November 2013 Non Beauty Favourites.

Much like October, November was a bit of a funny old month for me. I had an assignment to write that I didn't really fully understand (I'm hoping for an okay mark though, fingers crossed!) and there were a couple of weeks I felt a little under the weather, but the promise of Christmas just around the corner is always exciting so I'm quite glad November is over. That being said, I had a few non beauty favourites that I wanted to note down.

To go with the larger bunny light I've had for a little while, I just had to get the baby bunny version too because it's so cute! I'm sure these are for children but, why should they get the cutest things all the time, right?! These lights have been super helpful when it comes to taking photographs for the blog over the last few months. There's about a 5 minute window (slight exaggeration) of good light in my little cottage during the Winter months but I'm trying so hard not to invest in studio lighting because I quite like not-so-professional looking photographs on blogs.

With the chill in the air comes a need for warm scarves and this tartan scarf* from Topman is my current favourite. Even though it's not chunky, it's really warm and I'll definitely be needing it this afternoon because it's so windy outside. I'm currently hoping my fence doesn't blow down!

This is a slight cheat because I only got this at the very end of the month, but I'm so excited about it and I couldn't wait to talk about it. This is the sweetest hare necklace* from Jana Reinhardt and it's so, so beautiful. I really like that it's dainty but there's a lot of detail & the tiny pop of red from the bead really makes this an extra special piece.

A few months ago I re-read the first Harry Potter book for my University module and I thought I'd take the opportunity to carry on with the series. I hadn't read the Chamber of Secrets in a really long time because it's my least favourite of the seven, but I really enjoyed it. It's a really quick read and although it's still my least favourite, I loved it a little more than I thought I did.

Lastly is this Love sign from DotComGiftShop. I'm usually not hugely into signs that say love or anything like that, but I really like the font & the colours they've used on this one and it's made a really sweet addition to my new bookshelf.

What were your non-beauty favourites from November?
Did you have a good month?

Love, Jennie
xoxo

  32. It's so funny that so many have the Chamber of Secrets as their least favorite of the HP series (I like it but it's my least favorite as well). Love the scarf! :)
