Quick & Easy Tomato, Mushroom, Carrot, Parmesan, Garlic 'n' Herb Angel Hair Pasta


Pasta! It's what's for lunch! :)

For lunch, I decided to get a little experimental in the kitchen.  I whipped up this simple pasta from scratch and it was soooo good that I snapped a quick picture so that I could share it here on the blog.  

What you need: Angel hair pasta. Olive oil. Couple cloves of garlic, finely chopped. One roma tomato, all sliced up. A couple white mushrooms, sliced. Handful of shredded carrot. Herbs (basil, parsley) to taste. Parmesan.

(I know, I know... I didn't provide very exact measurements of ingredients.  I usually just add stuff in, estimating it by sight and add more of one ingredient if I'm craving it.)

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add angel hair.  While the pasta is cooking, add olive oil to a separate pan.  Heat.  Add tomato, mushroom, carrot, garlic, and herbs.  Let simmer so that all the flavors can blend!  When the pasta is al dente, strain.  Pour the contents of the other pan on top and stir.  Top with parmesan! 

It's pretty delicious!  Not to mention fast, easy, and cheap.

(Photo at right is a bit blurry.  I guess I was too excited to eat it to hold the camera steady! :S)

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.

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

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.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

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.)
