Currently I'm...

I spent an amazing day at the beach on Sunday with my friends. We spent a lot of the day in the ocean, we ate chips and I became a mermaid (shown above).  :D

I saw this post over at Your Almost Alice and absolutely loved the idea; it's a bit different and is a really nice way to update your readers and share some of the things you've been loving recently. After my little blogging hiatus I thought this would be a good way to come back after my Summer Reads series, and tell you all what's been going on in my life. ^_^

Until two days ago I was re-reading the Summer trilogy by Jenny Han. I finished the last book on Sunday, cried a lot (as per) then moved on to Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler. This book has been on my TBR list for over a year and it finally made it's way onto my bookshelf last Monday. I can't express how much I was looking forward to reading this book. I'm only about 20 pages in at the moment but so far I'm enjoying it. :D

Just the usual stuff to be honest: The Apprentice (Team Clough), Australia's Next Top Model, Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model, Ultimate Shopper, New Girl and Glee re-runs. I watch about an hour of TV each day so these programmes are enough. ^__^ As far as YouTube goes, I've been in love with MarkIsRealBored for the past month or so, and I've been watching a lot of FashionRocksMySocks videos for fashion and beauty inspiration. 

Listening To:
For the past few days I've been listening to All Time Low constantly. I've loved ATL for about 4 years but until a few days I hadn't listened to them for a few months. I think I was slightly let down by Don't Panic when I first heard it so I took a ATL hiatus, but now Don't Panic is my current favourite album. I guess I just needed a break.  'The Irony Of Choking On A Lifesaver' is probably my favourite track on the CD. :P

Right this minute I'm drinking a diet pepsi but that's pretty rare for me, haha! I've just been sticking to water and fruit juice because the hot weather has put me off tea and hot chocolate. 

The weather! Since Saturday Scotland has actually had sun. It was a shock to the system for the first couple of days because I hadn't seen the sun in quite a while, but I'm kinda getting used to it now. I've been slowly dying from the heat but I'm sure it won't last long so I'm making the most of it while it's here. ^_^ 

Spending time with my friends. :D I've been off on my summer holidays for just over a week but I only just saw my friends on Saturday. This always seems to happen during the start of the holidays; we all spend a  bit of time apart before making lots of plans and seeing each other a lot. On Saturday I spent a day in town with a couple of friends, Sunday was beach day (one of the best days I've ever had) and yesterday we went to the cinema to see 'Now You See Me' (bloody amazing btw), and I've absolutely loved spending time with everyone. My friends are amazing. :')

Not much to be honest....I've learned that sunglasses make a really great hairband on hot days, Boris Becker and Boris Johnson are different people, Moscow is a place in Scotland, it's hard to do a cartwheel in the ocean, Jesse Eisenberg is wonderful and flip-flops float in deep water. 

Summery clothes! :D On Sunday I wore a sundress with denim shorts underneath, yesterday I wore skinny jeans (big mistake) and a floaty vest top, and today I'm wearing stripey denim shorts and a muscle tank. I've also been living in sunglasses since Saturday. :P

I might make this a regular feature, what do you think?
Lots of love, Cat


  1. WHY WE BROK-- right yes Emily we get the picture -_-

    I'd really like to see Now You See Me! :D

    1. Do you like Why We Broke Up? I had no idea! You should have said so. ;P

      Now You See Me is amazing! It's in my top 3 films of the year so far, and I have pretty high standards, hehe. :D xx

  2. I really enjoyed reading this post - I've never heard of the Jenny Han books so I'll have to have a little read! Lovely blog!

    Hey Cat, I was wondering how did you do those little line things below your header? It's really lovely! xx

    1. To be honest I just messed around with my HTML a bit and got the tab border to be dashed instead of solid. You could just try having a look through your HTML and seeing if there's anything about tab borders there. :) xx

  4. You sound like you are having a lot of fun!

    1. I really am, I love the Summer! ^_^ xx
