This is my very first “monthly favourites” and it was kind of a last minute thing. I want to upload more post in December so I decided to do this. Depending on how this goes, I might carry on doing these but I don’t want to make it too generic and similar to everyone else’s monthly faves so I might start being more specific and do a “fashion monthly faves” for example. But anyway, hope you enjoy.
November went so fast! It was the month where I had to start thinking about starting all of my uni essays which has been stressful and overwhelming. So tbh, I am so glad November is over, I love Christmas and I am currently writing this on the 1st December and that gets me so excited!
Lush Christmas Range
Obviously Lush was going to make an appearance so I may as well make it the first one! I started buying from the Lush Christmas Range in October but I have used A LOT of bath bombs, bubble bars, soaps and shower gels etc etc in November. I love pretty much all of their Christmas range and my next blog post is going to be about my favourites, so look forward to that! The picture above includes products; Star Light Star Bright Bath Bomb, Christmas Eve Bubble Bar and The Magic Of Christmas Bubble Wand. Also, I have recently started as a Christmas Temp again this year at Lush Nottingham which is super exciting!
A fashion favourite! It has been freezing over the past few days and it has also been snowing in Nottingham! I do not know what I would have done without oversized jumpers. Especially this grey, turtle-neck jumper from Pretty Little Thing. So this jumper hasn’t got a thick, soft wool lining. It is actually quite light, but that is why I love it. In the picture above I am wearing a thick long sleeve top underneath it and you cannot even tell! I love being able to build layers when it is cold.
I got this eyeshadow palette last year and I have only hit pan on 3 of the shades, some of the shades I haven’t even used yet but overall, this is my fave no 1 eyeshadow palette. The picture above was taken when I very first got it and it definitely does not look like that anymore haha! The lid has just broken off 🙁 Anyway, I have been using this a lot this month, especially the matte browns and the shimmer pink colours. I cannot fault this eyeshadow palette, the shades are beautiful, they blend so well, they are so pigmented and they last all day. I have recently ordered the Morphe 3502 Second Nature Palette which I am extremely excited about!!
Hot Chocolate and Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children
Throughout October and November, I have been reading the Miss Peregrine books by Ransom Riggs, there is three of them and this month I finished the last one “Library of Souls“. I enjoyed reading these books however they did get a little boring towards the end but I had to finish them to find out what happened. I definitely recommend reading the first in the series called “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” as it is fantastic. The pictures in all three books are amazing. Another favourite of mine this month is Maltersor Hot Chocolate. Although the hot chocolate itself isn’t vegan, I am trying to cut down on dairy so I use coconut milk, oat milk, and hot water to make this hot chocolate and it is SO NICE!!!
As well as the Morphe palette, I have been loving this Killawatt Highlighter by Fenty Beauty, I am not going to say a lot about this because I have not long done a review which is here. But I have used this highlighter every single time I have gone out this month, it is amazing!! Has anybody else tried any Fenty Beauty? Let me know in the comments.
3% – Netflix Original
Me and my boyfriend have recently finished watching 3% on Netflix, at first, we weren’t too sure about it but we are both glad we continued to watch it. It is a Brazillian dystopian thriller series which has been badly English dubbed haha! But it is still a great watch. In the series, when it is your 20th Birthday, you can compete with other people to leave the slums and prove you are worthy of joining to the priviledge elite in paradise, but only 3% of you will go. This is a very twisted series but that is what I loved about it the most. There is only one season on Netflix currently and I would definitely recommend giving it a watch!
Thanks for reading guys! xxx
