Friday Finds

It’s been quite awhile since my last Friday Finds post, but I’m back with some randomness.  Friday Finds are things that caught my eye during the week, that I thought others would find interesting too!

Strawberry Roses by Ash and Craft

Strawberry Roses by Ash and Crafts

This tutorial by Ash and Crafts on how to make Strawberry Roses is so well done, I think I can even do it!  How beautiful would these be on a cake?  Full tutorial via the link under the photo.

Pin Earrings

Idea via TJ Maxx

I love this idea of using post earrings as accents for your button down shirts.  The idea originated on TJ Maxx’s website, but doesn’t really require any explanation, just pin a pair of posts to your collar.  Easy and different!

Make Grocery Store Flowers Amazing

Make Grocery Store Flowers Look Amazing

It’s so hard to resist those grocery store bunches of flowers, but when you get them home, it can be hard to make them look decent.  This post talks about using a tape grid to help you arrange them and make them look amazing.  It’s super easy once you learn the tape trick! I promise.

How to Tie a Barrel Knot

I love Sperry boat shoes and tend to wear them all the time.  This diagram from Sperry shoes you how to tie a barrel tassel knot, so you can just slip your shoes on without having to tie them.  Key to their appeal!   You can also use this little trick to barrel knot your LLBean duck boots.

Kate Spade Hula Girl Key Chain

Kate Spade Hula Girl Key Chain

I am so in love with this Hula Girl key chain, but the price tag prohibits me from justifying buying it.  I will however be watching for sales!  PS, the phone case is super cute too!

Have you discovered anything that struck your fancy this week? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!


It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about some things I’m obsessed with on the blog.  I’m rectifying that today!  I have a couple things I’m crazy about I want to share with you!

Dog Birthday Cake Hat

Birthday Cake Hat

It’s my puppy’s first birthday next month and it’s going to be epic! I bought this birthday cake hat for him from Etsy seller Eternal Light Shop.  She literally shipped it overnight and it looks exactly like the photo.  My devil dog immediately tried to destroy it, so we are going to need to be quick with the photo opportunities on his birthday!

Glitter Bomb Phone CaseGlitter Bomb iPhone Case

The photo does not do this Glitter Bomb iPhone Case justice.  The glitter floats around in liquid inside the case and is super gold and glittery.  People ask me everyday where I got it.  It’s also fun to play with while bored waiting in line 🙂 Love it!

My cup size is Stanley

Stanley Cup Tee

The Pittsburgh Penguins are on the road to the Stanley Cup and this shirt from Etsy seller Blue Frog Tees cracks me up.

Pineapple Nails

I am in love with my Pineapple nail art from Jessica at Dallas Beauty Lounge.  She was able to combine a couple ideas I had into this.  Super cute!

See my review of Dallas Beauty Lounge here.

It’s been awhile since I’ve featured a Friday Finds post and I have some great stuff to share!  For those of you who are new to the blog, Friday Finds are the things that have caught my eye over the past week via the internet.  I try to post them once a week, mainly to justify my Pinterest obsession!  If you want to see how bad that obsession is, check out my boards here!

Eloquii Capelet Jacket


I’ve been stalking my mailbox waiting for this black capelet jacket to arrive and it finally did!  It’s even better in person.  Well made and fits beautifully!  I got mine from Eloquii, for 50% off.  They frequently have great pop up sales and I try to always post them on the blog Facebook page.  If you aren’t following me on FB yet, like my page here, so you don’t miss out.

What are you obsessed with this week? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!

Friday Finds

Hope you have some exciting plans for your long weekend!  I am purging my closet this weekend, it’s definitely time and I know in the end, it will make it so much easier to get ready in the morning, but it certainly is painful in the midst of doing it!  Some of it is going to the consignment store and the rest will be donated.  Once I’ve gone through it, I have to have it out of the house to prevent my going back into the pile.

I turned to Etsy for my Friday finds this week and as usual, I found a ridiculous amount of great stuff there.  I am always amazed at the product sold on Etsy.  Such creative and talented people out there.

Friday Finds from



Etsy seller Laonato has several different cityscapes to choose from, my fave being Paris.  These necklaces would make great gifts or as a reminder of a great vacation.


Speaking of reminders of a great vacation, this shell ring from Etsy seller Kaleimaeole certainly fits the bill.  How could you not think of the beach when wearing it?


When my dog passed away last year, I searched everywhere for a piece of jewelry to serve as a tribute.  I found Lulubug Jewelry on Etsy and couldn’t believe the detail on this necklace.  It really looked exactly like my dog.  I ordered it and a name plate to go with it and couldn’t have been more thrilled.  It is teeny, tiny, but the quality and detail is amazing.  I can’t recommend this seller more.  Lulubug Jewelry has every kind of dog, plus pretty much every animal you can think of and a few other symbols.  Perfect gifts for an animal lover in your life.


I have been following Elina Linardaki on Instagram after finding her shop on Etsy this summer.  I love the boho feel of her handmade sandals.  They are gorgeous.  Check her shop out here.


I love the look of raw crystals and these necklaces are super cool.  Everyone is slightly different making it a one of a kind piece.  Vermeer Jewellery’s shop can be found here.

What are your plans for the weekend? Hopefully more exciting than mine!  I’d love to hear about them in the comments!

Friday Finds

Friday Finds from SaltyBlonde.comHope you had a great week!  Mine was long, long, long!  I am super glad it is finally Friday.  I didn’t have a ton of time to surf the web this week, but I found some really cute stuff in the limited time I had.  Let’s get to the good stuff.

Friday Finds from SaltyBlonde.comManBunsofDisneyLand:  This Instagram account is genius!  They are candid photos posted by people at Disneyland who spot manbuns in the wild!  Love it! Definitely recommend adding this one to your account!

Custom Embroidery Pillow

I found these bohemian embroidered name pillows on Etsy from seller YelliKelli.  They would make a really cute gift for pretty much any age.  You aren’t just limited to first names either, she will do last names, words, etc.

I about died from the cuteness of this Kate Spade Toddler Trench coat, gah! I love grown up clothes for tiny tots and this one takes the cake!  Can be found on

I like this idea of bringing your vacation photo to life with some beach souvenirs from your trip.  Looks pretty easy and would be a nice reminder on your desk at work about why you work!  Find the tutorial here.



Friday Finds

Hey Kids!

It’s time for Friday Finds, everything I found on the internet this week that captured my attention!  I wasn’t able to spend as much time on the web this week as usual, but I still found some great stuff.  Let’s get right to the good stuff, shall we?

Salty Blonde's Friday Finds


One:  How refreshing do these summer ice cubes look?  I found them on Belle-Melange.  The blog is in German (I think) but the photos are pretty self explanatory.  Similar ice cube trays can be found on Amazon via the link below(affiliate link).

4 Ice Tube Making Trays for Water Bottles – 2pc Sets

Salty Blonde's Friday Finds: Plush Gallbladder

Two:  I know I would have loved to get this plush gallbladder when I had mine removed.  Buy it for a friend here!

Salty Blonde's Friday Finds : Fluffy Top Knot

Three:  I was so excited to find this you tube tutorial for a fluffy top knot when you don’t have long hair.  Ever since I cut my hair into a lob, I haven’t been able to do a proper top knot without using extensions.  This method works and I have been wearing my hair this way on really hot days!  Tutorial here.

Salty Blonde's Friday Finds:Louboutin Lipstick

Four:  Have you see the new Louboutin lipstick?  The packaging is amazing, but at $90 per, it’s a little steep.  I’m sure it’s not going to stop anyone from buying them out when they go on sale at Saks in September.

Salty Blonde's Friday Finds: Bearcat Tonkey

Five:  Move over Tuna, there’s a new dog in town!  My newest Instagram obsession is Bearcoat Tonkey, the dog that doesn’t know if she’s a dog or a teddy bear!  This Shar Pei is just about the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen!
