I don’t know about you but I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of November! As soon as November 1st arrives, I start thinking about the holidays, almost like clockwork. I see Christmas commercials and advertisements start to pop up everywhere and the cooler temperatures tempt me to daydream of holiday plans. I give in willingly, of course. We even have snow in our forecast for this neck of the woods! Which makes this November 2017 Desktop Calendar all the more appropriate! Scarves that double as blankets are one of my favorite things, for the record. Bundle up this month and enjoy cozying up with the ones you love!

Friendsgiving Printables

Friendsgiving PrintablesThanksgiving is in 3 weeks! If you’re on the ball, that means you’re probably already working on a menu and planning for the great feast. For the rest of us, we’re just hoping that we get invited to that house! Thanksgiving is traditionally spent with family and loved ones. People travel far and wide to join together to eat, drink, and be merry. Though perhaps you can’t get work off or don’t have the time or money to travel. Enter: Friendsgiving! Friendsgiving is a version of Thanksgiving but rather than family members, it’s your friends that compile the guest list. I love Friendsgiving because it’s the perfect excuse to reconnect with friends and enjoy a delicious dinner party. Where’s the bad?

One Room Challenge: Week 5

One Room Challenge week 5

Please note! The above photo is NOT the paint color. It’s the primer for dark colors and it’s more of a “what not to do” photo. See below for full explanation.

As you know, One Room Challenge has been extended an extra week and we couldn’t be happier for the extra time! We realized that we might have been a little ambitious when it came to our design plan, but go big or go home! We’ve completed all the moldings and paneling and it looks pretty amazing! See our tutorial here from Week 4. Of course, it takes a bit of time to complete the whole process from cutting, to installation, to caulking, but it will save you loads! Not to mention the difference it makes in a room: wall paneling completely transformed the space. The room seems so much larger and regal. Though, it’s not too difficult to improve from where we started!

November Book Club: Eccentric Glamour

Eccentric Glamour

To start off your holiday season, we’ve chosen something a bit lighter, a book to make you laugh! Do you love to wear funky hats or your great-Aunt’s costume jewelry? Or have you always wanted to wear those orange palazzo pants, but just didn’t have the confidence? After reading this, you might just GO for it! Eccentric Glamour by Simon Doonan tells you to do just that. As the Creative Director of NYC’s Barneys, he has loads of fashion experience (and opinion)! His frank and irreverent way of writing will make you laugh and shake your head, while you figure out your own signature style and read short, funny interviews with eccentric celebrities like Iris Apfel. Life’s too short to not wear what makes you happy, gives you confidence, and that little bit of “something else” – an aura of timeless allure. Follow along with us @larsbookclub and tell us what you think! We’ll have a mid-month post with questions and artwork, so stay tuned for that. Enjoy!
