Let’s Go Pot Shopping

Let’s Go Pot Shopping on thedailymonarch.com. #living #pot #planter @itsjenniferrose

….and not the fun kind, although finding planter pots can be very enjoyable as well. Ha!  And this is probably the only kind of shopping I should be doing, as I have put myself on a tight budget to pay off student loan debt. (more on that in a future post!)  I digress.  Back to plants.  So, our apartment has really come together and it looks exactly the way I want.  We are doing are best to keep it minimal and to not have so much stuff.  I will share about our living room decor in a separate blog post.  But right now we are at the point of adding more plants to our home.  We bought a big, beautiful, house plant from the nursery on Fairfax and Willoughby, if you are in the LA area. They have affordable prices and really gorgeous, healthy plants.

Now that we’ve bought our big one, I need to take better care of my little babies, and get a few new planters.  Here are some inexpensive ones that I am currently digging, for my succulent and my Elephant Foot: read more

Pinterest To Plate: No Bake Energy Bites on TheDailyMonarch.com

Gosh. It feels amazing to actually sit down and write.  I apologize for my absence, I’ve missed you all so much!  Work has been insane on top of preparing for a third move.  The first move involved roaches, which lead to a second move in under 24 hours.  And we have finally found our perfect place.  On top of that craziness, there’s been 30th birthdays and other events.  So you can imagine, the last thing I wanted to do was pick up my laptop.  But I’m finally back and super excited for what’s to come in all areas of my life right now, and even more excited to decorate our new fancy place and document it all right here. read more

In my previous living posts, I talked about being in the throws of re-decorating my place and was super inspired.  And of course, I planned on shooting a tour and featuring it on the blog.  However, since I am now moving at the end of the month, and will be decorating again, I decided to hold off and chronicle the process in a new space.  Of course, I am re-inspired by decor again, and even more excited.   I’m still not quite sure of what I want each room to look like, but here are a few stylish hotel spaces that get my creative juices going. read more
