Dear Anxiety.

I know that I have written a blog post about my anxiety before, but I actually wrote this post during the mental health awareness week but for some reason just couldn’t bring myself to post it. This isn’t an in-depth post of me telling you how to handle your anxiety or how to overcome it, this is just me sharing my thoughts and experiences because I know that the younger Katharine would have really needed to read something likes this many years ago.  so here it goes.  Growing up I always felt a little bit different to everyone else, a lot of the friends I grew up with always shared the same carefree attitude I longed to have, nothing seemed to worry them never mind stress them out, where I was the complete opposite. I would worry about certain things that I really had no business worrying…

STEP INTO SUMMER WITH PAGO

So spring has finally sprung and even though the weather here in London hasn’t been doing us any favors, these last couple weeks things have starting to look up! we have had a good few sunny days and that always gets me into the spring/summer vibe. The clocks went forward so that means its lighter for longer so I won’t be leaving work feeling like I’m waking up in the dark and coming home in the dark. And when this time of year hits it usually doesn’t only change our moods but it also changes much more, the way we want to dress, the things we want to do and even down to the things we want to eat and drink. So more this week than ever I’ve been super grateful with the package I was kindly sent by the people over at Pago juices, and…

Blossoming In Spring | Why I Quit Blogging For A Month.

Sometimes things can get tough and we lose our motivation to continue with the things that we would have once done without even thinking, and that’s ok we are only human at the end of the day. Things like writing a simple blog post seem like the impossible and then when we don’t do these things that once seemed so simple we beat ourselves up over it and that makes it even worse. This month has been difficult for me not just through personal issues but with my blog, I completely lost motivation with it, it started with me comparing myself to others I wondered why I wasn’t on the same level as other people, why wasn’t my blog doing as well? why was I losing Instagram followers quicker than the change in weather? wasn’t I good enough? was I just wasting my time? I also think…

My Top 5 Beauty Products I Couldn’t Live Without.

I am a bit of beauty enthusiast ill have you know, I love being daring enough to try all different types of concoctions on my skin, even though it doesnt always thank me for it.. breakouts come back to remind me I have made a very big mistake, and also my mother is there to do that for me, she is constantly begging me not to put that ” crap ” as she calls it on my face, she will always tell me I have beautiful skin and im only going to ruin it with the amount I put on it, what with the “all the make up I wear” my mother ladies and gentlemen she really is a gem. And over the years yes I have come to realize that certain products just don’t work for me and of course, everyone’s skin is different and different…

Introducing The Banging Bad Gal Bang Mascara.

Mascara has always been my weakness, I am always on the lookout for the new most incredible mascara I have spent countless amounts of money trying and buying new mascaras. I am not a fan of false eyelashes and I’m not that keen on getting eyelash extensions, even though they look incredible on everyone else I just don’t feel brave enough to have them myself. So the more a mascara can lift my eyelashes the better, I’ve tried everything from drugstore mascaras to high-end mascaras and although I have found some good ones along the way I haven’t had anything quite like the Bad Gal Bang mascara from Benefit. A few weeks ago my Cousin who works at John Lewis was telling me about it before it was even launched and how she had already pre-ordered it and how excited she was to give it a try, and…
