november letter from lauren on

I blinked, and somehow it’s November. Does anyone else feel that way? I’m not mad about it though. The truth is I’ve been itching to start planning my Thanksgiving menu, finessing my fall wardrobe, and shopping for holiday gifts. There’s a lot to be excited about this time of year, and even more to be grateful for. And I hope that all the content we have planned will help to capture a little bit of that holiday season magic and spread the spirit of Thanksgiving…

For starters, we have a whole Thanksgiving feast coming your way, courtesy of my friend Claire Thomas of the Kitchy Kitchen (with event design by But First, Party and Bonjour Fete). Get ready for the tastiest recipes and the prettiest tabletop. Fall fashion will also be top of mind, including a style guide for every type of Thanksgiving gathering, from casual to formal. And when it comes to beauty, the beautiful Amber Fillerup of Barefoot Blonde will be sharing her effortless topknot tutorial, along with a fuss-free fishtail braid.We’ll also be kicking off our series of holiday gift guides, in which we show you how to build the most beautiful, Instagram-worthy gift box for each and every person on your list.

On another note, the midterm elections are coming up this Tuesday, November 6th. I hope all of you will be making it out to the polls to participate in our democracy, which is one more thing I’m thankful for.

What else do you want to see on the blog and our social channels this month?

Let me know below.
