Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

The October Edit


I admit, it's already tempting to look forward to Christmas and the twinkling lights that make even a trip to the mall seem more magical; but let's slow it down a sec and celebrate the falling leaves,  big orange pumpkins, and everything that makes fall such a fun season to enjoy. Here are a few of my favorite things this month. Pictured: Bauble Bar North Star Brooch Set

October Edit

1. Chilly autumn evenings call for a movie night in and a cozy throw blanket. I have an aversion to real fur, but I love a great faux fur throw. Threshold is one of my favorite affordable home brands at Target, and the Threshold Brown Fur Throw pictured above is a great deal at $34.99. I'd pick one up for myself and an extra one for a fool-proof Christmas gift for one of my girlfriends.


2. Sangria doesn't have to be just for summer. Try a Sangria wine with mulled cider for a spicy fall cocktail. Get the recipe here >

3. I love anything with pumpkin spice, especially a luxurious little candle. Stock up for last-minute hostess gifts. If you're on a budget for the holidays, save money on hostess gifts by purchasing a boxed set of candles and giving them out individually.

4. Of all the fun fashion trends this season, the one I'm most eager to get a piece of is fringe. This Urban Originals Lover Clutch is perfect for adding a touch of fringe; it's not too big or too small and the fringe is a good length.

5. This newest Bauble Bar collab is also on my radar this month. It features so many beautiful pieces designed by Olivia Palermo. Though I'm also looking forward to the new Gal Meets Glam collab with Bauble Bar as well.


6. I love real pumpkins for fall, but I also like some glamour as it gets closer to the holidays. I like to mix in something sparkly or metallic, like these Pier 1 Amber Luster Leaf Pumpkins.
