I can’t believe November is almost over! I think I say that every single month. Time flies, especially this time of year. I really hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and is now getting ready for Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate)! This month, there was a transition from fall and Halloween to winter and Christmas, you can see that with all the winter and Christmas stuff that’s on my radar this month.
One // Ghosted by Rosie Walsh
I was expecting to wait six months for this book at the library. It was a pleasant surprise when I got it only two months into the six month wait! I loved this book! I tried listening to it on audio a while ago but didn’t like the narrator. The book was really boring when I was listening to it. I put it down and requested a hard copy from the library instead. Highly recommend!
Two // Face Cream for Very Dry/Winter Skin
In cold weather, my skin just freaks out. No matter how much face cream I use, it will get dry and flaky only a few hours later. I’ve been trying to find a better face cream (also, one that doesn’t have parabens in it) this year. I came across the brand Dermalogica but haven’t made a purchase yet. If anyone has any good recommendations, leave them in the comments below!
Three // Putting Up Christmas Decorations
We put up our tree and some Christmas decorations around the house. For now, I keep things minimal because I hate putting all the things away after Christmas. I’m sure it’ll be different in the future with kids around.
Four // Carmel Christkindlmarkt
The Carmel Christkindlmarkt has been open for a week and Travis and I have already been there three times! It’s mainly because he loves the bratwursts cooked in this big thing:
They also have awesome mulled wine in different flavors, like rosé, red, white, and cranberry. The cranberry is the best! While you’re at it, also try the hot beer. Yes, it’s actually hot and it’s good!
You can also go ice skating, which we haven’t done. It’s usually crowded and cold, but they only let a certain amount of people on the rink, so you don’t have to worry about it being over-crowded while ice skating.
