The holidays are in full swing. I decorated my mantle and made a delicious Channukah dinner during the week. I have four advent calendars (two tea, one chocolate, and one jam). So, I love this time of year so much. On Tuesday, I donated to two great causes with your help. Thank you so much to all those who purchased The Paris Calendar. Over $1,000 was donated to Flatwater and Alex’s Lemonade.
This weekend was kicked off with a little raclette party at my Paris family’s house. By party I mean there were four of us. I now have this machine on my wish list. If you love raclette and are interested in doing it at home, Trader Joe’s has the best cheese but they consider it “seasonal” and stop selling it by January 1st. So stock up now!
A new Amalfi Coast hotel just opened. I saw this one being built when I was there in July. It looks stunning. Adding it to my bucket list of hotel stays.

My favorite Staub pan is on sale for the holidays for $199. I have used this pan so many times. It is well worth the investment. It makes a great roast chicken!

I ordered a few things from J.Crew that just arrived including this Cocoon black coat and these pajamas. (sadly sold out)
I got this Barbour jacket for Channukah. I have wanted it for a while now. Also, I upgraded my Amazon fleece which will be donated.
I got a Sézane gift card for Channukah and put it towards this sweatshirt. On Giving Tuesday all the proceeds went to feeding the hungry. It was a win/win.
