About Me and the Get To Know Me Tag

Hello lovelies, since I have finally updated and given my blog a refresh so, I thought I would write a little bit about me for new and old followers to find out more about me!

If you haven't already guessed from the name of my blog, my name is Katie, I am 22 years old, from Greater Manchester and graduated from University in July with a degree in Illustration*. I love all things Sixities; especially the fashion (oh hello mini skirts and colourful patterns), music and interior design. I spend the majority of my time drawing and spending time with my lovely boyfriend and my family.

*basically creating images to decorate or help clarify & explain something may it be in magazines, books, animations and online.

So, let's crack on with the Get To Know Me Tag questions
