Hello! 


It's official - Happy Holidays! 💚

I'm going to keep this intro short and sweet because I'm feeling so rested and relaxed on this 4 day weekend. Our Thanksgiving was full of delicious foods and lots of relaxation. Ahhh 😊

I hope your Thanksgiving was just as full of rest and that you're enjoy leftovers as much as we are!

While I start to daydream about my birthday next week, let's jump into last week's recap...

What I Bought

Late November is my favorite time of year to order our holiday cards. This gives me plenty of time to write and mail them and take advantage of early discounts! My go-to place is Shutterfly. 

Honestly? I can't even tell you why I choose them lol. I've just used Shutterfly for so many years, I enjoy the quality of their cards, and they did a beautiful job with our wedding invitations. So I'll continue to give them my brand loyalty because, truly, I have no complaints!

I don't want to spoil the choice of card we made but I can tell you that it's not this or this one, even though they were in the running!

 I also took advantage of EC's early Black Friday sale and scooped up my 2021 weekly LifePlanner for 30% off. Woot woot for getting my all-time favorite planner at a discount! Here's my direct referral link if you're interested in checking it out. (And if you want to go down a deep planner rabbit hole, check out my planner Instagram account here!)

Last, I finally got far enough into the preview of this book that I decided to buy it. More on that below!

Last Week's Buys - Yay or Nay?

I have nothing but good things to say about last week's purchases!

This brow pencil is even better when it's new and fresh out of the box. I cannot wait to start painting with these new holiday polishes: 
 thisthisthis, and this from Zoya and thisthisthis, and this from OPI

I haven't used this yet but I'm just as pumped as I was last week about it.

These are just such a beautiful addition to our holiday decor. 

Shopping wins all around!

Weekly Seasonal Celebrations

The last burm of my Thanksgiving candle ✔️

Weekly wear my November lip shade, Dark Red ✔️
(This is my new favorite dark red shade. It's stunning and so comfortable.)

Listen to my Thanksgiving Playlist ✔️

Paint a weekly, seasonal mani ✔️

GERD awareness Week - Nov. 17th - Nov 23rd ✔️
(There's nothing to be ashamed of if you also suffer from GERD like I do!)

Enjoy the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival - Nov. 22nd✔️
(We enjoyed the televised celebration in light of COVID)

Reading Right Now

I finally decided to read a bit more of this

I'm still not very far into it but I like the female lead characters, and usually enjoy stories that are told from 3 or 4 different perspectives and/or locations. It's got all the makings of a cozy and interesting cozy-up-and-dive-in kind of a read. So I'm pretty excited for it! 

Watching Right Now

It's a shame but I had to stop watching  Fargo. It's such a difficult decision for me. The acting is absolutely incredible! The story is so freakin' interesting. My challenge? All of the suspense! 

The amount of anxiety that this show creates for me is just too much to handle. Life is stressful enough - I don't do well creating more stress in my free-time lol. So sadly, B will have to continue watching that one alone. 

Instead, I'm deep into my junk-food TV with the newest seasons of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Southern Charm, RHOSLC, and Total Bellas. I will take all 4 - please and thank you!

Listening to Right Now

It's time for my Master Christmas Playlist - jam packed with over 700  Christmas songs that are old, new, and everything in between. Woot woot!

Enjoying Right Now

The home buying process! Okay, maybe I'm not enjoying the process so to speak. (So. Many. Documents!) 

But I am enjoying that we're getting close and closer to being home owners! If you missed it, read more about our journey here.

Thanks for stopping by today 😀
