Hey Internet Friends,
Its that time again! November favourites are here and can we just have a chat about how fast this year is coming to an end? Its insane! This post is more of a October to November Favourites and this is my absolute favourite time of year. Its nice and chilly without being miserable and its nearly Christmas! So exciting! So lets get started on my favourites…
Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
This lip balm is ridiculously nourishing as its packed with Vitamin E and the peppermint leaves the tingly plumping feeling all beauty addicts love!
I find it vital to have a lip balm in the winter months as my mouth gets so dry and horrid if I don’t, chapped lips look good on nobody!
The great thing about this product is its all natural and sustainable something that I feel the rest of the beauty world should be looking at doing, its incredibly important that what we use on our bodies is not just good for us and makes us feel great but is also good for the rest of the world.
What Burt’s Bees says about the product
“The original. The best. And still your favorite. Our must-have balms have been playing in purses and pockets since 1991. Beeswax conditions skin, while antioxidant Vitamin E moisturizes. A final hint of Peppermint Oil provides that one-of-a-kind refreshing tingle. The result? Smooth, supple lips everyone will be buzzing about.“
Burt’s Bees Purpose
“Most companies look out for the bottom line. We do, too. In fact, we have a triple bottom line: people, profit, planet. You can’t have one without the other two. So when we look after our own, we mean everybody: our employees, our customers, our families, ourselves. And yes, our environment, too. Our ingredients—right down to the packaging—are simple, natural, and responsible. We practice what we preach—and we hope to set the example for others to follow.“
Barry M Speed Dry Nail Paint
I love a berry coloured nail paint at this time of year and this speed dry makes it a super easy process. Barry M is my absolute favourite Nail Paint and I have too many colours for one human to ever need.
I currently have this shade on my toes and it makes me feel all cute and seasonal. Beautiful colour.
Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub
I talk about this product in great detail in an earlier post, you can read that HERE if you wish
I love scrubs all year round but find them especially essential in winter when the skin on my body gets a little drier and in need of some more love and care. This scrub has lasted me such a ridiculously long time and it smells absolutely heavenly!
I love how smooth this makes me skin and using it twice a week really makes me feel fantastic.
Honestly, I couldn’t recommend this enough!
Simple Facial Toner
This is another product that I have talked about in greater detail on another post, you can read that HERE
Since including a toner into my skincare routine my skin is a million times better in terms of oiliness, blemishes and even make up application.
Its unbelievably what a massive difference this extra step makes, I shall now always include a toner in my routine because of this product.
I feel this is especially applicable in the colder and harsher months when your skin suffers from the extremes in weather.
Urban Decay Naked 2
Since Smoky (read more HERE) game out I have abandoned my other Naked palettes and I do feel a little bad for that, but since I’ve dyed my hair a darker colour and wanting to dry a more copper based eyeshadow this palette has really become a favourite again.
Talking about how much I loved the Naked 2 was one of my original posts on this blog and its absolutely lovely to be enjoying it again, I can really create some fantastic wearable looks everyday that complement both the season and my new hair.

Jolie Papier Christmas Cards
I know its only November, before you start telling me how early and ridiculous I am, but its nice to be organised and spread the cost of Christmas so when I found this absolutely Gorgeous set of cards by Jolie Papier I was so unbelievably happy.
I love sending Christmas Cards to friends and family and when I start to receive them at my house it really makes me look forward to Christmas.
This set is truly beautiful, it comes with the single card design of cute little foxes, really thick good quality envelopes and a beautiful gold sticker to seal the envelopes really making these cards feel special.
Im not an especially religious person and a lot of my friends aren’t either so I think this design is the perfect way of sending a greeting and cute little message for the festive period.
The cards themselves contain a cute message inside that says
“Sending warm wishes for a happy holiday season”
And inclusive of the box is a cute little card explaining the hummingbird stickers, because that message is so sweet I am going to copy it out for you.
“Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. Hummingbirds open our eyes to the wonder of the world and inspire us to open our hearts to loved ones and friends. Like a hummingbird, we aspire to hover and saver each moment as it passes, embrace all that life has to offer and to celebrate the joys of everyday. The hummingbirds delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life sweetest creation. Jolie Papier products have set the standard for style and quality. Thank you for sharing life celebrations with Jolie Papier“
Hope you guys enjoyed this months favourites.
