The Bloom Workshop California

The Bloom Workshop // Northern California 2015The Bloom Workshop discount code

Do you remember my Michaela who interned for me a few years ago? Her grandmother always told her to dream big and dream she did. Last year, Michaela and her friend Ashley launched The Bloom Workshop. And not surprisingly it’s been a huge success! The hands-on workshop was designed for creative women who are eager to learn about blogging, social media, photography, interior design and styling. Our goal is to share our knowledge on how each of these topics work together to help take blogs or businesses to the next level. Bloom’s mission is to help fuel women’s creative passions, establish authentic community, and help each attendee feel confident in their small business or blog. With special sessions on the specifics of blogging, social media best practices, design, styling and photography, a styled photo shoot to practice the skills guests just learned, and a Q&A session with a panel of experts this is a great opportunity for all eager to learn, network and hone creative skills.

Best Home Blogs & Lamps Plus $500 Shopping Spree

Robert Abbey Delta Lily Table Lamp - LampsPlus

If you received a $500 shopping spree at Lamps Plus, what would you buy? I’d purchase a pair of Robert Abbey’s Delta Lily table lamps (although haven’t decided on a color yet!). I love the clean, contemporary base which comes in a variety of colors. I think a pair would look great flanking a bed, sofa or console table.

Goodbye Google Reader & Hello Bloglovin’

chinoiserie office - Lonny
In case you haven’t heard, Google Reader’s is shutting down tomorrow, July 1st. So, what does this mean? If you use Google Reader to follow your favorite blogs (and assuming want to continue following) you will want to import those  feeds into another reader asap.If you are still in need of a new feed reader, there are two I would recommend — Bloglovin’ and Feedly. Both provide a one-click migration from Google Reader. It’s really that easy. As for which one I like best, I’m going to be using Bloglovin’. It’s super easy to use and I prefer the user interface.And if you are not already following Simplified Bee and would like to, here are links to both recommended readers:

Thanks for following the bee!

Rising After You Fall

rising after the fall // life quoteThis quote kinda sums it up for me this week. Like you, Boston’s (our nation’s) tragedy weighs heavy on my heart. I can’t imagine the pain, heartache and sorrow those families are going through. How far can a person fall? I don’t know. But, I do know that with God’s grace we can all rise( albeit sometimes slowly) again.

On a different note, yesterday my blog moved from one server to another. Unfortunately, some images didn’t make the move. So if you missed seeing the images in post about fern patterns in interior design, it’s up and running again!

I also what to extend a giant hug to all you fabulous readers who have supported this blog for so long. I’m thrilled to announce that Simplified Bee made it into the top ten at Circle of Moms top mom design bloggers for 2013. Many thanks for all your votes and support!
