Anthropologie: The Intern Diaries

I'm an Anthro-phile for sure.  While I can't yet afford the lovely items from Anthropologie (thanks to a college student budget) I haunt the website and eagerly await the arrival of each catalog so that I can be inspired by the styling, the colors, the atmosphere. 

I also haunt the Anthropologie Facebook page.  I've especially enjoyed their albums The Intern Diaries, parts I, II, and III.  

"Since she first stepped foot in Philadelphia, our smart-as-a-whip summer intern Nicole, a 25-year-old London student who came to us by way of winning our Central Saint Martins print design competition, has been documenting her visit—taking photos and notes of work, play and everything in between, as to not forget a moment. So what exactly has she been up to? It’s all here in her first (but certainly not last) “diary” installment..." (-Anthropologie)

Nicole most certainly was surrounded by inspiration, ideas, and creativity every day.

I wonder if Anthropologie offers any internships opps for Journalism majors?

I'd swoon at the opportunity!

Thanks for sharing your experience on the Anthro-fb, Nicole!  (I searched high and low on the internet for her last name and some sort of contact info.  Nicole, if you're reading this... would you like to do an interview for Lovely Undergrad?) :)




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.
