November Favourites.

Another month has passed by (so quickly I might add) 2013 really has gone by crazily fast. As I haven't done a favourites post for so long, I thought I'd get my butt in gear and write one, so these are the beauty, hair & 'others' that I've been loving this month.

 Beauty & Skincare. 

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. I did a separate review post on this product, here, so I'm only going to touch upon it briefly. This product has changed my skin so much, I can fully understand now why everyone raves about this. Whenever I take my makeup off/cleanse I really feel like it is working on my skin properly & my skin always feels incredible after I've used it, I'd highly recommend this to anyone.

Benefit Facial Emulsion. I also did a separate post about this way back when which you can read here. I'm so bad with moisturising my face so I used this for a fair while when I first purchased it, but then kind of left it in my makeup bag & forgot about it, but as winter is upon us my skin is going to start getting very dry so I decided to bring it back into my skincare collection, and already it has done wonders for my skin. My skin feels so much more hydrated & silky smooth to touch.

Soap & Glory Hand Food. This, for me is an essential product for the colder months, my hands become so dry & horrible during winter so this is just a brilliant product to keep my hands hydrated. The product itself smells amazing & leaves my hands smelling & feeling incredible for hours after I've used it. I love this product so much I actually have two tubes of it, one on my dressing table & one in my handbag. Don't judge me!

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick - 01. If you've been following this blog for a while then you'll probably know by now that I love lipsticks! I'm especially loving dark colours for autumn/winter (who isn't?! Real original Charlotte) and as winter is the party season I love having a statement red lipstick and this one is so perfect for me. Its a lovely bright red which just oozes hollywood glamour, I love it! 

MUA Heaven & Earth Palette. If I'm wearing makeup, than 100% I will be wearing colours from this palette, I love it so much. I'm not the most adventurous with my eye makeup so if I'm wearing colour on my eyes it has to be nudes, golds or browns & this palette offers all of these. Its perfect for casual daytime looks or dressed up night time looks.

No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour - Foxglove 80. I've become such a slacker recently when it comes to painting my nails, to be honest I just can't be bothered! But on a recent trip to Brighton for my best friends 21st birthday I thought I should probably make the effort. This colour really stood out to me because a) I love purple nails, and the shade of this is a really nice colour, its not to light/bright but its not too dark either, its like the perfect in-between. And b) because I thought it was quite a nice autumn colour without being the obvious autumn colour choices.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub. I've mentioned this a million and one times on this blog but it will always remain a staple & a favourite product. It leaves my dry, unloved, wintery legs feeling incredible! & it smells amazing too which is obviously an essential for me, the citrus scent is so nice I could just sit and sniff the pot for far longer than is acceptable.


Frizz Ease Hair Serum. My hair is frizzy at the best of times but once you add winter winds into the mix then theres just no hope for it, this product has been amazing for keeping down fly aways & just keeping my hair regular human looking. 

Tangle Teezer. I'm certain I mention this in every single favourites post, but this really is an essential for me! I just can't use a regular hairbrush on my hair anymore, unless I have about four hours spare! If you have particularly knotty hair like mine then I would highly recommend this, I also really like the fact that it doesn't leave my hair feeling fluffy/frizzy like some hairbrushes have done in the past. 


Yankee Candle - Blissful Autumn. As Autumn draws to an end so does another candle, I've literally been obsessed with this candle this month, and I'm candle obsessed at the best of times anyway, so that just shows how good it is. I'm so bad at describing candle scents but the smell literally sums up autumn, its got some fruity undertones and smells kind of leafy… I told you I can't describe scents…its just really good.

Kinder Chocolate Bars. A new discovery this month, and I'm so annoyed I'm only just discovering these. Seriously these are incredible chocolate bars, kinder eggs in chocolate bar form…what could be better?! Nothing I tell you.

Dairy Milk Caramel Hot Chocolate. I've become a bit of a hot chocolate addict this month & I'm loving this one a heck of a lot, I thought the original dairy milk one was good but this has surpassed that completely, heaven in the mouth is what this is. 

Mcfly - Love Is On The Radio. I'm sorry but if this song doesn't make you happy then you are listening to it wrong, I've constantly got this in my head & humming to it around the house/belting it out in the shower. I also love the versions that Tom Fletcher recorded with his sister Carrie and his wife Giovanna. Such a lovely song. 

Homeland. Oh my goodness! This show! Its so incredible, despite a slightly slow start, season 3 is looking to become crazily incredible, I'm so excited to see what happens and I'm so glad it has been renewed for a fourth season.

Once Upon A Time. Another amazing television show, after a slightly disappointing second season I wasn't expecting great things from the third season, but I was proved wrong in the first episode, its proving to be the best yet, so excited for whats to come.


Tori's Tales - Monday Motivation. This post made me so happy when I read it, I love Tori's posts like these! She's so creative & always finds the most beautiful pictures. Such a simple but effective way to give motivation & it definitely brightened up my Monday! :)

Lisette Loves - Thankful ThursdayI love Lisette's Thankful Thursday series & I always feel so inspired every week when I read it, I especially liked this Thankful Thursday because it tied in with Thanksgiving! And it was so nice to see what Lisette was thankful for & it really made me think what I'm thankful for! It was awesome! Go check it out please! 

The Briar Rose Blog - Make Your Own Dinglehopper. Megan and her blog is so fabulous, she is quite literally the human little mermaid, her beautiful red fairytale hair leaves me so feeling so envious, when I saw her  DIY Dinglehopper little mermaid related post I was so excited, I'm definitely going to be giving this a go & making it for my little sisters christmas present! 

Cider With Rosie - The Wealden Midwinter FairRosie does some of the most awesome autumny/wintery/christmassy posts ever! Every single one this time of year leaves me feeling so festive! And this one is no exception, the pictures are brilliant and the whole trip just looks amazing!


TheSacconeyJolys & Shaytards. I'm loving vlogs at the moment, its probably my inner nosiness that makes me so interested by watching other peoples daily lives! Also I'm so excited for December to begin for all the people to begin doing Vlogmas!
