I can’t believe it’s May already! Last month was crazy. Between adjusting to my new life in Bellingham and starting my first quarter at Western Washington University, April just seemed to fly by.
First up on my list of favorites, is the ring pictured above. After living here for a couple of weeks, I noticed that a lot of people were wearing layers of lots of really cool rings. So when I stumbled upon this one at the farmers market, I knew I couldn’t leave it behind. Continue reading
The easiest way to swap out a plastic straws is to simply just stop using them. But for those of us who like using straws, here are a few options that are waste free. Continue reading
Last week I decided that I wanted to bring back some plants to brighten up my dorm room. The project started with a trip to home depot to pick up some plants (I actually tagged along with my dad who needed some stuff for our house) and while we were picking up wood to make shelving, I had the grand idea to make a planter for my succulents. I’ve always been obsessed with succulents and cacti, (ie…pinterest board) so it was only a matter of time before I bought one of these.

I’ve always been a huge fan of house plants, but my parents have been more skeptical. But this week, thanks to a trip to home depot, they are now the proud parents of two house plants. (I think the NASA study about house plants, helped to convince them.) I was dying to get them a fiddle leaf fig, but they are early on in their house plant journey, so we started out relatively small. My brother and I actually ended up spending a half hour in the house plant section of home depot trying to pick out one plant. (I picked the snake plant within the first couple of minutes.) After much deliberation, we finally settled on a dieffenbachia hybrid, also known as a dumb cane. So if you want to make your trip to the store quick, I would recommend deciding what kind of plants you would like to get ahead of time. Continue reading
