A happy Thanksgiving and my yearly recipe

I’m gearing up for Thanksgiving this week with my yearly chocolate covered strawberry turkey recipe and crossing every limb I have for the miracle of seeing snow in Houston since I won’t be making it back to the east coast for the holiday. I’ll be laying low until next week with the exception of a few exciting tid-bits of news here and there but I’m wishing you lots of turkey induced naps and pieces of pie you don’t need but eat anyways.

Now, how many of you will be heading out for Black Friday? I’m terribly too impatient for lines and camping out, but if you have any online deals that I should know about I’m all ears!

15 Must-have Golden Holiday Entertainment Items


Funny story: this post was originally going to be title 10 Must-have Golden Holiday Entertainment Items, but somehow that turned into fifteen and that’s only because my collage skills aren’t honed enough for twenty. All of that to say that I’m obsessed with all these gold, as proven by my home tour and just about every other DIY I make (like yesterday).

Luckily for all of my family members, I just did their Christmas shopping for them by rounding up these fifteen golden items you should purchase (for me) right away. –

Far & Wide Collective


far and wide collective baskets

As much as I love unique handmade items, I love supporting people and their cause even more. So when Hedvig introduced me to her site, Far & Wide Collective, that features artisans in post-conflict countries to allow them fair trade support, I was all about it! Not to mention everything is beautiful, I mean, how could you go wrong?

Here are a few of my favorites–

Shop // Madewell Shoe Heaven



I’m 99% certain that whoever is in charge of shoes over at Madewell is blessed from heaven with a special ability to make me melt. Seriously, I don’t think there is a single shoe that I wouldn’t wear.

Also, I feel the need to confess that I put this post together just so my mom would know what to get me for my birthday in May… and I wear a size 6… don’t judge me.
