That’s the dream isn’t it? Being paid to creatively write your own blog posts? Well that dream could very well become your reality!
You created a blog (yay, congrats!) & now want to generate some extra money from it. Brands have realized how influential bloggers can be to sell their product or services & are now paying top dollar to get you to be a part of their team. How cool is that?

I love cooking with free herbs. Nothing beats the smell of fresh rosemary being baked or fresh basil being cut into salads. I find it hard to buy an appropriate amount of fresh herbs from the grocery store or market since you need to purchase a large bundle even when you may only need a few sprigs.
Enter tiny herb gardens! I love the variety home herb gardens can give you in the spice department and the ease in which you can cut just the right amount needed. I’ve found the cutest gardens to buy or to get some serious herb-spiration!
