Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.

Henry Van Dyke

From our table to yours, Happy Thanksgiving.

FornasettiI am all about yummalicious-smelling goodness in my house. Especially around the holidays. And this is one combination I am excited about — Thyme, Lavender, Birch, Incense and Cedarwood.

Fornasetti's La Chiave Nero Diffusing Sphere is an essential oil-based diffuser fragranced with the label's signature Otto scent. Pour in a little of the liquid to the handcrafted ceramic sphere to perfume your home for three to six months. I love the design, dual-sided key and lock featuring opera singer and muse Lina Cavalieri.

Yes, this is exactly what I need right now. A fresh take on fall.

International Lead Makeup Stylist Jane Richardson shows us how to create a look using products from the NARS fall 2015 color collection. Dramatic smoky shimmering brown and golden ombré eyes and iconic red lips. Stunning!

I had my heart set on fur sneakers this year.

I even thought I landed on the pair.

However, I couldn't get over a few details, so I moved on. Until, I stumbled upon Emilio Pucci's lamb fur and leather snow boots. Though, I swear they remind me more of a sneaker. Patent leather laces with metal details, rubber soles. Yes, I think these will do!

I've never been a fan of Halloween. Not even when my kids were younger. 

It might have something to do with the fact that I am terrible at decorating for it. And dressing up — so not my thing.

However, if I were going to, say, a masked ball, I might have to pull out this little number. Ooooh, that hair! Well, and the mask. After a busy week of clients — packing for trips, dressing for events and fall shopping — I think I'll just fall into my chaise lounge. Oh, right...that is after the lacrosse tournament, tending to puppy and ensuring my daughter makes her Halloween events.

No rest for the weary.
