200-square-feet in NYC never looked so cool. Lysee didn't skimp on the colour and wall-coverings in her tiny space. She created the feeling of more space by having defined areas, like adding a kitchen cart to zone off the kitchen. The loft bed is a huge space-saver, and I bet it's more fun sleeping on the top bunk, too!
We were just like any other couple with smart phones: checked in on Facebook or Foursquare, had work emails set up so we looked at them way too often, shared funny photos and spent part of work surfing the internet. Then it all changed. We ditched our smart phones and have lived to tell the tale.
We just moved into a lovely older house that we're planning on renting for at least a year. It doesn't have a microwave, and I'm inclined to keep it that way. I am seriously at a loss, however, for how to heat up leftovers — especially meat — without making them rubbery and dry. Any tips for this erstwhile cook?
Public grills get a bad rap. I can definitely see why. They're always coated in the mysterious carbony remains of meals past. There's usually some bird poop on or around them. The ash pile inside is a ghastly reminder that anything — anything — could've been cooked on these rusty little public servants. I promise with just a little work, a public grill can be a totally serviceable cooking option.
We recently moved and had to ditch the old cat tree after two years of love and abuse. It plain fell apart in the process of moving so we started the hunt for a new tree. We wanted something sturdy, affordable, and something that wouldn't take up too much room. Problem was, the cat trees you typically find on the market are made out of cheap plastic and particle or composite board. After some research, we decided to use the wallspace to the side and above our couch to create a wall mounted cat tree using a mixture of shelves and including a scratching post.
