New Series: The Right Fit

(above image from An Optional Holiday)

Back during my senior year of high school, this (above) is what my bedroom floor looked like. I got college mail from everywhere. It was truly amazing and... well, overwhelming. I do, however, remember how fun it was to flip through the various college lookbooks and admire the beautiful campuses.

While my blog is mostly directed to current college students, I like to feature content for future and former students as well. It is that time of year for high school seniors across the nation to be making crucial decisions and preparations for what school they're going to attend in the fall. So in the upcoming months of March, April, and May I'll be doing a series called The Right Fit. Basically I'll be covering the basic differences between certain types of schools and the considerations to take into account before committing yourself.

This series will be beneficial not only to high school seniors, but to current college students looking to transfer and students graduating from community colleges with the intent of pursuing four-year degrees.

This'll be a 12-installment series. I look forward to getting started!

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.
