November favourites

So it's that time of the year for of course, a monthly favourites. This is actually the first monthly favourites I've done on my blog because for last month I did an October playlist which I'll link here. I feel like this month has flown by and Christmas is approaching extremely quickly! I don't have many favourites this month but I will share what I have with you anyway.

Body and hair:
My first two things are the Charles Worthington long lasting max hold hairspray and the Alice and Eliza body mist from Marks and Spencers. Normally I'm not a hairspray user but what with the weather being so crazy and windy lately, I've been finding that if I wear my hair curled to school it's dropping out really quickly. But if i spray my hair with this before I leave my curls last all day no matter the weather, which means this product is in my good books. Another thing that I find really hard to do is get through a whole bottle of spray or body mist because I start usuing one and then I either forget about it after a while or move on to another scent. But with this body mist from the Alice and Eliza collection at M&S I'm loving it so much that I'm even considering buying another bottle when I've finished it which will probably be quite soon! It's the scent amber and black plum and I'm rubbish at describing smells but honestly that's exactly what it smells like, very fruity. I have been making sure i leave it on top of my drawers so I see it before I leave for school everyday and can give myself a quick spritz.

Now in my books it isn't a proper monthly favourites if it doesn't include a candle, am i right? This month the candle I have been constantly burning is a Yankee candle in the scent apple crumble. I said before that I'm rubbish at describing scents so all i can say about this is that it smells quite spicy and sometimes when I burn it I get a whiff of cinnamon, but I could be imagining that... Either way I have been enjoying burning this so much that I bought another one so I could have a new one to take a photo of, totally not because I just have an addiction to candles...

So in the makeup department there haven't been very many new things that I've been loving as I've been trying to save my money to buy my friends Christmas presents. But of course there have been a few things, one of which being the Technic highlighter and the other being the Natural Collection blusher in Rosey glow. The technic highlighter was something I bought on whim from Amazon as it was only a couple of pounds and I thought it looked like Benefit high beam and I was pleasantly surprised. I've been using it either as a highlight on my cheek bones or a little bit of it mixed in with my primer to give my face an overall glow. I will link it here for you and I would definitely recommend it as a dupe for highbeam. You may have seen my other makeup favourite for the month in my recent boots haul.. This blush has just been an amazing shade for autumn and it's so pigmented for a £1.99 product! If I've been wearing blusher this month then nine times out of ten this has been the shade.

Music and Food:
Some of you may know that One Directions new album Made in the a.m came out this month and so of course that is my music favourite as I've been listening to it on repeat! I think that this is their best album so far and my favourite songs are  End of the day, History, Temporary fix and Olivia. When i listened to Olivia I internally cried over the fact that my name is Kate... But moving swiftly on my favourite food of this month is a bit of a weird one and it's chocolate mini rolls. My mum bought a huge packet of them and I've been having them in my lunch for school and they're just really tasty!!

So that's it for this months favourites, I hoped you enjoyed this. Bring on December!

I also thought I would let you know that for the month of December I am going to be doing multiple collabs with some amazing people from within the bloggersphere. These posts won't replace any of my normal posts but will be extras, so instead of uploading twice a week I might upload three times instead. These collabs aren't scheduled for certain days and could go up at any time, so keep your eyes peeled for them. I hope you enjoy.
