Ins and Outs for November

I can't believe November's already over and tomorrow will be December!  So what better time to talk about the Ins and Outs of November for me.

Ins
X Factor!  Am loving it this year and don't know what we're all going to do on a Saturday night when it's over.  I hope Matt wins but would be happy if Rebecca won too.  Not mad on One Direction, I keep thinking the kid with the curly hair looks like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall so I keep thinking of River Cottage when I see him hehe

Snow!  Having lived in Canada for a few years, I was used to snow, but I must say, there's nothing like snow on home ground :)  Seeing all the places you know blanketed in the white stuff is lovely.  But I think Bailey loved the snow even more than me :)  Bouncing around like a lunatic and then coming in with snowballs in his beard hehe

Christmassy nails!  Am in love with my new Christmas China Glaze nail varnishes but can't really wear them because my nails are in bits.  So have started doing Operation Fix My Nails which consists of just applying a nail strengthener and no other nail varnishes, just to see how I get on.

My new haircut!  I got my hair cut earlier in the month after being told by my friend Ruth (Hi Ruth, we must do hot chocolate soon!) about a place called Cheng salon beside The Olympia on Dame Street.  I wasn't sure right after the haircut but now I'm delira with it and have a baby pony tail when I tie it up :)

Reading!  I just finished Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes, lent to me by Andrea from work :)  I loved it and have just found out this minute after googling it to check my spelling that they're making a movie about it and Catherine Zeta Jones is going to play Rachel.  I'm not sure how I feel about that hehe I just hope they keep the characters Irish as in the book, that's all, oh, and with good Irish accents :)

Outs
Slush!  Holy Moses I hate slush.  My poor Uggs are destroyed from all the puddles of slush that have appeared from the snow melting.  And it's bloody slippy, my legs are sore this evening from clenching them trying not to fall going to work and back :)

Bad skin!  My poor face has erupted the past couple of days with little spots on the tops of my cheeks.  I usually have clear enough skin and I haven't changed my skincare routine so I'm guessing it's the freezing weather and central heating at work and at home that are the culprits.  I'm going to have a look in the shops this weekend, weather permitting, and if I see anything that I feel might be good, maybe get it for my birthday next month or Christmas.  I think I've spent a good bit on products this month, so am gonna scale back till after Christmas I think.

That's all I can think of this month.  It's been a good month and let's hope next month continues like that :)
