We made it! It's Friday! Finals week is a thing of the past. And now it's time to party! What season is more festive than the holidays? Hitting a Christmas-themed fiesta? Channel your inner seductive Mrs. Claus with a little red dress, lacy scarlet tights, candy-cane-striped peep-toe heels, a red satin clutch, and St. Nick's favorite hat to top it off. Feeling more Rudolf than Vixen? Spread some goofy Christmas spirit at an Ugly Sweater party---there are literally tons of them going on right now. Raid family member's closets, Goodwill, and thrift stores for the tackiest sweater you can get your hands on. No luck? Make your own. Pair it with a frilly mini skirt, bold tights, a hair bow, and elfish booties to complete the look. If you prefer the bars/clubs to parties, look no further than classic silver and gold. It's easy to pull off and the chicest of holiday looks. (Plus, you could re-wear it NYE.) It's simple: black leggings paired with silver and gold metallics, sequins, sparkles, glitter, etc.
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 .
