December 3rd • Posted in Favourites
I don’t usually spend time to talk about how the month’s gone by so quickly, but I just can’t even realize the year is practically gone and we’re now facing the last month of this 2014! Seriously, where’s time going? It feels like yesterday when I was compiling my monthly favourites list for September! And yet it was yesterday that I did it for November and today’s time to share a few favourites from last month… In November I’ve discovered a few new pretty things I can’t wait to share with you, including a lot of chocolate and a fluffy sweater, so let’s jump right into this second to last favourites post of the year!
I warned you there was going to be a lot of chocolate! This month I’ve discovered the deliciousness of lime when paired with chocolate: I’ve always been a fan of the flavour of citrus + dark chocolate (which reminds me that I have a pretty delicious biscuits recipe to share!) but I’ve actually always stuck to orange and never tried something different so this delicious Lindt Excellence Dark Lime* chocolate bar was such a nice discovery to me: the combo it’s totally fancy, dark chocolate suits so well the citrus flavour of the zest of lime – both warming and refreshing, this must be one of my favourite flavours of dark chocolate! But I have a pick for milk chocolate lovers too: I happened to be at Tiger last week and on a last minute pick before going to the cash desk, we picked up these super cute Milk Chocolate Covered Hazelnuts… and they taste like heaven! I’m such a fan of hazelnuts in my chocolate bars, but these were even cuter and surely pretty damn delicious!
On a side note, I’ve got an insane addiction to Crossy Road – oh dear, I’m not even sure it’s healthy to suggest it, but if you’re bored, have some pretty long queue and waiting to do, are stuck somewhere without other forms of entertainment, well you might want to remember of me telling this is such a good game to play at your phone! – I’m going to end it here, remember it’s your choice to take or not take the hint!
Let’s talk of homeware bits & bobs, shall we? I’ve already shown you my latest addition to my mug collection recently, however I think this beautiful and so inexpensive Ikea Enigt Mug deserves another mention over on this blog – it’s quickly become my new favourite mug and I bet you all mugs lovers can see why! I’m also pretty obsessed with the Yankee Candle Snowflake Cookie scent – this seems to be made just for me, such a beautiful sweet food-inspired scent I was sure I would have loved even before smelling it – just look at that label! I’ve picked up the Sampler Votive Candle instead of a big one just because I’ve way too many candles to burn out already, but I’m sure this will be one of the next full-size candles that will join my arsenal.
Last on the homeware front are the beautifully-made Duvet Cover Sets from H&M Home. I must admit I’ve a weakness for anything from the home section of H&M – but if there’s one thing they do well that is for sure the duvet sets’ designs (they’re all so beautiful!) and since when I tried my first one I’ve picked up two more, one for my boyfriend and this beauty for me and I can’t wait to make good use out of them all!
Lastly I must mention my November’s sweater crush, the Sugarhill Boutique Fluffy Sweater* (which you can see in action over here): it’s the softest, warmest, cosiest sweater that has ever sat in my wardrobe and such a staple for any ‘I want to wear something cute but I don’t care too much’ kind of situation!
What have you loved in November?
