I told the boy recently that in place of flowers (which ideally he would be buying me once a week but I'll be happy with every once in a while) he should start purchasing me succulents. Now that we are on the second floor and have so much light, house plants (that I can hopefully keep alive) are my decor of choice. They are the epitome of chic especially when kept in metallic pots like the below (which are such a great and easy DIY project) .
Now if only I had my Mom's green thumb then they would probably last a lot longer then a month.
