November Recap

Truly can’t believe I’m sharing my november 2018 recap. Or that December kicks off tomorrow!  

Louella Reese November 2018 Recap


Anthropologie Corduroys 
Pommed Heart Sweater 
Madewell Suede Transport Tote
Madewell Fair Isle Sweater
Jade Roller 
American Eagle Fair Isle Sweater
American Eagle Corduroy Hat


Annie Sloan chalk paint and wax to FINALLY finish the dresser from our wedding. We will be using it as storage in our kitchen and as a mini bar top. I’ll be sure to share soon! 


Bentonville, Arkansas – One of my favorite, most unexpected trips thus far! I’m not going to spill too many details right now as I will be sharing a full travel diary Wednesday. So stay tuned! 

Lake Norman – We spent four days at the lake over Thanksgiving break. Which was absolutely beautiful as fall was in full affect – check out this snap to see what I mean. Where did you spend Thanksgiving?


Lean on Pete – A little rougher than the description on Rotten Tomatoes or the one you’ll find at RedBox but overall, it’s a pretty good movie. Joshua and I both enjoyed and would recommend it. A great option when you aren’t interested in watching a rom-com, scary movie, or comedy. 


Cinnamon Rice Pudding – this was my first time making rice pudding and it is surprisingly delicious! I’ll be sharing more on this soon!

All of the same shows from last month, again– This Is Us, Grey’s Anatomy, and The Foster’s (currently on season three). Noah Centineo has finally made his appearance AND now I don’t know how I feel about him. Go figure haha. What are y’all watching?

Take a look back a previous monthly recaps here

    Annie Sloan chalk paint is the best! It can make any piece of furniture look SO much better!

    • Completely agree! I am so glad I finally bought it – learned my lesson, will never buy any other brand of chalk paint!
