My Dwelling

Photobucket

Hello Lovely Undergrads,

I just wanted to inform you of the new post category you'll be seeing here throughout the summer. At the top of the left-hand menu you will see a fancy little label that reads "My Dwelling."

I will be attending ISU this fall and living in my very first apartment. It's a two-story, two-bedroom, on-campus townhouse that dates back to the sixties. I'm sure the place will be a little dated, but I'm excited and up for the challenge.

"My Dwelling" posts will relate to all the inspiration and preparation that goes into decorating my apartment. I've already been brainstorming, of course. (And I've even already bought some things!) Anything tagged "My Dwelling" will include purchases I've made, inspiring photos I've come across, or ideas I have for my apartment. You can also just click on the "My Dwelling" button to see it all.

Feel free to offer advice, ask questions, or point me in the direction of additional inspiration. I do love feedback. :)

Oh, and in the fall I'll post {Before & After} photos of my new place!

Amore.

Thanks, ladies! I can't wait 'til the end of summer so that I can move in and get decorating!

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.

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.

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.)
