Lola is every bit the minimalist babe – she lives simply, is intelligent and sassy, emotional and strong, calm and composed. Realizing that less is more, she traded in material possessions to focus on what was truly important to her. Lola’s inspiring guide delivers real-world advice on how to consume less, clear out clutter, find authenticity, and live a life based on freedom. It is a sincere attempt to help those who want to end their obsession with stuff.
Echoing the thoughts behind Leonardo da Vinci’s quote that “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,” this book teaches you how to value the simple things. From learning to declutter and live with less to living life with passion, good health, and great relationships. The Minimalist Babe is for anyone who desires a more intentional life. Drawing from real-life experiences, it is filled with stories that will teach you step-by-step how to be:
Authentic, self-assured, calm and composed, mindful, minimal and self-sufficient, financially stable, purposeful, free, healthy and happy.
So what are you waiting for?

I have read many books on the minimalist subject, and whilst this books doesn’t offer anything new or insightful what is different is that this book is that I think it will cater more to the 20 something millennials rather than an broader all ages spectrum.
The author shares her experience in going minimalist and offers her tips and trick for what worked for her, broken down into 7 parts that covers – mind, body, soul, money, environment as well as freedom and the why?. Each chapter within each section are short and end with bullet points and a challenge.
At the end of the book is a master list if you will of tick boxes for each (mind, body etc) with the heading keep, minimise or throw. Good idea but some things on the list are not applicable to me and therefore blank lists would be better, but they are a good starting point.
Overall this didn’t offer anything new and insightful for me but I feel this would be the perfect book for someone young who is starting out on their minimalist journey.
