I haven’t done a favorites list in awhile, and therefore I’m long overdue. Here are some swoon-worthy goodies I’m lusting after this month. Enjoy!
Quiet on the Quay Coat from ModCloth, $100. Not only is this coat A-FREAKING-DORABLE, but it looks cozy and practical, too. Since I’m a Californian, my heaviest “coat” is actually a denim jacket, so splurging on a heavy-duty coat for our typical weather seems necessary. Plus, I love the sailory details!
Vintage Reindeer Cookie Jar from World Market, $20. My mom finds this kitschy cookie jar to be terrifying, but I find an odd comfort in it. It reminds me of the knockoff Christmas movies my grandma would find at yard sales or the depths of hell or wherever those wacky tapes came from.
Too Faced Sugar & Spice Palette from ULTA, $39. I am dying over the Sugared Violet and Bon Bon shades! And of course I love that they’re all named after delicious sweets and treats. Too cute to pass up, and what a great gift idea!
Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses. I’m obsessed. They’re easily one of my favorite candies — period. And I hate that they’re only seasonal. Can we make peppermint a yearround flavor please? Because peppermint in the summer is refreshing. Peppermint in the spring is promising. Peppermint in the fall is exciting. And peppermint in the winter is perfect. See?!
Stalker, on CBS Wednesday nights. When I initially saw the posters, I thought this show would be stupid – CSI status (sorry CSI fans). However, the first episode was AWESOME and the episodes after all continued to leave me on the edge of my seat. The writing is great and I love Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott. I hope it gets renewed for a second season!
Raccoon Handmade Acrylic Necklace from I’m Your Present, $14. I’m Your Present is an ADORABLE Etsy shop I’ve been following for awhile now. And if you’ve been following me for awhile now, you know I love raccoons! This necklace is kinda sorta a must-have, but if raccoons ain’t your jam, owner Kelly has a ton of other cute stuff you’re sure to love.
The Maelle Collection at Anthropologie, $12-60; featured Baking Pan, $36. This Maelle Collection is simple, girlie, yet absolutely stunning. I love the vintage look, hand-painted details and pretty daintiness of it all. I spotted this collection originally at the Rockefeller Center Anthro store and had to race home to get my hands on it here in California. It’s so dreamy!
Galaxy Bib Necklace from Bauble Bar, $58. This gorgeous necklace is anything but understated and is a serious head-turner. It’s enough bling to make a statement without being too overwhelming, and in my opinion, it’s a perfect holiday-party necklace. Pair it with an LBD or even a jewel-toned frock for your holiday party-hopping and I guarantee you’ll get noticed. Love it!
My Levain-Bakery Copycat Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies. Okay, so I posted these in October BUT they’re still a November favorite seeing as I’ve made them twice (!!) since posting them only a week prior. They’re soft, chewy, filled with toasted, sweet walnuts and semi-sweet, rich & gooey chocolate chips for the ultimate cookie. Once you take a bite of these, you won’t want any others!
