Since I started doing this kind of post, I’ve noticed the months are going by very quickly. Here we are at the end of November about to go into December and I’m so excited for Christmas but wish time would slow down a little. November is one of my favourite months. Here in the UK we have Bonfire night before the countdown to Christmas begins, hence a lot of festive related photos in this post.
November is when I start throwing all my money at coffee shops in exchange for all the Christmas drinks. Costa Coffee have a new a new Billionaire’s Hot Chocolate which is delicious but my all time favourites are Starbucks Eggnog Latte and Toffee Nut Latte.
There was a magical display of animal lanterns in the empty units over in the Albert Dock. They were really fun and I was lucky enough to see them on their last day of being displayed.
On Bonfire night Tom and I headed down to the River of Light festival, which is a firework display over the river Mersey. We also had some sparklers because what’s Bonfire night without them?
November has gotten significantly colder and you can definitely tell. Weather in the UK is so weird because during Autumn it’s a mixture of being too hot then all of a sudden you’re freezing! But at least you get pretty photos when it’s all frosty.
Earlier this month Liverpool had their Christmas light switch on. As much as I love Christmas, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the lights get switched on. This year I’ve been so excited for all the lights and decorations so we popped along to see them, but not before a Wagamamas. Priorities.
We’re quite lucky in Liverpool as we have a few Christmas trees around the city centre. There’s this colourful heart tree in Liverpool One, another tree close to John Lewis with a reindeer next to it and one situated on Church street which I’m yet to see this year. But it’s safe to say, Liverpool is definitely in the festive spirit.
You may have seen everyone on social media talking about the Yorkshire Pudding Wrap in recent months and if you haven’t then where have you been?! Luckily they have a stall at the Christmas Markets in Liverpool and I made it my mission to get one, even battling through wind, hail and rain. Dedication at its finest. The wrap was amazing, as expected. It smelt like Christmas dinner waiting in the queue, which was heavenly. If you can get your hands on one I would highly recommend it.
It’s been a very Christmassy kind of November for me, as you can see. What have you been up to this month?
On a final note, I am attempting Blogmas this year. I have some posts planned for it but we’ll see how far I get so be sure to keep up to date with my posts and follow me on Twitter where I will be tweeting about them daily.
