November Favourites

It's been a while since I've done a monthly favourites post, partly because I haven't particularly had any new favourites! But here I am with what I've been loving lately:

I've fallen back in love with The Body Shop recently, and I picked up this cleansing butter a few weeks ago after shopping around for a new cleanser. This literally melts eye-make up so I use it at the end of the day to make my face feel squeaky clean, I love it.

This is very different from the usual type of scent I go for, it's quite unusual. But I really like it, its refreshing and the smell lingers all day. It feels quite luxurious in its glass bottle, I'm trying to be stingy with it to make it last!

I've been waiting to use this for a while and it didn't disappoint. It's quite a novelty having a bubble bar I can re-use, and I love the smell. It made my water nice and bubbly too.

One of these days I'll stop raving about Guerlain! But for now I'm afraid I'm going to keep on banging the drum! This foundation is fairly light coverage, I suppose it may be better suited to the spring/summer months, but I actually find it brightens up my skin and gives it a nice glow for winter. 

I must say I'm not usually one for life-planning/self-help books, but this one has really impressed me. I saw it mentioned on a couple of other blogs and as I've been feeling a little lost lately, I wanted to delve a bit deeper and make sense of my feelings. I'm still only on the first part and haven't started on the workbook section yet, but I've been recommending this to everyone.

This is a bit of a mixed bag because I started watching AHS on Netflix and it really scares me, but in a good way. It's not really my usual sort of thing (I'm more of a PLL / Gossip Girl fan) but I feel compelled to keep on watching it. It's quite messed up, but the acting is incredible.

Shamefully, I've been using the same concealer for ages, it was actually disgusting. I popped into Boots and picked this up, I wasn't sure how good the coverage was going to be or whether the shade would fit, but it's amazing, and affordable.

My friend bought me this book for my birthday, and I'm currently fluctuating between this and the Desire Map. This book is so uplifting (it was made into a film a few years ago but the book is better) and is the memoir of Liz who leaves behind her settled life in America and sets off travelling to discover what it is she really wants from life. I'm absolutely loving it.

This has been a bit of lengthy post, with more faves than I realised!
What do you think of my favourites this month?
