November At A Glance + A Few Of My Favourite Things | Lifestyle
November really did pass by in a flash, didn't it?! And this year I'm feeling particularly unorganised for Christmas!
November was a pretty good month; we went on a few shopping trips and saw Horns, The Imitation Game and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 at the cinema (all of which were great, by the way!) Work is extremely busy at the moment, but let's not focus on the negative things! I had a lovely evening at a friend's house the other week, where we watched The Jacket and nibbled on pizza!
Obviously lots of Christmas shopping was done in November, with a little still left to do. I think you definitely start feeling more festive once you've got the stress of buying gifts out of the way; then you can relax and slow down a little!
Towards the end of November I got the dread cold, which I've still got now, so that is bringing me down a bit! Feeling pretty lazy at the moment. Still need to start that exercise regime... And stop eating too many chocolates... But what the hell, it's Christmas!
And to conclude the end of November, here are a few of my favourite things:
I ordered a couple of FoM samples after they followed me on Instagram; before then, I'd not heard of this brand. This facial moisturiser is really rich, smells gorgeous and has lots of great properties. It is really relaxing and pleasant to use. This is great for using overnight during Winter. I feel it is too heavy for me to use during the day as it does leave my skin feeling greasy and looking shiny.
This limited edition hand cream has a warm, sweet vanilla scent which is gorgeous. It has a thick, silky texture which is easily absorbed into the skin and leaves no greasy residue. This 30ml size is perfect for my handbag and best of all, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin!
I introduced chamomile tea into my diet a while back after discovering that it can help towards improving your skin's properties; healing, soothing and clearing. This particular combination with the maple syrup is lovely!
