The Best of October

Upcoming News: IHOD Holiday Gift Guide – Advertise + Nominate

I am giddy excited to share with you all a sneak preview of this year’s Holiday Gift Guide!
Now, I will have you know, although we are crazy about the Christmas season at our house, we try our best to wait till after Thanksgiving to haul out the holly. However, the goal of this guide is to promote handmade and small business artists and shops, so I like to launch the gift guide before you all go spend  your money on Black Friday;)

This year, I have a spectacular all star line up of guest contributors sharing their DIY, Recipe, and Styling tutorials to help encourage you to make your Christmas a personal one. I am almost finished curating the themed spreads that will cover everyone on your list this year. There are some ridiculously cool finds I can’t wait to share!

Here is where you come in. I have a few spots left for product features, so I want you to nominate your favorite shops or send me your favorite finds for little ones, girlfriends, men, and family members. I am not officially taking submissions due to the time constraint, but please feel free to leave your suggestions, nominations, and leads in the comment section below! (Tip: white backgrounds for products and high quality images needed.)

Also, there are advertising options in the gift guide with three size options available at affordable rates (starting at $40). If you think your shop or business would be a great fit for the guide, please email me for the advertisement information with the title “Holiday Gift Guide Ad Inquiry,” with a link to your site included in the email. You can view last years guide here. The projected viewings for this years guide will is a noteable one!

Can’t wait to share. The launch will be November 12th! Thanks for all your support. 
Love, Anna

How we wore it: Aubergine Trousers

If you remember this recent For a Fraction post, you’ll remember how fab those Burgundy pants were. It inspired Sarah and I to do a back to back style post of how we would wear the look. Except they are more aubergine than burdgundy;) 
Isn’t Sarah a beauty? She has such a fun personality to boot. For her outfit details, visit her blog, Wearing it on My Sleeves (one of my daily reads!)
My outfit details: Sweater: c/o Deloom, Cords: True NYC (similar), Tote: Mimi Boutique, Shoes: Francesca’s (similar), Sunnies: H&M
Did you all have a good weekend?
We were outside 90% of ours, and enjoyed the best month atlanta has to offer:)
P.S. Can’t wait to announce all the giveaway winners for Deloom and InPink tomorrow! Last day to enter:)
