Monday Memo No. 33

A major sale, a binge-worthy show, and a few holiday gift list items you don’t want to miss.


Also, don’t miss today’s 30 Dresses in 30 Days post breaking down everything you need to know about dressing for a job interview!  And even if you’re not on the job market, you’re going to want to see this dress

Are you a Sephora VIB? I kinda feel like maybe we all are at this point? The reason I ask: Sephora is currently running one of their glorious 20% off your entire order moments, and it ends TONIGHT. I always have between one and 847 items in my Sephora cart at all times. Now is when you check out. I’m replenishing my favorite foundation, primer, and eyebrow pencil and likely going to hoard a few of the items on this list.

Do you have a ton of time to plan what you’ll bring to Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, and all the other ‘sgivings?  Me neither. So I was delighted to see that Jacey of Damsel in Dior just shared some scrumptious looking ideas!  I’m kind of entirely obsessed with those little pumpkin rolls.

Oprah’s Favorite Things for 2018 have ARRIVED. If you’re already feeling stressed about holiday shopping, this list is going to calm you right down, and also maybe compel you to score a few things for yourself. Here’s what’s standing out to me:

1)  No big deal they’re just FAUX FUR MITTENS.

2)  A rapid car charger — and whether you drive everyday or live in NYC, we all know that even a brief Uber ride can induce serious stress about your phone battery.

3)  Do I need this foot massager? I think I do.

4)  I’ve been looking for a maxi puffer coat (I know, just the thought of needing one...), and this one is looking like the winner.

I’d like to talk about a little television show called Bodyguard on Netflix, which I recently binge watched. It was SO SO GOOD and after discussing this recently on IG stories someone advised I watch Line of Duty from the same creator/writer, Jed Mercurio. I’m about to start Season 3 so needless to say, ALSO SO GOOD. It might be even better (if that's possible).

I recently posted this video on Instagram with an overview of 30 Dresses in 30 Days for any of you who might be new around here. Since I recorded it in my office, I've received lots of questions about the decor, which you can find in this post where everything is linked.

Holiday travel is coming up, and you know what that means — awkward sleeping positions on airplanes! I’ve heard this pillow comes highly recommended and is super supportive where other travel pillows are way too squishy.  Also, I really like the ability to adjust it to your own neck circumference.

My soon-to-be sister-in-law sent me these gourmet caramel apples last week as chronicled on Instastories. Let me tell you, there is nothing better in the WORLD.  Order them for everyone you love. They ship exceptionally well, arriving as fresh and delicious as they’d taste if you bought them right from the store in Cedarburg, WI.  BEST holiday gift ever.

Did you catch Friday's post with my friend Rachel Zoe? (There’s a navy velvet dress involved, you’ll be pleased.) We break down everything you need to know about dressing for winter weddings that call for cocktail attire and share some dynamite dresses that more than fit the bill.  Also, if you need a great gift for someone this holiday season (or yourself) Rachel Zoe just unveiled her winter Box of Style and it's GOOD.
