Hello, October! We’re so excited to see you. It’s time for spiced cider, falling leaves, and the hunt for the perfect pumpkin. What’s not to love? Sure, the weather is about to get wicked… but we’ll just use that as an excuse to buy a cozy new sweater. (Maybe this one?) As with all Fridays, we want to start the day off with a little inspiration:

One of our favorite online shops, LISA SAYS GAH, is doing something really special for the month of October. In honor of their friend (Amanda Niello) who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 29, they opened up a Boob Shop. 15%-100% of proceeds from the charity shop will be donated to the UCSF breast cancer research foundation, where Amanda is getting treatment. Shopping for a cause… we like it.

We have to admit, we’re super intrigued by this Green Chile Cocktail Recipe we found on HonestlyYUM. It sounds refreshing and unique… which, in our bar, equals the perfect beverage.

To go along with that cocktail? We’ll be whipping up Emily Schuman’s at-home ceviche. Ceviche seems like an intimidating dish, but she makes it sound easy! Check out the recipe here.

New shop alert! Refined is filled with elegant, sophisticated clothing, decor, and gifts. Defined as a lifestyle brand, this shop is quickly becoming our latest obsession.

Fall is a time to get comfortable and cozy. We’ll be using Elle Decor’s 18 tips for a cozy bedroom as we get our homes ready for the new season.

Finally, you likely saw our graphic designer’s major office makeover earlier in the week. Did you know it’s part of a contest? We’re competing with 7 other bloggers in the #AmazingAnastasia styling contest. If Julie wins, $1000 will be donated to Susan G. Komen. You can vote here!
