This is a diary of my minimalist life. I've been on my simple living journey for five years now and it's the lens through which I create my world and understand the world around me. 

Currently, I live in the city of Orizaba in  Mexico.  Living in another country has been one of my life goals and I'll be sharing a lot about my experiences here. 

I'm also the founder of Black Minimalists, a community created specifically for black folks living simply and intentionally.

You can read my past writings on minimalism here. I've also been featured on The AfroMinimalist, The Asahi Shimbun Globe (Japanese), Melanin Habits, and Going Uncomplicated.
