Hi, I’m Kate

I’m the founder and editor of The Small Things Blog, an educational and empowering place to learn about how to use beauty products, put together easy and timeless outfits, or find inspiration for taking care of yourself.

My background is in professional hairstyling, and I used my blog as a tool for sharing video hair tutorials when I worked behind the chair. These tutorials ended up being helpful for more people than only my clients, so I continued making them and the blog grew into a top destination for hair tutorial videos.

Since that time, I’ve expanded into more beauty demonstrations, shared some personal style, and generally approached the site as a place where I can share the beauty and style things I’m into with friends.

I'm a mother of 3 wonderful children, and happily married to the love of my life named Justin. We live in Raleigh, NC though my roots stem from outside of Chicago, Illinois.
