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?

Guest Post: Photo Danny Foto

We’ve got a special guest post today from Danny of Photo Danny Foto and she’s got an awesome style post for you! Enjoy- Liz


It’s been 4 months now since I moved to Richmond and all has been a roller coaster trying to start a new life here, preparing my wedding (this October!!), missing my friends and family, trying to get a new job and meeting new people. All of this could sound hard to swallow but the truth is that I like the way things are going and in the meantime take the opportunity to keep sharing my world with you through my blog!

The idea behind this feature was to create three different looks wearing the same statement piece. Just to have fun putting together different outfits for different moods. So I hope you like them and get inspired to look awesome, regardless of where you’re going or what the occasion is. xoxo, Danny

I love everything about this outfit, it’s simple and effortless but at the same time fun and fresh for the summer in the city. I can’t stop wearing these Adilette custom slides from Adidas Original, they are so comfortable and easy to style, specially with this weather.

I believe that denim can be an excellent option to wear and create a relaxed but yet formal outfit. For this look I styled my denim shirt with my white Zara trousers and a pair of Schutz heels. The result is great because is a very wearable outfit that has certain formality with a “risky” and fun side.

Last but not least, a look just perfect to go out. It brings the fun for a Friday night, with this incredible skirt from Topshop. Don’t forget to choose colourful accessories to contrast the skirt like I did with my Ferzu necklace, adding the perfect touch with a clutch from Kate Spade.

Summer Favorites via Christina @ Tiramisu for Breakfast

Written by , Posted in Guest Post

This guest post comes from Christina, the lovely girl behind Tiramisu for Breakfast. This Sephora-obsessed beauty/fashion/lifestyle blogger makes every day feel like a special occasion!

Here are a few things I’ve been reaching for now that the weather’s warm.

Summer Faves


1. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed: I first talked about this here. I have a lighter version of this product but this rose gold shade looks amazing when with a little bit of a tan. I put this on my cheekbones, cupid’s bow and a just a little on my forehead and chin with a fan brush like this one.

2. St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse: I’m so excited to have found this! I love the way a spray tan looks and I like to get them before special occasions but found making the time to get an appointment inconvenient. I bought the little mitt to use with it and I just apply it when I get out of the shower. It’s super easy to use and looks great, but it doesn’t last quite as long as a spray tan from the salon.

3. Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 : Another product I’ve mentioned before; his stuff has been a game-changer. I love that it’s got built in SPF.

4. Roses de Chloe: I loooove this scent.

5. Essie “Wicked”: I saw a girl wearing a dark burgundy polish recently with all white and thought it looked so cool. I love that it’s unexpected.

6. Make Up For Ever HP Pressed Powder: I don’t normally need to set my makeup but I started adding this as a last step in my routine to help my makeup last the whole day.

7. Diorsnow BB Cream: This stuff feels so luxurious, but it only comes in one shade so I can really only wear it if I’ve been using self tanner. Even though it has SPF 50, it doesn’t have that sunblock smell. I add this under my foundation when I know I’m going to be outside a lot. (When I’m at the pool, I use Algenist’s Ultra Lightweight SPF 50 to touch up.)
