the best of november

How is it December? I promise it was just summer time and I was anticipating fall. I enjoy this season SO much – & we’ve just had the best month. Without further ado – the best of November.

We hosted our annual Friendsgiving this month – it was a perfect evening. Every single one of our friends were able to attend this year – normally we have one or two that can’t make it, this made me so happy!

I shared my gift guide a couple of weeks ago here , over FIFTY gift ideas you guys, go check them out if you haven’t already .. – & have also been sharing A LOT over on IG stories, here’s a few of my favorite guides so far from the Everygirl. Go check out their site – so many great gifting options!

What I’m loving this month:

Target Bottle Brush Trees – I might have ordered two of each.
Green || Gold || Blush
This knife set from Amazon.

What I read in November:

This book is beautiful & thought provoking. Written as a letter to his mother that she’ll never read, it’s absolutely moving and probably one of my favorites, ever.

We visited our most favorite place ever – Carmel by the Sea for a lovely long weekend. If your into slow and quiet, peaceful little towns nestled along some of the most beautiful coast line ever – go. I really can’t imagine anyone not being in total heaven .. I definitely want to post a weekend travel guide here soon. If your headed that way before I do – make sure to visit Folktale Winery & take the tour if your able to — I recommend the flat bread pizza & house cabernet!

Our living room – all warm & cozy for fall.

Moroccan Pom Pillows || Amaro Pillow Set || Green Lumbar || Couch || Printed Rug || Jute Rug || Coffee Table || Pumpkin || This is Home Book || Wooden Pear

And my favorite quick & easy salad for all the holiday parties coming up – we make this for Thanksgiving & Christmas!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! XOXO.

the best of october

I’m sad to see October go – it means there’s just one month left of fall, (even though this morning I woke up to 10 degree weather here in Utah, it’s feeling more like winter!). I’ve really been soaking up everything this season – & it just feels so good! So here we go – wrapping up October with the best of’s!

Best Amazon find this month:

Linen Tasseled Table Cloth $20.99

We finally finished MOST of what we’d like to refresh in our bedroom – we’re still planning on adding a faux wood beam to our vaulted ceilings sometime this winter. I am so happy with how well it came together! Also, how handsome is little Hank up there?

Bedding, velvet camel colored pillows, bench, throw blanket, rug

.. & the bedroom refresh spilled over to the bathroom. Ooops! So not sad about this.

Mirror, rug, side table, hand towel

We can’t wrap up October without a Halloween entry way view.

Check out my favorite Etsy shop here for that BOO sign & wooden bat garland.

& for your Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving or any holiday dinner party, a round up of some affordable candle holder options to add to your tablescape.

1: Magnolia Wooden Candlesticks

2: IKEA Iron Candlesticks (Set of 3)

3: Target Gold Candlesticks (Set of 3)

Happy, happy October friends!
