Gift Ideas with Caldrea's Summer Entertaining Kit (Get one for free!)

Summer—'tis the season for bridal showers and weddings. Not to mention college students heading off to college dorms and many moving into their first apartments. And, of course, a housewarming party here or there. I love gift-giving for these special occasions, but it's easy to end up stumped trying to find a balance between budget, function, and style. 

Maybe—like me—you're already stocked up on summer-scented cleaning supplies. Maybe—also like me—you're on the hunt for a cute gift idea for a friend's housewarming, bridal shower, or college send-off. This free Caldrea Summer Entertaining Kit is a perfect foundation for an adorable gift basket.

Here's what you'll need
for a lovely Caldrea gift basket

1. Choose a Caldrea dish soap and countertop spray in one of their summer scents. 
(Pear blossom agave, sea salt neroli, ginger pomelo, or tangelo palm frond.)

2. Toss in a pretty tea towel.
I'm a firm believer that one can never have too many cheerful kitchen towel. Pick one with a lovely pattern, saying, or embroidered image.

3. Add a useful kitchen item.
Something simple and inexpensive, but that will totally get used—like a spoon rest, small colander, French press, or nice set of measuring spoons.

4. Pack it all in a basket that matches your recipient's style.
Think of how she decorates (or dresses) and try to match that. Vintage crates, rustic woven baskets, monogrammed storage bins, and metal baskets are all great options.

That's it! It's a great idea to tuck away for when you need a simple, useful, and lovely gift idea.

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.

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.)

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.
