Are you a Lovely Undergrad?

We all know that dorms aren't the prettiest spaces to live in.  College budgets can't afford a Gossip Girl wardrobe.  Our cooking skills pale in comparison to Rachel Ray.  And communal bathrooms are associated with harrowing experiences.  Lovely Undergrad is all about making college lovely. Whether it's diy solutions to decorating your dorm or apartment or putting together Blair Waldorf-esque ensembles using sale scores and thrift store finds.  From learning to cook simple, healthy meals to making the communal bathroom as un-terrifying as possible...

How do you make your college life lovely?  Lovely Undergrad wants to know and wants to feature Lovely Undergrads all over the nation (and world!) to showcase all the loveliness that's out there in colleges and to give hope to all the students struggling to find loveliness in their college lives.

So whatever is your lovely niche (decor, fashion, food, entertainment, beauty, health, you-name-it)... tell LU what makes YOU a Lovely Undergrad.

Fill out this form and LU will be in touch!

Ahh! This is soo cool! I don't think I'm lovely undergrand status yet- but it's my goal to make my room next fall up to those standards- it'd be a dream to be featured on here! heheh. :)


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.
