November 2013 [Non-Beauty] Favorites

TV Show: The Voice
Hands down, best singing competition show on TV. XFactor, American Idol, and whatever other shows are out there don't even hold a candle to this one. I've also downloaded over 30 songs from the show that are available on iTunes... clearly I'm their target audience. My favorite two girls got kicked off already, so now I'm kind of indifferent as to who wins. But every artist that's left is amazing!

Movie: Catching Fire
Holy shit. I knew there was a reason that Catching Fire (the book) was my favorite of the The Hunger Games trilogy. This movie (in my opinion) was 100x better than the first movie, which is hard to imagine. I just could not get enough of it. The movie was 2 and a half hours long and I never once thought 'when is this going to end'. If you haven't seen this one yet, go see it immediately. 
 
Book: The Blindside
So I've seen this movie more times than I can count, but I broke one of my cardinal rules and hadn't read the book when I saw it (although to be fair, I didn't really know there was a book). I'm in the middle of it right now and I'm absolutely loving the written side of the story.

Sweet Food / Savory Food: 3-flavor popcorn tin
This is a two-in-one answer because the three flavors are both sweet and savory. I get the original one: butter, cheese, and caramel. I look for these every single year around the holidays, and I have only been able to find the original ones at Kroger. Target sells ones with chocolate-flavored popcorn... not into that.

Starbucks Drink: Gingerbread Latte
GBL > PSL, all day every day. Nothing can convince me otherwise. I'm bummed PSL gets a longer reign on the Starbucks menu each year.

Candle: Spiced Apple Toddy
We are diving into the Christmas-scented candles, and this is one of my favorites. It's described as: "Celebrate with friends and enjoy this winter cocktail made from warming apple brandy, spiced plum and tart cranberry". Yum!
 
Song: 'Sweater Weather' - The Neighbourhood
How perfect is this song for the month of November? But also it's amazing (and I had to give you a song that wasn't a cover by an artist from The Voice, right?). 

 

iPhone app: Pocket
So how often are you scrolling through Twitter and you see a link that you 'favorite' so that you can go back and read it later, but then you forget about it? It literally happens to me all the time. This app called Pocket fixes that problem: you click on the tweet and send it to 'read later', and it sends it to the pocket app so you have a list of every article, video, picture, or link you wanted to look at later. I've been using it a ton recently and I'm a huge fan.
 
People: Derik & Tiffany
So in honor of a very special occasion, my favorite person of the month is now my favorite people. Derik & Tiffany were two of my first friends in Alabama, & I love them like younger siblings. So the proud big sister is so happy to say that these two lovebirds got engaged over the Thanksgiving holiday! I couldn't be more excited for them (or to fly down to Alabama for the wedding). Congratulations to one of the greatest couples out there, love you both.
