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.

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.)

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.
