THE BLOG

Hi there, I’m Kirsten (pronounced Ker-stin)! I’m pretty sure I was a rockstar in a past life and my taste in music and sense of style comes directly from that.  I’d describe my taste in fashion as rocker chic, edgy, boho, and a little western, so if any of those sound like your style – make sure you follow me and stay up to date with my posts! I’ve also been told I’d make a great personal stylist, so this is my own little way of sharing fashion finds with you. Along with fashion, I’m a huge makeup lover, which I think started back in high school when we had to do stage makeup as part of the dance team. I’ve also gotten really into fitness the past few years, so I try to keep active and make healthy decisions. I created this blog as another creative outlet to share my interests with others. These passions are definitely covered quite a bit here on my personal blog, so I hope you enjoy and are inspired!

ME

I’m a 30-year-old creative who was born and raised in the Midwest (Central Illinois to be exact). I’m currently located in Austin, Texas. I went to Bradley University for Communications, with a concentration in Advertising and a minor in Interactive Media. In addition to my marketing day job, I’ve run my own photography business since 2013. I love to photograph people, concerts, and pets, as well as do freelance graphic design and social media management. I was in the radio business as an intern in the promotions department, a part-timer doing any and everything (besides DJing, but I did do some commercials!), and eventually a full-time salesperson. This definitely fueled my love of music and the industry as a whole.
