What I Got For Christmas 2013

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! I had such a lovely time just spending time with my family, opening presents and eating lots of yummy food! Christmas is my favourite time of the year and I cannot believe its all over already. Just think, tomorrow it will be 2014. Sorry I haven't blogged much recently, I have been so busy having a good time with my family and then going back to work in time for the sales that I haven't had much of a chance to sit down and really get into it. Its all died down a little now so I am back to business. :) 

I was really spoilt this year and feel really lucky to have actually received what I did. I just want to point out now that I am not bragging about what I got at all, I just really enjoy reading these sort of posts on other blogs and thought it would be nice to write my own. :) Anyway thats enough of a introduction, moving onto what I got for Christmas this year...

So first up is this gorgeous Kate Spade purse that I have been lusting over for so so long. My sister bought me this and I almost cried when I opened it, I was that surprised! Its just a stunning leather wallet style purse with lots of room for cards and whatnot. I just adore Kate Spade as a designer and feel so lucky to actually own one of their purses. Eeek! 

I was also lucky enough to get some stunning pieces of jewellery. I am a huge lover of jewellery, especially expensive pieces that I would never ever buy myself. My main present from my parents was this beautiful Tiffany bracelet. Its just so simple and elegant and looks stunning on. Its got the classic Tiffany circle with the little engravings on a delicate chain and I just adore it! As well as my Kate Spade purse, my sister also got me my birthstone Pandora ring. I have wanted this for ages and its weird because I bought her the exact same thing for her birth month! Kinda spooky. It looks great stacked with my other rings and I love it.

Moving onto some beauty related gifts now. My sister (she has really spoilt me this year) got me this MAC gift set that I loved as soon as it was released. MAC lip glosses are my favourites and I really liked the shades in this particular set. I'll probably do a review on this soon so I won't go into too much detail but I have been wearing these non stop since Christmas day. I have loved the Ted Baker make up and wash bags for a while now so when my auntie bought me one for Christmas I was over the moon. I love the cute little bow and the fact its wipe clean means its super practical and ideal for travelling. This is currently in my handbag filled with all my essential bits of make up. 

I always ask for a perfume ever single year as its something I very rarely buy myself and this year I asked my parents for Opium. Its a very strong but not over powering and is the sort of scent I always go for. I like scents that linger and last for a long time. I also like scents that never date and thats exactly what Opium is. Love it.

My Nana bought me this super cute, super warm onesie this year and I have been living in it like you wouldn't believe! It is just so so cute and I love the fact that the hood as this adorable reindeer face on it complete with ears and antlers. I will be wearing this all through Winter, whether its Christmas or not!

Next up is gifts that don't really fit into a category but are still really thoughtful, lovely gifts. All of these are from my parents apart from the cute plush brussel sprout which my sister got me as a joke. I hate sprouts so she thought I might like them more if they were cute. It really is adorable.. if they looked like that though I still wouldn't be able to eat them! 

I also got the Made In Chelsea book as I am such a huge fan of that show, a cute Christmas kit thats full of little charms for the perfect Christmas, a gorgeous glass ornament thing that will look great on my shelf and a map of New York that is brilliant! Its basically a map thats made of some sort of material which means you can just screw it up in any old way and it will never tear or break or become unreadable. I am going to New York next year so I can't wait to test it out! I also got The Lego Avengers Xbox game to share with my sister as we love to sit down and bash up a few things and collect some studs but I forgot to take a photo of it. :) 

Bath bits now and they are all from Lush. I love Lush so much and I can never ever have enough. So my Nana got me the cute Christmas pudding bath ballistic thats smells amazing and my auntie got me the Santa's Grotto gift set thats full of Christmas Lush goodies. I can't wait to use them but I also don't want them to run out too quickly!

Lastly is a few bits from my stocking this year. My sister and I are really lucky that we still get stockings on Christmas morning but they do tend to be filled up with lots of useful things instead of toys like we had when we were younger. This year I got make up wipes, cotton wool (which I have already started using - told you its useful stuff), baby shampoo for cleaning make up brushes, shower foam, a face mask, a cuddly starfish, a chocolate reindeer (as everyone needs chocolate at Christmas) and a troll. I used to love trolls when I was younger so this was really funny! I also got a couple of Sanctuary products. I have wanted to try Sanctuary products for a little while now so I was really excited to find them in my stocking. I got a foaming bath soak and a body soufflé. They both smell amazing and I can't wait to give them a whirl.

So thats what I got for Christmas this year. I can't believe how spoilt I have been and I feel incredibly lucky that my family bought me such gorgeous gifts and put so much thought into everything. Thank you so much! 

What did you get for Christmas this year? I would love to hear about it. :)

December Glossybox

Hey ladies! I can't believe its really nearly Christmas! This year has totally flown by its unreal. I now have four whole days off work for Christmas which is the longest I have had in the last five years or so... so I'm super excited and intend to make the most of it. I imagine I will probably spend most of today wrapping presents so its all done before tomorrow and then I can just enjoy the festivities. Anyway, todays post is on this months Glossybox and the last of 2013. Before I go into what was inside, I just wanted to say how cute the packaging is. Its very christmassy and something a little different with the cute candy cane tissue paper and I like the theme 'Festive Treasures' too! Now onto what I received in my box this month...

Wilkinson Sword Intuition Naturals Razor. Well when I saw this in my box I couldn't believe it. A full size razor that normally retails for about £7 was in my Glossybox. I have actually used one of these Intuition razors before and loved it but I just couldn't justify the price. It was just too much for something that wasn't that essential. I am very excited to use this now though as I find it leaves my skin really smooth and moisturised, perfect for the cold weather at this time of year when your skin just needs a bit extra.

Maybelline New York Color Tattoo 24hr Eye Shadow. I have always wanted to give these a go as I have heard so many great thing about them but unfortunately I am not entirely sure how much use I will be getting out of this particular shade. Its a gorgeous bright blue but its not very practical for me. I am much more a neutrals kind of girl but I will try and find a way to make this work as it is so pretty.

Seche Nail Lacquer in 'Coral'. I have always wanted to try the Seche top coat that everyone raves about but have never got round to it, so I was really excited to see one of their nail lacquers in my box. I received this stunning coral shade which is ideal for when we start getting into Spring. I am always a bit of a sucker for coral nail polishes anyway and it will be interesting to see how great these polishes really are. You are meant to be able to apply just one coat for full coverage and it dries really quickly. I can't wait to test it! I'll keep you guys posted. :)

Beautiful Movements Cosmetics Nude Lip Gloss. I have never really tried any make up from this brand before but this lipgloss is a gorgeous shade and is the perfect handbag size. I think its something I will carry around with me just incase I need a little sweep of colour and shine. 

Sanctuary Spa Active Reverse Resurface & Refine Ultra Polish. I wasn't sure what to make of this when I first saw this in my box but when I read about it I couldn't wait to give it a try! Its meant to smooth out your skin and help boost circulation. You basically just scrub it into your skin then rinse away to leave smooth, polished skin. I'll let you guys know what I think of this product once I have tried it out. :)

So thats everything I received in this months box. Overall I was really impressed with what I received and there wasn't one thing I disliked. I want to try every single product out so well done Glossybox! What did you think of this months box?

The Christmas Tag

Photo from WeHeartIt
Hey everyone! Today I am going to be doing The Christmas Tag which I have been really exciting about. They only thing is, there seem to be so many different tag questions around and I have no idea which ones are the correct ones, so I have decided to do a total mixture! So this is probably a combination of several different Christmas Tags combined.. so yeah, lets get started!

1. Whats your favourite holiday movie?

Okay so I do have a few that I love so much and try to watch every single year and they are Elf, White Christmas, A Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street. I just love the classic Christmas movies and for me, nothing ever quite beats them and as for Elf, who doesn't love that movie?! 'Its SANTA!'.

2. Whats your favourite Christmas colour?

I know it sounds pretty boing but I have to go with red. I am always drawn to red when it comes to decorating the tree and as a table setting for Christmas day. It just looks really festive and looks great with a bit of red sparkle too.

3. Do you like to stay in your PJs or dress up for Christmas?

I stay in my PJs whilst opening presents and getting breakfast but then I love dressing up for when we go to my aunties for Christmas dinner and the rest of the day. I like to have a happy medium and have the best of both worlds. :)

4. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

Christmas Day. I have done that every since I can remember and I love it. To me, its half the fun cramming so much into one single day. Our Christmas Day is totally jam packed and I am normally exhausted by the end but thats what makes my Christmas. :)

5. Favourite Christmas smell?

Scent wise I just love Yankee Candle "Snow In Love'. Its just the perfect scent and really reminds me of Christmas but when it comes to the actual day then its all about the smell of Christmas dinner! Its just a lovely comforting smell and I love it.

6. Whats your favourite holiday drink?

Hot Chocolate hands down! Its easily my favourite and something that makes me feel all warm and cosy inside. I drink it all year round but come Christmas, its all about hot chocolate in one of my many Christmas mugs. :)

7. What are you doing for Christmas this year?

As a family we pretty much do the same every year and I really wouldn't want it any other way. Christmas morning me and my family open our stockings and presents before then getting dressed up and going over to my Aunties of a delicious Christmas dinner and more present opening with the rest of my family. We then spend some quality family time together doing quizzes my nan makes up and watching some Christmas telly. To me, its the perfect day.

8. Real or fake tree?

As lovely as a real Christmas tree would be, we can't have one because of Skye, my dog. It wouldn't be practical and she would hurt her little paws so its fake tree all the way. I also like the idea of them always looking perfect and are nice and easy to look after. Theres no nursing to be done and you can reuse it year after year which I also like the idea of. Some people have their trees for years and years which can become a little tradition.

9. Handmade or bought cards?

It would have to be bought cards, I just never have the time to sit down and create lots if pretty cards which is shame really. I also spend some time picking out some really nice Christmas cards, especially for my family. Its nice to spend a few extra minutes finding the perfect card for someone, even if they throw them away afterwards.

10. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?

Can I say everything? I love the entire lead up to Christmas, with the beautiful shop windows and the Christmas spirit around the stores. I also love opening my chocolate advent calendar every morning and shopping for peoples Christmas presents. I get super carried away and I love the idea of sitting down and wrapping them all up a few days before Christmas. I love it when the Christmas songs are playing on repeat in the stores and the trailers for Christmas TV come on. Of course I also love Christmas Day itself when I get to spend quality time with my family, opening presents, eating great food and just having a fantastic time. 

So thats my Christmas Tag create with a mixture of questions I found. I hope you enjoyed it and i would love for you guys to give it a go too. :)

Christmas Nails

Hey everyone! Today I just wanted to share some of my favourite nail polishes for Christmas. For me its all about reds and sparkle! The sparkly the better and there are some great glitter polishes out there at the moment so its worth having a look. I want to apologise for the photo of the bottles though as I just couldn't get the light right or anything so they do look a little too red. However the swatches are pretty much true to colour which is the main thing. :) So here we go..

1. OPI 'Skyfall'. This was from the James Bond collection that was released for Christmas last year and there were so many shades I ended up purchasing because they were all stunning! This has to be my favourite from the whole collection and is perfect for Christmas and winter. Its a gorgeous deep red with a slight burgundy tone to it. I love it and it looks fantastic once on your nails too.

2. OPI 'Golden Eye'. This was also from the James Bond collection and is a perfect gold glitter nail polish. It looks great either alone or applied over another colour to give it extra sparkle. I sometimes find gold glitter polishes don't have enough glitter to them once applied and you end up with like five coats. This isn't like that at all, after two coats you have total coverage.

3. China Glaze 'Pure Joy'. Not many people I speak to actually know about this brand of nail polish. I don't know whether its just not as common here in the UK but its worth knowing about! They do fantastic shades all year round and I am crazy about their summer neons, they are beyond bright! However this is one of their Christmas ones and its beautiful. Its a gorgeous red/gold glitter and applies like a dream. Well worth trying out!

4. Essie 'Thigh High'. I did a nail of the day post on this polish here because I have been living in it like you wouldn't believe. Its just the perfect deep red and it looks great with everything. Its a colour I have been reaching for a lot and if I can't decided what colour to paint my nails, then I'll choose this. Its gorgeous.

5. Essie ' Twin Sweater Set'. This is a great christmassy red and is a nice classic shade. Its from Essie's fall collection and is still available if you want to get your hands on it. Its the kind of red that will suit any skin tone and like I said, screams Christmas. :)

So thats my top picks for Christmas. What are your favourite Christmas polishes?

Getting Ready For Christmas

Hey everyone! How are you all? For the last few days I have felt absolutely awful! I think I had some sort of flu virus and it wasn't pleasant at all, I could barely talk, it hurt to breathe and literally all I wanted to do was sleep. I'm just so glad I wrote all my blog posts for last week in advance so I didn't have to worry about any of that and at least it should all be out of my system by Christmas.. silver linings and all that.

Anyway today is a little post on what my house looks like during Christmas time. I actually really struggled to take photos of everything as the lights came out a little weird on some of them and on others I just couldn't get them to look as great as they do in real life. You can tell photography isn't my strongest point.. but I tried which is the main thing! I just love getting the house ready for Christmas, its so exciting and really gets me into the festive mood. There is nothing I love more then being all snuggled up by the Christmas tree covered in twinkling lights with a hot chocolate. Its such a lovely feeling and just makes me even more excited for Christmas! Once today is over there is only 10 sleeps left! Eek! Its flying past! :)

Lots of love

Christmas Jumpers

Hey everyone! Its nearly that time of year where its totally acceptable to wear your favourite Christmas jumpers as much as you like and today is officially Christmas Jumper Day! I am a huge fan of jumpers anyway but there is something about Christmas jumpers that makes me all happy inside, I just love them. I can't wait to wear my candy cane one I bought last year, its so slouchy and comfortable and so easy to wear. If anything, its a shame I have to wait an entire year to wear it again! If you don't already have your favourite Christmas jumper yet then here are a few ideas, you don't even have to spend a lot if you don't want too, most places like Amazon and Ebay have so many to choose from, you'll be spoilt for choice. :)

1. This jumper is just lovely! Its pretty expensive at £79 but it is Ted Baker so its to be expected. This is ideal if you want to steer clear of all the christmassy colours and have something that can be worn the rest of the season. Despite it being pink and cream, it still has a super cute design to it with the reindeer and snowflakes. 

2. Good ol' Topshop, always there for your every fashion need. Including Christmas jumpers! I think this one is super cute with the little gingerbread pattern. Its also a gorgeous red which is the perfect Christmas colour and looks great paired with jeans or a nice cosy pair of leggings. I also like the sweatshirt style to it which makes it casual as well as dressy.

3. I'm not sure if this is actually available to buy anywhere, I just included this as its just like those homemade style jumpers that grannies make. This is the perfect classic style and ideal come Christmas Eve. I have never had anyone make me a jumper before but I can imagine it being really sweet and something you can keep for years to come. :)

4. Now something for the classic and simple jumper wearers. This is from Miss Selfridge and is a lovely, cotton jumper thats fitted so if you don't want a big slouchy jumper this could be for you. Again, this would look fantastic paired with some skinny jeans and knee high boots. its also not too christmassy so you could wear this throughout the winter season.

5. I love this jumper so much! It screams Christmas (literally) and is full of all the colours you could expect from a Christmas jumper. I adore the fair isle pattern and the snowflake designs. This snugly jumper is from River Island and only costs £35 which I think is pretty good going for such a slouchy, chunky jumper.

6. Lastly is another Topshop number and its gorgeous! Its a lovely subtle grey but that huge holly across the shoulder and front makes it really christmassy without being too in your face. It does cost £61 so its a little more pricey then your standard jumper but it really is lovely. :)

So thats it, a few ideas for a Christmas jumper if you don't have one just yet. Lets be honest, everyone should have that crazy Christmas jumper that they only dig up once or twice a year...

My Top 5 Red Lipsticks

Hey ladies! Today's post is on my current favourite red lipsticks. Its nearly Christmas and that means red lipstick is my go to make up product. I do have a ridiculous amount of red lipsticks so I decided to narrow it down to the top five to give you some sort of idea. They aren't in any particular order as I love them all roughly the same. Anyway, lets get started...

Revlon Lip Butter in 'Raspberry Pie'. Okay so this isn't exactly a red but it is a shade I reach for a lot. Its a slightly plummy red and looks great on the lips as its so hydrating and glossy. This is perfect if you have quite dry lips as it doesn't cling to any imperfections and hydrates your lips at the same time.

MAC Lipstick in 'RiRi Woo'. This is the limited edition Rhianna lipstick and it really is a stunning shade. Its a gorgeous deep red and if you have Ruby Woo then this is pretty similar. It is a matte lipstick so its not great for dry lips but looks amazing once applied. The engraving on the lipstick is pretty cute too.

Urban Decay Super Saturated Lip Colour in 'Theodora'. I actually got this with the Theodora palette and it was a nice little surprise as the product is gorgeous! Its a lovely glossy red and applied like a dream. The other thing I really like about this product is the fact its in crayon form. Red lipstick isn't always the easiest thing to apply so the crayon makes it so much easier. You can be really precise, accurate and create a lovely line in half the time.

MAC Lipstick in 'Lady Danger'. This has to be one of my favourite MAC lipsticks of all time. This is the sort of red that is really flattering and I think its the perfect red for me as its got a slight coral hint to it and is very vivid. I just love wearing this shade and for me its the perfect Christmassy red. I will be wearing this more and more come Christmas time and I can't wait!

Topshop Lipstick in 'Rio Rio'. Lastly is this little Topshop number. This is one of the first Topshop lipsticks I ever bought and I love it. Its quite a coral kind of red which I think suits me a little more and its fairly similar to Lady Danger but maybe a little more red. The one thing I would say about this lipstick is the lasting power isn't as great as the MAC ones. It fades a little quicker which means more applications. However it is a stunning shade and one I recommend if you don't want to spend a fortune.

So there you have it, my current favourite red lipsticks. What are your favourite red lipsticks? What shades do you reach for at Christmas time?

Lots of love

Winter Clothing Haul

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't posted that much the past week, I have just been so busy and haven't had a chance to actually take some nice photos. I normally take them in bulk but I didn't realise I wouldn't have the time. So yeah, really sorry about that but I am now back :). So I wanted to show you a few things I have purchased in the last few weeks before all my money went on Christmas presents. I love reading people's haul posts and seeing what they managed to pick up so therefore I love writing my own too. 

So first up are a few accessories. Its all about the cosy hats and scarves at the moment and I am always on the look out for something really warm but also looks really cool too. I picked up this gorgeous snood and fingerless gloves from Gap which I fell in love with straight away, they are super cosy and will look fantastic with my black teddybear coat. Onto headwear I managed to find the perfect bobble hat for me. I don't think I am a hat person at all so finding a hat that suits me can be quite tricky, this one was ideal! It doesn't flatten my hair or make me look like a pea head which is always a good thing! I also picked up these super cute ear muffs too, perfect for when you have a hair style you don't want to mess up. 

Moving into clothing. I am now totally stocked up on jumpers for the rest of the season, (not saying I won't keeping looking for more though..) and I think I have everything covered. I saw this lovely knitted jumper in Fat Face a few weeks ago and loved it. Its not a shop I normally ever shop in but they had the most gorgeous jumpers in their window and I had to have a look. They are all really warm and chunky and are a little pricey but I think they are seriously worth it. I picked up just the one and I can't wait to wear it when the temperature really drops. I also popped into Gilly Hicks in Westfield on the off chance they might have something worth looking at and found this lovely striped jumper. Its quite thin but surprisingly warm and the colours are very subtle so look great paired with everything. Lastly on the jumper front is this New York sweatshirt. I found this on Asos randomly and just knew I had to have it. Firstly the price was amazing, you can pick up sweatshirts in places like Topshop for double the price so I was very impressed. Its also one of my favourite winter colours, I just love those deep, burgundy shades when the weather gets cooler. 

Next up was this oversized check shirt from Topshop. I have been looking for one of these for a while to either wear alone or layered over a t-shirt and I finally found one I really liked. The colours are a little different and its something I can wear now and when Spring hits. Last of all is my favourite purchase of the bunch and its the fur gilet. Just wow. I have been living in this for the last couple of weeks and I just love it so much. Its really warm and the fur is so soft and cosy and it looks great with so many things. I can wear it casually or a little more dressed up and it looks really stylish. I have wanted one of these for so long so when I saw it, I didn't even have to think twice about it. 

So thats what I have picked up recently. Have you managed to get yourself anything before Christmas?

Lets Stay Toasty

Hey everyone! Now for someone like me who suffers terribly with freezing cold hands most of the year, I am always on the hunt for a nice warm pair of gloves come autumn/winter. When it gets really cold, I am literally in so much pain I could cry sometimes so for me, its so important to find the warmest pair of gloves I can find and I am quite happy to spend a fair bit if they work. Here I have pieced together some really cute styles that will keep your hands super cosy and toasty.

I am all for the furry styles as I find they are the warmest along with sheepskin. They are what I look for first and not only do they keep me super warm they also look really stylish. For those of you that just want a little extra warmth but nothing too heavy then there are so many cute knitted styles out thee in so many different colours. I love the mitten style but for something more practical then the fingerless ones are brilliant. You can still text and do everything else whilst still keeping warm. :) The only problem I have is when I'm driving, I have yet to find a nice pair of leather gloves that actually fit me! I find they are always too big which is really annoying.. leather gloves do look fantastic though and are well worth the money.

So thats my quick little 'lets stay toasty' post, I hope it gave you a few ideas for your next gloves purchase. :)

NOTD | Essie - Thigh High

Hey everyone. Today is another nail of the post and once again my current shade is an Essie polish. I don't know what it is, but I have a total obsession with Essie at the moment. I can't get enough of their dark shades and I find myself drawn to them time and time again. I can't wait to get my hands on some of their new shades for Winter 2013, they look gorgeous!

So anyway, the shade I am currently wearing is Essies's 'Thigh High' and its amazing! Its describes as a deep and frosty ruby red and to me, its my favourite nail polish right now. I love any sort of red polish anyway but these deep shades have to be my favourites. It looks fantastic on and I can imagine it would look great with any skin tone. I know lots of people don't like red polish but if you wanted to test one out then I recommend this one for sure. :) Its the perfect winter red and I love it.

Whats your favourite shade at the moment? 

Lots of love

Monthly Favourites | November

Hey everyone! I can't actually believe its December! December is easily one of my favourite times of year, I just love the lead up to Christmas, the shopping and I even like the weather a little bit too. For some reason I can almost accept the rain and the cold weather because its Christmas.. its wouldn't be Christmas for me if it was boiling hot outside after all. So its time for my monthly favourites and this is the last one of 2013, I can't believe how fast this year is going.. anyway onto the favourites.

Eau Thermale Avene Light Hydrating Cream. So I did a blog post on this here and I just love this product! Its something I have strolled on past numerous times in Boots and now I can't believe I did. Its such a hydrating moisturiser that keeps my skin feeling smooth and non greasy all day long. I also love how light it is when I apply it to my skin, it sinks in almost straight away. Love it.

Lanolips 101 Ointment Balm. This is another product that I did a blog post on this month here and its something that I think will be a firm favourite of mine for a long time. Its just the perfect lip balm if you suffer with dry, chapped lips and has really transformed mine within a few days. It also lasts for hours on end so you don't feel the need to keep reapplying throughout the day. Well worth a try.

Mark Hill 'Turn Up The Heat' Heat Protection Spray. I have been styling my hair a lot this month whether it be curling it or straightening it and I find this spray has been brilliant. I only purchased the travel size as I wasn't entirely sure how much I'd like it but I kinda wish I bought the full size now. Its a nice even spray and doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy or greasy. Because my hair is thin, too much spray can make it flat but this doesn't do that at all!

MAC Lipstick in 'Flair For Finery'. I just adore this lipstick shade! Its the perfect pinkish nude and a great everyday lippy. I have been wearing this to work mainly as its not the sort of colour you need to constantly reapply. However this was a limited addition shade and I am not sure if its still available, but its still worth a look if you're interested. :)

Essie Nail Polish in 'Chinchilly'. Another Essie polish that has made it onto my favourites. I am just loving this brand of nail polish at the moment and their autumn/winter shades are to die for! This is one I have been reaching for time and time again as it looks perfect with everything and the formula is fantastic, making it really easy to use.

Marc Jacobs Dot Perfume. I bought this last year and stopped using it come Spring/Summer. I have rediscovered it all over again and for me, its the perfect Autumn scent. I love it so much and it always reminds me of New York city and crisp autumn air. :)

True Blood Season 1 DVD. Lastly is my non beauty favourite and this is a series I am totally hooked on. I can't believe I have never watched this before but now I have already ordered season 2, ready for when I finish this one. Its really addictive and the story line is brilliant. They leave every episode on a cliff hanger so I always need to watch the next one to find out what happens. Well and truly stuck on True Blood. 

So thats it for my monthly favourites. What have you been loving this November?
