Bringing Summer Inside – A Plant Photo Diary

I love a good houseplant.  It’s one of my favorite things to look around my room and see 8 plants scattered about.  I love little succulents and smaller plants because my workspace especially is pretty small so I have to accommodate.  Whether it’s potted plants, an air plant, or a vase of flowers, nothing brightens a room like something living. My plants make me so happy so I thought I would show you some of them with a plant photo diary.

There’s something about the little stones and trinkets that makes all my plants that much more special.  Beyond the bright green hues and pretty flowers, I scatter crystals from a shop by my house and other little things that brighten up the soil.

Whenever I’m feeling a little down, I get a new plant for my room and currently I have 8.  I love finding something unique to put in the dirt with my plants to make them more special and personal. Being responsible for plants makes me feel more responsible for myself, keeping my space clean, eating healthy, and drinking lots of water just like my plants.

Finding unique plants that aren’t as standard is always extra exciting to me.  I found one with soft white fuzz that’s so photogenic at a farmer’s market a few weeks ago.  My tiny orchid with purple flowers really pops in the sea of white walls and green foliage.  I have made my desk my favorite place to be with my plants and the little gems I decorate with.  You can also spot my plants in the background of lots of posts, especially Lush hauls (here, and here), my post about Glossier (here), and my pep talk and drugstore makeup look. I hope you enjoyed my plant photo diary, and I hope it inspired you to pick up plants for yourself.

  • These are so cute! <3 small plants can make a room look SO nice and sophisticated. I'd love to have fresh flowers in my room but literally any type of flower / plant triggers my severe hay fever. And fake plants just aren't the same, are they? I had a cactus once! xxx

    • Oh noo that’s terrible! I’ve always wanted a cactus but I’m afraid I would overwater it and kill it ahah! There are definitely some fake plants that look very real and get the same feeling, maybe you’ll come across one some day!

    • Thank you! The peace lily sounds awesome, even one or two house plants brighten a space and make it feel much happier!
