Today, we will not talk about the Manolos that I lost out on at the last freaking second on ebay. (There are some cruel people in this world). Nor will we mention the YSL shoes I didn't continue to pursue on Saturday.
Today, we will talk about something less vicious and a little bit more reliable : house plants.
Exciting. I know.
Growing up, I hated house plants. They were just so ugly with all of their "take over your whole house" persona. I never understood why people even bothered with them. But now that I have my own house, I see the beauty in having something green grow in your home. As part of my abundance of the x-chromosome condition, I absolutely love being able to nurture something and see it grow.
As much as I love ivy growing on the outside of a house....
I do not like it following me around the inside of my own.
Instead, I've been looking for prettier house plants. Here are a few inspiration pictures.

you can never go wrong with pink..
and you can cluster air plants for a pretty effect
and because I'm embarrassingly obsessed with dinosaurs (it's true..huda's fault) I would love to have these cool guys in my house
and for those who can't keep plants alive even if their lives depended on it, welcome to the sweet world of succulents..
So whether youre a plant killer or not, succulents are a gorgeous and easy way to add a little life to your home.
Inspired by these gorgeous shades, I stopped by Home Depot and picked up a few that I liked and planted them in a pretty pot.
And incase you're wondering what types of plants I got they are : 'Hibotan', 'Lola', 'Echeveria Mazarine', and 'Rainbow Elephant Bush'
So glad to be able to look at these on a daily basis..they make me smile :-)
