Hello my lovelies, today I’m talking to Katelynn, a 27-year-old mama to 2-year-old Sweet Girl and 7 month old Pip. She’s married to her best friend and together they live (with their dog) on a very special piece of land near their home towns in Saskatchewan. Katelynn blogs and has started to dabble in YouTube, as well. Mostly, though, she’s a mama and a homemaker. Katelynn says watching things grow is such a precious gift. She talks about how caring is the best advice and she lets us in to her secret product for her skin.
What were you doing before blogging and how did you get in to it?
Most recently I was babysitting. Before that, my “career” was a sales rep for a major Canadian grain and crop inputs company. I do miss a lot about the industry, but have no plans to go back any time soon. I got into blogging (this time around) after being inspired by one of my childhood besties (tayloronatrip.com) and realizing I have a lot to share and want to help other mamas.
What’s the best thing you’ve done so far within your blog?
I’m really enjoying doing giveaways, but the most exciting thing is connecting with other women and creating a community.
Best advice you’ve ever been given?
What do you do in your spare time?
Blog, haha. Technically most of my time is “free time”. I run our household and that’s my hobby. Gardening, landscaping and interior decorating would be the top 3.
What is your favourite and least favourite part about blogging?
Most favourite – writing and connecting with others on twitter
Least favourite – all the tedious work like SEO, automations, etc.
Favourite beauty brands?
I’ll share my favourite secret for nice (face) skin. Dove bar soap. Just trust me.
Hmm may have to give that a go.
What is a typical day in your life?
Wake up and have a bit of me time, get the kids dressed and fed once they wake up (8-9), play and do chores, lunch, blog while they nap, supper, family time and bath, a few chores, work on the blog, bed.
What one product couldn’t you live without?
My homemade deodorant!
Ooh I’m intrigued!
Three words to describe you
Honest, ruthless, funny.
How would you describe your personal style?
Super lax with aspirations for a whole lot more.
Best advice to bloggers.
Never stop learning. Use every opportunity to network and create connections. Ask everyone what their one challenge is. CARE.
