Super Easy & Pretty Dry Erase Board

(above image via: here.)

I love the function of dry erase boards; they're such great places to write notes to myself. (And they're fun to write on!) But I'm not always crazy about the boring, shiny white board. Well, I came across this nifty diy project on How About Orange. All you need to do is pick out a pretty piece of patterned paper or fabric, frame it under glass in a pretty frame, and hang it up on your wall or set it on your desk. (This is soooo simple... why didn't I think of it before?!) It doubles as art and a dry erase board.

I'm definitely making one of these for my apartment in the fall.

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.)
