Behind The Blog Scene // Corina Nika of Cocorrina

When first looking at Corina's blog, Cocorrina, I'm not sure which strikes you first - the incredible design, her honest words or the lure of her island lifestyle. Perhaps it's a deadly combination of all three but whatever it is, it's magic. Take me there...

Reading her blog is enough to make me want to come back as a graphic designer in my next lifetime but it's her humble and down to earth nature that really captures you when you get a chance to chat with her.  You may recognise her work from Pinterest where her images are shared around the world but what struck me even more than her popular designs is the wisdom beyond her years and her sense of organisation - this girl could teach me a thing or two about having a clean desktop! 

If you are not yet familiar with her blog well trust me that's about to change. Enjoy our chat below and then take a few minutes to head over to her blog and Pinterest page - just don't say I didn't warn you.
