About this deal

Thanks to its creamy consistency, Minimalista gel polish ensures easy application, minimizes the risk of flooding the cuticles and the formation of streaks. In the end, whatever the number, you’ll be left with only the hats you truly love, they’ll be displayed nicely, and you’ll always be able to find them. Now, in Minimalista, Shira shares her complete toolkit for the first time, built around five key steps- Clarify, Edit, Organize, Elevate, and Maintain.

pretty easy to breeze through and a little redundant, but some points are worth making over and over. She tells people to get rid of bedroom furniture to make it a nice uncluttered space, forgetting that not everyone in the world is American, so we don’t have these massive houses with built in closets. There’s a specific reference about the horror of wearing a ratty old college sweatshirt as loungewear. Teach them young to organize and take care of their things and to put them away when they are finished with it before moving on to the next thing and don’t clean up after them and this will be a GIFT they will take with them into adulthood!

The philosophy behind some of the reasons she “edits” the way she does makes a lot of sense and is useful. I do not want to spend the time warming up everything on the stovetop or waiting for the oven to preheat. I’m on my own journey of minimising my possessions (not becoming a minimalist), I have been for a while.

Rather than imposing strict rules and limitations, Shira redefines minimalism as having the perfect amount of everything-for you-based on your personal values and the limitations of your space. I was determined to retain my sense of style and say “no” to all the latest gizmos and gadgets and baby gear despite the pressure to do otherwise. Shira will not shame you for owning an abundant shoe collection or mismatched mugs, rather she encourages you to find the sweet spot for what brings you comfort and joy and let go of the rest.

She does a decent job breaking down the protests we inevitably have for keeping the things we don’t actually need. I hear her words in my head when I want to keep something “just in case…” but it really does feel so good to let your stuff go and live more simply. Minimalista - beige-grey, slightly muted nude shade, which every lover of natural colours and classic designs will succumb to.

For example, it took me years to arrive at one of Gill's pro tip: one nice product costs far less than a dozen cheapo products.And hey, maybe it’s quite true over the pond (I’m writing from Paris), but she was slightly annoying at times on that front.
