I seriously cannot believe it’s November. < I know I totally say that about every month, but I *really* cannot believe it’s November! I mean, when!? What happened?
Because this holiday season is a whirlwind for most of us, this Rebel Favorites is going to be HUGE with a bonus gift giving guide as well! That way you can order your gifts ahead of time and save ’em until all your December holiday parties. I dunno about you, but this time of year I’m always looking for shortcuts!
As always, please feel free to leave me links of things you’re loving this month, too!
OBSESSED with this! (And psst, you may see me wearing this on TV soon! 😉 )
Love this mid-century inspired tree topper!
Take my money!
It’s so smoky in California + the season for getting glammed up, so I love this to remove makeup, power my skin with antioxidants, and banish all the gunk in the atmosphere.
Dying to try this to help combat the air pollution, too!
I’m so sensitive because of my insomnia, so during my night showers I only use my go-to and have sweet slumbers. It only comes out this time of year, so I stock up!
…but this one’s amazing, too! Spicy, warm + cozy goodness!
Must. Face. Plant.
So pretty for the holidays!
My go-to drink recipe this time of year!
I’m throwing a holiday party and am def going to use this guide to building the perfect appetizer!
This jewelry set is precious and perfect for my astrological-loving self!
As for books, I didn’t read as many this past month because I had a huge stack of magazines to plow through. But I am enjoying these thoughtful and complicated mix of short stories!
Just picked these beauties up! Perfect size, and perfect symbol.
Cannot handle the cuteness!
Dying to read this!
Just discovered Mama Macabre on Etsy and love her stuff! I’m trying to be more eco-friendly, and her reusable pads, kitchen supplies and towels are amazing! Plus, I love supporting small business owners.

For the Unique, Hard-to-Shop-for Gal in Your Life
Any one of these delectable flavors are guaranteed to please your finicky friend, and the vessel is just as gorgeous as the fragrance! (I particularly like Panjore Lychee and French Cade Lavender).
My fave macaron shop delivers all over the US, and their unique flavors cannot be beat (hello, cookie dough and pecan pie!). Get a variety pack for your fickle pal, or send her some of their IG-worthy rainbow black & white cookies, all certified kosher and GF!
