Hi! My name is Ashley and I’m the creator of The Litestyle. Welcome!
I began this website with a mantra in mind: minimalism is about appreciation, not deprivation.
So many minimalist websites, blogs, and books are keen to tell you how and why to get rid of “stuff”, but are less focused on how and why to appreciate the things you choose to keep.
I think having the right “stuff” is actually great – but having stuff that serves no practical or aesthetic purpose is both wasteful and exhausting.
My goal is to explore how objects can support and enhance our daily lives without generating excess.
The Litestyle is a place for me to share my thoughts and tips on easy travel, capsule clothing, simple food, uncluttered homes, and all things useful and beautiful. Enjoy.
