Gift Guide #2: Nightlifers


Have a friend on your list who
lives for the weekend nightlife?
We've got you covered with
these club-going gift ideas:

1. This Taylor Ruffle and Stud wristlet will hold going-out essentials: id, cash, lipgloss, phone. 

2. Volum'Express Falsies, Waterproof, in Very Black.  Why?  Cuz long lashes are a must!

3. A sparkly sequined tank is a go-to barhopping basic.  And you can't go wrong with black.

4. You can never have too many pairs of opaque black tights like these from the Gap.

5. Pumps amp up the sexiness... and the pain.  That's where Dr. Scholl's Fast Flats come in.

6. Go glamorous with OPI's Burlesque collection of little teasers. ;)

7. Fragrance is always a gift favorite.  Choose VS's fabulously edgy Love Rocks

8. Rihanna's new album LOUD is perfect for any getting dolled up/pre-club routine.

9. Shine up lips with Luna Twilight 'Femme Fatale' lipgloss

10. A Ms.Taken fake engagement ring to ward off unwanted d-bags and creepers.




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.
