Welcome to my first monthly favorites! I will be doing these blog posts every month : ) I tried to put my favorites in categories – fashion & beauty, multimedia, and noms. ‘Multimedia’ is such an awkward category, but it’s basically things related to the digital world (will use that word until I find a better word). I hope you will try out some of my favorites! Zara Girls Faux Fur Waistcoat with Hood – I featured this in my Fall Lookbook and have been wearing this vest loads.

‘TIS THE SEASON to buy the perfect presents for your friends, family, and lovers. If you’re like me, you probably cannot wait for holiday shopping! Etsy is one of the first places I go to for holiday shopping, because there are so many options for personalized and handcrafted gifts that you can’t find in store. I am collaborating with some Etsy stores in this blog post to make holiday shopping easier and more fun for you.
