We built our first ever flower bed, you guys! It was slightly back-breaking but easy and extremely fun!

We planted Hibiscus and Mandevilla that Costa Farms sent us from their tropical collection. My first ever online plant purchase was from them. Last year I bought Fiddle leaf fig and a palm tree from their Amazon store. Both plants are healthy and growing so well.

When they reached out to me for a possible collaboration, I immediately said yes. We intended to build a flower bed and a raised bed for vegetables this summer anyway so the partnership was a natural fit.

If you are curvy and struggle to find a good slip dress, this is it! if you are between sizes, size down. I, however, got the regular size S and it fits me perfectly.
