Guest Blog: Kelsey Barker

Hey everyone, 

My name is Kelsey and I’m a 20 year old uni student and Social Media expert running my own Social Media marketing agency. I wanted to share some insight into my uni life, business, youtube (yep I have a channel with two of my best friends) and share some insight into my style. 

Uni life

So this is something i never thought I would be talking about as it just wasn't ever something i could imagine myself doing. However, 2 years ago that all changed when Mitch somehow convinced me to do a Fashion Marketing degree with him. I must say that without him convincing me to do it and actually putting myself through some extra studying I wouldn't be in the position I am today. I feel grateful that I have found a passion with social media and business and been able to start my own at such a young age. Looking at my uni experience I have grown massively as a person and learnt so many amazing skills which I wouldn't have learnt if I didn't put myself through it. 

Work life

So pre Lockdown I was a visual merchandiser and had been doing this alongside my studies for the last 4 years. However, in November 2019 I decided to launch Catching Creatives which is a Social Media Marketing agency focused around all things creative. The thought behind the brand was to create something to support small businesses with all things creative. The services I offer include, Graphics Design and branding, content creation and content management with all the services being tailored to your business budget and needs.

The Girls Group Chat is the ultimate place to be on the internet talking about all things fashion, beauty and  lifestyle. Creating a channel was something I have wanted to do for a while and decided with two of my best friends we should just do it. Bringing together three different girls with three different viewpoints and one main aim of bringing real life experiences to the internet. From fashion faves to chatty boy talks, we have been covering a complete range of topics and I'm super excited to see where we can take the channel.  Come and say HI over on the channel: The Girls Group Chat. 

What I have been wearing

I wanted to share some of my favorite outfits I have been wearing throughout lockdown. I have been trying to actually put clothes on daily but sometimes that just doesn't happen (Lockdown life). If I’m being real, joggers and a crop top have been my go to, but comfort is key, right?
