November is gone, and with it, I accumulated a bunch of favourites. I thought to myself, why not make posts about my new favourite things? People on YouTube do them all the time, and I love watching them. They’re quite addicting. So from now on, I’m thinking of doing monthly favourites, or seasonal favourites based on what I really enjoyed.
First off, in November, I fell in love with the Essie Nail Polish in Bahama Mama. I’ve been eyeing this eggplant shade for a few months now, and I finally bought it at the end of October. I have been wearing this colour ever since! It’s the perfect fall colour that’s not cool-toned. It looks stunning on the nails! Also on this shopping trip, I picked up Maybelline’s Matte Lipstick in Nude Nuance. This shade wasn’t available in Canada for a while, and I’m so happy it is! It’s the perfect darkened rose colour. I like to wear it on its own with no eye makeup, but if I’m looking for something more dramatic, a smokey eye would look amazing too.
During the Sephora VIB Sale, I was able to pick up the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, and the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer. These two products blowed me way, and have become holy grail status for me. I can’t wait to try more things from Fenty Beauty. I would highly recommend getting the foundation if you have oily skin, but only if you have that skin type. I think I might write a review on the foundation soon.
For books, I read three in November, but two of them have a special place in my heart. I read Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery, and Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson. Both of these books were written by Canadian women, and are fantastic reads. Both are quite funny, and would be great books to add to your collection. Although both books depict a different Canadian experience, both show how diverse life in Canada truly is. I know Anne of Green Gables is already a Canadian classic, but I would suggest reading Son of a Trickster first. It was nominated for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, and I’m sure it will become a new Canadian classic in the future.
November was also a month of great television. I’ve been watching The Punisher, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, and the finale of The Mindy Project. All three of these shows are drastically different from one another, but all three reveal the complexity of my interests. All of these shows are addicting to watch, and are so unique to anything else that’s on television, especially Dirk Gently. I was sad to see The Mindy Project end, but I was very happy with the way it ended. I’ve been watching The Mindy Project for years now, and I will greatly miss it.
