Hey y’all! My name is Ana Carolina and I am a minimalist. I suppose that these days everyone is saying that.

I started this blog to have an outlet to discuss my passion for minimalism and my journey.

This self discovery started quite some time back. I suppose that I’ve always been fascinated by minimalism (art, fashion, etc.). It wasn’t until about a year ago that I decided to make some major changes in my life. Almost three years ago my mother passed away unexpectedly. I tried to hold on to the memory of her by holding on to her possessions. This only got me so far.

Whenever I finally decided to wash every piece of fabric in my home is when I actually noticed how much “stuff” I was clinging to. I’ve had many ups and downs, but I know I’ve changed for the better.

I don’t own 100 items. I own an insane amount of things.

I don’t own only one pair of shoes. I actually own 29.

I am not vegan or vegetarian.

I am still very much so on my journey. This is neither a bad journey or one that will ever be complete. This is a lifestyle choice.

I’ve called this blog The Blys because through minimalism I’ve found my bliss. Hopefully I can share a bit of that with you, reader.

What brings you The Blys?
