You are Enough

By | July 28th, 2017|Caitie Loves, Living Creatively, New Arrivals, Off the Bench|0 Comments

You've always compared yourself to other people, haven't you? I mean, you're the first person to tell others that 'comparison is the thief of joy'; but, you don't follow that advice, do you? You look around you, at the people that you think are prettier, thinner, successful, in love, happy. But you don't look at yourself; not really anyway. Because you're [...]

Twenty-Seven

By | July 25th, 2017|Caitie Loves, Lifestyle, Living Creatively|2 Comments

Twenty-seven. Even typing that sounded old. I can't believe that I'm twenty-seven-years of age. I mean, I realise it's not that old. Not that old at all. But looking back at the past year, so much has happened, and I have changed in more ways than I can count. So, am I happy to be older? Yes. Not because I'm [...]

A few days in Lisbon

By | July 11th, 2017|Caitie Loves, Lifestyle, Living Creatively|0 Comments

Last week, I was lucky enough to have a little break in Lisbon. As is always the case, when I'm with my favourite people, it was perfect. Ph. @ David Murray We walked, we talked, laughed so hard I'm confident at least one of us peed a little... (I won't name any names... Okay, okay, it was probably most definitely [...]

Dear Ali,

By | June 21st, 2017|Caitie Loves, Lifestyle, Living Creatively|16 Comments

My dear friend. You didn't know this at the time, but you can into my life during a really dark time. I was unwell, I didn't leave the house much, and I spent so much of my time alone. I'd started to feel isolated, and useless. My life didn't feel like it had much meaning. I felt like I lacked [...]

Finding my way home

By | June 6th, 2017|Lifestyle, Living Creatively, Off the Bench|0 Comments

This week, I found my way home. I moved into my very first, and very own studio. It's been a long time coming, but, it has been so worth the wait. To my people: you got me here. You held me up when I couldn't stand on my own. You've been there, through it all. You've seen my darkest moments. And [...]

Dear Christie

By | May 16th, 2017|Caitie Loves, Lifestyle, Living Creatively|0 Comments

You were never sure of yourself growing up, were you? You saw yourself as living in someone’s shadow. But, to me, you were never, ever, anything other than the brightest star. We moved a lot, and each time, you became a little less certain. We were both bullied, you and I, and it always hurt more to think of people [...]

Telling your story

By | April 29th, 2017|Living Creatively, Off the Bench|0 Comments

One of the things that I love most about what I do, is that I get to tell stories. I get to tell stories with words that are sometimes hard to find. Sometimes the words in my chest are too big to write down. They're sometimes too big to feel, too. And when those happen, I let my hands tell [...]

The Shoes

By | April 21st, 2017|Caitie Loves, Fashion, Lifestyle, Living Creatively|1 Comment

Last week, I became cool. For the first time in my life. 'Did you?!' I hear you ask. Why, yes, yes, I did. It was a funny thing, because I'd always imagined that someone else would have had to verify my 'coolness' in order to make it so, but, instead of being someone, it was something. The Shoes. I'm a [...]

Eat, sleep, create, repeat.

By | February 24th, 2017|Uncategorized|1 Comment

It's been a week here at When Caitie met Soda. I have had the honour of making some beautiful pieces for some truly beautiful souls. It's funny, but no matter how many times I make something, I never tire of the process. From start to finish, making jewellery, for me, is akin to a true love story. I begin work, optimistic and hopelessly [...]

Living Creatively: Babette Marie

By | February 22nd, 2017|Living Creatively|9 Comments

Last week we spoke about creativity, and how we are, every one of us, creative beings. I was truly overwhelmed by the amazing response to our post, and loved talking to so many of you over on our social platforms about your views on creativity. What a beautiful community we have here, in our little corner of the World Wide Web. I had [...]
