I highly recmomend these sneakers.

Scene from Desk 

I hope you are all having a wonderful week. We have had some incredible weather this week, so I love my long walks with Henry. I'm soaking it up because Saturday night gave me a taste of the real cold. I wore ballet flats over to our friend's house, and we walked home around 11pm because they live in our neighborhood just a block over, and my feet were SO cold within the 5-minute walk. 

Right now is busy season with work. I'm basically working 24/7. My mind, desktop, and house are messy, but I love it. 

My mom and I are headed to the McCauley and Dean offices today for our last facial treatments, which is exciting. We have both been so pleased with our results already. I'll do a full post with details in a few weeks. 

I can't believe next week is Thanksgiving. Do you all love the food? I do! My favorite is green bean casserole, and a close second is stuffing! My sister comes to town on Saturday and is staying the whole week, so I'm excited about that! 

My sister and I are headed to DC in two-ish weeks for a long weekend. We plan to relax, shop, eat, and drink! One morning, we are just going to relax, do face masks, and order room service, and I think we are going to spend a day just shopping around. I crave shopping in person because we truly have very little in Pittsburgh. DC has *good* shopping. I am so excited to just pop in and out of stores in Georgetown, which is my favorite, but I also want to head to City Center to stop into some of the designer boutiques. 

Wearing: The coziest robe there ever was. Truly. If you don't take my word for it, go read the reviews. They're all spot on. I would suggest bookmarking it in case it goes on sale sometime soon... wink. 

Are you following me on the LikeToKnowIt app?! You can shop all of my outfits, favorite finds, and more in the app. I am constantly updating it with the latest! You can also access all of my posts, here, if you don't use LTK!

Sale: Besides sales, I have quite a few active discount codes I wanted to remind you of! 

McCauley and Dean Aesthetics (skincare): 20% off with code SUMMERWIND20 (they ship!!), if you book an in-office treatment and mention me, you get 10% off! 

Rifle Paper Co.: 25% off with code SYDNEY25

J.McLaughlin: 20% off with code SYDNEY20 (ENDS TODAY!!!!!)

Dermstore: code SUMMERWIND; discount varies by brand (Augustinus Bader is usually included!!)

Tula: SYDNEY, currently 15% off but varies at different times of the year

Just a note that I don't get anything extra by sharing these coupon codes and am not required to share them. They are just courtesies the brand extends to me to share with you all! I encourage brands to provide me with codes, as we all obviously want to save as much as possible when we shop and these codes provide me with something exclusive to offer to you all! 

 I'm loving Lessons in Chemistry on Apple TV. I had no idea what to expect but it's so great. I am enamored with Bri Larson, who plays the main character. She is simply stunning and the retro wardrobe and hairstyles constnaly have me drooling. I am also currently keeping up with Southern Charm and The Golden Bachelor. I am enjoying both! 
Loving: I need to order a new roll of this paper as I just used the last of it. It is one of my favorites! 

Such adorable combs that make a cute stocking stuffer! Love this Apres sweater so much! I'm watching Lessons in Chemistry and it has me so into 1950s/60s style (as if I wasn't already) and these sunglasses are calling my name. I have and love these sneakers (beyond comfortable and lots of arch support) both for intense workouts and just walking, and this new colorway is SO good. Keeping an eye out to see if this bag goes on sale during the cyber sales! 

Amazon Rec: Loving these ornaments that I got. They are the most beautiful colors and give me vintage vibes. You can find more of my Amazon favorites, here on my Amazon page where I am constantly updating it with all of my finds and top picks from home, beauty, fashion, and more!

Amazon Rec II: This is a real gem of an Amazon find. A trio of velvet slightly padded headbands that are so comfortable and inexpensive. I'm so pleased! 

Smelling: This candle smells wonderful. It smells so bright and fresh like a spa. It kind of reminds me of the scent of an Aveda spa. 

Pittsburgh: I went to the new Alta Via downtown location with some girlfriends last week and it was fabulous. The food is just wonderful and the atmosphere is just as good. I am so glad they opened this location because Fox Chapel was always a bit of a hike from the south hills!
