Yeast, Love, & Hoppiness | New Blog

Happy Friday! If you follow The Lovely Side on Twitter or Facebook, you probably saw the news. While will still be my main squeeze and number one blog priority, but I've decided to keep things fresh and start another project on the side. Enter: Yeast, Love, & Hoppiness.  

You see, the bf and I are always trying new beers. And sometimes we lose track of the ones we like, the ones we didn't like, and what certain ones were even called. We decided to start little beer notebooks to jot down notes, but then I thought we should take it a step further. The blog will feature our non beer snob brew reviews, adventures to breweries, recipes baked or cooked using beer, and more. (You some beer crafts and projects will probably sneak in there, too.)

So if you like brew, head over and check out the new blog! You can also follow @YeastLoveHops on Twitter and like Yeast, Love, & Hoppiness on Facebook




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.
