Happy Friday!

We’re less than one week away from Thanksgiving and I’m starting to get into the holiday spirit. With that being said, are you all interested in seeing some curated gift guides or are you over them? If you are interested, what kind do you want to see? Gifts for him? for the children? for your girlfriends that are hard to shop for? I’m a bit torn on whether it’s even worth my time and effort, but if you’re into them, so am I! Here are some things I’m clicking on:

I love an over-the-knee boot for the fall/winter. Here’s a more budget-friendly style very similar to my favorite Stuart Weitzman’s.

Another great gift idea for the wine enthusiast. Hmm… Keith, if you’re reading, please add this to my list.

Sharing ten random things about me.

Dreaming of a tropical getaway already? This place is #1 on my list.

Gothamista’s recent video demonstrates that great hair begins with scalp care & the products you use are no exception.

If you follow me on instastories, you’ve probably seen me make this Black Bean Sweet Potato chili recipe quite a lot. It is so simple, healthy, hearty and provides plenty of leftovers.

It’s never too early to start brainstorming those New Year’s Resolutions.

Have the best weekend!

    I totally cannot believe that Thanksgiving is next week. This month, shoot this year just blew on by!! I’m excited to celebrate with my family!! So much to be thankful for this year. Black Bean Sweet Potato chill, wow that sounds good. Might have to try it out. I’ve decided not to do resolutions but instead just be intentional about upping the ante in every aspect of my life. What are some of yours?

  • Rebekah

    Love this look! Re: gift lists, would love any reasonably priced stocking stuffer ideas you have for men! Hardest part for me is finding cool/interesting things for his stocking.

  • Is

    Love this look!! Do you know of any similar in colour and style heels that are a bit lower? The Sam Edelman ones you linked a few weeks back are gorgeous but still a bit high

  • Amy

    I always love curated guides! Particularly the guys ones since they can be so hard to buy for! If it’s a ton of work though, that makes sense

  • Rubi

    Love your style babe! The grey denim with camel coat goes so well!
