Formspring Q & A's

What school in Missouri did you attend? I only ask because I just graduated from Mizzou and if it was there, I wish I'd met you! I love your blog and will definitely be checking it out as I continue to decorate my first apartment!
For my first semester of Freshman year of college I attended the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. It was a great school---beautiful campus, proximity to Kansas City, and a lot of fun people eager to make friends. But I was unsure of my major, plus I was ready to live five hours from home or excited about paying out-of-state tuition.

Does your boyfriend go to the same school as you?
Yes, he does. But it's a big school and there are lots (over 25,000) of students that go here. So it's a rare and funny surprise when I bump into him on campus. And with different work and school schedules we really have to plan to make time together. We live in the same neighborhood of apartments though, so it's a nice five minute walk to his place. :)

I love the nail polish you use on your website..what kind of nail polish would you recommend that last?
In my experience, the trick to lasting nail polish is a good protective clear coat. I buy all kinds of nail polish from the cheapies to OPI and finishing off with clear coat is definitely the key to long-lasting pretty nails.

Jessica, I would love to have a feature on your blog. Is this possible. I LOVE your blog and think it would be an awesome target for my site.

Thanks for posting this...I always love to read Q&As from other bloggers. I'm just starting out with a new blog but I'd LOVE to do a guest post sometime down the road.

I have a slight obsession with Q&A's so I am super excited about the decor one coming up!! I also can't wait to see pictures of your room :) I moved into my first apartment this week (I am a sophomore) and I am still in the midst of decorating (I want to create some things myself and I have a lot of ideas) and your blog has been so inspirational to me. Thank you!


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 .

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.
