November To-Do List


1. Tidy up my birthday mess from the end of October and find a new place for everything.
2. Make Bonfire Night Buns. I found an incredible recipe here that I'd love to put my own twist on.
3. Take some time to relax before I start my new job on the 6th.
4. Kick off my Christmas shopping by composing a list of what to get my nearest and dearest.
5. Finish Stranger Things 2 and get excited for Peaky Blinders returning on the 15th, I can't wait!
6. Check out the Essie Galaxy Metals collection. The entire collection looks completely dreamy, but I particularly like the look of Stardust and Stars Aligned.
7. Drink more water. Now that the cold weather is well and truly upon us, it's important to stay hydrated to avoid dry skin, chapped lips and help fight off the cold.
8. Snap up an advent calendar before they're gone. I'm torn between the ASOS Advent Calendar and the Tili Advent Calendar.
9. Start the hunt for beautifully embellished, cosy Christmas jumpers. So far I've found this pink sequin bauble one, this grey pearl penguin one and this black sequin dachshund one - all so cute!
10. Switch up my home decor and add more twinkling fairy lights, thicker, fluffier blankets and warm, comforting candles.

  6. Sweet to-do list Sara, everything is so perfectly themed for the colder months, and feeling cosy! I would love to know if you snap up a beauty advent calendar, I had The Sanctuary one last year, but this year I’m going to put the money towards something else, such as a new camera lens. There seems to be some lovely Christmas jumpers out lately, including some chic and fun designs. Hope your new job and month is going well, take care. :-) xx
