We’re now in to November! Where on earth has this year gone?! November means it’s nearly my birthday! :O And it means that after 17th (my birthday) I can start thinking about Christmas!
So what have I been enjoying this month?
First up is my Animal Hillside Jacket. I bought this coat back in September as I wanted a waterproof coat that looked a bit nicer than my proper “outdoor” waterproof coat. This coat has been fantastic and actually does a great job of keeping the wind out, as well as being really breathable. So where it hasn’t been so cold but I still need a coat, this coat has been brilliant.
One of the things I really missed about being away at uni was being able to bake. So now I’m back it’s been great to be able to bake and make cakes again, as well as flick through my recipe books deciding what to make next. I’ve really been loving my Hummingbird Bakery books this month too, and while I’ve had the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook for a long time, I’ve really loved my new purchase of “Home Sweet Home” and “Cake Days”.
On the topic of baking, I’ve really enjoyed The Great British Bake Off. I was unsure about how the move to Channel 4 would affect it, but actually it’s still the Bake Off which we all know and love! Everyone is telling me I should apply for the next series XD
I’ve always fancied a reed diffuser but I’ve read a lot of comments about them not actually filling a room. But we bought this Yankee Candle Black Cherry Reed Diffuser for the bathroom and actually I love it! I’m very tempted to get one for my room now! 🙂
The great thing about autumn and October/November is the autumn leaves and the lovely red/orange colours that go with them. I love autumn leaves as to me it shows me that it’s nearly my birthday and they make great photos!
I usually don’t start thinking about Christmas until after my birthday, but during October I’ve read 2 Christmas chick lit books – The Chocolate Lovers’ Christmas and Christmas Cakes and Mistletoe Nights. I love Christmas chick lit books and they really help me get in the mood for Christmas! 😀
S’mores! S’mores aren’t really a thing here in the UK, so I’ve never tried them before. But a couple of weeks ago I decided that I’d give them a go 🙂 So I bought some digestive biscuits, marshmallows and chocolate and zapped it in the microwave to make a really yummy treat! These s’mores were so easy to make and really good!
Cath Kidston x Peter Pan jumper. I absolutely adore my Peter Pan jumper, it is really comfy and lovely to wear! Plus the pattern is pretty cute!
Finally, I love the Cosy Nights that come with winter and the clocks changing. Nothing beats snuggling with a blanket and fairy lights/LED candles while reading a book/watching a film. I know loads of people hate the change to winter but I love it! 🙂
So there’s my favourites for the month! 😀 What have you been enjoying in October? Let me know in the comments 🙂
