This week, I embraced the colder temperatures and colors of Fall in my neighborhood. I have enjoyed short walks and admired the changing leaves and ivy. My fleece has become a Fall staple in my wardrobe. I cooked recipes in my new Ina cookbook (thanks Peggy) and listened to jazz while I worked at home. My life has slowed down so much in comparison to last year’s travel schedule.
I just discovered this site called Only on The Avenue which has the cutest dishes for your kitchen!! I am making a wish list, dreaming of future dinner parties. You can buy each dish individually so if you are solo or just have a small family at home, you don’t have to buy a huge set of dishes. Mix and match is always my favorite way too. I ordered this pink butter dish, this bon appetit towel, and this green coffee cup.

How to Host a Zoom Thanksgiving I know this will be helpful as I am away from my family this year.
Nordstrom had to pivot in a big way in 2020 and I am pleased to see the Home additions to their site. So many great brands to shop for a home in one place. Plus, 7 Black-Owned Beauty Brands to Shop at Nordstrom
Now that the weather has turned colder, I have been drinking more tea at home. I love Rooibos which is caffeine-free and I just ordered this from Palais des Thès which is their holiday rooibos.
I finally decided on wallpaper and it is Serena and Lily. I hope to share more once it is up, but you can browse the selection here and everything is 20% off.

I purchased this wine opener from Amazon and it is a little bulky but I am terrible at opening wine and this is the easiest thing ever for $20!
I just got a preview copy of this bundt cake recipe book. I can’t wait to try it out.
All about the intense Bonne Maman jam. I didn’t know this was a thing until this week.
P.S. My Boll and Branch blanket arrived this week and I love it. It has been keeping me warm with these colder temperatures. I reached out to them for a coupon code and they happily sent one over in case you want to try them. It is an investment but I have owned my Boll and Branch items for 5 years and the quality has held up. I keep adding little additions here and there like new pillows and a duvet comforter. I will share a home update with all the changes this coming week. Use the code 50REBECCA at Boll and Branch for $50 off $200 or more.
