Hello there everyone!
I truly can't complain too much about life lately-- it's been pretty darn swell. I feel really settled into my apartment here at college, and have begun having fun with decorating it. I am, of course, on a college student's budget so that consists of mostly thrifting decor or making it myself. I left a lot of my stuff though at home like my globe and my instagram wall prints, so I hope to bring those up next time I'm home! I also want to grab my clothing rack I used to hang my vintage store's stock on and just kind of display pretty things on it for looks. One thing I did definitely want to purchase new though was....SUCCULENT PLANTS! I have been really intrigued by these for awhile now and searched high and low for them. I got the suggestion to try Home Depot, and I went today and they had the best (aka cutest) selection. I picked up two: one a cactus and one a shorter leafed plant. I'm kind of nervous about them to be honest because I've never owned a plant before or done anything of the sort...I know they're the most low maintenance plants you can get, but I'm still convinced I'll end up messing them up somehow, ha. I thrifted some cute little pots for them to be re-potted in, so I'm looking forward to doing that maybe tomorrow. Any tips you all could give me on taking care of the plants/repotting would be so appreciated! ♥
Also, I've gotten a little bit into cooking recently, too! In my dorm the first two years I only had a microwave, so now that I have an oven and stove there's so many more possibilities...I mostly enjoy baking things. Muffins and biscuits. I fixed some sweet potato ones the other day and they were amazing-- yum, yum, yum!
Andddd my final obsession as of recently? Tea. I tried getting into drinking tea last year, but I just felt like it tasted like ahem, nothing, and would add a BUNCH of sugar to it to help the taste. Well, I eventually got out of drinking it because I felt it was just "meh," but my aunt got me some earl grey k-cups for my keriug for Christmas and I started using them recently. I drank it without sugar and was kind of amazed at how I could think last year that tea had "no flavour." Between that earl grey and bags of twinning's breakfast tea + some dessert tea I had from last year I've been drinking a cup or two a day. Mostly at night. I find it just so, so soothing and relaxing, and really helps clear my thoughts and wind me down after a long day. Mint is another favorite of mine-- it just gives me such clarity--and I look forward to maybe picking up some of that when I've finished off all of the tea I've accumulated thus far! Tea recommendations are welcome down below, as well :)
With much love, Lauren.
