November Favourites

This month's favourites are all a bit random but hey, who doesn't love a tip off on a great purchase?

Now this has to be one of my favourite things not only this month, but of all time. I couldn't resist the miniature cuteness when I came across this pretty little espresso cup. I mean come on, it's the same length as my little finger! Since I don't like espresso, I had the idea of using it as a candle holder. The tester size Yankee Candle fits perfectly and I think it looks fabulously quirky. I'm using the Strawberry one here - delicious!

Aside from Grimmy, The Live Lounge is the main reason I listen to Radio 1. After falling in love with Arctic Monkeys' cover of Drake's Hold On, this album was top of my list on pay day. For someone who's not really into chart music, I'm surprised how much I've enjoyed listening to the covers. One of my favourites is Daughter's stunning cover of Get Lucky, originally by Daft Punk.

I've been longing for a pair of Timberlands for so long but I've always been put off by the price tag, usually around £150-£200 brand new. So I turned to ebay and found a used pair, still in excellent condition, for £70. Still pricey I know but they're so hard wearing they'll last me forever. Warning: be sure to wear them in properly before attempting walking too far from home, I made this mistake and they shredded my heels to pieces! Happily, they're now the comfiest shoes I own, I love them!

That's it for this month, prepare for an overload of Christmas goodies next time.

Love, Anna x

Song of The Month | November

This month I've been enjoying Ellie Goulding's track Explosions, from her late 2012 album Halcyon. Most of you are probably over this hype by now but I'm still not over what a beautiful song it is. Her voice is so pure and sweet that the lyrics make me feel anger towards whoever inspired the song by hurting her. If you need a good cry, this song will make you feel less alone. If someone as gorgeous as Ellie feels down sometimes then the rest of us stand no chance! It honestly gives me shivers.

Love, Anna x

Review: Fudge Urban Texture Blaster

As usual, I popped to Superdrug with the intention of purchasing just a can of deodorant. Of course I ended up spending over £15. 

As you may have noticed, I have super flat, flyaway hair. Sigh. I had a little (okay I was was there for ages) browse through the hair product section in search of a product to liven up my hair a bit. Having never tried out the brand Fudge Urban before, I took a chance and picked up a can of their promising looking Urban Texture Blaster (£6.99).
