Sorry again for the long time since I last posted, but this is a long one which I have been working on offline for a while so I hope you enjoy 🙂
So this blog fans, is my first ever (hopefully to become a monthly feature) favourites post! If you’ve never read one of these its exactly what it says in the title… All my favourite things from a given month and this month that of course means a reviews of my faves from November.
Now this won’t only feature items which I have purchased recently and may also contain old items and products which I’ve rediscovered but hopefully you’ll enjoy it just the same 🙂
The way I’ll lay this out each month is to choose one item from a variety of different categories including makeup, clothes and home (as well as much more) to hopefully give you a bit more insight into me and the things I love, as well as providing you with inspiration! Anyway, that’s enough of an intro so let’s get started…
So technically I’m cheating on this one already by picking two items, but they real really similar so I think I can just about get away with it! This month my item(s) of clothing are the gorgeous Brushed Mini Skirts I got from New Look recently. I love the first one I got so much that I had to go back and get another in a different colour and to be honest I’ll probably keep buying more!
These skirts are uber flattering, a lovely cut and finish and in their nice thick fabric are perfect for Autumn/Winter (plus they weren’t too expensive either!) Check out the New Look website here to see the whole range of these skirts as they stock them in so many different colour and patterns it’s unbelievable!
I love their nod to the sixties in the cut they just feel so girly yet with a professional twist and every time I’ve worn these I’ve had loads of people commenting on how nice they look!
The only downside is that they are really short (in true sixties style) and bearing in mind that I’m only 5ft that shows just how short they really are! However, I wear this as a high waisted skirt, so if you were taller you could wear this lower on the hips to combat this.
They are still available to pick up now so I’d advise you to get on over to New Look and pick one up as they are perfect for so many different occasions 🙂
This was such an easy pick! I’m completely obsessed with my mid height black Chelsea boots from Primark! I bought these in October (they are still on sale now and you can view them in my Boot post) and to tell the truth I’ve worn these at every given opportunity since I purchased them!
They are perfect to wear with both jeans and dresses/skirts and can be styled for most situations! I wear these to work, out for brunch with friends and family or just as a casual outfit to the shops 🙂
Obviously because they were from Primark they were an absolute bargain so if you’re looking for an ankle height pair of black boots this Winter then I would definitely recommend these as I have nothing bad to say about them!
In my opinion Winter is the season of accessories! From hats, scarves and stoles it’s my absolute favourite time to really style up a look with a few accessories which can be carried from year to year and really take a look to another level!
My personal favourite accessory of the moment has to be my Laura Shilton gloves which I picked up in TK Maxx. I bought these way back in summer as I really wanted a pair of driving gloves (yes, I confess that I use driving gloves all year around!) but very quickly these have turned into my winter gloves.
Although they aren’t very thick, because they are real leather they keep my hands really warm and they look so good in their cropped style! Again I’ve had so many compliments on them which is good because they are the most expensive gloves I’ve ever bought! TK Maxx had loads of different styles of gloves in store so take a trip down to check them out as you’ll pick yourself up a real bargain and get hold of a pretty unique looking pair of gloves, it’s definitely worth the investment 🙂
I know I keep talking about winter, but now the weather has well and truly turned arctic, it’s more important than ever to look after your hair (and skin)!
To keep my hair from getting dry I use the Schwarzkopf Got2b styling oil after washing and before styling. Whilst it feels fairly oily on your hands it coats the ends really well and cannot be seen once styled. I find that it definitely makes a hug difference to the condition of my hair even after just one use. Definitely add this to your winter must haves!
In a similar style to above, my face products are my Skin Therapy eye make-up remover, cleanser and toner. I honestly don’t have much to say about these other than that they are absolutely essential, especially a this time of year and that using these budget products really helps give your skin a boost and a glow 🙂
So I was going to write loads more, but it’s already the 17th December and I still haven’t posted this so I am going to be lazy and just abbreviate the rest of what I was going to write. I promise I’m going to try and get better at this soon 🙂
Anyway here are the rest:
House: Ikea TV Stand and organiser
Music: James Bay!! (love him – please check him out!)
Food: Not really food but I am obsessed with Costa Hot Chocolate at the moment!
TV/Movie: Orange Is The New Black – hurry up season 3
Shop: Almost always one of my faves, but really delivered in November so definitely New Look 🙂
Perfume: One I rediscovered again recently is Calvin Klein Euphoria such a beautiful every day smell
Sorry for the long post! These will be so much easier to do once I am on Youtube as all I will need to do here is a summary 🙂 Sorry also for the length of time it has taken me to find the time to put this together, I have been working on it in dribs and drabs for weeks, but finally it is as good as done! I hope you enjoyed this but please let me know in the comments below what else you’d like to see here 🙂 Also, let me know what your face things are at the moment so I can check them out for December!
Lots of love, Leanne xx
