  • Happy Friyayyyyyy! For some excellent weekend reading, head to the website to hear some *fascinating* words of wisdom from @_sarahwilson_ , who shares her thoughts on all things minimalism (and why she thinks the word's taken on a whole new, decidedly less minimal meaning). We spoke to Sarah – along with Treehugger founder Graham Hill, Courtney Carver from Project 333 and others – as part of the Living with Less feature in Issue 36 of Peppermint, which leaves shelves soon! We suggest you hot-tail it to your nearest newsagent to grab a copy, then put your feet up, slow down and dive in. 💚
