What you will find in my blog........

Kirsten Regel

So when I first started out on my journey of opening up my store, I had actually started down the path of blogging first. I have a background in marketing/advertising/communications as well as community investment and I love to write. English Language Arts was always my best class by far in high school and University, tied with History and gym.....(math not so much!).

So I began writing blog posts but didn't have a place to put them........until now.

When I was writing, I wrote about travel...because that is everything to me and I have traveled across North America and backpacked Europe with plans to travel to Asia in the future! I also wrote about fashion, being a mom and things that I have gone through in my life. I have had an amazing and beautiful life so far but I have also been through some very tough things and for me talking and sharing has been a path towards healing. And hopefully sharing some of the things I have gone through will help someone else.

STAY TUNED!! Topics I will include in future blogs include (in no particular order):

On the lighter side of things.....
