Minimalism May Update #2

Update Numero Dos!

Day 8: Learn to Enjoy Solitude
I feel like I did this day pretty well. I stayed in this night (it was a Friday & I was anticipating a wild day/night the next day) and I literally just chilled. I went to a work out class, and then came home, made dinner, and just hung out around my apartment. I live by myself too and it was great! I got a lot done and really enjoyed myself.

Day 9: Downsize Your Beauty Collection
I did this a few weeks ago, but I kind of went through again and threw away things I was still holding onto and don't use ( an eye pencil, a really old concealer brush, etc.)
If you do this and don't know what to do with all of your excess samples or unused products, see my post about donating these items to charity here.

Day 10: No Email or Social Media Until Lunch
This was pretty easy considering I slept in til about 10:30....
I did forget until I opened up my challenge list, but that means I only cheated for about 5 minutes.

Day 11: Evaluate Your Commitments
This was a great day for this because it was rainy, and when it rains, sometimes I get deep y'all.
Not about to share this information with the internet world at the moment, but I did it!

Day 12: Define Your Goals for This Year
I have about two major goals that I identified, and like the last day, not really that I don't want to share them but I can't just yet... but once at least one of them happens, I will be too jazzed to not post it somewhere!

Day 13: Clean Out Your Closet
I actually did this about 6 weeks ago, soooo I took a different route and just re-tidied my closet. It's really easy for me to let that thing get unorganized.

Day 14: Take a Step Towards Learning a New Skill
My sister and I recently signed up for a sushi-making class.. does that count??
I want to start knitting again and actually become good at it, but that seems a little counter-active in the summer time... I'm going to have to think on this one and get back to you.

If you are participating, which day this week was your favorite?
