I’m so privileged to be Ella’s first ever blog collaboration 🥺 You saw my half earlier on in the week, and I thought I would reblog Ella’s half because it’s absolutely beautiful ! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did 💕
What are your goals for the week?
And best of luck achieving them 😉 I believe in you! My goals for this week are to contribute fully and give my best efforts to online lessons, get out of my comfort zone and post more chatty stories in Instagram, plus getting out for some fresh air every day!
Blogmas day 5! Today I’m sharing an old guest post of mine (on Millie Button’s blog). The content and tips in there are still so relevant and I hope you enjoy reading it.
Happy weekend everyone!
https://in.pinterest.com/pin/311663236709416443/ Hello everyone! Today’s blog post is actually a collab with Kitty Jade, also known as Erin! She has an amazing blog and I’ve written a blog post for her environmental series she’s created! These are all recommendations, so please listen to your doctor/pharmacist over me. If you require certain products for your skin based […]
Never did I expect a few months ago to be sat here writing my ‘face reveal’ blog post.
Yet here we are.
And this is me.
I don’t really know what to say. Am I scared? 100%. But will this create more opportunites in the future? I damn well hope so!
In the coming months I wish to experiment more with video creation on my IGTV, including a collab that will be going up very soon with my internet best friends. I had to do a face reveal before the launch of this exciting video, and there’s no time like the present. Creating videos has been a passion of mine for very long and being able to channel this through platforms like Instagram has been playing on my mind. With such ventures, I would prefer to share my appearance. So goodbye anonymity…
Thank you so much for your support and encouragement on this long journey…
Cheers to a new chapter,
Any negative remarks or comments about my appearance will be removed. Please use the comment section to share love and not bullying. Thank you ❤
I’m pretty excited – I don’t know if you can tell!
This year I’m committing to blogmas. 24 days of content up until Christmas day. The media is going to be saturated with Christmas content so it would mean a great deal if you could read mine. I will also make sure not all the posts are festive because quite a number of my followers are Muslim or not religious at all 🙂
Excitingly, there are going to be a few collabs coming your way. At the moment I have scheduled one per week!
Over on Instagram, I will be posting frequently: every Saturday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There is an amazing IGTV coming your way too which I can’t wait for you to watch. Experimenting with video making this month is going to be a priority.
Tomorrow I’ll be greeting you with the first *official* day of blogmas which is a Christmas playlist.
I hope you’re ready for all the content I have planned for the next 25 days.
Hope you are all well. I’m looking forward to catching up with you all in the comments. When the academic year kicked in, I took an unannounced and completely needed hiatus from blogging. School had to take the front seat and I am still focusing on my studies as a priority.
However, I have missed you all.
I have had this platform since I was quite young and it has evolved as I have. We started out this journey together under the alias Kitty Jade which, since today, has been archived. I make it sound like I’ve lost a friend but it isn’t that dramatic. My content is changing, I’m growing up, and it seems sensible for this blog to grow with me.
Let’s address the elephant in the room, shall we?
New logo, new name, but underneath it is still me: Catherine.
I spent quite a while deciding how to incorporate my name into my online identity but eventually found Cath Jane would be perfect. The username is available on all platforms which is great, and it means there’s no more confusion with people calling me Kitty! Kitty Jade was this character I took on when I was fearful of the large expanse of Internet. It was a little safety blanket.
Teenage years are a time of change and three years doesn’t seem long, but for me it’s a lifetime. Back when I revealed my name in lockdown I knew there was change looming on the horizon. This just feels like the right decision to embrace myself! To be completely, unapologetically me!
One night I was watching Bake Off when I came up with my logo idea. Yellow is my favourite colour so I went for an in-your-face shade! Hope you don’t find it too distracting. I will be working on a website banner but that’s less of a priority at the moment. Because you can’t have a blog without content!
I did promise a few collabs with certain people that I aim to finish and send off soon. Collabs are going to take the backseat because I’m finding it hard to stick to my commitments! (CEO of signing up to too many things) I will however, be relying on your kindness and willingness to be interviewed. I will make a constant effort to reach out to big names and companies and ask if they wish to be involved in a climate change discussion/interview in my Plastic Plan series. The Plastic Plan is always a work in progress and the name is also subject to change to a more inclusive one. Climate Change With Catherine, Catherine’s Take, Zero Waste Wednesday?
That is all I have to offer today! November is the month for me. Schedule to be decided but the break has rejuvenated my creative mind and I’m so excited for what lies ahead! I may already be dreaming of blogmas…
Thank you for waiting patiently throughout the past few months as I have been silent on my blog and social media.
