Easy Margherita Pizza + Yogurt Dessert


I have a confession to make: I'm addicted to California Pizza Kitchen frozen margherita pizzas.  Like, I can eat the whole thing myself.  And I do.  But with my mission to eat healthier, I've put a stop to that pizza binge.  I knew I'd have California Pizza withdrawals, so I racked my brain for a tasty alternative.  What is a margherita pizza, anyway?  It's basically dough and mozzarella and tomato and basil. 



What you need for my easy margherita pizza:
Pita Bread (I like Joseph's heart-friendly
oat bran and whole wheat pita bread).
Roma tomato.   Fresh mozzarella.
Light olive oil.  Basil (fresh or a shaker).

Spread a bit of olive oil on the pita bread and sprinkle with basil.  Slice off some mozzarella cheese and slice up that roma tomato.  Arrange on the pita bread.  Sprinkle with more basil.  Pop in your toaster oven at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until it's all warm and melty.  (It's sooo delish!  And remarkably similar to my beloved California Pizza Kitchen pizzas!)



For dessert, pop a few blackberries into Greek yogurt and sprinkle with granola.


Om nom nom. Get in my belly!

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.
