Yes, I’m back from Stars Hollow.
I was there from Friday to Monday, and then again yesterday and today.
Which, for everyone who’s not inside my head, means that Friday through Monday I watched an episode of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life a day, and then watched them again over the past two days.
Yes, I needed to watch it all again right away. And that’s because I needed to understand how I felt about it – which I still don’t really know.
The only thing I know for sure is that now it really feels like I’m back from a trip – a much-anticipated one. A trip I didn’t want to end, and, now it’s over, I’m a little sad, but at the same time glad I had the opportunity to go.
You know the feeling, right?
Anyways, I don’t really want to discuss this any further, in case there’s someone out there who still hasn’t watched it, but intends to at some point… And you’re probably just here for my monthly favorites anyway, so let’s jump right into them, shall we?
This month I’ve tried sooo many new things I love – it was such a great month in that respect. But honestly, if you’re a regular reader, you’ll probably have already heard me blab about pretty much everything over the past few weeks, so let me just do a quick roundup.
Some of you will probably remember that I kicked off the month of November with my #LipstickWeek, where I talked about three different lip products that all managed to knock my socks off. If I were forced to only pick one out of the three, I think I’d go with the Clinique Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer in 06 Rose Pop (I did call it THE lipstick of the year, after all), but the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet in 507 Garçonne and the Diego Dalla Palma Geisha Liquid Lipstick in 04 Kyoto Nights are also pretty amazing, so I think they deserve a mention here, too.
You may also remember that a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to spend a few days in Madrid, and while I was there I picked up the Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne, which, with its clean, salty notes, has easily become my all-time favorite fragrance.
Another “souvenir” I brought back from that trip is the breathtakingly beautiful Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder Eye Palette (courtesy of Mr. Page), one of my top three palettes of the month. The other two are the incredibly warm-toned Zoeva Caramel Melange and the unusually cool-toned Chanel Architectonic – completely different shades and price point, same level of beauty and quality.
So, that’s pretty much it – November’s over and Christmas is just around the corner.
Are you in the spirit yet?
Personally, I may still not have bought a single present, but I already know which eyeshadow I’m going to wear: the appropriately glistening WYCON Caviar Touch in 03 Gold Pearl.
Like my friend Anne would say: “#priorities”. 😉
