This & That

I recently finished Small Great Things which I would definitely recommend. I found the story of a nurse accused of negligence in a racially motivated incident to be haunting.

I'd like to recreate this entire look and wear it every day. This navy coat, striped t-shirt and distressed black jeans and super cosy scarf should do the trick!

I found this rundown on Retinols to be super helpful.

Have you watched the Amazon Originals Good Girls Revolt yet? Its a little bit like Mad Men but focuses on the experiences of the young women working at a fictional news magazine in the late 1960s

What's on your menu for Thanksgiving? I've done zero planning but this pumpkin pie fudge recipe looks too good!

Wardrobe Essentials: The Leopard Coat


There's nothing quite like a great statement coat to offset the blacks and grays that seem to dominate wardrobes this time of year. Don't get me wrong, I love wearing monochromatic looks, but sometimes you just need a punch of drama and a leopard print coat will do just that! While definitely a statement piece, a leopard coat can easily be dressed up for evening for a super glam look or dressed down with black denim and a cozy sweater during the day. I've been hunting for the perfect leopard coat for a couple of seasons now and this one is looking like it might just fir the bill. Some other great (and pretty affordable!) options below.

This week I finished Karolina's Twins which I really enjoyed. There were several twists I definitely didn't see coming which made the compelling story even more entertaining.

I finally upgraded to the new iPhone and had so much fun picking out a new case (ok, fine two cases I couldn't help myself!). Casetify has so many great ones it was impossible to pick just one!

{Beauty}
Is anyone else obsessed with Into The Gloss? Seriously I could waste spend hours reading through posts on that site! I particularly loved this one detailing the top 25 products of 2016.

Also, the Sephora Rouge sale starts tomorrow! Don't forget to stock up on all your favorites!

I can't wait for The Crown on Netflix to start on November 4th. Except I don't have Netflix so someone is going to have to invite me over to watch!!
