Honey Girl and Time is a Mother

Review: June reads!

Hi, it’s been a long time since I’ve properly updated this blog (other than the Junji Ito blog post!) — I’ve been reading a ton of great books lately, and I think you should check them out. Outside of work, I’ve been taking things slow […]

Goodwill San Jose

Where I’ve been…

I don’t know if I’ve ever had a hiatus quite this long. It’s definitely been a hectic past couple of months, and I’ve been working hard to create blogs (including plant and fashion ones!) plus other deliverables for my clients. As I’ve mentioned before, this […]

Callisia Repens

Plant Guide: Adding the callisia repens to my collection

Do you ever swing by your local garden center deliberately seeking out plants? Most of the time, I find myself wandering and looking for that next thrill. I’m not much of a rare plant collector, but I do love a relatively obscure-looking plant that I […]

It’s another plant haul

Hi, plant friends! I’m back with a quick plant haul post. Time flies by fast, right?! It’s been really busy on my end lately, but the good news is, I’ve been writing a lot of informative plant content with Happy Sprout — check out my […]
