I grew up on the east coast where the leaves put on an amazing show every fall. The leaves in California are sort of blah where I live, but it’s literally raining brightly colored leaves here in Vancouver which has me really looking forward to Thanksgiving. It’s less than three weeks away! How’d that happen so fast? Thanksgiving is celebrated in October in Canada so my daughter hasn’t been down for turkey day in way too many years, but she’s coming this year!
Here’s what caught my eye this week.
With Thanksgiving on my mind, this black and white roasting pan jumped out. It’s in the Courtly Check pattern by MacKenzie Childs and would be an awesome update from my old Costco aluminum one. This one goes from oven to table and would look beautiful holding a turkey or lasagne, you name it. Even bread pudding would be great in this.
Since I love to cook, I’m a bit of an apron collector. My favorites were made by a company called Heavenly Hostess that went out of business, so I always keep an eye out for quality ones. This one coordinates with my home decor and is long enough to protect what I’m wearing. I love the big front pockets to stash things in while I’m cooking.
My switch to cruelty-free skincare and cosmetics was gradual. The further I committed to it, the less I was able to wear my conventional fragrances. I gradually tossed them all out and wore single note essential oils. They’re lovely but I miss wearing perfume so I’ve been searching for a new one to love. While shopping in the Vancouver Nordstrom with my daughter, we came across the Byredo display and had a field day.
We smelled and sprayed and tested long enough to leave the store with a headache. After one or six too many spritzes we reeked to high heaven and couldn’t make any decisions. Luckily, Nordstrom allows you to make little samples to bring home.
What’s your favorite fragrance?
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
