Having always been a keen writer with a slightly nerdy fascination with the past, Katie originally studied history at Newcastle university. However, after 3 long years of sub-zero temperatures, endless essays and more partying than she cares to remember, she was ready to move to London to pursue her dream career as a beauty journalist.
After spending a year working as an assistant for a financial services company (it paid the bills), she managed to hook herself several wonderful internships at Grazia and Vogue before finally settling at the ever-so-fabulous Get the Gloss.
With a bit more experience and exposure under her belt, Katie confesses to have now developed a borderline unhealthy obsession for lipsticks and anything slightly sparkly. She spends most of her time arranging amazing competitions for GTG readers, (which she may or may not frequently try to enter herself) and keeping a beady eye out for the best beauty bargains around to ensure that neither her makeup bag nor her bank balance is running on empty.
When she’s not in the GTG office she can usually be found baking something obscenely unhealthy or shopping beyond her means, with a glass of Prosecco never too far from her grasp.
