Happy Friday from freezing Charleston! Well, at least freezing for down here lol. I’m spending the day cozy inside filming 2 upcoming videos and preparing for Thanksgiving next week! The excitement of the holidays is definitely here and I couldn’t be happier about it. This weekend I’ll be filming another video or 2 (I like to film far in advance of my scheduled posting day because I like to plan and prepare my videos and give myself plenty of time to refilm anything if necessary. Other than that, I’m excited to play around with the new goodies I received from the Sephora VIB Sale - nothing crazy, just a few things I know I love and use and a few I’ve been wanting to try. Also, I can’t wait to get outside and enjoy this gorgeous weather after almost a week of rain and clouds. I know Maddie can’t wait to go back to the dog park either. In the meantime, here are a few of the things that have caught my attention this week.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS | First and foremost I want to thank you for leaving such encouraging and wonderful comments on my videos and here on my posts. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to reply in a timely manner since most of my days are fully occupied filming and teaching myself how to do more sophisticated video editing, but I want you to know that I read almost every comment and am hoping to catch up next week when I have some downtime over Thanksgiving. Until then though, I want you to know how much I love hearing from you and that every time I receive a thoughtful, encouraging comment it keeps me motivated and inspired.

HOLIDAY TABLES 2 WAYS | You know how much I love Jennifer of the Daily Connoisseur and her recent video about repurposing the same plates, cutlery and floral arrangements for Thanksgiving and Christmas is wonderful and so useful!

GRANA LAUNCHES COATS | This week Grana launched coats and they’re so cute! They feature a cocoon shade and are double-breasted for some visual interest and comes in black and camel.

EVERLANE COCOON COAT | Speaking of coats, Everlane re-released their cocoon coats this week and they’re also so cute! I’ve heard great things about them and love that they come in a variety of colors - including some vibrant shades to liven up your fall/winter wardrobe.

MILLENNIALS TREATING PETS LIKE FIRST BORN | As an animal lover, millennial and pet owner, this article came as no surprise. Jason and I go out of our way to buy the best quality, most natural, holistic food we can find for our cats and Maddie - even if that comes with a high price tag. Hearing that we’re not alone and this has caused a hit to other well-known brands isn’t too surprising.

A BEAUTIFUL, COLORFUL MONOCHROMATIC LOOK | On the heels of Wednesday’s video all about creating a capsule without black, the last outfit in this YouTube video is a wonderful example of a colorful look worn head-to-toe that not only looks incredible, but also has the same effect as wearing all black from head-to-toe without the dark color.
