I am so excited for Christmas this month but I am unfortunately so busy for the next few weeks and I don’t think I have a day off till the 21st of December which makes me weep, I have never been so busy with work and school as I am now, which is why I have been staring at this post for a week.
So I did get up to a few exciting things in the month of November, I found a new coffee shop in town called Utopia (X) Coffee Lounge and I am in love. It is super cosy, lots of arm chairs and mismatched furniture, the tea and coffee is amazing and the prices are really good as well. When I was in there I was reading my copy of A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway and I had a really interesting conversation with a gentleman about Hemingway’s work and it was a definitely a highlight of my month.
I also went to the not so magical place that is IKEA for the first time in forever and I think I had to high expectations and they were not met but I managed to get my new book shelf and Amy and I didn’t need no man to help us get it in the car!!
Tis the season to go to Christmas market and Amy and I travelled up to Bury St Edmunds to go to their Christmas Market and I had a great time I did pick up a few bits and bobs while I was there, I love a good market stool. They had a large variety of stools so if you can get to a market then I really recommend you do. I am tempted to go up to London to go to Spitalfields again this year.
There was also a Doctor Who Stand which was all kinds of amazing and there was maybe just a little bit of fangirling.

Maxfactor Masterpiece MAX Mascara in Black £9.99 from Boots (x)
OMG this is an amazing mascara my eyelashes have never looked so long! I wanted a new everyday mascara and I had read good reviews of this one so I decided to pick it up. Now I constantly use it, I usually put on a primer before hand but even when I don’t use it with a primer it is still a brilliant product. It makes my lashes curl beautifully and it lasts all day and I don’t have to worry about it flaking. I would definitely recommend this product if you are looking for a good mascara without spending the earth.
I have been so busy that I haven’t had much time to watch any TV hopefully next month I’ll have some time to watch something!
The christmas movie channels have returned! I do love a cheesy lifetime Christmas movie. So I have been watching a lot of these this month because my mum often has them on when I return from work.
I have only watched the first two episodes of this show and to be honest I can’t say I am particularly impressed. I am going to keep trying but in all honestly I don’t think its for me which is a shame because I think Matt Bomer and Lady Gaga has been great, but I miss Jessica Lange. Maybe that is it? We shall see ??!?!
