About Me




I’m Katie, 26, & this is my little spot on the web for chatterboxing my hiney off! I call this my Sanctuary because a little while ago now (around six or so months) I needed a place to be; somewhere to be me, to be creative and to feel at home.

Here’s what I’m all about:

Lifestyle: From baking, to days out & adventures, to photography and nature – oh & I takeΒ a lotΒ of pictures. I’m a bit of an amateur photographer, and if you see me crouching down in front of a photogenic rose bush, don’t be alarmed!

Beauty: I am no expert, but I doΒ loveΒ beauty – whether it’s reviewing a new skincare product, showing off a bargain haul or talking about a new lipstick that I’ve fallen in love with!

Mental Health: This Sanctuary provides me with a place to talk about my mental health – it’s one of the reasons I started blogging in the first place. I suffer with anxiety & depression, so I talk about my experiences and document how I’m doing at the end of every month. It’s been so healthy and liberating, and I’ve met – and continue to meet – some incredible people through speaking up about it.

I try to post every Monday and Thursday, so join me, grab a cuppa & a hobnob *crucial blog reading accompaniments* & have a read. πŸ™‚

You can also find me on Instagram – @katscarlettj

Oh & I’m new to Twitter, so why not head over and tweet at me (that’s what you do there, right?!) – @katiessanctuary

Big kisses,
