December 2016 | Photo Diary

Love, Catherine | December Photo Diary

Love, Catherine | Cosy Pastel Pom Pom Socks
Cosy Pom Pom Socks

You can't see through the Winter without a new pair of cosy socks, and I found this adorable cream pair on  Asos. Aren't those pastel pom poms just the cutest! They have the softest fluffy lining too which I wasn't expecting!

Love, Catherine | Cute Pastel Christmas Cupcakes
Christmas Cupcakes

Of course I had to make some Christmas themed cupcakes and I went for a cutesy pastel theme, but honestly, did you expect any less? The little pink snowman and the Christmas pudding are definitely my favourites!

Love, Catherine | Pretty Primark Finds
Pretty Primark Finds

I swear with Primark you either go in and find absolutely zilch, zero, nothing, nada and you wonder why you bothered, and other times you pop in and come across aall the cute bargains and it restores your faith in the Primarni mothership. I spotted this gorgeous pink, memory foam (!) bathmat with 'beautiful' written across it and I had to get it. At the moment I'm using it as little rug in my bedroom, but I can imagine it looking so dreamy in a pamper room next to a white roll top bath! I also picked up a gorgeous fluffy pink pom pom blanket, which is so cute and ridiculously soft for Primark, which was part of Gabriella/VelvetGh0st's Primark range!


Love, Catherine | Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder
Chanel Les Beiges

I splurged on the Chanel  Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder after getting a few recommendations for it. It's a lovely finely milled powder which sets makeup, add a little coverage but doesn't look cakey or powdery. It gives a gorgeous, natural, demi-matte finish which lets your skin breathe. I've found on my more oily skintype it does leave me a little shinier after a couple of hours than I'd hoped, but for days when I want something not too intense, it's perfect. I think this would be a dream for those with normal to dry skin! Plus it smells beautiful too.

Love, Catherine | Oliver Bonas Kitty Ring Holder
Kitty Ring Holder & Take Note Notepad

Oliver Bonas is a killer for making me want all the pretty homeware! I found this adorable Kitty Ring Holder and thought it was so sweet. They also have the same pretty design as  Salt & Pepper Shakers, and a gorgeous  Trinket Dish! I also came across this beautiful pink and gold notepad from WHSmith with 'Take Note' written on the top in gold foil. They had a whole range of pastel pink Kate Spade-esque stationery!

Love, Catherine | Bubblegum Scented Lash Print Candle
Bubblegum Lash Candle

I found this Sleepy Candle from Monki whilst I was browsing  Asos on Black Friday and had to nab it. The little ditsy lash print just sold me and it's also got a sweet, bubblegum scent. Plus it would be beautiful to keep as storage after I've burnt the candle! I can't find it in stock anymore, but I did find these adorable  cup and saucers in the same print, which would be so cute for storing makeup brushes and beauty bits in!


Love, Catherine | Pink Makeup
Makeup Mess

I feel like my photo diaries aren't quite complete if you don't see some kind of pink makeup mess! I had a little makeup organisation day but obviously I had to snap a few photos in the process, right?! The  Guerlain Meteorites Perfecting Pearls Base is such a dreamy, lovely primer!

Love, Catherine | Laduree Macaron Keychain
Laduree Keychain

I swear this month has been mostly about me buying new things, eek sorry!! But my boyfriend treated me to this cute Macaron Keycharm from Laduree whilst we were in London and I just love it! I've wanted one forever! Although I'm undecided if I should use it as a key ring or a bag charm...


Hope you had a lovely December!

xoxo
