About

The Gist:

Fashion. Music. Design. Seattle. Lifestyle

Who am I?

My name is Katie.

I relocated to the Bay Area from Seattle and am recruiting in Silicon Valley! I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management at Seattle University, but academics aside, I am a dreamer and an aspiring “maker.”  This blog highlights little aspects of my life and things that just interest me. I am genuinely interested in and like everything that I write about. I am a recruiter by day and a blogger by night. When I’m not in “work mode,” you may find me at a local show, trying out new restaurants, or exploring my new city!

Tell me about the blog:

Yow Yow! was born January 2009 when I was entering my second quarter of college and was made for all of the students who needed something to past the time during lectures.

Okay, real talk here. It often times became difficult for me to converse with others because no one else was reading blogs or the same content I had been reading. I always wanted to talk about news and all of those things you see listed above. As a way to combat that, I created Yow Yow! so that my friends could then fit in with me. See what I did there? Yow Yow is my daily outlet and allows me to express myself in ways that I just couldn’t in the classroom or even anywhere else for that matter. Therefore, I put it all in one place. So far it has been a pretty interesting ride being able to learn about the things that I am reading while blogging and getting to meet some incredible individuals.

What’s a Yow Yow?!

The act of Yow Yow’ing is an expression or sound you make when you are excited! Yow Yow’s name was inspired by the lovely Sokina and all of her quirky phrases.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog!

    The temperature may be dropping, but just because the clouds are rolling in doesn’t mean you can’t still show your sunny side! Little Miss Sunshine is brightening up the fall fashion scene with a happy-go-lucky collection of vintage style tees. Playful and bright, topped with a touch of nostalgia, Little Miss Sunshine tops are the perfect way to express your personality during the gloomy days of the season.

    Ranging from $19.88 to $28.00, Little Miss Sunshine tee-shirts are available at http://www.junkfoodclothing.com. I’d be happy to send over samples or high-resolution images for consideration for upcoming fashion trend stories you may be working on.

    Looking forward to your feedback.

    Thanks!

      Hi Sandy!

      I don’t have an email for the site yet, but I’m working on it. I love those projects and most of them can be found in the tag cloud as “Time Waster.” They should all be listed there – hope that helps!

  16. I read your About Me section and swooned, ladyfriend. I am the same way with the design blogs and then my fiance asks me how my day went and I’m like you, “omg THREE of my favorite bloggers posted today!” He’s learned to just smile and nod. It is so, so nice to meet you! Would you consider doing an interview for my blog?! I interview local people who are just minding their own business being awesome.
