Friday Faves {July 10, 2015}

This week was a long one after a holiday weekend, but Friday is finally here! Lots of sunshine is in the forecast here, so I’m looking forward to a few good beach days. Here are my Friday Faves to kick it off…

  •  Stylish sandals that don’t hurt. I need to get my hands on these. I’ve had my eyes on gold Birkenstocks for a while now and I’m pretty impressed that comfort-first brand Dr. Scholl’s has equally as on-trend options too (here and here). {via bustle.com}
  • Cold brew coffee. This black coffee addict loves everything about this. And now it’s at Starbucks. As in one block from my office, which is either a really good or bad problem… you decide. {via eonline.com}
  • Nordstrom sale + my favorite lip stain. I’m sure you’ve heard that the Nordstrom sale is on for cardholders and it will soon open up to everyone 7/17. I couldn’t resist buying this set of my favorite lip stain. I wore it on my wedding day and have pretty much every day since in about a million different colors. Grab this – it’s such a deal, you are basically getting one free (they’re not cheap on the reg). I also love everything Kendra Scott and this bracelet goes perfectly with my everyday bangles (I’m an Aquarius, so amethyst everything). More sale finds coming soon… {nordstrom.com}
  • Make your house look guest-ready. Without spending hours cleaning, that’s the key. I’m certainly not a neat freak. In fact, my husband calls me a slob. I’m organized in my own ways, like at work, and I do like a clean kitchen, but when it comes to putting away laundry… not so much. This post has a quick list of ways to make your house look put together if you happen to have a last-minute guest coming over. {via apartmenttherapy.com}

Friday Faves {March 27, 2015}

Friday Favorites on DailyKaty.com

1. Target collabs. For a while I felt like there were so many Target collaborations going on that I stopped paying attention to them, but the upcoming Lilly Pulitzer and  Of a Kind shops caught my attention. Just when I thought I had officially outgrown the Lilly trend, they come out with pieces like this perfect pink and white chevron bikini and I’m sold. {popsugar.com & refinery29.com}

2. Celeb lifestyle sites. It can’t be a coincidence that so many of my fav celebs – Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Lively, Lauren Conrad and now Reese Witherspoon –  all launched lifestyle websites. LC’s has been one of my favorites for a while (this may or may not be an indirect result of my Laguna Beach and Hills obsession) and now I’m pretty excited to see what’s to come on Reese’s new Draper James site, which sounds like it will be more of a shopping experience than editorial. {brit.co}

3. Life tips: how to remove any stain. Real Simple created an infographic that tells you exactly how to get any stain imaginable out – coffee, wine, salad dressing, lipstick, paint and more. I learned from my mother-in-law that Lestoil is one of the best stain removers out there, but I’m no expert, so this will come in handy for sure. {realsimple.com}

4. A Jell-O shot machine. For real. It’s called Jevo and it’s apparently an “automated shot maker that can crank out 20 of your beloved Jell-O shots with the push of a button.” We could have used that in college… or now. {elitedaily.com}
