Feature Friday: Getting Ready for Fall

I love reading blogs, probably more than books at the moment. I love all of the wonderful information I can find so quickly and you're all just so creative and have great content to write about! I took some time this week to do a little reading and came across three blog posts that I wanted to share with everyone.

The first is a great post by the author of Struggling to be Stylish on the various ways you can jazz up your corporate desk. Work from home? No problem, the tips will work for a home office also. I truly believe that a pretty, functional and organized desk makes for a wonderful workspace. I can't work amongst the chaos of clutter and I never feel inspired in a boring space. What better time to do a little sprucing up than fall, since you'll be spending more time indoors.

 With my favorite season- fall-on its way, I've been getting excited about holiday crafts, DIY projects and switching up our summer home decor of seashells and beach colors to that of warm, earthy and woodsy accessories and colors. Throw pillows are such a great way to instantly change a room because of the many colors, textures and sizes available.

Have you had your eye on a cable knit sweater pillow like the one above from Potterybarn? Well, Karen of Strictly Simple Style was after that look and she was able to accomplish it for less than $5! Visit her blog post to see how she transformed a thrift store sweater into something fabulous and at a fraction of the cost of major retailers.

I don't know anyone who doesn't love a good giveaway. While perusing Kristin's blog, My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia, I came across her giveaway which features her most recent sponsor. She is giving away a custom window treatment. Pop over to enter and don't forget to browse her blog as she has a lot of great DIY projects and design inspiration too.

Speaking of sponsors, I wanted to introduce you to my latest sponsor. Vanessa of Luxuria jewelry took advantage of my $5/mo. ad space promo to share her lovely jewels with all of you. Her pieces are classic, elegant and unique. She is offering Classy & Fabulous readers either 15% off of your order OR free shipping from Spain to anywhere you are located. Use Promo code: CLASSYWOMAN15 to get the deal. Click HERE to view her pieces, below is a sneak peak. I love the look of these rings and the amethyst drop earrings-so pretty!

Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be putting the wreath up on our door and doing some fall cleaning this weekend in preparation for another yard sale. My dad is going to be flying in from California next week for a little visit, I'm looking forward to the company and so excited to see him, it's nearly been a whole year! What are you up to?
