Mixbook Blog — Mixbook Inspiration
This year we’re taking back 2020 and remembering all the good times we had together.

Besides, it looks very pretty in my terrace :)
How To Plant Succulents in Eggshells
I’ll be the first to admit that keeping plants alive is not my strong suit. After years of denial—and time, money, and effort wasted—I now stick to a strict succulent-only rule when bringing plants home.
