Hello hello hello!!!
Thank you so much for coming to my blog! I am so excited to embark on this journey!
My name is Crystal, and this isn’t my first blogging venture. I’ve tried it before, but didn’t feel “good enough” to continue. I had a beauty blog (but was terrible a taking makeup photos haha), a lettering blog for my Etsy business, and even made a keto blog, which failed before it started…. Just like my multiple attempts at a keto lifestyle!
I’ve always wanted to be a blogger, but time and life always got in the way L I never liked my pictures and my blogs never got traffic. And guys! Blogging is a lot more work than I expected!
But I always remember one thing a teacher told my mom when I was in elementary school… She said that I had a gift of being a writer! I don’t remember what grade I was in and her exact words, but that one thing stuck in my head all these years. That and the drive to try again kept nagging at me, so here I am! Enough with the excuses, it’s time to follow a dream. Like they always say, you never know until you try.
A little bit about me…
I’m in my early 20’s and married to my high school sweetheart. We dated for about 6 ½ years before getting married, and been married for almost 3 years!
My husband is currently serving in the military, so this Hawaii-born girl is living life in North Dakota at the moment!
I have two dogs who are my world! I say I’m a proud dog mom… but I may on the edge of becoming a crazy dog mom haha Pixie is 5 years old and is a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix. And we just adopted Rufus last month! He is an 8 month old black Lab mix. We are so lucky to have him.! We are his fourth home now, and his fur-ever home.
I’m a self-proclaimed #bosslady as a full time small business owner (don’t worry, I won’t push my products on you haha). I have a hand lettering shop on Etsy and am an Independent Color Street Stylist. My blog name is actually both business names put together (Sweet Pixie Designs & Crystal’s Chic Nails).
I have the tendency to overuse exclamation points and emojis, so watch out! I love coffee, my favorite season is summer (give me allll the sun), Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I haven’t found a Buzzfeed quiz I didn’t take.
My blog will cover anything from lifestyle and advice to food… I may even just use it as a daily diary just to get my thoughts out there!
If there is anything you want me to write about, just let me know! This is going to be so much fun!
Let’s be friends!
