Planting Succulents

posted on: Monday, July 21, 2014

This Summer I've learned something quite interesting about myself, I enjoy getting my hands a little dirty, yes a little dirty. I don't know what it is but there's something therapeutic digging and getting your hands in the soil. Last Summer when Matt and I moved in together we rented and so I didn't do much weeding and "out doorsey" stuff. October we bought a house then winter was here, and now Its summer and I can't believe I actually enjoy being outside and just doing "stuff!" When I was living with my parents I didn't do diddly squat. They'd ask me 100 times to just water flowers, and it was such a hassle for me! (Sorry Mom and Dad!) Well, that was a really long explanation to say that I now love gardening and succulents. 
Now I'm no PRO at succulents this is just what I have personally done and that has seemed to work. It worked well enough that my little succulents are still alive so to me, that's success!
I bought these little babies at Horrocks as well as the little pot. The soil and stones I purchased at a local Home Depot.
So first STEP
1 // Because I don't know anything about planting, and I didn't know what to do about the hole in the bottom of the pot, so I legit cut a plastic plate and shoved it down in the bottom. Now I understand that's a bit "jankey" but oh well it worked! (It's probably there for a specific reason so if any of you know you're more than welcome to share ha-ah!)

2 // I poured the soil to fill the entire pot and placed the stones on top then mixed them all together. I also watered the soil to add some moisture to it. I don't know why I did this It's just what Southern Living said to do sooo that's what I did!

3// I gently took the little succulents out of the containers and made two holes in the soil and gently placed them in the holes then filled the spaces around them with more soil.

4// Then I just put some stones on top of the soil and super gently tucked them under the plants!

annnnd VOILA!

I hope you enjoyed this mini tutorial it was super simple and pretty self-explanatory! Hope you guys have a super week!

Apologies for being so MIA lately! Life gets pretty busy sometimes but really, thats no excuse.. I'm hoping to post much more the rest of the summer now that few things are slowing down and are starting to get better, so I'm hoping I will get to devote to Sunny more! 

I pulled some pieces from my favorite place ever Polyvore and threw a few things together that I think are great summer essentials | wish list. Especially that ice cream cone right in the corner. 
Hope you're all doing well and hope you're having a lovely summer!!

It's quite baffling to me that it's already June. Now that Summer has rolled around Matt and I have been doing lots of projects around the house and as I was scrolling around pinterest I found some of these gems that have me even more excited to do little "up-grades" on our home!

Although it isn't Memorial Day yet I thought I'd throw together a little inspiration that would be adorbess to wear on the actual day! I don't know about you but I feel like my "wardrobe tradition" (is that even a thing??) on Memorial day is usually a striped dress!  I found this one and was gushing over it so I thought I'd put a little wish list together! 

Happy Friday Guys!!!

Stripes on Floral

posted on: Friday, April 25, 2014

Sandal Heels LuLu's // Striped Crop Top Forever 21 // Floral Skirt Old A Boutique in Saugatuck
First things first, please excuse my insanely pale bod. This girl did not have time to throw on self-tanner before this shoot! Now that that's said let me continue. haha..
I honestly was never daring enough to put stripes on florals, I thought It'd look quite "tacky." Then I was browsing Pinterest and saw thisthis and this  I was instantly sold. Let me take a minute and tell you how much I adore these heels. I have a REAL bad habit of getting shoes that don't go with anything, like bright teal sequin gold with ruffles heels that are gorgeous, but do not go with anything! (yes, those shoes that I just described do exist, I'll try to sneak them in a post here shortly!) So when I saw these shoes on Lulu's I thought they'd be great for a great statement piece, and they so are! They're super comfortable and truly go with anything! Now I should probably wrap this post up before I keep rambling! Hope you guys have a terrific weekend!! xo
