I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones! Before I hop into my Black Friday online shopping spree, here's a quick look at the 5 things I'm loving this week.
Thanksgiving just had to take the #1 spot this week, especially because we got ridiculously lucky with the weather. It was a perfect, low 60s kind of day here in New Jersey so we were able to enjoy our appetizers outside by the fire pit.
It's just not an Italian Thanksgiving without a yummy bowl of my dad's famous pasta e fagioli soup! And of course, there was more than enough of all of the traditional dishes to go around.
How did you celebrate the holiday this year?
LA & T Thanksgiving
Earlier this week, T and I made our own mini-Thanksgiving feast at home. Not only was it a delicious excuse to have even more of our favorite holiday foods (you can pass the green bean casserole this way, please) but it was really nice to have some time to ourselves to focus on all the things we have to be thankful for this year. Plus, I finally got to try out the multi-colored leaf sugar cookies that I've had pinned for a few years!
RBL Sale Stash
While M and I were devastated to learn that our beloved Rescue Beauty Lounge was closing its doors forever, we both took full advantage of their big going out of business sale (well, I was semi-restrained with purchasing 6 polishes...M might have put just a few more bottles in her shopping cart!). We're already mourning the loss of this fantastic company, but at least we still have some new glittery, shiny polishes to help ease the pain!
