What I…

I know that at the moment I’m doing the very best I can… but it doesn’t seem like it’s enough. I know I have a lot of my plate with my day career in social media, and my photography business and my family… but I know I can do what I set my mind to do, and I can’t work out what to stop, so I’ll do it all!

I love watching and listening and taking photos of things that matter, to create memories. I love spending time with my family, who are growing up way too fast. I love walking our huskies, Kimo and Kitara. I love Johannesburg… this crazy city we call home. I love running… that’s my latest love which was a little unexpected, but has become so very part of who I am.

I read a lot of blogs… I use Feedly to keep up to date with all of them, and they’re sorted into subject matter for ease of use. I read personal blogs, learn on photography blogs, get inspired on design blogs, and keep up to date on trend and digital blogs. Other than that, I read trashy novels on my Kindle app on my iPad.

I want more time at home with the kids, before they’re too big. I also want to travel overseas and do more renovations on the house and to get more photography equipment.

I hate corporate dress codes! I always wear flat shoes now… life’s too short for sore feet, and guaranteed the day I’m in uncomfortable shoes, is the day I try take photos in an awkward place. Other than that, I tend to wear a lot of dresses and skirts during the week in summer… and this winter I’ve been loving my leggings instead of jeans.

I need to go on more holidays, and have time on weekends to spend time on me! I need to take more photos that matter.

Kathryn Rossiter

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!

  1. Short and sweet and definitely to the point! That’s my girl 🙂 Always striving forward!! Very proud of my daughter and love her to bits
