Every now and then we post conversations we have with incredible people who live mindfully whether it’s living with less or being healthy without doing harm to others. This is not an interview series but more a down-to-earth catchup over a casual cup of tea. Today, we catch up with Joshua Becker from Becoming Minimalist.
Joshua and his young family were introduced to minimalism ten years ago during a short conversation with their neighbour. Since then, Joshua’s story and writing have inspired millions around the world to find more life by owning fewer possessions. Today, based on his thoughtful and intentional approach to minimalism, he is one of the leading voices in the modern simplicity movement reaching over 1 million readers every month. In this conversation we pick Joshua’s brain about his take on minimalism, misconceptions of decluttering and his relationship with money. / Read More »
Will you be practicing minimalism this Christmas? What might be holding you back? And what the heck does practising minimalism during Christmas even mean?
Minimalism during Christmas for us means skipping all the nightmares of going shopping, fighting over carparks in overcrowded shopping centres, stressing about what to buy for your second cousin and what on earth to make for Christmas lunch that will also please the meat-eaters. / Read More »
Like many ideas for new recipes, I find inspiration for them while travelling and eating out. This particular recipe came to me through our travels in America, West Coast in particular LA and Seattle. We visited two great places called Gracias Madre and No Bones. They make amazing tortillas and tacos, full of flavour and bursting with colour.
I started experimenting with different combinations a few months ago and made this lentil and cauliflower taco one and Michael and I both knew I had to share the recipe. / Read More »
When assessing the real value of minimalism, I think we get it wrong. Minimalist experts have long preached that minimalism is an approach to want and do less.
In our view, minimalism is an approach to want and do more.
This paradigm was sparked in a conversation we recently had with Joshua Becker of Becoming Minimalist. We discussed the challenge of being entrepreneurs as well as a minimalists. We felt that the two lifestyles were at odds with each other. / Read More »
I remember growing up in Ljubljana and going to a tea house down the road from my home. The place always smelt amazing. I normally went with my dad. His favourite tea was the black tea flavoured with wild cherries. One other thing that he always used to get that we would share was a slice of the classic chocolate cake, sacher torte.
Since then, over 20 years later, I may have had that cake less than a handful of times. It has a special place in my heart though because it takes me back to my sweet childhood. / Read More »
