last week i walked along the 30+ block virginia beach boardwalk at dusk, the one evening of the season people are allowed to cruise through the annual light festival on foot.  i loved it.  giant, multi-story animated light sculptures as far as the eye could see.  one for each of the twelve days of christmas!  a couple elves and sugarplum fairies, a lonely looking menorah.  appropriately themed nautical bits: sharks ready to attack, fish spitting water in an arc you walk right under, santa on a pirate ship?  why not!  oh, and my favorite- a curiously placed twinkling tyrannosaurus rex, without so much as a candy cane in his tiny claw!  they're the same every year, and i'm stoked every time i see them.

tomorrow morning i'm headed south to a much warmer beach for holiday hugging, the world's most delicious bagels, and palm trees adorned with twinkle lights.  i've got a serious thing for those.  i want lots of holiday kitsch this year, and i want it bad!  have a very lovely thanksgiving, friends.  i know i will.

j. cute

i generally stay away from j. crew's website because I'M NOT MADE OF MONEY, though i do feverishly tear through the catalog when it lands in my mailbox every few weeks (no one really makes purchases from paper catalogs!  only collages!).  but tonight i saw that center image floating around the internet and clickity-clicked on over.  ugh, so good right?  i'm divulging an embarrassing secret by telling you that i'm almost completely packed for my ten-day vacation; the one that doesn't commence until next tuesday.  but the point of all of this?  those are my colors, dude.  copious layering options in these very colors- the salmon (ew?) coat, red shoes, shrunken blazer- all of this is in my to-go pile!  all ready for delta to lose my suitcase in crazy, home alone style thanksgiving transit!  11 more cute looks here.  (feel free to buy this for me, in navy, while you're at it.)

surely you know how delicious babycakes cupcakes are and how adorable their little broome street nook is.  i put in a few good vegan years in my early twenties, and though i now eat every egg in sight, vegan baking still excites me!  i gave my mom this bookfor her birthday last month, and yesterday i rolled up my sleeves to bake some gluten-free donuts for her poor, bread-deprived soul.  truly just as delicious as the back dustcover touts!  this book rules.  vegan and gluten-free recipes for every sweet treat under the sun, photos of cute bowtie-clad ladies, and witty commentary to boot.  pineapple upside down cake's next on the agenda!

adventures in thematic eating

i'm laid up in bed with one of those colds that has you feeling nauseous; it's been trying to fully attack for an entire week now, and this morning it has won the battle and i'm officially sick.  the rational part of my brain says, "hey- i bet frolicking through that crazy new york city snowstorm for hours last saturday did this to you!"  the other weird part of my brain, however, is certain the pumpkin did it.  THE PUMPKIN.  skinny lattes of the steamy and iced varieties, muffins, cupcakes, bagels, an intimidating gluten-free birthday cake, frozen yogurt, a gas station donut?!  i mean, i didn't eat it all at once; i promise there was some sort of moderation in there.  but maybe not enough.  absolutely, unequivocally, no more pumpkin... until thanksgiving.  i swear, guys.  now pass those pumpkin-scented tissues.
oh, and for the record, though i tore across town to buy peppermint-flavored everything once i heard it was in stock at trader joe's, i sent most of it to a joe's-less boy in florida.  i quite literally CANNOT even go there.

already!  inundated with christmas decorations and coffee cups and commercials and  SHOP FOR EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST!  stresses me out!  (although i did just buy my first christmas gift this morning; the advertising totally worked on me.)  but!  november's only just begun, so i'm going to dress pilgrimish on the daily, find the world's best pumpkin pie recipe to impress the table with on thanksgiving, and give you a little incentive to buy one last thing for yourself before you empty those piggy banks for loved ones only.  code THANKS gets you 30% off everything in the vintage shop all month.  because seriously, thanks.  you guys are z'best.

my turn

now that it's actually fall & winter and i'm ready to layer, let's look at these so-five-minutes-ago images from rodarte for opening ceremony's lookbook again.  you know how i do.  i've stared at these for 2.5 months and they're still toothache-inducing.  HURTS SO GOOD.

can someone please teleport me back to monday at approximately 4:15pm?  to the land of rainbows and zebras, pumpkin cupcakes and cute cupcake-eating boys?  if so, there's a box of confectionery magic with your name on it.  THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.
