Monthly Favourites | November

 photo DSCF2007_zps98585fe3.jpg

I didn't actually do a monthly favourites post last month; i had a lot of different posts i wanted to do but i seemed to run out of time as i was rather busy. I haven't really switched many of the products up throughout November along with discovering a couple of new favourites.

Beauty

Topshop Bronzer in Mohawke
This is a really light bronzer that warms up the complexion really nice and it's also great to contour with because it's a matte bronzer. Also because its so light, it looks really nice and natural on the face. I really like using this bronzer and i love the mirrored packaging.

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter
I seem to go through phases of using this and up until lately i hadn't used it in ages and i forgot just how nice it is. It's a pink toned highlighter which i really like as i personally think it compliments my skintone quite well. I tend to wear this more on nights out to compliment the contouring and it gives the complexion a lovely radiant glow - I've received many compliments off people saying how radiant and glowing my skin look and it's all because of this.

Mac Lipstick in Rebel
When i first got this i only wore it a handful of times because the bold shade scared me a little bit but these past two months it has been one of my go-to lip products especially on nights out (see how i apply it here) - I'm sure you've all heard of Rebel but if not it is a really beautiful deep purple/plummy shade and its perfect for Autumn/Winter. It's a satin finish which is actually one of my favourites - it's not quite glossy or matte but it has a slight shine to it. It's really moisturising to wear, it's long lasting and I'm really loving wearing it.

Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot!
I absolutely love this palette and I've been using it non stop since i bought it. I love the variety of blush shades, there is one to suit everyone and the shades have got your covered for all occasions. They're such good quality and it's really good value for money too (5 blushes, 1 bronzer and a Watts Up sample) I absolutely love all shades you get but at the moment I'm really loving using Rockateur.

Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner
I'd heard so many good things about this, that it was about time i gave it a try and so far it's a bloody good eyeliner. I find this so easy to apply and you can control the application so easily. It's pigmented, long-lasting and so affordable too.

Christina Aguilera Perfume
I think this might be my third bottle of this - i just love it. It's such a lovely scent - it's a fruity scent with hints of musk and vanilla. This is a celebrity scent but it's different to the usual bold fruity scents, this has a much more mature note to it. I also love the lacy detailing on the bottle for this, its so pretty.

Maybelline Mastergraphic Eyeliner
I've been having a love affair with two liners these past few weeks - as well as the Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner I've also been using the Maybelline Mastergraphic Eyeliner and i really like them both. The Maybelline liner has an angled tip which at first it did take me a while to get used to handling it but now i find it really easy to manoeuvre and i can apply my liner much quicker and neater too. I also feel like this is great for winging out your liner with. It's affordable, long-lasting and pigmented. I'm really enjoying both eyeliners at the moment.

Non-Beauty:

Lake District
Me and two of my best girls took a little mini roadtrip to the Lake District for the day and it was so lovely. It was such a nice day; we had a lovely lunch, went to the Beatrix Potter Museum, walked around and stopped at a service station with the most amazing view.

Karaoke Finalist
Me and my friends also end up going to Karaoke when we go out on a Thurs night - and they are currently holding a contest. Anybody who gets up was automatically in with the chance of being chosen as a finalist and for some reason me and my friend Gemma got picked as a duo!

Wham Cosmic Sticks
I love Wham Bars and i love Strawberry Laces and combine them together and you get a rather tasty treat. Albeit a naughty sugary one but they are seriously good!

Orange is the New Black
I'm late to the bandwagon with this one, i know. At first - i didn't really see what the obsession with it was and i was starting to think it was over-rated but then i binge watched a lot of episode in one go and I'm enjoying watching it.

Lindt Salted Caramel Chocolate
Technically, this is a bit of a cheat as i only discovered it this past week but oh my lord it is so tasty i couldn't not include it. I seem to have developed a bit of an obsession with Salted Caramel - i know it sounds a bit weird but trust me, the salt is so subtle and it is seriously delicious.

Music Favourite

Ed Sheeran - Thinking Out Loud
This song is just beautiful and i can't stop listening to it. The video to it, had me mesmerised and i honestly could not stop staring at it - it's so graceful and beautiful. I would love for someone to dance with me like that.

What are some of your monthly favourites?
