the story

Established in 2014, is an online destination developed by Kathleen; a digital content creator and social media manager from Scotland.

This little corner of the internet has become a collection of content covering all things life related after I chose to use my platform to help, support and empower others. Main topics include life, wellness, mental health and minimalism, and within this you’ll find content on the likes of self-development, wellbeing, depression & anxiety, simplistic living, and ASMR.

I strongly believe in creating a life you love and spreading positivity and kindness; which I hope comes through in the content I publish. 

Living A Life With…
In 2016 Living A Life With… was launched and is home of the more private aspects of my life that has not been shared anywhere else before, including living with an invisible illness. If you want to read more about that, you can do so by clicking here.

The story behind the name - “the five is silent”. 
Why KA5THLEEN? Well, I’ve been a huge fan of Vanessa Hudgens for as long as I can remember and when I heard she was one of the main characters in the up and coming movie Bandslam back in 2009, I couldn’t wait to see it! Long story short, she played the character of Sa5m, “the five is silent”, and I used to think it was the coolest thing ever. Not long after, I sort of adopted the concept across social media and soon @KoolKat17 became @KA5THLEEN. Little did I know after five years of what only started as a username, would be the start of something new (😉); a new journey, something much bigger.
