Friday Favorites

Thanksgiving is just around the corner (less than two weeks!), and it has me in some kind of fall mood… I’ve loved experimenting with recipes and deciding what I’m going to dish up for my family this holiday. That cozy seasonal feeling is finally setting in, so I couldn’t resist sharing a few of my Friday Favorites with you all, inspired by this fun time of year. Keep scrolling to see what I fell in love with this week…

Favorite Festive Touch (these printables by PoppyJackShop make for the perfect festive touch to a Thanksgiving table):

Favorite Pie (you know I can’t resist a flower-adorned pie, like this one made by my editor Jessi Burrone):

The prettiest floral pie

nothing adorns a pie better than a little bloom

Favorite Cold-Weather Staple (this wool-cashmere duster coat has me—dare I say it—wishing for winter…):

    I love the coat & those beautiful ceramic mugs!

  • Great idea! One my wishes for Christmas is a set of golden fork, knife and spoon. And as a matter a fact I own a similar red coat from Zara. I have it for like 3 years. It’s still my favourite and you gave me some nice outfit idea for my blog. Thank you!

  • I absolutely love the table settings! I’m officially (finally) starting to get in the fall/festive spirit!! I also love the mugs… gorgeous!

  • I just made your apple pie and I love the flowers on that one! That Ellen video brightened up my day, those kids are so sweet 🙂

  • Nikki Laraja

    I am dying over the Ellen clip, I could watch those kids over and over again!

  • That pie is just so pretty! I don’t think I could eat it!

  • The mugs are so pretty! They’ll be such great additions to the home 🙂 And loving that wool-cashmere duster coat so much! Perfect fall wardrobe staple! Can’t wait for Thanksgiving too! Have a great weekend!

    XO, Elizabeth

    That coat is so beautiful & perfect for the cold season! I love all the light colors on the festive essentials – it’s girly but elegant at the same time.

    that pie looks AMAZING and so artistic! Irene, I’ve got a task for you! 😉

    • Irene Sung

      lol no Jennifer I definitely don’t think I can make a pie look that good

      • Kendra Wei


        • Irene Sung

          yea but it wasn’t an artistic looking pie! >.< you stop it kenny, you're the one who has a good eye for aesthetic things

          • Janelle Lien

            y’all can argue about who’s doing what but I’ll gladly volunteer myself for the eating xD

            Same Janelle, SAME.

          • Jennifer Xia

            ahaha foodies unite janelle! and also that’s first assuming that the pie actually comes out of the oven looking like a pie and not a burnt blob!

          • Samantha Du

            PLEASE Jennifer. I’ve seen you bake before. Trust me, you can make a pie 🙂

  • Amy Du

    I love ELLEN. so. much. Great clip, the kids always make me laugh so hard!
