Meet The Blogger #1 ~ The Kats Paws...

Today is the start of a new feature here on Things The Books Forgot where each month (hopefully) I'll be introducing and interviewing a new blogger. I really wanted to do something to help out other blogs like my own and introduce you to some amazing bloggers you may not have heard of before. So I really really hope you enjoy this as I'm super excited about getting to work with some lovely girls, and please let me know what you think!


First up in my Meet The Blogger series is Kathryn from The Kats Paws


 What inspired you to start your blog?

I love shopping and beauty products, and people would always ask me where I got something from or what I would recommend product-wise, therefore I decided to start a blog as even if I help or inspire one person, then I have achieved something.

What’s your favourite thing about running your blog?

 I think the whole blogging community is brilliant - it is like having thousands of new friends, who are always happy to help if you have a question or a problem.

Who is your favourite blogger/the blogger that inspired you most? 

I love Sprinkle of Glitter, as she is so genuinely lovely, and manages to be a young woman, a Mummy, a blogger, and much more, and still manages to inspire me every single day. I was lucky enough to meet her last month in the car park of a play centre and she was so kind to me, even though I was interrupting the time she was spending with her little girl Darcy and fellow You Tuber Jack Howard.

What is your favourite type of post to write? Why?

I quite like to do Get Ready With Me posts as you then get to do a full make-up routine, and it can be as complex (i.e. skincare, cosmetics, eyelashes) or as basic as you like. I also like to read these types of posts as they inspire me to try new products or trends.

Who inspires you most? Why?

Generally speaking, my parents inspire me the most. I was adopted at 3 months old and my adoptive Mum had cancer three times throughout my life, and my childhood was still filled with love and fun. My Mum died when I was 17 and although it was a hard time, my Dad and I got through it, and he has been there for me so many times when I have got in trouble or needed my Mum.

What is your favourite shop? 

My favourite shop is actually an American shop called Bath and Body Works, as it has so many amazing smelling candles, shower gels, body spritzes and much, much more. It is also pretty cheap and does products that I have ever seen anything similar to in the UK. I go to Orlando for two weeks on 26th April and so I will definitely be stocking up!

What item of clothing are you longing for at the moment?

I don't know if this counts, but I am really wanting one of the new Kate Spade scallop bags - luckily they have a Kate Spade outlet in Orlando which sells everything so much cheaper than over here so hopefully they will have the scallop bags there. Clothes-wise I don't really need anything at the moment as I have been doing plenty of holiday shopping lately - lots of pretty dresses, and cotton pastel coloured blouses and tops.

If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take 3 things with you, what would they be? Why?

Ooooh this is a hard one - a lot of people tend to be clever with this one and say things that would help them get off the island, but I would say my kitten Millie as she makes me super happy, my phone as I cannot live without it, and a lifetime supply of contact lenses so I could see where I was going!

What’s your main goal for the future?

Just to be healthy and happy. The world we live in can sometimes be quite a horrid one and this can have an affect on us. After a really bad relationship last year, I now suffer from anxiety attacks and so I am concentrating on being healthy and ensuring I can be as happy as possible.

What’s one piece of advice you wish you could give your younger self?

Just to not worry what other people think. I was so obsessed with being the nice girl when I was younger, pleasing everyone but myself, and at the end of the day, they will just walk all over you as a lot of people these days are only concerned about themselves, which I think is really quite sad.
