About Kate

I am Kate Beavis, and want everyone to design a life they want rather than what they are told to put up with.

I am a published author and writer on all things vintage. I am a midlife & menopause coach @fearlessat50 empowering women to fear less and be fearless in midlife and support you to “wear what you want at any age".

I run Magpie Wedding – helping couples create modern sustainable weddings.I also run The Indie Practice, supporting businesses with marketing strategies.

I’m a champion juggler!
