Hi, everyone!

September is a really special month for the blog, especially the day 14, because it was when I finally wrote my first post. So yeah, my babe is 1 year old now! :) And to celebrate this date, I designed a little something for you guys to download. It's simple but it's from my heart. I hope it can inspire you every time you look at it, as well as beautify your home or your office. ♥

But first, let's chat a little about what inspired me to create this blog. I spent many months prior to that date, carefully planning and designing it all by myself, so it could look exactly how I wanted it and reflect the person I am today. If you didn't know me before, I had another blog some years ago. But I have changed so much over the years, that I decided to delete the other one, take some time off of blogging and focus on other things in my life. Such as my studies, my new religion, my relationship with my loved ones, and last but not least, getting to know me better, rediscovering myself, who I really was, what I really liked, my beliefs and so on.

I always knew I would have a new blog one day because I like to have a place to express myself. A place to show my views, opinions and to curate pretty things that inspires me and hopefully, inspire others too. I think any introvert or shy person can relate to that. We don't usually like to talk too much in public, so blogging is a good way of putting out our thoughts.

About two years ago, I finally figured out how I wanted my blog to look like and which topics I would like to discuss. I was also more aware of my own style, tastes and beliefs after all the changes I had in my life. The minimalist lifestyle became something really important to me. It freed me from feeling so attached to superfluous things, as well as being more conscious about every choice I make and creating space to what and who really matters in my life.

I still love fashion, I still talk about it here, because it is another great way of expression and it's like art to me.  But now I know how to have moderation and how to make better choices when buying something, like for example, thinking about the impacts that it will have on the planet or on other's people lives.

I think moderation is the key in all aspects of life. Minimalism helps me with that, but one of the things that led me to this way of life was Islam. I think most religions may teach that, but it was when I became muslim that it really made sense. If you are not muslim, you may be surprised, asking questions like: what, how?! And I get it, because the way Islam is portrayed in the media, makes it looks like that someone who follows all the Islamic teachings is an extremist, whereas someone who don't really practices all the teachings and/or follow more "modern" ways of thinking are the moderates one.

I won't go deep in it here because it's not the purpose of this post. However, that way of thinking couldn't be more wrong. Islam teaches moderation and the one who doesn't follow it is the one who will become extremist. So much so, that I am a much more balanced person now. I'm not saying that only in Islam you will find balance. You can find connections with this philosophy of a more frugal life in many other places. There are many Muslims who don't live a frugal life at all. But for me, it was like that. Islamic teachings really helped me to rethink my whole life and how each step I take can affect the world. Thus, making me more responsible about every choice and action.

Islam wasn't the only thing that led me to minimalism. Having the opportunity to live in another country, to live with fewer possessions, sharing the house with other people that weren't my family, getting to know new places, new people, new cultures, it's such an enriching experience. Additionally, it opens your eyes and minds to other ways of life and other viewpoints. This is something that I totally recommend to everyone. If you have the means to travel, not only travel but live for some time somewhere else far from your city or country, do it!

So yeah, minimalism is something that guides me here in the blog, not only in the aesthetics but also the topics I choose to talk about. I also enjoy inspiring others and that is one of the reasons I created these freebies with a motivational message. We already have so much hate in this world. We see so many terrible news every day. That's why we need to see beautiful things, we need more love and kindness and we also need to feel inspired, so that we do not lose hope in life. This is also one of my intentions with this blog. ♥

So, without further ado......*Play the drums*........here are the freebies I created for you! \o/ As I said, it's just a little something, but it's from my heart, and I hope you like it. :) I created one poster in two sizes that you can download, print and decorate your home. I also created a desktop wallpaper for your laptop or computer. They are available in English and Portuguese so you can choose which one you prefer. These freebies are for personal use only. Commercial use is prohibited and please, make sure to credit me if you share it somewhere else online.
