Trendy Tuesday Inspiration- via Glamista Home

Written by , Posted in Guest Post

Today’s guest post is from Glamista Home- a lifestyle blog. It’s about the things that make you happy, the things that make your life richer and the things that make your place a home. Her blog posts are full of home decor inspiration, trip and activity ideas, some food recipes that spark your fancy and much, much more to live a beautiful life. Enjoy! -Liz

Labor Day marked the official end of the summer and I miss it already. As much as I love summer I am looking forward to the beautiful colors of fall. I always enjoy the gold and reds of the Indian summer foliage.Today’s post was inspired by the changing colors of leaves. Although this post was inspired by the gold tones of autumn, this color can be used in a variety of items, such as lamps, candelabras, bowls, etc. the entire year round. I hope you enjoy the gold and brass shades as much as I do.Here is a list of all the items featured in this week’s Trendy Tuesday:Gold_Inspired_Collage

(as with other Trendy Tuesday posts, I do not owe any of the images and the sources are listed below)

ZGallerie Phantom Candelabra this candle holder could perfectly decorate a fireplace or an entryway.

Pottery Barn Clarissa Chandelier I can totally imagine this beautiful chandelier over a breakfast nook table

Jonathan Adler Gold Glazed Birds these bowls would be perfect for any room. They add a touch of elegance to a dining table or could be a perfect conversation/focal piece on a coffee table.

CB2 Ai Bud Vase These vases would look lovely on a book shelf where you display some of your favorite treasures.

Pottery Barn Cheetah Pillow Who doesn’t like some animal print in their life? :) I love this pillow; it’s perfect to create a cozy spot on the sofa or a comfy reading nook.

Pottery Barn Vince Accent Stool This stool can be used as a side table or additional seating.

Which is your favorite piece?  Do you like decorating with gold or changing your home decor with the seasons?

Writing Submission Checklist via Beyond Your Blog

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

As a network specifically created for bloggers to connect, share, and improve their blogging skills, we love this Writing Submission Checklist from Susan at Beyond Your Blog. She was kind enough to share it with us and it’s a great resource for those looking to do more guest posting! – Liz 

We’ve  come up with a quick submission checklist for those of you out there hesitating about submitting your writing to those big scary sites (that really are not so scary at all), because you are not sure how it works or what to do.

It’s easy, I promise.  Once you have a site in mind to submit to and a piece to submit, start checking off these to-do’s and let us know when you get accepted (or rinse and repeat if it doesn’t go your way). Click to enlarge.

Fire, Flour & Fork Blogger Opportunity

Written by , Posted in Blogging

Hey bloggers! Big Spoon Agency has a pretty exciting opportunity for us! I’ll let Kevin share the details: 

fire flour fork

We want to personally extend an invitation for you to come immerse yourself in Richmond’s dining scene and have a special meetup during Fire, Flour and Fork weekend this fall.  Fire, Flour and Fork is Virginia’s premiere gathering for the food curious. To be held on Halloween weekend in Richmond, VA, one of Frommer’s Top Destinations of 2014, this highly-curated culinary event is organized by Real Richmond Food Tours and presenting sponsor Virginia Is For Lovers. It brings together nationally-known chefs with the region’s best talent for one-of-a-kind meal collaborations, demos, and workshops with local restaurants. Additionally, food producers, cookbook authors, filmmakers, poets, playwrights, culinary historians, craft spirit makers and more will be participating to celebrate Richmond’s complex history and dining scene. This event is the first of its kind in the Mid-Atlantic region.

 

How does this opportunity work? Simple. Write a preview post outlining your ideal schedule for Saturday’s culinary track. You must also include a link to buy tickets in your post. Shoot it over to us, and we’ll follow up with a ticket so that you can attend on Saturday, 11/1/14. You’ll experience a total of four sessions, plus book signings, a tasting square, networking opportunities, and facetime with some of Virginia’s most prolific food purveyors. All we ask in return is that you share blog post with your social networks. You pick your schedule, and we make it happen. Everybody wins.

 

The first twenty bloggers to respond with a published post will be selected for this opportunity. To be eligible for your ticket, you must complete your post with preferred tracks and have it emailed to kevin@bigspoonagency.com by September 30th.

 

To choose your track and learn more about the weekend, get started over on our website - fireflourandfork.com.

 

Huge thank you to Kevin & Big Spoon Agency for the opportunity! Got questions? Shoot Kevin an e-mail! We’ll try to keep you posted on how many spots are left, but if you know you want to join, start writing your post as soon as possible!
