Remember when owls were having their moment, then it was pineapples, then foxes, or whatever order that was? Now the hottest thing seems to be cactus or anything desert like succulents – in fashion and home decor, things shaped like it and artwork.

Who thinks of these trends? I have been eying these succulent candles from Anthro for a while, I think I can use the containers after the candle has burned, but I’m waiting for my current ones to be used up before I buy them. I own this cactus print and it’s in my office. I guess this California girl is getting used to the desert landscape and finding some appreciation after living here for almost a decade, oh my.

If you haven’t visited before, you really do need to come visit Phoenix/Scottsdale. The restaurants are delicious, the coffee is perfection and depending on when you come, the weather is perfection. Meanwhile, indulge in the cactus trend!
