Happy November 1st + Winner!!

(Flight Attendant: Jessica) :)

Hello lovelies!

I hope you all had a fabulous Halloween! Here are the results from the blog's nifty little poll about costumes. 86 of you voted and a whopping 40% went with some cute and fun yet easy and inexpensive to put together. I hope the 8 "Don't Know" individuals figured out their costumes in time for festivities. :)

My Halloween weekend was a blast. On Friday I dressed up as a "French Maid" and Saturday night I was a "Retro Flight Attendant." I shared the fun with my bf, his roomie, a new girlyfriend, and a whole bunch of dressed up college students. While wearing a costume is definitely the highlight of my Halloween, my second favorite part is seeing everybody else's costumes. (And dancing to Thriler, of course!)

The Burger King. The Hamburger Helper Hand. Elvis. Katy Perry. Burt & Ernie. Beaker. The White Power Ranger. And a whole slew of Lady Gagas, Robin Hoods, Nerds, and Snookis.

Since last night was a Sunday/school night, the festivities died down. I spent the "real" Halloween next to my bf eating chips+salsa and watching the scary/thriller movie "Open House." It's a weird movie, to say the least.

But what I really want to know about is your Halloween! What was the highlight of your spooktacular weekend? And what was the worst/grossest/wierdest thing to occur?

Aaaand for what you've been waiting for! The winner of the Fall Decor Giveaway---a $20 gift certificate good at any of 200+ CSN online stores! (I assigned each comment a number and used the Random Number Generator to pick a lucky winner.)


She said, " I'm a follower and I would put the gift card towards a throw pillow to brighten up my dorm room...Thanks for the chance to win!"

Congrats, Tina! I'll be in touch with your ordering instructions.

Is that the movie with Stephen Moyer aka Bill from True Blood?

Thanks for having such a great giveaway! I've been dreading the lack of color that arrives with winter and I'm so thrilled to have a way to brighten up my dorm room now (and to procrastinate... shopping always seems like a much better option than writing papers).


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.
