november favorites

How is it already almost December? And how do we only have one month left in 2015? I would say that this year flew by, but that's really just an understatement...

November has been a busy month! Between traveling to NYC to visit my bestfriend (and plan our trip to Europe!), a lot of different events for work, and of course, Thanksgiving, I've been out and about almost every weekend!

We've had a few pretty cold days already this "winter", so I've been pulling out some of my favorite things for the cold - including camp socks, moisturizers for both my face and lips, and tea!

Camp Socks (love the J. Crew Factory camp socks!)
Acure Oil Control Facial Moisturizer
Kate Spade Twirl Perfume (unfortunately not available anymore!)
Burt's Bees Vanilla Bean Lip Balm (a great twist on the classic Burt's Bees!)
Sanita Yanini Clogs
Lilly Pulitzer Travel Coffee Mug
Jackery Bar Portable Charger
Harney & Sons English Breakfast Tea Sachets

What have y'all been into this month?
I am so looking forward to December and the holidays!  There's nothing better than cozying up with a mug of tea in front of the Christmas tree!

european vacation

As I alluded to in my previous post, I'll be traveling to Europe in March!

Copenhagen, Denmark

One of my best friends from high school, Diana, and I will be traveling to Copenhagen to visit another one of our high school friends, Kristen.  While we're in Europe, we plan to travel to Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam...but the travels within Europe are fairly flexible depending on what's going on while we're there.

We haven't nailed down too many of the plans, but we're purchasing our plane tickets tomorrow, so I think that means we're off to a good start!

Brussels, Belgium

I plan to blog not only our trip, but the planning process, if y'all are interested!  I've never been to any of these places (the only place I've been in Europe in Spain), and I couldn't be more excited!

Have any of y'all been to any of these places?  Recommendations? Must dos? Must sees?

Currently in November...

Remember me? Just your friend Rebecca who hasn't posted on this little ole blog since September..oops! I'm working on redesigning the blog, coming up with some new content, and getting back into the swing of things....but better way to start off than with a long update!

reading …  Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling
watching … How To Get Away with Murder! My mom and I recently rewatched the first season so that we would remember everything going into the second season.
trying … to not go to bed at 7pm even though it’s already dark by the time I get out of work
cooking … lots of baked goods – specifically pumpkin muffins!
eating … soups and chili – it’s the perfect time of year to cook up a huge pot of soup and then take it for lunch throughout the week
drinking … way too much coffee and tea.
calling … Nordstrom because apparently I never accepted the “Terms and Conditions” on my Nordstrom card which is why it never worked for me!
tweeting … far too many snarky things regarding the stupidity I encounter on a daily basis
going … to Europe in March! Stay tuned for more details about my euro trip!
loving … that it’s finally chilly out which means that I can bring out my favorite sweaters and scarves
hating … being in Pennsylvania while all of my friends are in Virginia
feeling … anxious for a big work event that is taking place on Friday
hoping (for) … peace in countries that are currently experiencing turmoil
listening (to) … old Mumford and Sons.  Something about late fall always makes me want to listen to Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers.
celebrating … the small victories in life like selling an ad at work or getting a new shirt in the mail on time to wear to a special event
smelling … my favorite Cinnamon Sugar Donut candle from Bath and Bodyworks
ordering … some new booties to keep my feet warm this winter
thanking God … that my family will all be in one place for Thanksgiving Day!
starting … to make my Christmas list! What goodies are you asking for this year?
finishing ... a new layout for the blog and with that will come some new posts!

What have y'all been up to?
