November Favourites

Monday, 28 November 2016

Hi guys! Well, here we are at the end of another month that's gone so incredibly fast-I say it every month but it's always just as true! My November started quite stressfully with my Uni exams but has improved significantly now that I'm on holidays... I've been doing lots of reading, swimming and general relaxing over the last couple of weeks which I really can't complain about! My favourites this month are a bit of an eclectic mix but I've been seriously loving them all, so let's get into it!

My first favourite for the month is the Maybelline MasterContour palette. This is my first proper contour kit and I'm loving it! It's really easy to use and the colours are lovely, especially the highlight which is totally amazeballs. The contour shade can tend to be a little bit muddy but this can be fixed with a little bit of all in all my face has never looked so on point!

My next favourite is this gorgeous 2017 planner and pen. I purchased these in Japan separately, but look how well they go together! The pen says 'step outside and get some air' in gold lettering which I think is absolutely adorable. Also, isn't it the most frustrating thing when you only have a calendar up until December and need to plan for the next year? I'm currently doing a lot of planning for travel over Christmas, Uni placements and organising moving next year so the planner has been the best purchase to help keep me organised!

Another slightly random favourite is this Happy Sol Cacao Maca + Chia powder. It's basically a healthy smoothie additive to add taste and nutrients- the packaging is so cute and it tastes amazing! *Insert heart eyes emoji here* It's made by an Australian company so I'm not sure if you can get it elsewhere in the world but I'd fully recommend it if you can! I also have the coconut water and superfruit one which is nice but not quite at the level of this one-I've been blending this with a frozen banana and milk and it honestly tastes like a chocolate smoothie whilst still being super healthy!

My last favourite for the month is The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez. I read this in Japan and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since! I've been reading lots of fluffy romance novels lately so this was a great change in the form of a mix of more serious issues and lighthearted wonderful characters. I won't give away all it's secrets as I do intend to write a full review of it at some point, but I couldn't leave it out of this post as I loved it so much!

So that's some of the things I've been loving this month-have you tried any of these? What have you been loving lately?
Here's to an incredibly happy, festive and stress-free December for us all!

  2. It must be so convenient in the morning to have contour/blush/highlight all in one palette, ready to go! It's dreamy how you matched that pen color to your planner. I really like the colors with the golden outlines. Always nice to have a bit of sparkle ;)
