Hi, I am Catherine.
My good name is Catherine, like Catherine the Great – This has to count for something I think.
And in the event that you have no idea what I’m talking about, feel free to google the meaning of Catherine. From the urban dictionary (not from me) it describes Catherine as a beautiful funny, beautiful individual. A ray of sunshine and role model all around.
I choose to stick to the above description.
At the risk of sounding outlandish…welcome to my style diner. Here is where we (together) whip up and serve some stunning looks, if I do say so myself. But we do layer our stylish flavours with quirky, light-hearted nuances, brought out perfectly by notes of mutual care. In short, we’re the relief to your fashion itch, and we’re also here for the positive vibes of shared love.
This blog was created to highlight my transition from a single girl to a step mum, who is admittedly enthralled by all things style & fashion.
Frankly, step mothering is one of the most difficult tasks, with challenges and difficulties that are rarely recognised, understood or appreciated by anyone aside from those living that reality. It is for those who choose to take on the step mothering challenge even when it scares the hell out of them. I hope my blog can offer real and helpful life lessons and a space for sharing, support and celebration.
This blog also showcases my style evolution over the years.
I share with you how my love for fashion has helped me get through my greatest adventure yet: thriving in a blended family and finding a peaceful and glorious stepmother’s happily-ever-after.
And incase you’re wondering, I am a step mum of 6 children, and a kick-ass wife of the man who makes it all worth it.
It would be important to note that this is my story, not the story of my step children or their mothers. That is theirs to tell if and when they choose to do so.
I hope you have a blast turning the pages!
