About

Hey I’m Katie, a 20-something budget savvy blogger based in Milton Keynes

This blog of mine began in 2014 as a bit of a mish-mash project, and has since evolved into a place where I can share my love for all things travel, life and more.

The best bit? Everything I do is as budget savvy as possible – so whether you’re into booking cheap weekends away, saving for your wedding or just generally love getting as much as possible for your money – then this is the place for you to find a relatable read. 

Whilst you’re here, don’t forget to follow my adventures on Instagram!

More about Katie

I’ve spent my whole life living in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, which is where I currently share an apartment with my fiancé Darryl and cat Luna. We’re moving into our first house in the new year and I cannot wait!

As of October 2019 I work locally in public relations as an Account Manager, which follows a background of working in marketing and social media roles. It’s early days but I’m loving every minute of it. 

In my spare time (what’s left of it) I spend a large amount of my life searching for cheap flights, planning our 2021 wedding and watching the latest Netflix series. 

Fun facts? I’ve visited 30 countries, I studied theatrical and media makeup, and I could happily live off Mexican food and pale rosé for the rest of my life.

FAQ

What camera do you use? I use a Canon M50. I upgraded to this from an Olympus Pen E-PL7 and love it!

What’s your favourite beach destination? This is so hard to pick, but I’d have to say the Whitsunday Islands in Australia. I’ve never seen such fine, white sand in my life. Can’t beat a bit of Mexico either!

What’s your favourite city? It’s a really tough call between New York City and Barcelona. Both very different, I know!

What’s your favourite cuisine? I love Mexican and Turkish food!

What’s your favourite thing about blogging? I’ve always loved writing, so writing about my love of travel is something I enjoy so much. I also love taking photos and that’s a huge part of blogging!

Do you get paid to blog? At this point in time, no! I get a few gifted items but the only money I make from this website is from the ads and affiliate links.

How do you travel so much? I have a good amount of annual leave at work and I plan it VERY carefully to make sure I get as much out of it as possible. You can always fit little trips into weekends too. I wrote more on this here!
