What I… Kate Botha from Wearing all my hats

There are so many wonderful undiscovered bloggers who write beautifully and share such lovely posts and, as a blogger myself, I realise it’s hard to find readers… which is why I started this What I… blogger interview series. To help bloggers find readers, and readers find bloggers that they resonate with. Not all blogs are meant for everyone. Many are very niche. But when you do find someone who speaks to you it’s a very lovely treat to step into their “screen” and connect online (and even offline). Today I’m happy to introduce you to Kate who writes over at Wearing all my hats.

She calls herself a regular woman nearing 30 who loves to write messy and honest thoughts on the expectations that drown women trying to multi-task as a wife, mom, friend, mentor, and house keeper!

Her blog is her space where she tries (and fails regularly!) to wear all her hats!


What I…


That God is real. There have been many times in my life when things have miraculously happened that would not happen just by chance. It’s hard to doubt God when He answers silly prayers that seem insignificant and unimportant. We have also lived without a second salary twice in our married life. And guess what? Despite the financial crunch and sometimes having under R100 in the bank, we’ve never gone hungry and have always been given more.


Apart from the obvious (God, my family and my friends) it’s chocolate without a doubt. I don’t think I have a limit. I haven’t reached it yet!


I wish I did. Enid Blyton was a firm favourite growing up and, in later years, Robin Jones Gunn. But honestly, I stopped making time for reading in high school and fell out of the habit so now seldom read. I’m slowly making my way through The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society at the moment. In all honesty, the only thing I regularly read is my Bible.


Lots of things. More time? I want to blog; I want to help my husband’s organisation Break-Free to spread the word about the harmful effects of porn; I want to play with my kids; I want to clean my house; I want more time to be a friend and mentor; I want more chocolate.


Anything pretty and feminine. Honestly, I wish we could wear 1950’s dresses every day with tight waists, flared skirts, red lipstick and gorgeous court shoes. What girl doesn’t love heels?


To trust God. I am a worrier by nature and I thrive on being in control. This Covid_19 situation has thrown us all for a loop. I’ve also struggled with OCD and the trigger for me is germs. So not being able to control germs is terrifying to me. This is my fear on steroids. I will live a much happier and fulfilling life if I am able to rest in the knowledge that Jesus has overcome the world and is still on the throne.

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
