Plant Experiment: No. 1

Let me start off by saying <I like to plant plants when I'm stressed> ..... Guess how stressed I've been lately??? hahaha. OMG. I mean, I'm not complaining! I'm always stoked to have more plant babiesss!

My Dude and I decided to just take a day and do whatever we wanted... No plans. Just "Hey how about this " type thing. So we got up and had breakfast and went to the mountains! We took ziplock bags to collect rocks and have an adventure! When we were done with being in the mountains, we went to this little thrift shop and walked around. While we were there we saw a few of these plants that WEREN'T POTTED IN SOIL! I hadn't seen this before so I thought I would give it a go! 

CHICKEN & WAFFLES

@ Pig In A Jelly Jar - SLC, Utah

We decided to go get some brunch! And we had never eaten at Pig in a jelly jar before. Best Choice. Like, HOW FREAKING DELICIOUS DOES THIS LOOK! It is BY FAR the best chicken & waffles -IN UTAH!!!- <That's an Important detail> Because we ALL KNOW who the best is... Roscoe's... hands down.... IT'S IN THE NAME...

Side Note: How freaking cute is My Boyfriend? Like, he will just collect rocks with me?!? He is always down for anything and everything! I really am the luckiest. Best Fucking Friends. <3

I have no idea if I am doing this right or not.. I literally just looked at the plants in the thrift store and went home and attempted it. They are already starting to grow more roots! I will eventually have to transplant these into bigger pots.

Tip: Always collect ROCKS! Always! Whether it be 1 or 100... You can decorate your plants or terrariums with them! :D I've always collected rocks and little pieces of nature... since I was a little babe. But eventually, I'd end up with bags of rocks that I would have to just throw away or dump my sand! I HAVE NOW DISCOVERED A WAY TO KEEP MY TREASURES!!! Collect sand from the beach, take it home and put it with a cactus! You now have a cute little plant to remember that trip! I have made so many!! Sand and rocks from my family trip to Lake Powell, Our trip with My Dad to the Grand Canyon, Rocks from my grandparent's house at Thanksgiving, etc. 


Let me know what you think!!! (: 

UNTIL NEXT TIME, LOVELIES <3

Plants on Plants on Plants!!!


Who doesn't LOVE Plants?!?! I mean, seriously!! I just want them everywhere! 

1.jpg

Holy Moly! I am so obsessed with my shelf! Perfect for, ya know, Plants (; haha Anyways.. I have had those baskets (the ones hanging in the corner) sitting in a box for a few months now. I haven't known what to do with them. I just knew I'd be able to find them a spot... eventually!(;  I love how just one or two things will give me so much more inspiration! Kawande and I went thrifting and found a few magical things and BAM! I even find inspiration for things I already had!!(:

A lot of people think that plants are an insane amount of work... I guess some of them are crazy difficult! (Those are the ones I can't seem to keep alive!) Lol. I just figure out which ones I can or can't keep alive by trial and error! I try to choose plants that are super low maintenance. I will touch on specific plants on a separate post!


I absolutely LOVE cacti! Especially ones that grow all sorts of crazy! At the time I bought it, I had no idea this one would grow like this!!! Chikka Chikka Yeahhh! 

Honestly, Hanging Plants are my favorite way to go! Especially if you're low on space! Or need to find something to fill an awkward corner or window!!

I have hanging plants ALL over my house! If there is a stud for me to screw a hook in, I'M GONNA DO IT!!! Not even lying. Lol. Hang a plant and throw a rug under it! Or little table! or another plant... hahaha <3 

I don't have a problem, YOU DO!!! <3

- Geometric Triangle Shelf -

-I AM SO IN LOVE!!!-

Oh my goodness! I seriously cannot stop staring at our new shelf! ISN'T IT THE MOST GORGEOUS THING YOU'VE EVER SEEN?!?! I sent my dad a picture of a shelf that I saw on Instagram. It was some sort of store display... I was like, "Do you think this is something you could make?" and My Dad went and got all the wood and just built and stained the thing. Like, no measurements, no instructions, just straight up looked at a picture and built T H I S!!! The first time he brought it over, it was in 2 INCHES too big! Lol. We laughed about it but it was a total bummer!! So he took it back to his house, cut 8 inches off the bottom, and put it back together!! In less than an hour! -HOW!!!- He had to do that perfectly for it all to match up!! We brought it back to my house and he put the two halves together! 

This has changed up our kitchen entirely!! I had tapestries and scarves hanging up and different tables/wicker shelves! Everything was bright and colorful!... Like, whattttt?!?! It looks so much better! Just clean and earthy! I liked it before, but I AM OBSESSED NOW! All I really want in my kitchen is this shelf and -PLANTS! - PLANTS! - PLANTS!- I want plants all over this shelf! -All over the floor! -Hanging Everywhere! I JUST WANT THEM ALL OVER MY HOUSE! They make me so happy!!!<3


Ps. I found basically everything on this shelf Thrifting! <3 Shocker! haha. Well, mostly all the things in my house, really! Lol. 


-Meet ze Papa!!! Troy!!- 

He has also made me a small triangle, tiny octagons, a moon, and Mountains!! Not sure if ya'll would be interested in seeing those or not, but I will probs do it anyway (; 

Shout Out to the Pops <3 

I Really Dig Anatomical Shit!(:

HomeMack PettitComment

I'm never sure how to start these things... Like, kinda how a comedian needs an opener for their show... Only this isn't a show, and I'm not a comedian. haha. So, maybe not the same thing. *Welpppp* haha. 

edit1.jpg

K... Do you guys obsess over your homes as much as I do with Ours?!? (If not, lets fix that!!) Anyways...I found the dopest little anatomy figure the other day!!! Like, whaaaaaaaaa??? I'm not really sure if anyone else thinks this is cool or not... But I about fuckin' died when I found it!!! It was in a plastic bag on the wall at Savers... In the kid's section, I might add! It had a few other toys in there that I didn't want, so I just donated them back! It was $3.00 for the whole bag. Totally worth it! (; 

I'm not sure what it is about bones and the human body... I just really dig it all! Anything that is super unique and out of the ordinary has a spot in my house (; I'm seriously soooo stoked that Kawande let's me do whatever I want (; And he always LOVES whatever I decide to do! He really is so wonderful and supportive!(; I mean, I don't decorate like your average human. But on the real though, He always helps me pick where to put things! Or where we should hang something. Because I can't really make a decision to save my life (; haha 

ALSOOOOO, I may or may not have hung a mirror here just so I can have this view from our kitchen!! <3 I'M OBSESSED! I think I'm just going to look for a ton of random geometric mirrors to fill up this whole wall (: We'll see! 

If you find any super dope anatomical shit, USE #GOLDIEBONES I'd LOVE to see it!!! 

UNTIL NEXT TIME, LOVELIES <3

Things to know about Money Trees!!!

.Things to Know About Money Trees. 


I picked this little guy up at the store, like I physically picked him up... so... I clearly had to buy it. We bonded. Lol. But I wanted to plant it in something medium sized to keep it growing a little bit. Then I'll transfer it into a bigger pot (: I have had a money tree for a little over two years now (: And it's gettin' pretty big! But this is about our new little babe! 

Isn't it the cutest?! I thought I'd plant it in a GOLD pot cause... You know... the whole Money thing... (; The first money tree I got was from IKEA! And it was already pretty huge!!! I got it for like $10!!! It was a total steal for sure! 

We could play "I Spy" haha! I Spy with my little eye a wizard!! Or... Maybe a Baby dice... How about a knight?... What about a baby deer??? I usually just buy something if I like it, then find a place for it later on! But I feel like it all somehow flows!! (: 


-Tips & Tricks-

  • Brown Crispy Leaves are a sign of dry air or low light levels. Move it to a spot where it gets a good amount of sun(indirect)
  • If you're not used to having plants, I would suggest getting a pot that has a hole at the bottom for drainage!(: 
  • Don't put next to heating//AC unit. It likes temperatures around 60-75°F/16-24°C
  • Water thoroughly, but let enough drain out so it doesn't get soggy and moldy! 
  • Wait for the soil to get pretty dry before watering again! 
  • The size of the tree can be controlled by the size of its pot. If you want to keep it the size of a bonsai, keep its pot small!
  • It can get up to 10 ft tall if you keep transplanting it into bigget pots!!(This is hopefully what this little guy will do)
  • Avoid getting water on the trunk, it causes stem to rot
  • Water less frequently in the winter time. It's not in a growth cycle.

OH MY GOODNESS!!! It looks so darling! This is a view in my kitchen! Another thing... I am obsessed with mirrors! I want them EVERYWHERE!!! It will open up any room!! I swear!! Do it!!! This mirror was $7 at Savers (; So, it's totally affordable! Ps. I will FOREVER be obsessed with my front room!!! Sorry 'bout it!(;

---My Biggest piece of advice.... DON'T CARE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK!!!---

I usually get this response...

"Ewww. you seriously go get stuff that other people have had in their house?"

UH YES! Yes I do. It might not be for everyone. Everything I buy, I CLEAN! Like, Deep clean the shit out of whatever you get. It's that simple!! I have found some things that I am so in love with but it can't be saved or cleaned and that is always a sad day! haha. It doesn't happen often! but it does!   

If you love it, that is ALL THAT MATTERS!! Seriously. There are quite a few people who don't vibe with my house. And that's cool too! (: 

I don't onlyyyyy shop thrift. These are some of my favorites: At Home, Ross, Target, TJ Maxx, Worldmarket, Urban Outfitters and IKEA. I always seem to find superrrr cute stuff at these places!! World Market and Urban Outfitters are a little bit on the pricey side, but hey, if you got it!!! (; 

  • ANOTHER THING!!! My paychecks don't stretch too far! So don't think I'm just rollin'! haha. Living in a space that I love to be in is super important to me! So I will set aside $20-$40 here and there and pop on over to Savers! (:

PLANTS. PLANTS. PLANTS.

You can get superrrrr cute plants at Home Depot, IKEA, Lowes, Cactus & Tropicals(If you're local), Paradise Palms(Again, local) and Walmart(Sometimes)! I know there are more, but these are my go-to's! 

Plants add soooo much to any space! I know... something you have to keep alive! *gasp* Not all plants are hard to take care of! I have figured out which ones I can and can't have in my house! I haven't always been able to keep plants alive! I have totallyyyyy killed some plants along the way... quite a few actually!!! Don't be ashamed! Do some research! You'll get the hang of it!! If you don't know where to start, I will be posting a full on step by step process soon! 

Well, I hope someone got something out of this! If no one reads this, that's cool too (; If you just like to see how weird my shit is, that's also rad! (;
