Unmentionables Worth Mentioning


This is a rather spontaneous post, but I was simply in the mood for intimates. What girl doesn't love pretty undergarments? I wholeheartedly believe that a woman can never have too many pairs of panties or too many lovely bras. I have more bras than I know what to do with! ( in every color except for white, oddly enough.)

If you have a lover, perhaps you want a little something sexy to show off on Valentine's Day. Or you single ladies might just feel like splurging on some beautiful lingerie. (Wearing pretty undergarments is a proven confidence boost, btw!)

But being a on a student budget doesn't mean you have to compromise when it comes to wearing lace, silk, and frilly little details beneath your attire. I personally have become smitten with the lingerie options available at Topshop. (All of those gorgeous panties and bralets featured up above are from Topshop and cost under $50.)

So go have a look and swoon.




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.
