A glimpse into my past
I’ve always had a huge passionate interest in fashion since a young child. I would dress up in my grandmother’s scarves and fur coats with my sisters and pretend that we were unstoppable beautiful royalty! Hey girls can dream 😉 My grandmother was a model and a fashion illustrator and that’s where I inherited my love of fashion.
In my past life, after many trials and error on what I “wanted to be when I grow up” I finally transitioned into a fashion buyer for a retail corporation. I was living out my so-called “DREAM JOB”. I thought it was everything I wanted! I was living in Texas and thought my job was going to be so glamourous. After many long days, that flowed into long nights. My dreams of the glamorous fashion buyer life were slowly getting plucked away one by one. I am utterly grateful for all the opportunities I had, but always felt like a piece was missing. So, I started my little blog! I had so many friends and family asking where I purchased items and how I styled them so I created a site where I could store all of that information!
Well, when the fashion industry started to take a turn, I found myself unemployed and wondering what the heck to do with life!! I grabbed my laptop, and rebranded my whole entire website! I knew it was time to take my dream of a blogger and make it into a reality. After, long hours, sheds of tears and moments of joy, Christine Marie was born!! It was the happiest day of my life. When they say things happen for a reason, I truly believe that. If I did not find myself unemployed and wondering what to do next, I still would be sitting at a desk job that I was not happy with!
Today, I can share the happy moments of my life, including fashion and beauty finds, tips and tricks, traveling, and how to live a more fulfilled healthy lifestyle. On the alternative, it’s a space where I can share life moments that are a glimpse of reality and the ups and downs! Let’s get real, life isn’t perfect and I would never want my readers to think mine is. I’ve had a lot of rough patches that I smoothed out along the way and continuing to do so!
I’m so thankful to be able to meet new girlfriends online through this space and connect with brands that at one point I only dreamed of working with!
Thank you for stopping by and I would love to hear from you. Feel free to send me a message on any questions, suggestions or collaborations.
