This week's Blog of the Week goes to Make Under My Life. Meet Jess Constable - a jewelry designer (Jess LC) by day and makeunder blogger by night. One of the reasons why I love this blog so much is because it focuses on how we need to 'exfoliate' our lives. In this day and age where we consume so many "things" - it's refreshing to focus on how we can de-clutter and make under our lives. Each week Jess has made an intention to exfoliate one thing she no longer needed/used/loved from her life. You know the boxes full of beauty products we have, the pants that if we just lose 10 more pounds we could fit in, or to take it one step further - the closet of clothes that you're probably not ever going to fit or wear again...whenever you could fit them again? Yep - that's the stuff she's talking about; she calls it "The Giveaway Giveaway". She said that her goal is to "only have really nice things, and since she can't afford lots of really nice things, she gets rid of one item each week. By the end of the year, she will have 50 less items - increasing the fraction of "nice" things by decreasing the "not nice things" - addition by subtraction." Love it!
