Hello there! We are Justine and Kristina, and thought we’d tell you a little about our blog, Periwinkle.
Justine: I’m a singer/songwriter, seventeen, and have had multiple failed attempts at style blogs in the past. I’ve always loved beautiful things and am obsessed with blogs that share them, but when it came to keeping up one of my own, I could never hold myself accountable! I met Kristina through our mutual friend, Tommy, and when we came up with the idea of starting a blog together, I had a feeling it would have much more longevity and be even more fun! I’m so ready for this new Internet journey. I will now turn over the metaphorical mic to the lovely Kristina…
Kristina: I am a photographer, stylist, people lover, cake eater, and, like Justine, admirer of all things beautiful in life. Inspiration is everywhere and joy can come from the smallest of things. This blog is a way to capture those small moments, share beauty, ideas and the things that interest Justine and I. Justine has a style and eye that is beautiful and I am excited to photograph her expression of these things and her personal style. I, along with the talented collective of SteamyintheCity YouTube channel are so happy to know Justine and to be working with her to make new videos of her beautiful voice and talent. Hopefully we will be sharing the videos here as a part of our lifestyle blog, since music is a big part of our life.
With our shared love of delicious dishes both savory and sweet (but mostly sweet!) and our penchant for styling clothes and makeup (plus Kristina’s kick-butt photography skillz), it was kind of a no-brainer to start a lifestyle blog together! When we sat down to discuss the idea, we were both drawn toward a single word:
For us, periwinkle was not just the color of an underrated Crayola crayon- it was a state of mind. Periwinkle suggested magic and dreaminess and adventure. The very word itself seemed to, well, twinkle!
This blog is documenting our mission to lead periwinkle lives, and hopefully it’ll put some periwinkle into your life too!
Stay tuned for more…
Be happy. Think Periwinkle.
-Kristina and Justine
