As many of you know, there was a time when photography (the kind taken with a real camera) was a huge part of who I am and what I did here on Bliss. Times change…thanks to the prevalence of phone photography and the accessibility of the camera phone, my old school photos fell to the wayside. Which is crazy, because some of my all-time favorite photos and moments were trapped inside my trusty DSLR. One of those “top 5” moments I had sadly neglected was the trip my family and I took to Iceland a few years back.

We had the privilege of experiencing this magical place with our dearest friends…one of whom is an Icelandic native. Due to the importance of this moment I lugged my big girl camera along and attempted to capture this place that was unlike anything I had ever experienced. I also took my phone. No surprise at all, my phone photos fell short. However, the photos taken with my big camera did not disappoint. I knew I needed to display a few of these in a very special way. It turns out the very best way to do so happened to be with a company I have been following for awhile, Framebridge.

I simply chose 2 of my favorite Icelandic photos:

I uploaded them directly to the Framebridge site, chose the perfect frame and mat, and voila! I really couldn’t be happier with how they turned out and the process was beyond easy. I am of course inspired to go through the rest of my photos and create and display Framebridge masterpieces throughout my home.

Wait! I simply couldn’t make this partnership all about me. Use promo code “blissblog15” at Framebridge.com to get 15% off your first order with Framebridge. Valid until 12/31/2017.

Sponsored: Serena and Lily Round Jute Rug

September 4, 2017

I am obsessed with rugs. All shapes, sizes, materials, etc. So, when Serena and Lily asked me to review their beautiful jute rug I was all over it. Of course, the fact that this jute rug is the most amazing round version also played had me beyond thrilled to participate in this collaboration.  I had been admiring this gorgeous round jute rugs all over pinterest and had been jumping at the bit to add one to my ample rug collection.

As you know, my mid-century home is a work in progress. One of my favorite rooms is the sunroom off of our living area. Unfortunately, I had been less than thrilled with the flooring…until I dressed it up with my new jute rug from Serena and Lily. This rug fits in perfectly with my scandinavian inspired interior and is the finishing touch I have been waiting for. I am also pleasantly surprised with the durability of this particular rug. I have tried other floor coverings in this space but have found that they are short-lived additions. Due to the climate conditions in my neck of the woods, dust is a huge problem….so much so that I have had to roll up most of my rugs until the dry dusty summer passes. The Serena and Lily round jute rug has proven to hold up perfectly, even during this time of year and does not need to be stored until more favorable conditions apply. I am also thrilled with the natural fibers and appearance…the perfect design addition to compliment my plants and natural wood elements.

Perhaps the best news of all is that Serena and Lily is generously offering a discount to my blissful readers. Valid for one week only, Serena and Lily is offering 15% percent off! Just use code “RUGLOVE-BLISS”…lucky you!

Sponsored: Serena & Lily Calistoga Bath Collection

August 1, 2017

throughout the years i have had a few constants when it comes to home goods, one of which is my addiction to gorgeous towels. when everything else in my tiny apartments in my 20’s didn’t seem to matter, my sheets and towels have always been on point. due to my dedication to bath linens i have humbly declared myself a bit of an expert when it comes to the very best. which is why i was completely on board when serena & lily asked to collaborate and review their calistoga bath collection.

i am thrilled to say that these are currently my very best bath towels.the calistoga towels are made from the finest turkish aegean cotton, remaining soft wash after wash. each towel is constructed using a unique weaving process that creates a larger surface material using long cotton loops for excellent absorbency.

in order to earn the title of the best bath towels, they also have to be very nice looking. such is the case with my set of calistoga towels. i chose them in the tranquil shade of marine and i couldn’t be happier.

i think i may have found my long-time favorites.

lucky you! valid for one week only, serena and lily is offering 15% percent off! Just use code “TOWELCRUSH15″…yay!
