The Real Guide To The Best Faux Plants

Plants silently scream when I near them. In fact, the other weekend I was at a baby shower and the mother of the dad to be really wanted me to take home a begonia centerpiece…I think I saw it shutter. I politely declined, explaining that plants and I…especially plants that needed to be replanted and cared for just weren’t my jam. With good intentions, I adopt them, place them outside and proceed to slowly kill them. So now, I decorate with faux plants. The only maintenance that needs to be done is a little dust off here and there. Time and time again I’m asked where I find my little greenies, so today I decided to create an epic roundup of the best faux plants for home decor.

Channel Elsa — Let It Go

January seems to be the month of organization, and with it being so cold outside, that’s exactly what I’m doing. But, because I’m such a hoarder of all things vintage, letting it go can be a very difficult thing. Almost anxiety ridden.

Get Your Home Holiday Party Ready

This post is sponsored by Sengled.

My neighborhood has a local moms group. Now at first thought that may not sound super awesome…or maybe it does? But it may conjure up thoughts of kids running around, babies crying, and talks of what preschool is the best. Ya no, this moms group is completely different. It’s our monthly excuse to go out at 7pm, sans children, drink wine, wear makeup, and feel non-mom-ish. Sometimes I even wear fancy shoes! Each month has a different theme at a different house. This month I’m hosting the Christmas party, and that means I’ve gotta get this house holiday party ready.

Get your home holiday party ready!

Since we are still fairly new to the neighborhood, only a couple neighbors have visited. The pressure is on…even though I know, it shouldn’t feel that way, yadda, yadda, ya…deep down it’s just the way I’m wired. I can’t help it. It’s not really a keeping up with the Jones’ per se, but more my perfectionism personality. It’s about creating ambience and wanting my guests to enjoy themselves, feel comfortable, and remember the time they spent at my home as enjoyable. So how will I avoid feeling frazzled for this soirée? I start by making a to-do list to get this home holiday party ready!

Pink & Green Modern Living Room

Sometimes I like to play if I had a million dollars, I might makeover my living room. Late at night I start scrolling through Pinterest and get lost for hours. The other day, a funky green tufted sofa caught my eye, and it got me thinking. That beauty would look mighty fine combo’d up with a pretty pink somethin’ somethin’. About 3 hours later, this is what I came up with…because when you’re unemployed, you have time to be creative and play around.
