New Poll: Halloween Costumes!

If you haven't noticed, there's a new poll over in the right-hand menu beneath the Fall Giveaway section. In the spirit of Halloween, Lovely Undergrad wants to know what kind of costume you'll be flaunting this Halloween.

Will it be something scary and spooky... like a witch or ghoul?
Something cute, fun, and easy to diy... like a pirate or cheerleader?
Something sexy and naughty... like the classic school girl or police officer?
Something pretty and girly... like a princess or ballerina?
Something weird and a little nerdy... like a Harry Potter character?
...Or are you still trying to figure it out?

Leave your costume ideas here in a comment... but be sure to take part in the poll, too!

I'm going to be a butterfly. Technically it's a sexy butterfly but that feels wrong to type somehow. Sexy insects? Weird. But it looks good on!

I have been completely inspired by all your amazing costume ideas! I think I'll do the Cat in the Hat since I LOVE Dr. Seuss. Thank you so much for your ideas! They have been the best ones I've found so far in my extensive online searching for ideas :)

I really don't know what to be this Halloween. I have a week off next week to decide though.

I'm thinking dead nurse. I figured I could come up with a fantastic backstory about how I was working one afternoon and the zombie apocalypse began. Patients started pouring in. One poor gentlement was thought to be dead, but was a zombie and attacked me while I was putting him in the morgue. :)

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 .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

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.
