Friday Favorites- 9/5

Written by , Posted in Friday Favorites

Hopefully you all had a wonderful (and relaxing) Labor Day weekend! Is anyone else excited for this crazy hot weather to leave us? Bring on the fall weather, boots, scarves, hot chocolate, and pumpkin!

If you still have a little time left in your schedule for a mini-vacation, you can explore some of Virginia’s lesser known spots, like the Booker T. Washington National Monument & Memorial:

In the Piedmont has a great recap of the spot, as well as a few other stops around Virginia! Go check it out.

Now it’s your turn to share:

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?

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Phew, where did August go? For most of you, this probably feels like the last weekend of summer! We’ve had lots of news happening on the blog, so if you didn’t see the Fire, Flour, & Fork blogger opportunity or the great tips for pitching your content, go check them out!

Need a last minute recipe for the long weekend? Try this delicious-looking flourless chocolate cake from Bourbon and Brown Sugar. Doesn’t it look amazing?

So before you head off for Labor Day cookouts and last minute beach visits, link up your best post of the week to share it with other bloggers across the state!

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.
