November Favorites

Do you hear the bells jingling? Because I do! And that means that Christmas season is here and November has bid us goodbye! Here's another roundup of the things I've been loving this past month.

Starting off with skin care, I have been using the Michael Todd Soniclear Elite this past month and it has been a game changer. This has replaced my konjac sponge as a facial scrub, and I love how this deep cleanses and exfoliates my skin at the same time! I use it every other night because it can be a bit too abrasive for everyday use. It leaves my skin extremely smooth, which is crazy, so I highly recommend it! If you have a friend or a family member who loves skincare, this would be a perfect gift for them! :) Thank you Michael Todd for sending this gift to me! #michaeltoddbeauty

IT Cosmetics doesn't only create great makeup products, they also have really good skin care stuff! The lip balm I've been using for my lips the entire month of November is the Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment. It does a great job at moisturizing my lips, and it's supposed to react to the warmth of your lips. I don't notice it adding any color to my lips, but I really love how moisturizing it is! Their Bye Bye Lines Serum smells so good, and it makes my skin feel very soft and plump. I haven't noticed a significant difference with my fine lines, because honestly, I don't have those yet, but I really enjoyed using it as a moisturizer!

Jergens Wet Moisturizer

My body has been loving the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer! These smell so good, and they leave my skin extremely soft and hydrated! To learn more about this moisturizer, see this post.

Last but definitely not least on skincare is the blackhead remover I got from Memebox. I can't find it on the website but here's a link to a similar product! I love using this to purge my nose pores of dirt and grossness! It is a little more painful than using my fingers, but it's better because it's actually meant to remove blackheads!


Really love the Kathleenlights x Morphe eyeshadow palette! So proud of Kathleen for her accomplishments, and this is definitely one of my faves from everything she's created! Morphe shadows are very pigmented and easy to blend, and the colors Kathleen picked out for this palette are just so her, and so me! This palette is sold out right now, but they are bringing it back before Christmas if I'm not mistaken, so if you want to get this palette, be sure to follow Morphe on Instagram for updates! This retails for only $14.99. Use code "kathleenlights" for 10% off!

Finally, a mascara that I love as much as the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara! Maybelline sent me the largest PR package ever and inside the box were two Volum' Express The Colossal Big Shot mascaras and a bunch of stickers and "BOSS" rings. This mascara gives mad volume, length and it holds a curl! It's so easy to use, and I've had a few people ask me what I'm wearing on my lashes when I used this. This is also a perfect stocking stuffer so get to shopping now! Your friend who's a makeup addict will love this!

After trying out a few lippies from ColourPop's Persuede Me collection, the shade I ended up loving the most was Ziggie! It is in the Matte X formula, which is my favorite Lippie Stix formula, and the shade is just gorgeous! It's the perfect everyday dark terracotta!

My Justfab bucket bag that has been carrying all my stuff, including my laptop in style, my Manfrotto mini tripod that has made vlogging so much easier, and one of the "BOSS" rings Maybelline sent me.

The portrait mode of the iPhone 7 plus! I am so excited to upgrade this month! I've been wanting this feature for awhile now! 

This Hillsong Young and Free song, and of course, the Tuber Simulator game by Pewdiepie.

Those were all the things I have been loving in the month of November! In case you didn't already know, I created a HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE page for you guys to shop on if you are still doing last minute shopping for your friends and family! :)

Jorge and I might go to NYC for his birthday and I'm soooo excited! I have to get to planning! Is Christmas your favorite holiday too? What are some of your holiday plans? Are you guys doing an out-of-town trip as well? Where are you going? 

Happy holidays! 🎄
