Link Love: The Refined Graduate

Hey lovelies,

Just wanted to let you know about a new blog in the blogosphere.  Tyler Clarey is a graduate Interior Design student at Iowa State University.  I interviewed him and toured his apartment for my article in Trend, an on-campus fashion magazine.  After the issue's release, I'll be sharing photos of his fantastic space here on Lovely Undergrad.  For now, you should head over and check out his new blog The Refined Graduate: A Guide to Living the Graduate Life in Style.  There's lot of design eye candy and inspiring photos for you to enjoy.

I'll definitely put her among my weekly reads (because reading daily, it seems, is quite ambitious no matter how passionate you are at what you do).

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 .

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.
