When going through a divorce, Katie gained a lot of weight, like many people do during a tough life event. Soon after, she found confidence and a self love that she found surprising. This meant she felt able to wear different kinds of clothes, and style herself in new ways, reinventing her look.
This led to her starting her very own fashion blog, called The 12ish Style, that is all about looking great whatever size you are. She put a lot of work into it, hiring a professional photographer, and writing a lot of posts. This blog became her escape, as she channelled all the pain, upset and frustration of her divorce into creativity
