1. November 1 officially marks our most FAVORITE time of the year! We love EVERYTHING about the holiday season- all the pretty decorations, sharing family traditions, holiday parties with dear friends, the joy of finding the perfect gifts for those you love most….but tippy top of our list- is the scent of the season! Truly nothing better then the smell of fresh pine filling the air! We’re so excited to share with you our very own P&P holiday candle which will be available for sale through the end of November. Whether you’re looking for the perfect hostess gift for all of your upcoming holiday parties or if you’re like us and can’t peel yourself away from the Christmas tree lot because it just smells so good, our holiday candle is a must!

2. A great way to freshen up your space is with the addition of a new rug! One of our go-to favorites Serena & Lily is currently offering up to 25% off of rugs! We love the pattern on this flatweave and this border sisal is a classic favorite! Ikat and fringe, that’s something we’ll always say yes to, and we have this graphic stripe dhurrie and absolutely love it! See all of our rug favorites here!

3. Tis’ the season for amazing sales! One we’ll definitely be taking advantage of is the J.Crew Friends & Family where you can take up to 35% off! We shared a few of our checks & plaids favorites yesterday but also have our eyes on this lavender beauty, this red wrap coat and this quilted jacket which are sure to keep us not only warm but super stylish! We have officially found the sweater that we’ll be living in all winter (it has the best texture and we’re loving it more than cashmere)! We love the stripes and neck detail on this top plus you can catch us wearing these daily!

4. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, one accessory we’re happy to invest in is a great statement bag! How darling is this pretty pale blue clutch, we have our eye on this YSL beauty, and this beaded tote is adorable plus we’re always a fan of a pop of colorful velvet and a big graphic heart!

5. We love a pretty party dress this time of year and this, this, this and this and this are top of our list! Plus if the dresses weren’t already enticing enough, they’re all currently 30% off and you get the most adorable garment bag with purchase!

6. It’s a great time of year to stock up on home essentials, especially when the entire Williams-Sonoma family of brands (Pottery Barn, West Elm, Rejuvenation & WS Home) is having their Friends & Family sale where you can take up to 40% off! With Thanksgiving right around the corner, tabletop items are a must and we’re currently loving this, this and this! Now that it’s getting darker earlier, we’re using ambient lighting more than ever and have our eyes on this, this and this plus the cooler weather makes us want to get extra cozy so we’ll be snuggling up with this, this and this!

7. We’re in full on gift giving mode and love when we can give something that feels special and personalized! Mark & Graham is such a great source for custom pieces for everyone on your list! Looking for something for the adventurer in your life, we love this set (currently 20% off) and this garment bag! For the techie in your life, we think this and this are pretty cool and if you’re like us and love game night, we’re big fans of this, this and this! Oh and let’s not forget about the lady in your life, we’ve added this, this and this to our wish list!

8. It should come as no surprise that we love a good sale and we also love Tory Burch (currently offering 40% off sale items)! You know we can’t resist a great pair of shoes and think these would be the perfect pair to wear to upcoming holiday parties and we’ll be taking these on our warm weather vacation! How beautiful is this caftan and we’ve added this bag to our cart and can we also talk about how cute this is?

9. We’re crushing on pink and red this holiday season! We can’t resist a pop of red and a great floral print, we love the scale and playful shape of these, we’ve never met a tassel we didn’t like, and plan on keeping ourselves extra warm while wearing this double breasted beauty!

10. With the holidays right around the corner, that means lots of visiting friends and family which has us in full on prep mode to make sure the house is in tip top shape! Art is one of favorite ways to transform a space and we’re in the process of hanging this set down our hall! A cozy bed is super important and we’re loving this plus we think these stools and a set of these chairs would be the perfect spot to sit and dine! Also, we’ve said it before and will say it again, lighting is the jewel of your home and we’re seriously in love with this and think we may need this for our guest room.
