Wow, I can’t believe we’re in the 3rd week of November already! The time is flying by, Thanksgiving is next week and then before we know it, it will be Christmas. I’m so excited to be going home for Christmas this year. While I loved spending Christmas here in America last year with my family, I really missed home and my friends.
So I’ve started doing these monthly favorites. I hope you all have been enjoying them. I’ve decided to do October and November in one and include a few more things, as I feel the need to share a lot this time!
My October / November Favorites
1. My marble laptop hard shell case
Wow I can’t believe what a find this one was! I’ve been wanting a hard shell for my MacBook Pro for a while and accidentally stumbled across this one on Amazon. It was so cheap and is perfect for what I want. It also came with a keyboard cover. I actually couldn’t decide between the marble and the fuchsia pink case so I got both, and that is why I have a pink keyboard.

2. Ardell False Lashes
I can’t believe I’ve never tried these myself before. I’m pretty sure they are the ones my favourite makeup artist (Martha Ryan) puts on me and I’ve never gotten around to asking which ones they are. I picked up the ‘Natural’ and ‘Wispies’, I love them! They’re very easy to apply and feel so light on your eyes. (here)
3. Ardell Eyebrow Pomade
So when I picked up the Ardell lashes I saw their eyebrow pomade. I can’t believe how good it is! It’s just like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow but is only $7.99 and comes with the brush as well. I got it in shade ‘Dark Brown’ #68272. Available at CVS & Sallys (here)
4. Westworld – Tv Show
I’ve totally become hooked on HBO’s latest show, Westworld. As usual it is HBO standard which means it is a high-quality show. I’d rate it at least and 8 out of 10. If you like shows such as Black Mirror, Game of Thrones or Sherlock this is a show for you. I cannot recommend it enough! I won’t say much more as I don’t want to ruin it.
5. Michael Kors Fall Jacket
I got this jacket so long ago and have been dying for fall so I can wear it. It is water resistant and lined with soft short faux fur to keep you warm. It’s also a lovely grey colour that is so slick and smart. It’s on sale RIGHT NOW in Nordstorm Rack for only $84.97 (here).
6. Marble contact paper – DIY Marble counter
OMG I found this because of Erika Fox (Retro Flame). She posted it with all her DIYs and I had to get it. It’s the best $9 I’ve ever spent. I used a hardcover book to flatten it down. It went on quickly and smoothly, and looks real. It transformed my kitchen! (link at bottom)
7. Duo Glue – dark-tone
Not only have I found that Duo Glue is a quality strong eyelash glue, but this brown tone is an added bonus. It makes the whole process easier and there is no visible glue on your eyelid!
