About

I’m Katie, a 24 year old Communications Intern from a little town in Northern Ireland called Ballyclare but now based in Dublin!

Ever since my mummy dressed me in her hand-made clothes, I’ve had an obsession with fashion, which then led to my worrying shopping addiction. I’ve always wanted to work in the Fashion business starting with media and marketing.  However, in Northern Ireland there isn’t a big enough audience who care for such a platform.  I was previously a Creative Stylist for one of the UK’s largest retailers.  I  styled mannequins with the newest outfits in order to make them appealing and commercial to customers, and help with the interiors of the store such as new lighting, new graphics, posters and window schemes.

In 2014 I began thinking about launching a blog where I could post outfits, recipes and reviews, but unfortunately I hit a few bumps in the road that held me back.  2017 was the year I finally began to share my love for fashion and food with all of you.

It’s been over 2 years since I started my blog and it has honestly been the best decision ever! The number of doors it has opened for me is endless.

Get to know me:

Describing my style: I would never limit myself to one sense of style.  I evolve as the trends change.  One day I could be dressed head to toe in Topshop’s latest rock trend, the next I could look like Zara’s classic minimalist and another day I could style myself in Urban Outfitters’ hipster chic threads.
