Hello and welcome to my page!
I am Katie Garrett as known as Katie Girl. I love all things with sparkle, smiles, and Starbucks!
I am a Nashville native, cardiac nurse at Saint Thomas West, Belmont University Alum, Enneagram 2w3, iced coffee lover (specifically Starbucks lover!), reader, writer, Orange Theory Fitness advocate, movie/TV show quoter, and most importantly a follower of Jesus Christ.
I have always been a very passionate person. Mixed with the fact that I love to talk and to write— especially on my passions—this blog began as an outlet to share all that I love and what allows for a joyful heart even in the midst of ugly or hard chapters of your story. In doing this, I hope to build others up with positivity and encouragement sprinkled in my posts.
Everyone has a “brand of beautiful” to offer the world, and by sharing my passions, I hope to facilitate others to find and chase their passions that flaunt that beauty.
Three focused passions include: the city of Nashville, faith in Jesus, and many different lifestyle topics including fashion, style, my nursing career and work in general, adulting, travel, books I enjoy, the Enneagram, fitness, family and friend moments, and more.
I am no expert at anything, and I do not write or share claiming to be. I am still learning everyday! However, I hope all that I am learning can be helpful to someone. In sharing these topics, tricks, and trades, I hope to help or inspire or help someone else.
We are called to be a fountain, not a drain, and I feel called to share my story and all that I am learning in the everyday.
I hope you will follow along with me on this journey. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, prayer requests, don’t hesitate to contact me!
*Let’s cultivate a spirit and heart of encouraging one another, celebrating each other’s stories, and living out your brand of beautiful in life.*
This is why I write, why I celebrate everyday, and why joy can be found in the mundane. And that’s what you can expect here.
Thanks for being here!
Nashville was recently named the “friendliest city”, and I believe it is because of how kind the residents are. I promote kindness through Nashville merchandise. Read more on that here. Those items can be purchased here.
