    Katerina Jane

    I can't seemingly sum up my profession in a mere word or two. I write, photograph, style, paint and explore, I just yearn to create. That is what I do, I create, whether it's through words, image or film, this site is a documentation of just that. You'll find editorial pieces, short stories, vintage finds and secret getaways all here, not just of fashion but of literature, art and history too. Don't be a stranger & I hope you enjoy my content. With love, Kat

    NOT ALWAYS BUSY, NOT ALWAYS FREE





    what i'm wearing

    top is calvin klein, leopard print wrap skirt from new look, nasty girl trainers, todd bag and michael kors necklace.






    I need to stop letting people assume I'm around at the drop of a text and be unapologetic for it. I've got a knack for saying no, but also saying yes. I know the more I let unnecessary guilt and presumptions lead the way of my decisions, that aren't always what at heart I'd like to them to be, the more others will walk all over me simply because most of the time I agree to things on, for the most part, their terms. Their time, their requirements and needs. It's most likely because I'm freelance, the underlying lack of respect of certain people have assuming because it's not a 9-5, that I'm then around whenever they are. Except I've allowed it. I always state, you pick the times, you chose, you let me know when, and so on, giving them full control, because "I can move my schedule around no problem", however I need a schedule, I should stick to it and have the respect for myself and career to do so. There's easy going, then there's too easy; it's not always that you then notice when you've given yourself too kindly to another that it's now expected and not hoped for, abused subtly at another's advantage. I suppose I just want to be around, I want and do make time, I don't want to miss out, but there's got to be a balance and there must be respect. Right?

    with love, Kat

    1. You're totally right! Finding the balance can be so hard - especially when people think you have a load of free time on your hands xxx
