Resin plant decoration

How CUTE is this… thing?

Yet another result of spending too much time on Aliexpress and buying things that are cute but totally unnecessary for the house. This is a plant decoration made out of resin (which I think is hard plastic, pretty much). There are loads and loads of these types of decorations on Aliexpress so it must be a real thing in Asia.

I bought mine here for roughly $1.

Macaroon storage box

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I bought this macaroon storage box off of Aliexpress a while back, and it just arrived in the mail. I actually saw this initially at Urban Outfitters but never bought it, so I figured I would now that it was so cheap. I paid $1.5 for mine and shipping took roughly 2 weeks.

It’s super cute and tiny, and probably completely pointless as nothing really fits into it.

I figured it would make great for keeping on your night stand so you could put your earrings in it whenever you needed to take them off before going to bed. It would also work great as a pill box, or for keeping small jewellery in while travelling.

Also a fan of pointless cute things? Buy yours here!

(Also, if I was wearing lenses, I would TOTALLY buy this to go with it)

Growing tomato plants (amongst other things…)

I present to you… my latest hobby!

I have never grown anything from scratch (or, seeds) before, so I have literally called my mom asking her about every single step. Turns out it wasn’t that hard, though. Plus, google is your friend – I’m convinced there isn’t anything you can’t google the answer to.

If I could turn back time a month I would have made sure to remember to name what kind of plant was in each pot. Rookie mistake, I guess. Most of them are tomato plants anyway.

Just look at this beauty!

We’ll just have to see how these turn out, but I would definitely do this again. It’s so much fun watching them grow from day to day!

Kate Moss and I

I spent the afternoon drawing things to decorate our rather dull walls with. I had an idea in my head that I wanted to draw celebrities in different styles, but ended up just drawing Kate Moss and Kanye West.

My boyfriend asked me who “that girl” was, so I guess I must have failed, but I still quite like how it turned out (and to be honest – I don’t think he knew who she was even when I explained).

I should probably clarify that I am not an artist nor Kate Moss’ biggest fan, but girl has a nice face.
