9 Things I Loved in November

I’m currently writing this from the couch with the Christmas tree lights on and Gilmore Girls streaming in the background. So, I guess you could say that my December is off to a great start. 🙂 And on that note, like monthly clockwork it’s time to look back on the 9 things I loved in November.

9 Things I Loved in November

My parents visited this past weekend, and we took them to Nutcracker in the Castle. We hadn’t been in a couple years, and I forgot how magical it is!


I’ve used Chatbooks in the past for photo books, so I was thrilled to see them introduce holiday cards this year! For only $1/card (must order in packs of 20), every card includes two printed sides, envelope return addressing and free shipping. The process is fast and simple with the app, and the quality is right on par with competitors. I highly recommend if you’re still looking for cards!


This blow dry spray has magical powers. The time it takes to blow dry my hair has been cut in half, and it also leaves my hair soft and frizz-free.


One of my favorite new holiday home decor pieces. I’m tempted to keep this out year round and swap out what goes inside.

I think I’m the last person to discover Lindsay’s artwork, but hey – better late than never!

Good quality lamps at a reasonable price can be hard to find, and this one hits both those points (especially since I got it on sale). You win again, Target.


These are my current favorite, wear-with-everything earrings.

I’m convinced that Target’s Universal Thread line can do no wrong. My new purse is another example of that theory! It’s functional, simple but stylish enough, and quality that can’t be beat for the price.

If you have a Costco membership, keep an eye out for a lightweight coat from Eddie Bauer. I couldn’t find this online to link to it, but I am OBSESSED with this coat. It’s the perfect length, you can adjust how it cinches at the waist to create a flattering shape, and the material is practically weightless but still keeps you super warm. AND IT’S ONLY $25. Run, don’t walk.

Blogger Spotlight

Liz is a long-time favorite blogger of mine, but she’s been killing it in recent weeks with her holiday decor. I dare you not to use the word “dreamy” when trying to think of how to describe it. You also should check her out on Instagram – she shares some more personal stuff on stories, which always is fun in my opinion.

What are some of your favorite things from the last month?

    I’m all about cutting my hair drying time in half and I love Kristin’s products. Beauty wise I’ve been pretty obsessed with the becca highlighter gift from Sephora that I picked up during their sale!

    Isn’t it insane that it’s already December?! I definitely need to look into the chapbooks app, I haven’t yet created cards this year and need to get on the ball.

      I was thrilled with how easy and inexpensive Chatbooks was, and the quality of our cards were still great. Highly recommend!

    It has been so long since I’ve had time to sit and catch up with your blog and immediately I can tell we are still in sync because I am sitting by the Christmas tree with Gilmore Girls in the background as I type 😛 I’ve been so curious about the Kristen Ess products! I think we can get them in Canada now so the blow dry spray is going to be first on my list!

      Awe hey girl! Miss seeing you around here! Hope all is well with you. 🙂 The Kristin Ess products are seriously so glad – I’m happy to hear you can get them in Canada now!
