Succulents are versatile and decorative plants that can easily fit into anyone’s lifestyle. What makes these little babies so great is the little maintenance they need to make such an environmental impact within the home. Specifically green leafed succulents, they need the least amount of maintenance.
Succulents also provide plenty of benefits for you and your home! They purify the air and allow fresh air to circulate if you have them located throughout the home. By purifying the air, it regulates the humidity in the home thus preventing colds and dry sore throats! Plants are great for focusing the mind and increasing memory retention!
The best thing about succulents however is how decorative they can be and they look good almost anywhere! The small sleek size makes them perfect for the work desk. Or build your own terrarium with air plants and stones.

So, your day has just begun. You’ve had your breakfast, makeup looks fresh and natural however, when you do the usual double take in the mirror before you step out for the day, you notice your outfit seems as if it’s missing something. What could it be?
In those minor moments of crisis I like to add an accessory that will help jazz up my theme for the day!
This Hobo International: Wisp Keychain is perfect if you’d like to add a little edge to an outfit. It is meant to clip onto a handbag however, I would also clip this little fringe piece right onto a front belt loop as a small statement piece!
What is great about these earrings, is that they are perfect for any occasion. If you just need to glam up a casual everyday outfit, or require a complimenting statement piece for a night on the town, these will help transform your outfit in the best way. Plus they’re handmade by Larissa Loden, how awesome is that?!
Brixton’s Fiddler Cap is definitely great for the days your hair does not want to cooperate, but it is also such a subtle piece it can bring an outfit together without clashing with other styles you may be wearing!
Which ever kind of accessories you enjoy wearing the most, they are definitely the key to completing an outfit and helping one out of thinking they have nothing to wear.
The manufacturers of Hobo strongly believe in quality over quantity, they only make what will come out well and nothing below that. They thrive on creating hand-picked and authentic leather goods that are made to stand the test of time. Over the past couple weeks Queen of Hearts and Modern Love has received some awesome new Hobo items and I will be going over a couple of my favorites!
An iconic Hobo style, the Sheila bag is designed to be worn well and well-loved. The rock n’ roll inspired guitar strap adds a 70’s vibe + effortless cool factor, and our vintage hide only gets better over time with wear and tear.
The Sheila traveler bag is an absolute must-have whether you’re someone who is constantly on the go, or you’re just going for a weekend getaway!
From shoulder bag to backpack, the Hobo Merrin convertible style backpack is flawlessly functional and made for travel, fun, and the everyday. This sleek design sets the trend for what is an ideal convertible bag.
The Marley handbag is a lovely Indigo blue bag from Hobo International, it’s the perfect accessory for falling out of summer & into autumn!
One thing for sure is that Hobo makes pristine leather bags that only look better over time. They have their craft down to a science and you can never go wrong with getting a Hobo Bag!
