It feels like 2 seconds ago I was putting together my October favourites, how quickly did November zoom past?! This time of the year always feels particularly fast for me, perhaps because I enjoy it so much. I had a good month all in all, but December will definitely be much more jam packed with birthdays, festive celebrations and our trip to Edinburgh.
Anyway, enough about December as I’m talking November favourites! I’ve actually tried to cut down my spending recently. I’m trying so hard to save money as apparently that’s what adults do. Pfft. I also need to curb my shopping as I’ll be spending a month in America next year and we have quite a few hotels to book, not to mention spending money whilst we’re out there. That being said I did treat myself to a few new bits and bobs, so let’s take a look…
The perfect mules for the party season! I love this Acne style heel, but with a much friendlier price point. I’m not hugely into high heels, so I find mules a good shout. Plus they’re a complete bargain at £28, and even better? There’s currently 20% off the website!
I love the Cohorted boxes, and I think this month may actually be one of my favourites so far! All brands are cruelty free and I just need to check if Dr Paw Paw contains any non vegan ingredients in the petroleum such as beeswax. I’ve been loving the Evolve skin serum, my skin has been a bit up and down as of late and I’m trying to steer away from harsh chemicals. This serum is great as it’s all organic and 99% natural, so you know you aren’t putting anything nasty on your skin.
I do love a browse in Tiger, you just never know what you’re going to find. I picked up a few new homeware bits (because I really needed more of that) including this throw, jewellery stand and candle holder. I’ve been after a neutral throw like this for ages and at £10 I couldn’t leave it behind. I’m using the marble jewellery stand to hold my watches so I can keep them in one place and not spend half an hour running around the house looking for where I last put one. The candle holder was pretty unnecessary but I felt I needed it. This is why I can’t save.
How beautiful are these pieces from Danish brand DYRBERG/KERN?! Simple yet classic and elegant. I’ll be styling these up in an outfit post soon but I couldn’t wait to share them. They’re from the Orion collection, and I’ve linked above so you can have a little look. With Christmas just around the corner (eek) they’re perfect for your sister, BFF or mum.
L:A Bruket Candle via Rooi
Rooi has fast become one of my favourite lifestyle destinations. Their homeware is seriously swoony, and they stock one of my favourite candle and skincare brands L:A Bruket. Natural and vegan friendly, their scents are divine and I can’t wait to burn this Black Oak candle. The packaging is beautiful too which is obvs a v big deal. They also stock brands such as Kate Spade, Gallery Direct and Vallila so be sure to have a browse.
I didn’t go crazy on Black Friday, I actually avoided most stores and just bought gifts I already had in mind for my family. I did however treat myself to ONE small little thing. And that’s this cute Nica bag. As it was a whopping 50% off site wide I felt I *had* to treat myself to something. All of their bags are non leather and therefore vegan friendly – woop! I’ve been after a new cross body and whilst I’m not usually a fan of polka dots, I quite liked the splattered/uneven design of them on this.
And last but not least, this little guy which I picked up in no other than Tesco for a measly £4. I’m a big fan of succulents, but festive succulents? YES PLEASE. This will look cute on my coffee table so a successful trip to Tesco indeed.
