My January

January has been pretty quiet. I haven't had anything big or exciting happening but I have been working hard on ensuring a great year of health, fitness, hard work and determination to succeed. Even if I fail at any of those, I hope that when I round up 2016 I can be proud of my effort. Even though there wasn't much going on this month - how can I not round up my first month of the new year?

January Favourites

A few months ago I decided to pick just five things to feature in my monthly favourite posts that were genuinely my favourites for that month. I feel like so many bloggers ans youtubers say that things so many things are their 'favourites' when actually out of all those things you've liked this month I wonder, what are your genuine favourite things out of those!? And that's what lead me to picking only 5 of all the things I've been enjoying each month. Let me share with you my five favourites for January!

Wishlist | Pink, White & Blue

Skirt / Top / Trainers / Shorts
Bralet / Bodysuit / Jeans / Adidas

The lightest pinks, the brightest blues and off whites. THAT, is what I'm ending up on when I'm window shopping the internet. I have a little folder on my bookmarks, and these are all the beauts I've bookmarked over the last week or so!

What Cat Wore | Postbox Red & Royal Blue

Ohhhh I do love a good colour clash! Especially when it's as bright as this one!
Tidying up my wardrobe on Sunday, I came across so many pieces I felt like wearing this week. My black culottes, my Disney tees and a striped 90s top I'm seriously neglecting! These are just a few of the things I rediscovered in my wardrobe this week along with this royal blue dress which is PERFECT for work.

#ILeftMyHeartIn Edinburgh

Earlier last week I received an email from the lovely people at GetYourGuide about their #ILeftMyHeartIn blogger competition. For the competition I would have to write about where I left my heart. Liking the sound of the competition and the task, it got me on my 'What Cat Did' label, throwing myself back to all the places I've been over the last 6 years. And of all the places I visited, I left my heart in Edinburgh. I visited Edinburgh for two days with John way back in March 2013 and Edinburgh was just amazing for so many reasons. It's a place I have a huge urge to go back to and though I saw so much of the beautiful city and what it has to offer, I still don't feel like I've seen it all.

What Cat Wore | Monochrome Floral

Today we're sitting in the corridor, where I'm sharing with you today's outfit. I'm also impatiently waiting for the days to get longer so I can start taking my outfit photos outside again since I'm always working those times. Winter is not a blogger's best friend. With the weather getting slightly warmer this week, I've started to ditch the constant cycle of knitwear and started wearing my neglected shirts for work. I'm also super obsessed with these treggings from Topshop I bought in the Boxing Day sales.

Blogging | Why I'll Follow Your Blog

A goal I didn't mention in my 2016 goals was to read more blogs this year. I started allocating time in my day to really relax and just enjoy some quiet time and in that quiet time I like reading all your blogs. I like reading so many different types of blogs too and I've followed quite a few new ones in the last couple of weeks. For this reason I thought it would be nice to share with you why I think you're blog is awesome and why I would follow you!
The second reason I've decided to blog about this is because I've seen a lot of blog posts over the last few months titled things like "Why I won't read your blog" or "Why I won't click to follow" (just examples). And personally I don't like this. Not to say that it is wrong, everyone is entitled to write whatever they like, but I just think about any blogger who might have insecurities in the blogosphere and how they might take that content. I think it portrays too much negativity in my opinion and we should be praising bloggers for what they're doing right rather than telling them what they're doing wrong. Advice posts though... I'm all for those. I like anything that acts as constructive criticism! ANYWAY.... Let's get onto the good bit...

Happy Things #2

Can you believe that in the mid month round up it's only been 3 weeks since Christmas!? It's actually crazy... But it does mean I get to talk about the things that made me happy at the end of December as well as the things that have already happened in the first two weeks of 2016. I've had a hectic few weeks, but I've had a lot to be happy about and have appreciated. Let me share with you what's making me happy right now.

What Cat Wore | Laced Up

Apologies for my lateness to the bandwagon, but I've just discovered the 'laced up' trend and I can't believe it took me this long. I was on Missguided doing some sale shopping on Boxing Day when I came across this gorgeous jumper and the reason I wasn't a big fan of the lace thing at first was because I didn't quite like the low front lace up detail for me; but when I saw this gorgeous laced sleeve detailing I just had to get it.

Wishlist | Miscellaneous & Props

Cinematic Light Box | Bath Roses | Glass Pebbles
Unicorn Money Box | Rose Candle | Skeleton Scatter Leaves

It is no secret that as bloggers we've started to invest in little 'props' for our photography and nicer things to have around our homes to make our photography more aesthetically pleasing. I'm no exception, BUT I haven't yet bought anything for that reason yet. But I did make a wishlist of things I'd like to have around the house that would not only make my spaces prettier but my photos prettier too.

Lifestyle | Zero Gravity iPhone 6S Case

iPhone 6 Case - Zero Gravity via ASOS

Today I'm here to tell you about my awesome new phone case for my new iPhone 6S. I ended up upgrading recently and wanted a decent phone case about it and just need to tell you why I love this one from Zero Gravity so much. I know it's just a phone case - but I don't think I've liked one half as much as I love this one before!

Style | High Leg Boots

Say hello my newest boots. Bound to appear often on the blog this year for being totally awesome and making every outfit look a little bit lot more stylish. I love a good pair of boots and these have been on my wishlist for a long time. But to get a pair that I absolutely love without picking them myself makes these just the more amazing for me.

Why My Mum Is One Of My Style Icons

My Mum. Looking back on photos from when she first came to London at 18 and from when she was about my age - I think she had amazing style! She was always wearing something on trend or looking her absolute best. I'm so inspired by these photos and I'm so glad she took so many because I get to see so many of her amazing outfits. Today I'm going to share some of these with you and tell you why my mum is one of my style icons!

15 Things I Learned in 2015

2015 was pretty good to me. Positive things happened that made me a happier and more motivated human being. Of course I had a few downs with my ups but with all that put together I learned from the happenings of 2015, and now I can use those things to kick 2016's butt! I've seen this sort of post floating around around over the last few days and I thought it was a great way to share what we've all learned last year, so I really wanted to create this post too. Whether it be about myself or about the world, I want to share with you just 15 things I learned in the last year.
