November Favourites - Bohemian Rhapsody, Christmas Markets & Baking!

I really can't believe it's my penultimate monthly favourites of the year! I've loved sharing some of my favourite products and places each month but hasn't this year gone so fast? I'm incredibly happy it's December now and we're getting closer and closer to Christmas day but I'm also a little sad that it will be over before we know it!

Manchester Christmas Markets - The first thing I had to mention is our lovely day in Manchester. It's a place we always love to go back to but even more so at Christmas time. They just do Christmas markets so well and I always leave feeling incredibly festive. In fact, within days of us getting back home this time, the tree went up and our flat is currently in full on Christmas mode. The main market at Albert Square is always so cosy and the stalls they have get better each year. We had some amazing food there this year and I kind of want to go back again before it's all over again.

Twist and Spritz Perfume Holder* - I love love love my perfume. I've got several bottles at the moment I can't stop using but the issue I have with that, is that I often can't take them away with me. Most perfume bottles tend to be quite big and bulky and it's just not possible to have them on the go with you so you can forever be smelling gorgeous. For that reason I've been loving Twist and Spritz. This enables you to enjoy your favourite fragrance wherever you are as it can easily fit into your handbag or coat pocket. It's easy to fill and allows for approximately 100 sprays, it's also available in loads of colours but I love the rose gold in particular. It's £10 at The Fragrance Shop at the moment so might be a nice extra Christmas present!

Christmas Baking - As we've been feeling very festive over the last few weeks, I couldn't resist one of the new baking kits when I was ordering a food shop. I definitely don't bake as much as I used to and George and I very, very rarely bake together so this little kit made such a nice change. It was such a nice way to spend some time together and whilst our biscuits didn't turn out amazingly well, it was so much fun and now I'm keen to get some of the other ones they have out at the moment so we can do some more baking together over Christmas.

Bohemian Rhapsody - This film. There is a reason it's all anyone has been able to talk about recently. Whilst I did like Queen's music before this film, I wouldn't have said I was a huge fan but as soon as I saw the trailer for this, I knew it was one to watch. Based on Freddie Mercury and Queen's rise to fame, it was so interesting to watch and to find out more about them all. Of course the music was brilliant and I loved how certain songs fitted into the story and the live aid recreation was insane. It feels like you're actually there when you watch it. All the actors that were chosen were spot on, incredible. Definitely up there as one of my favourite films of the year.
Informer - I'm not going to lie, when I first saw this advertised on TV a few months ago, I didn't think it would be my sort of program or one that I'd get stuck into but I ended up being pleasantly surprised. Whilst I didn't have high hopes, I did want to give it a chance as the queen herself Rachel Tucker had quite a big role as Sharon and I was excited to see her in something other than a musical. Well, I thought the whole series was outstanding. It's about Raza who finds himself in a tricky situation with the police in the first episode and how he ends up being coerced into informing for the counter-terrorism unit. It does start off a little slow as we're introduced to the characters and as Raza adjusts to this new life but it soon gets going and within a few episodes, we were desperate to see how it was going to end. We ended up watching it all within a few days and now I'm ready for series 2 already.

Butter London Eyeliner* - I've always thought of nail polish when it comes to Butter London so I was surprised to find out they actually do several different beauty products such as bronzer palettes, mascara, lip gloss, and more. I've been trying out their Glazen Lustrous Liner over the last month and I've been really impressed. I always wear pencil eyeliner, it's such a staple in my makeup bag but it had been a long time since I'd used a liquid eyeliner so I was curious to see what this would be like. One of the things I love about it is how easy it is to use. It's a weightless liner with a fine tip so it makes for an effortless and precise line and I just love the finished look after using this. I've not been applying loads of this but I've found just a little really makes your eyes stand out. It's currently £10 at Feel Unique if you want to try too.
