    6 Low Maintenance House Plants

    FEATURED ON THIS POST:

    Hi friends,

    Hope you are having a great week! Today I am sharing my six low maintenance house plants I have in my home and how I take care of them. I’ve had tons of questions about my plants, and to be fair it’s been a lot of trial and error. My first year as a plant mom I did not have that green of a thumb, but as I’ve progressed I’ve gotten better and keeping my plants alive. I’ve also found that in most cases with house plants less is more. Sometimes we can kill a plant by overwatering, giving it too much sun, or food. Luckily I’ve found some amazing house plants that only require weekly maintenance so you don’t have to worry about watering it everyday. Check them out below!

    Hi friends,

    Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend. This past week we had the opportunity to stay at the Post Oak Hotel in Houston for a family staycation in lieu of receiving their Forbes 5 star rating. Post Oak Hotel is the only 5 star, 5 diamond rated hotel in Houston, and if you’ve ever stayed there then you know why. It’s the most luxurious hotel, with top of the line technology in every room, impeccable service, great restaurants, and did I mention they have their own Rolls-Royce car service? Let’s just say being chauffeured around Houston in a Rolls-Royce was something we got to check off our bucket list during our stay. Check out more of our family staycation at the Post Oak Hotel in their amazing Wellness suite below!
