I don’t know about you, but I’m so happy for the weekend! I’m looking forward to spending a day in wine country, celebrating my mom’s birthday, and hopefully just relaxing!
If you’re anything like me, by Friday I’m just trying to wrap up my week so that I can enjoy my weekend. It’s definitely not the time I’m looking to absorb any new information. For that reason, I am starting a new Friday series featuring some of my favorite things I’ve found during the week. Hope you enjoy these as much as I do, and have a great weekend!
favorite DIY: I love the Marni jeweled leather sandals, but the nearly $500 price tag is way too much for me. This Marni Jeweled Leather Sandal DIY is so simple and soooo much less expensive that I’m keeping my eyes open for the perfect sandal to make my own! (via Stripes & Sequins)
favorite fashion find: These high heel protectors are a very clever way to walk over cobblestone (or any other rough surface) in stilettos without tripping and keeping your beautiful heels intact. (via Nordstrom)
favorite recipe: I’ve always loved roasted chicken but have been too intimidated to make my own and always avoid the grocery store ready made versions (who knows what those are made with!) I stumbled upon this Simply Roast Chicken and it sounds so good (and totally doable) that I will be trying it next week! I love new recipes. (via Summer Tomato)
favorite chocolate chip cookies: As much as I like baking, I would say that cookies are generally not my area of expertise. In celebration of National Cookie Day, I decided to test out America’s Test Kitchen’s recipe for gluten-free chocolate chip cookies and they were a big hit in the office! (pic via Instagram)
