NOVEMBER RECAP

Hey there my little snow bunnies. ♡ Wow, November has really flown by! In all honesty, I can easily say it was a very uneventful month, but I want to be sure to acknowledge and appreciate even the smallest of events each month.

DAD AND BROSKI CAME TO TOWN

  • Having half of my family living across the country is definitely hard, so I try to soak up as much quality time as possible with them when they are in town, whether it be staying in playing board games or going out and stuffing our faces with some tasty grub.

WHAT CAN I SAY? I’M A BASKETBALL GIRL

  • Love my school and love supporting my school, which means I love putting on my Hoosier gear and going to basketball games! Don’t get me wrong, football season is great and all (aka tailgating), but there’s just something about being able to keep track of the ball and know what’s going on in the game that makes basketball much more appealing to me HA.

THANKSGIVING FESTIVITIES

  • This Thanksgiving was much different from prior Thanksgivings in the fact that my loving mother invited anyone from our work who didn’t have a place to go on Thanksgiving over to our place to have a HUGE, extremely delicious meal!

FRIENDS

  • Forever grateful for the people who choose to be in my life and I believe they always deserve recognition. Huge shoutout to Nathanial who has always made an effort to be in my life, even if it means asking his mother to drive him 2 hours to my house because his car is ass.

MY MANS

  • Jackson turned 21 this month! How exciting right?! So he took a whole day off work and we enjoyed each other’s company (just as we always do). Here’s a cute picture of when I forced him to do face masks with me!AB852B60-C1D7-44D6-8A14-DA4B5DD1323A

PUPPY LOVE

  • Hershey came into my life as a puppy a couple weeks before I moved to Bloomington and each time I see him, he’s doubled in size. I am sure to soak in all of his cuddles and puppy kisses when I get to see him!

I GOT A KITTY

  • Had to save the best for last. After looking for a sweet kitty to adopt all month and having a couple let downs, I got blessed with the sweetest, most loving kitty ever. I’d like you guys to meet Littlefoot, or littles or meow meow or cuteness or mamas or whiskers for short. She loves attention, back rubs, tummy rubs, treats and making love to my fuzzy bathrobe. I couldn’t of asked for a better kitty to call mine ♡

Despite not having a very eventful month, I most definitely can say it was a good one! So much to be grateful for. That is one reason I genuinely enjoy doing Monthly Recap posts. Before starting this post, I questioned what I would talk about because much of this month seemed like a blur due to the stress of finals coming up, but after looking back at the pictures and trying to recollect, I was able to remember all of the good that came out of this month.

I encourage each and every one of you to do this as well at the end of each month. I am guilty of letting the negative aspects of life override all of the positive aspects and given how easy it is to do, I am sure many of ya’ll are guilty of it as well. Work with me in breaking this bad habit! Work with me in recognizing even the smallest aspects of life that give you joy.

Together, lets consistently strive to have the positive aspects of life towering high over the negative aspects.

NOVEMBER MONTHLY FAVORITES

The month of giving thanks! This is my absolute favorite time of year; there’s just something about the excitement of Christmas shopping, decorating for Christmas, oh and of course spending an entire day shoving turkey and mashed potatoes down your throat! I’ve picked out a couple different items that have religiously been used this month and in months prior so I hope you find some of these items as useful as I do!

  • Calming Pillow Spray Have you ever felt so exhausted before that you had trouble falling asleep? Insomnia can really take over sometimes and this stuff works magic when that seems to be the case. The initial smell alone soothes all senses, putting your mind in a calm state and ready for a good night’s rest. I was able to find my pillow spray at T.J. Maxx for $5.99 but of course, T.J. Maxx stores don’t always carry the same products so if you are interested in purchasing, you can find this product here for $7.99.

  • Facial Exfoliator Cleanser You may be wondering, whats the point in washing my face with a brush I have to buy instead of just using my hands for free? I wondered the exact same thing and it wasn’t clear to me until I went from using this brush back to using my hands for several months. Your hands are capable of lathering your face wash onto your face, but unlike a brush, they are incapable of deep cleaning those pesky pores that LOVE building up dirt and grime. On top of deep cleaning, the silicone pad makes it easy to exfoliate your face while washing it! Yay for 2 in 1’s! I was lucky enough to find this product at T.J. Maxx for $5.99, however if you are struggling to find it there, you can also purchase here for $9.45.
  • Tangle Free Hair Brush Many are unaware of how delicate our hair is while wet and I have an extremely bad habit of being very rough with the tangles in my hair when its wet. NOT ANYMORE! I went from pulling what feels like half of my hair out every time I got out of the shower, to not pulling a single strand out! Now that my hair is getting longer, tangles are inevitable, so if you are in the same predicament as I am, this brush is most definitely the brush for you! You can find this product here for $7.95.

  • Essie Nail Polish: Clothing Optional 1015 Essie nail polish never disappoints and this color a the perfect neutral fall/winter color for the holiday season! Not too subtle but not over the top. This is my go-to color and if I’m feeling a little frisky, I’ll add a silver glitter polish on top! You can find this color here for $8.97.

  • Charcoal Black Peel off Mask This is the only peel off mask I have tried. I was nervous at first about the pain of peeling the mask off due to past reviews over other charcoal peel off masks, however this mask was not painful whatsoever. I avoided any hair when putting it on and let the mask dry for about 25-30 minutes before peeling it off. I am beginning to consider myself somewhat of a mask connoisseur, and this mask does not disappoint! I found my mask at T.J. Maxx for $6.99, however you can also find it here for $11.75.

These products are no doubt my favorites of the month and I would definitely recommend trying them out! Treat yourself for the lowest of prices this holiday season.
