These are a few of my favorite things that I have been loving during the month of November.
Some of my favorite fashion items this month have been plaid, like the plaid scarf I purchased off Amazon. I love it because not only is it nice and big, but it reminds me of Christmas! I have also been loving my Xhilaration Juniors Mock Neck Fit & Flare Dress from Target which began the love affair with mock or high neck lines.
For lipsticks, I often switched between NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu, NYX Matte Lipstick in Pure Red, and Milani’s Naturally Chic. This month, I fell in love with a new foundation, Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation and on my eyes, I used a matte brown eyeshadow from my e.l.f. Beauty Must Haves Eyeshadow Book in Nude and Foxy from my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette as a base and highlight. For my cheeks, I nixed the blush and opted for a light, golden, shimmery highlight instead. My favorite is Studio Baked Highlighter in Moonlight Pearls by e.l.f.
In November, I ate a lot of maple & brown sugar oatmeal and tuna sandwiches.
I also discovered a new drink this past month and I am so happy I did because it quickly become one of my new favorites. I typically don’t like to stray far from what I know when it comes to my favorite food and drinks, but moving away from home has inspired me to try new things and not be afraid. This past month, I tried my usual hot chocolate with a twist, soy milk.
For me, it is never too early to start celebrating the holiday season and one of my absolute favorite Christmas movies is Elf.
For music, I really loved listening to the Mumford & Sons Station on iTunes Radio, The Gardiner Sisters, Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood, Out Of My League by Fitz and The Tantrums, a lot of old school songs like Crusin’ by Smokey Robinson and You’re Still A Young Man by Tower Of Power and a lot of Christmas music. For a complete list of songs, check out what I’ve been listening to on repeat in November. Also, be on the lookout for a playlist of my all time favorite Christmas songs, which I will be posting soon.
Also for the month of November, I reacquainted my love for Pinterest. Follow me on Pinterest, if you’d like.
