May Food Favourites & Home Things (Days 295 & 296)

May food favourites copy

Due to a change in lifestyle, I’ve been exploring foods that I don’t usually eat and prepare. For example, did you know you can cook sweet potato in the microwave in only 5 minutes? I can honestly say that the above four ingredients have been consumed by me almost every day for the past few weeks. As I stated in a previous post, I like using sweet potato as a topping for kale salad. (Tip: adding raisons makes it extra delicious!) I’ve also been using flax seed in my cereal and oatmeal and I use honey to sweeten my breakfast meals. I also like to eat a banana every morning.

As well, I’ve ¬†been trying to liven up my life by purchasing more plants. The little guy down below is my first purchase. A “Pachira Aquatica” also known as a Money Tree! They are supposed to bring good fortune and good luck!


I’ve also purchased three air plants from a local seller and I can’t wait to incorporate those into my bedroom decor. I bought this air plant holder off of Etsy and I also found this old candle stick holder (below) at Goodwill for a dollar. Hopefully it will fit the other two air plants perfectly!


I can’t wait to show you the finished photos! Have a good weekend!



New House, New Room (Day 256)

Shades of white, earthy tones, air plants, wooden side tables, framed pops of colour; if I wasn’t a student on a budget, this is how I would decorate my new room in May. Instead I will thrift thrift thrift. But thrifting can be just as exciting as buying brand new.

Here are some beautiful decor pieces on Etsy that have been inspiring me. I won’t buy these things, of course (maybe just the planter) but these pieces make me excited for the new house.

I’m just really obsessed with air plants.

Animal Pillows by MosMea.


There is a not-so-subtle pillow theme inside of my head right now.

Also- I bought these cute little mugs at Target the other day for under $2.00 each. I think they will be lovely for the summer:


I can already envision the iced coffee that will be made in these.
