November Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my November favorites. I wanted to mention that I am going to be doing Blogmas this year and I’m excited about it, so look out for that coming soon! Back to the favorites, I feel like I have a pretty good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with Beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my November BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below. My first Boxy favorite is the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light. This is a full coverage eyeshadow base that gives your shadow a longer wear time and amplifies both matte and shimmer shadows. I’ve been using this since I got it and I really like it. It has just the right amount of tack to it, but it’s not too sticky or too wet. This has made it’s way into my rotation of eyeshadow bases and I definitely recommend giving it a try if you’re in the market for an eyeshadow base.

My next Boxy favorite is the Violet Voss Violet Sunset Eyeshadow and Pressed Pigment Palette. I’m not going to say too much about this because I have a ‘Three Recent Looks’ post coming soon with it, but I really, really like it. The color story is nice, the formulation and color payoff is great and it’s very versatile. Definitely a palette I recommend, and from this I’ve been looking through the Violet Voss website to see which palette I want to buy next.

My last Boxy favorite and second to last beauty favorite is the Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer. This bronzer is supposed to give you a sun kissed Hawaiian look and it really does. It’s long-wearing, really smooth and super buildable. This bronzer has quickly made it’s way into my top favorites.

And my last beauty favorite is my Thanksgiving makeup. I always try to do something in the fall color palette, usually orange/brown/gold and this year I’m super happy with what I came up with.

Moving on to more random favorites, we have Thanksgiving itself. It’s always one of my favorite holidays because the food is so good and it’s nice to just chill and hangout. I make apple pie every year and it always comes out great, but this year it seemed extra good and I think it looked really nice.

I have a couple of TV show favorites and they both happen to come from Netflix. The first is the Great British Bake Off. The current season just finished and I can honestly say that this has been one of my favorite seasons in a while. I genuinely really liked the final three so much and would have been happy with any of them winning. I won’t spoil who won in case anyone hasn’t seen it, but I will tell you that it made me cry. I swear I get the most emotional watching baking shows lol. 

My second Netflix favorite is season 4 of Selling Sunset. I watched it in 3 days. I think the combination of having to wait so long between seasons 3 and 4 coupled with the fact that I had seen and heard some things from the season as they were happening made me want to watch it more and it was SO good. I cannot wait for season 5 to come out because I am team Jason and Chrishell and I think it’s going to be really sweet to see their relationship on screen. Also, the fashion is incredible and the houses are just next level. 

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s Joe Bonamassa’s new album Time Clocks. I swear every time Joe releases an album it’s better than the one before it and that is definitely the case with this one. It’s genre bending, which Joe is incredible at, but it’s still the blues at the roots and I love so many of the songs. I definitely, definitely recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t yet. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we have any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your November favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great November :).

November Favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s the end of the month I’m going to be doing my November favorites. Even though I feel like this month absolutely flew by, I have a pretty good mix of favorites so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my November BoxyCharm box and if you haven’t read that, I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Natasha Denona Peak Palette. This is an exclusive, five pan palette for BoxyCharm and it has all of the colors of fall. All of these shades comes from the Safari, Sunrise and and Biba palettes. I’ve done a few looks with this palette so far and I really like it. All the shades are really smooth, very pigmented and blend really nicely.

This is the look I did with the palette on Thanksgiving. I’m really happy with how it came out.

My second Boxy favorite is the Bodyography Eye Pencil Duo. These pencils are infused with coconut oil and they glide on nicely. You do get a nice crisp line with these but you can also easily smudge them. I got mine in the shades Onyx and Black Walnut. Onyx isn’t the blackest black but it does add depth and pulls together a look and Black Walnut is a very dark brown that is great for smoking out a more neutral look.

And my last beauty favorite is from the Fall Walmart beauty box. It’s the Gold Bond Ultimate Strength and Resilience lotion. This is a really good lotion for this time of year because it has seven plumping moisturizers, three vitamins, proteins and lipids. So it keeps your skin radiant and moisturized.

Moving on I have a holiday favorite and it’s Thanksgiving. Even though Thanksgiving was a little different this year I still really enjoyed it. I did glam from the waist up but had leggings and slippers on which I don’t normally do. But overall it was a very chill day and I still managed to eat too much food. 

My second to last favorite is a Twitch stream and it’s Tony Kanaan’s Twitch stream. I didn’t really know that TK was on Twitch until I saw a tweet from him saying that he was live and since then I’ve only missed a few streams. It’s genuinely such a fun environment to be in, he’s really interactive with his chat and I laugh so much when I’m in his stream. If you’re looking for a race car driver or iRacing stream to watch on Twitch I definitely recommend checking his stream out. And if you see me in chat say hi. 

And my last favorite, a music favorite, is AC/DC’s new album Power Up (PWR UP as it’s written on the album cover). There was a lot of hype behind this album and it’s definitely lived up to all the hype. It’s very much like a classic AC/DC album, in the sound and style and it’s just a feel good album. It’s what the world needed right now for sure. If you haven’t heard it yet, I definitely recommend giving it a listen. 

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to mention because I haven’t that I am doing Blogmas again this year and I’m excited about it, so look out for those posts. If we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great November :).

November favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s getting towards the end of the month. I’m going to be doing my November favorites. I have a fun mix of things this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my November Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that post below if you haven’t read it. The first is the Amika Silken Up Dry Conditioner. This is a product that I was initially excited about because I had never used a dry conditioner before and I really like this. When I originally talked about this I used it on second day hair, just to see and it made my hair look fresher than it normally would on the second day. I usually go three or four days between hair washing, that’s what my hair likes, and I used this last week when I was sick and it really helped put some life back into my hair. So I highly recommend not only this product but Amika as a brand, they’re great.

Next we have the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I have a couple different powders that I switch between and this had made itself a spot in the rotation. It’s really silky, weightless and gives you a nice matte finish.

NSP7

This next favorite I talked a lot about in my Sephora Play unboxing, so I won’t ramble on too much. But it’s the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in 40 Pink Tea. I will say that I really like the color, it’s a nudey pink, and it’s really long lasting. I definitely recommend it.

NSP8

My last Sephora Play favorite is Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. This is like the perfect scent, it’s a very fresh with citrus, floral notes and some underlying woody hints. If you get the chance to smell it I would say do it. It’s really nice.

NSP5

My last beauty favorite is something I just bought, but already really like and it’s the e.l.f. Matte Lip Color in Tea Rose. It’s a dusty rose shade and it feels really nice on the lips, not drying at all. And the colored bit on the end pops off and it’s a built in sharpener, which is super handy and I appreciate.

NOF1

NOF2

Moving on, my next favorite is Thanksgiving. This year for Thanksgiving I had a cold, which I’m still getting over, so I wasn’t feeling super festive. But it was a really chill day and I did still make apple pie. And I’m really happy with how it came out.

NOF3

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s the new Take That album Odyssey. I’ve been giving my reaction as some songs off the album as they were being released, but now that the album’s out, just wow. It’s incredible. The new songs are fantastic, and the Odyssey version of the classic songs is so well done, very well mixed. I love everything, but if I had to pick a favorite or favorites, I haven’t stopped listening to Everlasting, Spin and How Deep Is Your Love featuring Barry Gibb. How Deep Is Your Love is one of my favorite Bee Gees songs and when I originally heard the Take That cover I wanted them to collaborate with Barry and I’m not disappointed in it whatsoever. It’s a beautiful song. I would one million percent recommend listening to this album.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you all had a great November :).
