Ted Ligety & YES | @CitiEveryStep #EveryStep | Citi + Every Step of the Way


Support U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes by supporting Citi Every Step of the Way. All it takes is a simple click to help decide where $500,000 go. And today, I'm spotlighting one of the Olympians and his program in need of the funds.

In 1995, young Ted Ligety started out ski racing. Despite getting off to a slow start, his love for skiing was too strong to give up. He persevered – studying faster kids, training year-round, and perfecting his technique through practice after practice.

Over a decade later, Ted took an Olympic Gold Medal for the U.S. at the 2006 Winter Games in Torino. Four years later at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, Ted came in 9th place and found his passion, determination, and Olympic dreams challenged once again.



Three years of training and fine-tuning later, Ted rose to become the first man in 45 years to win 3 gold medals at the Ski Racing World Championships in Austria.Now in Sochi, Ted continues to pursue his love of skiing. But it doesn't stop there. His passion and perseverance goes beyond the sport. Skiing pushes him to his greatest potential.

To help children and teens push themselves to their greatest potential, Ted has teamed up with Citi to support Youth Enrichment Services Operation Snowsports (YES). YES helps urban youth get out on the slopes where they learn to not only ski, but also build strong work ethic, harness determination, and build self confidence..

With a simple click you can vote for Ted Ligety and YES. Citi has donated $500K to the U.S. Olympic Committee to help 9 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes and their 9 causes in need.

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.)
