A Happy 8Tracks Playlist for Your Day From Yours Truly (Oh! And did you see New Girl last night?! OMG!!)




One of my favorite websites is 8Tracks.com.  You can listen to user-created playlists based on genre and mood.  Crushing on that cute guy in Chem?  Folk + Love + Happy.  Need some good study music?  Study + Classical.  Cozied up in your bed with a good book while the snow gently falls outside your window?  Winter + Slow + Indie.


I'm addicted.  I use it all day long from getting around in the morning to focusing at work and from writing or reading to falling asleep at night.  One of my favorite things about it is that you only see the description of the playlist... not the actual songs on it until that specific song plays.  The surprise factor is nice.  I've discovered a lot of new music and artists via 8Tracks.  Also, it's totally ad-free.  I highly recommend it!  Trust me, you'll love it.  ;)

I've been listening to others' playlists, but tonight I finally got around to creating my own.  It's a compilation of sweet, happy, romantic indie folk and indie pop love songs.  (I know, I know...)  I suppose you can blame the perky, upbeat, lovey-dovey inspiration on last night's episode of New Girl.  I've been waiting for Nick and Jess to kiss for sooooo long!  I had to cover my mouth to keep from screaming out with glee.  And I squealed on and off for a good hour.  (And man, did Nick lay it on Jess!  Oh my dayum!)

So anyway.  Give my playlist a listen.  Give 8Tracks a listen.  And tell me what you think.  (If you decide to sign up and create playlists of your own, follow me and let me know so that I can follow you back.)

Have a lovely day!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for introducing us all to 8tracks.com! I have been jamming to winter+indie playlists all night!
I always love when you talk about New Girl or Downton Abbey. I am basically counting the seconds until next week's episode of New Girl. LOVE Nick and Jess! Can't believe it finally happened!

Ahhh! I shouldn't have finished the post after seeing the title. I guess I can just happily anticipate that Jess+Nick kiss when I get time to watch it now =] Loving 8tracks.com so far: I kind of like being limited to 8 songs for a playlist.

one? Thanks a lot!

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.
