About the blog and Cathie

”Miss Cathie” is a Canadian lifestyle blog written and edited by Cathie Maud from the unique perspective of a girl with many interests who also happens to be a military spouse and mummy.  Cathie is an English Lit student who is always seeking new adventures to write about and share, be it on fashion, books, travels, fine dining, pregnancy, parenting, and random things that catch her fancy.  Because of her link with the military, she started out as a Vancouverite transplanted to Vancouver Island, and then ended up in the nation’s capital, Ottawa, where she is still doing her best to stalk come across Justin Trudeau.  There is always the possibility of a posting every few years, and this means that she will most likely find herself in interesting, off-the-beaten-path places.  However, whether located in Esquimalt, BC or Cold Lake, AB, or gallivanting around Europe, Cathie is confident and determined that she will find all things fine, delicious, and chic to share.

Her approach to style summed up:

“I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”
— Coco Chanel

“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard,think quietly, talk gently, act frankly … to listen to stars and buds, to babes and sages,with open heart; await occasions, hurry never … this is my symphony.”
–William Henry Channing
