Welcome to my little spot on the web. I’m Katie, 28, & this is my Sanctuary.

I call this my Sanctuary because a little while ago now, I needed a place to be; somewhere I could be me, somewhere I could be creative, write, babble, & feel at home.

Here’s what I’m all about:

Mental HealthFirst & foremost, this blog was created as a place for me to talk about my mental health; I suffer with anxiety & depression, so I frequently don my imaginary brave-girl-undercrackers & talk about my experiences, try to give advice where I can, and document how I’m doing at the end of each month in what I’ve come to fondly call my ‘Reflections’. It’s been so healthy and liberating, and I’ve met – and continue to meet – some incredible people through speaking up about it.

Life/Lifestyle: The little-bit-of-everything umbrella! Here you’ll find recipes for cakes & bakes, days out & adventures, ramblings about life, photography and lots of nature. I might also mix it up with a film or book review too! It’s a big umbrella!

Beauty: I’m no expert, but I do love 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, you can be sure I’ll talk to my heart’s content about it here!

I  post every Monday and Thursday, so join me – grab a cuppa & a custard cream *crucial blog reading accompaniments* & go point your peepers.

Big kisses,
