Cheeky Checklist: November 2013

The very first post I ever wrote on Getting Cheeky was my inaugural Cheeky Checklist. Almost three years later, I feel a sense of nostalgia whenever I begin writing this monthly series that essentially amounts to a favorites post that I choose to pen mid month rather than at the beginning or end so as to avoid the deluge of favorites written around that time.

I always write my Cheeky Checklist post on the 13th of the month, so I simply couldn't let the day slip by without making some mention of my favorites. Unfortunately I've been far too busy during the dwindling daylight hours to take a photograph of the few standout items I've loved this month ... more for December I suppose! Both despite and due to the amount of time I've been putting in at work there are several items (only loosely related to beauty) that I have been unable to live without this month. 

Mass amounts of water and Earl Grey tea.

Serums, moisturizers, eye creams and concealers that help me look "well rested" (even if I'm not).

Chic nail polish (particularly Marc Jacobs Fluorescent Beige) that makes me feel put together.

Bright lipsticks to give me the little boost I need (YSL Glossy Stains have been a recent rediscovery).

Beauty sleep. 

What items are on your Cheeky Checklist this month? Do you have a list of items to turn to when your work load and stress level both seem unmanageable?
