My December

December. It's always eventful month for most people and this month has been undoubtedly busy for me! We've all had Christmas, Christmas parties, Christmas shopping, Sale shopping, and after all that we had eating and playing with any Christmas presents we got this year. On top of that I've had my birthday, the Blogger's Xmas event and tonight I've got a lovely evening planned out for mine and John's 5 year anniversary! (Which is actually tomorrow.)
Heck yeah it's been a busy month and I've done a lot, so sit back and let me tell you all about it!

2015 Highlights

The last year has been a good one if I do say so myself. It definitely had it's ups and downs but the ups outweigh them, which is nice to say. There have been a few highlights that stick out in mind for 2015 and I thought it would be fun to look back at my year and share those highlights with you.

2016 Goals

2016 is creeping up fast and this month I've been thinking hard about my goals for the next year. This year I wrote my 2015 goals, and if I'm honest I think I only achieved two of my five life goals and I didn't reach any of my blog goals. That said, I did achieve other things I didn't write down leading me to leave this year feeling like I've achieved a few goals and with a smile on my face!

What Cat Wore | 2015 Round Up

The year is over, and if I'm being totally honest... for a style blogger, I don't think I've posted enough outfits and I've gone wearing some good ones without posting. That said, I think 2016 will be my year. I said that about this year and I've definitely made the most of my year, but I want 2016 to top this one. But my chats about 2016 goals are for another post... Today I want to take a trip down memory lane and share with you my favourite outfits I posted this year. I hope you enjoy, and please don't forget to tell me what one is your favourite in the comments!

What I Got For Christmas

Christmas Day was absolutely amazing ♥ And just like that it was over but it was definitely a Christmas to remember. This year was just perfect because it went so well; Everyone loved their presents, dinner was spot on and there were no hiccups all day. (Apart from accidentally dropping and breaking my phone... Oops!)
Today I thought I would share what I got with you. I love reading these posts myself and seeing what people got and reading any back stories about presents. It's like a haul post really and I'm just nosey really! Hehe! Anyway, I hope you enjoy seeing what I got from my lovely family and boyfriend!

What Cat Wore | Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve everybody! I hope you've all had a wonderful day? I have had a pretty lazy one if I'm honest. I've wrapped up a few of my parent's last minute gifts and helped clear up the house ready for tomorrow blasting Christmas tunes and some old club classics Kisstory style. I popped out for a little bit too, so I thought I would wear my new jeans and boots.

Xmas Gift Guide 2015 | Typical Gifts You Actually Love To Get

When you don't know what to get someone, everyone reverts back to the original and typical Christmas gifts because they're quite easy to get. But then most of us worry whether that person will like it or not, or whether they think it's thoughtful enough when actually, we actually love getting these sorts of gifts because they're not things we would buy ourselves or they are pretty useful in our lives! I personally love getting any of these as a gift whether it be for my birthday or Christmas and I've picked out two favourites from 6 typical gifts to share with you. One for guys and one for girls in case you're stuck on any ideas. I hope it helps!

Haul | Birthday Presents

I am so happy with the things my lovely family and boyfriend got me for my birthday this year. I don't often ask for anything so this little haul of presents I received yesterday speaks volumes on how much they know me! Today I thought I'd share with you what I got and why I love the gifts so much! ♥

What Cat Wore | Twenty Six

Happy Birthday to meeee! Today I am twenty six, and I've had the loveliest birthday. Today I got to see my family all together, see my boyfriend and have a meal out as a family! This was the best present I could have received today, simply because I truly appreciate this precious and uncommon family time ♥ Being my birthday I've developed a little tradition of buying myself a new outfit to wear for the day and today I thought I'd share what I've been wearing all day with you before I pass out from eating so much buffet food... On to the outfit talk....!

Style | Pretty Little Sweater

Pretty Little Liars fans will most definitely be having the theme song playing in their head right now. I'm consistently bursting into PLL theme song when I think about this sweater or about every 10 minutes when I'm wearing it. For those non-PLL lovers you may have already guessed from what you've read that on my sweater here I have the beginning of the Pretty Little Liars theme tune printed. I was so excited when I saw this on the Da Silva website that I had to get it!

Wishlist | Topshop

I miss shopping soooo much! Even just window shopping. I never have the time to so when I walked past Topshop the other day I got pretty excited at some of the beautiful things in there. And because I was in a rush I didn't really get to go in. Instead I ventured online and created myself a little big wishlist of things that I would LOVE from their current collection.

Things I Love About Christmas

source: tumblr

Christmas is simply an amazing time of year. Although the stress is upon us thanks to the high consumerism of it all, it's still a very special day to many of us around the world, and today I thought it would be lovely to share the things I love about Christmas with you!

What Cat Wore | Champagne Glitter

Apologies for my AFK status this week. I had a bunch of blog posts planned until life happened and the dying of my laptop. I don't know if it's repairable damage yet, but it's basically turning on but not starting up if that makes sense. I think after 7 years I have to think of replacing the thing. ANYWAY...
Today off my little sister's laptop I am sharing with you my Christmas Party outfit from Friday night. I am pretty certain this dress has been featured on my blog at least once every year since I bought it (4 years ago I think). This beautiful velvet champagne skater dress with gold glitter polka dots was my first blogger inspired purchase. It was inspired by Lily Melrose and has become one of those staple wardrobe pieces that I don't think I'll ever get rid of or stop loving!

Wishlist | Christmas Decorations

Feather Bauble | Glitter Reindeer | Candle | Mini Twig Tree
Tree Bauble | Fox Bauble | Bauble Set
Owl | Pine Cone Garland | Hedgehog | Marble Bauble
It's about now that people start putting up their decorations! This Sunday me and the boyfriend will be putting up our tree, and we have a little theme that we really love for our tree. I love a themed tree but I also love a really random classic tree! Ours is a mix of both, and that's what makes our tree special to us!
Here are a few of the baubles and Christmas decorations I'm looking at getting this year to update our decorations.

Happy Things #1

Back in November I wrote a post called '10 Things That Make Me Happy Right Now', and I loved writing it so much that I decided I want to write one of these 'happy posts' every month as a series. Not only do I want to write it to remind me of the things that are or were making me happy at that moment, but to hopefully bring a little happy to you too! It's always a good thing to think about those uplifting moments, things or people that make you smile and my aim is to have something to look back on on a dull day to remind me of those things no matter how big or small the happy things may be! I hope you're going to like this monthly series, because I know I sure am!

What Cat Did | #BloggersXmas

Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend the #BloggersXmas event organised by the beautiful girls from Soeur de Luxe! I don't think there's ever been a Christmas blogger event like this before so I was excited to come to this one, and met up with a few bloggers at Liverpool Street Station before heading over to Finch's where the event was held!

Xmas Gift Guide 2015 | For Your Lovely Ladies

Personalised Make-Up Bag | Tatty Devine Necklace - Ruby Slippers | Yankee Candles Votive Gift Set | YSL Lipstick
Cath Kidston Pyjamas | Snuggly Boot Slippers | D&G Fragrance Minis | Nail Polish Set | Pom-Pom Clutch Bag

The ladies in your life. A lot easier to buy for usually because they're more likely to tell you what they like I find! But oddly, I found this wishlist harder to put together, simply because I don't buy for many ladies! I based this on things I personally like to get in general for Christmas and what I think us girlies would like! So I hope this helps anyone stuck and lets get onto why I've picked these things on my wishlist and who they'd be good for!

Xmas Gift Guide 2015 | For The Men In Your Life

Let's just cut to the chase. The men in our lives are always so hard to buy for. For me, I have two brothers who never tell me what they want, a dad who has everything, an uncle that I never know what to buy for and a boyfriend who I always want to impress with the best presents I can find. It's hard to buy for all of these people but I've come up with a little gift guide to not only help me think up some ideas, but I hope will help you!
Read on to find out why I picked these pieces for my gift guide....

My November

November has been quite a long month actually. With all the Christmas excitement building, I always find November to be that super-long month that I can't wait to pass! I haven't been up to much this month, but I have been busy with work, blogging and Christmas shopping! I only have two people left to buy for and I am DONE. Hallelujah! But what to get them...
Read on to recap November with me!

My 5 November Favourites

November has been so busy and I haven't had enough time to really sit and reflect on what I've really loved this month. Two things I have been loving can't be photographed, because one is an app and another a TV show but I've got a couple of things I really have been loving and using lots throughout November and become staples in my winter wardrobe. I hope you like what I've got to share as my favourites today!

Xmas Gift Guide 2015 | Stocking Filler Books

I adore getting books for Christmas! It's probably my favourite things to receive and usually it's the fun books or hyped up books that I'm after each year. There are so many now for so many different things and I've already bought a few books for people this year, because well... They're great for entertainment purposes and keepsakes. You may have noticed my gift guide doesn't really contain any novel style books, and that's because I think they're the sort of books you buy yourself to read. You decide if that blurb catches your interest really and books like the ones I've listed above are either great for the novelty, books you wouldn't buy for yourself or actually quite useful.

What Cat Wore | Evergreen Dream ft. Apricot Clothing

Say hello to my new favourite dress. I've always been a fan of the skater dress. They're so flattering, feminine and they're perfect for any time of year. I wear them quite often to work now too, so when I spotted this knitted beaut on the Apricot website, I knew I had to have it. And out of this dark green, black or burgundy it had to be the green. Being knitted it is super warm and the sleeves are essential in this cold weather. The shape too is amazing sitting perfectly and showing off all the right curves! I really can't get enough of how nice this dress feels on.

What Cat Wore | Coldest Day Ever

Okay. So there's an exaggeration in my title, but no lies it is ICE COLD outside and I cannot stand it. I'm so sensitive to the cold, and taking some blog photos outside as planned didn't happen because I couldn't stay out there long enough to take one shot! I did manage to take a few of my photos inside that I'm happy with, but I really wanted to get some nicer outside ones due to inside lighting issues but hey... Winter is a killer for bloggers isn't it?
Today I'm sharing with you what I've been wearing today. I've been layering up for what feels like the coldest day ever, and I quite like the autumnal feel it has to it. It was literally a throw on outfit that worked out for itself.

Vivienne Westwood Frilly Snake Heart Bag | Olympus Pen E-PL7 | Urban Decay Vice 4
FujiFilm Instax Mini | Marc Jacobs Decadence | Thomas Sabo Turtle & Clover
Blogger's Mug | Magnitone Lucid | Over The Knee Boots

You can't blame a girl for making a Christmas wishlist can you? Christmas seems to be all I can think about at the moment with it coming by so fast! (5 weeks people - FIVE WEEKS!) I've already began my Christmas shopping and I'm sure you may have already seen the start of some gift guides I'll be publishing to inspire anyone who may need a little help with their Christmas shop! It's only natural to think about things you may like to see under the Christmas tree this year - and for me it's also what I might like for my birthday with it being so close, so I thought I'd share my wishlist with you today!

What Cat Wore | Oversized & Grey

My new favourite outfit right now. This jumper from Primark is a dream and I want to wear it allllll the time. I bought this the other day when I popped into town to get a couple of bits done, and feeling the need to buy myself a new jumper I popped into Primark and grabbed this one. I fell for the super soft feel, the length and the oversized style. I couldn't decide on which colour to get, but I liked the grey most for versatility. Now I think I need to get all the other colours....

My Go-To Winter Make-Up Look

It's not often I blog about make up anymore, but I've been going back to the same make up look every other day for the past few weeks and I really felt the need to share it with you. If I'm not wearing this make up look, I'm either not wearing make up at all or I've gone for a nude look with a bright lip; my usual go-to look. But I've really been digging burgundy make up lately and so I've started to do this all burgundy make up look for a more winter/autumnal feel recently and I'm loving it!
I thought I'd share with you the products that I use to get this look, and why they are my favourites right now.
