November Favourites

Commence, the weirdest favourites post I'll probably ever do. My annual cold and flu arrived this month, (woo!) and I've been coughing my guts up, aching like an elderly, had car alarms going off in my head and just generally feeling run down and unwell, wow, I love the cold weather. 
A hot water bottle has been my best friend the past week, as well as cough medicine and pain killers, but I couldn't find a nice way to present a bottle of medicine and ibuprofen in a blog picture...

However, I've been living in my pyjamas, I can't remember the last time I got up and dressed, and these Alice In Wonderland pyjamas so happen to be my newest (and favourite) pair I own. I find a lot of joy in new pyjamas.
Whilst lying in bed wrapped up, I've been having to apply layer after layer of lip balm, my current balm of choice is the 'Born Lippy' from The Body Shop, it smells and tastes like Watermelon and it's super hydrating and long lasting, so what's not to like? If my lips feel extra chapped I go in with some Bubblegum Lip Scrub from Lush, Not only have I been putting this on my lips, but I've been eating it, because mm. This is such a great exfoliant that it removes dead skin from your lips and leaves them smooth again.
If painkillers just aren't enough to tackle my booming migraines, I apply some 4head stick, which my mam just picked up for me in Asda. I didn't think it would do anything but this stuff genuinely works, it's like a giant lip balm that you rub on your forehead, it instantly cools and soothes your strain.
I obviously haven't been sitting putting make-up on everyday to lie in bed, but just to make myself feel a little better and look a little fresher, I've been loving my NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturiser again, I usually mix this with light coverage foundations but it's just been a nice, easy and quick step in the morning that makes me look a little less ill.

Let me know what you've been loving, or if you also like any of the products I've mentioned...also let me know if you're also cold ridden.
