LIFE & STUFF (AKA WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO RECENTLY)

IT’S frantic isn’t it this time of year? So much to do, so little time? When we’re all supposed to fit everything in, I have absolutely no idea but still we can only do what we can do right?! (Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself.) I’ve been up to all sorts of late, of the lovely variety, so I thought I’d share what’s been filling up my days

A CHRISTMAS WISH ‘LYST’

IF SANTA asks me what I’d like for Christmas this year… well let’s just say I’m all prepared. I’ve been doing a spot of wish list shopping, you see, with Lyst – a brilliant website that is a bit like an online personal shopper, which has access to the very best brands – and have picked out some gorgeous pieces that I would love to see underneath my Christmas tree, very

A CLASSIC WINTER COAT (THAT’S CHIC AND WARM)

WHEN it comes to style at this time of year, it’s all about the coat is it not? The coat that keeps us warm, protects us from the rather chilly (and often wet) elements and hopefully makes us looks super chic. It’s not so easy though, is it? Picking a decent winter coat? As it has to do so many things. And it has to do them well. We need

A MAGICAL, WINTERY EVENING AT DISNEY ON ICE

IT all started with a dress. This dress. A special Frozen dress (which lights up and has a magical brooch and everything!) Yep, Elsie would go to…Disney On Ice Presents World Of Enchantment, courtesy of the kind people at Sheffield Motorpoint Arena who invited me, Elsie and two guests (my sister Sal and niece Ella) as their VIPs on the front row. A reminder, if ever there was one, that

CAN WE JUST QUIT WITH THE BULLS**T? (AKA FAKERY)

I DON’T know what’s happened to me over the past few months. But I do know this. No longer can I stand fakery. No longer can I stand the not so sweet smell of bulls**t that seems to linger pretty much everywhere these days. Do you know what I mean?! I’ve talked about it a few times on my blog previously. About the importance of being honest and authentic. And

SPONSORED POST: JAMIE OLIVER’S ASSAM ROAST DUCK (WITH PG TIPS)

CRISPY duck is one of my absolute favourite dishes of all time. (I just cannot get enough of Chinese food!) And tea, any kind of tea, is my favourite hot drink. So what do you get when you pop the two together? A very happy Katie, that’s what! One of the things I really enjoy doing over the Christmas period, when I have some time off work, is trying out a

A STAY AT THE GREAT VICTORIA HOTEL, BRADFORD

A NIGHT alone? In a hotel? Without little Elsie? Well that’s something of a rare treat for the husband and I, so we were thrilled to be invited to stay at the Great Victoria hotel in Bradford just last month. We had a smashing time. Relaxed lots. Ate lots. Drank lots. And even managed a bit of a lie in too. But enough about what we go up to (although I’ll

LIFE STUFF I STILL NEED TO LEARN AS I TURN 36 (!)

I KNOW nothing. Ok, so maybe not nothing but definitely, very little. If I was an owl, I would be rubbish, because you know they’re supposed to be wise and well, I’m far from that. Yet. It’s my birthday tomorrow and I will be turning the ripe young age of 36. And so, last night when I was thinking what to write about today, I thought, I know! I’ll share
