  1. Feeling inspired by this awesome urban art. They print the design from drain covers onto shirts, bags, and posters. It is so cool.il_570xN.1150855594_2tju
  2. I am in the market for a felt wreath this year. I love that they can be used year after year and you don’t have to worry about replacing the purchase again and again. These are the ones that I already have my eye on – Felted Songbird Wreath (Anthropologie, $78), Wreath with Green Felt Leaves, White Berries, Pinecones (Target, $20) and the Year-Round All Season Wreath (it’s the one in the picture) – (Etsy, $50).
  3. So excited about this new show with Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, with those two amazing actresses at the helm, is going to be awesome.
  4. Really loving the weather change here in LA and how things are finally starting to feel like fall. Added lots of wonderful fall favorites to our Pinterest page.

  1. I’m starting the Thanksgiving countdown and already thinking about what I should nh_coatsbring to this year’s dinner! Some of my go-tos of the past are cranberry-brie puff pastry appetizers, fruit tarts, and stuffing (my favorite Thanksgiving dish!). I’m feeling extra inspired by all the spaghetti squash recipes coming across my “plate” lately [1], [2], [3].
  2. Starting to backstock some emergency hostess gifts for the holidays and I’m feeling great about some recent finds: funny/punny kitchen towels, wildflower seed bombs, mini scented candle library, olivewood and marble serving board, and city map prints.
  3. Very much appreciate Gal Meets Glam’s “Once You’re There” travel post. I usually have to pep-talk myself to hit the ground running on arrival in a new place, and Julia’s tips are all spot on. I used a lot of these tips (without fully realizing it) on one of my last trips to Vancouver, and it really helped me settle in and feel like I had a good feel for the city even only a day or two into the trip!
  4. I listened to the Patagonia “How I Built This” episode recently and it reminded me just how great their brand really is. I have a fleece I got my first year of high school that is still going strong, and my fiancé and I have matching fuzzy jackets that I’m sure will last us for many years to come…
