My October


This October has seemed to have flown past. I've been to a blogger event, gone on a weeks holiday and just had a week off for half term. It's got significantly colder in the mornings and I've actually had a pretty busy and alright month.

Mini Vlog | Portugal, Lisbon 2015


If you don't know I am actually on YouTube! And even though it's not a big thing for me, when I have an idea or go on holiday I like to film, edit and post it there! I haven't properly posted anything since February but late Monday evening, I did edit and post a mini vlog of some of my holiday to Portugal! Psst!... Click the read more button to find it ;)

10 Things Found In A Blogger's Bedroom


So this post was originally inspired by a poem the children in my class were doing right at the beginning of the year. It was so much fun to think about 10 things found in a certain person's pocket, or room or house that I thought it would be fun to see if I could think up 10 things you could find in a blogger's bedroom! I did think up 10 things that I found in my own bedroom, and I'd love to see how many of you can relate... Let's go!

Wishlist | Monochrome Bags ft. SammyDress

Sammy Dress Monochrome Bags




Monochrome bags are my obsession right now. They're so versatile going with absolutely everything,and they always look classy! After rummaging through my bag collection at home, I realised I have a ton of monochrome clutch bags and just the one shoulder bag! I invested in a gorgeous one from New Look but I've got a new found thirst for fun, statement style shoulder bags now and I've found some gorgeous ones whilst window shopping SammyDress a few days ago.

What Cat & John Did | Portugal - Lisbon, Leiria & Nazaré


So a couple of weeks ago, John and I headed off to Portugal for a week. During the week we travelled around Leiria where my family come from, Nazaré and Lisbon to see family, meet my new baby cousin and just generally have a nice relaxing time away. I took a few photos along the way that I thought would be nice to document. Looking at these I forget how beautiful Portugal can be and the little secrets you can find in each place you go.

Style | New Glasses - FCUK 99



Hi everyone! Sorry I've been gone so long, but I needed a short break from the internet and socialising. Life got too busy and I needed to catch up on some serious sleep (roll on tomorrow mornings long lie in)! Today I'm back to show off my newest and favourite accessory and necessity; my FCUK glasses in style code 99! ♥

Skincare Routine | Balance Hyaluronic Moisturiser (Step 3)

Skincare Routine | Balance Hyaluronic Moisturiser

I'm one of those girls who should have the back of her hand smacked for not moisturising enough. I suffer from pretty dry skin especially during the colder months but thanks to my new skincare routine I think I have this in check for the winter.
In my current skincare routine I've been using the Balance Active Formula Hyaluronic Moisturiser as my final step to add a little extra moisture and love to my skin before starting my day or heading off to bed.

Style | Navy Velvet Boots

Blue Velvet Boots

Let's just admire these for a minute shall we?
My latest addition to my shoe collection, and it was a spontaneous purchase and my best spontaneous purchase ever. I'm not one for buying shoes or even shopping for anything fashion online, but when I saw these on the New Look website I had to have them!

Skincare Routine | Kleem Organics Vitamin C Serum (Step 2)

Skincare Routine | Kleem Organics Vitamin C Serum

I've never really been a serum girl. I always thought serums were just ridiculously expensive products you'd buy for anti-ageing and always wondered what all the hype around them was about. It wasn't until I delved into a serum myself that I've actually discovered what it was all about and why I should have one in my current skincare routine.
Right now I'm using the Kleem Organics Vitamic C Serum and I have lots to say about it.

What's In My Travel Bag?

New Bag!

So today I am off to Portugal for a week holiday (YAY!) and I thought I would show you what I'm taking in my hand luggage. It's not a lot, just the things I might need to entertain me through the 2 and a half hour flight, and some of the essentials. I love seeing what people carry in their bags whether it be everyday or for holiday. I've also got a new bag to flex, so I'm really excited about this one! ^_^

What Cat Did | Hillary's Crafternoon

Hillarys Crafternoon -  My Jewellery Box
Hillarys Crafternoon

Last Sunday, I was invited to attend Hillary's Crafternoon to learn all about Hillary's New 'Jewel Edit', which is a collection of new fabrics for curtains and blinds inspired by the fashion and colours for this season. When I was invited, I felt it was going to tie in well with some future posts I have in mind to do with my fresh new bedroom as I have just got my new curtains (put up today!) from Hillary's themselves!
I of course said yes to attending, and had the loveliest afternoon meeting new bloggers and crafting with Hillary's and The Crafty Hen!

Skincare Routine | Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Creme (Step 1)

Skincare Routine | Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Creme

So I had this idea of doing a skincare routine blog post featuring new products I've been using every morning and night for the last 4 weeks or so. I really wanted to do full reviews of the new products I've been using and felt that it would be too long in one post. Wondering how I would do it, I eventually decided to make it a sort of 'mini-series' showcasing each of the products I've been using over the course of two weeks (so not to bombard with beauty reviews). I hope you enjoy this mini beauty series on my blog starting off with my newest cleanser by Exuviance!

For an evening out, my go to outfit is a pair of great skinny jeans and a pretty top with the most highest heels I have. Friday night was a couple of friend's birthday so I had a chance to dress up a little bit as well as pull out these bad boy white cleated sandals I haven't worn in way too long!

Arrows & Chains | JewelleryBox.co.uk


At the #BloggersFestival I so happy to meet the lovely people at JewelleryBox.co.uk. They were so lovely to talk to and had the most beautiful set up on the day - it looked like a fairytale woodland. I couldn't get over their beautiful jewellery and was soon on the website when I arrived home later that evening looking at all their pieces and collections.
I was lucky enough to receive a little surprise jewellery box on the day. When I finally had settled down at home after a long and eventful day, I opened up my surprise box to discover this beautiful and dainty rose gold earring and necklace set!

My September


My September has been so eventful this year! I've had so much going on and I couldn't ask for a better month really. Though I know my life may be a little bland at times and I don't have lots going on, when it does I really appreciate and enjoy it.
This month I've had events to go to, friends to see, a new job to start and a new car to drive. It's been pretty awesome really so let's take a look back at September.
