My April


April is over and it's been super kind to me. I've enjoyed some time in the sun, explored a new country, ticked something off my travel bucket list, been to my first football game and officially completed a 2016 goal. If that doesn't count for a pretty great month for a pretty average woman, I don't know what does! Can I tell you all about April's highlights now? :)

Lifestyle | Stationery Week with T-Tag

This week we're celebrating National Stationery Week and being an avid stationery enthusiast, I love buying/trying stationery new or old so of course I was excited to try a new stationery product this week! Small but mighty, say hello to these cool treasury tags by T-Tag *! They're the next generation of keeping loose papers together and your life in order. Let me tell you a little more about why these are different to your regular treasury tag.

Lifestyle | Personalised iPhone Case ft. GoCustomized

 
It was only in January that I got my new iPhone and since then I've only had one case that has done me quite well for the last four months. Back when I had my 5S, I had about 8 different cases that I'd swap around until they broke or wore out. But with my new phone I wanted to make sure I had a phone case that had high quality in both looks and strength, as well as one I'd love for a long time.
Though my old case was doing a real good job, I wanted a change. Cue the review of my new case:

Blog Changes

 
If you regularly read my blog, you may have noticed some changed here over the last month or so. What Cat Says has slowly but surely returned to being more a lifestyle blog than the fashion blog it has been over the last couple of years. There are many reasons why this transition/restructure has happened and whilst thinking about these changes, I decided I wanted to write about them. I wanted to write about how it happened, why it happened and actually, why I'm in a much happier place with my blog because of the change.

Updated | The Travel Bucket List

 
Back in August 2014, I wrote down a bucket list of places I want to visit all around the world. I've always kept tabs on that list and go back to it every few months to see where I could go next or what I could do next. That said, I have changed my mind about a few places and I've got new places in mind that I'd love to visit instead. I thought it was about time I updated that list, and what better way than to re-write it in a new post to keep it current?

Keeping Organised with Busy B

 
The next year of my life is going to get hectic and I'm going to have to make sure I'm 100% organised for a smooth and stress free year. If you follow me on Twitter or read my recent 2016 Goals Update then you'll know I recently secured my place for teacher training next year. With blogging, working whilst training, studying and keeping a happy and healthy social life, it's going to be hard. Luckily, I've quickly become a proudly organised person, and on top of that I'm already a huge stationery enthusiast! With that in mind, I was so happy when Busy B hooked me up with some super cute stationery that will be making my next year just that little bit easier (and cuter)! I want to tell you all about it.

Happy Things #5


The last couple of weeks have been so lovely! I've been full of smiles, happiness and adventure. And even though I am back at work tomorrow, I don't mind because I've really made the most of my time off. And with that in mind, I think this is a great time to write all about the things that have been making me happy recently!

What Cat & John Did | Santorini

 
Santorini. You were beautiful. The pretty cities along the caldera and the beautiful views and streets everywhere I turned. I loved Santorini, and I want to be back in that beautiful sunshine already! Or another Greek island exploring some more. It was my Nikon's first proper outing and I was so excited to snap away memories on this beautiful island... and I took a LOT of photos! But here are just a few of the snaps I took, and whilst we're looking at those let me tell you all about mine and John's week away to Santorini...
 
*WARNING* This is a LONG post!

2016 Goals - Update


Back on the 28th December 2015, I wrote a list of goals to aim for throughout 2016 in both life and blogging. Often, I write up these goals and I don't do much else about them after writing them, but this time has been different. I've been working hard on my goals this year and though only early April, I can say I've completed one and making progress on a couple of others. Read on to take a look at how I'm doing!

Style | Catz Watch

 
I love watches. I never used to be a watch kinda girl, but over the last couple of years I started to really like them, and now feel odd when I'm not wearing one. So when I received this Catz watch as a present this Easter, I was really excited because well... new watch! And because it's got a cat face on it! ♥

Wishlist | Trainers

Nike Roche | Adidas Superstars | Nike Max Thea
Converse Neon Lime | Converse Pink Hologram Metallic
Adidas Superstars Metal Toe | Nike Air Max | Puma Kylie Fierce

This post was inspired by my John this week. On Sunday went out shopping for last minute holiday things and we ended up in a couple of shoe shops and I couldn't help but browse the women's trainers whilst he shopped for his next new pair. He loves his trainers and gets some amazing pairs and now, he's slowly getting me into them too and I'm obsessing over so many pairs right now.

What Cat Wore | Travel Wear


As you read this, I'm currently driving to the airport en route to Santorini! I'm so excited right now, and so happy to be finally going away somewhere lovely and warm for a well deserved break away. I did although quickly want to share with you what I'm wearing today because I love my outfit! Also, apologies for the odd colouring in the photos - I took them really late last night, and didn't get another chance to re-photograph. But I still want to share this look with you!

Beauty | Holiday Makeup


Oddly enough, it took me no time at all to put together my makeup bag for Santorini. Normally I'm struggling to pick exactly what I'll need to create all the makeup looks I want to on holiday, but this time I'm absolutely confident that I won't be missing anything. Let me show you what I have with me for my week away!

Lifestyle | Desk Tour


I love my desk space. It's a happy space for me. Having my own room meant that I could finally create a place to work and play when I needed it, and make it my own. It seems to be where I spend a lot of time in my room, despite having a super comfortable bed and a cute and comfortable vintage chair I refurbished to sit on! That said, today I thought it would be nice to show you around my desk top and touch on why this is a happy space for me.
