Lovely Undergrad is a'Tumblin'

Yep, you read that right!  Lovely Undergrad is a'Tumblin'.  (And I don't mean in a bad way!)  Once upon a time, LU operated a lovely tumblog for your visual pleasure.  Then, it sadly fell to the wayside.  But it's back!  Today, the Lovely Undergrad tumblog has been re-freshed and re-launched.  What will you find there?  Well, links to daily blog posts from here obvi.  But you'll also get a heavy dose of stuff that might not make it to the blog or shorties that don't quite stack up to compose a real blog post.  

Plus, since many of you are dying to see how lovely quirky my life really is... the tumblog will be spattered with plenty of pics of, well... me!  (Hence, Rudolf the Red-nose Reindeer and creamy coffee in a white mug being one of my favorite simple pleasures.)   Plus, I'll share stuff I'm really smitten with... like the song Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men.  (Though you won't be lucky enough to hear me sing it, I'm sorry to say!)

So follow LU on Tumblr, yo!  Catch links to daily content and get exclusive access to special, never-before-seen nonsense. Can't wait to see your lovely faces there, dearies! xoxo



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.
