Hello, I’m Katie, welcome to my blog! I’m Greek, I live in London, I recently turned 30 (still smiling) and am a mummy to a gorgeous toy Yorkie. We’re inseparable, we go to work, eat and even sleep together (well in the same bed that is)!
I studied economics at uni, then worked in investment banking for seven years before deciding that I needed to do something more creative. So, I resigned in 2007 (my dad is still reething…) and now own online furniture & interiors accessories boutique Coco Målé.
Interior design was always my passion so I love the creative aspect of the job. I also enjoy wearing many hats – buyer, stylist, photographer, PR, customer services assistant, packer (yes I pack!). Did I imagine that it would be 100% more stressful than my previous job? Not in my wildest nightmares… yet it is. On most days I love it, but there are times when I ask myself whether it is really all worth it.
In this blog, I write about my three big passions – DECORATING, COOKING (+ eating) and TRAVELLING and other things from my daily life. I also love (but won’t be writing about) rollerbladding, reading, listening to Greek music, the sea, the sun and biting my nails (am I sharing too much?!).
I first started blogging as a way to increase exposure of my online shop but nowadays, it’s more like a personal notebook where I jot down inspiring things that I find, places that I’d love to visit, post photos that I’ve taken, or share my culinary successes (and failures).
I hope you enjoy my blog and please join in on my ramblings!
P.S. I’d like to thank my hubby for sticking to his full-time job – having at least one proper paycheck coming in every month does take some of the pressure off…
