As many of you may know, the first day/second night of Hanukkah coincide with Thanksgiving this year becoming a hybrid holiday many are calling Thanksgivukkah. This is an extremely rare holiday mashup that first occurred in the late 1800s and won't happen again until 2070!Read More ➛
Hamilton Beach has dubbed this month #Smoovember, an appropriate name because it's the last month that you'd want to enjoy something cold in the morning. Once December comes along, it's simply too cold for smoothies in the morning!Read More ➛
I stumbled upon these two beauties while checking out Nordstrom's half yearly sale. I've loved this style of boot ever since I first saw it on Jessica Quirk of What I Wore (seen here, here, here, here and many other times). She's been wearing a her pair for the past few years, and I love their unique style and vintage feel.
It's amazing how similar these two pairs are, yet one pair costs more than 3x the other! Can you guess which pair is the mega splurge, and which one in an affordable luxury?

I've always felt that red heels have a place in every girl's closet (or in my case, shoe wall), but it wasn't until recently that I realized I could use a pair for things other than parties and events. While the traditional red heels (also know as FMRs) are more sexy than practical, a pair in burgundy with a less intense heel actually works very well at the office.Read More ➛
What do you do with leftover pumpkin purée? Make ravioli! Earlier in the week, I was experimenting with a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe (I'll share that soon if you'd like) that required 1/4 cup of pumpkin, which left me with almost an entire can of purée in the fridge. I had a bunch of different ideas of how we could use it, but one of the simplest and most delicious uses is definitely ravioli filling.Read More ➛
As I mentioned in a previous post, I've been trying to hit a goal of 10k steps per day over the past few weeks as part of the #Fit4Fall challenge with Planet Shoes. In the process, I've discovered a lot about my daily activity. I've found that when I work from home, I have to push myself extra hard to get up and hit the 10k, because I rarely leave the house. I often find myself walking in circles around the apartment just to hit my goal by the end of the day. When I go into the office, on the other hand, it's a lot easier to hit the 10k between getting there and taking lunch/coffee breaks.Read More ➛
