I never would have believed you if you told me I would spend so much time in my office this year. But of course we had a pandemic and like most people, I’ve spend a LOT more time working in my home office.

It’s been a little over two years since I turned one of our guest bedrooms into an office and it was about time to make a few updates.

For my office refresh I added a few extra plants, swapped out my cowhide rug for a chindi rug my sister was getting rid of, and added in a new chair and desk!

I was gifted the Flexispot ergonomic chair and standing desk and these items are exactly what I wanted for the office. I needed a chair that provides better support and I’ve really wanted a standing desk for those days when I need to stretch my legs.

My original office makeover was in early 2018 and I have to admit, I’m still LOVING the black and pink colorblocking. I like to pat myself on the back sometimes when I see that painting my walls black was actually on trend.

I’m excited to have a slightly more functional office space and hope I don’t have to make any more updates for a while.

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 →
