november favourites

November has mostly been a month of makeup and skin care favourites because I got to go to Sephora a few times. I'm also gonna talk about some movies and tv shows I've been obsessed with lately.

Makeup and Skin Care

In terms of makeup I've really been loving the Nudestix eye shadow stick in the colour Terra. It is just a really pretty neutral shade and it's super easy to apply. I repurchased the Benefit "They're Real" mascara because it has been my favourite for a while now. I also got a sample of the Jose Maran 100% pure argan oil which works great on dry skin.

2. Journal

Journalling is a great way to keep all your thoughts organized and to get everything off your chest. I like to carry around small ones and write down all my homework and assignments for school so I don't forget anything.
3. Take care of your skin

Face masks can be such a relaxing thing that I like to treat myself to every once in a while. One of my favourites recently has been the Fresh Rose Face Mask because it's super hydrating. Before I put on a mask though I use the Angels on Bare Skin exfoliator from Lush.
4. Listen to Music

While I do homework I often like to li…
