hey, i'm kat

here are some random facts about me

I code stuff. I also design stuff. My biggest aspiration is to make an impact on the world through technology. My favorite food is ice cream. My drink of choice is a vodka soda w/ lime. My best friend is my cat named Swift- ten bucks to whoever can guess what she’s named after. We’ve been best friends ever since I adopted her via Uber on a day they partnered with the Nebraska Humane Society. She’s been playing fetch and cuddling with me ever since. My creative (and most bank-breaking) outlet is definitely shopping. Two friends and I started a clothing company called Mauve almost a year back. I wish I could say it has saved me some money, but unfortunately, the addiction has continued to prosper over the years. I love to travel. One day I hope to visit all seven continents- only two more to go: Africa and Antarctica. I’m a typical millennial with an unhealthy addiction to Hulu and Netflix. I had a near death experience when I was 15. Ask me about it sometime. I’ve been a pro at putting fake lashes on ever since I was seven. I danced competitively for over sixteen years of my life (hopefully that helps clear up the fake lashes thing). When I was 15 I got to put a “1” on my golf scorecard. That was pretty cool. My favorite day of the week is Taco Tuesday! Because tacos and tequila are the most glorious combination. I LOVE surprises. If I could be anyone, I would be Wonder Woman. I couldn’t agree more with Taylor Swifts career choices. Knowing I’m here for a reason gets me out of bed each morning.  I’ve always believed good character, lots of grit, and a big heart will get you wherever you want to go.

Enjoy. xx

About The Achiever’s

Threes are self-assured, attractive, and charming. Ambitious, competent, and energetic, they can also be status-conscious and highly driven for advancement. They are diplomatic and poised, but can also be overly concerned with their image and what others think of them. They typically have problems with workaholism and competitiveness. At their Best: self-accepting, authentic, everything they seem to be—role models who inspire others.

The Meaning of the Arrows (in brief)

Omaha’s Coffee Gems

As a busy college student who also works 25-30 hours a week, you can imagine I am pretty dependent on caffeine. Finding great spaces to get work done and enjoy a coffee is a necessity. Recently, I’ve had friends ask where the best coffee shops are in Omaha. Because I’ve become so familiar with several around […]


December Favs | Makeup, brushes, & more

Recently people have been asking me what I do in my spare time. After thinking about it, I realized I spend SO much time on YouTube watching makeup tutorials and may/may not have my Sephora VIB Rouge for next next year already (sorry mom!). I’m not sure how many can relate, but I absolutely positively […]


I got a Motion Lens!

Say hello to my new Moment lens! For awhile I’ve been looking for portable equipment that I can take to California this summer in order to keep filming for my WOT blog. Without a firm handle on what was happening, I reached out in hopes of being able to try a lens. They said they believed […]
