Autumn. Besides the return of cozy sweaters, warm scarves, and all things pumpkin spice flavored – there's something about the season that inspires nostalgia and romance. A chilly evening is the perfect excuse to grab your girls, your sister(s) and mom, or your guy and head to the cinema – after grabbing a pumpkin spice latte, of course. And just in time for this cozy, nostalgic, romance-is-in-the-air weather, The Best of Me is hitting theatres. 

Based on the bestselling novel by Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me tells the story of Dawson and Amanda, two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend. Their bittersweet reunion reignites the love they've never forgotten, but soon they discover the forces that drove them apart twenty years ago live on, posing even more serious threats today. Spanning decades, this epic love story captures the enduring power of our first true love, and the wrenching choices we face when confronted with elusive second chances.

The Best of Me stars Michelle Monaghan, Luke Bracey, Liana Liberato, and... James Marsden (swoon). Plus, the soundtrack is loaded with songs by Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, David Nail, Colbie Caillat, Kip Moore, and the Eli Young Band. Seven-time GRAMMY Award winners, Lady Antebellum, wrote (with Monty Powell) and recorded I Did With You, a special song inspired by the story in the film.

To celebrate the release of The Best of Me – coming to theatres on October 17 – I'm giving away a special prize pack courtesy of Relativity Media. 
One lucky winner (with a U.S. address) will receive:

• $25 Sephora gift card for the perfect date night look at the movies

• Copy of the book (movie tie-in cover)

• Official soundtrack featuring Lady Antebellum

Here's the soundtrack listing: Lady Antebellum "I Did With You" - Hunter Hayes "Dream Girl" - SHEL and Gareth Dunlop "Hold On" - Colbie Caillat "In Love Again" - Thomas Rhett "The Way Things Go" - Thompson Square "Borrowed Time" - Kip Moore "Lead Me" - Kacey Musgraves "Love Is A Liar" - Lady Antebellum "Falling For You" - Eric Paslay "Rain From Heaven" - David Nail "All The Way" - Eli Young Band "Unchanged" - Cowboy Junkies "Sweet Jane" - Phoebe Hoffman "Crossroads"

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.

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.
