a few of my favorite things | November

November!  This month holds a special place in my heart as it does for many of us as we approach Thanksgiving.  It is also the anniversary of when I launched my blog. It will be two years since my first blog post at the end of this month – thank you so much for your support and for getting me to this point. Without you as my loyal and supportive readers, my blog would not mean much, so thank you!

With that, I thought I’d share my favorite things of the moment with you.

A few of my favorite things | POISE.

1 | Fall table scapes are on many of our minds right now with Thanksgiving and holiday events coming up.  Neutral table, linens, dishes and flatware with rich toned succulents is a simple way to create a festive fall table.

2 | This may sound corny but the past few Thanksgivings we’ve been using these cards.  This design from paper source is perfect for my table this year to put at everyone’s place.   They are great for your family and friends to share what they are thankful for as you sit down for Thanksgiving dinner or even to talk about over dessert.  The first time we tried it, I learned about things that my parents appreciated that I never realized – it was touching.  I highly recommend integrating this into your turkey day, even if your guests make fun of you for it at first sight {you can blame it on me ;)}

3 | Last year I searched for the perfect gold flatware to add to my Thanksgiving table, this year I had to add 2 place settings to what I had, I love this style made in Portugal they have a simplicity that sets them apart from most flatware sets I’ve seen.

4 | Ilia lipsticks made with castor seed oil, sesame and jojoba oil and sans toxins are my new favorite lipsticks because they are safe, long-lasting and hydrating in addition to having beautiful colors.  This color {linger} appears to be more of a copper on-line but is more of a brown shade with a slight shimmer in real life which is perfect for fall/winter.  I love to wear it both day and night with rich fall tones.

5 | This bootie!  {by Prada} is SOOOO elegant on.  I tried it on yesterday and fell in love with it – the color, the last, the heel height – it’s as close to perfect as I think I will find for a bootie.

Cheers to a happy November!  Wishing you a month filled with things to be grateful for,
