New Look!

Hey! In case you subscribe via an rss feed or reader, Lovely Undergrad has a new look!  I was going to wait until January 1st, 2011 to release the makeover... but I just couldn't!  All the navigation and menu items are the same.  The big change occurred with the header and background.  The busy, colorful (almost wild!) background is gone and replaced with a nice charcoal gray... though the pattern still exists more subtly in the header.  I hope you like it!  I think it is overall cleaner, simpler, and more elegant.  I sometimes felt like the busy background took away from some of the photos posted.

Anyway... let me know if it looks funny on your computer or anything! xoxo.

Awesome layout! May I suggest having the words bleed off the page into the gray background? I think it would make it look more cohesive


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.
