November has been busy; well, it’s certainly busy for me and my boring little life. At the beginning of the month I travelled back up north to spend a few days with my family, and celebrate my nephews fourth birthday. I can’t believe he’s four, he’s growing up so fast. My blog has had a revamp, let me know what you think; I absolutely love it. AND, I got my powerchair!!! I’m not going to say too much as I have a whole post planned but I bloody love it.

Mandara Spa Shea and Coconut Body Butter (part of a gift set)* | £16 | Time to Spa |

Shea and coconut are two of my favourite scents so when this landed on my doorstep, I was over the moon. I’ve featured quite a lot of Mandara Spa products on my blog and that’s because they never disappoint. They’ve recently released a Butter Collection, and this body butter came in a set with a light body butter and a lip butter – which I also love. The body butter is a thick, emollient cream that sinks into the skin quickly and leaves it hydrated and incredibly smooth. I lather myself in it after I get out of the shower, and on my arms and legs before bed. I simply can’t get enough. It smells so good too.

Lancome La Vie Est Belle EDP – 75ml | £64.95 | All Beauty |

I know, I know, I fall in love with perfumes like I fall in love with puppies – very easily. My mum was gifted this (I live three hours from my mum so it’s not like I had to smell it everyday) and my jealous little arse needed a bottle of my own. I’d smelled it a few times and always liked it but since I’ve been wearing it, I can’t get enough. It’s such a sexy, feminine fragrance that is so unlike anything else I own. Even the bottle is sexy! As it’s an EDP it lasts a lot longer on the skin which is why I always go for them. The notes are: Concrete of Iris Pallida, Jasmin Sambac Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute and Patchouli Essence. Go smell it if you haven’t already.

The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquids | £6 | The Body Shop |

I did a full review of these liquid lipsticks here and I’m still so impressed. I’ve been working my way through all twelve of the colours and they’re all so pigmented and beautiful. Today I wore Tokyo Lotus and was asked by two different people what I was wearing. I can’t believe how good they are for the price. Comfortable, long-wearing, pigmented, amazing. Go swatch these babies.

Mac Extra Dimension Skinfinish – Soft Frost | £24 | Mac |

I kept seeing these highlighters all over Instagram and since I’m a massive fan of the glow, I needed to add one to my collection. I went in-store and swatched all four of the colours, and although loving each, I decided on Soft Frost because it was completely different to all the other highlighters I have (and I have a lot). Soft Frost is a cool icy colour with a lilac sheen. It’s supposed to last up to ten hours but I’ve yet to test that as I very rarely wear makeup that long. It can be quite a subtle glow or built up for a much more intense shine. I felt like an ice queen the first time I wore it, it’s simply beautiful.

 GHD V Gold Copper Luxe Styler Premium Gift Set | £135 | Look Fantastic |

I lent my mum my ghd’s last year and am yet to be reunited with them. After months using my Diva Pro straighteners, I decided to commit to buying a new set of ghd’s. This set are not only fab at straightening and curling my hair, they’re copper! Bloggers goals right there. They came in a cute, heat resistant black and copper bag, with a protective plate guard and a copper nail varnish. I’m impressed with them, they don’t snag or pull at my hair, and glide through my locks very smoothly. Good hair day, all the time; well kind of, when I can be bothered.

What have you been loving in November?
