Little plan(t)s

Tomorrow I head out for Vegas on a week long conference trip. Hopefully I'm better prepared this time in terms of wardrobe. Aside from that, I wanted to show the new plants I've gotten over the past two weeks. I'm becoming slightly addicted to buying little plants. I'm afraid to buy big ones because I'm...

Last weekend was the flower show in the city. This weekend was the orchid festival at Longwood Gardens. Z and I are lucky to be near-ish to several amazing parks, garden centers, museums and arboretums. Longwood Gardens is well known for their seasonal displays. They always have something going on even though the rest of... Continue Reading →

Out of mind until reminded

This past weekend I deliberately broke my shopping ban in order to get a suit jacket and dress shirt. Because I don't really have enough time (unless I wanted to expedite shipping) to order anything online I headed to a nearby mall. After wandering several stores (Uniqlo, H&M, Banana Republic) I ended up in Macy's... Continue Reading →

Saving and propagating

My string of pearls nearly died entirely. I don't know what was going on with it, but I'm trying to save it now. I took what few strands were still good and put them in two little pots and put the pots in different rooms to see if they'd fare better in different areas. One... Continue Reading →

Shopping ban update

So it's almost March. How have I been doing with the shopping ban? Excellent, with one exception. On the business trip I was just on, I totally forgot to take my night shirt and didn't have any sleeping clothes! Major smack to the forehead moment for me when I realized that in the hotel room....

When does it stop

I didn't mean to suddenly disappear for a few weeks, but I'm feeling as if I'm on a merry-go-round in some alternate, hellish universe and wondering when it'll stop and I can get back to reality. Work has been very busy for me and two weeks ago I went on a conference trip. This was... Continue Reading →


I mentioned a couple posts back that I spent my Yesstyle credit on skincare stuffs. Here is the haul. I've used this Missha toner before and while I don't think it's necessary, it's a nice luxury to have since I had the money "credit" to use for it. In the haul photo up top there...

It’s only Tuesday

These photos are a mix of last week and this one. I've been so busy that I come home and blink and then find myself at work again. I feel stressed and busy in stupid ways like I was this time last year. I'm seeing a trend now with this company on busy seasons. The... Continue Reading →

Even keel

I didn't take too many photos this week. Mostly because it was extremely busy and weird for both Z and myself. I went to the doctor and got a script for physical therapy and to get an anti-depressant. I'd had enough and even though I didn't feel great about having to get one, I knew... Continue Reading →
