Friday Favorites – Weekly Inspiration

Welcome to Friday Favorites, a series where we share our favorite decor, design inspiration, fashion finds, TV shows, recipes and more!

Can you believe tomorrow is July 1st?? I feel like the summer is flying by – and it only just started! We’ve really warmed up here this week though so at least it finally feels like summer!

But let’s get to the important news – the winner!! Suzette Bannister is the winner of the $100 gift card. Congratulations to Suzette! And thank you to all of you for your lovely comments! They truly warmed my heart. 🙂

And now, let’s talk Friday Favorites! I’ve got lots of fun things to share this week!




This gorgeous beach home exudes summertime vibes.


One of my absolute favorite stores, Ballard Designs, is having a big sale this weekend! This little marble table – it’s so chic and literally half price, and so versatile too! This beautiful gold mirror also caught my eye because it’s more than 60% off and has stellar reviews! These outdoor rugs are my fave and are more than 55% off. I also love this gorgeous French sideboard which includes free shipping, as does this classic French style mirror. And I just bought this pretty magazine holder for the bathroom for less than half price – love!

Another couple of fab sale finds this week: these gorgeous wood vases are on sale for half off, and these melamine dishes are seriously to-die-for cute – they just scream summer (on sale too)!

And for those of you who are Studio McGee for Target fans like me, they just released a new, smaller collection for July! These baskets are soo good (tray version here) I love this wavy bowl, this pretty gray bowl, and this vase could work anywhere.

Last week’s best sellers: this woven doormat and this gorgeous basket.



There are so many summer sales going on this weekend that I’m sharing just a sampling of my random finds!

If you’re needing summer tops as I am, this Swiss dot top is so pretty (on sale), I love this puffed-sleeve eyelet top, this striped popover (above) is chic and is season-less, and this tunic is lovely and so summery!

And for some reason, I’m totally crushing on summer accessories right now! How adorable are these raffia earrings? (come in 10 colors, too!) Or this pair? I just ordered this pretty bag that’s perfect for summer evenings and events – I love how unique it is.

Ann Taylor has such great shoes right now, and they’re all 40% off! I just ordered this white heeled sandal, I love this cork style wedge and this embroidered slide, and this woven puffy slide is very on-trend! Or you might want to check out this knotted slide that I just bought (on sale for under $50!) I bought it in black and brown, but the gold is lovely, too!

Last week’s best sellers: this cute smocked top and this slip skirt.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I was looking for some new shows and we definitely found some good ones. Though I will say, the two we’ve watched could not be more different! We just finished Beef and loved it~ it’s unusual to say the least, but addicting and so well done.

And now we’ve started A Small Light (it’s also on Disney or National Geographic). We’re only on episode four and I’m hooked. It is so, so good. An astonishing story of courage in the face of evil that is honestly one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.



My son and his girlfriend made these Chipotle Salmon Tacos with Pineapple Salsa (above) and served them with this Mexican Street Corn for us last weekend and both were delicious! Which now has me looking for more fresh and delicious salmon recipes!

This Spicy Chipotle Salmon Bowl looks good, as does this Grilled Salmon with Orzo and Feta.
