Hi loves! Hope you’re having a great week so far! We had a blast celebrating Thanksgiving with our family and friends, and now I’ve been so busy preparing for Christmas! My due date is creeping up so quickly (December 11th), so I’m making sure to squeeze in as much gift shopping as possible! Today, I wanted to share with you guys 5 of my monthly favorites- let’s do this!!
Starting things off with one of my serious obsessions… CANDLES! I pretty much have candles burning at all times no matter the season, but during fall and winter, it feels just a little bit more relaxing and cozy. Some of my favorite candles right now are by REWINED, DW Home (can find them at Tj Maxx, Homegoods, etc.) and Sur La table‘s limited edition candles. I love all of the holiday scents that are out right now especially pine ones!
Next up – food! Stevie and I have been trying to cook more at home, and I truly enjoy the whole process – minus dishes because who really loves cleaning those up lol! It’s so fun to hang out in the kitchen and try out new recipes or remake some of our old favorites.
For an appetizer (or a side dish) I love this recipe for twice baked potatoes! They’re so yummy and cheesy, and I guarantee everyone at your dinner table will love them! For the main course, I’m going to HAVE to pick a Roasted Turkey as my favorite:). This recipe is so easy to follow, and since we don’t make turkey during the rest of the year, it’s super special when we get to have it during the holidays! My go-to holiday dessert has to be these Pumpkin Rolls. This sweet treat is the perfect ending to an excellent meal and super easy to make!
Bonus fave: For all of my babes that are over 21, check out this post all about my go-to wines and the perfect pairings to go with it!
Moving onto beauty, November for me has been all about bold lips! To me, that just screams holiday season. I gravitate towards deep, rich shades that just spice up any makeup look. I recently wore this one and got so many compliments on it from you guys! 😉
For fashion, I have basically been living in cozy sweater dresses. They’re just SO easy to style and super comfortable with my baby bump 🙂 I have been wearing them more casually with sneakers, dressing them up with flat thigh-high boots or ankle boots. This sleeveless one from Free People is one of my favorites. I love how you can style different tops underneath it for different looks. However you decide to style your sweater dress, you’re sure to be comfy – that has been the main priority for me!
My last favorite for this month has to be these plaid pillows I recently purchased! I love the coziness they bring to the living room and how I can use them year after year. Switching out your throw pillows is the easiest way to change things up in your living room without having to do anything too drastic. I’m going to be sharing a detailed post all about my holiday home decor, so stay tuned for that! 😉
Those were 5 of my monthly favorites! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and found some inspiration for this season 🙂 What were your favorites in November? Share them in the comments; I would love to know!
