Since it is almost the end of November, we decided to leave the month on a positive note and bring a new style of post to our blog, our monthly favourites! This gives us the opportunity to share with you all a few of our favourite things each month and hopefully by reading you can find something new that you might like. We’re really hoping that we will be able to get this on the blog every month but for now let’s show you what we’ve been loving in November.
Most Used Make-Up Product
One item in particular that we have been loving this month is Mystic Marsala, which we spoke about in a recent post. For just £1 we’re seriously impressed with this Make Up Academy lipstick! Not only is it a beautiful shade but it stays on your lips forever and doesn’t dry them out even though it’s matte!
Favourite Lush Product
Our favourite item from Lush this month has got to be Shoot For The Stars. For starters, the scent is an amazingly sweet honey smell and for all you Vegans out there, this is Vegan friendly so you can use it too! It leaves pastel swirls of glittery foam and turns the water a deep purple like a starry night sky. There’s even tiny foam stars that come out of it! We have fallen in love with Shoot For The Stars, just look at the photos below and you’ll understand why! (Prepare for bath bomb photo spam!)
Most Worn Clothing Item
Lauren: For me it has got to be this long green jumper I have bought recently. I’m really loving green tones this season and when I found this jumper in H&M for just £12.99 I knew I had to have it! Usually bigger jumpers swamp me but I find that this looks fab with dark skinnies, whilst keeping me warm too!
Rachel: One thing I’ve found myself wearing a lot this month is this scarf. It was around £7 from Primark and it is the cosiest item I have bought this season! It’s reversible too so you can style it with different coloured outfits, it goes with everything!
So three songs we have been loving this month are Don Broco’s ‘Nerve’, ‘True Friends’ by Bring Me The Horizon and ‘Love Me’ by The 1975. Don Broco have won it for us this month though, it’s a song we haven’t been able to stop playing since we got their newest album! They recently released a video for the single and the song is one of our favourites from their album Automatic. If you’ve not heard of these guys before you should definitely give them a listen!
One of our favourite things we’ve bought this month is this Christmas adult colouring book. This has been getting us more into the Christmas spirit as we colour in the beautiful artwork that follows the story of ‘A Christmas Carol’. If you want something to do in your spare time and get you in the Christmas mood, you need one of these!
We’ve been so busy at work and college/uni lately that we haven’t had time to go out a lot. However, it was nice to take a break last week and enjoy our last gig of the year! We went to see The 1975 and they were so good live. They played a lot of their best songs and even played a few new ones! It was really different to the other gigs we’ve been to this year and it made a change to go to see music that was quite chilled and not get squished in the crowd!
Ever since we started blogging we have got to read so many lovely blogs but for this month, the lovely Sophie at ‘Shy Life Living’ has come out on top. She posts everything from fashion and lifestyle to advice. We’re loving all of her posts and how she manages to post so often whilst studying for her A Levels. We will be collaborating with Sophie later next month and are super excited to show you what we have created! All of her content from her writing to her photography is amazing and you need to check out her blog!
A lot of people struggle to find things to post on Instagram and keep up a theme, us included! Kathryn on the other hand manages to keep her Instagram page looking so neat and interesting! We love how autumnal her page is looking lately and you should definitely follow her. Not only that but her blog is amazing and she’s lovely too!
So there’s our favourite things this month, what our yours?
