As a fan of the Refinery 29 Money Diaries, I’ve been wanting to track my spending for a week. However, I never got around to doing a money diary until I randomly decided to start tracking last Thursday.
So, if you’re nosy and/or interested in where I threw money at last week, please keep reading.
Plants are having a moment. So much so, “plant lady” is the new “cat lady”. Even I was bitten by the plant bug and acquired a few plants this year. However, adding plant vibes to your space can be very time consuming. Although there are many low maintenance plants out there, even they may need more attention than you have to give.
Thankfully, there are plenty of ways you can add the look of plants and greenery without having to buy real, water-needing plants. Like I mentioned, I’ve acquired a few plants this year and it has been difficult. I even have a slowly dying plant in the corner of my living room to prove it. Keep reading to see 3 ways you can add “plants” to your space without having to add plants to your space.

No, I’m NOT pregnant and I’m trying to keep it that way. However, my youngest sister is pregnant and due this fall. Recently, she started delegating those of us in her inner circle with our responsibilities for her baby shower. Since she knows that I’m not into throwing parties, she gave me the simple and relaxing task of sending out baby shower invitations. She’s having a boy, which means I’ve been pinning and screen capturing every boy and/or shade of blue invite I can find. While on this adventure to find adorable baby shower invitations, I was introduced to invitation site Basic Invite.
Need to send out invitations soon? Well, read this before your make that order and then thank me later.
Up until my mid-20s, I used to hate traveling for vacation. It was just an absolute headache and that was back when I didn’t have to be responsible for any of the financing. However, I eventually learned to not only like traveling, but love it. I was able to do this my simplifying as many elements of traveling as possible, starting with creating a guide to packing for vacation.
When I pack for vacation, I start by being realistic of what I’m going to need. I loathe over-packing. Not only are your carrying around waste, but depending on if you’re flying, it can cost you a lot of money. So, I’ve become very conscious of what I really need to bring when on vacation.

Minus the basic denim shorts and basic tees, here’s what I include in my guide to packing for vacation.
