November Favourites 2014

Well, I think this is the latest I have ever put up a favourites post... it's the 11th December already - I do apologise!
November seems like a long old time ago now, but me being me I had written down a list of things I wanted to include in a November favourites post so I have not forgotten!
I was lucky enough to tick something off my bucket list in November and that was to see Wicked.
I have always wanted to see it and for years now I have been praying it would come to our nearest theater, so last year when it was announced it was going to be on at the Mayflower, Southampton my Mum immediately bought us tickets for it and after over a year of waiting we finally got to see it!
It lived upto and exceeded every expectation I had, after listening to the soundtrack for months before it was amazing to finally see the whole story put together. It was a totally faultless and I will hands down be seeing it again for sure. Both witches were incredible and Glinda made me laugh out loud, she was brilliant! Not going to lie.... it was emotional!

After trying out a few products from theBalm in November two of them have found themselves in my new everyday make-up routine. Bahama Mama* and Mary-Lou-manizer* have taken the place of my Sleek contour palette and are now the products I use to contour and highlight! To see my full reviews of these click here and here.

My go-to lipstick of the month had to be Mac's Rebel. My favourite berry shade for the winter, I use this lippy all the time - I'm definitely going to have to re-purchase by the end of this season I reckon!

I think I mentioned these in my last favourites but I'm still using them daily and that is Glade's Honey & Chocolate candle. I have about 4 or 5 of these dotted around my home now, they have been on offer in co-op so I have stocked up while they were cheap! The smell is amazing, it smells a bit like Angel (perfume) and it lasts for hours! Perfect for the home at this time of year.

A new perfume in my life now and that is Kenzo Flower which I have become increasing obsessed with. I got this from my Vivabox* (read about that here!) and have been wearing it constantly since getting it! I know this is more of a light, summery fragrance but because it's new to me I can't help but use it everyday at the moment!

Last but not least is a cheeky clothing item! This Central Perk Friends T-shirt is from Primark and was only £6! Being a huge 'Friends' fan I picked it up straight away, how cute is it? It fits so well, I love cosy everyday t-shirts like this and I have bought quite a few recently from Primarni! Bargain!

  5. I almost bought that tee from Primark, but I had to restrain myself.
    That Kenzo perfume smells so nice, Poundworld have a perfume called Story of a Flower (or something like that) that smells the exact same.
