The Things I’ve Never Shown Anyone

By | August 4th, 2017|Caitie Loves, Lifestyle, Living Creatively|

Hello, dearest friends, I wanted to write this while all of the emotions are still on the surface. ALL of the emotions. Because there is so much I want to say, and so much gratitude that I want to express. I'm not sure if there are even words for the depth of the emotion that I am feeling, but, I'm [...]

You are Enough

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

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|

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,

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 [...]

Dear Christie

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

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 [...]

The Shoes

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

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 [...]
