Happy Friday! I can’t believe how quickly November is passing us by. At this time in two weeks, Thanksgiving will be OVER. How crazy is that?

On my agenda for the weekend? A birthday party, a double date (complete with pizza and beer), and lots and lots of laundry. I also have promised myself I’m going to sit down a read a bunch of articles I’ve been bookmarking for the last few weeks. This week felt so frenetic, and I’m looking forward to a slower pace for the next few days.

Here are some of my favorite links of the week:

+ I’m guest posting today on Aspiring Kennedy! Lauren recently started the Friday Faces series, giving you an inside peek to bloggers’ real lives. Be sure to check it out! There are a couple more shots of my home office included.
+ New blog alert! I came across the blog Young Sophisticates this week, and so far, am really enjoying their posts. The blog is a mix of fashion images, product roundups (often with looks for less), interviews, with some interiors mixed in. Check it out!
+ Via Jacquelyn, I found this recipe for butternut squash orzo. With bacon. Sounds SO delicious.
+ How do French women achieve that effortless, feminine style? During my visit to Paris, I was in awe of how chic French women were. This post dissects the je ne sais quoi.
+ Erika featured the lovely Naomi from Design Manifest this week, and her post on Boho Glam was jaw dropping. I loved the images she curated…and the fact that she so accurately described my own aesthetic.
+ I’m sure many of you saw this, but I kept coming back to Blair’s collection of Tahoe outfits. How inspiring is this for the cold months ahead?
+ Crystalin whipped a batch of crispy peanut butter cups. YUM. I love the idea of making a bunch of these for gifts this holiday season, versus the usual bag of cookies.
+ J.Crew’s gift guide is here. See anything YOU want? (This, this and this make my list for sure)
+ Another great blog I discovered last week: A House in the Hills. This week alone, Sarah shared a great recipe for roasted Brussels sprouts with fig balsamic vinegar, and a closet reorganization (I’m eager to check out her hanger rec!).

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
