Hello!

Hello!

WELCOME TO KATIE WRITES
I'm Katie. Welcome to Katie Writes, a blog that I started back in 2014 to ramble about makeup. In the past five years things have evolved and these days I tend to talk about lifestyle a lot too, with a bit of photography thrown in for good measure as well!

I'm based in the beautiful county of Derbyshire in England. (I also write a separate blog about Derbyshire too!)

Still feeling nosy? You can find more about me by clicking the button below! Plus, if you don't know where to start around here, you find some of the most popular posts on the New Here? page.
