Welcome to this week’s Wednesday Watch List, where I share the random things that captured my attention and stole my heart over the past week!

1 – This time of year, I tend to think of places like Napa and Italy when it comes to design. For some reason they both just remind of fall! When I saw this wine country residence it completely stopped me in my tracks! Can you even imagine this view as you walk in the front door?! You can take the full tour here.
2 – About this time each year, I notice my lips really start to dry out. With days that start out in the 40’s and 50’s and can end in the 70’s I’m pretty sure my body doesn’t know what’s happening! Add in the wind, and my lips start to get in rough shape. Each year I invest in a lip balm to use on my lips before bed each night (in addition to whatever I wear during the day). I feel it makes all the difference to sleep with something super nourishing on my lips. I ordered this lip balm this year and can’t wait until it arrives! It’s a bit of an investment but I was willing to try it since it’s from one of my all-time favorite brands! Since I only use it before bed, I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to make the whole pot last until spring. This coconut balm is another favorite of mine that works really well!
3 – The last time I went to share these cap toe block heels, they had recently sold out. But, they’re fully stocked again and on sale! And if you’re a cardholder, you can get an extra 15% off your purchase with code TOOGOOD. They’re perfect for casual or business outfits!
4 – You guys loved this faux leather tufted ottoman so much when I shared it last week, I knew I had to share this very similar full-length bench version when I saw it this week! The best part is, it’s on sale right now, plus an extra 15% off at checkout with code OCTOBER! It would be so cute at the foot of a bed, in an entryway or as a dining bench! And if the faux leather isn’t your thing, it also comes in a black and white buffalo check version and a linen fabric version!
5 – It’s no secret I’m a major coffee table book junkie (you can see some of my favorites here – I just updated the post with even more recent finds). However, the last coffee table book I bought was in Chattanooga for my birthday and prior to that it had been months since I last bought one! The über talented Lauren Liess just published Down To Earth yesterday and I can’t wait until it arrives today! Her last book, Habitat, is a favorite of mine so I know this one will be amazing as well. I also bought Travel Home: Design with a Global Spirit. I met the author, Caitlin Flemming, last year on my blog trip to Napa and immediately liked her and have followed her designs since. I love that the book helps you incorporate your travels into your home decor – two of the things I’m most passionate about! I’m really looking forward to digging into this one too! I think they’ll both make for the perfect fall coffee table books!
