What I'm Grateful For

Hello, hello! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday surrounded by loved ones and delicious food! I am in Boston with my dad's side of the family and we had a really nice, lowkey Thanksgiving day yesterday. My brother, aunt, and I ran the Turkey Trot in the morning, and then we just cooked all day, had our feast, and then went over to my cousins' house for dessert and games! We played lots of Scrabble, which of course I couldn't have been happier about, and overall it was just a really nice day with family.

Gift Guide: Mom

gift guide for mom gift ideas fran acciardo holiday 2021

Welcome to the Gift Guide for Mom! I find this particular gift guide to be one of the more challenging to put together, because everyone's mom is unique, and it can be hard to think of something she will use and love that she doesn't already have. After asking my own mom for help on this gift guide, and of course, putting Elizabeth to work, too (kidding, kind of ;) I ended up creating this versatile assortment of gifts I think could be great for any mom! I am very happy with how this turned out; I hope you love it too. 

This Week's Top 10: My Weekend, New Fave Cocktail, NYC Holiday Vibes

1. Happy Sunday!! I missed posting this yesterday because I had a bit of a crazy night on Thursday and simply couldn't do anything on Friday, and then yesterday I wrote this and just forgot to hit publish! Thursday was totally worth it though- I had dinner with two of my aunts and then went to the Bergdorf Holiday Party which was fabulous; The Rockettes put on a show, the Veuve was flowing, I chatted with Linda Fargo, and got a photo with Julianne Moore! #dreamscometrue -- see my TikTok of the night here!


2.  One of my favorite things to do in the city is spend a Saturday alone, so yesterday I made a few plans for myself, which included visiting The Met for the first time! I had such a lovely day. The Lexicon of Fashion exhibit was absolutely fabulous!


3. The new Adele album is, as we all expected, incredible. If you haven't listened yet, you must!

Taking a brief break from the gift guides to share some pretty things I've recently found. All of these products have been added to the shop page already, but (1) I feel like the shop page is often overlooked/forgotten about, and (2) these things are really too good not to draw a little extra attention to.
