November Favourites

Another month down, bring on December! But first, here’s what I’ve been enjoying during November.

Sarah Andersen Books


I’ve been a fan of her comics since my Tumblr days, and was pleased to find that she’s released two books! I went to library and grabbed both. They’re so easy and fun to read, and of course, very relatable. I was laughing while reading through the books (many times), and I’m debating on buying them so I can flick through them whenever I want!

Pohutukawa Flowers

For us in New Zealand, you can’t have a summer Christmas without these flowers. They’re only native to our little country, and are so beautiful. The flowers are made up of lots of red soft needles. Needles is a weird way to describe it, as they’re ultra soft. They also come in different shapes. Some are circular, while others are more oblong. Either way, they’re literally everywhere, and it’s nice to see so much red and green everywhere. They’re a natural Christmas decoration!

Pamper Nights

I’m still making my way through all the goodies from my Night Time Cozy box. Because of how much goodies there are, I always have something to enjoy. I’ve gotten into the habit of ending the week with a bath and a mask. I’m really enjoying the Blue Lagoon masks at the moment.

Brave Soul Playsuit

My first order from ASOS is this adorable navy blue playsuit from Brave Soul. It’s got embroidered birds along the top half, is super light and perfect for summer! I’ve already managed to wear it a few times, and each time I’ve gotten a compliment on it. That’s obviously not the main reason of it, but I won’t lie, it does give me a little boost to my day 😀

Summer Overalls

Another item of clothing that I’ve loved this month is my new short black overalls! I’ve been keeping an eye out for blue ones, but these ones fell into my lap that I figured I’d get this black pair instead. Now I have a pair for the colder months, and the warmer months! It’s a similar design to my original black overalls, but obviously, it’s shorter. It’s very comfy again, which is very important if I’m going to be wearing them all day.

That’s what I’ve been loving this month! What has been some of your favourites during this month?

Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. Oh my lanta those flowers are stunning! I am obsessed! In the states we poinsettias are really big, but I much prefer the Pohutukawa flower. I love your blue over alls and yay for pamper nights! I hope December is a great month for you beauty! <3

    1. Thank you Kate! I hope you have a great December too! I always love the sight of our pohutukawa flowers. They’re so bright and festive ?

      1. Thanks sweets! They are! I want one now! 🙂 <3

  2. I haven’t been able to find overall shorts in forever. I have my good ole favourite denim, long overalls but not seen any short variations. So happy for you that they just “fell” in your lap :):) I had some gloves just fall into my lap yesterday ;):) The Pohutukawa is beautiful. God is such and amazing Artist :):)

    1. I have a long pair as well, but I wanted a short one for summer. I’m so happy I finally managed to find a pair!
      The pohutukawa is a really amazing sight ?

  3. Ooh that playsuit and those overalls are so pretty on you! And those flowers are gorgeous (: (also, sorry it’s been so long since I came by your blog! I’ve tried to different times recently, but it won’t let me comment anymore from my phone. It can’t take the awesomeness of self-hosted sites anymore, lol. So I’m commenting from my laptop 🙂 )

    1. Thank you so much Maggie! Haha, that’s okay. I’ve had a few people say similar things. It is the only downfall of self hosting ? I appreciate that you took the extra effort to come by! ??

  4. those flowers are gorgeous, so festive! so glad that jumpsuit made it onto your faves, I loved that OOTD post! ?

    1. They really are! I love how unique they look, they’re perfect for Christmas ?
      I’m so in love with the jumpsuit! It’s so cute ??
      Thanks Jamie!

  5. Love your playsuit!!! It’s so pretty xx

    1. Thanks Anni! It’s the first of what I’m sure will be many buys from Asos ?

  6. I live in the States, and the idea of a summer Christmas just totally baffles me! Ha! Those flowers are so quirky and beautiful, though, and your little romper is adorable!

    1. Haha, I always see winter Christmas in movies and tv, but I’ used to a summer Christmas! Thanks Becca! ?

  7. Beautiful collection of favorite things. I am tempted to buy the books now. 🙂
    As Becca said, it is so hard to put summer and November together in my head. Love from the Northern Hemisphere. 🙂

    1. Thank you! You should buy the comic books! They’re so adorable and relatable ?
      Haha, if you’ve never seen or experienced a summer Christmas i could see how it would be hard to wrap your head around! ?

  8. I love Sarah’s comics, too! She always hits the nail on the head. And the playsuit and the overalls look great on you 🙂

    1. She’s definitely the queen of being relatable ?
      Thank you so much Nina! ?

  9. Everyone loves a bit of pamper night, those are my favorite. I would gladly stay at home and have pamper time than go for drinks with friends or go clubbing. xx

    1. Exactly! They’re a great way to unwind and relax. I’ve always been more of an indoors lady myself ?

  10. Great favourites!! Love your playsuit it’s so cute ? xx

    1. Thanks Amelia! I’m so happy with my playsuit 😀

      1. It’s okay ?

  11. It’s cool to have a native flower. It just got me thinking that I don’t recall what my state flower is or which ones are found only in my state. The US is so humongous that I’d rather limit it to state. I’ve been thinking recently that I’d like to study plants more. I love them so much, and yet I know very little.

    1. I think we’ve got a few more native flowers, but this is one of the most well known. You could look at library books about plants! I love going to the library when I want to learn a bit more about something ?

  12. Gorgeous flower!

    1. It really is 😀

  13. That playsuit and the flowers are soooo cute!

    1. I’m glad you like them! Thanks for stopping by 😀
