November Favourites - The Missing, New Shoes & Hot Chocolate!

I actually can't believe it's December already and it's time for another monthly favourites, this year has just flown by! My November favourites include a few brilliant TV shows, some new music and a few other random extras!
The Missing Source, James Arthur Source, Dark Angel Source.
The Missing - This has been my favourite thing on TV for the last few months now and it finally came to an end last Wednesday. If you didn't watch it then what have you been doing with your life! It was amazing! If you don't know anything about it then it is basically about a woman who has just returned in Germany after being missing for 11 years, she claims to be Alice Webster but the mother has doubts and over 8 episodes we found who she really was, where she had been and who had taken her. It was such a complex story and there were twists in every episode, every time I thought I had it figured out, something massive would happen and I would be just as confused as I was at the beginning! Every episode was great but the last few were just brilliant. I didn't want it to end.

New Look Camo Pumps - I never buy new shoes but last month I ordered these Camo Slip On Pumps from New Look and they have become my new favourite pair. I wanted them for London and Manchester as I knew we'd be doing a lot of walking and I couldn't face wearing my boots for both trips as they kill my feet. These were on offer for £7 down from £15.99 which I think is a great price for shoes I know I'll get a lot of wear out of. I wasn't sure how they would look on me, these are definitely out of my comfort zone and so different to anything I've had before but I think they actually look really nice. They are so comfy and go great with skinny jeans, I'll definitely be looking for more like this in the future.

Hot Chocolate - I always love having hot chocolate at this time of year, with loads of cream on top and mini marshmallows. I go mad with the cream but that's the best bit! It's been so nice to have one of these as a treat at the weekend, it makes me feel so cosy and christmassy.

James Arthur Back From The Edge - I loved James Arthur back when he was on the X Factor and I'm so glad he's back after a few years away with a new album. I love his first single from this album 'Say You Won't Let Go' it's just a great song and the lyrics are so lovely, it makes me emosh. There are a few other brilliant songs on the album too including Back From The Edge and The Truth. Definitely recommend giving it a listen if you haven't already!

Dark Angel - This was a two part series on ITV in November about Britain's first ever serial killer, a Victorian lady called Mary Ann Cotton. Over a period of time she killed several people including husbands and children aswell as others too, it is thought she killed up to 21 people before she was caught! Joanne Froggatt played her and she was brilliant, so convincing and really creepy! To say there were only two episodes loads happened and it never got boring or felt too rushed, we hadn't even planned to watch this, just found it on ITV and got hooked by it. It's still online to watch if you missed it.

Bath and Body Works Hand Gel - This was something I won in a giveaway, and it smells amazing. The scent is Coconut Pumpkin Latte, one I would probably never think to choose. It smells really sweet and it lasts for hours! I put a bit of this on my hands when I first got it and even though I then went to have a shower, when I got out my hands still smelled of it and they did for hours and hours. It just smells lovely and it's great to keep in my bag or pocket for when I'm out.

London & Manchester - I couldn't not mention our two trips away. Both were so lovely and it was great to just get away and relax. London was amazing as always, Oxford Street was so pretty with all of the christmas lights on and Wicked was incredible. Manchester was great also, I love that we go every year for the Christmas Market, it's something we always look forward to and I think this year they had the best stalls and food compared to previous years. I already can't wait for next year.

In case you missed it, last months favourites - October - The Fall, Herbal Essences and Thorntons!

Those camo shoes are so cute, and perfect for days when it's too chilly for flats and too warm for boots! I'm always so jealous of the TV shows you get across the pond -- ours are so boring!
