Minimalistic makeup look is not about having less makeup in your drawer or desire to look understated.

It is more about carefully picked up items that are high-quality and works for you every time.

Minimalistic makeup look works when you want to be in your element.

 

Let’s face it most of the time we are running errands… going grocery shopping…going through detox, enjoying a peaceful day or spending time with the family (or even… working from home).

We all need day to day go-to minimalistic makeup look.

How To Define Your Ideal Minimalistic Makeup Style

Decide whether you’re going for nude or pink colors in your makeup look, whether you like more accent on eyes, lips or brows or maybe all of the above!

I usually prefer more pinks in my looks simply because I have green eyes and a little bit more blush makes me look fresher since I have some neutral undertones on my skin some days.

I feel like nude makeup is a little bit understated at times and I prefer pinkish nudes a little bit more.

Most of the time we wear only 20% makeup we have while the rest of the makeup is simply aging and expiring in our makeup organizers. Consider buying a good basic palette that will have basic colors.

Minimalistic makeup is your most natural look and will probably wear 80% of the time, so be sure it is the best quality (ideally cruelty-free!)products, and don’t be afraid to invest in them!

Routine For Minimalistic Makeup

Adopting new routines and figuring out new ones, sometimes you just don’t have time to establish good habits and acquire good discipline.

My skin type is oily in the summer and normal in the winter and sometimes my skin feels dry for no reason at all. The transition between seasons is always a struggle, but if your skin is giving you issues, here is some good across the border products to use.

Tip: More expensive designer brands foundation tends to have less coverage and it works really natural and good on your skin, but it requires really good skin routine.

My goal this year was to figure out my skin routine. I saw some significant change after I started drinking more water, got cardio going, cut the sugar and started taking some hair. vitamins.

My Go-To Vitamins

My all-time favorite hair and skin vitamins that show some fast results are:

MegaFood Hair, Skin & Nails

Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails

Exfoliation

Roc Daily Resurfacing Disks

One side of them is more textured and another side is more gentle smooth, so you can use them daily and divide which side you want to use in that area.

I recommend to use them before putting makeup on since it erases all the skin peeling and overtime improves skin texture, so you can use more sheer makeup foundation over time.

Face Wash

Lancome Creme Radiance

My current favorite that never fails me and doesn’t make me too dry after is Lancome Creme Radiance. I only buy it 2oz at a time because it lasts forever. It also transitions really well, no matter what an average day in Florida brings you.

Good dupe: Neutrogena Facewash

Microfiber Face Towels Washcloths

Recently I started using microfiber face washcloths and I am big fan and advocate for them! It is an absolute must buy and I really can’t imagine my life without it!

It completely changed my life and my skin just loves them and they take off all of your makeup. Visible results right away!
I highly recommend them for the people that tend to obsess about their skin texture and tend to pick on their skin.

It really will leave you speechless.

I actually put to the test one day and I went with the toner right after I had washed with microfiber face washcloth and there were no makeup leftovers and impurities left.

I am very excited about my skin now. I don’t have to call it problematic anymore. Honestly, if I can only reduce stress now, I would have ideal skin.

Rose Water

I also like to use rose water before I put a serum on. I have noticed that rosewater makes my skin happier.

Face Serum

For serum, I use either Lancome Serum or Roc serum. I can’t decide which one is my favorite.

Face cream

My all-time favorite face cream is Shiseido Matifying Oil-FreeMoisturizer. It had the most luxurious finish and texture, but if you are trying to save some money this an amazing alternative to it.

 

I also recently discovered Bamboo Charcoal Hydrating Gelee Moisturizer and I love it. It dries within seconds. And it’s perfect if you have limited time to do your makeup.

It is not as luxurious as Shiseido Matifying Moisturizer Oil-Free and looks black, but it doesn’t your face complexion and will give you matte look.

My Favorite FoundationPrimer

If I have issues with pores and shine I use this products on my Tzone:

Foundation

Depends on what your skin type is the foundation you choose will differ but there are some of my personal favorites:

Neutrogena Shine Control
DiorSkin Forever
Nars Radiant Tinted Mosturizer

Foundation Brushes To Use:

M439 – Foundation my current fave!!! SOOO Soft!

Is Venus Gillette Platinum Razor For You?

Whether shaving is not part of your routine or not, you still need a dependable razor for SOS days, you need it on the go. There is always that transitioning phase where you just can’t use anything but shaving.

As for me, I live in Florida and Florida living gets intense… humidity, pools, boating, overheated cars during hot temperatures and spring hot-cold days!

You need a great razor or you will get stuck with a pants day on an accidentally hot day in the middle of spring.

So let’s talk Venus Gillette Platinum performance.

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Style

Finally, Venus Gillette created something more elegant and classy, although shaving is supposed to be fun (hence all the fun colors).

Style has changed over the years and I feel in the times of rose gold, chrome and yellow gold elements with marble everything these days there is a need for some luxury looking razor that screams style.

If I am leaving it on the counter, I don’t want all those colors to pop like I’m in teenager’s bathroom. So Venus Gillette THANK YOU for something I can leave out on the counter next to my boyfriend’s high-end stuff and not to look tacky and ‘teenagie’.

Maybe one day you can create a luxury high-end edition. There is a market for it for sure. 

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Efficiency

Efficiency: I am very active and quite fit and defined, a big part of my style is athleisure (athletic and leisure clothing) so leggings and skinny jeans are a big part of my wardrobe.

 Whether I am wearing an organic cotton leggings or synthetic I don’t want anything to poke through it, so I have to rely on quite an efficient razor, so I don’t have to have a time-consuming inspection of my legs.

I have noticed that 5 razor blades tend to do the job. If time management is a big concern of yours 5 razor blade is more efficient and more trustworthy (perfectionists can rejoice now).

Metal elements on the handle added not only style but also a sense of control and certainty to the movement. I have noticed the additional weight of the razor felt unusual at first but felt more smooth and more balanced during shaving.

A lot of people expected a full metal handle and were left disappointed that it had plastic elements, too. Personally, I feel like it was a good amount of both.

Lifting Venus Gillette Platinum razor left me feeling a little bit nostalgic due to heavier metal elements. It reminded me of my Dad’s vintage razors for a second or two.

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Navigation

Metal part reduced pulling and glided better than just plastic alternatives. I wasn’t sure whether I liked the plastic elements on it at first.

But once I started shaving I realized that they were essential to the grip in-control feeling during the shave.

Venus Gillette Platinum razor navigated all the tricky places like kneecaps, behind the knees, back of the leg areas, ankles and underarm (my underarm is especially tricky), which was impressive. 

The head did not feel too large or awkward, its mobility was pretty impressive.

How long the results from Venus Gillette Platinum Razor last?

I would say the shave lasts two solid days (although if you shave a lot and you take hair vitamins and supplements it can sure alter the days your shave lasts). The third day was tolerable (although I would shave again that day). The fourth day felt okay, but I would change shorts for capris. Do shave on the fourth day.

For how long you can use Venus Gillette Cartridge? 

 

You can totally use the blades for several weeks. To prolong the life of the razor try to use it in cold or warm water.

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Price

The price point around $8.99 with one refill or $12.99 with 2 refills.

Review: Coconut🥥 1 Minute Hair Treat : Conditioner, Mask and Leave-in By Garnier Fructis

Hey, there gorgeous!

I am getting at lot of questions on my Instagram and in person about my current hair routine, so I’m in the process of writing ✍️ blog post of my complete hair routine for curly hair🧖‍♀️💁‍♀️ (If you hair is dry, it will work for you, too)

While I was working on the post I received a Vox Box and tried Coconut🥥 1 Minute Hair Treat from Garnier Fructis 🌱, so I decided to put up a review on it really fast.

I don’t know about your hair, but my hair loves shampoos from Garnier Fructis 🌱, but no matter how good product can be I have to rotate products pretty often for both my hair and skin, because my hair and skin adjust to products so fast.

I gave it a try, their formula is 100% vegan 🌱 , no silicones 🌱, no parabens🌱, no artificial colors 🌱(so the bad stuff is out).

Most of the hair masks you have to leave on your hair for half an hour or so, and truth be told I haven’t expected much results in just one minute…

But to my surprise it showed pretty decent results for 1 minute mask…

☑️Results☑️:

👌 It really shows a lot moisture right away (and I mean you can feel it right away within seconds on your wet hair) and really intense gloss!

Here are the results before and after in intensely humid conditions of Florida (that day I had the windshield wipers on it was that humid).

This is before picture:

This is immediate after as it was drying out:

This is final styled:

👌 you can use it as a mask, as a conditioner and leave-in. My favorite combo is to use it as a mask and a conditioner

👌 It did not weigh my hair down at all it was really easy to manage and felt light 💁‍♀️

👌🥥 coconut 🌴 oil and extract are really good for your hair: anti-fungal, antibacterial. It actually penetrates your hair shaft and delivers nutrients and minerals to keep it healthier.

👌 I did not smell like coconut 🥥 right after. It smelled rather clean with barely any 🥥 smell.

🙍‍♀️Thing I did not like 🤦‍♀️:

🤷‍♀️ I’m not sure 🤔 but it seemed to really frizz up towards drying but it was pretty easy fix: I took some of it and used on damp hair. It fixed the problem. Although I have to admit that humidity was rather extreme that day. 🤷‍♀️ It did not provide any volume at all. It never claimed it would though, although it did make up for it with hair manageability.

💡💡💡 Final thoughts 💡💡💡:

Will it be my all time favorite?

As a time saving product and to get results on the go. Garnier is on the right track though eliminating all the bad stuff from their products 🙌🙌🙌 Really impressed with the glossy hair results.

I received the product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Lumee Case Study: Will It Light Up Your Selfie Or Is Just The Case With Lights

lumee case lumee lumee case iphone 6 lumee phone case selfie light light up phone case selfie light phone case selfie light case selfie case selfie phone case lumee case iphone 6 plus light phone case selfie case iphone 6 lumee case iphone 7 lumee iphone 6 led phone case iphone case with lights 5

Overall Lumee Case Conclusion:

Yes, definitely a go and 100% worth it! No instructions needed to pop on your phone and start using.

If your selfie matters to you and digital social life are important to you, it’s a must.

Not only bloggers and teenagers love it, it can be handy for everyday use in more ways than you ever expected.

An adjustable light that doesn’t eat your battery charge.

Lumee Case popped up in my Amazon feed for the first time when I started shopping for my home studio equipment.

You see I had my Lifeproof Case for the longest time and I absolutely loved the safety of it. But I started to think about getting a new case for my phone.

I decided to run my decision by my girlfriends. They all agreed that perfect light for selfies sounded cool and they all heard about it, but no-one had it and I should totally go for it under one condition… I had let them know how it works. So here it is.

So I ordered it that very night. Next couple of days we were collectively anxious about Lumee Case arrival.

It arrived pretty quick (Amazon Prime is amazing!) Also I got really lucky with price as they just introduced out a new improved version of it and it was on sale.

As far as the price goes, I consider it to be pretty reasonable. Let’s face it our average Sephora receipt is far higher. I am a true believer that accessories matter in everyday life.

Some colors are more expensive than others and you are more than welcome to pick a DUO version of it if you find value in it.

Lumee Case Colors

It comes in a wide variety of colors:

Black, White, Rose Matte, White and Black Marble.

I have bought Matte Black as I try to wear my Lous Vuitton black purse a little bit more and my leather planner is black, too.

Lumee Case Packaging and Assembly

I don’t necessarily open all my purchases right away. I know… I know… It’s so wrong (I’m working on it). My expectation of a new product is tiny-tiny instruction pages and long and with a really small font.

I was pleasantly surprised no instruction needed (instructions were on the box and in pictures) I just popped it on and I started to use it.

I did not have time to charge it right away (it happened to be charged and surprisingly had a decent amount of charge).

Lumee Case Real Life Testing For 1 st day impression

On my first day one of my friends… DROPPED IT… on the tile floor… which made my heart stop

(I’m really thankful it wasn’t a public bathroom floor lol)

TO MY COMPLETE SURPRISE IT WAS FINE!

Phew…

Having Lumee Case for a week Real Life conditions

I don’t take a lot of selfies *cough* (my boyfriend thinks I do though) I am trying to monitor my vanity lol so at least I don’t post them as often.

I constantly on the lookout for great ideas for my posts here on the blog and my Instagram. I never know when an opportunity presents itself to snap a picture or two though. Lumee Case made me feel confident about good quality for unplanned on the go and behind the scenes content.

Buying it in autumn was a win-win since the days got shorter and darker. Now I don’t have to be worried about the low light situations.

Light Up Your Selfie

To my relief, I found it proved to be more than just a glorified flashlight!

Let’s not forget that the quality of the light that you get with it is studio quality. It was invented by a professional photographer, so it provides consistent soft light to a brightness that you desire to have.

Although perfect light and high-quality selfies are super nice, I wanted to mention additional perks of having it:

You know that time that you need the “flashlight” and it takes you forever to bring it up on a touchscreen. Well… You won’t have to worry about it.

You’ll have the right amount of light (unlike the regular flashlight) and did I mention the case flashlight doesn’t eat your battery. It’s within touch of a button.

I have to look for the keys in my purse and the parking lot is dark.

It’s really dark and I’m in high heels and the restaurant parking lot happened to be dark.

Cinemas… I think a can write a paragraph or two on that.

In the middle of the night

When something falls on the floor…

Takeaway:

If you have a pretty active digital social life (blogger, a public person or lots of Facebook friends), that’s 100% yes.

If you love selfies and you post or snap makeup photos, it is a yes! If you are always on the go, yes you should have it.

You may consider additional protection for a screen with it.

I hope I got everything covered and if you have any questions post them in comments. I would love to answer them if I can.

I hope my Lumee Case review is not too long. I wanted to cover all aspects of having Lumee Case and it helped you to decide if you need it in your life.

Best Concealers I Can’t Live Without + Hacks

concealer best concealer best under eye concealer under eye concealer best concealer for dark circles good concealer eye concealer best drugstore concealer concealer for dark circles
Best concealer is the topic that I chose for today’s post.I wanted to write a couple of posts about products I love and use on a daily basis. I am going try to film a video sometime soon. I have it on my to-do list!

Anyway, I will be having TONS of beauty posts on my blog – all that contains info about my favorite foundations, primers, serums, mascara, lipsticks etc. You can search through those posts in two ways, the first being using the “Beauty” tab up top OR use the “Search” bar on the left, upper corner! If you are new to my blog, my goal is to write at least one or 2 beauty posts a month if I can.

So what’s actually a concealer and is it ok to go without it. Basically, it is a highly pigmented foundation that will have to cover up minor imperfections. Concealers can be very tricky because sometimes and it really depends. One day your favorite concealer can work perfectly fine and next day it may appear powdery and flaky.

Ultimately you get what you pay for. I never had the problems with the circles with the eyes (and I religiously take vitamins and collagen which straightens the walls of underage that thins out with age. But recent allergy season that completely made me turn into a raccoon in the morning.

Best Concealer and #1 SOS undereye product of all times that conceals it all:

Bobbi Brown Corrector - Porcelain Bisque concealer best concealer best under eye concealer under eye concealer best concealer for dark circles good concealer eye concealer best drugstore concealer concealer for dark circles

Best Concealer: Undereye Bobbi Brown Corrector – Porcelain Bisque

Bobbi Brown Corrector – Porcelain Bisque • Bobbi Brown • $27

It takes a little bit used to due to its texture and may seem like a MAJOR splurge, but trust me, it is worth it and it lasts forever! Once you master it (less is more is the best strategy) and believe me it’s going to take some time.

It is probably the most natural concealer one have asked for. I mean it covers it all: sleepless nights, allergies, weird unidentified redness or purpleness. You name it… I refuse to travel with it and it has to be in my house within reach.

I always know where is that little jar at all times. I never misplace it (why one would misplace their best concealer right?). I just simply cannot live without it. You don’t have to even apply it all over. I apply it most of the time in the corner of the eye for no makeup look. It survives 8 hour boating day in high heat high humidity in Florida.

Best Concealer: Best in Blending  

Nars concealer best concealer best under eye concealer under eye concealer best concealer for dark circles good concealer eye concealer best drugstore concealer concealer for dark circles

NARS Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer • NARS • $30

If you are a newbie and you don’t really know how to bend evenly this is the one for you. Although after 6 hours it tends to get a little bit in the crease sometimes. But it’s a very easy fix. Let’s be honest you will be checking your makeup anyway by then.

Sooooo easy to blend. No issues. Lots of shades. No brainer. I use usually medium one although it’s a little bit too dark for me on my neck. It is actually common to have a lighter shade on one’s neck.

My weather conditions here in Florida are very demanding, it’s not ideal for the undereye area in high heat and humidity. But when it comes to face it works great! It saves me a lot of time when I want minimal makeup look.

Best Concealer: Waterproof

Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer concealer best concealer best under eye concealer under eye concealer best concealer for dark circles good concealer eye concealer best drugstore concealer concealer for dark circles

Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer

Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer – Clair 2 • Lancôme • $31

If you are looking for good old-fashioned mate camouflage it’s your guy. Really goes the long way. Good coverage very traditional texture. Just good classic value. Now it’s a little bit pricey.

I bought it and lasted me forever. I really got tired of it and I really wanted to try out other things but I felt like it will never end.

It is highly forgiving easy to work with and you don’t need much. Expect to use less than you usually use normally. I’ve met 95-year-old French woman that used Lancome exclusively all her like and let me tell her skin was ah-mazing!

Best Concealer: Dry patches, unevenness and other surface issues, scars.

Benefit Cosmetics Hide & Sheen Concealer and Highlighter Duo

Benefit Cosmetics Hide & Sheen Concealer and Highlighter Duo • Benefit Cosmetics • $14

Now I randomly picked it up at Sephora travel section and I tried it once and I did not quite like it at first. I don’t know why. It’s a little bit more pasty rather than creamy.

I decided to put it aside, but I happen to do some cosmetic procedures that year. I shaved biopsies (nothing too serious). It really takes time to heal and you have to follow a lot of rules and the healing usually takes a while. So you really cannot bother it a whole lot. You just have to wait it out.

Well, you know it’s kinda unrealistic just to go out with minor scars back in public. I happen to really rediscover it again and it stayed put on my face and on minor body scars until it healed up. It works great by itself but happens to disappear if you apply anything over it. If it matches your skin tone perfectly basically you want any blending at all. Surprisingly survived a pool day.

Best Concealer Hacks and Memos You Might Have Missed

Concealer hack #1 Moisturizing is a must. Sephora Collection Eye Mask • $5 • Sephora COPY LINK Shiseido Set of 24 Express Smoothing Eye Masks • $63 • QVC COPY LINK Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream • $52 • Sephora COPY LINK Bobbi Brown Women's Hydrating Face Cream • $58 • Barneys New York

Sephora Collection Eye Mask • Sephora • $5 Shiseido Set of 24 Express Smoothing Eye Masks • Shiseido • $63 Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream • Bobbi Brown • $52 Bobbi Brown Women’s Hydrating Face Cream • Bobbi Brown • $58

Above all moisturizer is a must. Due to a higher concentration of the pigment if your skin or under-eye are not moisturized properly. You can put the most expensive concealer everyone brags about and you will see it turn patchy and pasty within the first couple of hours.

If you happen to skip on your skin moisturizing routines recently, I found a quick mask is a good idea (if you don’t have time I just put it on my under-eye areas and lips only in the morning when I’m in the rush. Although masks should become your best friends.

Concealer hack #2

SOS Moisture may come in handy. If you don’t have time for a mask have a good moisturizer handy. The one like to use I bought in a travel size once again. And later upgraded all of them to regular size. This was the time I never looked back on spending a little bit extra.

Concealer hack # 3 Brushesbrushes concealer best concealer best under eye concealer under eye concealer best concealer for dark circles good concealer eye concealer best drugstore concealer concealer for dark circles

EcoTools Ultimate Concealer Duo • EcoTools • $5.99 Bobbi Brown Concealer Brush • Bobbi Brown • $29 Bobbi Brown Concealer Blending Brush • Bobbi Brown • $34 Eco Tools EcoTools Correcting Concealer Brush • EcoTools • $3.14

I have 3 different brushes depends on a concealer that I use and what needs to be accomplished. Overall favorite is Bobbi Brown brush and at the moment of purchase, it felt pretty overrated butIi was like… whatever I was splurge shopping anyway. Then I did not figure it out right away because it was smaller than I was used to. I had a couple of Ecotools brushes before it.

They will be coming up soon. But it proved itself right. It maneuvers so good and gets in all the problematic unreachable spots where nothing. Mine has a lid. Also, it is so easy to use you don’t even have to ha a technique or moves down just pretend you paint over with it. It was seriously refreshing and also I have noticed I haven’t been waisting a lot of product using it.

Thanksgiving Planner + Download

Is it a cocktail party with a few signature drinks with a couple of the appetizers? Is the buffet with a drink station?

Is it a brunch with the friends and loved ones?

Is it an elegant dinner with festive savory dishes?

Is it traditional dinner (or maybe with a twist) with the family and friends?

Planning the party

So you’ve got the visual ✅ and it is realistic and manageable ✅ since you are planning to enjoy it too. You may choose to assign your guests dishes to bring.

Time and Place

Specify the time range clearly (2-3 hours should be plenty of time for your guests to enjoy it) and also mention the address. Make your space work for you and think of creative ways to make it cozy and not cramped. Arrange some additional seating.

Thanksgiving Guest List

Make a list and update their contact information the sooner the better, so it will give them plenty of time to respond.

Planning the menu

Think of flavors, your family traditions, some holiday classics…
Be considerate and compassionate to all your guest’s backgrounds, don’t forget some vegetarian (and maybe vegan) and allergen-friendly recipes.

Go over the recipes. Print, copy, save or pin them whichever way will be more convenient for you to and make them into a shopping list.

Now let’s do some calculations. Make sure you have enough space in your refrigerator and plenty of ice.

I personally feel that when it comes to drinks you should prepare for buy some extra.
If your friends love different drinks, it’s ok to ask them to bring your own alcohol. Make sure you have basic mixers and bar essentials.

Style The Thanksgiving Party

You can style the table with acorns, apples, leaves, branches, pumpkins, squashes and walnuts, harvest paper wraps, pumpkin or pinecone place cards, candles, cranberries, votives, ribbons.
Don’t forget to add sparkle to your decor!

Thanksgiving Music

Creating a nice vibe that will inspire you and set the mood for your family is also important. I found you some Thanksgiving music that everyone would love: cool and eclectic. I personally tested those playlists last Thanksgiving.

Aluminum Free Deodorant That Works

An aluminum-free deodorant that works… Have you ever considered getting one?

If you haven’t ever my gorgeous reader, it’s time and here is why…

I came across this 😱😱😱 video not so long ago and I couldn’t help myself but share it with you.

I want you to pause everything you are doing and watch this shocking 😱💀 video. I hope you will find the time to watch it.

😡😤😠, right?

I was just seriously frustrated how we don’t know anything about it and how we all doing the things that “work just well” in our everyday life and never pay attention or never question our routines.

Noone wants to have a BO!

Don’t get me wrong I don’t want to smell bad or have a BO, but did I know that I’ve been paying a big price for it? Did I know the trade-off?

Question your routines!

I was just doing my own thing and never ever have I thought it could mess with my health… what if someone’s health has been compromised and they are harming themselves further and further without knowing it?

There is a lesson to be learned here: Question your routines! Make some changes to them and make them more mindful from now on.

In the end of the article, I am giving you the link to the one that REALLY likes!

But you might want to try different ones and it may take you some time to figure out exactly the aluminum-free deodorant that you would like.

So I was on a HUNT…

I wanted to find an aluminum-free deodorant that smells delicious and I wanted it to work!

Furthermore, I wanted it to be:

  • With 24-hour odor protection
  • With no chemical propellants
  • Only natural and/or organic ingredients
  • No animal testing
  • NO: Aluminum, Butane, Parabens, Phthalates or Artificial Fragrances

So I came across those ones, I tried them all and I personally recommend them.

You can buy them from Amazon and Jason Dry Spray Deodorant in Soft Rose smells like luxury perfume. It literally smells like roses and it really works!  I live in Florida and most of the time it’s way too hot so that’s my must have.

How To Use The Art Of Not Knowing To Build A Life Of Your Dreams

Sometimes in spite our best efforts we find ourselves being challenged. We lack clarity…we lack direction. No matter what we do the answer doesn’t come. It gets harder as we try to represent when we don’t know what we stand for. But before you start beating yourself up I want you to read this quote:

“…the writer is one who, embarking upon a task, doesn’t know what to do… but in doing so he places himself…

— “Not-Knowing” Donald Barthelme

You may not be a writer, but the quote still makes sense, which brings us to some good news and some bad news:

GOOD NEWS: If you find yourself in a not-knowing land that simply means you are at the foundation of all things.

BAD NEWS: The clarity will not come and knock on your door. You cannot cash out not-knowing either. You cannot pour it into the glass, you cannot put it on your bread and you cannot put it in your wallet.

So what happens next? How does one deal with not-knowing and avoid getting stuck?

What do you do if you find certain pleasure and contentment in status quo (aka stuff doesn’t have to be figured out)?

My advice is:

  1. Set the change in motion.
  2. Maintain momentum. Things are happening to you now. Stay with it.
  3. Continue on the success path.

Not-knowing can become a cozy blanket, whereas clarity is the result of you waking up to the alarm and get things done.
