1. Happy Halloween weekend!! I am so excited about this weekend; Joe is visiting me and we are going to the Nets game tonight, and then a Halloween party tomorrow night! Hopefully, we get a fun photo in our costumes. My costume arrived yesterday and did not look as I hoped it would on me, so I'm quite interested to find out myself what I'll end up wearing tomorrow...

2. This morning I shared my outfit on my IG story- I am wearing this super cute lilac and white check pullover today. I found it on RTR, I couldn't believe it! I got my usual size but I'd recommend sizing down, it's pretty roomy.

3. If you want to try Rent the Runway, you can get 40% off your first shipment if you click here! I have had a membership for years and while I don't use it every month, I always have a great experience when I do. Lately, I've been in a shopping mood, just wanting new things to wear, and so being able to pick out 4 high-end pieces of clothing for just $100 without commitment to them is an amazing deal in my mind. This time I order this coat (so cute), the pullover I mentioned above, this skirt that I might wear for Thanksgiving, and this cute black bag- been needing something like this!

4. Ok similarly, I rejoined ClassPass last week and I am SO happy I did. I finally got to try Solidcore, and I absolutely loved it. Such a hard workout that I actually enjoyed! I used to do ClassPass in college but then I sort of stopped working out when Covid hit, so I'm really happy to be getting back into it now. Unfortunately, classes in the city are *so* expensive, but if you use this link I think we both can get some free credits!

5. Last week I finally tried American Bar in the West Village and it totally lived up to the hype. Great vibes, great drinks, and great food! Their Negroni is probably the best I've ever had, and I ordered the spicy lobster pasta and loved it.

6. I think this dress is so cute and would be perfect for Thanksgiving!

This dress... OMG. I cannot believe it's under $200!! I am putting myself on the notify list because it is so gorgeous and would be perfect for Christmas or something (as if I have any fancy plans)

7. I listened to my first audiobook this week!! I listened to Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney on Audible. I was supposed to read this by Tuesday for my book club and totally got a late start, so I figured I'd just try out the audiobook version to save some time (I am a very distracted/slow reader). I loved the format and the book itself is so captivating- it's a thriller with some major spooky vibes, perfect for this time of year!

8. I shared some other books on my IG stories this week too: I am currently reading Golden Girl by Elin Hilderbrand (love her), and up next I am going to read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah- I have heard amazing things. Actually one of my favorite books ever was The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah (wrote a whole blog post on it here!) so I'm really looking forward to The Nightingale.

Up next after that: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover, A Special Place for Women by Laura Hankin, and Apples Never Fall by Liane Moriarty for my book club! When I am going to find time to read all of these I have no idea, but looking forward to it nonetheless! Have heard they're all great.

9. Mango is having an amazing fall sale right now. Here is everything I ordered!

10. Hope you all have a safe and fun Halloween weekend! Here are some easy last-minute ideas if you're still figuring out your costume!
