I’m Katy Thomas; I’m a Melbourne based Product Stylist, Creative Director behind The Eye Spy Milk Bar and I’m a Mum to two little girls (Cleo & Olive). I’m a design enthusiast with a passion for interior decorating and affordable styling. After many years working in the PR, Marketing and Advertising industries across a range of fashion and lifestyle brands, I was exposed to the wonderful world of style and design. Fashion PR stole my heart for almost 8 years, taking me on a journey of gorgeous clothing, fashion parades and showings, photoshoots, media launches and endless piles of glamorous magazines.
Whilst I’ve always loved the fashion industry, I started to develop a strong passion for the home- From interior decorating and design to shopping for homewares and furniture. With an inbox overflowing with design inspiration on a daily basis and home magazines knocking on my door each month, I knew I had to set out on a new adventure and follow my passion. From here, The Eye Spy Milk Bar was born.
The Eye Spy Milk Bar Home, Kids and Lifestyle blog launched in September 2012 as a way of documenting my loves, sharing fabulous finds and delivering a little slice of affordable styling inspiration to your inbox each week. After the birth of my 1st daughter Cleo, I found I needed a creative outlet and started styling up our home more often than I visited the supermarket. This hobby was becoming far more addictive and I decided to share my pics on Instagram to show just how easy it is to style your home without having to sell your right arm to so! From here the business has naturally progressed and allowed me to follow my passion for product styling (and the icing on the cake is being able to do it from the comfort of my own home!).
I’m also a Homewares Editor for I Heart Bargains, sharing my favourite finds under $100.
I hope you enjoy your visit and leave feeling inspired.
