by - Friday, November 27, 2020

It's Black Friday which means your mailbox is overflowing with promotional emails and messages to entice you to buy now! For this week's Love List, I wanted to share some interesting links and also my thoughts on what is worth spending on.

The prettiest holiday pots. Package them up with paperwhite bulbs for a festive gift!

Hands down, this is the cutest butler's pantry

Say yes to hygge this Christmas

My Favourite Things

my favourite things, favorite things 2020

  1. One of the best lighting deals around. This wall sconce is currently just $42 CAD and the enamel shade comes in a variety of shades (the forest green is SO handsome!). Use it over a bathroom mirror like we did in our powder room or have a pair over bedside tables
  2. Every time I post a photo of this shield mirror in our living room I get asked about it. It's modern yet classic and more interesting than a typical round or rectangular mirror
  3. We've had the Dyson V10 cordless vacuum for a few years now and it lives up to the hype. US friends, grab it at 30% off right now!
  4. Bite Beauty is my go-to lipstick brand and my favourite gift to give to my sisters! Their lipsticks contain natural ingredients, the colours are saturated and long-lasting. I treated myself to this limited edition lip crayon set and all 4 colours go well with my skin tone. 
  5. Minted carries beautiful art but this print in particular, Trumpets At Noon, works everywhere. I've hung it in our living room, our powder room, and in my office and it brings a crisp edge, no matter the decor. Get it at 15% off with code BF2020
  6. I recently upgraded my phone to an iPhone 11 Pro and treated myself to a new phone case. This one (featuring a plaid design by me) is the best phone case I've ever had. I opted for the "tough case" version which features a silicone liner that provides added safety. It's still slim enough to slip in my back pocket but feels substantial and well protected. Buttons are easily accessible too. Get it at 30% off, no code needed
  7. I've featured the Riviera Counter Stools we have at our cottage many a time but they are worth repeating. Buying anything from Serena & Lily is a bit of an investment (especially for us Canadians!) but their quality is worth it. These counter stools look just as good as the day I bought them five years ago. Serena & Lily currently has their best sale of the year with 20% off and free US shipping. Use code TOGETHER
  8. Believe me when I say this is the holy grail of coffee mugs. The Le Creuset Stoneware Mug is the perfect size, shape, and weight for us coffee connoisseurs. I have these mugs in Meringue, the loveliest neutral shade - its the colour of a delicious latte! I've given these as gifts and people love them the more they use them.
  9. Every traditional home needs a blue and white ginger jar. This Swallowtail Ginger Jar from Williams-Sonoma is the pride of my collection. I love it's scale (14.5" high!) and how versatile it is. I've displayed it as is, filled with hydrangeas in the summer, or magnolia leaves in the winter. Currently 40% off on the US Williams Sonoma site
  10. I am very particular about my pens and Muji Gel Ink Ballpoint Pens are the only ones I use. Seriously - I have a pencil case where I store my pens and keep them away from the thieving hands of my 11-year-old, lol! These make a great stocking stuffer
  11. This wall sconce from Rejuvenation was one of the things I really wanted for our home. It hangs above our garage door and has great curb appeal. For a single lightbulb, it casts a great amount of light. Buy it at 20% off. No code needed.
  12. and 
  13. You cannot go wrong with these pillows. The Pyne Hollyhock pattern is a classic and brings traditional, feminine style wherever you place it. And Tonic Living is my source for every day and seasonal cushion covers. They also have THE BEST pillow inserts. Their faux down inserts are the perfect mix of soft and structured. Trust me, you won't buy any other inserts once you try these!
  14. The Delta Faucet Trinsic pull down kitchen sprayer faucet is everything you want in a faucet. Its matte black finish doesn't show fingerprints. It's MagnaTite docking holds the sprayer in place every time. And the single lever and swivel spout are easy to operate, even when your hands are a mess. I look forward to using it at our cottage and think I should just go ahead and get one for our home too! Currently 38% off.
  15. You know you're an adult when you put glass mixing bowls on your Love List. These bowls are hard working member of our kitchen. I use them for mise en place when I'm baking or to serve up sides. They nest and stay organized and look pretty even when they're not in use.
  16. The Schlage Sense Smartlock Touchscreen Deadbolt is one of the best updates you can make to your home. Not only does it look attractive on our front door but it's made our house feel safer. It notifies me when it's unlocked, I can monitor it remotely, and it is so much easier than dealing with keys.
  17. These Old Navy joggers are my absolute favourite lounge pants. They're comfortable, breathable, and come in many colours. Get it today at 50% off.
  18. This Cosori Air Fryer has become one of our most used appliances. It's a good size for our family of three and handles chicken, frozen food, and fish with ease. I especially love it for making Grilled Salmon Teriyaki - so much less mess and splatter, and the salmon gets perfectly cooked throughout!
  19. There's a reason NARS Blush in Orgasm is a best seller: it works on every complexion! It looks great against my tan in summer and brings shimmer to my paler skin in winter. Makes a great gift for any woman in your life who wants to feel pretty
  20. I feel like many of us are on the constant search for the best white dishware. The Open Kitchen by Williams Sonoma Dishware Collection is as close to perfect as I have found and they are very affordable. We have had our set for at least six years and they are still going strong. They don't chip easily but it's easy to get replacements if you need to. 
I hope you've enjoyed this Love List of My Favourite Things. Whether you're shopping for others or for yourself this week, I hope it's given you ideas!
