Lately 11/17/2016 and Gifts Under $50

gifts and stocking stuffer ideas under $50
Gifting: Whether you're looking for affordable gifts to give your girlfriends, some cute stocking stuffers, or just a cute but inexpensive idea, I'm sharing my favorite finds under $50! Out of all of these things, I personally have/use the Rose Spray, Curling Iron, 2017 Calendar, Eye Gels, Creamy Concealer, Champagne Bears, Cashmere Shampoo, Striped Tee, Illuminating Palette, Candle, and nail polish.
Also, if you have any specific gift guide requests, please let me know! I have many more to come!

Drinking:  This is the Tuscan Gardener from The Ritz-Carlton Lake Oconee's Gaby's by the Lake  restaurant. It is made with gin, St.Germain, grapefruit, fresh basil, and herb simple syrup. Definitely going to try and recreate this one. It was delish!
Loving: I posted this to Snapchat the other night when I was polishing my silver...this is the first time I've done this since moving (can you say #lazy?!). I got SO many questions about which silver polish I use. I use this one. It's inexpensive and works like a charm. My mom has always used it so that is why I use it!

Sale: Club Monaco is having a killer extra 30% off of sale (my favorite store)! Use code WINTER16 at checkout. I have this sweater dress and the quality is incredible! I wore it the other night and got so many compliments! One of my favorite cashmere sweater wraps/cardigans is on major sale, too! It comes in multiple colors. I really want this boiled cashmere sweater-- boiled cashmere is my FAVORITE!

Sale II: Be sure to check back next week late Thursday and all day Friday. I'll have all the black Friday sales as well as my favorite picks/deals that I think are the best. I'll include the retailer, the sale, and the promo code (if needed).

Watching: Westworld. It's a sci-fi show on HBO. It's only 7 episodes in and it is SO good. I really like sci-fi things in general, so this was right up my alley, but it's also just a really well-done show. The cinematography is gorgeous and the set designs are really amazing, not to mention the actors and actresses play their parts really well!

Watching II: The official Beauty and the Beast trailer launched this week and I am SO excited! Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Disney movies and I just love Emma Watson. The trailer looks amazing!

Pittsburgh-ing: I'm not a huge fan of Sienna Mercato's Emporio (it's the first-floor meatball place on Penn Ave downtown!), but it's fun to go to with friends because of the casual, laid back atmosphere. I usually nix it when people suggest it, but a few weeks ago we were in line on the No Wait app and it ended up being quicker for Emporio, so we decided to go there. And I am so. glad. They had this turkey meatball dish that was out of this world. The dish had turkey meatballs mixed with stuffing and cranberries over a bed of mashed potatoes and corn and topped off with gravy. The serving was so huge that we shared it. Do not walk, run. It's apparently taken off the menu when November ends, but I'd really love it if they kept it throughout the winter! If you love this kind of twist on traditional Thanksgiving, I also recommend checking out Mad Mex's Gobblerito, which is a Thanksgiving burrito and it is soooooo good!
Wearing: I just got these suede booties and I love them. They're simple and classic and the quality for the price is outstanding. I love the almond toe-- not quite rounded, not quite pointed. I've been getting so much wear out of them and couldn't recommend them more!

Listening: We are into mid-November and there is all of 1 song in my November playlist. This month has kicked my butt in terms of being busy, so I'm going to forego a playlist, but I'll embed my Christmas playlist next week (it's good)! But for now, I have been loving this Closer cover!!
Quoting: See more of my favorites, here.
