SEPTEMBER'S GUEST BLOGGER: SOPHIE WRIGHT, OWNER OF CAFE MIAMI
This month we'd like to introduce you to an inspiring young woman, Sophie Wright. Sophie runs Café Miami in Hackney, East London. The girls and I decided to write a post on her spot, so once we got there, Sophie and I got to talking whilst I was taking pictures of the place, to make sure she was ok for me to snap some shots for our post.
As we were chatting I found out she used to work in fashion herself. So I naturally became curious as to how it really is to get out of fashion and do something completely different, to open your own café. Be your own boss! I imagine many of you lovely lot out there are hired to work somewhere, maybe even at a company that seemed to be your dream at the time, or maybe somewhere truly awful. At a place that isn't for you at all, or it used to be, but not anymore. Well here you go, maybe Sophie's story will be the little nudge you need to start a completely new life!
I'm aware of the fact we've already done a blog post on Ccafé Miami, where we've shared a little bit of how it all started for Sophie, I'd still like to quote some of what she has shared with us to refresh your memory! ;) If you'd like to see the full post, click HERE!
Keep your eyes peeled for up coming posts where she'll give you tips to make your life easier if you were to open your own place, as well as how different life is post "fashion".
THE THOUGHT BEHIND THE MENU
ALL ABOUT CREATING ATMOSPHERE
What's also great about Sophie is that she is very hands on, I could barely get a minute to quickly snap a few pictures of her while I visited her last week to talk about our collaboration. :) It's of course very busy and stressful at times to run your own place, especially if you are running a successful business like hers. It was quite full on the whole time I was there, so I decided to snap some pics of Sophie working away to keep myself busy. She does have help some days, but there is still lots to do as you can imagine.. We'll of course go into more details in future posts.
Please don't forget to follow CAFE MIAMI on Instagram, we find it very important to support emerging businesses!

I hope you are as excited as we are to find out more about her journey!
