November Favorite Things

Hey guys!  I'M SO EXCITED!  Today, I'm sharing my favorite things for November, and Kylie from Lip Gloss and Lunges and I are hosting our first linkup!

So here are my favorite things for November:

One: Buxom Lip Polish in Dolly

This lip polish came in my Ipsy box (Ipsy review here).  At first,  I was a little hesitant.  I try to stay away from lip glosses because they almost over hydrate my lips and make them peel.  I do not have any problem with this stuff.  It is tingly, so it plumps without stinging, and has an awesome sheer color.  

Two: Derek

If you have Netflix, you really must watch this show.  It is done by the same hilarious guy who created The Office and has many similarities.  It takes place in a nursing home in England.  This show will make you laugh and cry with every episode.  Super heartwarming.

Three: Burberry Classic

Ahhh!  My mom has worn this starting in the fall for almost as long as I can remember.  This has the perfect vanilla spicey smell.  It can be kind of hard to find, but if you ever come across it, give it a smell.  It's heavenly.

Four: Breaking Bad

For those of you that have lived under a rock, like myself, and haven't watched Breaking Bad, you've GOT to start.  I'm normally not into dramas.  I'm more of a reality TV kind of girl, but Breaking Bad is seriously awesome.  Beware though, it is addicting.

Five: Not Your Mother's- She's a Tease Volumizing Hairspray

I have fine hair, but lots of it.  It lays very flat against my head, so I have a hard time getting some volume.  I take a teasing comb and some of this stuff, and I'm getting big hair.  This isn't too heavy, but still has lots of hold.  I definitely recommend it if you're hair is similar to mine.

Six: Sabra Roasted Garlic Hummus

As I've posted here, I'm a garlic fiend.  This hummus has the best, garlicy taste.  There are pieces of minced garlic in the center that you stir into it.  I eat it with carrot sticks and pretzel chips.  Seriously, I go through more of this stuff than I care to mention.

Seven: The Body Shop- Aloe Protective Restoring Mask

I get scary dry skin in the fall and winter.  My face is flake city.  It's gross.  This is a hydrating mask that you can put on after your shower.  Leave it on for ten minutes and tissue it off.  My skin usually drinks most of it up, so I don't have much to wipe off in the end.  It has a very gentle scent if any scent, so it wont irritate sensitive skin.

Eight: Target C9 Advanced Cold Weather Running Tights

I'm SO HAPPY that I've found these.  I was having some serious cold weather running anxiety.  Normally, I don't handle cold well.  These tights are fleece lined, so they don't let the harsh wind through.  There are zippers behind each ankle and a small zipper pouch on the back of the waistband.  They also don't ride down and give you a "low crotch."  Many of the tights that I wear fall off of my flat behind, these stay right up where they need to be.

Nine: Cartwheel

This may be what I'm most excited about for the month.  As you know if you read my sidebar, I'm the Target lady.  I LOVE Target.  It's a total one stop shop, and I'm already mourning the fact that Peoria doesn't have a Super Target.  (Don't even get me started, regular Target IS NOT Super Target)  Anyways, I'm terrible about remembering coupons, so having an app on your phone ensures that you will always have them.  If you don't have this app, get it!  It's a Pinterest style app that allows you to "pin" a certain number of coupons.  The more active you are with the app, the higher the number of coupons you can use.

Beauty and the Greek

Alright, there are my favorite things for November, now it's your turn to link up.  It will be open for another week, and we would love it if you'd join us!  Link up below.


  1. I love the Not Your Mother's line! I have their dry shampoo and the thermal shield spray, I'll have to try the hairspray now. That Hummus is so addicting, love it!

  2. I cannot even begin to tell you how much I LOVE Derek - I thought I was the only one watching this show. I love how they very rarely ever touch on the fact that he's disabled. The show is sheer genius and I always end up sobbing and laughing my butt off all in the same episode.
    I also LOVED Breaking Bad - really some addictive TV.
    Thanks for hosting this great Link Up!

  3. Found you from skinny Meg's blog. :-) Thanks for the motivation to start back up with daily mile. I added you. ;-) I did not know that about cartwheel. I use it because we love their market pantry bread. Will try to be more conscious of it in the future when I go. Looking forward to your blog posts. :-)

  4. Yay for our first link up! Funny that we both included something for teasing hair! Burberry classic is one of my my favorite perfumes ever. I can immediately smell it on someone! I need to check out this cartwheel app! I have never heard of it!

  5. Love this favorites list! I'll have to try out that Target app and glad to find a new show on Netflix, I've already watched all 30 Rock and Parks and Rec episodes!!

  6. Cartwheel might be hands down one of my favorite apps I ever downloaded! You add the Red Card on top of that and you could say that I have slight obsession with Target!!

  7. My husband and I just started watching Breaking bad ... Like last week! Ha ha! I love it! Also, I got old navy compression pants for running, and they seem great for colder weather too!

  8. Going to have to try the teasing spray!! I have their Dry Shampoo and I LOVE IT!!!

  9. I LOVE the garlic roasted hummus too! I've tried some of the other flavors but the classic and garlic are def. my favorite.

  10. I love love Cartwheel!! I was so excited when I first heard about it, and plan on using it for the first time this weekend- hopefully I can walk out without spending $50+ (haha, yeah right). I like this idea for a linkup- I'm going to join next week! Have a great weekend!

  11. hey hey! Look at you with all your linkups! love it. Better late than never for me, right? I LOVE DOLLY. Oh my gosh. I've been using it for a few years now, and it's my favorite! It's probably the most expensive makeup item I buy, but it's so worth it!

  12. I just wanted to say I found your blog through Skinny Meg and LOVE it! Excited to be a regular follower and especially see progress on your house...I'm a huge design fan and love the griege you picked out!

  13. Love me some target, I have been holding off on getting the app forever but know I should just bite the bullet!! LOVED your link up with Skinny Meg! Just catching up today :)
