Giving Back When I Shop For My Balcony Decor

I have been in re-decorate balcony decor mode the past few weeks. I have been surfing Pinterest like a crazy person for some inspiration for this space.

I live in a little 2 bedroom apartment in Los Angeles with this cute little tiny area outside my front door.  I am determined to make this look charming and cute because right now it just looks really sad.

A little over a year ago, I decided to try an herb garden in this space, but sadly, I have a row of large trees that block a majority of direct sunlight during the day, so my plants died out quickly. I was so sad!

The good news is that this is giving me an opportunity to try again.

I plan on trying something a little less green thumb and more lounge-like. I may even throw some fake plants in there so it doesn’t look I just look I like to kill the real ones so often. Embarrassing. I want to look like a successful decorator.

My goal. To make this space look swanky and to inspire others to try the same.

When I decided to revamp my approach, I decided to do the same with my shopping this time.

If you haven’t heard of Giving Assistant, it is a website where you can shop at your favorite stores online and earn cash back.

The cool thing is that this site will allow you to send your cash back to a charity of your choosing. You can give 100% or 50% of your cash back. You decide.

The other cool thing about this website is what they do…

Amazing right? I love that they make me feel really good about the purchases I make. I can contribute to people in need doing what I will need to do anyways.

I made the decision to earn 4% cash back shopping at Lowe’s for a new plant stand and some string lights for my outdoor oasis. I decided the charity I wanted to support is the camp I volunteer at, Rad Camp Inc.

I can not wait for these items to arrive so I can get to work on my new sophisticated little lanai balcony. My southern friends know what I am talking about right?

Here is some of my inspiration and a mood board I have created for this project!
