Love on-trend fashion, accessories, and home goods curated and customized to your personal taste? And at a discount?! Me, too. 

Ladies, Filene's Basement is making a return as an e-commerce website launching this Fall 2015. 

You might have heard of the the annual "Running of the Brides" event. Or if you live in the Northeast, Chicago, or Mid-Atlantic states, you might have been lucky enough to score fabulous discounts at one the 20+ brick-and-mortar Filene's stores before the company closed in 2011.

Filene's got its start in its father's basement – literally! Edward Filene opened in the basement of his father's store at Downtown Crossing, Boston in 1909. And a fun fact: The Filene's Basement automatic markdown system discounted unsold items by 25% each week. After a month, anything unsold went to charity.

Because I never had the chance to visit one of those brick-and-mortar stores, I'm delighted that I'll be able to shop Filene's Basement from home – especially for discounted home goods!

To stay in the loop about the launch and online store opening, head over to the Filene's Basement website and sign up for the newsletter.

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.)
