Ive decided to post November and December together for this favorites post as November is long gone and December is just about over too.

Vitamin E face mist from The Body Shop. Im sure Ive mentioned this pastel pink beauty before, but she needs another mention. Its summer and it’s hot and this is all I want on my face at the moment. Its moisturising, it keeps my skin looking fresh and bright so Im a happy camper.

Cute christmas cards, this one was from a set I got from In Good Company. They come with tiny temporary tattoos as well. So festive.

Pretty jewelry “Catherine” bracelet from Cardies. This is a gift I picked out for my mom on my little brother’s behalf. He’s 3 and only wants to buy diggers and trucks for everyone so I had to intervene here…

Glitter filled baubles from H&M, these seem to be really popular this year, and the more I look, the more I seem to find them. I love glitter and I wish everything was filled with glitter. I’m considering hanging the gold one in my car when I take my tree down this year actually.

The white one has two beautiful feathers inside of it, and makes for a delicate and elegant baubale.

Wrapped gifts, this year I wrapped all my gifts early and I’ve been thanking myself ever since.

Well done Courtney for getting it together this year, you have no need to go to any crowded shopping centres or inflict any form of stress or anxiety upon yourself. You have all this time to yourself now, good on you.”

I chose all kinds of pretty wrapping papers and then finished my gifts off with cute tags and twine bows.

There you have all my favorites for these past two months. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post

Love Courtney xx

November Favorites |2014

Here are my favourites for the month of November. It’s been a very busy month with the end of school approaching fast, thankfully I am no longer a student, but working behind the scenes has been just as stressful this year. I am glad things are winding down now.IMG_6287  The body shop has a glazed apple range out this year. I don’t know if it’s new, I certainly didn’t see it out last year. It’s a sweet, fruity fragrance that Im really loving at the moment. IMG_6288  keeping with the fruit theme…. my handbag has been a mess of paperwork and books this month and this phone case is actually the only way I can find my phone in amongst the mess of it all. IMG_6290  After a visit to the dermatologist, Ive decided that sunshine is officially not for me. Ive been looking into self tanners as a safer option for my skin. The Caribbean tan range has been wonderful to use. I use the A shade all over my body and arms, and I use the B shade for my legs as it is slightly darker. The can gives me about a month and a half worth of tanning. I top my tan up every week or so. IMG_6293  A wallet designed and made by a friend of mine, Norman. The cards go in between the wood and notes go inside the black rubber band. Its compact enough to carry in your hand or pocket. Im enjoying this a great deal. His website is in the photo below if you would like to contact him for one. IMG_6294 IMG_6295

Christmas! I can finally put up my christmas tree and that makes me incredibly happy.

I bought this tree from a department store, It actually was a display piece and wasn’t for sale. After some begging and pleading they sold it to me, fully decorated and all, we drove it to my gran’s house in the back of her Citi Golf as we were staying with her for christmas. I then had to fly home with the tree under my arm as my carry-on luggage. Nobody was impressed with me. Nevertheless its home and I own a beautiful pastel pink tree. 

That’s my list for the month. I do hope you enjoyed reading this

Have a lovely day xx
