Four Things

The season of parties is about to rev up! From Thanksgiving to the Holidays, it truly is one of the most special times of the year. Prior to the (fun) chaos commencing, indulge yourself in a little down time this weekend – with maybe a bout or two out of the house. Here are just a few things we suggest you eat, wear, do and read.

Testing out your own menu for Thanksgiving this weekend, or deciding what dish to bring to your host? Take a stab at this into this “healthier” Sauteed Spinach with Crisp Pancetta.

Add a luxe touch of faux leather to your Saturday night – or Sunday brunch – look with these Citizens Of Humanity Avedon Secret Fit Belly® Coated Maternity Jeans topped by a gorgeously wispy MISOKA Long Sleeve Pleated Maternity Blouse.

Compliment the aforementioned chic ensemble with a sleek and sultry beauty look comprised of super straight locks and smoky eyes.

Chase away the impending winter chill by curling up on the couch with a mug of something hot accompanied by “Songs in Ordinary Time”, straight from THE book club list.

Four Things

Is it us, or do you too crave the weekly 48-hour span that promotes lounging, exploring, eating and creating? The weekend is finally here, and we’re looking forward to all of the comforts and fun times that come with it. Here are the four things we’ll definitely be doing.

Forego the wings and pizza this Sunday in favor of an easy, one-pot Skillet Gnocchi with Chard & White Beans that is decadent with a dose of health.

The impending cool temps are craving Joie’s fabulously chic Drape Front Maternity Sweater complete with a flattering cowl neck and wear-with-anything neutral shade.

Our hearts are going pitter-patter for these whimsical and DIY-perfect hanging crayon hearts.

Subtly sexy for Saturday night, bring out your gorgeous cat eyes for a look that is sure to turn heads

The official summer season has come to a close, and with that, fall-favorite activities are revving up. While the weather is still gorgeous outside, our week is spent looking forward to Saturdays when we can explore a new place, cook up a storm, experiment with our look and take some time to do some projects around the house. Whatever your plans are for this weekend, these Four Things are our current inspirations.

  1. An apple-cranberry crisp is the perfect thing to make with all of those freshly-picked apples.
  2. Chase the chill in a maternity sweater that blooms bright.
  3. Perfect the bun with easy styling tips that will give you a chic chignon or a trendy top knot.
  4. Customize the nursery for your little one an adorable name sign.
