I worked a thirteen hour work day outside overnight this week, skimmed the news and lamented, worked on my romper to wear to a Christina Aguilera concert tomorrow on the West Coast…I’m tired.

It seems like the entire population has decided that September 1st was the start of fall this year. I get it, we all want something to look forward to and pumpkin spice lattes, candles and holidays that involve a lot of eating in cozy clothes are just what the doctor ordered.

A lot of people suffer from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) over the colder months and even if you’re not diagnosed with SAD you may feel a little blue after all of the fun celebrating is over.

Plants. Sweet, sweet, verdant green plants. We all know by now that plants are great because they can help purify the air of your home.
