Favourites on my table

We are racing through November so quickly! Sparkly festive decorations are already everywhere and Oscar loves staring at them from the library windows. Winter supplies are
 already in stores - just in case we are subjected to a snow storm any day now. Here is a small compilation of things I've been loving lately, along with Oscar cuddles and cosy evenings.
Marks and Spencers' Rhubarb and Flowers room spray - This smells heavenly, just like childhood sweets and desserts! It's so sunny and fruity and was a bargain at £4, as well as being cruelty free. They also have candle versions and other scents to choose from! As with all M&S products it's great quality and the scent lasts for ages. A pinch of spring gardens on my table.

The Victorian City, by Judith Flander - I've had this book for a while but only just got round to reading it! It's an informative guide that explores life in Dickens' London, from the events that made the people, to the sights and smells and it references some characters and scenes that are identifiable from his works! I love learning how people lived and what society was like, what kind of lives people were used to, even though it would be very different to life in the country. I would really love to read 'The Victorian House' next, it's definitely on my wishlist!
New Look furry tablet case - I know, it might be bad that I have ended up with another in such a short space of time... I walked away so many times in the shop but I just couldn't leave it! This was £12.99 like my other; the pink fluffy fur is so adorable and perfect for having cosy tablet time in front of the fire in the evening. At least if a cat eats my other one I have this in reserve...
Maybelline Baby Lips Christmas edition in Sweet Apple - I am such a fan of Babylips balms, especially for the winter. Maybelline, seeming to know of this too, have brought out a special holidays collection, complete with little mittens and earmuffs on packaging! I have seen only two shades in the range: sugar cookie (a hot pink shade) and sweet apple (above) but from looking online there are also varieties such as hot cocoa and mint candy. The colour is very noticeable on application, is not quite as flavoured as it promises but the scent is divine. It lasts for ages and is deeply conditioning. It is so perfect for the holidays!

What are you loving this time of year? I'm trying to avoid the Christmas trees until December truly hits us, but the lights look so beautiful in the gloomy afternoons!

  5. I definitely agree with you -- I've been trying to hold off on anything Christmas-related until December hits, but I can't help but get a head start on my Christmas wishlist :)
    It's always this time of year that I'm really into thick, warm socks and scented candles, which I know is really basic but I can't help it, ha ha!
    Hope you're staying warm :)

  12. Just like you I love learning about how people lived in 19th century England, and the Victorian House seems like such an interesting book! Thanks for the discovery, it'll be in my next Amazon purchase :D
    Also, this tablet case is the cutest! Definitely appropriate for the winter as it's all fluffy!
