February Favorites

air plant | Popcorn & ChocolateHello my lovelies! What a short and fast month February was, amirite? I swear this month like didn’t exist… Rose and I have a trip to Oregon and California planned for the beginning of March and all of a sudden that is next week. Like what?!? I thought it was still a month away… We are super excited to travel and explore new places. If anyone has any recommendations on what we should do/eat/see in Portland or San Francisco comment below! We would love to hear your suggestions. Another thing we would love to hear is what you loved through the very short and quick month of February. Here is what we just couldn’t get enough of.

Matcha latte | Popcorn & ChocolateFood:
Matcha tea! When I first tried matcha I was like no this is too thick I definitely don’t like this. Then I started to slowly crave it and finally now I cannot get enough of this deliciously creamy and wonderful tea. We have this set from David’s Tea and I’ve been loving the vanilla flavored matcha. I like to make mine with coconut milk and dip oreo’s into it. Rose likes the plain better and so far we’ve liked this grade best since it’s creamy and not too earthy.

Oreo’s: Speaking of Oreo’s… These. These. are. just. too. good. They feel slightly more natural and healthier than regs Oreo’s so I don’t feel too guilty eating them every single night for the past month. Plus, added bonus, you can have three per serving.

The_four_PLL'sTV/Movies:
Pretty Little Liars: We are a bit late to the game, but we started watching PLL from the beginning last year and are almost almost caught up to the new season. It’s been intense but we are thoroughly addicted now (Rose thought she saw Alison on the street this weekend) and won’t know what to do once we are caught up.

Room: We just watched this over the weekend and loved it. It was really intense to watch but definitely well done. I mean, Brie Larson did win an Oscar for it… so…

tillandsia | Popcorn & ChocolateRandom bits:
Perfume: Okay this comes with a bit of an (embarrassing) backstory… I was watching an interview with Shay Mitchell where she said her favorite scent is this Persian Gardens rollerball that they sell at Whole Foods. Well being the psycho Shay fan that I am, I wanted to smell like her, but once we got to Whole Foods they were sold out of that scent. We smelled all the others and I really liked this vanilla one at the time so I bought it. Every Whole Foods we went to thereafter we scouted out the perfumes until we finally found the one. Let me tell you it was well worth it because it smells amazing and now I can be just like Shay. #noshayme

hanging air plant | Popcorn & ChocolateAir plants: For Christmas, I gave Haley this awesome hanging air plant from a craft fair in Boston. I thought it was just the cutest thing and the girl who made it was super nice and made lots of cool stuff (you should check her out!). And then my mom got me a bunch of cute little air plants too! They’re so silly looking and everyone told me they were so easy to take care of… and then I killed one of mine and it was very sad and only got worse once I killed Haley’s… So you’re probably wondering why are air plants on my favorites when I can’t keep one alive? Because have you seen them?? I want to buy a bunch more and not kill them because they’re so fun to put everywhere! If anyone has the magic touch and can tell me how to take care of them properly please comment! Am I supposed to water them by spritzing them every day or am I supposed to bathe them once a week? Twice a week? For an hour? For 8 hours?

IMG_9787West Elm Vase: Rose got me this guy  for my birthday and I absolutely love to fill him up with fresh flowers. I’m also loving the whole Oh Joy for Target line -especially this painting.

Comment below what you have been loving this past month! Did you do anything fun for leap day? I might have eaten a few extra Oreo’s because, hey, it’s an extra day.

  1. This past month I’ve been absolutely obsessed with homemade plantain chips! I even found a restaurant that substitutes sandwich bread with a giant plantain!

    Love love love the idea of hanging plants!

  2. I have an air plant too, from west elm and I think I am killing it as well 🙁 They are so pretty and I thought I was taking good care of him….but I have a black thumb when it comes to plants

    1. I always get sucked into West Elm’s succulents and air plants but I don’t want to kill anymore either! I thought they were supposed to be easy to take care of… Maybe we should both invest in some fake ones?

  3. I am going to send you both a web page to read up on care of air plants hope it will help take care both of you love
