November faves!

Oh my goodness it’s December already! How did that happen? Seriously?

1. Lindt Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate

This chocolate is divine! Dare I say I haven’t even been eating Cadbury’s that much now that I’ve been nibbling on this bar! (I wanted to take the photo before I opened this (my third) bar but what can you do!?) As a lover of a bit of dark chocolate every now and then, this bar is divine – and the hint of salted caramel literally makes me dribble!

2. Zara Printed Mini Skirt

When I lay eyes on this skirt I instantly fell for it! And I’m sorry but at £17.99 there was no way I was risking waiting for Christmas! Once all my deadlines are done and I’m home for Christmas I’ve got a couple of outfits in mind to do posts on, including this gem and the ASOS top mentioned below!

3. Twinings Gingerbread Green Tea

As I said in my October favourites, I’ve recently dabbled in the world of green tea and following from my salted caramel obsession, the box mentioned that ‘If I like that one, I should try the Gingerbread Green Tea’ – and that’s just what I did! This one is perfect for this Christmassy time of year and smells just like gingerbread (funnily enough – I mean you’d never have guessed it would you?). It’s a lovely warming drink and a bit lighter than a gingerbread latter – however I’m greatly looking forward to the day I get my hands on one of them very soon.

4. ASOS Crop Top with Long Sleeves and Turtle Neck

Now, for a long time I’ve been oggling over this online since I saw it and thought – it would go so amazing with my boyfriend jeans! And I’ve been constantly checking online for (one like this) it to be available in my size!! And so when it was, I instantly sent it to my checkout and here it is – such as nice material and perfect fit, I was right – it does go splendid with my boyfriend jeans (another outfit post that will hopefully be appearing soon).

5. Mockingjay Part 2

It’s finally out!! Ahh! I’m a huge fan of the Hunger Games series and a few weeks ago when the finale came out, I got a lovely visit from my friend Meg and we went out for a nice weekend in York that included a trip to the cinema to watch this amazing film! As per usual, this final film was incredible. Tense and exciting and although I’ve read the books, it left use both on the edge of our seats! I’m gutted they’re now over, but I’ve promised my brother I’ll go and see it again with him, when I get home next week!! 

Has anyone else seen it yet? What did you think?

So here’s a few bits I’ve been loving this month and well now it’s basically Christmas so I’m pretty much loving everything!!!

What have been your November favourites?

    I loved the new MockingJay Part 2! It was so great and I am also disappointed that they are over.. Jennifer Lawrence is just.. perfect.. even when she has spit hanging out of her mouth

      I totally agree! She's so hilarious and just an amazing actress and person!

    Mocking Jay Part 2 was amazing in my opinion, the only part I didn't like and I think was not needed is the one where those mutants showed up and where Finnick was killed. I just think that scene is too much 🙂 But overall, I really enjoyed the movie and Jennifer is an incredible actress. x-Leta | The Nerdy Me

      Yes it was a bit much wasn't it, I loved Finnick as well! ;( I felt they battled with the mutants for a bit too long too. I did love the film though!

    Oooh, I must check out the Gingerbread tea, I've not tried that, as I usually stick to English Breakfast and Earl Grey. Great favourites. Have a lovely weekend. x/MadisonChinese Cooking

    I've recently jumped on the band wagon of the obsession that is salted caramel also & I'm not sure who first thought it would be a good idea to put salt and caramel together but they are a genius!! I must try that chocolate, I'm pretty sure I've seen it in my local supermarket! Green tea is my absolute favourite so I'll definitely be picking up the gingerbread kind! & that skirt is super lovely 🙂 Xo Gemma

      Thanks so much for your comment Gemma! I know they are truly a genius, it is so good! I really want to try the Gu salted caramel hot chocolate, it looks incredible! Yes the gingerbread one is so nice and Christmassy! Thanks, I can't believe the skirt was only £18, I really love it!

    I didn't know they did such a variety of teas. I love a cup of green tea so I'll definitely be picking up the salted caramel one as well as the gingerbread one.

    • Josie Brownlee

      Mmm I do like them (even having never really tried/liked green tea before!) There's another one that it recommends on th side of the gingerbread packet, I think it's something like caramel apple or something so that's next on my list!

    Both the chocolate and the tea sounds amazing! I love green tea, used to drink 5 cups a day, haha! I just bought a turtle neck and it's like the most amazing piece of clothing I've bought, haha, I love it! I did see Mockingjay and I must say that the first movie is still my favorite, I don't like the ending of the series, it's just so sad!Filippa ⎮ Always a Dot

      Yes I drink so much tea! I know I love mine, so comfortable and stylish. Yes agree, the end is a bit sad (but I've read the books so sort of new it was coming). I preferred Catching Fire personally!
