Do you , would love to put some in your house and every time you see the typical beautiful house on , you die of envy?

If you answered yes to any of these, but you don't know how to do it because you're a mess, you're not alone. It's normal to feel a little uncomfortable if, for whatever reason, you know for a fact that you won't have much time to take care of them (or that you'll just forget).

Aloe vera
