Hey everyone! I thought I would start my blog out with an introduction of who is behind The Basic Beauty Blog and tell you a few things about myself!
My name is Katie and I am from a small city in southwestern Manitoba, Canada. I have been a hairstylist in the industry for almost eight years and fall more and more in love with it every day! I own a local hair & nail boutique salon with my two business partners Jill & Brittany. It’s such a fun and rewarding career to be in; I get to work with inspiring young women as well as make my guests feel their absolute best.
I met the love of my life while working at our local Montana’s cookhouse. I was a hostess and he was a server; the rest is history! Marty has been the greatest support in my journey. From an apprenticing hairstylist working two jobs, to a journeyman hairstylist (still working two jobs), to a booth renter, and now just recently a salon owner (!!!!) he has been with me through it all. I owe my success to him indefinitely.
I love travelling and seeing the world and am so excited for our next adventure! Marty and I are heading to Australia for two weeks on Friday — stay tuned for some travel tips from yours truly! Exploring new places and seeing the world is a huge part of my life, it’s where I draw a lot of my inspiration from. It’s so refreshing to see and do new things especially with someone you love.
Marty and I live in our home with our beloved rescue dog, Hud. We picked Hud out at our local Humane Society almost two years ago where Marty instantly fell in love with him. Rescue dogs are seriously so amazing, the progress Hud has made in such a short time makes me so happy!
I grew up the youngest of three kids. My mom is an LPN and my dad hauls livestock. They have been married for over 40 years! Goals. My older brother lives in the same city as us with his wife and two boys. We will be visiting my sister in Australia (yay!) as she has been living there since February. I also have two awesome younger brother-in-laws. One who is engaged to an incredible young woman and has two young boys. I seriously love being an aunt! It is so amazing to have such a unique bond with each of our nephews. I can’t wait to watch them grow up into little gentlemen.
This is my life in a nutshell. I am so excited to get this new project going, thanks for joining along with me!
