Her Campus

Hey lovelies!

In case you've been wondering where I've been lately, I owe you an explanation.  I'm will be serving as the Her Campus Campus Correspondent for my college, Iowa State University.  In case you've never heard of Her Campus (shame on you! go check it out!)... it is an online media platform and magazine written by college journalists for college women.  Each branch updates readers on school news, profiles campus celebrities and cuties, highlights events and shares relevant stories that are personalized for women at that particular college.  All that content is a supplement to, an online magazine for all college women.  

As Campus Correspondent... I've been busy getting the word out, messing around with social media, recruiting and building a staff, getting organized, brainstorming ideas and preparing content for the February 8 launch!  This is all very exciting!  A little overwhelming, but so far I haven't been stressed out.  I thrive on this kinda stuff.  

I know that in the past, I've managed to post pretty much daily on Lovely Undergrad.  Lovely Undergrad will by no means fall by the wayside.  But my publishing schedule will be undergoing some changes.  Expect 4-5 posts a week versus the typically 6-7.  Once I get myself into a routine, things should pick up again.  

So anyways... I hope your Spring Semesters have started out well!  Keep stopping by.  Be sure to check out Her Campus and see if your college has a branch.  And check out Her Campus Iowa State on February 8---when all my hard work will pay off!!

I've been following your blog for quite some time now & almost died when I saw this post!!! My roommate & I are going to be launching her campus' BYU branch on the 8th as well! We're not as caught up with the whole thing, but we're getting there! I look forward to working with you on her campus assignments in the future!!!



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.
