I’m Katie Portman, a Yorkshire based writer / freelancer, appreciator of all things stylish and a lover of life and it’s many adventures.
I’m a feminist who likes men and I’m on a bit of a mission to make more women feel good about themselves. I’ve also recently become a besotted Mum to my beautiful little girl, Elsie Florence.
I’ve no idea how my pout came to be. My sister and husband were the first to really notice that I often pout without realising. Apparently I even do it whilst putting on mascara!
I never pout seriously, only unconsciously or for fun. Over the years, my pout has become something of a legend among my nearest and dearest and has even received fame and recognition in it’s own right! Yes folks, I recently won a ‘most luscious lips in Yorkshire’ competition.
I’ve always been in love with heels. When I was 16, I injured my foot and had to face the unthinkable – that I’d have to wear flat shoes to school. Safe to say, it wasn’t one of my better days.
My love for high heels intensified when I became the Editor of Out On A Limb Magazine – a publication ALL about shoes. It was a dream job and only served to remind me that life is just oh so more fabulous in a pair of heels.
To this day, I remain convinced that they are better for my feet, my happiness and wellbeing. Yes, I do sometimes wear flats, but mostly begrudgingly and only when needs must. For me, heels will ALWAYS be, my footwear of choice.
