November Favorites

November Favorites

November has come to an end, which means one thing – another favorites post! I found a few more things that I love this month and I want to share them with y’all. I’ll keep the intro short, so let’s get into it!

Skin Care

To start with the bigger skin care item, I was given this sonic face cleanser by my sister who wasn’t using it much anymore. Let me just say that I absolutely love this lil’ thing! It leaves my face feeling so much cleaner and really has the ability to get down deeper into my pores more so than my hands could. You can find this product here!Processed with VSCO with a6 presetProcessed with VSCO with a6 preset

I also love that this product is made out of silicone because it doesn’t carry the threat of hosting bacteria that can get spread onto your face. It also comes with a charging cord so you don’t have to worry about dealing with changing out batteries!

After cleaning out some products in my bathroom cabinet, I found this face mask that I’ve had around for a while but I’d sort of forgotten about. This is the Origins ‘Clear Improvement’ charcoal mask.

On the back of the bottle, it says that “Active Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers” and goes on to talk about some of the other ingredients in the face mask. If you haven’t used a charcoal mask before, you really should, as it leaves your skin feeling so fresh and renewed after using it. There’s not much else I can really say about this product, so we’ll move on!

Home

I’m not sure if I should place these under a “home” or “health” category, but here we are. I started using my essential oil diffuser again this month and I’ve noticed a difference in both how I sleep and how I feel whenever I’m in my room. I’ve mostly been using the same 3 oils this month, two of them being by the brand “Nature Love” and the other being from the brand ECO. Aroma.

I know these oils aren’t the best brands out there, but they’re cheap and they get the job done, especially the ‘Sinus Clear’ one. I put this in my diffuser whenever I feel like I have a cold coming on and let it run while I’m sleeping at night. This helps me wake up feeling better than I did the night before and helps with the relief of some of the cold symptoms that I might have been feeling.

Clothes

Once again, I’m not sure which category to put these next things under, whether it’s clothing or accessories, but I’m just going to put them under the clothing category. I picked up these silk scarves and a bandana scarf (?) at a local thrift store back home and I absolutely love them!

I know I might be a little behind on the trend of wearing a bandana scarf around the neck, but I thought I’d give the trend a try and I’m so glad I did! The awesome thing about this scarf is that you can wear it in different ways, whether it’s used as a simple headband, tied around the neck, or tied in a top-knot with an up-do hairstyle. This is definitely something that I’ll be incorporating into my wardrobe more frequently now.

Beauty

Last but not least, I have a beauty favorite for this month! Like last month, I found another lipstick that I like. I picked this lipstick up in Target during the first week of November and I really loved how it looked when I swatched it on my arm.

The color can be a little strong on your lips at first, but once you’ve been wearing it for a a little bit, the color starts to look so natural and flattering with your makeup. This is the Milani lipstick in the color ‘Pretty Natural,’ and the name totally makes sense.

Although my list was not long for this month, I still managed to find (and rediscover) some new products that I really enjoy using, as well as new trends that I hopped on. I’m super eager to find some new things to try out for the month of December, but until then, I hope everyone has a great start to the new month!

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” – Isaiah 43:2

Autumnal Touches

Autumnal Touches

Hey, y’all! I thought I’d share with you a few autumnal touches I have around my room at the moment. I’m not going to lie, I’m already preparing for Christmas since I’m one of those people who gets just too dang excited for the month of December! So, before I completely immerse my room in festive decor, here are some of my favorite autumnal spaces and things in my room!

I’m totally itching to change my throw pillows right now because I have my Christmas ones all ready to go, but I feel like I would be socially exiled if I put them up before Thanksgiving, so these will have to do for now!

For some reason, I think candle sticks seem very appropriate for this time of the year. I love how they look with the other decor I have in my room, especially when I have one sitting next to a stack of my antique books.

Dried flowers are some of the easiest decor you can have in your home. Though it might take a few days for the flowers to be fully ready, they make for a beautiful touch in a home, especially when they are placed in a brown glass bottle. I also threw this feather I found while in North Carolina and I think it adds a different texture to the mix.

The last little thing I want to put in here is this hook that I place my keys on. Another thing that always reminds me of autumn and this time of year are deers, although I’m not sure why. This hook is made of distressed gold-colored metal and adds a fun element to my room.

Even though I’m eagerly awaiting for Christmas to finally be here, I still love my fall-centered decor I have in my room. I’m sure you’ll see another post after Thanksgiving showing you what Christmas decor I have in my room, but until then, enjoy your Monday and prepare your bellies for the massive feast called Thanksgiving next week!
