My Favorite Things for November + Giveaway

Happy November y'all! Hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween weekend. In case you missed it, head over to my Instagram to see what I dressed up as this year. It was a last minute idea, but turned out to be such a big hit!

It's hard to believe that we're ten months down for 2015, and that the new year is quickly approaching. I know I'm going to blink and the next two months are going to be gone. Life, please slow down!! In honor of the new month, I've got a brand new roundup of my favorite things + a little giveaway to help you start your holiday shopping!

Favorite Things for November

The month of November is when the real fall weather hits DC. Thankfully the temps will start to cool down even more, and I can finally break out the blanket scarves. I love this burgundy one featured above from Nordstrom. I just noticed that my roundup has a color scheme. Totally not planned, but you can clearly tell what color I'm still loving for the fall.

I've had this H&M bag for a few months now, and the shape and quality has held up well. I get so many compliments on it, and the best part is it's less than $50! I'm also loving my heeled booties, and just added these Express lasso booties to my closet. Speaking of shoes, lace tie-ups are all the rage this season. I haven't been as eager to try out this trend, but the burgundy ones above have definitely changed my mind.

Beauty wise, I finally broke down and added color to my lipstick collection. Normally I'm all about the gloss, but I decided to give this NARS color a try and fell in love. I've worn it every day since picking it up. I've also been switching back and forth nail wise between this color and the Bordeaux color featured above.

To help capture the holiday events I've got coming up, I splurged and finally bought the camera I've been wanting. I can't wait to try it out all fall + use during my Christmas vacation to Orlando!

Finally, don't forget to purchase your Christmas cards!! Minted has the best selection of photo and non-photo cards. I recommend sending the first week of December, that way your friends and family can enjoy the card all month long!

Ohh, and about that giveaway… I've teamed up with a fabulous group of bloggers to give one lucky winner some extra holiday cash, just in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
