July 2016 | Photo Diary

Love, Catherine | July 2016 Photo Diary

Another month, another photo diary! Are you getting bored of these yet?! I hope not as I kinda love creating them *insert sassy emoji*

Engagement Bridal Cupcakes with Fondant Decorations
Engagement Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for my sister's best friend and considering I baked them last minute, I was so pleased with how they turned out. I l.o.v.e.d designing and making them, probably because the theme gave me free range to be super pretty and girly which you'll probably know I can't resist! My favourite to create was probably the pretty wedding dress!

MAC Lipstick Storage

The only downside to have a teeny tiny huge makeup addiction is ultimately having nowhere to store it all (and the constant no money part but we'll ignore that bit okay). I currently have a large stack of nine Muji drawers that just wont fit everything in anymore, so I decided to take out my MAC lipsticks and find them a new home. I popped them into this pink tub which is actually the container from my Charbonnel Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles my boyfriend bought me for my birthday. They were also ridiculously expensive for a box of truffles, so I'm glad I've put the pretty packaging to good use so I can feel a little less guilty..

Cover FX | Custom Enhancer Drops, Celestial
Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops

These Custom Enhancer Drops from Cover FX were an instant need as soon as I'd caught a glimpse of them online! The drops are basically a liquid highlighter that once applied look like actual liquid platinum, it's insane. The colour I've got is Celestial which is a really pretty pinky pearl shade that I'm just obsessed with. I've been loving mixing this in with my Double Wear foundation to give it a bit more life.

Hair Half Up Half Down, Soft Curls
Hair Half Up

I ever can't go too long without posting some kind of hair picture over on  Instagram! You know when you get asked what your favourite feature about yourself is? Well mine's never been anything other than my hair, it's basically the only thing I get complimented on haha. I'm thinking of doing a whole series of posts about my haircare, so keep an eye out for that.


4th And Reckless | Fluffy Heels & Patent Pink Boots
New Shoes

I was so excited to receive the prettiest set of heels from the footwear brand  4th And Reckless. I've been wanting a pair of  fluffy sandals for too long but y'know, as soon as I get money makeup happens and I'm poor again, so I can't wait to wear these ones out! They also sent me the cutest  perspex patent pink boots which have a clear pink heel, and I know they're not for everyone but they're adorable! Whether I can pull them off or not is another matter...

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance & Charlotte Tilbury Kim K.W. Lipstick
Makeup Pretties

Who can resist a pretty makeup flatlay? Not me! I've been loving my Charlotte Tilbury Kim K.W. nude lipstick which you can read a full review about here. My Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette, is also the palette of dreams, it's so super pigmented and the shade range is so unique.

Made With Love Fondant Cupcakes with Flowers & Bows
More Cupcakes!

I've been on a baking roll the past couple of months, I just can't seem to stop myself! I made this lot for a charity bake sale last weekend and I loved the how the pastel pink, soft blue and lilac shades turned out together! I found a set of cookie stamps in Asda with cute 'homemade' sayings on them and thought they'd be perfect for fondant decorations, plus they were on sale for only £1.50, gotta love a bargain!

  1. I absolutely love your photo diaries, even though I follow you on Instagram I just love these kind of posts. Ever since I read your review on the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick I've been wanting it. I may just have to treat myself considering payday has just passed. Those fluffy shoes are just fab *major heart eyes* x

    1. Aw I'm so glad you like them, I never know if people enjoy them or not as they might've seen the pictures before on my Instagram! I just like that I get to feature more pretty pictures on here too, and give them more than just a short Instagram caption! xo
