Hi! I’m Kate Austin.
If I could describe myself in one sentence: I’m a 25 year old vegan lesbian who loves all things fashion, travel, home decor and beauty and never says no to a glass of (red) wine and/or a hoppy beer.
In 2008, I started a blog on Tumblr to upload my pictures that were too inappropriate for Facebook. I continued uploading photos there to have a permanent place online to keep memories and photos I took over the years. Then in 2014, I came out to the world and shared that I had a girlfriend! I started using my Tumblr to document our relationship, the struggles of coming out to a religious family, getting kicked out, and all of the things in between.
Sharing my story gave so many other LGBTQ+ teens a safe place. Being able to help other people going through something similar to what I went through is why I use social media. We all feel so alone but we are all SO much more alike than we even realize.
I wanted to create this blog as a place where I can not only share my relationship and coming out advice but also my vegan food favorites, my beauty tricks, my (baller on a budget) fashion advice and so much more. I love traveling, cooking, make up, decorating my apartment and sharing it all with the world.
My dream is for this to be a place where anyone can come and feel at home. Grab a cup of tea or a glass of wine and come in, look around and let your walls down. I hope I am able to inspire you to live your life as authentically as you possibly can and do anything that makes YOU happy.
Be kind to one another <3
