Day 357: PWC Flowers

My building has the prettiest flower arrangements every week. They never disappoint. I just found out that my favorite Melbourne florist does the building flower arrangements! I have good taste, right?? No more “Flowers of the Week” in Melbourne since I’m leaving soon, so these will have to do.

Day 344: RIP Orchid

I was told an orchid is an easy plant to take care of … lies!! The leaves are still green, the weird stem things seem to still be alive but the flower part is a goner. I know they die off, but I’m convinced this plant isn’t coming back. I’ll keep trying until I leave…

Day 323: Hometown Boost

I stopped by the candy shop a few weeks ago and I picked up a few of these lollipops because (1) I love them and (2) they remind me of home.  I remember going to the corner store in the Bronx with my sister and getting these for 5 cents! I have a specific way…

Day 231: Peonies, I loves!

I love Peonies!! When we picked them up from the florist, they were tight flower balls.  Then, in the same night they started to bloom! How cool! I love to see flowers “come alive” right before my eyes. The next morning (and the following days) they bloomed into these huge flowers.  I highly recommend these…

Day 213: Hello Cairns!

We stayed up all night catching up The Walking Dead, blogging, and having a few drinks. We had to be out of the apartment by 3:30AM for a 6AM flight to Cairns, Australia! We only care about two things on this trip:  snorkeling The Great Barrier Reef and ….    …. celebrating 6 YEARS OF…
