Hey there. I’m Taru Salokangas and I am the person behind Mona & Saga. I started blogging back in 2010 under a blog called Sort of Pink to catalog my inspirations. Back then my focus was mainly in interiors but as blogs often reflect you're lifestyle and situation in life, so it has been with me. Now with Mona & Saga I mainly write about DIY, small business, children's clothes, events and also the thing that started it all; home decor. 

I am a Finnish girl - born and raised, but I also have a background living in different cultures and places as I have lived in England (London & Lincoln), Denmark (Kolding) and at the moment we are located in Southern California (Irvine) with my husband and daughter.
