The font is so huge that I have to scroll to look at a single entry which doesn't make sense, to me at least. The orange squiggle for the logo... I don't get it. Looks like a child's design website logo. And what happened to the cities? That was my favorite part. Thought it was great to see trends in different parts of the country. Very generic and dumbed down, difficult to look at. Sorry to bitch and moan about the changes, but it's quite clunky now and not at all streamlined as is claimed. Just being honest. Please tweak.

The cinematography has to be spectacular for us to pick up a film on Blu-ray as opposed to DVD, but it's totally worth it when it is. Netflix streaming was fine for a few months, but their catalog was too limited so we canceled.

Hello Kitty humidifier -- a pleasant cool mist jets out of the cat ears and the mid-section glows a soft purple -- practical and pleasant to look at, if you like Hello Kitty of course.

I think the After is fantastic and shows a lot of energy. The Before was sort of lifeless. Bold color choice -- looks great!

I miss throwing out trash nightly in my former apt. building's dumpster. (sigh)
Our current apt. building only allows for trash pickup 2x per week and recycling pick up 1x per week. For fear of attracting 'intruders,' I leave things like empty pizza boxes in the fridge till recycling day... much to the chagrin of my husband who expects pizza to be in the box.

Already starting to hoard... incandescent bulbs are much easier on the eyes for reading and we need them for our dimmers. We don't replace them very often and they don't contain mercury which is much better for the environment.

My favorite entry I've seen thus far -- great job! Very tranquil room with thoughtfully chosen furnishings, colors and decorative accents. And, as others have mentioned, love that little painting above the bed! Is it an antique or a family heirloom?
