LIFE: A Saturday night with Germaine Greer

AT about 8pm on Saturday night, I was battling with myself not to cry. I wasn’t watching X-Factor or a sad soppy film. Nor was I at a wedding or in the middle of a heated argument. I was listening to the brilliant, passionate and totally inspirational Germaine Greer speak at my local theatre and I was trying not to cry because I didn’t want to end up a sniffling,

STYLE: And bags of it…

LONG before I became a high heels lover, my first fashion obsession was with handbags. Yes, they were my first style love. And although heels may have since taken over my fashion lust, I still adore them, as much as I once did. The only difference, is that these days, because I’m a mum trying to juggle parenthood with freelancing, when it comes to bags, I now have to think

STYLE: My favourite AW looks from the high street

I ADORE this time of year. The glorious colours of nature, the beautiful natural light, the fact that it’s still usually warm enough to enjoy being outside (on most occasions) and the fact that the nights begin to cosily draw in. But more than any of these, I just love autumn/winter fashion. From ‘proper’ coats to knee high boots, chunky knits to snuggly scarves, sequins to dark lace, there isn’t

POUT OF APPROVAL: Tea infusions from the Bluebird Tea Co.

MY name is Katie and I am a tea-aholic. No really, I totally am. When it comes to tea, I just can’t get enough. I drink umpteen cups of the stuff all day long. But whilst I do love a good cup of ‘normal’ tea (Yorkshire Tea is my always my preferred option for this) over the years I have started to cut back on Yorkshire’s finest and opt for

FRIDAY FIVE: Easy ways to step up and start ‘owning’ your life

SO, after a little break I’m back with my blogging mojo well and truly restored! I love blogging so I’ve got to tell you it was a bit difficult not to feel guilty about my time away from you all but I have to say, it’s done me the world of good.

LIFE: Taking a break…

YOU may remember that a while ago I spoke about the importance of slowing down and looking after ourselves more. Well folks recently I’ve been forgetting my own advice (stupid I know) and because of that, a few months on, I now feel like my mojo has done a bunk. The good news is that all of this can easily be remedied with less work, less stress and a lot more rest

FRIDAY FIVE: What I’ve learnt about marriage (so far)…

TODAY the husband and I are celebrating five years of marriage and boy has it gone quickly! It doesn’t seem two minutes since our wedding day and yet over the past five years our lives have changed so much. We’ve entered our thirties, made bold career moves, visited new places, moved into a new home and of course welcomed our daughter into the world. It really has been a blast.
