These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things: November 2015

Dancing in the Moonlight by Toploader: How have I never heard this song before this month? It's so catchy and fun to sing along to!

Murad Pore Reform Skin Smoothing Polish: This is one of my favorite recent purchases, definitely expect a full review on it later in December!

Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray: I've only been using this for a few weeks, but I'm seriously in love with it. It's super lightweight and holds my straight hair in place all day long.

Archipelago Coconut Hand Crème: This smells amazing and is super nourishing, which is awesome because my hands have been super dry due to the changing weather lately.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette: I've been into wearing less and less face makeup as the year has continued and same goes for my eye makeup.

Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Hot Chocolate Mix: It's that time of year again, and I can't get enough of this. There's something very satisfying about a cup of hot chocolate at the end of the day.

Secret Paris: Color Your Way to Calm: This has been extremely relaxing to do before bed and something I genuinely look forward to at the end of each day.

My friend Liza and I rented a Zipcar one Saturday this month and headed to the Cape, because we had both never been! Check out my full outfit post and more about what we did here.

Outfit: Cape Cod Day

My best friend Liza and I decided to take a day trip to Cape Cod because neither of us had ever been. I know, I know, I've lived in Boston for 2.5 years and had yet to have gone to the Cape before this past Saturday, but now I can at least check it off my list of places I want to visit!

We had fun taking pictures on the beach in Hyannis and shopping on Main Street, and of course stopping to get something to eat. We tried out Beech Tree Cantina which was so good! The Pork Tacos and Chicken Tostadas were the perfect lunch before we headed to Chatham for more exploring.

Sephora Sale Picks

If you're a VIB Rouge member, than you were lucky enough to have already shopped the sale, but if you're just a VIB, your time is coming. Starting tomorrow, VIB's will receive 20% off through November 16th with the code VIB20 online and in stores.

I think you can make best use of the sale by purchasing holiday gifts for friends and family, and essentials for yourself- such as your favorite moisturizer and perfume.
