Clockwise from top left: 

Beanie Hat Knitting Kit from Smoke & Slate – It really started to feel like Autumn in New England this past weekend. And as I do most fall season, I put away my needlepoint projects for a moment and dusted off my knitting needles. (I find it can be fun to change it up and get back into knitting each fall/winter!) I just started this winter hat this weekend and think it might be fun to make a blanket next! 

Mini Trio of Clean Sticks by Westman Atelier: Guess what?! One of our favorite clean makeup brands, Westman Atelier, is selling some of our favorite products in miniature sizes for the holiday season! This Trio Set is offered in two colorways and includes three minis, a highlighter, a bronzer, and a lip/cheek stick. This makeup set would make the perfect gift for any woman in your life – a daughter, sister, best friend, mother, etc. 

I would suggest ordering this ASAP because I have a feeling this could sell out! (I just ordered both colorways, even though I already own many of the full sizes, I think the mini sizes will be so nice for travel or to keep in my purse!)

Resurfacing Face Mask by Tata Harper:  If someone asked me what my top five skincare products are, I think this brightening face mask would certainly be on the list. I have continually used this mask for more than 5+ years; I have yet to find any other product that can deliver such immediate results. Anytime my skin feels a bit lackluster, dull, or has clogged pores, I will wear this mask for 20-30 minutes and quickly see a brighter complexion afterward. (I often wear this the morning before a big event or a day when I want my skin to look its best!) Unfortunately, when I used the mask this weekend, I realized that my jar was running dangerously low, so I rushed to re-order! 

Bath Mat from Weezie Towels – if you are a longtime blog reader, then you know that my go-to source for bath towels is Weezie; I think they just make the softest towels around (and then their robes (!) so good!) This fall Weeize launched their much-anticipated Bath Mats and Bath Rugs, so I quickly placed an order for a Piped Edge Bath Mat with Navy Trim. 

Dog Collar Needlepoint Canvas by Ann Kaye Studio – Even though I might be knitting a bit more these days than needlepointing, that does not mean that I have stopped adding to my basket of needlepoint projects! I just ordered this cute patterned canvas from my friend Ann Kaye. Ann originally designed the canvas as a dog collar (so cute!) but I am actually going to try and use the canvas as a bag strap. I ordered two dog collars and hope to have them finished into handles on a canvas bag (I’ll keep you all posted on if it works!) 

Christmas Needlepoint Pillows from Furbish – I know it might seem crazy to think about it, but December and the holiday season will be here before we know it. And how FUN are these needlepoint pillows from Furbish? They always have the best cheeky sayings. 

P.S. The Furbish team kindly gave us an exclusive discount! Use code nan20 for 20% off sitewide!

Holiday Cards from Dogwood Hill – And with the holidays on our minds, have you picked out your Christmas Card? This past weekend my mom was looking through her camera roll, trying to find the perfect family Christmas card photo for us to use this year. I always love helping my mom look at card designs, and one of my favorite resources is Dogwood Hill. The female-founded, southern company always has the most beautiful designs in a wide range of styles. 

ShopBop Fall Sale – Don’t forget to check out the ShopBop Fall sale, where full-price items are up to 25% off. I never think it is good to shop a sale just because items are on sale but it can be a great time to invest in quality items you have your eye on! Last year I bought this Wool Theory Jacket and this year I ordered another colorway of my favorite cashmere scarf. See all my favorite items here. 

P.S. My friend Sarah (who is also a very supportive Simply Elegant Blog follower!) recently featured me on her blog, Fewer & Better. I am so flattered that Sarah thought of me for her interview series! Read the full interview here; we chat about five of the most cherished items in my closet, how I developed my personal style and so much more!
