Behind The Scenes: Shoot for Rue Magazine

Go behind the scenes as Susanna Salk shoots her home! The shoot was done for her upcoming book. But, she then took those beautiful images and combined them into a lovely article in one of my favorite online shelter magazines Rue Mag. Below is a cool video of the photo shoot & then the corresponding RUE article.  It's cool to see how one piece of the project leads into another.  

The final piece, Salk's new book Home Sweet Sumptuous Bohemian Interiors is scheduled for release on Oct. 4th, 2011.

Blog Spotlight: {this is glamorous}

This episode of Blog Spotlight features one of the most popular blogs and beautiful sites in the "lifestyle" genre.  It is one of my "mentor sites". I love {this is glamorous} for so many reasons. The content is so above & beyond many lifestyle blogs out there.  It gives me endless inspiration (and ASPIRATION).  I could gush for hours. But, I won't. 

Hopefully, I will be able to introduce you to new sites that you aren't familiar with, but from time to time you just have to spotlight the very best of class.  {this is glamorous} is one of the very best.  

"This award-winning design & lifestyle blog explores an enchanting array of topics including design, interiors, travel, fashion, art, photography, adventures in love and the daily search for beautiful things." What else is there to say?  Oh wait --- {this is glamorous} is listed as one of the London times' 50 of the world's best design blogs too. That's pretty impressive.

Blog Spotlight: Pop Candy

In today's blog spotlight is one of my favorite and most visited blog's.  USA Today's Pop Candy.  Pop Candy is blogged by the charming Whitney Matheson.  It is my one stop shop for all things pop culture.  "Cult movies, comic books, indie rock, sci-fi, '80s greats, sweet links, general weirdness!"says Whitney. It's everything she says, and more.  It's an entire community of misfits that worship & adore her and all the amazing content she provides day after day.  

I have been reading Pop Candy for about 6 years - pretty much every day.  I start my day with "Early Buzz" (headlines & cool links) and really love Tuesday's "Cool Stuff on DVD" feature" and my total favorite "Pop Candy Mail Bag" where Whitney answer's reader's questions about all pop culture topics.  Whitney also provides content via Twitter, Podcasts, etc. She's everywhere.  Check out Pop Candy - if we are friends, I'm pretty sure you'll find something on there that will interest you too! Pinky swear.
