May 2016 | Photo Diary

May 2016 | Photo Diary | Love, Catherine

I think I need a slap on the wrist because I've been slacking in the blogging department and as a result I'm slightly late in my post uploads, eek! However, I'm trying to get my act together, so here's a few of my favourite snaps from the month of May! 

Side note; If you follow me on  Instagram you may know that May is also my birthday month, but as I already have so many pictures for this post, I've decided to write a separate post dedicated to everything birthday related, from what I got up to, to some of the pretty presents I received, and it'll be up really soon!

A Hair Refresh Using Olaplex | Curly Blonde Hair
A Hair Refresh

I was treated as an early birthday gift to a much needed haircut and dye at a fancy salon, and I was so pleased with the outcome! They used Olaplex, which is a newish treatment designed for use with bleached hair to prevent any breakage throughout the process, and now my hair feels in such good condition! Would you believe I had about 5 inches cut off?! I also decided to go a little blonder and I love it!

H&M | Chalky Pink Nail Polish
H&M | Chalky Pink Nail Polish

Another manicure pic! I've really been loving my H&M polishes I bought a little while back, including this shade Chalky Pink, which is a lovely mauvey pink colour. I would definitely recommend you check these polishes out, they are great quality and have a lovely shade range. I really want to collect a few more!

Bath Goodies | Rose & Co. and Patisserie De Bain

Exciting Mail | Rose & Co. and Patisserie De Bain

I was so overwhelmed and excited when I received a giant box of goodies in the mail from Rose & Co. and Patisserie De Bain, I don't think a bath range could be any more 'me', right? It's all so pink and pretty and smells downright delicious, I mean I kinda want to eat the beautiful cupcake soaps but I think I'd regret that decision...

NYX | Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator, Sunbeam
NYX | Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator

There's something about those unobtainable brands that just make you want them all the more isn't there? (Despite the fact if they're any good or not). So I was pretty bloody excited to say the least when I spotted a shiny new NYX counter in my local Boots, and obviously had to take full advantage of this new privilege and buy a few things. One of the items that stood out to me most was this beautiful liquid highlighter in the shade Sunbeam. When swatched it's such a pretty, pinky pearl shade which looks so similar to Nars Copacabana!

Summer Hair | Wrap Around Fishtail Braids
Summer Hair | Wrap Around Fishtail Braids

As I have super long hair I love doing different things with it, but it's summer time when the braids just have to come out! I did this look by taking a section of hair near my ear from either side of my head and fishtail plaited them. I then pulled at them, making the braids bigger and looser and simply wrapped them around the back of my head and pinned them in place. So quick and easy but really pretty!

Doughnut/Donut Themed Birthday Cake
My Sister's Birthday Cake | Donut Themed Cake

Are you bored of my cake pictures yet?! It was my sister's birthday and I decided to create a Donut themed cake for her! It has a mixture of chocolate and vanilla sponge inside, sandwhiched together with yummy chocolate frosting.

    1. It was a yummy cake but sadly the doughnuts on top didn't last too long! I need to invest in massive domed cake stand or something so they stay as fresh as possible haha. Thanks girly! xo
