Blogmas 2 – November Favourites and Fails

Hey lovelies welcome to Blogmas day 2! It’s time for my monthly roundup of favourites from November but I’ll be honest, there aren’t many things that I loved last month and a couple of things disappointed me so I thought I’d change it up a bit and do a ‘favourites and fails’ rather than just ‘favourites’.

Beauty Favourite and Fail

√ Wet N Wild 10 Pan Eyeshadow Palette

My most recent beauty review was of this eyeshadow palette so I’m sure a lot of you will have already seen this product and will know how much I loved it! It’s a tiny palette that would be perfect to take travelling or throw in your makeup bag when you’re on the go and I was able to create a beautiful eyeshadow look with it considering it’s just £3.75 on Beauty Bay! I’ll leave my full review here so you can check it out, there were actually a few shades similar to an Anastasia Beverly Hills palette which I included so don’t miss out on that!

⊗ Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation

I also reviewed this foundation on my blog and I was so excited to test it out because I’d heard amazing things about it but it was so disappointing! The applicator was so difficult to work with and the product had a really strong smell that I hated so although the foundation actually looked quite good on I doubt I’ll be using it very often in the future! My review is here if you want to know more about it!

Film/TV Favourite and Fail

√ The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

I’d been really excited to see The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, obviously with it being a Disney film and the fact I used to dance ballet myself I thought it was a no brainer that I’d love it. Then I saw some terrible reviews of it and I was left disappointed that it wasn’t going to be all I thought it would, but those reviews were wrong!

I enjoyed this film so much, it’s the perfect Christmas family film and the ballet parts in it just made it even better in my eyes. I’ll definitely be purchasing it on DVD when it comes out and I’ll be watching it every Christmas for the foreseeable future!

⊗ The Sinner Season 2

The Sinner, a TV series I first saw on Netflix was one of my favourite TV seasons that me and my Fiancé have watched together! We binged watched the whole first season within 2 days and I was forever telling people about it when they asked for Netflix recommendations because it was amazing. When I saw they were releasing a second season I was SO happy but I was completely underwhelmed with the new series!

In my opinion season 2 is nowhere near as good as season 1. Don’t get me wrong we still watched it until the end but I just didn’t connect with the storyline as much, it wasn’t as gripping and I was really disappointed with it overall!

General Favourites

Disney Day Out

At the beginning of November I met up with two of my favourite Disney friends, Lize from Lize in Disneyland and Courtney who I actually went to school with but we lost touch over the years. We spent the day in Birmingham visiting our local Disney store, browsing different shops for other Disney finds and then sat and had a good old catch up. It was so nice to see them both and be and Lize actually planned some exciting content for next year’s blog posts so keep your eyes peeled for that!


German Market

The German Market in Birmingham has now started which means it’s officially Christmas! I love going as it always gets me in the festive spirit, me and my Fiancé have already visited once and hopefully I’ll get chance to go again before Christmas! The best thing about the German Market is obviously the garlic bread it’s gorgeous but I had a Yorkshire Pudding Wrap this time too which was also really good!

That’s it for this post lovelies! Let me know your favourite product or thing you’ve done in November in the comments!
