I didn't manage a favourites last month as I was a bit underwhelmed with a lot of new things I had tried and simultaneously overwhelmed with uni stuff. I decided that instead of forcing myself to find things I would hang back and combine October and November to make a Wintery Favourites of stuff I have actually really loved.

In Lush, a few weeks back, I was cornered by a member of staff who rather gave me the hard sell on their new 'Teeth' range. Sadly, as I am an awkward person, I would rather buy something I didn't intend to than say "Thanks but no thanks". Thus, I am now the owner of Ultrablast! BUT I actually really like it! It is a tooth powder, designed to take the place of toothpaste and does a brilliant job. I use it about once a week for a really deep clean. Interestingly, it's Wasabi flavoured. Although a little weird actually quite nice and very subtle. For the slightly less adventurous their are also other, more usual, flavours like Tooth Fairy and I would really recommend the range as they're great or even just for curiosities sake!

Pixi Glow Tonic Blogger Review
Pixi Glow Tonic.

My skincare hasn't really changed too much recently apart from these two great products. I won't write too much about Pixi Glow Tonic as it has been reviewed more times than their are stars, but I will say that it really does live up to the hype. If you have congested or problem skin I would really recommend it. It is also now sold in Marks and Spencer making it infinitely more easy to get hold of! The other product I have been using is from Eau Thermal Avene and it's their Cleanance Expert for acne prone skin. I have been using it as a moisturiser and it has really helped balance my skin a bit more and keep it less oily but still hydrated and soft.

This month I wrote a "What I have been Reading Lately" post and The First Bad Man by Miranda July was featured. I really enjoyed this book, it is funny and insightful but also a little dark. I wouldn't say it's a book for the fainthearted but if you are looking for something (very) interesting, unusual and a bit of a challenge, this could be the book for you.

Divers by Joanna Newsom came out about a month ago and it instantly became the soundtrack for my life. I have it on repeat since it came out and have yet to get even slightly bored with it. As I am still not bored of Have One On Me, her last album released in 2010, I doubt I ever will. Her music is slightly divisive and I won't even attempt to sum it up here, I will just say go and decide for yourself and check out the beautiful video for Divers, the titular track, here.

Have you got any Winter Favourites?

Let me know!
