The Plant that Keeps on Giving: Pilea Sharing Plant

Google the phrase “Millennials and Plants” and you will find some interesting headlines, “The One Thing Millennials Haven’t Killed Is Houseplants”, “They don’t own homes. They don’t have kids. Why millennials are plant addicts”, and “Millennials are hiring consultants to raise their ‘plant babies’.”

2019-07-12-03.26.00-1I’ll be honest — I’m a rather typical millennial. I love traveling, avocado toast, fast casual food, instagram, online shopping, and of course — PLANTS. If a room in my house has a window, I have at least one plant in it. I counted, I have 10 plants and honestly… that’s not a lot compared to many other millennials out there.

Today I’m talking about the Pilea Sharing Plant. It’s one of the trendiest plants on social media and it’s a perfect plant to have in your home and share with others.

2019-07-12-03.26.04-1You can buy one of these plants at HOME DEPOT (that’s where mine came from). Home depot has a great assortment of houseplants an an AMAZING 1 year guarantee on their plants.

Another place to consider purchasing from is online at THE SILL (an entire site that’s basically dedicated to millennials and their plant addiction).

I purchased one for my sister for her birthday BUT I’m also selfish and wanted one of these plants for myslef. The great thing about these plants is that they’re easy to “share”. As the plant sprouts new branches you can split the plant and share the new growth with your friends! If you end up buying one of these plants (which you should) and want to share it with your firends (or family), here’s a quick tutorial of how to propagate your plant!2019-07-12-02.50.52-1 Continue reading →

Breakfast Hash: Make a Hearty Breakfast with Leftover Vegetables

We LOVE roasted vegetables in the Comer household. The first dinner William and I made together after “McFly” arrived was pan seared Salmon with smashed potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts. The meal was delicious – we devoured the salmon but had some veggies leftover.

I woke up the next morning and really didn’t want soggy cereal and that’s when this “recipe” came to mind! I used leftover potatoes and brussels sprouts to come up with a hearty and delicious breakfast hash.

To make this hash you really just need four components.

  1. Leftover Roasted Starchy Vegetable (potato, sweet potato, butternut squash, etc).
  2. Leftover Roasted Cruciferious Vegetable (broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, etc).
  3. Breakfast protein (bacon, country ham, sausage, etc).
  4. Egg (scramled, fried, poached, or sunny side up to go on top of your hash).

3 Under $30 Dresses That I’m Obsessed with + Postpartum Fashion

Today I’m sharing THREE cute dresses that look good on any body shape, but that are also super accomodating for a new (and nursing mom).

One of the hardest adjustments for me during pregnancy and over the last 5 weeks has been seeing my body change so drastically and so quickly. While pregnant, I had to watch my body change to adjust to growing a human…. and now it’s changing again as I lose the “baby weight” while also producing food to keep that human alive.

I’ve been so blessed that I’ve already lost about 70% of the weight I gained during my pregnancy BUT of course my body shape is completely different than what it was before and that means I can’t wear a lot of my old clothing. My hips are wider, my chest is bigger, AND I didn’t exercise at ALL while pregnant, so I have very little muscle definition in my arms and legs.

I went on the hunt and found three dresses you can wear for different activities; fun, work, and relaxation.

FUN: Button Front Tiered Maxi Dress – $29.99

Who doesn’t love a good maxi dress? This look is perfect for a summer picnic or casual backyard BBQ. This dress has functional buttons but it’s also lightweight. The printed fabric screams “SUMMER” to me.

V-Neck Strappy Button Front Tiered Maxi Dress

This dress is extremely comfortable and I can see it transitioning well into early fall. It would pair well with a demin jacket and suede boots.

The dress runs a little large to me. I orginally ordered this dress in a size medium but had to exchange it for a small. This small is actually still a little big (and long) on me.
