Start 2017 off lovely with a FREE Fresh Start Kit from Grove

I don't know about you lovelies, but one of my 2017 resolutions is to really whip this house into shape. That doesn't just mean peeling wallpaper and painting walls (though there's plenty of that to do), but it also means keeping it spic and span. And who's going to help me? Why, Mrs. Meyer's of course.

It's no secret that I'm a Mrs. Meyer's cleaning product hoarder collector. Her hand soap brightens up every bathroom sink in the house. I can't remember the last time I used any other counter spray or dish soap. And my under-the-sink cabinet is well-stocked with Mrs. Meyer's scents for every season. (A girl's gotta have her seasonal cleaning fragrances, you know?)

For a long time, I've wanted more from the dear old Mrs. Meyer's. Like, something not just for my kitchen counters and dishes. Something for me. And a while back, I chanced upon a special edition peony hand lotion. It smelled soooo good—just like the cleaning products. And oh! How it moisturized my hands and arms with just a pea-sized dab.

But that's it. That's the only time I came across lotion from Mrs. Meyer's.

Until now. Mrs. Meyer's now offers hand lotion.

And for new customers, Grove is offering a special offer that includes not only a FREE hand lotion in the scent of your choice—but also a bunch of other FREE products worth a $40 value!

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.
