Weekend Update: November 1


HOW IS IT NOVEMBER??? That is just crazy to me. We have two months left in the decade (wowowwow) and it's going to go by in a flash. Let's see.. 2010 I was going into college in a new state where I knew only one person, had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, left all my friends behind, moved away from home and was pretty unsure of myself! A lot can change in 10 years...



Anyway, today's weekend update will be a bit different because I didn't shop this week, was kind of away from my computer (very behind on YouTube lol) and honestly, just don't feel like a weekend update format today. So here was my week...

Monday I was in Disney World walking and sweating my ass off lol. Tuesday I was exhausted from Disney and dumbly went to work out. I've never felt more drained in my life! But I pulled myself together and ventured down to the LES to film a clip for Drink with James (coming out Monday) about TikTok.

Then Wednesday I put together a really fun surprise birthday day for Ashby and we did an Orange Theory class, went to lunch with a friend, got massages and booked a Drybar blowout! It was a really fun day. I think my love language is gift giving!! That night I met up with two girls that I work with and got our nails done at Paintbox! It was such a fun way to hang out and meet.

On Thursday Andrew worked from home and I caught up on a lot of stuff from the week, filmed a few TikToks (I know lol I know), and we had our first night with trick-or-treaters! It was fun because we also dressed up and the kids were so surprised!

Today I don't have anything on the agenda but I do have a lot of campaigns coming up this month that I need to prep and shoot for and a BIG pile of boxes I need to open, try on and put away. I've been avoiding them and it just keeps getting bigger.

Saturday we have Mike and Ashby's wedding shower then we'll head up that night to avoid the marathon madness on Sunday!! Is that all?? lol

But for real, just for a second, I want to talk about the holidays! Because they're basically here and I'm very excited but also anxious. It's busy season for sponsorships and campaigns, for holiday decor, gift guides, Christmas in NYC, travel, honeymoon (at least for me lol). It's going to be a crazy month.

As a way to say thank you, I want to give back to YOU guys these next two months and I have a few ideas and just to give you a heads up on what I'm thinking/have lined up...
--$500 GC to Home Goods
--T3 Curler
--Dudley Stephens fleece
--$1000 in credits (broken up to about 10 winners) to Prose
--A month free of Rent the Runway

What else would be a fun thing to give away??

So all of these I have currently ready to go, just need to start giving them away! Maybe we can do like a giveaway a week? Some will be here, some will be on Instagram. Some will be a surprise! So let's start this week with the T3 curler.  It's the whirl trio set (which I use and love!) To enter, just comment below with a thoughtful response of what you'd like to see from me in terms of holiday content. The more detailed/helpful the better! (bonus entries for commenting on this IG post when it's live!) Either leave your email or IG handle below so I can contact you.

I'll share every Friday the winner for the week! So be sure to check back here on the blog. Have a great weekend!

  1. I would love to see an off the radar thing to do in NYC at Christmas. My daughter wants to go at Christmas and when she’s a little older we plan to take her. I know all the traditional things but what about something awesome but a little unknown or off the beaten path.

  2. I love love love gift guides, it's a weakness of mine. Also, your Dudley Stevens comparison post was super helpful, I'd love more content like that that compares multiple items that fill the same niche. My email is meganfmerrill at gmail.

  4. I would love to see any traditions you and Andrew have (even like your Vineyard Vines photo shoot!) and any traditions you’re planning to start now that you’re married (I’m a fellow newly wed). I always love your gift guides, too! Can’t wait for all of the holiday content.

  5. I love the NY holiday content - one day I hope to get there for the holidays...but either way, I love seeing all the holiday spirit :)

  6. I would love to see a post about how you handle family/expectations during the holidays. And posts on your traditions (either brand new or established). I can't wait to see what you have lined up!

  7. I absolutely love the holidays, and love any kind of holiday content, ahah! I know you are looking for some constructive thoughts about your content, so I was thinking that you could do a NYC Holiday Favorites post/s? You could pick a destination, and write about why you love it, and what to do, and when to go, etc. You could also do it as, or with a YouTube series!? I think it would be easy to make these posts an outfit post too, so you could kill two birds with one stone! @libbylovespearls

  8. Can't wait for your holiday content! What about a post on how to stay motivated with workouts during the holiday season? I feel like it can get so hard with all the festivities. Also! Not sure if you're still using ClassPass, but for a giveaway idea, what about credits for ClassPass? I was introduced to the app/service from your blog and found a new love for barre3 from it!

  9. First off I love the blog and your insta!:)I would love to see how to transition every day makeup into holiday makeup.Similarly I’d love to see how you transition your regular fall/winter apparel into holiday outfits!So I guess the theme would be simple and easy ways to spruce up makeup and outfits to make them festive! @courtney_frink

  11. I love the holidays! I look forward to the holiday gift guides (sisters, significant others, & parents) between $100-$200. Also, love holiday party outfits for more formal employer sponsored events. Also, maybe a hotel guide for Christmas in NYC. I usually go two weeks before Christmas and love boutique hotels. @ogi_26 (IG)

  12. I would love to see your top picks of things to do in NYC... Maybe some touristy ones (because who can resist?) and some off the beaten path ones. @hiya.maya

  13. Hi Krista! I would love to see a post with your reflections on how to balance all the madness around the holidays/how to ENJOY the holidays without stressing too much.... I appreciate how open and honest you are about your feelings and I think it would be a really good reminder amidst the holiday shopping :) I think another great post would be about DIY gifts! My insta is @lkforbes

  14. As much as I love seeing bloggers’ glam holiday looks, I’m not at a point in my life where I’m going to a bunch of fancy parties. I would love to see more casual festive outfits! I also love seeing your Christmas decor every year :) @lifeloveandmedicine

  15. I would love to see gift guides for newlyweds! A coworkers gift gift would be help too! I would also love to see holiday outfit posts for work parties, Friendsgiving events, Thanksgiving family gathering, & Christmas family catering. Also a holiday beauty guide (how to get ready for holiday parties and events)!

  18. Can you do a Honeymoon Vlog? (That might be a big ask. lol)I love when you are taping while traveling! Christmas Gift Guides are great but I like that you branch out and do different things with friends...any off the beaten path NYC Holiday posts would also be nice. Thanks for asking! @ash_nikkigrapefruit

  19. It would be cool to see a gift guide with similar products at different price points, especially for guys. Shopping for my brother is always hard and sometimes I see things on blogs that would be perfect, but they're always at least a hundred dollars. aacri2@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  20. I second the holiday make-up looks! Gift guides are great,too, they help me with those hard to buy for friends. A beauty gift guide $25-50-ish would be great...love your beauty recommendations. @lisa_rockwell

  21. I would love to see how you go about giving holiday gifts for your in-laws!

  22. Perhaps a holiday gift guide that's focused on experiences? I'm always looking for different gift ideas for my family and significant other!

  25. SUCH A GOOD GIVEAWAY. Would love pointers on how to stay active/workout when it's too cold to leave your bed, best travel tips when going home/elsewhere to see family, how to not let negative opinions from family get to you, how to impress your boyfriend's family + proper etiquette when meeting the fam, and lastly, what to get a guy you're dating but it's not serious...yet. :)

    THANK YOU!

  26. For some reason, NYE is my favorite holiday to prep for. I love choosing a sparkly dress, and spending a fun night out in DC with my friends. (I'm not usually big on 'going out' but I love to on NYE). Like you, I'm the friend that also does everyone's hair and makeup before going out, so I almost like the getting ready before going out more than the actual going out part! So I'm super into any outfit content surrounding NYE dresses/makeup looks/parties! @carleejeant

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would love to see a gift guide for coworkers! I think this would be super helpful! I would also love to see a post about how you stay motivated with your workout routine during the holidays. I always struggle with working out and staying consistent during this time of year so some tips would be super appreciated!

  28. i would like to see gift guides for different reciepents (his, hers, kids) at different price points ( under $25, under $50, under $100)!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would love to see some men's gift guides (dad, husband, etc) as I always find it so much harder to shop for them! I almost always resort to books and sweaters for my dad, and I think he'd appreciate a little more creativity lol.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would love to see off the beaten path holiday things to do around NYC - I'm heading there the weekend after Christmas through NYE (not doing the ball drop) but narrowing down what we want to do has been tough (we have 4 days).

    I also would love gift guide for mothers in law! My MIL tends to be hard to shop for (as does my FIL but it's such an obscure group of people) and while I've know them 10 years I still struggle to find unique things to get them and show!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Such an exciting time of the year!! I love all holiday content, but I would especially love to see any type of gift guide! As someone mentioned above, an experience based gift guide would be especially helpful. Additionally, I would love to see your favorite things to do around Christmas time in the city itself, or even outside the city!! Love your blog Krista :))

  32. Hi Krista! I would love to see a post about holiday traditions for new couples, families, or newlyweds plus it would be great to hear about how you and Andrew spend your holidays! Plus coming from someone who gets stressed/anxious very easily it would be great see a post about how to balance the business of the holidays without getting overwhelmed!

  34. Hey Krista!
    I LOVE the holidays and I cannot believe it is already November. It seems the year has flown by! I always love your content and looks. Seriously you by far are my favorite influencer. However sometimes I don’t want to spend as much money on certain pieces. I would LOVE for you to put together several holiday looks with all of your fav items and then do a look for less and link a similar look with items from amazon, old navy, Walmart, jcp etc. Also maybe personalized gifts you can give using pictures from the wedding. (I just got married as well ��)

    Can’t wait to see whatever holiday content you decide to do!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I know all bloggers do gift guides which is great, but I would recommend including affordable I.e. under $50 items in each gift guide and maybe even do a gift guide that is all under $50. Also an Amazon Prime gift guide would be amazing! Insta is bridgesciscento

    ReplyDelete
  36. I really love your makeup reviews and tutorials! I think a gift guide of your favorite makeup products, holiday gift sets, etc. would be great. Also, I'd love if Andrew put together his picks because I always have the hardest time shopping for my husband! @mckenziefstanfield

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would love to see a guide of inexpensive gifts that can feel personal. I also would love to have a post on navigating the holidays with a significant other and their family and balancing it all!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hey girl. for content I'd love to see a series on how to dress layers with the changing of the seasons and from those layers to see how to dress it up going out after work. for holidays I think you do a really good job with gift guides but would love to see more of fun unique finds on etsy. I think you found some great artists on etsy for your wedding that could translate well into a gift this year for parents or something. maybe a "how to spend a unforgettable day in new york on a budget" vlog. how self care is important during the holidays blog post, and a best of 2019 post with all your favorite products, photos, clothing, outfits, amazon finds etc.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would love love love to see a post on trips as gifts! I know that is something you and Andrew love to do. I always try to do this for my husband but it is SO hard to come up with good ideas on different budgets. The big ones are easy but the small weekends are hard! Also it’s always so complicated to keep everything a secret and a surprise! Would love your advice on planning everything out! IG:@classic_mel

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would love to see ideas for friends or co-workers and grandparents. We're trying not to spend too much this year and it can be hard to find cute gifts. How many years can I give the same Bath and Body Works lotions to my girlfriends?!?! Also grandparents who already have everything can be difficult. Something thoughtful that isn't always a picture frame/book.

  41. I would love to see your ideas for giving back during the holiday season both time and monetarily. 50 gifts under 50. A gift guide for the girl who has everything. A gift guide for the working gal, things that would be beneficial but you do not necessarily want to speak your own money on...business card holder, planner, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Since the holiday season can be so ridiculously busy, I'd love to see content about how you strive to keep the time with family and friends truly meaningful. It's a struggle to focus on that.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would love to see a winter coat/ accessories comparison post. I live in PA so it gets cold, but I still want to look vaguely cute, but still warm. I know you really like the canada goose, but would love much more affordable options!

    ReplyDelete
  44. First, that's so sweet of you. You mentioned that you give Andrew travel. Do you think you could compile a list of weekend get aways that could be given as gifts? My parents are so difficult to buy for and the mini trips from all of us seem to be a hit! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Whoops internet ate my first comment...but here goes!

    Maybe for a giveaway you could do the top ten items you love? Or another Barbour jacket as that is such a staple Krista outfit item!

    In terms of blog posts. I really loved your workout posts especially the before and after reviews - maybe you could do OTF next? Also if you wanted to share a travel guide to your honeymoon would be amazing as I’m heading that way in 2021 for my friends wedding so collecting ideas! Also I second another commenters idea about doing a cheap/high end version of holiday outfits as then people can mix and match based on their budget. I also really love Grace Atwood’s weekly round up of her outfits and would be fun to see your take on that! Love the blog as always. (Ig handle @love_ezgi)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I LOVE gift guides! So much of my family doesn’t really “need” anything, and guys just seem to be impossible to shop for (whiskey and golf balls are good and all, but something different would be nice). Plus, I actually stole your idea of the Life Belt as a grooms gift, so I know you’ll recommend good stuff! Good loungewear is also great because, let’s be honest, when it’s cold and gross outside, I’m not putting real clothes on. And my insta is @carolynleigh24

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would love to see a variety of holiday clothing pieces with ideas of how to wear them to different events. For example, instead of buying several holiday pieces, how can I style a festive top to fit an office party, date night, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Holiday season is so fun and I’ve been getting so much style inspiration from your blog/instagram, so I am really looking forward to your gift guides! I really want to get a nice gift for my boyfriend this Christmas, so I think a gift guide for boyfriends would be helpful! My email is lrn.eliz@gmail.com

  49. I’d love to see a casual holiday look! My family’s Christmas is not dressy at all, but I still like to put together a cute festive look! My ig handle is @haycarolynn

  50. A calendar of some sort for daily or weekly plans leading up to new years day. I agree these last 2 months will just fly by and i always feel guilty that i dont treasure the holidays as much! Im wrapped up with buying gifts, preparing for parties, picking out outfits, and by doing this “calendar” will help us navigate the holidays better! This will be our first year together in our new house and overwhelmed with the things to do! @alelibay on insta

    ReplyDelete
  51. I enjoy seeing gift guides in different categories (jewelry, clothing, home, workout gear, etc). Maybe a post about any holiday traditions you have, any favorite recipes/cookies you make, and maybe favorite makeup products to use for holiday parties and events. @tea_rose

    ReplyDelete
  54. I would love to see a gift guide for your parents, Andrew, and sister that is focused on stocking stuffer sized/priced items (under $50 would be ideal). So many of us buy ourselves big things (handbags, shoes, trips, concerts/shows) throughout the year which significantly decreases the reasonably priced smaller things we would want our family to gift us.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi Krista! I’d love to see some alternatives to dresses for holiday parties. I would LOVE a fitted fancy suit option but everything I’ve found online is $$$$. This is my favorite time of year! Can’t wait to see what you put together for gift guides!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Krista! I would love to see some fun casual holiday party outfits and some gift ideas in the $20-$30 range for co-workers, neighbors, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks for this great giveaway! I'd love to see holiday content including "holiday" things to do in NYC that aren't on your typical to-do list. I'll be in the city right before Christmas and would love to get in the spirit. I'd also love to see more casual Christmas outfits. My family is a lot more casual, so dresses and fancier outfits don't really make sense for me (though they are really cute!)

  58. I would love to see a great guide for Kitchen/Home stuff as I am a new homeowner and I know that alot of our friends are as well and I always struggle with getting gifts because so many of the necessary items are so pricy! So maybe some fun, smaller kitchen tools that would be thoughtful and not just end up in a junk drawer? Thank you!! @stephodowd on IG! Happy Holidays and thank you for hosting such generous giveaways!

  61. Very beautiful photos. New York is a city that I would love to see. You can say I'm in love with this city. Maybe in a few years I will be able to visit this wonderful city. For now, all I have to do is create T-shirts with New York motifs. What do you think about this shirt?

  64. November 1 hits and all is right in the world!!
    I sure do love the holidays and am obviously a fan of holiday content. Gift guides, “hidden gem” holiday experiences in NYC, and holiday party fashion inspo are all extremely welcomed on my feed and inbox!
    In addition, I think the “giving season” warrants a few posts highlighting special people or organizations that are “giving back” or “giving it their all”. I’m always motivated by boss babes who are making a difference (whether it’s through the community or a company or even a unique perspective they share with the world). I think that could be really cool to see you do some of those kinds of interviews!
    Looking forward to all that you have coming down the pipeline! �� @kelhady

  65. For holiday content I would love to see:
    - perfect weekend in NYC at the holidays
    - amazon gift guide (quirky, useful items are always fun)
    - winter jacket review and comparison
    - $50 and under gift guide
    - 2019 best beauty buys (you always find the best stuff)
    - 2019 top clothing/ shoe/ handbag purchases
    - winter outfit formulas for different occasions at the holidays
    - decorating a small space for the holidays
    - designer handbag reviews (not necessarily holiday but I always appreciate your honesty)
    - winter makeup tutorial
    - how you stay organized and prioritize at the holidays
    - honeymoon itinerary (also not necessarily holiday but always love these)
    - iPhone photo tricks for capturing the best pictures (always comes in handy this time of year)

    I hope this helps! I love your posts and always appreciate how thorough and honest you are!

  67. Hi Krista, I always love your holiday content. Gift guides for different people in your life (spouse/SO, parents, girlfriends, etc) are helpful. Your pictures of seeing/doing different holiday things in NYC is also super fun! It's such a special time in the city and you do a wonderful job capturing it while showing off your classic style. Also your traditional holiday photo of you and Andrew is a must!

  71. Hey Krista! You're one of the few bloggers I have continued to follow over the years because I very much appreciate your realness. I LOVE your style, and that you share adorable and higher end items, and that's it's legit, attainable style.

    For holiday, I'd love to see realistic gifts for family members (mom and dad) and husbands! Also, I ALWAYS love your holiday lewwwwks.. so maybe a few holiday outfit inspo posts but for multiple occasions (casual and dressier??)

    Thanks! anne.white12@gmail.com

  73. I would love to see how to navigate holidays being newly married! I am getting married in December, and am already stressing about how this will all work out. I also would love ideas for more casual holiday party outfits - I don't have any holiday parties to attend that require a cocktail dress, but still would love something festive that is more casual. Gift guides for lower budgets would be great also!! I have LOVED following along with your wedding/wedding planning process, and just really enjoy your blog and instagram, and feel that I can relate so much!! @christinabrown4

  77. Would love to see an inexpensive gift guide for people that are outside of the obvious - especially now that you have a new mother-in-law, (and whole new little family). I would like to see what you are getting, and what you can recommend at all price ranges. I don't think enough bloggers talk about gift giving guide outside of their immediate family, husbands, etc so would be fun to see from you. @stephrozycki on instagram!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hey Krista,

    Some things I would love to see from you during this holiday season are 1) a holiday decor post detailing what items in the apartment you swap out for festive things because im needing some inspiration so bad 2) I would love to see some of your looks for the holiday festivies from fancy parties to casual dinners heck even cute christmas pjs 3) i would love to see whats on your christmas list this year 4) a holiday gift giving guide is always a crowd favorite !! 5) Holiday baking and treats maybe you like to make specifically for this great season 6) a must listen to playlist with your favorite holiday songs! (p.s. been loving the tik toks) my instagram is @itshalimac !

    ReplyDelete
  79. One thing I would like to see is more "grown up" gifts for significant others (husband, fiance, etc). I feel like so many gift guides focus on lower price points but I'm always looking for investment pieces for presents- things in the $250- $500 range.

    Gift ideas for in laws would be great too- we always struggle with what to get each other's parents!

  80. I'd love to see holiday gift guides especially for guys, my bf is the hardest to shop for! Also, holiday outfit ideas, I've already got 2 work parties, get togethers with friends and family parties to get outfits for. @kkam.van

  81. Krista - I love a good gift guide, for gal pals, family (yankee swap gifts would be a really fun one to do for those of us with big families or yankee swap parties!), and the significant others. I would also love to hear about how you and Andrew divide the holidays between your families. Andrews being in NY and yours in Chicago area I am sure it’s hard!

  83. For starters, I have to say I am LOVING your wedding blog posts this week, I admire everything about your wedding and I’m just so glad you ended up sharing your day with us.
    As far as holiday ideas! A gift guide for gifts under a reasonable price point, that way I can give good gifts that aren’t super expensive to more people. Unfortunately we can’t go above and beyond for everyone, but making someone feel special is what counts.
    Thanks for all you do :)

  84. I would love to see more casual holiday outfits- like this one! Stuff that’s festive but not super fancy for Thanksgiving and Christmas events that have a “jeans and nice top” vibe.

  85. Hi,
    I'm a new follower!! I'd like to see info on what to do in NYC during the holidays and a "get dressed with me" post on how to pick outfits for holiday parties!

  86. Hi! I would love to see how you're going to decorate for Christmas (I love your style), and practical things you would recommend for a 20 something moving into their first apartment! @emilygvogt

  87. Gift guides of different price ranges. I often have a bigger item, but I would love to see what you recommend for little add ons! I would love to see what broadway shows in NYC that you recommend or other fun things to do over the holidays in the city. @afill24

  88. I think what I’d love to see on the blog is truly what you’d love to receive gift wise, but not the classic “here are 5 things from nordstrom.” I’m thinking more like the small, independent Etsy shops or boutiques that you work with or purchase from. I think it’s an awesome way to give back to them, and support smaller, more local biz. Those are the shops that I believe are harder to find, or support. I think it’s easy for bloggers to list off 5 hot button items (ex: away suitcase or airpods or barbour jacket) that anyone would love as gifts. But all the smaller companies you plug in posts would be even more fun to support this holiday szn, in my opinion �� love you and the blog as always!! Corinne // @cmbarrow8

  89. Hi! I would definitely appreciate holiday content that specialized in decorating for smaller spaces such as apartments. Also having gift guides at all priced ranged that included some thoughtful gifts to give to special people in your life even though you can’t afford to get them something super expensive. Love the blog!! Ty!! Arlynn @arlynn_baer

  90. I’m sure you’re already planning on doing them - but gift guides! I will say though that earlier is better on these though. I’ll try to get a lot of my shopping done around Thanksgiving or very early December. Some other ideas - I think something on holiday movies (all the cheesy ones!) would be fun! Or perhaps a gift wrap/decoration post.
    Hope these are helpful suggestions. Enjoy the blog always! My Instagram handle is @miriamh

  91. I would love to see how to balance holiday obligations! Especially as a newly wed I’m sure you are trying to make your own holiday traditions and mesh your family holiday traditions with your new family. It seems like December can fly by with an obligation in every waking moment. So how to manage that as well as how to work outfits and items to be multi use without spending a fortune and not wearing the same outfit to every event. Soak it all in and enjoy this Christmas season! Instagram: @oliviakd92

  92. Nothing new, but I would love to see gift guides! I just got married in September and I'm going from just buying gifts for my mom to buying gifts for both sets of grandparents on my husband's side, new cousins, and in-laws - kind of overwhelming! I'd also love to see how you decorate your apartment. This is my first year that I am not sharing the apartment with roommates and have the responsibility of decorating the whole place! Thanks Krista!
