It doesn’t seem like two minutes ago since I was writing my October lookback, and yet here we are – kissing goodbye to November… I can’t say I’m sad to see it go either!
Yep, this month has been kind of..sucky. I say that without an inch of self-pity, just pure fact. (Okay, maybe a tiny bit of self pity.) The worst part has been this last week – having been stuck in bed with the worst bug known to man…the only plus point is that thanks to said bug, I’ve lost so much weight that I don’t need to worry about the pre-Christmas diet. #winner
Okay, so November wise – lets be recapping’ ya..
Firstly, I broke up with my boyfriend. That truly sucked, especially because I would have loved to go through the long haul with him. Watching the fireworks on Bonfire Night with tears falling down my cheeks was not one of the best memories, but hey ho. We *almost* sorted things out…I say almost but lets say, honesty and loyalty is needed for a relationship and there was a night where that clearly wasn’t a priority for my ex. So alas, there was to be no more trying again and I’m back to being single – which is fine, because quite frankly, I’ll never understand men anyway!
It’s looking like November was a month for ‘B’s! Yep, twas my birthday and I turned the ripe old age of 28. I have no idea how this has happened because I still don’t quite class myself as ‘adulty’ enough to actually qualify as one…apparently being an adult is just googling how to do stuff anyway – who knew? Mumma and Dad Writes treated me to some new perfume and two new Pandora stacking rings for the celebration, which cheered me up no end…(being newly single makes your birthday suck)
Oh there’s nothing in life that can’t be solved by my two favourite men – Ben & Jerry. And when I finally managed to get my hands on their brand new Cinnamon Buns (oo-er) I couldn’t have been happier…boyfriend who? I’ve been looking for this ice-cream for weeks and finally tracked it down and indulged myself. Also these amazing new Cadbury’s brownie bites were discovered at the same time, and good Lord, they are better than…most things. Probably my all time favourite Cadbury product now – and that’s saying something!
As you all know, I’m a full on stationery addict, and this month has been all about the planners for me. I’ve been getting organised and have been sent some amazing planners from amazing brands and I’m going to use them all slightly differently next year – can never be too organised right? I had a particularly lovely Friday evening spent watching Once Upon A Time while decorating my MAMBI Happy Planner with all of the bits and pieces in my latest planning haul. Glass of wine, good TV and a bit of crafty time and I’m a very happy lady.
I have been loving making and uploading YouTube videos, I’ve done six this month and I’m pretty chuffed with that. I still feel so new to vlogging but I’m loving every minute. I think my favourite video this month had to be my Sephora ‘Kissing Stories’ review which was for an amazing set of glossy lip crayons from Sephora. It was really fun to film and you can check it out here if you haven’t already…
And lastly, here’s my Instagram overview for November..
Hope you’ve had a great November, leave me links to your monthly lookback for November below!
