Thursday Treats: Because Spring

Kat

April 16, 2015

Ahh Spring, it always makes me want to clear up, clean things and get my shit together! So what's been going on this week? Well, not much in terms of particularly exciting activities... unless you count organising my desk exciting. I mean I know *I* do. I've cleared the meaningless clutter, surrounded my computer with crystals and candles and put a vision/ inspiration board on the wall. It's all looking very pretty and colourful I have to say!

Thursday Treats: David, Britney, Sequins and Silliness!

Kat

March 12, 2015

Last week I spent five glorious days in Las Vegas. While a lot of people claim that a couple of nights in Sin City is more than enough, I couldn't disagree more! I had a great time and could have stayed for a month! I'll be writing all about my trip in epic detail soon (including sharing all about the David Copperfield and Britney Spears shows - both were incredible!) If you're planning to marry or honeymoon in Vegas you are in for a treat.

Thursday Treats: LA or Bust!

Kat

February 26, 2015

Hey beautiful! This update comes to you from a very sunny, very lovely Venice Beach. Try not to hate me too much, I am here working - I promise! This weekend sees the first live Blogcademy workshop of the year and I can't wait. We've got a cute venue, some awesome d├ęcor items (perfect for Instagrammin') from Touch of Magic and 20 eager beavers ready to learn all about blogging. If you're a bit of a last minute Larry and you'd like to come along we can still fit you in. This is our only US class until September so if you're considering learning with us in-person, hop to it!

Thursday Treats: Ready for Some Sunshine!

Kat

February 19, 2015

It's hard to believe that this time next week I'll be in LA where it's currently 25 degrees Celsius! I'm there to teach the first Blogcademy workshop of the year and we're staying right by the beach which is just what my sun-starved skin needs right now! If you'd like to come to our first workshop of the year (and our only US class until September!) we still have a few tickets left. You can read all about what we teach and book your spot right here.

Thursday Treats: London Edge & Finding ‘The One’

Kat

February 5, 2015

Another month has come and gone and we're now heading head-first into February. January was a particularly epic month for me with the launch of the print magazine and The Blogcademy Online!! While tooting my own horn might be terribly embarrassing, I do have to say that I am so incredibly proud of how both these ventures have been received. I've worked my little bloggy butt off over the past few months on them both, and so seeing the amazing reaction from you all about them is quite amazing!

Thursday Treats: The Most Insane Week of My Life!

Kat

January 15, 2015

Last Thursday was just a little bit of an exciting day for me, which meant I totally forgot about Thursday Treats. I would say sorry... but, you know... I published a goddamn magazine so its more of a case of #sorrynotsorry actually! Last week was an utter whirlwind. The comments from those of you that got your mitts on a copy were unbelievable and very, very overwhelming. So thank you so much for that. I'm so glad you all love it as much as I do! ALSO, issue 1 sold out online in just FOUR DAYS!!

Thursday Treats: Signing off Issue One!

Kat

December 18, 2014

It's just one week until Christmas and I got the BEST gift of all yesterday. I went to Giraffe Media HQ, the publishers of my new magazine, to sign everything off and send the first issue to print! It was very The Devil Wars Prada but much more friendly... I arrived and was presented with 'The Book' - a mock up of how the magazine will look in a binder. Flipping through each page made it seem oh so real. I can't bloody believe this thing is ACTUALLY going to be in the shops! Issue one hits the shelves on January 8th and will be sold in WH Smiths, Morrisons and some independent newsagents. If you can't find a copy locally, or you're not in the UK, you can also purchase a subscription online (details of which I'll be sharing as soon as it's ready!) OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS ALL TOO EXCITING, roll on January 8th!

Thursday Treats: Home Alone

Kat

December 11, 2014

It's been on a two week hiatus as I've been travelling so much over the past couple of weeks, but Thursday Treats is BACK with full force! I got home early on Tuesday morning. My flight (Auckland-Sydney-Dubai-London - OUCH!) landed in Heathrow at 6am and I literally RAN to customs to be first in line to get through. It's not that I just hate queuing, but because I had only a couple of hours until Gareth was hopping on a plane himself to go on a ski trip with my dad and sister! We had just over an hour together when I got home. I lay in our bed as he packed around me and we chatted about all the silly things married couples chat about. I missed him SO MUCH during my jaunt down under and having to say goodbye again was totally sucky, but I am so grateful that we did at least get to see each other.

Thursday Treats: Vivienne Westwood and Heading Down Under!

Kat

November 20, 2014

It's that time again. It's the week before I go away on a big Blogcademy trip and I'm trying desperately to write and pre-schedule three week's worth of blog content before I hit the road. Something weird has happened to me this time though. Usually, I chain myself (metaphorically speaking!) to my desk, and bash them out easily. It takes a long time, sure, but I'm a nerd and I usually always get them all done with a few days to spare.

Thursday Treats: Roll on January 8th!

Kat

November 13, 2014

I know it's terrible to wish your life away, but I gotta say I am SO VERY excited for next year already. This week the release date of issue one of the new print magazine was confirmed. It'll be hitting the shelves on January 8th!! It's being stocked in WH Smith's, Morrisons (with other supermarkets TBC) and independent newsagents up and down the UK! International readers, fret not, you'll be able to subscribe online. WAAAAH serrrrrrrrriously, I think I might just burst with excitement. I still can't believe this is actually happening!

Thursday Treats: Practising What I Preach

Kat

November 6, 2014

Going from the past month or so of absolute chaos to this week, which has been relatively quiet, has been odd. That's not to say I haven't been keeping myself occupied (that magazine and this blog ain't gonna write themselves!) but I've said no to every invitation, turned down meetings and spent 99.9% of my time in my house, wearing sequinned sweatpants. Last week I wrote about how being busy and 'in-demand' is not an indication of how valuable you are as a person, and I've been trying to practice what I preach.
