Katia and her smoothie

Hello! 🙋🏻 My name is Katia and I am the person behind the Smoothie Fairytales website.

I’d like to share with you my story.

Three years ago I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.

At that time, I was working at a renowned advertising agency in Paris 🇫🇷 and had big plans for my future. However, life had prepared a different path for me. Suffering from horrible pains all over my body, I had to quit the corporate work and start a new life.

My boyfriend (now husband) and I moved to Finland 🇫🇮 where I started working from home as a freelance social media consultant. I knew I couldn’t have a “normal” job due to my disease and all of those ups and downs that come with it. So, working from home was the best option for me 💻🏡.

In the past three years I have learned a lot about myself, I have got rid off some attitudes that were making my life difficult. Hard times made me tougher and wiser. However, my eating & exercising habits are still my weak point and this is what, from now on, I am going to work on. This is the main reason why I started this website. By having this website I keep myself accountable. Hopefully, my determination to get healthier and eat better will inspire you, as well me, to take steps in healthier direction 🙌🏻
