so guys, like i say in the video, ever since i’ve started making becoming minimalist videos, i’ve noticed that there seem to be a lot of preconceptions of what a minimalist really is.

i might have come across as a person only owning 50 items, not caring about clothes or kitchen ware, getting rid of things just for the sake of it. this is very far from my reality, and i just wanted to make a few things clear about how i feel about the word minimalism.

in this first part, i go through the different definitions of the words that are out there, figuring out if we can make sense of the term at all.

in the second part, just a few days from now, i apply these definitions on my own lifestyle, and explain a bit more about what my own personal minimalist lifestyle looks like.
( edit : you can watch the 2nd part here )

let me know if you have any questions at all !

i’ve got a bunch more becoming miminalist episodes planned ( so many videos – so little time ), but if you have a request on an issue that interests you – please let me know !

  1. I am sure some kind of minimalist coined the phrase “less is more!” And it has been a real influence on people since more and more are becoming minimalists in some form.
    It appeals to me as well, and I’m looking forward to hearing/seeing more about your own minimalist lifestyle.
    Thanks for sharing:-)

  2. Love it, especially the four principles. We may all have different approaches, but something things most of us agree on :-)

    By the way, your hair looks amazing this way, Jenny!

  3. I made this quote mine : “Minimalism is not about having less, it’s about making room for more of what matters.”
    Minimalism is a way of living and of thinking about what you really need for a long period of time and of what makes you truly happy.
    And as I never comment (sorry for that !), I must say I love your blog, your YT channel and the person you are Jenny ! Keep doing the great job !
    Love, Allie

  4. Haha you are cute, keep on with your lovely videos and blogposts!
    Cheers from Vienna!
