November Favorites + GIVEAWAY WINNER!

Hi, everyone! In today’s post, I’ll be sharing my November favorites along with announcing my giveaway winner! I was home in the U.S. for the majority of this month, and it was so nice. I was able to spend a lot of quality time with my family and even celebrated my 21st birthday.

I love coming home to my Tiffany blue bedroom and flannel sheets. I am spoiled so much when I come home! My mom does all my laundry, and my sister bakes my very favorite desserts. It is blissful! It is so funny how much more you appreciate the little things after moving away from home. I keep a lot of my beauty products here so I don’t have to pack a lot when traveling back and forth. These are my go-tos that I always look forward to using along with some new products I picked up while in the states!

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum This serum was a part of my Sephora VIB birthday gift! Caudalie is a luxury french brand that I have been wanting to try for awhile . My skin is extremely sensitive, so trying a new skincare or makeup product is always a gamble. Fortunately, my skin loves this! I haven’t been using it long enough to see any dramatic results, but it smells great and is very moisturizing.

Taylor Swift Incredible Things Eau de Parfum   Oh, how I love this perfume! I collect Taylor Swift fragrances, and this one is my favorite. It is very special to me because it is what I was wearing on the day Nicolas and I met. Wearing it brings back so many memories, and I get so many compliments on the scent!

Pearlessence Micellar Cleansing Water with Aloe I bought this on a whim at TJ Maxx because I thought the packaging was so minimalistic and pretty. It doesn’t irritate my skin and leaves me feeling so refreshed. It also looks so nice sitting on my bathroom counter. 🙂

Elemis Balancing Lime Blossom Cleanser This is not pictured because I used up every last drop! I love this cleansing milk. It is gentle enough to use in the morning and evening. I love to use it at night because it does a great job at melting away makeup. I love to take my time massaging it into dry skin and then remove it using a warm washcloth. It feels just like the spa!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that my favorite tea of the month has been the Yogi Blueberry Slim Life Green Tea. I’ve been having a cup of this every morning. I love drinking something I know is good for me! It says it is a great addition to a weight loss plan and balanced diet, but I honestly just drink it because it tastes sooo yummy.

And now for the giveaway winner … I used a random number generator to select one lucky commenter. Congratulations to Stacy Young Thompson! Please email your address to so I can send you your goodies! Thank you so much to everyone who entered. I loved reading what you all are thankful for!

I hope you all have a great week. I am traveling back to Denmark tomorrow and look forward to celebrating my first Danish Christmas. 🙂

    Having a sensitive skin is indeed a gamble. You have to be careful to products that you’ll try. I heard Taylor Swift fragrances are remarkable.

    Ooh, I just love it when the perfumes bring memories. I haven’t found a perfume for me yet, that wouldn’t suffocate me. Body mists are usually a little bit less scented, so I have been using those 🙂 But I didn’t even know that TS has some perfumes! Are they strong?

      I would say that the majority of them are strong – yes. Another brand I like that aren’t as strong are the Clean perfumes. They have so many available and just make you smell fresh! They have a sample set at Sephora. 🙂
