friday pic & pin by Anamu 25 Happy Friday, guys. For those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving - are you still totally stuffed? Can you please overnight some yummy leftovers? Pretty please?

As you can probably tell, I didn't have much time to plan a feast of our own but maybe we'll come up with something over the weekend. If not, I will definitely be getting crafty and will start decorating for Christmas. A little DIY I did for autumn was a flower votive using a ball of cotton twine - I know, so stupid simple but I love it!  You can see where I got the inspiration + more photos over at Poppytalk (plus check out their Black Friday & Cyber Monday handmade deals)

Cheers to the holiday season, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

This week's three rad links...

• tips for flying with a toddler

• get over your DSLR camera freight and get the holiday photos you really want

• a gift guide that gives twice + i'm now officially obsessed with LemLem. love the way they're making Ethiopian textiles look and feel so current.

{let's} getaway

let's getway to somewhere crisp & cool 1.  Vita Fede  /  2.  Chinti and Parker  /  3. Jimmy Choo  /  4. Lotuff  /  5. 7 For All Mankind  /  6. Divine Chocolate  /  7. Corso Como

Living close to the equator has its benefits (like year-round flip flops and poolside lounging) but there's no doubt that I will miss the cool crisp air that comes with the Fall season. The way it feels on your face is so refreshing and I love that short window of time when all you need is a great cashmere sweater and a scarf. This is my current dream outfit for an Autumn day out in the city complete with a cup of hot cocoa to snuggle up with at night. Maybe I'll just crank up the A/C and make believe :)

happy friday!

hooray for fall! The last time I experienced real autumn weather was when I did a semester at the University of Rhode Island. The fall foliage blew my mind and I'm starting to feel the exact same way this time around in London. The park and streets in our neighborhood are covered in fallen leaves every morning and it's pretty ridiculous how much pleasure I get out of hearing crunch, crunch, crunch beneath my feet as I walk along.

I can't wait for my mom to experience autumn in London with me!

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone. Get out there and enjoy the season!
