In case you haven't checked it out yet, I wanted to share with you a few favored highlights from Rue's anniversary issue...
Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge was featured in this issue's Blogger Side-by-Side. Love! This is my favorite feature in Rue. I love reading the interviews with featured bloggers and seeing their darling illustrated selves!
I'm smitten with this room. The mix of patterns! The bright colors! The furniture arrangement!
This spread is amazing. So glittery. So romantic. I'm swooning.
This caught my eye because I'm absolutely obsessed with the Venus de Milo. How gorgeous?!
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.
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.
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.)
