Coffee Conversations

Happy Friday! It’s currently 55º outside and I couldn’t be happier! I try not to wish seasons away, but man am I ready for the fall weather. According to the forecast, today starts the trend toward cooler temperatures! We’ve got some friends coming over for dinner this evening and then our agenda is pretty darn empty for the weekend.

I’ve been working all week planning holiday products and gifting for Elisabeth Ashlie! It’s a little hard to get into that mindset, but I’m also very excited for what we have planned this year. Until then, you can shop our Fall Collection.

This sweatshirt arrived this week and I may not wear anything else for the next week. It is so cozy! I love that it’s on the lightweight side, so I don’t start sweating as soon as I’m moving around in it.

‘Tis the season to watch Gilmore Girls, which I’ve been doing the last few days. I watched it for the first time 2 years ago and loved it, so I’m back for round two. I think it’s one of those shows, like The Office or Friends, that I can watch over and over again and enjoy it a little more each time. I love having it on in the background when I’m working or getting ready for the day!

I’ve officially gotten Mike hooked on Native Deodorant now, too! I got him the Eucalyptus & Mint and the travel-sized Citrus & Herbal Musk (his favorite). They both smell so good, I want to use them!

If you haven’t grabbed this pocket tee yet, they’re not 2 for $14! I have three colors – they wash well and are a great basic to have for layering under jackets and cardigans this season.

I’m in the mood to bake something this weekend, maybe something festive like ginger snaps or pumpkin bread! I’m not much of a pumpkin fan, but I like it in the occasional baked good.

Have a great weekend!

    Someone else recently commented that they always feel like watching Gilmore Girls in the fall! Thanks to your advice, I started using Native and so far I have to say I am impressed with it. It is definitely not like any of the other natural deodorants I've tried. I am worried come summer, but for now, I'm sticking with it.
