Hump Day!

 (image via: here.)

This isn't your ordinary Hump Day!  After today, I'm "over the hump" of Finals Week.  Well, in actuality... Thursday is my last day.  I have 2 finals tomorrow---one right after the other!  Ugh.  At least I don't have any Friday, right?
Well, in case you need a study break or a few minutes of procrastination, here are my recommendations: 

If all that classical music (for making you a more productive studier) is making your ears bleed, listen to  Seriously, it's a godsend.  There are streaming music channels and lots of playlists.  I prefer "Rage" because it has thee best selection of party/dancing music.  But you can pick "Day Drinkin'," "Dubstep," or "Chillin'" of those suit your study break better. ;)
If your eyes hurt from staring at textbooks all day, check out I Want to Be Her.  Andrea Linett (former creative director of Lucky magazine) features illustrations and photos of stylish women she meets on the street, in shops, etc. and breaks down their style.  It makes for great fashion inspiration.

And lastly, a site that gobbled up precious hours of last night's sleepy-time... I present: Damn You Auto Correct!  I don't have an iPhone, but this website makes me want one just for the sheer hilarity of embarrassing, disgusting, and WTF text/chat messages.  Consider yourselves warned though when I say that you will become addicted.  I sat in my apartment living all alone last night reading auto correct mishaps---I laughed so hard I had tears!

Okay---now to spend the rest of my day NOT procrastinating with FratMusic, I Want to Be Her, or Damn You Auto Correct... and study instead!!

Hahahaha oh my gosh, DYAC is the best thing ever. I found it a couple of months ago, but I rediscovered it last night. Glad to know I'm not the only one who was laughing so hard I was crying ;)

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.
