And now on to the favorites in today's video...

My first favorite is the beautiful Cora watch in koa and rose gold from Jord Wood Watches. I chose this watch for it's beautiful dark wood and rose gold coloring. Lovely for autumn, feminine yet with a masculine touch. I love this watch!




BEB Quilt Treasures made these pretty sister quilts for my daughters. They are so fun! I loved working with Beth and Eliot Bailey throughout the whole process.



18 Rabbits Granola pecan, almond & coconut This is my favorite store-bought granola on the market. So delicious!


Krusteaz pumpkin Belgian waffles... speaking of delicious... these waffles are a tasty fall treat! Please note: because these are frozen, I do not have a link to share for you, but found a Krusteaz pumpkin spice pancake mix for those who want to try it.



SoCal Curls heated headband in navy floral
This beautiful picture is from SoCal Curls website. Please look out for my future SoCal Curls tutorial. I really enjoy using this heated headband to create beachy waves. Simply heat the headband for 30 seconds in the microwave, wrap your hair around the headband and wear it for 30 minutes or more.


How to Dress Like a Princess: The Secret to Kate's Wardrobe by Claudia Joseph. This is a fascinating look into what makes The Duchess of Cambridge's style so timeless. In the book, Ms. Joseph also interviews my mother-in-law, about her shoe designing career, as her ballet flats are a favorite of the royals!


Bath & Bodyworks Toasted Vanilla Chai foaming hand wash. The scent of this hand wash is warm and delightful. It's truly a treat to wash my hands with this delightful soap.



News
Nikki Moreno from Inspired by Nikki shares Lessons from Madame Chic as one of her October Favorites. Thank you, Nikki!

Take my new eCourse on the ten-item wardrobe. With over an hour of never-before-seen video instruction, notes and quizzes, you will feel prepared to create your own ten-item wardrobe. For those of you who already do the ten-item wardrobe, this course will keep you on track and provide further inspiration. The course is self-paced and includes a lively comment section with other ten-item wardrobe enthusiasts. Enjoy!



Booklist has reviewed Lessons from Madame Chic:
Scott spent six months in Paris in 2001 as part of a foreign-exchange program. What she observed and learned fills this book. Many of these style secrets—for instance, how to eat and what to wear—can be found elsewhere, but Scott’s 20 tips cover much more than the traditional diet-and-exercise and style-and-beauty. Extremely readable short chapters include recaps of the major points discussed in them, and those points include always looking presentable, realizing that clutter is not chic, cultivating your mind, and living life as a formal affair. Each of those lessons features tidbits Scott picked up from her two Parisian families, here called the Chics and the Bohemians. Throughout, two words appear most often—quality and passion. --Barbara Jacobs



Thank you to Jord Wood Watches for hosting this great giveaway! Today I would love to know... what are some of your fall favorites? Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you on Monday.

Hi Jennifer, I have to admit that I almost fell out of my chair. This reveal adds even more class (and restraint) to the way you handled the rude comments about your new fall/winter ten-item-wardrobe. Thank you for introducing me to Jord Wood Watches as I was not familiar with them and they are beautiful. Love and prayers to your wonderful family.

LOVE the Jord wood watches. I've been eyeing wood watches for some time and now you share this brand which is beautiful. Thanks for the opportunity to learn more about Jord and to possibly win!

The girls' quilts are so cute! I'm in the process of making a quilt for my newest granddaughter so I have a great appreciation for quilts.

You really must make your own granola. It is SO delish. A good one is on the website: jennycancook.com. She's got some videos that are so much fun to watch and her recipes are all excellent.

Fall favorites:
*Burning candles. I'm going to make some beeswax/coconut oil ones very soon. I can't do strong scents so this is what I like.
*Making no knead breads. See jennycancook.com again. She's got several knockout bread recipes that I've been trying. The cinnamon rolls too! YUM!

God bless you and your family. ~Jody

I just tried the 18 Rabbits granola and love it. I made some last year, but like this one better. Thank you for the recommendation! Always enjoy your posts. Looking forward to a video tour of your new home. 🏡

Hi, Jennifer! I am glad you all made it safely back home. I enjoyed your post and I have a friend who will love the Dress Like a Princess book for Christmas. I wanted to share a website with you in case you don't already know about it: http://www.neeseesdresses.com
It really reminds me of your style. Jan

Hello Jennifer,

Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway and thanks for sharing your favorites. I purchased some of your favorites at your recommendation.
My October Favorites include Jane Austen and the Folio Society! I have read three of Austen's novels, and they are all my favorites: "Pride and Prejudice" "Persuasion" and "Emma". I can read them over and over! I adore Austen's intelligence and her insight into the many varieties of human character. There is always one duplicitous character, and there is always a romance in each of these novels. My goal for the New Year is to read her other three full-length novels.
The Folio Society is a British company which publishes gorgeously illustrated, cloth-bound editions of classics of literature as well as non-fiction. The books are expensive, but over time, they add up to a wonderful library.

Warm best,
Alexandra
