To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, most companies are shifting to remote work. As a result, plenty of people are reconfiguing their spaces and scrounging for the tools to effectively work from their homes.
We reached out to our coworkers for some work-from-home inspiration. Some of us are having to make do and get creative with the space we have at home. Others are seasoned remote employees who have mastered an aesthetic.
Abby Dauchess — Home Jungle, Charlotte, NC
“My setup is what used to be my painting/art area now turned into my WFH sanctuary. Once I knew we were going to be working from home for a while, I wanted to prioritize a dedicated space I could focus in. It’s very nice sitting by a window because I have a great view throughout the day while being stuck inside during social distancing. I especially love having a large portion of my indoor plant collection near my workspace to look at and care for.”
Ali Dunlap — Parent’s Basement, Raleigh, NC
“My father joked about him setting up a workspace for me and when I got home this is what he showed me. Snapped a pic, then got myself back upstairs to set up at a desk.”
Brandi Myers — A Funky Space, Charlotte, NC
“This space is my home office that I use for freelance design work so I needed a room that was energizing and also comfortable to spend time in. My love of color and eclectic sense of style challenges me to balance contemporary pieces with antiques. This is by far the funkiest space in my house.”
Brian Miranda — Quarantined Paradise, Puerto Rico
“During this time of the year we enjoy not-too-hot, mid-70s weather from time to time, which makes it perfect for the hammock! Since I’m working from a back-breaking dining room chair, I thought it would be cool to use the hammock for a while so I came up with this crazy setup.
Carlos Jimenez — Apartment by a Boat Marina, Puerto Rico
“My dad’s favorite hobby is fishing, so the apartment is PACKED with fishing gear. Even though we’re stuck inside most of the day, it’s nice to have a nice view to work with and for running after work.”
Claye Stokes — The Game Room, Waxhaw, NC
“Showing off the new content performance dashboards to my best co-worker in my music & gaming room. The table is a pool table but I can put a topper on it which makes it my office/conference table. Coworker’s name is Rusty, he’s a two-year old Australian Shepherd.”
Clint Branch — Designer’s Desk, Charlotte, NC
“I think having a lot of plants around my desk helps fuel creativity and brings life to my work space.”
Ken Hocker — Visual Representation of His Mind, Charlotte, NC
“If I’m going to be stuck at my desk, I need to be surrounded by visual and auditory stimuli to keep the creative juices flowing. The walls of the office are constantly being added to in the hopes that one day every inch will be covered. Very similar to the interior of McSorley’s in NYC, minus the beer and history.”
Taylor Leamey — Home Art Studio (AKA Guest Bedroom), Charlotte, NC
“I angled my desks to take advantage of the natural light instead of facing it. I selfishly hung the things I am most proud of in front of my face, hoping they will sometimes inspire me. (Does it work? No idea. But I like looking at them.)”
Shannon Ullman — Walking Office, Philadelphia, PA
“I bought this treadmill about two months ago because I wanted a healthy alternative to sitting all day. I walk super slowly while working and aim for 10k steps a day!”

Last year I shared my 15 favorite perennials (plants that come back every year) and ever since I have wanted to also share my favorite annuals (plants that only live for one season). Annuals are a great way to add some color to your landscaping. There are so many different varieties. Here are 15 annual flowers that are easy to grow!
15 Annual Flowers That Are Easy To Grow
Zinnia flowers are one of my all time favorites! They are colorful, very easy to grow, and there are a ton of varieties. They do well in planters and window boxes as well. They do best when sowed directly in the ground versus transplanting seedlings. Make sure to plant them after all threat of frost is gone.
These flowers might look fragile, but they are hardy and usually reseed themselves each year. They can even grow in poor soil. I love their feathery leaves! They can get pretty tall and make great cut flowers.
Everyone knows about petunias! They are a great container plant and smell amazing. They are heat tolerant and like the sun, although they can tolerate some shade.
While you can grow varieties that are shorter, my favorite kind to grow are the ones that grow 6-8 feet tall. The flowers are the size of dinner plates and the seeds are edible too! There are a range of colors from white to yellow to orange and red. They are best planted as seed directly into the ground. They don’t transplant well.
Sweet Alyssum and great in planters and as a border to flowerbeds. It is a low growing plant with tiny little blossoms. In some regions this can be a perennial but in most places it is a really hardy annual.
This annual comes in white, red, purple, and pink. It is another one that does well in containers. It is heat tolerant, pest resistant, and blooms all summer.
These were always a favorite of mine as a kid. I loved pinching them to make them “talk”. They come in so many colors and heights. Snapdragons prefer full sun. They are a great addition to any flower bed.

Impatiens and Sunpatiens
Impatiens love shade so if you have a north facing flowerbed these will do great there. They need moist (not overly wet) soil. If you love the look of impatiens but want them in the sun, Sunpatients are for you!
This was the first flower I ever grew. When I was little my mom gave me a packet of seeds and a little corner of your flowerbed. I think the round leaves are just as interesting and pretty as the flowers themselves! Both the leaves and the flowers are edible. They actually do better in poor soil so don’t fertilize.
Lantanas flowers have a similar look to verbena. They have a long bloom time and come in a variety of colors. They attract hummingbirds and butterflies. They prefer warm weather so don’t plant until all threat of frost is gone.
I just ordered some Dahlias and am so excited to plant them this year. In the past I had the not planted them (even though I am obsessed with them) because I thought that they were hard to grow. But friends who grow them told me that is not true so I’m giving it a go! There are so many varieties, colors, and sizes.
Because Of where I live, I have never had success with planting these as bulbs. It’s too cold here. But I have bought them as small plants from a nursery and they have done well. If you live somewhere warmer, plant them in the fall for spring blooms! They are a great cut flower.
These next two annuals, while not necessarily a flower, are great additions to flowerbeds or planters. Coleus plants come in different varieties and colors. Their leaves are stunning! Some are suited for shade while others like sun, so no matter what, there’s one right for you!
Sweet Potato Vine
This a favorite for planters and window boxes due to the trailing. It over hangs in such a beautiful way and really fills out a planter. I have seen it in flowerbeds as well. They like the heat so plant in a sunny spot.
Who doesn’t love pansies? They do well in cold weather and struggle in the heat. Plant them in the fall and enjoy them into the spring as well!
Do you have any annual flowers that are easy to grow that you would have added to the list? I’d love to hear what you think!

We love our nurses and want their feet to feel as comfortable as possible while taking good care of their patients. We’ve asked our Facebook readers for input as well as doing our own research to find the best nursing shoes based on various foot issues. If you have a favorite shoe for nurses and medical professionals, by all means leave a comment and add to our list. Your recommendations are our best resource!
Nurse and Zappos customer Janet loves her Alegria Duettes as they help relieve her back pain:
I love Alegria shoes for their great arch support. I have a very bad back and these shoes help me with my back issues. I also had problems with Plantar Fasciitis but wearing Alegria has resolved that issue. I am a nurse and have worn Alegria shoes for years. I would not have be able to continue working as long as I did without these shoes. I purchased this pair to wear around the house when I am cooking to give the support I need. They aren’t as bulky as some of the other styles.
The Alegria Duette features double elastic gore for easy on and off, removable footbed, wide toe box and good arch support. The Duette is slip-resistant and comes in over 10 colors and patterns. Find it in euro sizes 35-43 for $89.95 from Zappos, Amazon, and Nordstrom. If you need a wide width, check out the Alegria Paityn!
Have you rolled an ankle in Dansko Professionals? If so, try the Klogs Mission with similar support, wide toe box, but with a lower heel for stability. The footbed is latex-free and provides excellent arch support. Available in sizes 6-14, medium and wide widths for $129.95 from Zappos, Amazon, and The Walking Company.
If you can wear fitness shoes at your medical place of employment, Hoka’s the way to go. Look at all that dense cushioning! And not only that, a thick removable insole offers enhanced arch support. We recommend the Hoka Clifton 6 for feet that suffer from forefoot or heel pain as the rocker sole takes pressure off both through the stride.
OR nurse and happy Zappos customer Judester shares this about her Hoka Cliftons:
My orthopedic surgeon recommended I try Hoka shoes after my foot surgery. I’m an operating room nurse and am on my feet a lot (walking and standing) I’ve worn Merrill jungle mocs for years but decided to give the Hoka shoes a try. I love them! My feet are happy. My legs are happy and it feels like they give me a spring in my step. This is my second pair and when these give out from all my wear and tear on them I will definitely buy another pair.
On Cloud X
Alegria DebraOn to a crowd favorite, the Alegria Debra Professional. Alegria started out as an orthopedic brand and swiftly gained popularity among education, healthcare and service industry professionals. Ask anyone what they love about the brand and they’ll list three features: the arch support (provided by the thick, removable cork-latex footbed), the roomy and wide toe box, and the rocker sole. The Debra Professional’s stain-resistant upper wipes up easily and slip-resistant outsoles keep you safe. Available in euro sizes 34-43, medium and wide widths from Zappos, Alegria Shoe Shop, and Amazon (check out the fun sugar skulls print).
Update: After publishing this article, I learned of the upgraded Dansko Pro XP, aptly named Pro XP 2.0 (hat tip to Facebook fan). They’re even more lightweight than the original Pro XP with same cushioned, removable footbed and contoured arch support.
Nurses, which shoes help you get through a 12-hour shift without wanting to kick them off half way through? We value your input and appreciate the dedication to your career.

There has been a lot of new shoes listed on The Marketplace. Some very cool ones as well, such as these Enzo Bonafe’s in blue bison/calf.
I know that purchasing is at an all-time low in these times of certainty, but sharing is at an all-time high, so thought I would at least let all of you know what’s been updated in the recent weeks at The Shoe Snob Marketplace
All of the shoes shown here are listed as ‘New’ and they are sold by actual commercial vendors, one in Vancouver B.C. and the other in Sweden. Therefore, even if most of us are in some sort of lockdown, they can be purchased and held until everything passes. A lot of shoes shown on The Marketplace are unique (i.e. only a couple of sizes in each model), so grabbing them before they go is always advisable.
