About Me

Welcome! Croeso! Hello! Shwmae!

About Me: I’m Katrina, the writer and founder of this little corner of the internet which began in 2018. By day I’m a Marketing Manager in the hospitality, travel and tourism industry. Whenever I would go to networking meetings and say that I am a marketer, the first thing I would be asked is, “how can my business be found online?” Of course, I said by blogging. So, I put my money where my mouth is and started my own blog. Now, tourist boards, restaurants and hotels work with me.

Tips for the overworked professional. Work with Me

Cardiff – Local Travel and Staycation Blog

I love writing articles about my hometown and life in Cardiff, things to do, where to eat and drink, and its history. As well as a little further afield into Wales and other travel and staycations I go on.

My rescue dog, Ivan the Irresistible, also loves adventure. So, you’ll often find him by my side. He’s a street dog from Bosnia, and according to the DNA test he’s a husky, collie, labrador, German shepherd. He LOVES other dogs (even the ones that don’t like him!) and is getting more confident with people. Follow his adventures on his own Instagram account.

If you hadn’t already guessed, I LOVE FOOD.  I’m happiest when I’m either making a mess of the kitchen trying out new recipes or eating out whenever I can. Food is important to me; it has to be homemade, local produce as I’m a self-confessed food snob. I’m a cider drinker, spiced rum enthusiast and bottomless brunch addict. On weekends you’ll also find me match side cheering on Cardiff City Football Club or the Welsh Rugby Union team.

Finally, I often share beauty products and make-up reviews for those aged 30. And have been known to pass on marketing and blogging tips. Or, share my opinions on the current news.

Multi-Award-Winning Blog

Real Girls Wobble started as an outlet to document my life, thoughts and feelings. Along the way, others have found me and enjoy following my journey. So lucky, in fact, in December 2019, 2020 and 2021, I was awarded Best Guest Blog Post at the House 21 Blogger Awards.

Travel and Lifestyle Blog

Press Trips

Whether it is a day trip, staycation or a week away to a new country, I have the flexibility to accept press trips throughout the year. But, I offer a range of coverage from social media, to blog posts. I can even write for other blogs – such as tourist boards and media outlets. 

I welcome sponsored blog posts if it fits my audience, especially because it is a product or service I believe in. It could be a blog post, banner advertising, competition or link insert. However, if this website is not relevant, I have others.

I love to create long term partnerships with brands that I admire, or blogging has allowed me to discover. I am currently working on an ongoing basis with Jolie Beauty for make-up reviews and Schwartz, creating recipes from their herbs and seasonings.

Social Media

I automatically offer a level of coverage on my social media when invited to events and press trips. Ideas include social media promotions, including Twitter chats, Facebook posts, Instagram grid or stories to help create a general buzz for your brand or campaign. I can also “take over” on your social media and handle this with the utmost professionalism.
