Hi there, friend. I’m Katelyn. Welcome to my blog! A bit about me: I’m a newlywed and wife to my best friend in the world, Kasey, and a soon-to-be momma to a baby boy in October.
I started this blog in January of 2016 as a creative outlet to share my love of storytelling and to practice what I was studying in college at the time: advertising and public relations. After graduating from college in the spring of 2017 with a B.A. in Strategic Communications, this blog has evolved with my interests and is now a place where I share my passion for self-care, laid-back beauty, and organized living.
Self-care has been crucial to my mental health journey while dealing with anxiety. For me, self-care is taking time to myself to think, reflect, and practice gratitude while doing something I enjoy like writing in my journal, painting my nails, or practicing calligraphy. Taking time for yourself isn’t selfish, it is often just the thing you need to be your best self- for both you and others!
My beauty routine can be described as low-maintenance and easygoing. You won’t catch me with a full face of makeup on every single day or with a hard to maintain hairstyle. However, I still adore all things beauty and love trying and sharing the beauty products that I love on my blog and social media. I truly believe that when you feel that you look good, you feel good! Beauty comes from the inside out.
Another huge passion of mine is living an organized and simplified life. Trust me, friends, I’m far from perfect in these areas, but I have so much fun tackling new ways to organize my work, home, and life. My mantra is that a clean and organized space is the key to a productive and a clear mind. (So basically picture Monica Geller from Friends and that’s how I feel about cleaning- I love it!)
I’m striving for a life full of joy, purpose, and lots of coffee, of course. Most days, you can find me at home with my hair tied up in a messy bun, blogging and doing freelance work on the couch with my munchkin kitty, Benny, by my side. I’m basically a crazy cat lady, and if it was up to me, I’d adopt every cat that I came across (much to my husband’s disapproval. 😉
Here you can find weekly posts, inspiration, and practical tips on living a simplified, intentional life as well as a few personal posts and blogging tips thrown into the mix when I come across something worth sharing.
Blogging has allowed me to meet and connect with so many amazing people from all over the world, and has also become a part-time job for me. I’m super excited to get to know you, so please, subscribe to my blog and be sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest because I love connecting with new people and sharing my daily life with my followers. Grab some iced coffee and let’s chat!
