What’s In A Name?

So I hope everyone had a good weekend.  I sure did.  Went to a nice pub on Saturday with the wife and got dressed up on Sunday.  I got to try on some outfits I had bought a few weeks ago, and we even got around to cooking a nice shepherd’s pie.  Anyways, I thought It would be good time to explain why I chose to call my blog Katie In The Hall.  When I was growing up in the 90’s I remember watching a TV show called “The Kids In The Hall”.  Read the rest of this entry


Products That’ve Helped Me

Over the course of the last year, I’ve found a couple of products that’ve helped me achieve the look I wanted.  One of those products is the “Maca Root Shave Cream” and the “Maca Root Razor Relief” lotion from The Body Shop.  I saw Jessica, from, review these products, and I decided to give them a try.

Here’s a lovely pair of pink platform heels by Steve Madden.  Come to think it, I don’t have any pink in my closet.  I think it has something to do with the fact the my wife is completely obsessed with anything pink, so I’ve tried to avoid it at all costs.  Although, now I think it would be worth a try, too bad the largest size available is 11.

5 Things I’m Looking Forward To in 2012

1)  Coming out to more friends.  I’ve told a few close friends about Katie, and have been comforted by their reactions.  As I get more comfortable with myself, and who I am, I’d love to let people into my new world.

2) Practice, practice, practice.  Be it applying makeup, or finding the right outfits that match my style and body. Read the rest of this entry

Coming out to friends

What is it about human nature that pushes someone to reveal something personal to a close friend?  Is it to explain your behavior to someone? To relieve the stress of holding something personal inside?  Sometimes telling someone that you are quite different can be a dangerous thing, since you might not know how they will accept the news.  Read the rest of this entry

Shoe Wednesday

I figure that in this blog I could have a recurring segment.  The first thought that came to mind was about the struggle for some to find the perfect heel.  Here’s a pair of lovely Bordello Teeze heels from Pleaser.  I actually ordered these once in a size 12 (largest size made) and they didn’t fit.  I had to sadly send them back. 😦  The search continues…..

I Love MAC

Here’s a few things I got from our local MAC counter over the last couple of months.  I’ve made a good friend there and the makeup artists are so helpful to someone like me.


Early on in this amazing journey, I would often ask myself the same question, why?  Why do I have these urges to express my feminine side to a greater extent than most others?  As a guy, I’ve never really felt sexy or attractive in guy clothes.  I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that guy clothes are, to me, quite plane and boring.  Shirt, jeans, sneakers…..zzzzzzz.  Read the rest of this entry


I’m loving my new Nine West platform heels!

It’s so much fun dressing up

Trying out a new outfit and practicing my makeup.
