Beautiful Blogger | My first award... :D

The fabulous Aury of An Ordinary Girl's World: Fashion, Love, Life (whose blog I love to read and comments I love to see) tagged me with a blog award. This completely made my day and I'm super excited because I've never received a blog award before. Thank you sooooo much, Aury!

Now I must divulge 7 things about myself. Let's see...

1. I hate to cook, but love to bake. I'm not a very good cook, but it wouldn't be unusual to find me in the kitchen at midnight baking muffins or cookies just for the heck of it.

2. I have this weird habit of looking at any house (be it big, small, rundown, or pristine) and imagining the floorplan. It's compulsive. I look at a house and automatically envision how the rooms, stairs, etc. are all laid out.

3. Waaay back in high school I was a HUGE drama-nerd. I was president of my school's International Thespian Society, knew the lyrics of every showtune, and could focus/aim/set-up the stagelights. And I miss those theatre days dreadfully.

4. I have really crazy dreams! I've even dreamt in cartoon. It's not uncommon for me to sleep-talk, sleep-walk, or... shall we say, hallucinate... Haha. But my family gets a huge laugh out of all my slumbering episodes.

5. I am utterly content in solitude. I have a big family and enjoy being around them. I have fun friends and a wondeful bf... and I love to spend time with them, too. But while I enjoy company, I'm not one of those people who need it. In fact, I need more alone time than social time. Alone time allows me to "recharge my battery," read, write, and be alone with my thoughts. I get grumpy and agitated if I haven't had a little time to myself in a few days.

6. When I graduate from college in two years, I'll have attended four colleges and transferred four times. :S Heh.

7. When I was little and played Barbies, I enjoyed setting up their houses more than I actually enjoyed playing. I loved the interior design aspect---arranging furniture, accessorizing, taping patterned scrapbook paper up to imitate wallpaper, etc. Sometimes, I would spend an hour setting all of the Barbies' rooms up only to play for fifteen minutes, tear it all down, and spend another hour setting it up in a new way. :D Those were the days...

Now, I get to tag some other bloggers and give them the award. (This is so fun!)

I tag Elaine from Glow in the Dark Soul. I love her unique sense of style and I envy her crafty diy-abilities.

I tag Moselle from Elle Moselle. She's fashion-forward, delightfully-insightful, and if we went to the same college, I'm just sure we'd be amazing friends! Plus, she's fab at graphic design. ;)

& I tag Luinae from More Magic Always. She's so well-written, creative, and stylish. I was very impressed when I found out how young she is. And I always look forward to comments from her.

Congrats, ladies!

Everyone, have an awesome weekend!

Congrats on the award! And I agree about being content in solitude ... as long as it's not for stretched periods of time because then I feel anti-social haha. And what kind of things do you like to bake? :)

Congrats on the award!

I love baking--when the world is on a tilt a little baking sets it right. I too enjoy being alone...but I fear becoming one of those anti-social people who keep to themselves so I forced myself to mingle.

Luinae--You're welcome, of course!

Nikolett--Thanks! I like to bake muffins the most. Cookies and cake-things are always gooood, too. :)

Melissa--Thanks! I love what you said about baking setting the world right and may quote you on that. ;)

I didn't know you like theatre! I'm really into costume design and im taking an acting class right now. Actually, im looking for a good monologue with a character that is in her late teens, early 20s from a play written in 20th or 21st century. Do you know any?


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.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

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.
