March is my birthday month, and my fiancé planned a surprise weekend trip to Austin for us. We did a little shopping and a lot of eating! The main thing on my agenda was to find a nursery to get some succulents for a terrarium project I’ve been wanting to do. I love the vitality that plants bring to a room. With a quick google search, we found Tillery Street Plant Company. It was an awesome little gem nestled in a quaint neighborhood. They had an amazing plant selection and the staff was friendly and helpful. (I asked for some tips about watering because I tend to over water.) I found everything I needed for my project. I didn’t really know what I was doing, so I just kind of winged it. It was fun to get my hands dirty! I am super happy with how it turned out. I hope I can keep the plants healthy and happy! If any of you have a green thumb, I’d love some tips!
Tillery Street Plant Company in Austin, TX.
Succulents for days.
I made a new kitty friend!
These were our final selections.
My glass bowl plus some potting mix.
Pro tip: Don’t spill it all over the floor like I did.
I added the plants, some gray rocks, and a crystal for good vibes.

It is July in Houston, TX and it is HOT!!! It’s sweltering even with the air conditioner running full blast 24 hours a day, but over the weekend, my AC went out. It was the fourth of July weekend, so maintenance was no where to be found. It was scorching hot! All I could think about was packing my bags and going on vacation somewhere with plenty of water and a nice tropical breeze. At least I got a chance to plan the perfect getaway outfit. I chose these cut up jeans to provide some coverage from the sun, but also provide plenty of air flow to keep cool. I thought this pineapple tank was absolutely adorable! He’s so cute with his heart-shaped glasses. I am absolutely obsessed with the fringy multi-colored sandals. Throw on a few chic accessories, some sunblock, and call it summer ready.
I’m completely obsessed with black and gold together. I live in a teeny tiny apartment, so I don’t have a dining room at the moment. I dream of the day I can have a larger space with plenty of room for entertaining. I want a formal dining room that doesn’t feel formal. I want it to feel glamorous, but also have an artsy whimsical vibe. Check out my favorite statement pieces to get the room going.

Bring on the fall weather! In Houston, TX we jump at any chance to pretend we have fall weather in the actual fall. It fell below 90 degrees this week, and I was ready to bust out my tall boots! It is mid-September after all. For now, I’ll just start dreaming and planning about all the layers of faux fur, leather, and suede I can mix together. I’m also currently obsessed with non-traditional lip colors. I’m ready to lose the summer brights and try something darker. This deep purple shade of Dolce and Gabbana lipstick would match so perfectly with this Henri Bendel bag.
