November - What I Wore, Ate, Read, Watched and Used

I am SO behind, I should have had this most up days weeks ago but with the lead up to Christmas just makes time fly by! excuses excuses....

October  was all about friends and celebrating and November was the same story - except it was a different story as this time we were celebrating our engagement! I thought we'd be celebrating a lot as it was my 30th but when Sam surprised me with the proposal a few days before it was a double celebration and it's been great! We've been on cloud nine ever since. November was one of the best months this year... maybe ever!

I've spoken all about my birthday and the engagement in my previous post so I'll try and include some other bits from November in this round-up.

What I Wore-
I'm off to a pretty bad start with the whole 'talking about other stuff' thing. But my brother bought me these Paper Doll Court Shoes for my birthday and I absolutely love them. I've been after some nude patent court shoes for a while and I love the little bow detail. They're nice and soft too so they are easy to wear all night. Any excuse for a little shoe selfie!


What I Ate-
Blacks Burgers is our local burger restaurant and we love it there. They're a family run business based in Surrey. We probably eat there more than we should but with it being so close to home and the food being so damn tasty it's too good to resist. On our most recent trip we both tried the Benedict Burger. A Beef Burger with a poached egg, hollandaise sauce and streaky bacon. As a big fan of eggs benedict this called out to me, although I was a little concerned about having an egg in a burger -yes, it was as messy as I expected! It was really really nice, it's always good to try something a little different. They have restaurants in Putney, Epsom and Horley so if you're in the area I'd really check them out as they are seriously good burgers! 


What I Read-
I've had no time to read anything what-so-ever. I planned on reading Gone Girl as I'd heard so many great things but that leads me on to.....

What I Watched-
Sam and I had one of those unexpected early evenings when M went to sleep straight after dinner and there was nothing on TV for a good few hours. So we flicked through Now TV and found Gone Girl. Like I said, I was planning on reading the book but the film was so good I don't think it can live up to it. It's so gripping and I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through. A really really great film that totally lives up to the hype. 

What I Used-
One of my favourite skincare brands is Balance Me. They're so affordable and give great results. I've been using the Balance Me Radiance Face Oil every night after cleansing and it's so relaxing to smooth the oil into my skin and give myself a little face massage when I wind down for the night. I looked up a couple of tutorials on Face massage and I find it really relaxes me before bedtime. The oil really sinks into the skin so it doesn't leave you feeling greasy. It gives my lifeless, dehydrated skin a real boost and I have a fresh glow in the morning too. 


December is all about family time, shopping and eating and I'm looking forward to every minute!
