 5 Wednesday: Best Suggested Books

Good evening!

This week’s #T5W topic is “Best Suggested Books That You Loved”, meaning, basically your favorite recommended books, I guess. 🙂
Here are some links that you absolutely need! ↓

> Lainey’s channel
> Goodreads group

Okay, now to the actual topic. On one hand, I read a lot of recommended books, but on the other hand, these are pretty much all recommendations from the internet. I don’t really know a lot of people that read as much as I do and even if the occasional person recommends a book to me, I end up not loving it that much. So, I’m gonna list books that I absolutely loved which were recommended by multiple people on the internet that I trust.

 

Ugly LoveUgly Love by Colleen Hoover

I first noticed the hype on booktube, plus I have previously read Maybe Someday by CoHo and really liked her writing and the characters, so I decided to go for this one, too. And I definitely do not regret it. I loved this book so much! True, I did find many similarities with the infamous Fifty Shades of Grey, but this was thousand times better! Ugly Love is how Fifty Shades probably SHOULD HAVE gone, but somewhere along the way it just became creepy and disgusting. I will definitely pick up Ugly Love and read it again, I really enjoyed that book.

 

 

SYBGSince You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Again, another recommendation from YouTube. This is a story about a young introverted girl who’s pretty much the wallflower at every social gathering, and her coming out of her comfort zone and experiencing new and exciting things. I very much related to this character, and reading this book made me wanna go skinny dipping ASAP! Loved it!

 

 

 

Tidying UpThe Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

I love anything that makes me look at things from a different perspective, be it a person, a situation, a song, a book, etc. This book managed to make me see that what they say is indeed true – crowded space equals crowded mind. While reading, I constantly looked around myself and realized I do not need 75% of things that my bedroom was cluttered with. I immediately started cleaning up my space (which is still not done, btw) and felt an immense relief and clarity after throwing out stuff I always knew I didn’t need, but was never quite able to part from.

 


SagaSaga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

I was never into comic books or “graphic novels”, as they are now called. At least, I though I was never into them, even though I’ve never read one before. Pretty close-minded, I know. But I’m so so so happy that my best friend recommended this to me! I’ve read every single issue that’s out and loved every second of it! I love the complex plot, I love the artwork, I love the jokes, I love the narrator Hazel and how she spoils stuff for the readers sometimes, I love everything about it! Patiently waiting for the next issue.

 

 

The Bronze HorsemanThe Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons

And lastly, my absolute favorite read of last year, The Bronze Horseman. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved this book. The phrase that describes it perfectly is “all the feels” because, really it makes you feel all the feels! It makes you sad, it makes you happy, it makes you laugh, it makes you cry, it makes you wonder, it is a wonderful, wonderful book!

 

Hope you enjoyed my list and found some of your favorite recommendations, too!
Have a beautiful rest of the day!
