It’s A Monthly Thing: 10 Reasons We Love November

From the launch of Kenzo x H&M, to Netflix binges and Black Friday, November’s dedicated to shopping, spice lattes and getting our snuggle on in front of Gilmore Girls…


1. Shop Around The Clock

Instead of mourning the end of summer we’ve decided to focus on the positives of the nights drawing in; mainly that it’s time for winter coat shopping. This season it’s all about the shearling coat!

2. Go Potty For Potter

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ J.K. Rowling’s prequel to the Harry Potter series has hit cinemas! If you haven’t seen it yet, get a date in with leading man Eddie Redmayne ASAP.

3. Enjoy That (Black) Friday Feeling

We’re already frantically making wish lists of what we want (nay, need) from all of our fave stores this Black Friday. The shopping frenzy kicks off on 25th November this year so be prepared for plenty of offers.

4. Get Your Skates On

With Christmas nearly here it means only one thing; ice skating. With rinks popping up all over the UK, it’s time to channel your inner Jayne Torvill and start practising those figure skating moves.

5. It’s A Kenzo x H&M Thing

The French fashion house hit the high-street on 3rd November when its collaboration with H&M launched in-store. If you want to snap up a designer piece at a price that doesn’t make your eyes water, get to the shops now!

6. For Your GBBO Withdrawal

It’s official! The 26th November is our favourite day of the year. Why? 3 words… National Cake Day. Enough said.

7. A Netflix Revival

The lovely people over at Neflix have decided to reboot one of our favourite shows, Gilmore Girls. The world’s best mother-and-daughter combo is back on Netflix on 25th November.

8. Get Your Advent On

It’s almost that time of year when we get to eat chocolate for breakfast without feeling any guilt. Whether you like Maltersers, Lindt or love to open up a special beauty advent calendar that treats you to a lippie a day, don’t forget to snap one up before the good ones go!

9. Heart Eyes For Thanksgiving

While we might not celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK, we do get to enjoy all of the delicious perks that come with it, like Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Plus head to London’s Balthazar on the 26th for a special Thanksgiving menu.

10. It’s Showtime

Spend the day shopping, getting beauty treatments and hearing the inside scoop on all the new trends at The Clothes Show at Birmingham’s NEC, from the 2nd December – 6th December. Pink Parcel will be there, alongside betty, which is launching in a VERY big way, with lots of surprises in store.
