Another month is over, and we're only 24 days away from Christmas and I can't wait! November flew by quickly, and I have SO much to look forward to. I'm off on a girls weekend to Clare, I have my school Christmas dinner, 4 days in Amsterdam, and then my glorious 2 week holiday. I cannot wait.
But first, here's what got me through November.
I love a good hat. November has been dreadful in Ireland. Wet, windy and freezing. Often all at once. But it's been a good opportunity to get my hat on and cover my bad hair days in style.
I've been reading a lot about Wonder Woman this month. See my post on her new movie here. I find the history behind her inspirational, and the new movie (in 2017) will be the first female led superhero movie ever made. Thankfully my new love also coincided with Primark getting this excellent bed spread. €18 well spent I think.
Being a total nerd
I've become addicted to subscription boxes over the last year! I love the mystery, the quality (generally) and online shopping. But then I discovered nerdy subscription boxes - LootCrate and NerdBox. Both offer monthly mystery gifts under a general theme with 5-6 products per box. For example, the theme of time gave me Back to the Future, Doctor Who and Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures collectibles. I now have a ridiculous shelf full of all sorts of products to keep my lonely Captain America and Daleks company. But I love it!
I go through phases of creativity and then hit a complete block for a few months. Lately though, I've been super creative. I've created cute Alice in Wonderland print with my favourite pages overlayed with my favourite images. Now I'm trying to find a frame for the work!
Then a re-purposed an old hardback book and turned it into a clock! It took a week of painting, staining with tea and then adding stickers and hands to my clock! I absolutely love how it turned out. It takes pride of place on my book shelf now!
My New Glasses
I can't explain what a huge difference getting my new glasses has made to me. But it's like I can now suddenly see in HD. They're black framed and I really love the style of them.
It's been a month of busyness as I prepare for a hectic December. And I can't wait to have beautiful photos of Amsterdam to accompany my December Favourites post.
