What I… Kate Kearney from Rupert Approves

This week I am pleased to share my online space with Kate Kearney, an ex-radio presenter turned blogger who became a mom in May!

Her blog, Rupert Approves, is a candid look at life in all it’s messy glory e.g. pregnancy, parenthood, pets (aka Rupert)

Read on to find out more about Kate, Carter and Rupert 😉

What I…


Is that I will never know enough. I think my thirst for knowledge is both a blessing and a curse. Sometimes it’s exhausting to be that person who just has to Google that dodgy actor from the 1970’s hit TV show

Oh, I love to love! There are the obvious ones of course, like my family, pets and my beautiful son. But I also love to draw, and read, and take photos, and blog, and meet people, and drink delicious wine and browse Pinterest with every intention of making what I see.

Before I became a mom, I took books for granted. I would spend hours downloading books off Kindle and reading everything I could get my hands on. Well, everything non-fiction that is. I love dark books, and have to rate “We Need To Talk About Kevin” as my all time favourite. Nowadays I read instruction manuals on baby bouncers and recipe books for pureed spaghetti, and when I have some free time I love to read other bloggers work. I’m hoping I find some time soon to start reading actual books again!

A house in the bush, and a house at the coast. A body like Kayla Itsines and a bank balance like a public sector employee. I want flawless ‘no need for makeup’ skin and boobs that haven’t suffered from months of breastfeeding. I want enough money to not worry about not having nice things, I want a playroom for my child and a personal assistant to do my grocery shopping and wash my dogs. I’d like to not have a status quo, for every living creature to be loved, housed and warm, for us to have never known Cancer and for animals to stop undergoing so much suffering for the sake of research. I also want to live in a country where I can walk the streets – day and night – and feel safe, a country where my child will grow up free from prejudice or fear and where I am inspired by Politicians. While we’re at it, I would like an endless supply of Diemersfontein Pinotage and a new 4X4. That’s not too much, is it?




I work in an agency so the vibe is less smart, more casual. My staple wardrobe always involves jeans and pumps, blazers and vests and dresses and scarves. sadly, I’ve had to trade in my sexy lingerie for more supportive sports bra’s. (And they say a moms life isn’t glamorous!)




More time. Please. 24 hours a day just isn’t enough!

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!
