It’s that time again! The allure of a relaxing Friday evening is so close we can almost taste it. This weekend is all about catching up on sleep and/or a new series on Netflix. (Any we should be checking out? Leave us a comment!) Now, while we had a very busy week around these parts, we also found a few great stories from our friends. Check ’em out: 

— We can always count on Victoria (AKA sfgirlbybay) to introduce us to the coolest new shops. We were excited to discover a very cool Australian shop on her blog this week, though our wallets are less thrilled. 

— Want to host a kids’ birthday party that the adults will love as well? Heather Taylor has a few tips.

— One of our favorite Kansas City shops, Coveted Home, is hosting a pop-up with Interior Define! They’ll have drinks, bites, and $500 in giveaways at the opening event on Thursday, August 9 from 5-7pm.

— Turns out, dream jobs DO exist! Vidanta is hiring, and the job includes a $120,000 salary to spend a year vacationing in some of Mexico’s most beautiful destinations. (No joke.) You can apply here.

— Okay Stella & Dot… these are the coolest earrings we’ve ever seen. With endless mix & match opportunities, one pair can give you a different look for every day of the week (or month)! 

— In the never-ending quest to make healthy choices, we often find ourselves wondering how to eat like a nutritionist… now we know! 3 top nutritionists share what they eat each and every day. 

— Any SATC fans out there? You’ll love this article about the iconic interiors on the show.
