Now, onto regularly scheduled programming with the weekly roundup!


  • Celebrated a Thanksgiving on Zoom from my apartment solo. It was partially heartbreaking but also led me to spend more time recognizing all I have to be grateful for after such a hard year. I also made myself plenty of delicious food 🙂 I hope you had a nice & safe holiday.
  • Shot a lot of holiday campaigns for brands I love and am so excited to work with. One of them I am working with for the first time formally and SO pumped about it. It’ll be live on Instagram today!
  • Totally updated the My Closet part of The Shop! This is the best place to look for things you’ve seen me wearing.
  • Made this delicious bolognese. Incredibly easy and so flavorful!




  • How cool is this smoking cloche? Perfect the guy who loves to play bartender at home!
  • This watch is beautiful and looks more expensive than its price tag. A perfect gift.
  • This velvet dress is super affordable and would work well for holiday festivities.
  • Have someone on your list who is tough to shop for? I love the idea of a fresh flower subscription. It’s happiness delivered every month!
  • I mentioned the cool kitchen brand Material in last week’s roundup (I am loving my new items from there!) and they just launched Kinder Kitchens – between November 23 and December 1, all of their goods will be available at a (rare!) discount and you’ll have the opportunity to contribute a portion of your discount as a donation to one of two organizations that give back to important aspects of the food & hospitality industries : Heart of Dinner and Drive Change. 
  • I think a coffee table book always makes a nice gift and the NYT did a great roundup of ones that make great gifts.

  1. Just read that you opted for a non underwire bra for your flight and I wanted to recommend True & Co. I grabbed a couple bras a few months back and they are amazingly comfortable, like rather toss all of my other bras in the fire if I could wear this one for the rest of my days kind of comfortable. And they’ve got a Black Friday deal going right now for 25% off everything on their site.

  2. Just ordered the plush socks and a headband from J.Crew Factory. So many great sales and so much added to my wishlist. Trying not to buy to much for me before I finish my kid’s Christmas shopping.
