Illuminate Your Workspace

Here are five unique lamps I found on Etsy to light up your dorm or apartment deskspace:

above: Metal Stage Lamp from Hindsvik
This unique lamp is reminiscent of old Hollywood set lights and theatrical lighting. Plus, the red color is bold and fun.

This lamp's classic lines, shiny finish, and touch of faux bois at the base would make it a fabulous addition to any space.
I scream! You scream! We all scream for ice-cream... lamps! This lamp is different, but with the right decor scheme would be quite an adorable accent piece.

This lamp is painted a lovely shade of green and it would light up your whole workspace!

I love this lamp's interesting shape and sunny color. And it doesn't take up too much space, either.




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.)
