Katie Sargent Life In Bag


Ok, your #LifeInBag flat lay exposé*. In 1 sentence, please explain.

My clients often comment that my bag is like a Mary Poppins bag; pens, notebooks, measuring tape, samples. Who knows what you’ll find.


Sparro is a testament to high flying females known for their love and dedication to work, and working out. But also…to the one who may have been known to arrive at the gym with her top on inside-out (or backwards – sometimes both). Sound familiar?

Unfortunately yes. I often seem to forget my socks at the gym, however mostly I take my dog Maggie for a walk and listen to  podcasts or catch up with family and friends back in London (if it’s early enough!). It’s a curse of always wanting to multi-task, even when exercising.


We love working out for many reasons, but mostly because a solid sweat gets us offline, sharpens our focus and gives us the confidence and energy to smash some serious life goals. Tell us about your current targets (career, life or otherwise).

Well, its not the sexiest goal, but honestly, my main goal this year is to move out of the family home. My design studio is kicking small goals in its infancy, but the goal is to be sustainable enough to support myself in the real world.

For my sanity, I also need at least one holiday a year, no matter how small. I’ve just booked a flight to Bali which I am really looking forward to. One major lesson I have learned since stripping back basically everything to start this business is that when you start drip feeding the little luxuries back into your life you enjoy and savour them with renewed appreciation.

There are other work goals, so many, but for this year those goals are focused around delivering some epic designs which will delight my clients and produce beautiful imagery.


The daily workout. AM, PM or somewhere in between?

Summer - early morning walks. Winter, I tend to do classes in the PM.


Your #LifeInBag breakfast of champions looks like …

God I struggle with breakfast sometimes, but my Nurti Bullet is my saviour and green juice is always on the menu. I love a poached egg and avocado.


Canned tuna for lunch on the go. Legendary, or LEAVE IT BEHIND?

I love tuna, but eating it out of a can on the go - can’t say I’ve done that.


Seriously smart, understated, Scandi-style design gets our wings flapping. What destination, space or event has recently inspired you?

The Slow in Bali looks amazing, I am looking forward to checking it out when I am there next month.


Any amazing products, brands or things you’re loving because they ‘ease the load’, minimised tailspins or saved you from ye old form-function compromise?  

My laser measure saves me so much time when on site, however I always have my trusty traditional tape measure with me at all times too.

My highlighter pot from Mecca gives me a glow even if I have no other makeup on. 

My Classic Sparro Carry-All in black - it comes everywhere with me for work.

I Know The Pilot - get on it and get out there!


Simple words of wisdom to other Sparro fans looking to mirror your success?

Mum always says to me ‘do what you love and the success will come’. I have a blind faith in myself and my business and a genuine gut feeling that it’s going to work out. Do you have that?
