November Favourites

I haven’t done a favourites post in a while and thought #blogmas was the perfect time to bring it back.  Here is what I have been loving this month.

Netflix – Salem

I have been watching this while Ste has been in hospital as it isn’t really his cup of tea.  I have really been enjoying it though and have enjoyed looking more into the history of the Salem witch trials as a result (I am a bit of a history geek).  I am about half way through the second season now and there are three online, will hopefully be finished the whole lot by Christmas.

I also finally got round to watching Bridget Jones’s Baby and really enjioyed it!  Perfect for a cosy, girlie night in!

Aldi Cheddar and Cracked Black Pepper Thins

I picked these up in Aldi and they are super delicious.  Perfect for a snack with some homemade salsa or with a little cheese spread on – I hope I will be able to find them in there again.  That is one of the only problems with Aldi – they don’t have everything in there everytime you go in!

Starbucks Eggnog Latte

So so pleased to see these back in Starbucks!  I have never tried proper Eggnog before and think I need to give it a go this Christmas, but these taste amazing!

Asda Red Pepper and Wensleydale Soup

Nothing says Winter to me like a bowl of soup!  I often pick up two or three of the fresh soup cartons from Asda when I do the shopping, which do me two meals each.  This month I saw this one for the first time and it is really tasty!  I took out the pieces of pepper skin as my ostomy would definitely object if I ate those, but they are quite big and easy enough to remove.  I also love the Broccoli and Stilton one they do too.

MakeUp Revolution Advent Calendar

Ste got me the Yankee Candle Advent Calendar and this year he has got me this one – I love it!  Really cant wait to open the doors and see what is inside.  Be sure to be following mwe on Instagram as I will be sharing what I get over on my stories!

Christmas Tree Scent Sticks

I picked these up in B & M and they smell amazing!  Can’t wait to pop them in my tree so the whole living room smells of them!

Geeky Melts Wax Melts

Everyone who knows me, knows I love my candles and wax melts.  I was really pleased to be sent some wax melts from Geeky Melts to try.  They worked really well for two burns and the scents were amazing and different from any I had had from other places.  I love the different designs they do (including fab Christmas ones at the moment) and think  they would make perfect gifts.

I do hope you have enjoyed my little round up this month.  I am sure there will be LOTS for me to share in the December round up – it is one of my favourite months of the year after all!  What have you been enjoying this month?  Let me know in the comments below so I can try them out,


Good morning! Was recharging the batteries yesterday so didn’t post. Needed a good rest and also managed to go through all my paperwork which has needed doing since I moved, so feel like I did some good!

Had a bit of nice news on Sunday night when i found out I had won a Facebook competition I had entered on a local wax melts page. Yesterday I went and collected my prize – a burner and a selection of wax melts. Laura was lovely and didn’t mind letting me smell some of the melts she had made in the scents I had won and some I hadn’t.

On getting home from the school run in the afternoon I decided to try out my prize and popped a quarter of a pot of ‘Jamaica Me Crazy’ into my new burner and popped a candle underneath. It wasn’t long till my living room was filled with the most amazing smell!

I’ve previously ordered wax melts from other places and found that the scent quickly disappears and all I can then smell is hot wax – not pleasant! This however, lasted all evening so I was super impressed! I’ve also been told i should be able to relight it today and it still smell lush – will comment with an update when I put it on later but I will be really happy if I can get more than one burn out of them too!

I’m really looking forward to trying out some of the other melts – particularly the ‘Monkey Farts’ – a fun name and for someone who misses farting since having my bag, it just makes me smile!

I like to give credit where it’s due and Princess Melts deserves it for making fab products and for putting a smile on my face with my prize! I’m posting a link to the page for any of you interested in buying your own. If you are local you can collect but they can also be posted out too for those further afield! I hope your noses will be as happy as mine is!
