Happy first snow Friday! I know a lot of us in the Northeast got snow in the last 24 hours and I must confess it makes me so happy. I’m not sure if I’m in the minority or the majority but I LOVE the first snow. Of course it’s now raining so the romance is dead, but it was fun while it lasted. I legit can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving next week. We are getting our new Cafe Appliances in the next few days though, and I am SO excited because we will have them in time for hosting Thanksgiving at our house. I’ll be spending this weekend writing out my Christmas lists and *starting* to do a little decorating (no tree until after Thanksgiving).

I just got this faux fur coat from Sezane and it is SO beautiful in person. It looks black online but it’s actually the most gorgeous blue. I have it in size 34. (J)
Was scared shitless by this story called The Watcher in New York magazine. It’s terrifying true crime and just so you know in advance, it’s still unsolved. So creepy. (C)

It’s great that you posted a link for the southern California fire victims but the Camp Fire up north is the worst fire in California history, continues to burn with only 40% containment, is creating major smoke pollution putting northern California with the worst air quality in the world right now, and the town of Paradise that almost entirely burnt down was primarily composed of people with a low SES and will likely not be able to rebuild with ease. Just wanted to post this so that others can help out the WHOLE state by donating to the American Red Cross.
Yes you are absolutely right and I am so sorry for the oversight on my part. Feel really terrible about that. Thank you. I am updating the post right now.
Thank you!!! Love your site 🙂
