Hello December

(image via: here.)

Happy December 1st, lovelies!

Can you believe how fast 2010 flew by?!  Another year, another 365... jeepers!  Anyway, December 2010 here at Lovely Undergrad is going to be full of wintry wondeful-ness.  What's in store, you wonder?  Well... giveaways for lovely readers, gift guides to cover all the people on your list, decorating ideas for your dorm/apartment, holiday fashion, New Years' prep, and some exciting news about a new Lovely Undergrad feature.

I put up my lovely little Christmas tree last night:

So stay tuned and invite your friends to end 2010 in a lovely manner. (:




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 .

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.
