Easy Quinoa Salad

I have a new obsession with Quinoa [KEEN-wah]. Not only is it fun to say it is also really delicious and versatile.  This little grain-like super food is the perfect addition to any meal and an easy fix for a quick lunch or dinner.  My first attempt at quinoa was a simple veggie salad. I chopped up a cucumber, tomato, and yellow bell pepper and and sprinkled on some feta cheese, It was magical.  Check out the recipe below.

A Little Gold Goes a Long Way – Home Edition

I have been a little busy lately. I recently started a new job and my school schedule has been insane. Needless to say, I have had no time to blog.  And as a result, my little space in the digital world has suffered.

Thankfully, I received an email asking if I would accept a guest blog post.  It was like the blog fairy (no relation to the Tooth Fairy) knew I needed help.  I graciously accepted and you can read the post below.

Thank you, Mari for sending this over.  Enjoy! xoxo
Hello, all! How exciting to be here with you at The Undomestic Bride today with a guest post from Arcadian Home. It’s a wonderful place to find lots of interior design inspiration including great decorating ideas for everything from fabulous contemporary floor lamps to colorful decorative pillows and much more.

While exploring The Undomestic Bride, I ran across a post entitled “A Little Gold Goes a Long Way” with a mood board for a pink and gold bridal shower. That gave me the inspiration for this guest post.

Today, we’re going to tour eight spaces that show how a touch or two or ten of gold can’t bring life to rooms of all sorts. As you’ll see, gold works well with many color palettes, pink and far beyond. Please enjoy!

Thanks for letting me stop by to share.

Bits of Gold

Big art, just a touch of leopard and a lovely gray palette, what more could a girl ask for? Perhaps a bit of gold here and there—on the ornate torchiere lamps, coffee table and stool legs.

A golden sunburst mirror is a glamorous touch of gold in this sedate green living room. It has such an elegant yet comfortable feel.

Gold accents are especially beautiful in black and white interiors. The gold base on the round tulip style table is an unexpected but lively touch.

Bits of gold around this feminine bath—brass drum table, cage pendant light and vanity chair, all add their own special look.

This white bedroom goes for the gold, with one papered wall. I really like the frilly look of the golden branches in the wallpaper. A modern pendant light adds another element of gold to the room.

One single touch of gold, a tiny pendant light over the farmhouse sink, goes a long way in this pretty and functional kitchen.

Antiqued gold finishes on the tall table lamp, nesting tables and étagère add restrained glamour to this sophisticated living room.

A delicate brass and glass coffee table and ornate candle sticks give their golden look to this pretty living room, while a contemporary frameless painting adds vibrant color. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
