Elaine: Glow in the Dark Soul

I stumbled upon Elaine's blog Glow in the Dark Soul and was so very happy to find pictures of her dorm there. The bright colors, pretty patterns, and abundance of creativity really makes for a happy, lovely space. (All photos in this post belong to Elaine.)

Above: What an inspiring desk space! I love the candy-coated
colors, the cupcakes, and the letter E with a bow on it.
Above: Elaine uses a vintage 80s silverware organizer
to hold jewelry. I love the color and the fact that it is thrifted.
Above: Two words... vintage luggage. And I'm drooling.
Above: I'm crazy over Elaine's diy headboard.
Above: Her "partner in crime" sewing machine and two kissing dinos.
Above: A pillow she made herself. (Note to self: learn to sew!)
Above: A fabulous sunglasses collection.
Above: There are two things I love here. 1) That white cakestand. I've been scouring antique stores for the past year searching for a lovely milkglass cakestand like this one. 2) I love that deer because I have the exact same one! I purchased my little darling fawn at an antique store for only a buck!
Above: Some wintry decoration, piantbrushes, a camera, and a photo booth strip.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
