Are Photos of Your Messy Apartment Worth $3000? Thinks So!

Confession time.  Sometimes my room gets a little messy.  Ok, well... if we're telling the truth, whole truth, and nothing but the truth, my room is in a state of creative chaos 90% of the time.
 Half-drank Cokes.  Unfinished diy-projects.  Opened and unopened mail.  Lots of magazines.  (I cleaned especially for your guys before post the photo tour of my bedroom!)  When it looks like a pigsty, it just isn't worth taking pictures of.  But wait! thinks otherwise.  In fact, the guys over there think pictures of your  messy apartment are worth a whopping $3000!

Is your pad a pigsty, but you just can't find the motivation to get up off the couch and do something about it?  Well, how's $3,000 bucks for motivation?

Just in time for spring cleaning, is scouring the nation for the messiest apartment with the contest SOS! Out with the Mess!

The contest opened on April 2nd and will run to April 23rd.  Contestants just have to like on Facebook and upload their messiest apartment photo under the contest tab.'s panel of judges will sift through the photos and choose five finalists.  Then, voting gets turned over to Facebook friends! The public decides from the five finalists who wins the grand prize of $3,000. The four finalists each win $500. And the winners are announced on or around April 30th!

Think your space has what it takes to nab the grand prize?  You can use the money to clean, hire a maid, buy new apartment swag, or do whatever you need to give your digs a facelift!

Think about it?  Would you rather vacuum, dust, scrub and clean your way to a cleaner apartment?  Nahhh. It's much easier to grab your camera, snap a few picks of your messy space, and enter SOS! Out with the Mess!  (You can always clean later... when you're rolling around in $3,000, right?)

My cousin's makati apartment has the exact same messy look like that. Maybe she should've joined this contest; she would've won.
My room looks a little bit messier that yours. Us girls have really something in common, rooms. I guess we just feel free to express ourselves.


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.
