Air Plant





I needed an air plan for a midterm project that I'll share soon and of course that's the best reason to get one — wink, wink. As you know, I got some cacti few months ago and not too long ago, and I decided to repotted them a little while ago. Unfortunately, they're dead and I don't know why. Is it because I didn't get a new soil for it? I don't know. 

I went to a beautiful plant store called Utsawa Floral Design at the Tenderloin (don't worry, I went to the safer area). It wasn't hard to spot the store and once I went inside I felt like a kid in a candy store. I can't stop smiling, the whole store is filled with gorgeous plants, never thought I'm a plant person but hey, I learn something new everyday. There were so many cacti and succulents, I can't get over it. The owner kindly gave me a very, very, very helpful guide on how to take care of the air plant — spray once every 4-5 days at night, bright indirect sunlight is the best, give the plant some fresh air. 

Now I have this little guy hanging near bed, looking all fancy and hopefully it will stay with me a little longer than my cacti.

What do you think of air plants?

Boo


Halloween is almost here and I never really celebrated halloween because it was not a very popular thing to do back in Bali. I do love the idea of trick or treating (imagine all the candies and chocolates!!!) but the sad truth is I think I'm a little too old for that. I've spotted some houses with the halloween decorations and I have to say, people in America takes halloween very seriously, those houses with amazingly carved pumpkins, spider webs, little ghosts, and all that jazz. I don't know what I'm going to do on halloween yet (if I'm doing anything at all). But here's a super easy halloween inspired nail art for you!

Colors I recommend:
Cleopatra, Eliana, Hope, Nicolette from Julep

What are you going to do on Halloween?

White Jeans

forever 21 cardigan // zara top // stradivarius jeans // forever 21 loafers
White jeans is something that I find hard to style. Why? If you have shorter legs like I do, you'll know that it's though to make it look flattering and let's face it, I'm scared that I'll spill things on it (the reason I have my Tide to go with me at all times). I decided to wear it with these loafers that I love way too much and talk about way too often that elongates my legs and make the jeans look flattering. I have to say that white jeans look great with heels but let's face it, I don't have the energy to walk around in heels all day. And then, I threw on some stripes t-shirt (that I wear too often, just like my loafers) and long knitted cardigan to make everything look more relaxed.

How do you style white jeans?

Camel and High-Waisted


Messily tucked in loose white button-up, high-waisted shorts, and camel coat/blazer. Not quite autumn yet, but it's definitely cooling down — finally.
