Hi, I’m Kate! I’m married to Justin, two sons named David and Luke, and am an avid collector of cats. I only have two at the moment, and we named them Grits and Gravy. Yes, like the essentials of a southern breakfast.
My blog is best known for the video hair tutorials that I started in 2011. I originally made them for my clients to reference, but after a pinning a few to Pinterest I learned that they were actually helpful to more people than I could imagine. Over 100 hair tutorials later, The Small Things Blog has become primarily a hair and beauty blog.
I owned an independent private hair studio, working behind the chair, for 8 years. I locked the doors and handed over the key just before David was born. Now I stay home with the boys and have the pleasure of writing on the blog during the week.
Although the content may focus on superficial things, I don’t believe that is where self-worth comes from. I’m a Christian and am so thankful to have a relationship with the Lord. We attend a great church in the area called The Summit.
Originally from outside of Chicago, I got tired of being cold and migrated down south. I’ve lived in North Carolina for 7 years and currently call Raleigh home.
I love chocolate cake and lipstick. Oh and I always have bobby pins and hairspray in my purse. You know, in case of emergencies.
