About

Hello stranger!

Where to start? Well, my name is Katie and I've lived in the same little village right on the coast of Southern England all my life. I currently live with my Mum, Dad and our Cairn terrier cross, Tegan. My older brother has flown the nest and hopefully I won't be far behind! I recently finished university where I received a BA Hons degree in English and Creative Writing, and this blog is part of my creative outlet. Like most young girls I loved playing dress-up, putting on my Mum's lipstick and struggling to walk in her too-big-big-girl-shoes, so chatting about makeup and skincare has come pretty naturally to me. I've also had a passion for writing since a young age, and hope to find a post-graduate job in some kind of creative field. Right now I'm happy to just work locally until I find exactly what I want to do. As long as I'm earning money to fund my shopping habit then that's all that matters to me!

More recently I've become more involved in the varied world of lifestyle blogging. I love going on adventures with my camera and snapping away at anything and everything. It has fed my newer passion for photography which was only discovered when I started this blog back in 2013. I'm an avid baker and my expanding waistline probably shows that! I also spend hours on Pinterest looking for beautiful crisp and clean interiors (honestly, it's mostly white and grey themed, just look!), just wishing and hoping that my future house will be as beautiful.

If you can't find me mooching about on here then I'm almost certainly glued to Twitter and Instagram. Oh my goodness, I'm obsessed with IG! How did I ever eat my meals without taking a photo of it first?


Up until July 2014, I used a Nikon 1 J1 with the standard 10-30mm lens for all my blog photographs. It's a little bit iffy at times but it has served me well over the last couple of years! As of July 2014, all my blog photographs have been taken with a Canon EOS 700D DSLR with the standard 18-55mm kit lens. My Instagram posts contain photographs taken with my iPhone 6.
