Welcome I'm Kate and I like to tell tales.
My love of storytelling comes from my grandfather who spent many hours conjuring up narratives for me with little else but his powerful imagination. In turn, my father taught me the rule of thirds when I held my first camera. Equipped with the ability to capture and tell tales, my life of chasing inspiration and documenting everyday moments began. It eventually led me to create A Playful Day.
This is a space that I created as a reminder to seek every day moments that invigorate us and make our hearts glad. I made it so that I could exist and be seen, something that matters a great deal to this awkward girl with a big heart. I live in Edinburgh with my daughter and girlfriend and my passion is writing and creating in a way that helps every person feel safe and seen.
On the blog you will find stories and musings about life, recipes and projects I’m working on, personal or professional. On the podcast, I feature conversations with special guests that reflect on their passions, motivations and identity. From the very start, this place has been somewhere to collect thoughts and document things that bring joy and strength.
You are so welcome here.
A note for brands, companies and those looking to work together:
From time to time I accept paid collaborations and I can provide stats and figures upon request. These days though, I'm mostly funding my work via Patreon. If you're interested in working with me as a professional, you might wish to pop across to my professional pages; I'm a freelancer for hire.
All press requests should go via my contact page. Many thanks.
