November Favourites 2016

I know that each month lately I've been apologizing for my absence, but I'm going to again. I love this blog, I really do, and I wish that I could devote more time and energy to make it the best that I possibly could. I could post more, but I'll always try to make one good quality post instead of 5 low quality ones. Its very important for me to make every post the best that I can, which often means doing things like retaking photos multiple times to get them as good as I can, waiting out a grey week because I know that the lighting is too low to take good photos, and writing posts over the course of weeks because I don't have the time to blog every day. I'm really hoping to breathe some more life into this blog, though, and I'm hoping that I'll get enough free time in December to really make it shine! But enough of my rambles, lets get into the favourites.
Beauty Favourites

Renpure Coconut Cream Shampoo
This shampoo took a little bit of getting used to, but I love it now! When I wash my hair with it, the texture seems different than other shampoos, but it makes my hair feel so soft. It also smells good enough to eat!

The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes in 06
These shades are what dreams are made of! I have a soft spot for gold and bronze eyeshadows, so I just had to grab this mini palette. I ordered it online, and when I got it, I couldn't believe how much of each shade there was! I don't think I'll run out of these any time soon.

Recent Reads #3

It's time for another Recent Reads post! I've been so busy lately that I've fallen a little behind with my reading, but I've still read some quite good books lately, and I thought that I'd share them with you. I'm not going to post about all of the books that I've read lately, just my favourites!
Dracula by Bram Stoker
My rating: 4/5 stars
Average Goodreads Rating: 3.97/5 stars

I just finished this the other day, and it's the one on this list that took me the longest to read. I didn't know what to expect going into this, but I quite enjoyed it. The story is more complex than I expected, and it had more characters than I thought it would. The story ties together many people through the mystery of a strange Transylvania count, and a series of strange events. This strange crew must band together to try to put an end to the terrors that Count Dracula has spread.

October Favourites

I know that this is a little late, but I'm back today with my October favourites! I had an extremely hectic month, which is why I didn't post too much, and it also means that I don't have too many favourites. I did quite like the ones that I have, though, so I thought that I'd share them with you anyways!

Some of my favourite posts from my blog this month were Let's Chat #2The Harry Potter Tag, and On My Bedside Table.
Some of my favourite posts from other blogs were French Onion Gnocchi SoupSalted Caramel Pretzel Crunch BarsWatercress, Leek, Cheddar & Sourdough GratinRhubarb & Gingernut Baked CheesecakeDevils Food Cupcakes With Pomegranate Sugar ShardsGluten-Free Onion RingsApple Cider DoughnutsWhy I Care About Numbers, and Autumn in Italy.

On My Bedside Table

I know, I know, I kind of went missing again. But I'm back with another post, if any of you still remember me! I always love getting a little peek into other people's routines, so I thought that I'd give you a little peek into mine today. So, without further ado, here's what I keep on my bedside table!
I've been reading before I go to bed lately, and though I have about five books on the go, this is the one I've been reaching for lately. It's perfect for this spooky season, and I'm always trying to read more classics.
Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme
I've been using this for quite a few months now, and I think that it's helping my nails to grow faster. It keeps my cuticles moisturized and has an amazing lemon scent. It also lasts for a very long time!
The Body Shop Born Lippy Raspberry Lip Balm
This isn't quite as moisturizing as the other lip balm in the post, but it still works quite well. I generally use this one when I wake up, and the other when I go to bed. This one has a very nice smell, and is quite long lasting.

The Harry Potter Tag

I'm finally back! I know that I said that I'd try to blog more, but my life has been really crazy lately.
I usually don't do tags, but when I was tagged by Salha to do the Harry Potter tag, I just had to! I'm completely obsessed with Harry Potter, especially lately, and I thought that this would be a great way to show my love for it.
1. What is your favorite book? and 2. What is your favourite film?
I'm putting these two together because my answer is the same for both of them: I can't pick just one! But my top three would probably be the Chamber of Secrets, the Prisoner of Azkaban, and the Goblet of Fire.

3. What is your least favourite book? and 4. What is your least favourite film?
I'm squishing these two together again, because my answer is the same for them: The Order of the Phoenix. I haven't read the books or watched the movies in quite a while, but I remember the book to be quite boring in some parts. Though I enjoyed the movie, if I had to choose one it would be my least favourite.

5. Parts of the books/ films that make you cry.

Honestly, I don't cry from books or movies! But one part that really got to me was when Luna painted all of her friends on her walls, I thought it was so sweet.
