Friday Favorites - Thanksgiving Edition 2023

November 17, 2023


Happy Friday friends.


I can't believe that Thanksgiving will be here in less than a week.  I've been busy planning and getting everything ready since I will be hosting Thanksgiving this year.  

I will be making turkey breast, sausage stuffing, and corn pudding muffins are always a big hit.  I'm still trying to figure out what we'll have for an appetizer.

These recipes can be found here and Kitty's corn pudding recipe can be found at her blog here.  Thanks, Kitty for this recipe as my family loves this dish.

Yesterday on the Today show they had many all-star chefs sharing their recipes and tips for Thanksgiving.  You can read that post here.

At the beginning of the month, Sephora had a big sale on makeup and many products.  I took advantage of that sale and bought some Christmas gifts and makeup for myself.  

I had many sales associates help me with my shopping list.  

I bought this high-end mascara from Yves Saint Laurent in a blue color found here.  I love the pop of blue for my lashes and it'll be nice to wear for the holidays.  

I found this blue eyeliner from Sephora and it goes nicely with the mascara.  

I also took advantage of sales at the Gap Factory store.  I bought this sweater for the holidays and winter.  I also bought a light green sweater, and a black turtleneck top.

I bought these faux leather pants on sale.  They will look perfect with my winter sweaters.

I love how comfortable these high rise universal legging jeans are.  They look great with sneakers and boots.

I will be doing a lot of food shopping this weekend for Thanksgiving.  I'll also be getting the dining room table ready and any cleaning that I need to do.  

I hope you have a happy Friday and weekend.  Wishing you a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving.
