Ahhh November, my favourite month of the year. The evenings are cosy, there's a glow around the hint of Christmas is in the background. 11 months is a long time to wait for your favourite month but it never lets me down.
:: ICELAND ::
What a babe of a country. I'll have some posts coming in the next few weeks where I basically confess my undying love to this country! The trip was a blast; our first proper holiday since being together. It may have taken a while but it was so worth the wait. If only it didn't go by so fast.
:: NEW SOCKS ::
Simple pleasures. Alex bought me some new socks and I love them. New Look never fails to make good socks.
:: PUPPY PREP ::
We've spent November prepping for our new arrival. Yes, OMG, we have entered Grown Up Ville. We are finally getting a puppy. I am so excited; she's so unbelievable cute- I'm in love already. We've been getting her food ready, buying blankets, bedding and toys. All of which she'll probably chew to pieces. I think we're ready as we'll ever be for this pup.
:: SUNDAY 13TH NOVEMBER ::
I had an evening in with Alex. It's nothing to write home about to outsiders but to me it was. He still had to work in the day but he was home by 6pm on a Sunday which means we got to do Sunday things. I cooked a roast, we had a couple glasses on wine, we chilled out on the sofa watching Planet Earth II. Everything a Sunday should be, I can't wait until this becomes the regular for us.
:: FACE MASKS ::
I've always been partial to a pamper night; glass of wine, pjs and a face mask but these are once in a blue moon. I'm now attempting weekly face masks to give this winter skin some life! I've gone for the sheet masks, you know, the ones that make you look like you're in a budget scary movie?! I love them. I've been keeping up with the routine for about 3 weeks and whether it's placebo effect or not I really like them and I've noticed a huge difference with my skin.
