Happy, happy Friday! This week was a super busy one with work, so I’m excited to unwind this weekend with the H Street festival, a friend’s party, and a little shoot at my apartment on Sunday with a local company that I love (more on that soon!).
Thank you so much to everyone who took my reader survey this past week, which I linked to in last Friday’s post! I generally shy away from feedback but am so appreciative of everyone who chimed in. It sounds like interiors and personal posts are the most well-received, so I’ll certainly keep doing those–and I’ll continue to add plenty of DC-related content but not too, too much, since many of you don’t live in the area. Fashion/beauty posts are less popular among this group, which is fine with me–I like to do those posts from time to time, but that area of blogging is already pretty saturated as it is. However, I will note that I have some different types of posts queued up for next week, so I’m excited to share these with you guys, too!
I wanted to share a new product that I love (more on that below) as well as a great resource for buying plants–Whole Foods! Sure, every city has its boutique plant shops–and I love those as well–but Whole Foods has had some affordable, aesthetically-pleasing options lately, so I wanted to share them with you on here.
Last month, I fell in love with this little terrarium (it cost $30, but it’s so worth it–it adds so much life to a space!) and this little box of succulents (only $10!). Both were featured in my recent room shoot with Heather, so I finally have some nice pics of them. The best part about these plants is that they require minimal care–just water them once a week or so (I honestly think you can likely get away with even less than that), and they’ll be fine. Plus, how cute are they for a small apartment?
The product I wanted to share is my new candle from Otherland. Elizabeth had the “rattan” scent burning when we shot her Houzz tour in September and I knew I had to scoop up one of my own. I love supporting small, women-owned companies, and Otherland is no exception. The smell is so amazing and the packaging is super cute, too!
What products are you loving lately? I love hearing about new brands (particularly for decorative accessories and the like), so send any recs my way!
