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.

February is the month cupid flies around and shoots you with an arrow of stress — what to buy your Valentine. If you’re shrugging your shoulders, you’re in luck. I’ve rounded up a few of my all-time favorite Valentine’s Day gifts for him and for her. Let’s get shopping.
The weather in Chicago has been cold and snowy, so what’s a gal to do? Cook of course! When 8″ of snow fell last weekend, comfort food was in order, and I was craving stuffed shells in meat sauce. Plus, this recipe is too good (and easy) not to share. While the kids were outside sledding, I got to work inside.
Have you heard the hype about Marie Kondo and the Konmari Method? If you say no, I’m assuming you don’t watch Netflix or you’ve boycotted social media altogether. The new show, “Tidying Up”, is trending on Google as people look to organize their homes this January…which I’m sure the timing is no coincidence for the show’s debut. The interwebs are abuzz, and I’m curious to hear your view.
