Win INSPIRE Q Benches

Fashionable Hostess Giveaway_Vertical Giveaway DetailsGrey Fabric Stools

Remember when I debuted my Living Room Tour about a week ago on the blog? Well, since the announcement, guests have been flocking over for a glimpse of the finished product. This abundance of people quickly left my husband and myself searching for sleek ways to incorporate additional seating, of course keeping with our cool aesthetic.

I came across the perfect solution, INSPIRE Q’s Southport Grey Linen Metal Benches, which are 22-inch wide, meaning I could fit two side by side in my open space directly across from my Barcelona chairs. Aside from matching perfectly with my metal coffee table and grey couch, I also love that they are so light weight that guests can easily move them around the room. Whether that means re-adjusting for a seat closer to the coffee table snacks, or to get a better angle of the TV!

I am so excited that INSPIRE Q has decided to team up with Fashionable Hostess for an exclusive giveaway for my readers so you too can have additional seating in your room!!

The Giveaway Rules are simple: Like Inspire Q on Facebook, Tweet #SouthportBenchGiveaway + #howdoyouIQ on Twitter, Click the Rafflecopter link below to confirm, Then you are entered  to Win 2 INSPIRE Q’s Southport Metal Benches {choice of color – a value of $416.00!!}.

The Perfect Fourth of July Picnic

Fourth of July Family PicnicBambecco Eco Picnic BasketPicnic for 4th of July

For this Fourth of July, what better way to celebrate with your family than filling up a picnic basket with your favorite snacks, grabbing a plush blanket, and heading to the park. Little Reese and I packed up our Bambeco Eco Picnic Basket with Pellegrino, Organic Gruyere Cheese, and Trader Joe’s Bread sticks, so we could spend the afternoon munching and sunning in Madison Square Park. Adorned in 4th of July outfits – me in a Tart Collections maxi maternity dress and her in a Sail to Sable Monkey Business Tunic {of course fulfilling our red, white, and blue color palette}, we had a the perfect mother-daughter afternoon.

Why I did I choose this Bambeco Sustainable Living Picnic Basket Set? The basket is handwoven and made from 100% all-natural and renewable resources. The natural willow basket has a dye and chemical free cotton insulated lining and contains everything you need for an environmentally friendly outdoor meal. It includes two sets of bamboo dinnerware – plates and utensils, two wine glasses made from recycled glass, two organic cotton embroidered napkins, and a bamboo cutting board and cheese knife. The snacks and Pellegrino came from yours truly!
