HOUSE OF MODERN HORRORS // EVERYDAY

You know what’s scarier than a ghost? When the tag is sticking out of someone’s shirt. You know what will make any civilized person cringe?

what I own does not define me

This really intrigues me. I’ve been struggling recently with the concept of “what I own does not define me” in order to downsize. It’s really fascinating to see someone make such amazing use of small space. We tend to think the more money we have the older we get, we need MORE MORE MORE and […]
