My name is Katie Hodges and above all else, I am a Christ follower. I am a pastor’s wife to my sweet husband, Michael, and I love all things fashion + makeup + food. I am the oldest of three girls, and I’m obsessed with my family + friends. I am a Texas native (from Houston) and moved to Alabama when I was in middle school. I currently live in Birmingham, Alabama and am a freelance hair + makeup artist.
I’m sassy, outgoing, and I love to make people laugh. I love things that are simple, practical, clean, and fun. I love people (the sassier the better), makeup, shopping, laughing, coffee, home decor, laundry (believe it or not), being outside, and walks. I’m dancer and also an avid water skier.
I would describe my fashion as girly + classy with a hint of edge. My home decor is traditional with a few modern twists. Honestly, that’s the way I live my life — I’m traditional at heart but enjoy unpredictability and spontaneity.
I have actually had this blog for four years but made every excuse in the world to not go for it. I’m finally just doing it, and it’s honestly so freeing! I do not care how far it goes because I’m doing this for me because I need a creative outlet and a practical way to connect to people (and if you enjoy it, that’s an added bonus!).
My life has been far from perfect and has not always gone as planned. But my hope is that this space is a place where you get a real glimpse into my life and leave feeling encouraged, knowing that it’s okay for life to be imperfect. My only rule on here is to be YOU. Be confident in who you are. There is no one else in this world like you — embrace it. You were made perfect just the way you are! Life can be so much fun if we keep our chins raised high and laugh through the not-so-perfect everyday life — enjoy!
