Kristy’s Friday Favorites

Hi friends! Happy Friday..

I am so ready to begin celebrating this long weekend with all our friends and family!  It’s supposed to be over 112 degrees in the Bay Area this next few days.. We are preparing for a scorcher!
This Friday Favorites is jam packed with many things that I love to help bring special occasions together.  Whether it be a fun recipe, a favorite addition to a tablescape or even a quick and easy hair tutorial… all contribute to making me feel excited and happy for gatherings with those I love.

Another special part to this Friday – I am hosting a $200 Homegoods Gift Card GIVEAWAY!  Yay!
You know how much I love Homegoods.  It’s been one of my favorite go-to home decor stores for years and with the holidays just around the corner, a gift card can really help raise the stakes with decorating or gift giving.  See below for details.

Please make sure to let me know if you try the hair tutorial or recipe… I love hearing back from all of you.  Have a great weekend and stay cool for me!

Favorite: Kitchen Decor Item 

Outside of the obvious favorite home decor items in a kitchen..
fresh flowers in a vase or fruit filling a bowl, I like to have one special statement piece.
With my new kitchen painted all white, it was important for me to find a unique, non-kitchen type of item that is different from everything else in the space.
I knew immediately what I needed the moment I stumbled upon it… a large white ginger jar.
I wanted elegance without distraction and the large white ginger jar gave me exactly that.  The jar I found has a curved shape with tiny cutouts that allows candlelight to flicker through during the nighttime. I love how romantic and delicate it looks. Best part? My ginger jar wasn’t expensive and it’s the one thing that everyone compliments in all my photos of the kitchen.
I don’t think I will ever tire of it..

Favorite: $200 Homegoods Giveaway 

Homegoods is one of my favorite go-to spots for everything home related. I love this store! In fact, I decorated my daughter’s new bedroom with many special items from Homegoods. From the bedding and throw pillows to her new side table, everything looks beautiful.
With Fall right around the corner, Homegoods is full of everything Autumn related.. I thought what better way to help one of you prepare for the season than to offer a a $200 gift card?  So fun!
*This is a sponsored Giveaway

Favorite: Entertaining Appetizer

Whenever I’m entertaining or having friends over, I love to make something that looks complicated, yet isn’t. Cooking isn’t exactly my fortei, that’s more of Jeff’s scene (click here to read his latest recipe).. but making quick and easy appetizers? I’m all over it!  That’s why I love everything about these Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches posted by The Girl on Bloor blog. All that’s needed is aged cheddar cheese, sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms, arugula and a baguette! It only takes 30 minutes including prep and cook time. Just my thing… Enjoy!

Favorite: Quick Styling Hairdos 

Amber Fillerup Clark, aka the creator of the Barefoot Blonde blog, has some of the best hair on Instagram. She has so many amazing tutorials with braids, easy hairstyles, up-dos and more. She’s gorgeous, and her family is adorable. The post I’m highlighting today is her three easy hairstyles that can be done in 3 minutes each! The first is a fun is a low ponytail braid, the second style is a fun half up-half down braided style, and the third is an easy bun with a piece of hair wrapped around the hair tie. All 3 are perfect for that “lazy hair day”. Enjoy!

  22. Hi Kristy! What a great Friday morning blog! Thank you for all the great tips:) My daughter & I LOVE HomeGoods

  23. You are such a breath of fresh air and love your beautiful kitchen! Can’t wait to do some Homegoods shopping for my new house ?

  24. Hi Kristy! I’m so excited that you’re hosting a Homegoods giveaway. It’s my favorite place to shop but I’m currently broke from moving from San Francisco to Philadelphia! We had a low budget for some new furniture in the new place and have no room left for any decor or pieces beyond the basics (bed, couch, kitchen table and chairs). Thanks for hosting and give San Francisco a hug from me, I miss it so much already! <3

  25. Hi Kristy!

    I love your blog and instagram stories. I am so excited about the homegoods giveaway! I live near the newly opened home sense store in MA and it is ?!

  26. Kristy, I recently found you through Jillian. I thoroughly enjoy your home decor style and cheery personality. Thank you!

  29. Kristi
    I love your kitchen so much! I have to say though that your Instagram stories give me life! I look forward to them everyday! I dream of winning because Homegoods is my happy place! Thanks!

  30. Ijust want to say how much I love your blog and Insta stories. You make everyone feel like they can decorate! Also, I’m not home goods obsessed:)

  31. Kristy,
    Your kitchen is just stunning. Homegoods is the best! We just had one open up here in Monterey. We just completed a bathroom remodel and I found the best mirrors there. I love to find items inspired by more expensive stores like RH and Pottery Barn at places like homegoods or Target.

    Stay cool this weekend,

  32. Thank you so much for the daily inspiration. I always look forward to seeing your Insta-stories and posts. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs for Jeff and Maggie.

  33. I love following your Instagram Stories. It just shows me how you have to try different things before finding the right look for a room!

  34. Kristy-
    I love all your stories about your beautiful family and your adventures with decorating/ re-decorating your home ;) I show my hubby your house re-arrangements to let him know I’m not the only one! Ha! I am so happy you partnered up with Homegoods! What an exciting give-away! Especially since we just bought our first home and can’t wait to fill it with memories and unique treasures that can only really be found at Homegoods. Hope you have an amazing Labor Day weekend!!


  35. Kristy, I don’t know where to begin. Your blog is extremely detailed, helpful and informational. Thank you so much for sharing your tips, tricks and decor ideas. I am loving every details from the smallest to the biggest of ideas. I am so excited for your Homegoods giveaway because I not only shop at Homegoods I tend go there just to look around. True story, I go there so often that in my spare time the first thing my boyfriend would now ask me, “Do you want to go to Homegoods just to look around?” Knowing very well “looking around” turns into finding something and anything to take home. When I see something that just calls out to me- I can’t help but get it because I know very well that if I do decide to go back for it the item will be forever gone. Seriously, is it just me or do you get this feeling as well? I’m looking forward to your next post and projects.

  36. I just relocated for work and would love to get some goodies for my new home at home goods. I think Maggie is your best accessory (sorry Home Goods).

  37. Love your posts! HomeGoods is also one of my favorite stores. Thank you for sharing your life with us .❤️

  38. Love all your posts. I’m around Emma’s age and love how easy you and your husband make home makeovers seem! We’re in the begging of building a home and you are great inspiration!

  39. Ooh, your trip sounds fabulous! Your kitchen is gorgeous too. We just moved, and I would be thrilled beyond belief to win a Homegoods gift card. Thanks!

  40. Love your style, your insta stories and Maggie! Your home in gorgeous but love how relaxed you guys are. I always look forward to your posts.

  41. You have a beautiful home and family! I love your cheery outlook on life! I look forward to your posts everyday!

  42. I LOVE following you Kristy! You are just so fun, so sweet, and you share the best content. Haha, you have me hooked now…I can’t go to bed at night until I’ve checked your IG stories and post. Thanks for being a beautiful light on the internet..the world needs more beautiful people like you! Just wanted you to know how amazing you are!

  128. Absolutely love your gorgeous home and have been following your IG page for awhile, thanks so much for the inspiration! @vanfleetfamfarmhouse

  129. Kristy! I absolutely love following your blog and Instagram page and seeing all that you accomplish! I’m not very skilled in the interior design department so I always look to your posts for inspiration! My boyfriend and I recently moved in together and we could definitely use a gift card to HomeGoods to spruce the place up a bit!

    Hope you, Emma, my mom and I can all connect at some point :)

  130. Hi Kristy,
    I love your insta stories, your insta pics, your blogs, and now that you’ve added Emma, and your friend Cathy I really like the added players with great sense of style as well!
    I have all sorts of inspiration for decorating my first place that I’m moving into in a few weeks.
    When I first saw that Emma was moving out and going to decorate her first place I’ve been so excited to see her faves on Monday’s, and her findings for her place as she settles in.
    I wish I was going through this process with my mom as well, as she loved to decorate too, but unfortunately she is no longer with me.
    You and Emma remind me of when my mom, and I used to go to zgallery, pier one, Crate and Barrel, and all of the decorating stores to decorate our house.
    Love your style, and how you change up your decor with the last house and now this new house. You don’t know the positive impact that you have on followers, and for that I thank you!
    Thanks for sharing your great sense of style and showing a little piece of your day to day inspirations.

    Thank you!

  131. I’ve loved watching how you transitioned from one home to the next with your signature pieces! Home Goods is such a great place to find new touches!!!

  132. I love your blog and Instagram! Your home is gorgeous and you and Jeff are precious! Your account is definitely one of my favorites and I always look forward to your stories. You’re just so genuine and fun. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway! I love to decorate but with two girls with quite a few medical issues, my fun budget has dwindled. Homegoods is great to help stretch that when I am able to squeeze a little bit of shopping in.

  133. Fingers crossed on HomeGoods giveaway !!!! I am looking for the rug Emma got for her living room ….!!!! Stay cool :)

  134. Newish follower of a few months (came over from Jillian Harris when you were having the area rug issue! Lol and did you order a sectional? I think I missed a few stories on IG bc you referenced it when you shared your new pillows! :)
    I’m excited to see who receives the HG gift card! Would be such a gift to receive around the holidays!

  183. Hi Kristy !
    I just adore your style and how you and your husband interact . Your relationship is so special but I’m sure you both know that .
    Home goods is my all time favorite for everything and anything ! I’m suffering right now with empty nest syndrome and will be downsizing soon . As sad as I am that they’ve all grown up and flown away I couldn’t be more proud of the kind human beings they are .
    So now I can rediscover ‘me’ and decorate my new place with all white ! Hooray !! I have some things I could never part with but cmon we never stop needing that something special that home goods always brings
    Have a great trip !

Your kitchen makes me look forward to the day when perhaps I can finally own my own place and make my dream kitchen… the fact that all of your “cabinets” are drawers has really stuck with me & will be what I use (I really hate having to dig into the back of cabinets… why would anyone chose them over drawers?

I also adore the posts about your lovely family (especially sweet Maggie), and your conversations with Jeff always put a smile on my face. Fun fact: my boyfriend is also named Jeff, so I feel like I can kind of relate because he does all of the engineering things around the house too (I swear he’s always putting up picture frames for me) ?
    Hope you, Jeff, Emma, and Maggie have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!!
