November Favourites

Its December, we are now officially entering Christmas season - meaning you can play the christmas music, drink mulled wine and be jolly to your hearts content!

I thought I would share some of my favourites from the month of November!

KIKO eyeshaddow palette - 01 lounge warm tones. I bought this at the end of October when I was in Berlin and I love it so much, perfect for autumn/winter looks

MAC Ruby Woo lipstick - Classic blue toned matte red, its perfect winter colour

These Topshop chelsea boots - I've barely worn anything else on my feet, these are really great quality leather and such a classic style

Tartan scarf this is actually from a kilt shop in Inverness a few years ago but I love it so much, such a classic (found it on ASOS!)

And lastly I've been lovely Tumblr, really late on the bandwagon with this one but you can follow me here if you would like

So those are a few of my favourites this month :)
Hope you are all looking forward to christmas as much as I am, although I have a lot of essays to do before then!

to cut?

Cheryl Cole 
Fearne Cotton
Alexa Chung

 I can't stop thinking about cutting my hair short..
Am I mad? Probs.
My hair is currently about boob level but I've always wanted it to be just below them.. yet recently all I can think about is having a shorter do.
I think it'll be easier to manage but who knows weather i'll actually have the balls to do it!

Maybe in a few months..
I don't know why i'm so worried about cutting my hair short. I think its good to experiment, espeically when it'll grow back eventually, but when people tell you "you'll regret it" it makes you think twice doesn't it?

I love Cheryl's texturised bob, but I think thats a little too short for me. I think that Alexa and Claudia's effortless tousled look will be how i'd wear my hair daily, yet I think that Fearne's sleek and straight hair also looks gorgeous!
