November 2021 Favorites

It's December! Hellllooooo holidays! I've gotten a big chunk of our holiday shopping out of the way and now I'm focusing more on what to put on the menu. This year, my MIL has agreed to quarantine (as will we) for a few days prior to come celebrate and sleep over on Christmas Eve at our place. As stated in a prior post, we all have different comfort zones. It will be nice to have someone over, but to do it cautiously. I have the place fully decked out already and so begins the menu and activity planning!

For November, I found myself already whipping out more festive looks and outfits. Even if it was just to sit in the car while waiting on my Starbucks. My Christmas bag, face masks, sweaters, etc...they have already been in rotation the last few weeks. If it can be made festive, you better believe I will make it so! Haha!😄

Here are my favorites from November. I'd love to know what you have been using and loving! Have you started migrating to holiday looks and outfits or do you bother?

My 2021 Christmas List

It's that time of year again? Already?! I've contemplated doing gift guides this year after taking last year off from them. I think I'll refrain from doing them again, but I've already seen so many wonderful ones on other blogs. Gift guide posts do really well with traffic, but it just doesn't feel right this year. If it is something you want, I could gather a master list of ideas instead of themed posts/guides or link you to some of my favorite guides I've seen.

I thought I would keep up with the tradition of sharing a few things on my Christmas list and maybe that will also serve as some ideas for you. That's what I love about posts like these! I always find at least one thing that makes me go, "Wow! How did I not know about that?" or something in that nature. 😄 I find the older I get, the harder it is to come up with a Christmas list. I feel like they were novels written in seconds in my childhood. Now, of course I have a running wishlist of sorts, but it always feels different when putting it into gift terms. If that makes any sense...

October 2021 Favorites

It's been a while. Sorry about that. It has been a hectic month with a lot of things going on. By the time I was ready to post again, I lost my uncle. Mourning away from family is a monster in its own right. My uncle Bill was the biggest Atlanta Braves fan I knew, so watching them win the World Series last night was very cathartic in a sense.

I wish I could say that I plan on updating this blog of mine frequently, but I can't with certainty. We're dealing with finalizing a family estate on one side of the family, dealing with a recent death on the other, and our car decided to go out of commission. Tack that on to what the year has already been like and well, I'm just tired. Blogging is one of my favorite things and even it has started to feel a bit like a chore. Taking these weeks off helped tremendously by battling those feelings and refreshing the course a little. I'm not going to put pressure on myself and promise content and have it feel forced. I hope that makes sense and that you understand. I'm not going anywhere, I'm just taking some pressure off of myself in an area where I can.

Moving on to happier subjects, it's November! I love being an American in Canada especially at this time of year, everyone here moves right to Christmas after Halloween because Canadian Thanksgiving is in early October. So even though I haven't had my Thanksgiving yet, no one bats an eye that I want all of the Christmas music and decorations NOW. Haha, it's a dream come true! And I get my second Thanksgiving in a few weeks?? Living my holiday-loving dreams! 😄

Before I fully move into the November state of mind, here are my October favorites!

September 2021 Favorites

I always enjoy favorites posts and they are easy enough to put together. Just wanted to get this up before the holiday weekend starts up here, as Canada's Thanksgiving is upon us. My first of two Thanksgivings, never something I will complain about. 😁 It's just us again this year as our comfort level is not where others might be with having in person feasts and get-togethers. We still prefer masking and distancing when possible. That doesn't mean that I'm not going full throttle and being as festive as possible! I have every festive meal and treat planned. And the best part is having today and Monday as days off!

Here are a few things I've been loving this month. Have you tried any of these? I would love to know what you have been enjoying recently. There's been so many launches and releases that I can hardly keep up! Happy weekend, y'all!

Blog of the Month for October 2021 - I'm Not a Beauty Guru

In September, Michelle from The Skincare Edit was my featured blogger. You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

This month, I've chosen Melanie from I'm Not a Beauty Guru as my featured blogger. This is not the first time I've featured Melanie, not even the second time. As a matter of fact, I featured her just last August (how has it been a year already since that post?!). But this is an exciting time because she just got married and I am so happy for her. Now of course, she also has beauty posts like this Charlotte Tilbury haul where I am living vicariously. 😍 I'd love it if you checked her blog out, because Melanie is as sweet as a peach!
