November Monthly Favorites

img_5949

Another month has swung past us, why must this year go so slowly? but one month ends means another monthly favorites, I did a poll on my twitter about if I should stick to my plan and start monthly favourites in January OR do one for the rest of the year and all the votes said do November and December as well..

Here we go…

Home – These two candles from Next are by far my new favorite scents! Mulled Wine and Gingerbread, I got them in a bit of a wim and was a little worried they would be to sickly as some scented candles can be, but while they are strong in wax form once lit they are wonderfully subtle scented and are delightful! If you see them please try them out, there is reed defuses too in the same scents, they do a little gift set too which you can try all the scented candle range.

Treats – Its that time of year, hot chocolate season and I have been obsessed with these lovely little things from Options, strawberry flavored and delicious! I found them when I was doing Slimming World a few years back and have loved them since! they taste very similar to the strawberry creme you get in the selection boxes.

Beauty – Two for this month, or three depending on how you look at it, these two eyebrow products are my absolute favorite, I have tried everything going besides getting microblading and these have been the two best ones I have used, one is a mascara for your little eyebrow hairs and the other is a pencil.

Imperal Leather do this amazing bath product, I found it last year but in a bubble bath form and they have also got a shower cream version which I needed to get! it smells exactly like cherry bakewells, you can smell the pastry! its delightful!

Baby – I am obsessed with baby clothes, and seeing as my little girl is called Robin, I have taken the opportunity to go out there and find all the clothes I can with robins on them, this one is from Boden but I found it on ebay, its so pretty in person and she looks cute while wearing it! I have found a few more Boden items on ebay which I will definitely show you when they arrive. who can resist that cute red breasted bob!

Entertainment – Gaming again for my entertainment, we dont really watch much tv in our house but we do play a lot of games and lately I have been sitting down enjoying Rainbow Six Siege with a few friends on my xbox, its a lot of fun, you have four game modes, Terrorist Hunt, Protect the Hostage, Extract Hostage and Disarm Bomb and the aim of it all is to win hah, it has an offline mode which you play with 4 other people against bots OR if you are feeling adventurous there is a multiplayer mode which you play against other people around the world. I have had so much fun on this game lately and there is a new update coming soon with three new characters you can play as. exciting times haha

Animal Crossing New Leaf on the good old DS, which Mr S got me for christmas last year, I keep forgetting about it but once in a while I pick it up and play it like crazy, its just coming to the end of the year in my little town and the snow is starting to fall, you are a Mayor in charge of a town, you have to help build things and talk to the villagers who change often.. its really relaxing and i’m trying to get into a routine where I play it every day so I don’t put it down and forget to pick it up again in a months time.. if you have a DS I highly recommend you pick it up as its just such a lovely little game to take your mind off things.

Music

‘I feel sexy and free, like glitter is rainin’ on me’

While this is now classed as ‘old’ its such a lovely upbeat song that I have listened to a lot lately, nothing special about it, its just a lot of fun to dance to.

and that’s it

Until next time

October Monthly Favorites #blogtober

I did a poll back in May on my twitter, regarding doing monthly favorites for the new year, while everyone said it was a good idea, I wanted to do one for October, seeing as October is my favorite of the months..

So here we go..

BeautySleepy by Lush and the Vanilla and Pumpkin from The Body Shop body creams are just the best, I have been using Sleepy on not only R but on myself too and its wonderful, I have found it really relaxes me after a shitty day and I cannot get enough of it.

Vanilla and Pumpkin body lotion I put on after I have a bath, I love the smell of it, I have always been a fan of The Body Shop body lotion/butter and I feel that I need to go get a few more pots before it sells out.

Fashion – I am not the most fashionable person in the world, I live in leggings and dresses, but I have been on the hunt for a copper colored knee length skirt for a while and I finally found one in sainsburys, I love it! its so comfortable and has actual pockets which is a plus in women’s clothing and I have been wearing it constantly! love a good skirt!

Home – I am pusheen mad, my collection of the fat grey cat is growing and growing and when I found this cookie jar, I had to buy it! its a really nice size and is currently full of custard cremes and party rings.. expect more Pusheen in future monthly favorites!

Treats – Its October, so naturally its also Halloween all month long, and all the stores are full of delightful treats and sweets and these are my favorite, I got some when I went to Birmingham to meet some friends and since then I have been getting a packet whenever I go shopping, they are strawberry pencils and are from Sainsburys and quite frankly, yummy!

EntertainmentBrave is my all time favorite pixar film, its beautifully animated and the story is inspiring and I have had to buy the soundtrack too as that is equally fantastic, I highly recommend everyone sit and watch this film, it makes me cry each time I see it.

Destiny 2 was finally launched and I have been playing it a lot, the story is a little short but I am having a lot of fun doing all the side missions with my friend.

Music‘I was the one who had it all, I was the master of my fate, I didn’t need anybody in my life, I learnt the truth to late...‘ 

This is from the song ‘Evermore’ from the newly released remaster of Beauty and the Beast sung by Dan Stevens, I have had this song pretty much on repeat since I heard it and I love it, it’s just beautifully sung, the vocals are wonderful and it actually makes me a little weepy when I hear it. If you haven’t seen the remaster yet I recommend you do so!

Random – Since I decided to do blogtober I have been writing down all my ideas into a note book, this one, I have planned all the way to January now and it has given me a new lease of life and i’m starting to really love blogging again and I cannot wait to show you all my new ideas in the new year!

My phone, its an iPhone 6 plus and I am addicted to it, but without it I wouldn’t have met such wonderful people on twitter, mainly Becca from My Girls and Me who has been there for me through a lot and I am so grateful for her friendship, one day we WILL meet up and I cannot wait for that day.

And there is my October monthly favorites, what things did you love from this month?

Until next time
