Hey there folks,

Welcome to KTMY; living the chronic life

I’m Katie, a twentysomething girl from the middle of nowhere in Cumbria and currently tackling the city life in Manchester. KTMY was a place where I used to come and write about fashion and beauty to get away from my law degree however since having life changing surgery in 2015 it’s become so much more. This has become a place where I share my experiences with a chronic illness and hopefully help some of you also living the chronic life!

As well as my love for blogging & writing, I have a little shopping addiction and a big love for Disney and Harry Potter. You’ll often find me binge watching series on Netflix or heading to different restaurants and coffee shops eating all the food and cake I can find. I love cooking and baking (stay tuned for recipes coming soon), curling up with a good book (thrillers & YA being two of my fave genres) or heading to the cinema to see the latest films. I have an ever-growing obsession with musical theatre and need to head to the west end more to see some of my faves.

Stay tuned in 2018 for a new kind of vibe to KTMY. I’m launching Chronically Living which is to show that life goes on after being diagnosed with a chronic illness. The aim of Chronically Living is to share my advice & give tips to make the most of good days and make the bad days more bearable. From January, there will be a monthly newsletter (which you can sign up to here) which will focus on different elements of life with a chronic illness.

I hope you like what you see with me & the blog and I hope you all have a good look around and a good read. If you’re wanting to keep up to date with my adventures, don’t forget to follow me on all my social media channels and feel free to pop me an email at katie@ktmy.co.uk.
