West Elm’s Stylish Yule Logs
Checklist for my perfect mid-autumn night in: a good book, my Plant-Based Spiced Pumpkin Pie Shake, Mr. DoH close by, fur babies in sleepy formation, and West Elm’s Stylish Yule Logs streaming. Luxe Fireplace is my go-to.

Halfway Wholistic Holiday Shop
Katie, creator of the Halfway Wholistic blog, has a neutral style that I am onboard with. Her list of affordable holiday decor is right up my street. Plus, she starts decorating for the holidays in early November, which makes my mid-November decorating far more appropriate (in my mind).

3 Fresh Doorstep Decor Alternatives for the Season
My home interior is well into Christmas mode about two weeks before Thanksgiving. However, I feel a little funny putting out my exterior Christmas decor before December 1st. Typically, I have a few sad looking pumpkins hanging out on my doorstep in the interim. These beautiful alternatives from Terrain have me thinking it’s about time I step up my November doorstep decor game.

Velvet Christmas Stocking
These velvet Christmas stockings have a hold on me. They are not in traditional holiday shades but the color selection is still so beautiful and warm. I have a thing for velvet this year.
