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.

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.

10 Things That Make Me Happy Right Now

source: rebloggy

I'm feeling like one too many things have been trying to get me down recently and it started to really annoy me. I hate being a negative person - it's not who I am and it's not who I intend to be ever. So when things like this happen, I like to list things that are making me happy right now no matter how small they may seem or are to other people. There are a few things I'm super excited about in my happy list, and there are a few things that are just little comforts. Either way, I hope you enjoy reading them as I enjoy sharing them!

Winter is creeping on us fast and before it disappears completely into the frosty winter weather, I thought I'd pull out my best autumnal outfit for a shopping trip this weekend. Burgundy and tan are real autumnal colours this season whilst high necks being statement styles and ribbed and suede are statement textures.

Let's Talk | Friends & Anxiety

Hello, My name is Cat and I have a problem with anxiety in social situations. To put it simply, I have fears and problems when it comes to making friends, maintaining friendships and all aspects of a social setting. It's a problem I've lived with most of my life and I'm here today to finally talk out loud about it. Tell you why I have it, and what I do to overcome it!

Admitting that this is a problem publicly is hard for me, because I'm already feeling slight anxiety about publishing it. I feel like I might accidentally offend any friends reading my blog, but I planned to write this post in order to help anyone with similar issues. And I'm doing all this because it's not nice feeling like a socially awkward mess, when actually you're a really nice person and you probably just need help with your confidence and being yourself! I, personally am still not 100% confident about being a social butterfly, but I'm hoping this post can help the both of us or anyone who knows someone who might be struggling with the same problem.

Throughout my time blogging, I don't think I've ever really seen a "this is what I wear at home when I'm not doing anything" type of outfit. So... I thought I'd do one today. And because I wanted to show off my Little Mermaid tee too.

So I was putting some old summer clothes and shoes away in the loft the other day when I came across a bag of clothes I thought were gone and forgotten! I not only found both my uni hoodies which I have religiously worn in replacement of all chill out jumpers and a couple of pieces that could be great for work including my new found waistcoat!

Style | New Glasses - Converse 15

Glasses are a new thing in my life after finding out how short sighted I am, and these Converse glasses in style code 15 are the second pair that I bought in Specsaver's infamous two for one offer. I absolutely love these simple but gorgeous deep purple and pink specs because they are perfect for versatility and more everyday looks.

I am certainly NOT a cat person. But when it comes to cats on clothes, I seem to melt. I think subconsciously I'm addicted to anything that can play with my name. Either way, this cat jumper I bought in the H&M in Lisbon was just too gorgeous and soft to leave there.
