Hello, I’m Christine. I’m a 30-something chick that lives in the Bay Area, CA. I was born and raised in San Francisco. Perhaps, one day, I’d like to venture off to a new city, but I’m proud to be a native of “The Bay” and really can’t imagine calling anywhere else home.
I’m a workaholic at my regular Monday through Friday job. Thankfully I have a lot of hobbies to help me stay balanced and take my mind off of work.
And that’s where Christine Cre8s comes in. What is Christine Cre8s? “Cre8s”?? Yes…as in Creates. Christine Cre8s is about “Creating the best life possible for myself and sharing it with others via health and fitness, art, atmosphere and everything in between.” It was a way for me to start sharing all of my hobbies and interests and connecting with like-minded people.
I’m a HUGE Disney lover. I’m a runner- I have ran and completed in 6 half marathons so far. I love to crochet. I like to scrapbook and do crafty things. I love a wide variety of music and movies- live concerts and advanced movie screenings are something I frequent regularly. I’m a foodie and love all kinds of food and trying new dishes as well. I love working out and staying healthy- I’m a free online health and fitness coach and love to help people reach their health goals. I love sharing random bits of my life via photos. I love volunteering and giving back. I love positivity and being around positive, go-getter people. And I love connecting with people who share my wide variety of interests.
I used to blog privately on a regular basis but fell off of it when Twitter and Facebook started becoming part of the norm. I’m a social media nerd and have connected with so many great people thanks to Twitter and FB. Some of my real and true friends have started thanks to connecting via social media. Putting out a real blog and putting forth the effort in it has been burning a hole on my to-do list for quite some time now and I’ve always put it off. 2013 is time for new beginnings and I’m going to take the plunge and finally get my blog out there. So here we go…..
Diggin it: the color orange– I actually love all colors except for pink (BLEGH!), cupcakes and dessert, sushi, my grandma’s tamales, paranormal investigations, food trucks, Halloween and Christmas, Apple products, new running gear and shoes, bags- no seriously I’m a bag lady, reading, chocolate and Pentel RSVP black pens.
Not so fond of: long lines at the post office, germs, smoking, bad manners and people who use “they’re”, “there”, “their”, “your” and “you’re” incorrectly.
