Hello Coveters, As you may have guessed my name is Kate and I’ve started up my own Beauty, Fashion & Lifestyle blog as it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. Writing has been a huge passion of mine ever since I can remember. I would write anything & everything from stories to songs, poems & magazine articles. My dream job is to be a paid writer for a glossy magazine writing about fashion, beauty, lifestyle, travel or even have my own column. Fashion & Beauty are huge passions of mine too; I spend my days thinking about clothes, shoes, handbags, lipgloss & mascara. I’m always lusting after an exciting new product. I read rather a lot of magazines (much to my boyfriend’s dismay!) and I envy those lucky beauty editors who get to spend their days sampling delightful new products.
I enjoy shopping, playing with my dog: Louie (he’s a beautiful black Labrador), Travelling & holidays (I’ve been to some amazing places including Kenya, Mexico, Egypt, Cyprus, France & Spain but there’s still lots of places I’d love to travel & explore), chilling out at the beach, walks along the coast and swimming in the sea. Reading books & magazines, cuddled up with my boyfriend watching films & tv. I am also an occasional participant in a local pub quiz with a group of friends (we normally do pretty badly – too many questions about sport!) I have always loved drama and used to act in local plays and pantos. I go to the theatre as often as I can; I particularly love musicals but I enjoy most types of theatre. My favourites are: Les Miserables (I love the story but the soundtrack is just WOW), The Lion King (It’s a childhood classic and the costumes are awesome), The Woman in Black (The film was pretty good but the theatre version is a million times better and scarier) and Wicked (its a great story, some amazing costumes and of course that song “Gravity”). There is still lots on my list of productions to see though! We’re going to see Chicago, Sister Act and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at The Bristol Hippodrome this year (blog posts will follow!)
I’ve had chronic health issues for about four years now and my condition means that I have severe/chronic pain in my back, legs & stomach. I struggle to walk but manage to hobble around my home using a crutch but normally have to use a wheelchair for further distances. I had an operation in November 2015 but unfortunately it made me worse rather than improving my mobility. I’m very lucky to have such a supportive & helpful boyfriend who helps me through all my issues & difficult times. I’m hoping to write a full post explaining everything soon.
I’m very proud to be part of #TheGirlGang Twitter group as it’s such a positive place full of fun & kind people. #TheGirlGang Twitter chats take place every Monday evening at 6pm. Topics vary each week. Come & join us to help spread positivity
I’m so thrilled to be nominated for the Liebster Award! See my blog post on the subject for full details (April 2016)
