About

Just me

I am fun, outgoing, beauty addict who is a little bit of a mutt.  I am half black and half white, which is simplifying it quite a bit. I am a new mom and i am loving motherhood!. I had my first child in August 2011 and my husband and I are enjoying every minute with our son! I’ve titled this blog, “The Crystal Chronicles” as an outlet for everything in my life. My love affair with makeup, I think working in the cosmetics department at Macy’s for almost five years probably didn’t help with that either, my friends and family as well as my personal journey in motherhood, fitness, the things that inspire me and everything in between. I also do freelance makeup artistry for The Decoraded Bride providing not only bridal makeup application but makeup application for special events and occasions. During my time as a Beauty Advisor at Macy’s I worked for Prescriptives, Christian Dior and Estee Lauder. All of which helped me develop my love for makeup (or addiction like I said- in a good way of course) and makeup artistry.

Family

¡Amo mi familia! I come from a very multicultural family and we are growing faster than I can keep up with sometimes and I love it! We are slowly taking over the rainbow so watch out! My husband’s name is Christian and my son’s name is Christian Xavier. They are the loves of my life and I can’t thank God enough for the little blessing he has sent our way. Baby Christian (which is how we distinguish between Daddy and baby- for now) has brought so much joy to our lives and I can’t imagine anything or anyone more perfect than my bouncey baby boy! Although, I am probably biased, but I am a mommy and I am allowed to be!
