How are we at the end of November already? It feels like all year I’ve been waiting for the end of November. As it means it’s finally time to go to New York! Yes this time next week I’ll be waking up in NYC!
Excited doesn’t even cover it! I am beyond excited and I have so much planned for the 5 days that I’m away!
My parents are already sick of me talking about it so before I bore you too my November Favourites.
Rules of Civility – Amor Towes
Rules of Civility is one of my favourite books. Maybe its because it’s based in 1930’s New York or if its the main character Kate Kontent. I just love the way it’s written, it reads like a classic novel. It tells a story of New York but also of a 20 something woman doing things her own way, loosing & making friends and being independent.
The New Garconne – How To be a Modern Gentlewoman. – Navaz Batliwalla
This week I’ve been reading How to be a Modern Gentlewoman and I’m really liking it. All about how to style your modern gentlewoman it’s defiantly a great read! Channelling everyone from Coco Chanel to Jane Birkin How to Be a Gentlewoman shows you the how to’s and wear to buy the best pieces in your wardrobe.
I have loved reading about the woman featured in the book from fashion designer Bella Freud to MiH CCO Chloe Lonsdale. How they have curated their styles and their homes! This is a great Christmas Gift Too!
Borrowed from Lane7_ Instagram
At the beginning of the month a couple of friends and I were invited to attend the preview nights of Lane 7 Bowling here in Aberdeen. Lane 7 is Aberdeen’ s new boutique bowling alley with 7 lanes, a bar, ping pong and arcades! We had so much fun as we hadn’t been bowling in years although I’m a terrible bowler… I lost terribly!
Lane 7 is the perfect date night/ girls night out spot for everyone! If you’re looking for something fun to do in aberdeen head to Lane 7 for a night of bowling!
Johanna’s Magical Jungle
Yes I will put my hands up and admit that I’m 21 & I love to colour! I have been loving sitting down with Johanna’s Magical Jungle colouring book to relax at night. Its the perfect way to unwind after a long day.
After finishing Gilmore Girls I wanted a short series to binge watch, enter Sherlock. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as the famous Sherlock & Dr Watson. Sherlock is great and has just the right amount of comedic moments to make it less of a cop/detective drama. Hopefully Netflix gets season 4 soon so I can carry on binge watching!
This month I’ve been watching Gary Vaynerchuck’s videos on Youtube & I can’t get enough. Gary Vee is a fantastic motivational speaker & I find watching one of his videos each morning motivates you for the day ahead!
