Hello there, I’m Katie – a journalist, travel writer and editor. I contribute to publications such as The Independent, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Psychologies, Huffington Post, Metro and Jamie Oliver. If you’d like to learn more about my work, please visit my website here.

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy reading this blog, which is best enjoyed whilst sipping a margarita and listening to Nina Simone. Please feel free to leave me a comment, stalk me on social media or send me a message directly on katie@whatkatiedidnow.com or katiemonk06@gmail.com.

I’ll be adding more stories as I go, so stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by, and hopefully see you around.

I either travel independently or I take sponsored press/FAM trips to destinations. All opinions are my own, and my reviews are 100% objective, so if I include it on my blog or anywhere else, it’s because I think it’s good, and you will enjoy it too. Otherwise, it stays out.

In terms of collaborations and commissions, I can offer the following services either on my blog or elsewhere:

  • Destination and product reviews
  • Hotel reviews
  • Press trips
  • Sponsored posts
  • Paid campaigns
  • Product reviews
  • Consulting
  • Copywriting
  • Editing and proof-reading
  • Banner ads and links
  • Advertising from relevant companies
  • Social media promotion, management and takeovers
  • Branding
  • Brand ambassadorship
  • Website design
    You can view my media pack here – or drop me a line at katie@whatkatiedidnow.com to discuss. I look forward to hearing from you.
