Alternative November Favourites

Wednesday, December 10

After the success of my Alternative February Favourites (nine months ago oops...) I've been meaning to do another one. It is a little late into this month but exams keep trying to take over. I've chosen four of my favourite things from November to share with you. A lot of these things feel like forever ago now though but I hope it is still relevant.

I'm 100% aware that this co-ord from ASOS is a summer item but it appeared in the sale for only £17 and I couldn't say no. It featured in my wishes and wants post back in June (see it here) but as I didn't have the money for it then I've kept my eye on it. Excitingly it will look perfect for our summer holiday and keep my shoulders covered from the harsh sun.

The print is much nicer than it looks on the website and I was so pleased with it. I think they have a few sizes left and you can check them out here

The fireworks!! Don't they look incredible? I knew I couldn't let the opportunity living in the city go to waste - so we down to the beach to see them. Scott came along too on what was one of the first bitterly cold nights of the year. It was a lovely simple night and I'm so glad I went along. You can also see what I wore here.

I am so so so in love with this bag from TK Maxx. I'd been on the hunt for the perfect university bag since September but I was holding out for the perfect one. Luckily I came across this one. It is a lovely colour and a perfect size. I'm still thinking about doing a 'Whats in my University Bag' post - would you like that?

In the mean time I wonder if you have any tip for stopping the straps from wearing  I'm quite hard on it taking it out everyday but I want to keep it good as long as possible. 

After deciding to get a passport in the past few months Scott really upped the pressure about going away next summer. After a lot of thought we decided that Tenerife would be the right place for our first holiday and my first time on a plane since I was 7. I am ridiculously excited now... and slightly nervous. The second picture is Scotts from when he was there in May this year. He has been about 7 times (maybe more) so he knows what he is doing. If anyone has any posts about their holiday there feel free to leave the links.


  1. Ahh I'm so jealous of you going to Tenerife! The company I work for sells tickets to the Waterpark there (Siam Park) and it's meant to be amazing! I went to Tenerife years ago when I was a kid but I can't remember it that much. xx

  2. That handbag has the cutest colour and print :)

    I'm sure you will enjoy Tenerife. I remember last year we arrived at Lanzarote on the 1st of January and it was absolutely awesome!
