November Favourites 2015




I know November has already passed by and we're pretty much 19 days away from Christmas, but as it was a very exciting month for me (it was my birthday after all), I've decided to go ahead and share some of my favourites with you.

Here are some of my November favourites:

I've always been a fan of Adele since her first album release and when I thought she couldn't get better, she proved me wrong. 25 by Adele, is one of the best albums I've ever had the priviledge (yes, priviledge) of listening to. I haven't stopped and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon either. Family and friends, please bare with me.

Winter is the best time of year to scrub and despite feeling like I could start a collection with how many TBS products I own, my favourite body scrub is by far the The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Scrub (I could not find a link to this product on the US or UK website). This is perfect for me during winter. I'm a fruity scents kind of girl, and this isn't too abrasive but smells beautifully and the smells lingers on for quite some time.

Although I do love wearing make up, I don't enjoy putting on heavy products on a daily basis. I like to keep it simple and for my type of skin, I feel like The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream (02 Medium) is my perfect choice. It's light, easy to apply, and gives a nice coverage. It's not a foundation, but it does the job at keeping things simple but dapper.

For impeccable wintery eyes, I've been obsessed with the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Eyeshadow (Pink Mink). These four colors really have done it for me this year and even though I feel like everyone is getting a bit bored of seeing me with the same colours over and over again, I've never felt prettier than when wearing this eyeshadow.

One of my birthday presents this year was a High neck Sweater by MO (Portuguese Store), and in spite of winter in Portugal this year not being the coldest it could be (I love the cold), I use every excuse to wear this sweater. It's the coziest thing that can be worn with anything.

I've always been addicted to buying books (I do buy alot and don't get around to reading all of them before buying even more), and this past Summer I purchased a few classic pocket books, and among one of them was 'Sense and Sensibility' by Jane Austen. After loving it the first time around, I decided to re-read it and this is a beautifully well written book. If you haven't read this yet, stop what you're doing and go read that book immediately (you'll love it I promise).

I find that winter is all about the comforting hot beverages, and I got introduced by a family member to an amazing range called Yogi Tea. Saying that I didn't bought quite a few boxes of different flavours, isn't saying much. Tea is great for for yor body and immune system and at this time of year, great for detoxification. My obsession this past month has by far been the dandelion and cinnamon Detox Yogi Tea  It smells and tastes like winter in a tea.

  4. Such great favourites hun! I would really love to try the scrub, as I love anything grapefruit scented. Also I have been loving The Body Shops' products at the moment. Also I think that it is safe to say that we have all been completely obsessed with Adele's amazing new album. Also here’s my latest YouTube video, https://www.youtube.com/veebzboo. I’d love some feedback from you, and if you enjoyed it please leave a like - I’d really appreciate it!:D

    1. Right?! Anything grapefuit scented is perfect for me. Even my candles are fruitscented. Should I say I have a problem? ahahah

      Adele's perfect. I'm sad the tickets to see her ran out before I could buy any.

      I'll take a look lovely!

    1. I just laughed really loud at this.
      It's literally 'Hello from the other side'. I've had 'When we were young' on repeat these past couple of days. Such a lovely song.

      Thank you!
