It's hard enough to keep a healthy routine going on a daily basis, let alone the holidays. There is a plethora of food around the table, on the counters and in the fridge. If you're not careful, you can sabotage good habits. And if you don't have good habits to begin with, we should chat.
As I dress clients for holiday functions, I am reminded of everyone's goal to fit into that dress, that skirt, those pants. A festive season it is! However, it doesn't have to get out of control. Keeping your mind healthy is just as important as keeping your body healthy. Perhaps you've already discovered that the two are directly linked.
Branching out — whether that be in style or steps toward better health — is fantastic for the psyche. As my children made fun of my Thanksgiving day ensemble (short sleeve fur top, black shorts, textured tights and thigh high boots), I couldn't have been happier living in the moment.
Taking steps that are beneficial and easy to stick to will forever remain routine. You can always add to that routine. And if you don't know where to start, focus on just one or two things today. Sleep and excellent vitamins. Then we can move back to style!

Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.

From our table to yours, Happy Thanksgiving.

Pom Poms. Yummaliciousness. Cherished moments with friends. That is what this eyelash knit throw says to me.
Having spent an incredible day with a wonderful friend of mine, we needed a reminder of our time spent together. And this was it. This deliciously soft throw in subdued, speckled hues. Hers went in her living room, mine went in my bedroom.
I love this knit confetti throw more for what it represents. Awesomeness.

I am all about yummalicious-smelling goodness in my house. Especially around the holidays. And this is one combination I am excited about — Thyme, Lavender, Birch, Incense and Cedarwood.
Fornasetti's La Chiave Nero Diffusing Sphere is an essential oil-based diffuser fragranced with the label's signature Otto scent. Pour in a little of the liquid to the handcrafted ceramic sphere to perfume your home for three to six months. I love the design, dual-sided key and lock featuring opera singer and muse Lina Cavalieri.
