My Favourites: November

No. This time I mean it. Seriously it's December? I refuse to write a comment about how I can't believe that another month has gone by and feel as if I've achieved nothing.  November was a magical month for me and instead of doing just beauty favourites, I've gone for a whole random lot of favourites. Pfsh when is it never?

Pukka Detox Tea

A non-beauty favourite this month has been Pukka's Detox tea. To say I haven't really been up to keep on my healthy eating this month would be the understatement of the year. A lot of lazy days called for Deliveroo and I'm a little embarrassed to say that my drinking and going out habits have been a bit on the heavy side. I'm not the biggest fan of aniseed but for some reason, the mixture is rather pleasant! I love a cup of this before bed and I will definitely be picking up quite a few more different tea types from Pukka as I'm so impressed!

Eat Natural Protein Bars

As much as I know a lot of people say that these cereal and nature bars actually contain a lot more sugar than we think lalalala, I adore these. I swear these are the one type of on-the-go bar that fills me up for a relatively good amount of time. I've tried quite a few of the other flavours but I'm not a fan of any apart from this one. It's great to chuck in your bag for a nibble in between classes, classic student life! Basically this tastes of peanut butter and chocolate and as it contains the words "protein" and "natural" I'm like, yeahhhh these are healthy....

Diana F+ Camera

I feel as if I have completely neglected quite a few of my film cameras recently. As they are usually quite expensive to get the film develop I try and use them quite sparingly. During this month I've been loving using my Diana F+ camera to capture all the pretty autumn trees and colours. I took this on my trip to Berlin as well and cannot wait until all the film gets developed! I will definitely be sharing a few of the photos up here because the camera really captures scenery in such a distorted and beautiful way.

Essie Nail Polish in Carry On

My first beauty favourite of this month would have to be this nail polish. I have been practically wearing it on my toenails and nails everyday this month. I mentioned this shade in my Favourite Autumnal Nail Polish blog post  (pluuuugggg in!) and this has been a steady favourite. For some reason a lot of my Essie nail polishes don't have that great of a staying power, but this one does? It's so weird. It barely chips and if I do the whole actual filing of my nails, bottom coat and being patient, you know, actually take some time on it, it lasts such a good amount of time. I love it because it can go with so much and think it would suit both long and short nails!

Sleek Blush in Flushed

Okay I know I only owned this product for two weeks in November, but I'm telling you, I'm obsessed. I don't think I've even touched another blush since I picked this one up. It's the perfect shade for my skin-tone and I'm obsessed. It blends so beautifully and my makeup brushes pick up the product so well.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Body Scrub

Apart from the gorgeous smell this body scrub has been an absolute life saver. Once the weather turned I was petrified that my keratosis pilaris would flame up, gross, Caroline people really don't want to know. I use this scrub everyday in the shower and honestly, it has been a total god send. It's so nourishing as well as a great exfoliator leaving my skin free of dry grossness and all around making it smooth too. If you suffer from really dry skin, I got this on Feel Unique and the moisturizer is incredible too!

So there we go, a few of my November favourites! Now can time stop moving so fast please? I totally can't keep up in remembering that Monthly Favourites are a thing that occur every month! What are some of the things you've been loving this month?


  1. That camera is so cute! Just went and looked it up and what a good price too. Might have to add that to my wishlist :) x

    1. It's a great camera but definitely beware that not only is the film quite expensive but also finding a place to develop it in 4x4 is so difficult and so pricey! For 16 photos (if you're lucky and don't mess up any photos) you usually have to pay around £10 which is quite heartbreaking! xx

  3. I completely agree that the months are flying by!
    The blush and nail colour look beautiful, especially for this time of the year, and I really like the look of the camera.
