Celebrating the Libra season with another constellation! I’m so obsessed with these and guess what. I already have a set of 12 for these ready to be sent for printing. More soon on our shop!
Oh it has been such a long time since i last posted here. I can’t hide the fact that i have stepped back a little bit from posting on my blog and that might be a regular thing from now on. There’s lots going on at the moment with design work, preparing our shop, posting my work on @cocorrina.co and working on a new website here that will host all of my work in one my place, in a cozy warm environment focused on more than my blog.
I shared one of my playlists yesterday on instagram that i listen when i work / design / illustrated / seek for inspiration. I’ve created one for every planet that inspires me and more, Sun, Earth, Moon, Mars, Magic, Cosmos, Feminine Power etc. So i’ve shared my very first one The Sun. You can find me / my playlists on Apple Music. Would love to hear if you have any recommendations for down tempo music!
I’m pinching myself since yesterday to believe that i’m really seeing my name on Anthropologie. This is real. Like real real! I’m so excited to announce that i’m part of a collaboration with Artfully Walls and my “Last Bougainvillea” is in a collection on Anthropologie. How awesome is that?
Here’s to dreams coming true!
I’ve been delaying this post for what feels (and probably is) forever. One thing is for sure, things change. People change, the way we live and thing all change. The past few months, i’m finding it really hard to post regularly here, mostly because i put all my love and energy on designing for my clients and my shop. This blog was what get me started in the first place and it will forever feel like my home. I can’t help to notice though that people just don’t read blogs regularly as they used to (back in our golden era).
So things, are about to change here. Change can be so scary sometimes, but without it bigger things can’t happen. If nothing changes, then nothing changes, and i know i’m ready for it. I won’t share our plans just for now, but it will definitely have to do with the construction of this page, a Cocorrina 5.0 layout. I will still be posting here, but i want my posts to be meaningful and when necessary instead of daily and random. Like, a new brand design project reveal, or a freelance life post, how my schedule has worked as a mom etc.
For daily posts, you can head to instagram where i’m posting almost every day. For personal @corinanika, for my art @cocorrina.co and for branding process and wips @cocorrina.studio
Here’s to change and growing to be better, changing where change is needed and listening to what our hearts whisper.
It’s getting really really hot here these days! About time i say since we have spent most of the summer with strong winds and showers so far. Jason’s baptism is over and we’re back on our daily routine with evening swims and life has never been so good!
Can’t wait to get receive all the images from the baptism and share a few here, the whole day was so dreamy filled with laughter and love and a little bit of crying from Jason’s side.
If you asked me what time i’m the happiest, i’d say sunset in a heartbeat. All the colours are the most beautiful during sunsets, everything is calm and in balance. It’s the moment of the day that you can actually see the sun moving and with it realise the constant movement of the earth and how small we are on it. Always dancing around ourselves even though we never notice it.
I did a small animation on this graphic over at cocorrina.co
You are magical and beautiful and kind and loving and loved. Capable of many great things, capable of love, capable to live the life you always dreamt. The body that carries you does the most beautiful thing and it’s beautiful as it is, just for hosting you into this world. The universe loves you and you are hugged by the light around us. Just wanted you to remember that you matter and that there’s nothing that should get you down today or any other day.
