I turned 31 years old last week.
I thought I'd stop feeling like a kid by now but I'm starting to think I'll always feel this way.
Thank God, right?
And as much as I was so excited to take on a new year, officially into my 30s, I'd been caught up in a swarm of thought almost the entire month leading up to the day.
So much inspiration, so many ideas. And yet, I hadn't been doing. Sure, I had definitely been busy, doing lots of things. But I can't say I was doing a lot that was actually important to me. Doing things that reflected my inspirations and ideas and made my heart skip a beat when it materialized.
When I started The Tiny Closet, I was incredibly inspired and curious to see what the heck my life would be like if I stopped shopping mindlessly (and so frequently) and created a closet of clothing I absolutely adored. I thought it and I've been doing it. Yay me :)
So this year I've decided I'm going to tryyyyyyyy referencing that same just-do-it formula with all the rest of my grand schemes and dreams in life.
All of them. One at a time of course.
And what better way to compartmentalize, analyze and organize to materialize your dreams than.... Pinterest!
For me, nothing minimizes the daunting task of goal reaching quite like Pinterest. Perhaps you've been following me?
I've been using it as eye candy and inspo ever since I started it but now it's time to get serious! Kind of. I had a really frank talk with myself like
What's important? ...like really important
What do you like to do? ...totally love
What would make you happy? ...over the moon happy
Wouldn't you know it, my answers were just like my closet. Tiny. Let's categorize it, shall we?
The above I have already. But just like my Tiny Closet, I want the things in my life to be things I absolutely love. Not things I settle for or possess mindlessly. So like I did with my Tiny Closet, I shall also do with my life.
Because Tiny really is a lifestyle, you know.
Something completely different, outdoors, and extreme.

Travel is always possible. In the day-to-day small mindedness of everything, I forget how easy it really is to take little or big trips to refresh my perspective. From now on, I refuse to think I live in anything less than a magical land. Be it Burma or Malibu.
healthy, interesting, easy

Snacks, bowls, meat, colors. If I need to eat smaller, healthier portions, it might as well look something like this.
Who says I can't still have the body of a 21 year old? Body image is a very personal topic -
one that I don't prefer to discuss on my blog as I've believed it has nothing to do with style.
Style is equal-opportunity fun, I say!
But then I started thinking, well if you're not happy with you body, how can you be happy in your clothes? Especially if you love style and fashion?
My very first post was on health and beauty. If you feel great about the way you look without clothes, then clothes are really just the icing on the cake.
Style is more experimental, more fun and more expressive when you feel peaceful and proud of your body.
Annnnnnyway, I've decided to
once and for all give my body a big hug and kiss by giving it a life it deserves and putting it.to.work!
These pins above are from a private board and each one a reminder that a healthy, fit body starts with changing your mindset.
The Tiny Closet. I have a signature style, whether I like it or not. I like it.

Casual comfort is where I live. Also, one word: oversize. Give me drape and loads of material with which to swim in and I'll be a happy woman. I look forward to many, many more Tiny style posts of my adventures in the myriad looks of oversize, casual, minimal, chic clothing.
Thought I would just share some of the fun, contemplative things going on in my head and some plans of exciting things to come. Here's to being 31!
Thank you for reading. Really, thank you.
