An Illustrated Guide To The Best Indoor Plants For The Home

I've been trying to feel my room up with lots more houseplants recently. Not only because plants are pretty and look nice, but because they are easy to look after and most importantly purify the air of certain toxins. I've always suffered with a stuffy nose and allergens so I wanted to see and research if keeping plants in my room would help with this! Here are 6 of the best plants rated out of five stars on how good they are when it comes to air quality, toxins and how easy they are to look after.

Dracaena Plant  3.5/5*

There are many different varieties of the Dracaena plant that also filter indoor air. They are non toxic for children but unfortunately it's not the friendliest plants when it comes to your furry companions. That is why I've rated it 3.5/5 stars. It clears toxins such as Benzene, Formaldehyde, Xylene and trichlorethylene which can be very harmful to the body and be caused by chemicals, etc.


When I think about what's in my pencil case or what I'm painting with lately I've been using a lot of new art supplies. So today I though I would update you on Part 2 of some of my favourite art tools. You can read Part 1 here. When it comes to art tools in general I literally swoon over pens and new paints that come out. I also found a new love of Finetec pearl paints which are the most beautiful paints I have ever seen in my life! I've got used to painting with brush pens instead of brushes and love using ink. 

2017 IN REVIEW & HELLO TO 2018

As I currently sit here it's two in the morning, I'm eating profiteroles left over from Christmas and I have a cold. So I've headed into 2018 although ill, I would say pretty happy. It shows me just how much I've changed this year in the fact I didn't feel depressed on new years which is a regular occurrence normally every year for me. This time I was content which is a nice feeling. 2017 has been partly the best and worst year of my life. I had a hell of a lot of new experiences! Let people into my life I never should have let in but also it was one of my happiest years in the sense that I began to feel my whole mindset on life change for the better. For now I would like to share with you my favourites from 2017.
