Month in Review: November 2013

Friday, November 29, 2013

November was one of those months where I was still saying, "I don't know where October went!" until suddenly I was halfway through November and confused as to how I lost six weeks of time! Regardless of this though, there were still some pretty unforgetable things happening around Never Fully Dressed.

Unforgettable Mail

I shared tips on How to Write a Holiday Letter, and, speaking of the holidays, if you're looking for a special present or two this season, why not take a look at these Subscription Packages for Women? For other things you can get in the mail, here's the third edition of Unusual Mail too.

Unforgettable Movies

Sultry Mae West slinked her way to fame in She Done Him Wrong and the sweet duo of Jimmy Stewart and Margret Sullivan fell in love in The Shop Around the Corner. Meanwhile we took style cues from two period films with The Ghost and Mrs. Muir as well as Bonnie and Clyde.

Unforgettable Plans

Much of this month was tangled up with the passing of my grandmother, whom I helped care for; her funeral; and then with catching up on all we had put on back-burners when dealing with that. Then later this month, I got a new job (I had been substitute teaching previous to this) at an elementary. So still won't be saying a whole lot about work for children's privacy, but I'm looking forward to getting to know this bunch of great kids. Like so many others, we also got to enjoy many friends and relatives visiting over the holiday and lots of yummy food.

Just because life was going full-throttle, doesn't mean Never Fully Dressed wasn't up to fun new things too though! We caught up with several bloggers to get their secrets on how to organize our closets. Things got a little sentimental with this month's Dog Eared Page, but who wouldn't tear up- just a little- with The Velveteen Rabbit? And now that the holiday season's officially begun, here is a Gift Guide for Men and a list of shops that give back to help you with all your present-buying needs.
