My August


 

My August has been a bit everywhere. From starting a new job, to detoxing, I've been a busy busy gal. But it all got the better of me in the end. I was doing so so well with my detox but it didn't go all to plan. I'll be blogging about it soon, so I won't go into too much detail. Long story short, my routine got too hectic and I didn't do well keeping up with the exercise and eating well part of the detox, but results are still visible from the solid first two weeks!
My new job has been a positive turn! I'm happy there, and though it has been stressful, it's been that good stressful if you know what I mean? Where it feels worth it. I don't realise it though until I go to bed when I realise I'm totally knackered! But all in all, I've been very much enjoying my job and being a happy Cat!
I've been enjoying seeing my friends a lot too. I've had 'Tuesday Club' with the girlies, a leaving meal with my work friends and a picnic to celebrate a friend too. It's been a very busy month with life, but it's all new things that I'm just getting used to! I'm pretty happy right now, but I'd like to get back on track with my blogging cause I've missed that muchos! :)
Also - I did the #icebucketchallenge and donated £5 to the MND Association! I nominate you reading this to do it too, and donate by texting ICED55 £?? to 70070. It's all for a great cause and this Ice Bucket Challenge has raised so much money and awareness for something people knew nothing about. It's a cause close to my heart, so I've really been on board with the challenge, and I think everyone should too! Not only is it fun to watch, but it's somewhat fun to do too! ♥

Next month holds 2 weeks holiday which includes #bloggersfestival, Barcelona and Cadbury Land. I've got a couple of other adventure ideas, but I think that sounds pretty exciting alone! I can't wait for the coming month! Have you got anything fun planned?

What Cat Wore: Outfit Repeater

Dress * - Glamorous
Shoes - Primark
Headband - Primark
Necklace * - M&S (just seen)

YES. I am an outfit repeater - but who isn't!? And who says you can't blog the same dress twice? Clothes were made for wearing, and styling over and over again, and I like challenging myself to wear things differently - It's what styling is about! I do it often with other pieces, but a dress is a little bit harder to style differently. I ditched the cardigan this time, went for different shoes and a floral headband to girly up my attire. This is one of my favourite dresses in my wardrobe right now, and has been since it made it's way into my wardrobe early spring... I think the colours suit the winter a little better though, so I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing this a lot more often this coming season.
Outfit repeating isn't a fashion offence - it's embracing the love for certain pieces.... Even Kate Middleton is guilty of it, but so what!? If royalty can do it, so can we!

On a tangent now... I need help! I'm really on the fence about dying my hair back to a rich dark brown colour. Shall I go dark for the winter or embrace red longer!? If I do go dark, I'm contemplating a lilac dip dye along with it...!

Wishist #68



The colours are getting autumnal now and I'm really inspired by them this year. Normally I'm not and sulking over the bright colours going away but this year is different. I'm really drawn towards pastel pink again, and the burgundies. And a hint of white to brighten up a a lovely, dark, autumnal outfit... and those light grey boots... Ah, they're just amazing! I'm really lusting over those grey boots the most... And after that I think I want the cardigan, trainer heels and I'm torn between the jacket and the cape for my number 4 spot. I need to invest in some staple pieces like those boots, jackets and breton stipes pronto and get rid of the things I never wear or aren't very versatile. It's so hard to clear out a wardrobe...  You never know when any of that stuff is coming back! #fashionbloggerproblems
