9 Compact Humidifiers for Winter Air + Skin

Monday, January 7, 2019

It's officially the second winter in our Long Beach, NY apartment and I'm reminded about how badly my skin reacted after moving out of my parents' house. Being that I moved from New Jersey, only 2 hours away, this didn't make sense to me. If I didn't moisturize immediately after showering, my skin actually hurt from feeling so stiff; I had a few eczema flare-ups for the first time since high school, my scalp began to flake, and most recently, I'm suffering from that awful dry cough/tickle in my throat at bedtime. After much research (and I can't say I haven't heard this before... hi, denial) these side effects have to do with the heat inside your home. Indoor heat = dry heat, which explains my dry skin, dry scalp, dry cough, dry bank account, etc.

DIY Tassel Christmas Tree Garland

Tuesday, December 11, 2018

December 25th is creeping up and I'm still trying to get into the holiday spirit around the apartment. I had been keeping a mental note of all the Christmas DIYs I wanted to create this year, but seeing the abundance of xmas decor at every single store has me SO tempted to just buy, buy, buy! Guess that's exactly what they meant when they said, "'tis the season to be broke".

Guide to Christmas Tree Collars

Saturday, December 1, 2018

Call me a newbie, but I'm totally digging Christmas tree collars as an alternative to tree skirts. We purchased our very first tree from Michael's on Black Friday ― the 7ft. Pre-lit Full Willow Pine w/ clear lights. We would've loved to start a tradition & pick out a real tree, but we will be traveling in December and it would be absolutely awful to come home to a dead tree right before Christmas.

How to Grow New Succulents from Leaf Cuttings

Wednesday, November 7, 2018

Without a doubt, succulents are millennials' favorite household plant. They're compact, aesthetically pleasing, and most importantly — they don't require much attention. What's there NOT to love about succulents?! In fact, I fell even more in love with them once I found out that you can grow brand new succulents by simply clipping off a healthy leaf from the plant. This process is dubbed as Propagation: the breeding of specimens of a plant by natural processes from the parent stock, and I promise you, it's addicting AF. And free!

Cajun Glazed Pork Chops

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

Leaving mama's nest means one thing: you're on your own for dinner. When Nico and I moved into our own place, my sister-in-law sent me the most amazing pork chop recipe by Tasty. A little intimidated at first, because the only pork chops I ever knew were either breaded or grilled, I put off trying it out. 7 trials later and I'm practically stabbing myself for not trying this recipe sooner. If you're into spicy, I urge you on behalf of yo' tastebuds to make this as soon as possible. Your pork chop game will never be the same!
