November 2015 Beauty & Lifestyle Favourites

December 3, 2015

We have bid farewell to yet another month, and now the countdown is on! Christmas Eve is in exactly three weeks!!! But before I get to excited and consumed by everything Holly, Jolly and Bright – here are my favourites from the month of November.

Beauty Favourites:

LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in On Point

I’ve used this shadow stick nearly every day since I received it in my November Birchbox. Whether applied all over the lid or just as a pop of highlight in the inner corner, the colour is absolutely stunning and stays put all day long. I love it for busy days when I just need to get out the door and don’t have too much time to focus on my makeup.

Essence Cosmetics Gel Eye Pencil Waterproof in Cocoa Bean

I’m really into brown eyeliner lately! It’s not quite as harsh as black and really compliments any eyeshadow look. This formula itself is really creamy, smudges easily and seems to stay in place on my waterline fairly well. I also really like the twist up packaging. Bonus, it cost me three loonies.

DAVIDsTEA Santa’s Secret Tea-Infused Lip Butter

Who would have thought a tea chain could do lip balm so well?! Infused with tea – of course – and hints of vanilla and peppermint, it smells pretty edible (save it for your beak, not your belly). It’s also extremely smooth and hydrating. Furthermore, I love the shape! It’s oval and for some reason much more enjoyable to apply than typical rounded chopsticks.

Lifestyle Favourites:

Yoga Studio by Modern Lotus App

My Dad recently introduced me to this yoga app (he got it as a free download months ago). It featuresz10, 15, 30 and 60 minute classes at either a beginner, intermediate or advanced level and can be sorted based on target areas (i.e. strength, flexibility, relaxation, etc.). It really makes finding time to workout a breeze. Plus, being surrounded only by living room furniture means I don’t have to worry about the clothing I wear or how much deodorant I put on.  Occasionally an excited pooch confuses yoga for play time, but it’s all fun and games at the end of it.

Adele 25 CD

Adele is definitely my girl crush of the moment! She’s so sophisticated and beautiful…but damn, that voice! Dev bought me her newest CD a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been belting out her lyrics while cruising the streets of my hood ever since. My favourite songs are Send My Love (To Your New Lover), I Miss You and Water Under the Bridge.

Starbucks Gingerbread Tea Latte

I’m obsessed with Starbuck’s newest holiday release!! It’s a black tea with gingerbread aromas, topped with steamed milk a sprinkle of cinnamon for good measure. It’s not too sweet and definitely has a little bit of spice to it – excellent for warming up on a frosty day.

Are you enjoying these monthly favourite posts? I’m definitely having fun writing them! Until next time…
