Month in Pictures: November

Happy December lovelies, I know it's already the middle of the month and only 12 days till Christmas!! But before you completely write off November, here's my Month in Pictures....

Loving: Catching up with old friends, I'm not going to pretend I haven't enjoyed my time 'off work', lots of late night cocktails with no early morning hangovers and many many trips into town for a stroll around the shops followed by a good gossip over hazelnut lattés, and there's nothing like a mid week night out to make you feel young again.

Loathing: I feel bad even saying it, but I'm not looking forward to Christmas this year, I don't have a job and I still haven't received my redundancy paycheck, so right now it's looking like a lean Christmas, and I love buying presents for other people much more than receiving them.  Bah Humbug! :(

Listening to: A few weeks ago I went to a local gig to see a new up and coming folk band; Son of Eagle, they're very Mumford and Sons-esk, which personally I love, but I know it's not to everyone's taste. I thought they were amazing live and I'm definitely going to be downloading their album soon. I've also been listening to some oldies but goodies; Echo and the Bunnymen, Inspiral Carpets and Iron and Wine.

Eating: Some of my friends organised a French food and film night, I love love love French food, bread, cheese, pate; I could eat it all day long, so needless to say I enjoyed myself. I've also got a bit of an addiction to these amazing caramel cheesecakes from Sainsburys, they are To. Die. For.

Buying: I picked up this B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L satchel from New look a few weeks back for the quite reasonable price of £25 English Pounds. It was love at first sight, and it's not left my shoulder since. I've also added a few (more) new rings to my collection, those pictured are from Topshop, Miss Selfridge and JWLRY. I picked the five stone ring mix from JWLRY, which for £10 is a awesome deal, I might even get another set when I've got some money. I also went to a local vintage fair but didn't buy anything due to my serious lack of funds.

Watching: If you follow me on Twitter you'll already know that I'm a shameless Twilight fan and saw Breaking Dawn as part of a 'Twiathlon' held by Showcase Cinema's. Ten hours of Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and lots of unhealthy food - I've had worse days! I finally got around to buying the last series of Gilmore Girls and watched every episode in just two days (that's what happens when you're unemployed) I know it ended years ago, but it's my guilty pleasure and I never saw the final series.

Finally: I'd like to announce the winner of the Define Elephants Jewellery giveaway. The lucky winner is Sophie from The Story of a Girl who lives above her means. Congratulations Sophie, I'll be intouch to get your address details.

Sound like a great month! :) I love French food too! I hope you get your redundancy soon! :)

Love, Vanilla

Looks like you've had a great month - you look really happy in your pics:)

I really hope you get your redundancy payment soon!! Nothing more frustrating than not getting money that is owned to you.

I am not really a fan of Christmas (I know - I am a bad person) so I am right there with you with the bah humbug!

Hi dear, it's good that you are using your free time to do fun things with friends, it's exactly what Christmas is about. I have a craving for some hot chocolate and croissants after reading about your French film & food night! And in reply to your comment yes I have lost weight, although I have no idea how it happened! I'm not going to complain though :) x
