Eye Candy: Chris Evans

Back in the day, I featured Mister Eye Candies of the month.  And while that won't be back as a monthly feature (I'm really picky with my eye candy!)... I do think we all deserve something nice to look at during these dark hours of Finals Week.  So here we have him!  Chris Evans, the man, the legend, the eye candy.  I fell in love with him in "Cellular."  And then I toppled head over heels again when I saw him in "What's Your Number" starring alongside Anna Faris. He's also in Captain America: The First Avenger, Fantastic Four, Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and his steamy ads for Gucci. 

So keep scrolling down for pictures.  But just a warning.  If you don't want to anybody to glance at your screen and see you checking out pics of Chris Evans' almost unclothed physique in class or at the library when you should be "studying"... you may want to save these goodies for later.

Okay... now get back to studying something other than this stud!




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.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
