Get to know me
My name is Catherine and welcome to my little floral, chalk painted, tea dress wearing, shabby chic corner of the internet. This is my place to share my love of all things shabby chic, my DIY tutorials and home projects, my vintage style fashion posts and home ware hauls.
I started blogging back in February 2014 after purchasing my first home, I originally wanted to blog about fashion but as I only ever wear dresses (hence the name) I didn't really have a direction, then that spring I had attended some furniture painting workshops and then my love off all things craft and interior blossomed and became really popular.
So then I became more confident in my blogging abilities as I had a bit more of a direction.
I still share my outfit posts but I stick to what I love which is adorable tea dresses and outfits with a vintage flair. I have also started to share more personal posts on my blog as I grow and learn as a person. I have added a travel and places tab on my blog too so I can share posts on the cute places I visit.
Blogging is my hobby and I do work full-time as a retail manager which at times it can be hard to stay consistent with blog posts, I also love to make my crafty items and teddy bears after work too, I also love making my handcrafted items for you too and thank you for keeping me busy, for more info click here.
If you follow me on Instagram you'll know who Blondie is, she might pop up in a few posts on the blog as she is a fan of the camera and likes to photobomb the odd picture or two.
As my blog grows I aim to stay true to what my blog is about so I will always disclose at the bottom of my posts if an item was sent to me or if I was paid to promote and item. As tempting as it is to take free items I always only accept items that I love and would genuinely purchase myself.
However at the moment Blondie the cat gets sent way more items than I do but hey she is #instafamous after all.
This year I have been delighted to do some collaborations with Laura Ashley, Marks and Spencer, Dorothy Perkins to name but a few, if you are interested in collaborating then drop me an email by clicking the contact form and we can chat.
If you want to know more I have a fun 20 random facts post if you want to read a little more.
Feel free to contact me with any questions and you can find me over on Instagram and over on Snapchat (@daintydiaries)
Look forward to hearing from you.
