Chris/Kris Talks

ChristinaKristin Talk

We are wrapping up our four year anniversary celebration this month on the 9th, exactly four years and one month from the day we started this blog in 2012. It was a little rough this year trying to get things in order after a three day festival we participated in at the end of June.  We haven't even gotten to have a celebratory toast yet, so we are giving ourselves one more week, to get it done. Lets start with our annual ChrisKris Talk interview! We asked you to help us with the questions for each other. We combined your questions with our own. We hope this gives you the insight you were hoping for.

         Kristin: What has been the best moment of your life so far? 

 Christina: Anytime I’ve been asked this question I have the same answer. Living in NYC has by far been the best moment of my life.

Kristin: What is your number one regret?

Christina:This answer coincides with the first question, leaving New York too soon is my number one regret.  Although things happen for a reason, I always wonder how my life would be if I had stayed.

      Kristin: What is the best style advice anyone has ever given to you?

 Christina:This wasn’t necessarily advice, more like scolding and it’s related to grooming. My grandmother was very particular about nails, she would always say “If you’re going to polish them fine, but when that polish starts chipping, take it off or don’t wear it at all. All of your nails need to be the same length make sure they are filed.” Because of this these days I very rarely polish my nails, and I cut them short and even.

     Kristin: What is the one thing you have a hard time throwing away?

 Christina: I have a hard time throwing away magazines. My obsession is much more under control these days, but I still have many magazines from the late 90’s to early 2000’s.

Kristin: What are some strange places that you shop for fashion and have found cool items?

Christina: The sex store, yes the place where you buy vibrators, oil, etc. I find stylish leotards, tights, gloves and lacy socks here.

Christina:  What's your philosophy in life?

Kristin:  I'd say my philosophy in life is our motto.Be blessed! Be free! Be fashionable! To me the moto means to enjoy your blessings, being free to be creative and happy and I  believe that with everything we do in life, it should be done in style and with style.

Christina:  What's one thing that people always misunderstand about you?

Kristin: People think that I am mean and weird. Lol. I claim the weird. Most creative people have really different personalities. I CAN be mean but I am usually very warm and accepting of others. I am just really honest about things that people don't always want to hear. I also wear my thoughts on my face. If I don't like something or somebody, most days my face will give me away. Again, I think that is a sign of honesty. People see those things as mean.
Christina: What's on your bucket list this year?

Kristin: I really did not make a bucket list this year but one thing I hope to do is finish the Columbus Ale Trail. I have so many lists of places I want to go and things I want to get done, I just hope to cross off items from my last three seasonal lists.

Christina:  If you could style or make jewelry for anyone in the world who would it be?Why?

Kristin: I would love to make jewelry for Solange. I love her style. 

Christina:  You go on many adventures in Ohio, what place has been your favorite?, or 
where have you found the best items?

Kristin: My favorite Ohio adventure changes all the time as I explore more. It was the Lake Erie area like Put in Bay and Port Clinton, it's been West Liberty, Ohio and now recently,  Toledo. I just visited Toledo last month for the Fourth of July weekend. I went to their beautiful zoo and checked out the original Tony Packos and a local brewery.

I have found the best things in antique shops in Circleville, shops in Berlin ( Amish Country) and in a place called Timber Tunes in Johnstown.

Until next time,
Be blessed! Be free! Be fashionable!
