November Favourites.

Just a quick little list of all the things I've been loving over the last month.

Benefit Watt's Up!

Okay so I love this product. It's slightly glittery, it's champagne coloured, and it's a cream formula. It looks like golden beautifulness on the skin. When it starts to wear off it loses it's shine and is just glittery but it takes a while to wear off. It's my new favourite highlighter.

Lily Melrose Vlogs.

I'm a huge YouTube fan, I subscribe to and watch so many channels, and I bounce around from one thing to another. Recently I've been absolutely loving Lily's vlogs. Lily Melrose is my favourite blogger and now my favourite vlogger. She started more regular vlogging in September to document her move to Brighton and also did vlogtober. If you like daily vlogs I'd highly recommend her second channel.

Colouring books.

I was in Sainsbury's a few weeks ago and I spotted a book called 'Secret Garden' and I picked it up, thinking it was something to do with the FHB novel. How wrong I was. It was a colouring book, an adult colouring book. It was, along with a whole shelf of others, filled with intricate patterns and pictures that were screaming for me to colour in. I picked up 3, and my mum even got a little one! They were £4.99 for the large ones and £2.99 for the small ones, and they're so cute. I spent way more money on buying the Staedtler and Stabilo fineliners in huge packs so that I had lots of colours.

Dove 'Cucumber and Green Tea' Maximum Protection deodorant.

Have you smelled this? It's like heaven. I usually don't go in for scents like this in deodorant, I usually use the Dove pure spray because it barely smells of anything, but I was looking for a cream deodorant rather than a spray and I came across this one. They're quite expensive, at £5 each, but they last a while and are easy to apply. You just twist the bottom and it comes out at the top and you just rub it on. I also like the 'Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena' scent.

Miniature clinique moisturisers.

Everyone that knows me, knows that I'm a total skin-care junkie. My all-time favourite moisturiser is the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. However, it's not cheap, at £34 for 50ml. This summer Clinique brought out some miniatures. I think the idea was that they're easier to travel with etc. But, they're £5 for 15ml. That means that they're 33p per ml. The original sized tub was 68p per ml. Plus, they come in little tubes which are great, because then you're not sticking your hands in to it every time you use it, and they last longer because you can control how much you squeeze out onto your finger. They're lasting about twice as long per ml for me. These are my absolute fave, but you can only order 4 at a time. Needless to say, when my student loan comes in I'll be getting some more :) (Plus, the date is 24 months, meaning they'll last ages, so stock up!)

Clinique Turnaround Revitalising Night Cream.

This stuff is incredible. I was looking for a heavier moisturiser for the coming Winter months as my skin gets dryer and I received some miniatures of the new Turnaround range. I love the day moisturiser, because it has shimmer in it, but I needed something thicker, and more nourishing. There is no SPF in the day cream, so really there's not much point in having both, with one for the day, if the night one works for you. I wear it morning and night and it's such a lovely cream. My skin is soft and supple and feels amazing.

Zoella beauty. (Original Scent)

As someone with a very sensitive sense of smell, I find it difficult to use strong smelling products of any kind. I religiously use Sanctuary Spa body products, almost exclusively. But being a big Zoella fan, I wanted to see what her products smelled like, so I went in to my local Superdrug in Bury and picked some up. (Of course, I had a sniff first). Honestly, the stuff smells amazing. It really reminds me of something that, I can't quite put my finger on, but I love love love it. I've been using it since, and it's been bout 3 months, and I shower about 6 times a week, and I'm only just running out. The bottles are the same price as Sanctuary, but you get twice the amount of body wash! I'd definitely recommend giving these a try if you're looking for something new.

Witnesses. (French TV Show)

So recently I decided to watch this show called Witnesses. It's french, and has English subtitles, but I don't mind that. However if you don't give it your full attention, you will miss things. I would wholeheartedly recommend watching it. It's a crime drama, from the p.o.v of the police. There are two crimes happening at once, are they connected? Who knows. You'll have to watch to find out.

I hope you liked my favourites and recommendations. Have you tried any of these things yourself? If so, let me know in the comments.


  1. I love those colouring books! I got myself one called Splendid Cities, it's so lovely! I can't believe you got yours for that price though - all the colouring books here cost $15 - $20. I'm tired of our poor economy, haha. The Dove deodorant sounds like it has lovely scents, I'm not surprised you picked on up!


  2. I've not tried the Dove deodorants yet but they sound amazing! I also need to try the Clinique skincare as I haven't tried anything from the brand yet! Great post! XO -Kim
