Life Schedule Under Construction


Unlimited internet access, cupcakes, and coffee?  I couldn't argue with that! 

I'm dropping in to apologize for the unusual lapse in posting.  My schedule is currently under construction.  My prime creative/blogging
times have been replaced with sleepy time.  I'm not taking classes this semester due to some personal/financial reasons, but that doesn't make me any less busy!  Juggling a new job and some new developments for Lovely Undergrad... my schedule is under construction.  I'm still (yes, still!) get settled in at my new apartment---unpacking (cringe), organizing, decorating.  I've got some exciting news coming your way relating to Lovely Undergrad.  Plus, I've been attempting to maintain what's become a lame excuse for a social life.  (You know you're growing up when you'd rather curl up with a spot of tea and the latest episode of Downton Abbey than leave the apartment to do anything.)  

But I'm shifting things around and learning to set time aside especially for blogging.  (Even if that entails getting up an extra hour earlier in the morning---gasp!)  Rest assured that some lovely things are heading your way.  What lovely stuff?  Well... New television and movie decor boards requested by readers like you!  Romantic ramblings-on about Midnight in Paris and my newest Downton Abbey obsession!  Mucho inspiring posts!  And a very special surprise coming soonly!

So, my pretties, please stay tuned!  :)

And in the meantime, leave a comment telling me a little about yourself/your blog!  xoxo

Oh! And please enter this giveaway to win $50! All you gotta do is show me what you'd wear to your dream internship interview. ;)  So far we only have one entry.  And while I'm sure she'd love to win that $50 by default, I'd like to see what all you ladies would wear to a big interview!!

I absolutely love your blog! I read it everyday in hopes that you have just posted (and check frequently throughout the day to see if you did again). It inspires me to be creative in every aspect of life - home decor, style, writing, etc. It's brilliant and please continue the good work!
Here is my own blog:

I too, have a life under construction. I'm currently trying to prewrite as many blog posts as I can crank out so as to avoid another one of my several-month lapses.

If you'd like to have a look, it's http://glamscribbles.blogspot.com/

Best of luck, and congratulations on your new job!

I don't want to win by default, I want to win by awesomeness! I'll take default as a second, if I must. Come on, y'all, give me a little competition! ;)

Anyway, congratulations on the job, and on the exciting news we must wait to hear about... I like to stay in with tea and TV/movies these days too, one of the best things about getting older is that your friends won't give you grief about it (because they'll probably be doing the same things.

I blog a little about design, occasionally about food, and a lot about my Etsy shop here: thebigcitybumpkin.blogspot.com
Thank you, Isabelle! Trust me--if I had more time I'd post several times throughout the day!! ;)

I shall definitely check out your blog!
Glad to know I'm not the only one in a construction zone! Haha.

Prewriting is a must. I hate falling behind! It's always a comfort when I know I have five or six posts ready to go. I start to freak when I get down to one or *cringe* none. :S

Thank you for the congrats!

I love the name of your blog! I'm heading off to check it out. :)
Maybe your fashionable getup is scaring away future entries?! Haha.

Thanks for the congrats!

And ditto on your point. I love that my friends are becoming just as much of a hermit as I am. ;)

I'll be checking out your blog. :)

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.
