TOP 5 THINGS TO DO IN HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA
 
04:03
Visiting Huntington Beach soon? Here are my top 5 spots in the city! There's many things to do in HB, of course, but these 5 are minimalistic and zero waste inspired. All you need are some comfortable shoes and maybe a reusable water bottle.

PURSE CLEAN OUT & DECLUTTER
 
02:10
Special thanks to Lavendaire (Aileen Xu) for coming up with this five day challenge. I won't be uploading every single day for this challenge, but I hope to finish within the month. I'm trying to create better content, so any constructive criticism is welcome. The lighting fluctuates in this video so if you have any tips for this issue I'd love to hear them. Eventually I plan to create a "what's in my bag" sort of video. However, I'm going to try to minimize even further before I begin that project.

MAKEUP DECLUTTER
 
03:03
Today's challenge was pretty difficult for me. A lot of items (i.e. eyeliners) I kept because I will use them all up at some point and I think it is a waste to throw them away because I don't use them right now. Eventually I will make an updated minimalistic makeup collection, but for now this is what it looks like :) MY MOST RECENT MINIMALIST MAKEUP COLLECTION VIDEO: https://youtu.be/AiIdRJ8abEs INSTAGRAM: https://instagram.com/looseleafliving BLOG: http://looseleafliving.com MUSIC// Jazzaddict's Intro by Cosimo Fogg (201) https://soundcloud.com/cosimo-fogg Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/hY4yspCQRaM

WHAT'S IN MY PURSE | Minimalism
 
02:16
What's in my purse post-declutter? Though I still keep around 17 items with me, all these items serve a purpose and add value to my life. I would like to downsize further by using up my Carmex lip balm and finding a more minimalistic wallet.

MINIMALIST MAKEUP COLLECTION // Feb 2017
 
03:54
My video about decluttering my makeup is my most viewed video. Because of that, I thought you all might like to see an updated minimalist makeup collection video. If you compare this video to the one I made 5 months ago, you'll see that I've decluttered a blush and bronzer as well as some eyeliners and lipsticks. After making that video, I realized that I was only keeping items because they were "work appropriate" or because I thought I should keep them "just in case." I feel so much lighter now. Like I said in the video, this is not my ideal collection. I'd like to have more natural and eco friendly makeup, but I'm not really in the position to be buying any new makeup at the moment. MY LAST MINIMALIST MAKEUP VIDEO: https://youtu.be/ITYTr77WF8g Hope you enjoyed!

How to Stop Buying (So Much) Makeup | Tips to Reduce Makeup Spending
 
07:31
Hello! This week's video is a chatty one about how to stop buying makeup. I still love wearing makeup, but have drastically reduced my makeup buying compared to when I first discovered the YouTube beauty community over 5 years ago. I used to dream about having a massive collection, but now I have different dreams. There's no shame in continuing to wear and buy makeup, but I believe in buying products intentionally. Blog Post: http://looseleafliving.com/minimalism/buy-less-makeup-tips-curb-makeup-spending/ Also, there will be more declutters coming! I accepted a temporary position as a receptionist so I have been busy working full time. It's been a struggle to find time to film, edit, and write blog posts. Hopefully I can find a good rhythm and get back to posting weekly. BLOG: http://looseleafliving.com/ INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/looseleafliving If you're new here, hello! I'm Sara.

Sara Tries It: 30 Days of Stylebook

I've been wanting to try Stylebook for SO LONG and I finally decided to spend the $4 in September. Stylebook is basically like your own virtual closet. It's a ton of work to set up, but it's helped me so much with maintaining my minimalist wardrobe and seeing what I actually wear.

How To Begin Going Zero Waste
 
06:00
I was recently asked to make a video about how to start going zero waste! There is so much to the zero waste lifestyle so I know I left a lot out, but I sincerely hope it helps you transition easier. Remember, take it one step at a time. There's no need to rush! (I think I just quoted Jordin Sparks haha) I'll probably try to make a few more videos on this topic in the future with more detailed advice for specific switches. I intentionally made this video sort of vague because it really doesn't matter what you start out with, as long as you start! :) MUSIC: Infinity by LEMMiNO https://soundcloud.com/lemmino BLOG: http://looseleafliving.com/ INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/looseleafliving If you're new here, hello!

Decluttering My Nightstand
 
04:44
My nightstand was getting out of control. It needed some TLC in the form of decluttering. I'm so happy I was able to declutter it so quickly! I hope you get inspired by this video and declutter a drawer or two that needs some TLC :) MUSIC: Summer Vibes: Rap Instrumental (Prod.

I Used Schmidt's Deodorant For A Month

I thought it would be fun to try out Schmidt's Deodorant for a month and share my thoughts. I believe that this deodorant is pretty close to being zero waste, but if you have other (non DIY) options I'd love to hear from you in the comments.

WHY I DELETED MY SNAPCHAT ACCOUNT | Minimalism
 
03:14
After I filmed my digital declutter a few weeks ago, I realized that I should delete my snapchat account. I finally got around to deleting my account last week and I thought I would share my thought process behind deleting it. Hopefully this inspires you to question whether you need every single social media app. Though I am a bit embarrassed to tell you all how I used snapchat in the past (project an image of myself & check out what cute guys were up to), I think it was important for me to acknowledge that and realize that I've moved on from that stage in my life.

SHOE DECLUTTER | Declutter With Me
 
08:11
Even though I consider myself a minimalist, I somehow managed to acquire 4 pairs of shoes last year. It was definitely time for a declutter. I'm pretty happy with my progress in this video. Let me know what you think in the comments! By the way, the outro looks different than the other clips because my camera died before I finished the outro. I ended up rerecording it a little while later so the lighting had changed by then!

Digital Declutter | Minimalism
 
06:56
One thing I like to do before the new year is declutter my phone and computer. I delete apps I don't use, photos that don't bring me joy, and files I no longer need. I also organize what's left. I hope this video inspires you to go through your phone or computer and declutter before the new year!

My Channel is Demonetized | Why I Created My Channel
 
06:58
UPDATE OCTOBER 2018: I have been remonetized! Thank you to everyone who supported me during this time! Unfortunately, my channel has been demonetized because I have less than 1,000 subscribers and less than 4,000 hours of watch time. Instead of going "harder" with my channel, I decided to make this video to explain the reasons why I started my channel and talk about the future of Loose Leaf Living. It can be tricky to talk about money in relation to YouTube. I wanted to be honest with you and I sincerely hope that's how I came across. This is the most honest I've been on my channel and because of that, I felt very anxious posting it.

Zero Waste Stovetop Popcorn
 
01:35
Ever wondered how to cook zero waste stovetop popcorn? Full instructions down below: Here is the recipe I follow: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/perfect_popcorn/ Ingredients: ⅓ (I use 1/4) cup bulk popcorn 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil Seasonings of your choice Step 1: Allow oil to melt at medium high heat. Step 2: Place 3 popcorn kernels in pot and wait for them to pop. Step 3: When all have popped, pour rest of kernels into pot. Cover, remove from heat, and wait 30 seconds. Step 4: Place back on heat. Shake and lift lid to release steam until 3-4 seconds pass between pops. Step 5: Remove from heat and add seasonings. Other details: I will use ⅓ cup of popcorn if I’m hungry or if I’m serving 2 people, and ¼ when I’m just making popcorn for me. I will usually use less coconut oil because I like adding the basil infused olive oil at the end. I would use as much coconut oil as you’re comfortable with! I find that taking it off the heat for 15-30 seconds does help get the popcorn up to the right temperature, but you could probably skip this step.

JEWELRY DECLUTTER

Today is the last day of the "Minimalism Challenge"! Woo! I made it! Though this video is supposed to be a fridge clean-out, I decided to declutter my jewelry instead. I just moved into this new space and frankly, the fridge is pretty clean and doesn't need a clean-out just yet. I hope you've enjoyed these few minimalism inspired videos.

My Decluttered Jewelry Collection + Wish List

Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate it! I decided it was time to show my updated jewelry collection video. I hesitate to call it minimalist because I still have quite a few necklaces, but it's definitely decluttered and it's full of items that bring me joy. Here is the link to last year's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FR88Uh7aQPk In the time since I made that video, I have saved a few jewelry items and placed them in a separate sentimental box, as well as actually getting rid of a few items. Hope you enjoy seeing what my jewelry collection looks like now!
