Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey. That combined with kids, houseguests, and having to make an endless supply of side dishes all timed in perfect harmony...it's a lot for one person. Hopefully by the time you've read this post, I will have answered any of your looming questions, but if there is still anything you are concerned about, please leave a comment at the end of the post, and I'll be sure to answer.

Is there anything more pretty than a big leather (or faux leather) satchel? Whenever I see one in a store, I just want to hug it and caress it and take it home with me. Don't judge. For fall and winter a big roomy satchel is essential. How else am I supposed to sneak treats into the movies? A sleek, structured satchel is perfect to wear to both the office and on the weekend. I tend to have one in brown, black, and metallic; so I always have one to match whatever I wear. Though I would love a new one in grey or a rich burgundy. Here are some picks under $100. Of course this time of year, you can also find great deals on designer satchels at stores like Ross, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls. And while I was researching affordable satchels on Amazon, I came across the handbag brand Scarleton, which consistently has both low prices ($20-$30 on average) and very good customer reviews. It's definitely worth checking out!
