"Forever remain curious, refuse to remain unremarkable."

My name is Katie Oldham, and I'm 23 year-old writer, life enthusiast and young creative.

Scarphelia was born on the 1st January 2013, for one sole purpose; because I was done with being unextraordinary.

I want to make a difference, to create a little world that makes people think, to inspire people to open their eyes to just how wonderful life can be if you choose to acknowledge it. I want to seek out the unexpected extraordiniaries of the world and share their tales for all to hear and learn from. I want to travel and discover, adventure and excite, to illuminate a whole new perspective on life and to make the most of every day spent alive. I want to try and fill others with this same passion and enthusiasm that I sometimes feel is on the brim of overflowing from my very bones.

I want to stand up and shout 'This is what happens when you choose to live your life!' -  and so I started a little blog to share my perspective with the world.

I am a living breathing human being with a set amount of days to my name, and I refuse to let that time slip away from me.

Welcome along to the whirlwind, boys & girls. Welcome to Scarphelia.
