Here are some non-bookish articles I really liked this past month and my latest loves.

1 / After going to Vermont last month, the urge to travel is stronger than ever. BuzzFeed shared a list of "36 Ingenious Travel Products" and even though I have no immediate plans (yet!), I see a lot of things I want to buy for future trips. 

2 / Read about the "Fatal Flaw Friend Theory" on the Everygirl. That's it. Just read it. 

3 / I've been trying and failing at eating healthier. But this week, I'm feeling more determined than ever to get back on track. So right before I made my usual Saturday morning run to Trader Joe's, I looked up a list of the best healthy snacks to buy there. Thanks PopSugar for making my grocery shopping easier!

4 / Can you believe it's November? I've already started Christmas shopping and set up Secret Santa for my family. Which made me that much more excited to see Oprah's Favorite Things of 2021 List

5 / I recently got it in my head that I should have a favorite French restaurant in NYC. If I had to choose right this second, I'd probably say Claudette since I've been there the most but I don't really know if that's my final answer. Wit & Whimsy put together a short list of of her favorite French spots in NYC and clearly this was meant for me. 

6 / I am forever trying to declutter and Verily's "5 Questions to Ask Yourself When Decluttering" plus her 15 minute rule tip is giving me ideas. 

7 / I've had the same sofa since I moved in 8 years ago and while I do still love, I've often wished I had gone for a sectional sofa. Cue PopSugar's recent post on affordable sectionals from Walmart and it's seriously tempting me. 


1 / Aurate New York
was having a surprise sale so I finally caved in and bought the Diamond Brooklyn Bridge Ring that I've been eyeing for over a year. I've been wanting to invest in more real jewelry and I'm happy I added this to my collection!

2 / I've been really into oat milk with my coffee lately but something was missing whenever I made it at home. I realized it's because the milk wasn't frothed or steamed! So I got this little frother in pink and my coffee tastes better than ever. 

3 / I am a huge, huge fan of the L'oreal Serie Expert line when it comes to hair products and I recently bought the Primrose Oil to help with frizz and shine. So far, it's totally lived up to my expectations.
