CLEANING OUT & UP
“Crazy times”, they say, “life’s changing”, they say. And so it is. During the past few weeks I have had so much time to myself that I have come to new ideas… I am now in a process where it’s all about “out with the old” and “in with the new”. So I am skipping old plans, making new ones. Same way I am cleaning out my house, throwing away old stuff and cleaning my interior to start life anew. It feels refreshing and I must say that with the way I do it, it’s also super fun.
When it comes to the mental situation; I feel so so happy and grateful for the fact that the past two months were so relaxing (also boring, but let’s call it relaxing). I would have never known I needed this time and space to think if social distancing had not been a thing. I would have probably been traveling all around the world and jumping from one outfit into another to go from one social gathering to another. But instead, here I am: looking at my laptop screen, working on another story. And I am not just working on this story here, moreover, I am working on my own story. So many new ideas have come to my mind in the past few weeks. For example: Finally, I got to the point were I decided to quit vlogging. I will still be making videos on my youtube channel but no vlogs anymore. Just videos that have a concept like a shop haul, a beauty tutorial, a mukbang or a style video. Besides that I have started with TikTok and when I say I have started with TikTok, I mean I am pro-actively making videos to post online (say what?!). Besides, I have started a new instagram account that will focus only on fashion (I know, I sound like a new person haha). Yesss… And I am so excited about it all.
New ideas need a new space. My mom always told me that you cannot expect your mind to be clear if your room isn’t clean. A tidy home is a tidy mind. I would like to add that a tidy home is also a happy home. So although I barely have visitors an could leave my dishes & dusty floor for what it is, I am cleaning my house on a regular basis. To be honest, I would normally be
a little lazy when it comes to cleaning, but fueled by new energy, I feel very enthusiastic about tidying up. So when I put on my favorite music, it’s time to clean out and clean up. I have already packed a lot of clothes & accessories for third world countries. And besides that I am conquering dust & dirt using Method. This product makes me happy just by looking at it; the colorful packaging is so inviting. Add the fact that it is plant based and has a lovely smell and I am good to go. If you follow me on Instagram you must have seen the way I like to dance & jump while I clean and if you haven’t yet, do follow me there: @larissabruin. At least I hope that you guys have used the past few months to your advantage as well. Wether it is by getting yourself together or getting your house together.
