Inner Soundtrack

(image via: here.)

Do you have an inner soundtrack? I don't mean the music being blown in your ears by your iPod. I'm talking about the music you hear when there's no music playing at all, the songs that are stuck in your head as you walk to class or eat in the dining hall.

My inner soundtrack usually consisted of stuff from the Marie Antoinette soundtrack, showtunes from Wicked and Moulin Rouge, mellow acoustic songs, and the frequent Lady Gaga. But something happened over the weekend. My inner soundtrack has suddenly become, well... hip hop.

I'm not sure when it happened. Or how. Or where. But suddenly my brain is all:

But I can't say that I dislike it. ;)




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 .

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.
