Hello, Spring Semester 2011!

(image via: here.)

Tomorrow (well, technically today---since the clock just struck midnight) begins my Spring 2011 semester!  First of all, I want to apologize for a lack of posting this weekend.  I had to take a little break.  You see, I've had a bit more than usual going on: a very exciting opportunity to prepare for (which I'll give the deets on soonly, I promise!) and attempts to get my apartment re-organized before classes get too hectic.  I succeeded in the first. And while my laundry has been sorted and desk cleaned out---there's still much organization to be desired in my bedroom. 

I just wanted to let you know that: No, I have not dropped off of the face of the earth.  And I have plenty of super-duper start-of-the-new-semester posts lined up for you this week!  So check in everyday. ;)

Here's to new profs, new friends, new ideas and new beginnings!

Much love for my lovely undergrads!!

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.
