Happy November ~ Letter From The Editor

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Happy November, friends! I'm on a pre-vacation high (we leave for Florida tomorrow). Between being incredibly excited to unplug and get away and frantically packing and prepping the house for the sitter, I'm tying up loose ends so that blog content is planned and ready to go while I am away.

It's November! November, people. How did we get here? November is always a very quick and crazy month for us. Every year we head to Florida for almost 2 weeks. That's almost half of the month spent away. Once we return, we are generally thrown into Thanksgiving, and before I know it, the countdown to Christmas has begun. Lesson learned: Don't blink. You just might miss November.

This month, we are talking traveling and Thanksgiving. They are fresh on my mind as we prepare for both. Think travel tips, what to wear, what to pack, and where to go. And for Thanksgiving, I've got some recipes, entertaining tips and tricks, what to wear, and more! At the end of November, we will usher in the gift guides. It's that time of year, folks. It's time to start thinking about gift giving ideas for everyone on your list!

Yes! It's busy, busy, busy around here, but I love the excitement and the fast pace. So, hang on and enjoy the ride.

As you wait patiently for November to unfold, take a look at the top stories from October.

Still wondering what must-have you should add to your wardrobe this fall? Take a look at my top picks.

We are knee deep in football season, and if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Here's how to get properly outfitted for game day festivities.

If you are looking for an easy, lunchtime entertaining idea, I've got the perfect suggestion: soup and a salad.

Bean Boots - The one and only original Bean Boot has been selling out since 1912. There's a good reason. They're a classic that stands the test of time.

I am one of those people who prefers to wear lightweight sweaters in the winter. I don't like the heavy feeling of chunky knits. I just ordered this bubble-stitch sweater which I know I will love.

I'm having a serious skirt moment right now. I'm loving pairing them with booties and my Hunter wellies. This corduroy skirt is super comfortable and the color is spot on. Also ordered this one for days when I'm in a preppy mood.

Get a head start on protecting your lips with a moisturizing balm or stick. Some can be pricey, but this super nourishing lip balm from Sephora is only $8 and works like a charm.
