Hello and thank you for stopping by to learn more about me.
I am Nadia, married to my best friend, Dmitri, and together we have a daughter, Nina.
I work my corporate world day job as an Environmental Scientist, and during my spare time I love spending time with family, remodeling, renovating, and decorating our home (we document our turning-house-into-home journey at dodesignyourself.com), traveling, playing guitar or practicing yoga.
What is this blog about?
It is about my journey towards a minimal lifestyle. I found the inspiration for this blog after learning about the capsule wardrobe concept. That was like a breath of fresh air for me. I used to do a lot of emotional shopping, which did not represent my style or taste. I would grab things that looked good on me, or I liked the color, or were on sale. But when I brought them home, they would sit in my closet for years. Some of the items still have the tags on.
When I decided to purge my closet, I was worried about how would I choose a limited number of things that are truly my style. But that turned out to be easier than I thought.
I realized that I am not alone out there, so if you are ready for changes or just want to try a new approach, you are in the right place and I hope that my experience and tips will be helpful and inspirational for you.
What is this blog NOT about?
It is not about how to dress and what to buy; I am by no means a fashion specialist. This blog, rather, shows that it is possible to shop responsibly and create many outfits with fewer items.
Now as you know a little bit about me, I would be happy to hear from you. Please comment and tell me about yourself and what you expect to find on this blog.
