November Faves…


Hello fellow bloggers/Blog readers,

I wonder… what did I love in November?…

It’s time for my November favourites, I’ve never done a blog post about the things I have been loving each month and I think its about time I jumped on that train and joined in. I hope you can be inspired to think about the things you have been loving in this chilly November.

To start off I would love to say a word or two about Benefit’s Porefessional. This might be a bit TMI but I have very open pores that can easily be clogged and this pore filler really helps keep my pores clean and empty. This primer lets my foundation glide smoothly over my skin with no lumps or bumps.I tap this onto my ‘problem areas’ before I apply my second primer and foundation. I would really recommend this if you have easily clogged pores.


My next favourite is the ‘Zoella Lifestyle On My Travels bag’. Now I am not just saying this because I am a crazy fan but because the bag is genuinely what I have been looking for, for quite a while now. Anyway, the bag comes with a gorgeous travel mug, a keyring and some adorable pencils. I use this bag for shopping, travelling and anything under the sun. In my opinion it is like Mary Poppins’ bag as there is never-ending space inside! It is a great bag for anyone who needs to carry a lot of things with them.


Last month I also loved my MAC lipstick in the shade ‘cosmo’, which I believe is an amplified creme (the texture). As described in the formula it is very creamy and moisturising. It is a pretty nude shade with hints of pink running through it. this has been my go to lipstick throughout November as it goes with pretty much anything.

My next favourite is my new laptop, I won’t say too much but I did get my dream present for my 14th birthday. I was very luck to have received a macbook air, this is not only amazing for me but it also means there will many more blog posts than before, so happy reading!

Another thing I have been loving is Benefit’s Roller Lash (I know another Benefit product…). I have very short, stubby and practically non- existent eyelashes that never hold a curl. I find that this mascara lifts my lashes beautifully and holds the curl all day, as well as this it really lengthens them and when I say really, I mean REALLY. (The picture is of the sample size version – I got it in a birthday pressie with a bunch of of other things.)


My final favourite isn’t actually a physical thing, I have just been loving writing! It is something i have really loved doing and for me is quite therapeutic as I can indulge myself in what I love and get lost in a story or piece of descriptive writing. I know that english and writing isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but, even if it’s no through writing, you should spend some time to do what you love.


What have you been loving? I would love to know! Tell me in the comments…

Never Stop Wondering…

Rose Gold Crazes…

Amelia O'Toole, Rose Gold Crazes

Hello fellow bloggers/blog readers,

I wonder…why do I love rose gold things?…

As some of you may know I have a dangerous obsession with rose gold things, and so does my mum. So for special occasions like birthdays and Christmas one of us will hope for some kind of rose gold coloured item (they’re not really gold by the way, we’re not millionaires!). I did a little run around of our house and tried to see how many rose gold things we have collected, here are some of them…

  • Clock,
  • Storage,
  • Headphones,
  • Lids of various things,
  • Make up bag,
  • Ornaments,
  • Bag,
  • Buckles,
  • Bath fizzers,
  • T-shirts,

Layla Headphones, Rose gold headphones

I could go on but I don’t want to bore you, now this blog post wasn’t actually to go on about rose gold things it was actually to rave about certain items. The first being the headphones, I got these as my main birthday present from my parents and they are literally the best headphones ever, some people would argue that beats headphones are better but I love the FRENDS Layla headphones. I was very lucky to get these for my 13th birthday present. They have a high quality microphone so that you can record audio for YouTube videos, you can start and stop videos and music, you can also turn the volume up and down and they are super comfortable and don’t irritate your ears whilst wearing earrings. They also fold up and into a pouch so that they are protected when in your bag or travelling. They are made out of white leather and the rose gold is a beautiful addition to the white. I would recommend these and if you do buy them then take care of them because they are expensive and you want them to last you a long time.

Amelia O'Toole, Rose Gold Vanity Case, Zoella, Rose gold headphones, Rose gold

The next item I would like to write about is the Zoella Rose Gold Vanity Case, this is amazing as it fits all your make up you will need for travelling in really well and often still have more room depending on how much make up you are taking. Being only 13 I do not own as much make up as an adult, meaning that I can squeeze in my favourite make up and my skin care products into just one bag. The bag is waterproof so spillages are easy to clear up, and the design of the bag is excellent as the shape is great for fitting lots of products in. It has a handle so if you need to you can just carry it around but I mainly find it useful if I need to take the bag into another room. This bag is/was unfortunately limited edition for a Christmas special but you never know Zoella might bring it back out again.

Amelia O'Toole, Zoella, Rose gold, bath bombinis

The last thing I would recommend are the Zoella Bath Bombinis, the actual Bombinis are not actually rose gold but the packaging is. (I like to keep the packaging for cute and crafty DIYs as it is a great colour and you might not find the colour and material anywhere else). When you take the wrapper off you have a beautiful ball of Zoella goodness to put into your bath and watch it fizz away. The bath Bombinis do not give off any colour but when you get in you can really feel all of the oils working and when you get out you feel sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo soft and it is amazing. Again these were limited edition with the make up bag but the bath fizzers are just like them. They come in a little glass jar with a cute lid and once you have used them up you could use it to store something else- I personally think that sweets would look very cute in there. These smell amazing and the scent is the same as the original collection and that scent is very floral and cosy. I am rubbish at describing scents though so just go and sniff it for yourself to see whether you like it or not.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling about three fantastic rose gold things, why not see what you can spot in this delicious colour next time you are in the shops.

Also if you were wondering about the fairy lights I use in my pictures then they are from New Look and they are only £8.99 (I have linked the copper ones from New Look because I thought it was only fitting since this blog post was all about rose gold things)!

You can NEVER have enough rose gold stuff!

Never stop wondering…
