When I was assigned an article that included basic container gardening, I instantly went for succulents and cacti. That was a courageous move given that the first echeveria (those rosette looking succulents) I brought into my home survived only a month.
Earlier this year, I tried tinting some bottles I’ve collected. I was on a tinting spree once I got the method down pat. I used them to decorate the condo. At first, my Dad thought I bought them from somewhere. But, like I always say, “Why buy when you can DIY?”
I’ve been living in my current condo for over a year now. I’ve moved so many times in my life. I’ve had 12 addresses in my lifetime! I’ve never really effort to make any place I live in a home. As long as I had a bed and a microwave, I was all good to go.
My fambam was over for the holidays. This time, my Dad wanted to turn the condo into a home. By that, he meant replacing furniture, installing light fixtures, and adding decoration.
I captured some of the changes on instagram. How do you think we did?

I’m that type of girl who would prefer an unconventional bouquet over flowers. I never had a green thumb, so I’d feel really bad when they die. Balloon bouquet. Fruit bouquet. Pencil bouquet. Until recently, I really had no appreciation for flowers. So, if you’re anything like me, here’s one bouquet that would certainly brighten up a room and is sure to last for weeks, months or longer.
