#BEDM stands for Blog Every Day in May. A challenge a fully expect to fail, but at the same time am determined to give it a go. Even if that go is occasionally half-arsed.
BEDM sets topics and ideas for posts for every day of the month, and whilst I already know some of my posts won’t adhere to the list, I also know it’s all for fun really, and none of it is set in stone.
The first post topic is about introducing yourself. Now, I know I blog sporadically at best, but I also think by reading previous posts you can find out a bit about me. That said, I’ll still introduce myself.
Hello, I’m Kat! I work as a freelance/contract UX designer – basically this means I make the web an awesome place to be. I love creating things – be it websites, apps, experiences handmade goodies, beautiful photographs or delicious food.
I live in London – hence the blog name – and I love this city. It’s a big ol’ tiring stressbag sometimes, but those “oh wow” moments make it worthwhile. Mostly.
As mentioned, I work as a web designer, specialising in UX. UX = user experience, so one could say I design experiences. Except, I wouldn’t say that, because I think it’s somewhat inaccurate. At the end of the day, I try and make products, apps and websites that are a joy to use, that feel intuitive, build trust and loyalty, and that people want to keep using.
Part of my job involves creating wireframes like this:
And I have a portfolio up at www.katskii.co.uk
I’m also a crafter, I love to knit and crochet, cross stitch and sew, do origami and other paper crafts. I made this:
Perfect for nap time (another of my favourite things).
I love to eat, cook, bake, and continuously inspire myself, food-wise. My ambition is to have my own recipe book someday.
I recently got back into making my own dough, and pizza, from scratch.
And finally travel. I love to travel, photography my journeys as I go.

I want to be happy, and work hard at it (the world doesn’t owe me diddlysquat – a girls gotta make it on her own!), I’m happiest when I’m with my boyfriend, and we’re cooking together, and I feel safe and content.
Tomorrow, let’s talk about adventures!
