Another month has passed and we are now well underway with the countdown to Christmas! November has again been another one of those months which has flew by in an instant. I've spent a lot of this month curled up on the sofa either engrossed into a film or a book, since reading The Little Book of Hygge. Earlier this month I loaned it from my local library I have been embracing the 'hygge' vibes and it's really benefited my mental health. I really hope I will get my own copy of the book from Santa!

With that in mind a lot of my favourites is centred around this book, I did have a lot more favourites but I picked 5 that stood out amongst the rest. I've also included some blog posts I have been really enjoyed reading this month, make sure you check them out.

01. The Crown, Netflix
I am a big royalist, I get so interested in the affairs of the Royals and so when word about a new Netflix-original drama that had been circulating and making waves on Twitter I knew I needed to sit back and watch it. I am hooked, it's so bloody good! It follows Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to modern times. I love this insight into a significant time in our country's history and seeing the Queen's husband portrayed in a way that I never thought. I am already halfway through the season and wish it would last longer, Season 2 in 2017 please?

02. *Apple & Ginger Pudding Candle, £25.00 Aromand Candles 
Nothing says Autumn/Winter and Hygge vibes then lighting as many candles as possible in your household to feel all cosy and for it to smell incredible. I was sent a Apple & Pudding Candle from Aromand Candle to try out this month and this one is my favourite. The combination of fresh apple, lashings of gingers and a splash of one of two sugar notes creates the perfect comfort candle for these colder months. I love how these candles have been packaged too, it's so simplistic and classic making great gifts for someone!



03. Dick Whittington Pantomime, Belgrade Theatre, Coventry
I am well and truly in the festive spirit this month, especially so after watching the Dick Whittington pantomime at Belgrade Theatre in Coventry. It was full of so much fun and I legit came out with my face and sides hurting from laughing so hard! It's a real treat for all of the family and I am planning to go and watch it again during December with my parents.

04. T2 Mulled Wine Magic.
This time of year I absolutely love drinking on Mulled Wine in the evenings, it's the perfect festive blend and this month I discovered a product which is as good as the alcoholic stuff I've come to love. But without being alcoholic and in the shape of a loose tea leaf product, my month has been changed by the Mulled Wine Magic tea from T2. It is delicious and I haven't been able to stop raving about it. It's such a nice blend of winter favourites and really makes you feel all nice and cosy during these colder nights!

05. Now That's What I Call Christmas Album, £9.33 Amazon UK
This month I made a sneaky purchase whilst doing some Christmas shopping online, you know the score you buy somebody a present but then give permission for something to be brought for yourself. I brought a Christmas Album and boy isn't it good! Me and Jordan have had this playing regularly whilst travelling to and from press events, shopping etc and loved our little festive sing songs. I'm definitely going to write a post about my favourite Christmas Songs, just because I can!


And here's some blog posts I have absolutely loved reading this month;

♦ Little Miss Katy's HOW TO CREATE YOUR PERFECT INSTAGRAM THEME is the perfect motivation to help shape your Instagram feed. 
♦ Sophie over on Sophie Rosie celebrated her second blog birthday in such a lovely way with, 2 YEARS OF BLOGGING IN NUMBERS and it really motivated me with my own content.
♦ Myself and my friend Kirstie visited THE GIN FESTIVAL, LEICESTER | CHIN CHIN!  and Kirstie's post is such a lovely read from the event!
