Ola Banana Launch

Ola Banana Launch

Hi lovelies and welcome back! Today we are going to talk about something special and quite important for us. If you have been reading our blog regularly you probably know that Kirsty has gone self-employed to make one of her all-time dreams a reality. Well today we are going to give you a little update on this project that now has a name: Ola Banana. Here we go!

Creating My Own Brand


We think the title speaks for itself here: Kirsty created her own brand. Ever since she can remember she always wanted to have her own company, little did she know she would take the plunge this early! But then, why not? She doesn’t have a loan to reimburse, she doesn’t have a mortgage on a house, she doesn’t have children and she was able to go back living with her parents. It seemed that everything was a sign saying “this is the best time to do this!”. So she did.

After a few months of paperwork, sourcing and doubting, Ola Banana was created. Ola Banana is a home decor/accessories focussed brand. As it’s still a baby the brand is only present on Etsy, but we hope that one day the brand will have its proper website.


Ola Banana: Products & Style

Ola Banana is your new go-to destination for cosy and cute items. If you are into hygge, Scandinavian inspired items & cute products, this brands will become your new favourite brand!ย At the moment you can mainly shop mugs (who can have too many mugs?), trinkets and tea light holders.ย Fingers crossed more products will be added in the near future!


In the meantime you can follow Ola Banana on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook for daily inspo & your daily dose of coyness, and shop the items on Etsy. Christmas is coming, we might have the perfect present you were looking for!

We hope you will fall in love with Ola Banana & be part of this (scary) adventure!

See you soon, love

Corinne & Kirsty
