In Monday's post I spoke about the ups and downs of November, and to get me through those downs I've been on many a shopping spree spending money I really don't have, and I've also spent a fair amount of my time in my room keeping as warm and cosy as I can even though my room resembles a freezer most of the time! Theres been a fair few things I've been loving this month, like loving to the point where I want to tell everyone all about them, so I decided that's what I would do and here is my first ever monthly favourites post.
To start with I have to talk about these slippers from Primark which have hardly left my feet all month. I love them so much I even brought a second pair that live at my boyfriend's house so I never have to be apart from them. They're the cosiest slippers I've ever had, and unlike 'bootie' style slippers these don't make your feet get super hot. At something like £6 they are such a bargain and I think everyone should go get a pair! Also from Primark is this tartan scarf which I wear with almost everything. I just think it's perfect, not too big and heavy, just right, and it looks lovely I think. As it's Primark it's also a lot cheaper than some of the other tartan scarfs around at the moment.
It's getting close to Christmas and Im starting to get excited, but as Im not at Uni for the holidays Im not decorating my room, but as I spend probably 70% of my time in my room doing work I've been loving burning Christmassy smelling candles to both get me in the festive mood and to cheer me up while Im reading for my dissertation. This candle is the from Yankee Candle, Simply Home range in Holiday Magic, and it smells amazing. Like Christmas in a candle! I got it as part of a Winter Votive Set from asda, which has 6 Christmas scented candles in it.
Something else I've been loving this month is Slim Fruits, these are yummy little sweets that are super low in calories, fat and sugar. I posted a review of them recently where you can read a bit more about why they're so great. I've been loving munching on these when I need a little sweet treat.
In September I treated myself to a perfume, and being the Marc Jacobs addict that I am I had to try out Daisy Dream, and I was not disappointed. It's a little bit different from other perfumes I've had before, it has a sophisticated fruity smell, but it's not sharp or citrusy. I know it's been talked about by a lot of bloggers and I can definitely see why. I also love the bottle, a bit less showy than some of Marc Jacob's previous perfumes.
The mascara I've been using recently is Barry M's Showgirl. I got it free when I purchased 2 nail polishes and I wasn't expecting much, but I actually think it's really great. It separates my eyelashes and gives great length and a decent curl. I love it because it doesn't clump and isn't to wet. I also love the packaging, its quite heavy and I think it looks quite expensive. The only down side is it's staying power, as I always get mascara on my eyelids when Im applying and this can be difficult to get off.
When I saw Twinings Salted Caramel Green Tea in the supermarket I knew I had to have it, and it was one of the best decisions I've made all month! This stuff tastes delicious, and if you love Green Tea and have a bit of a sweet tooth this tea is for you. It tastes like a pudding but without the calories, you really get the caramel flavour and it smells amazing. It's great when you just need something comforting and I've been having a mug of this and getting curled up into bed with a good book a lot this month.
The last thing I've been loving is this list book from Paperchase. One of the things that triggers my anxiety is being unorganised and feeling like I have loads to do, and this book has been a bit of a life saver for me. It's a list book so you can rip out the pages and start fresh each day which I love. Each day I write down the things I need to get done and tick them off, It also has a section where I can just jot down notes or general things I need to get done. I keep this with me all the time so whenever I think of something that needs to be done I can add it in and know I won't forget about it. If you're the sort of person who loves lists I'd really recommend a notebook like this. It's so satisfying and motivating.
I'd love to know what you've been loving in November, leave me a comment below.
