17 Cool Things You Need to Click On Today




Are you guys ready for the holidays? I've done a lot of my shopping--but definitely not all of it! Finishing it all is my goal for next week. Otherwise, we're getting into the spirit! We decorated the tree last weekend, and this weekend, we're heading into the city and taking the kids to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and the Rockefeller Center tree. Whatever you're up to this weekend, I hope it's great. Here's some fun links to check out in the meantime.

• My love for J.Crew's Tippi sweater is well established on this blog. (Reminder: It goes with everything, it can be dressed up or down, and it's super flattering.) And now they have a Tippi with a heart-eyes emoji on it! And it's on sale!

• Surprisingly, Ann Taylor has really good going-out tops. (And I mean tops that are good for, like, going out to dinner with friends. I'm not suggesting you shop at Ann Taylor for clubwear, people!) I love the sleeves on this one (should I get red or black though?), the cut-outs on this one, and the color of (and, well, everything else about) this one. They also always have amazing sales. (Right now, 40 percent off all full-price stuff!)

• This supersoft Barefoot Dreams cardigan is on my Christmas list. It basically feels like walking around in a cozy, cushy robe all day long. (Yes, please!)

• I loved checking out Grace's gorgeous holiday dinner and I'm SO excited about her giveaway: You could win a (gold!) Away suitcase stuffed with West Elm goodies. Enter here.

• Would you buy makeup from 7-11?

• Do you guys follow Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess? She's long been one of my favorite follows, but for the past few days, I have been absolutely riveted by her feed. She and her husband are currently in China adopting a baby girl, Nova, and it is the most beautiful story. I actually had tears in my eyes when she shared the first photo of Nova, and I check her feed several times during the day to make sure the Instagram algorithm isn't hiding anything from me! I get that this is slightly stalker-ish, but I bet once you read her story and follow along, you'll be hooked, too. You can follow her on Instagram here and read the backstory of the adoption here

• This multi-braided hairstyle is the coolest.

• This blogger photo shoot took places in Lowe's and it is chic AF!

• When holidays cards get brutally honest.

• Who else out there is old enough to remember Freezy Freakies, those color-changing gloves from the '80s? Well, they're back--and in adult sizes, too. I totally want a pair. Is that weird?

•  Loved this tour of Gray Benko's home--especially that gallery wall of oil portraits. So cool!

• The world's largest Starbucks is nuttttts!

• A dying woman asks to see the ocean one last time. Such a moving photo...

And in case you missed it, I...

• Shared 12 awesome beauty gifts to give--or receive.

• Introduced you to this gorgeous red velvet top.

• Highlighted a great deal (free holiday home and cleaning products!) on Grove Collaborative. **Secret inside tip: Even though, it's supposed to be over, you can actually still get the deal--and the free stuff--but only if you go through my link. (Shh!)

• Found tons of cute pajamas.

Have a great weekend!
