I'd like to introduce myself as Crystal, best known as Chrisse (Chris-Ee)! I cannot thank you enough for visiting my baby/brainchild xoChrisse.com. It is a blog that I have wanted to start for what feels like forever and a hobby that I have thoroughly enjoyed for the past three years.
I am from beautiful Miami, Florida and have lived here my entire twenty-five years of life (Am I a lucky girl or what?). Growing up I was a competitive cheerleader (Explains my being all of 5 feet tall) with a sassy spirit, who LOVED being in front of a camera. At eight years old I knew that when I grew up I wanted to be a news reporter and so, nine years later I majored in TV Production at Miami Dade College. With age came wisdom and once I figured out that being a news reporter consisted of being the bearer of bad news and becoming BFF's with hurricanes (Florida weather for ya) I decided that I (and my voice) was of much better use behind the camera. When I was nineteen I got an internship on a little show you may have heard of called Kourtney & Khloe (Kardashian) Take Miami (Yes, I was SERIOUSLY freaking out) and over the years I have worked my way up to being a full fledged Producer. I've been incredibly blessed to work on many shows that have defined (fortunately & unfortunately) my generation including Jersey Shore, Basketball Wives, Biggest Loser, and Bad Girls Club to name a few.
On New Years Eve 2012 I decided to make starting xoChrisse.com my 2013 New Years Resolution and made the decision to take a break from producing to dedicate all of my time to growing my blog. I would be lying if I said I didn't doubt my decision at times (mostly when I want to splurge on something) but starting xoChrisse.com is truly the best thing I've done thus far. I've learned so much about myself, met countless amazing people, and experienced so many new things in such a short amount of time.
Fashion & Beauty have interested me since I couldn't spell either word and my passion for the two have only gotten bigger as I've grown up. When I was younger I would make custom clothes for my barbies out of socks and use markers to draw on their make up (Not kidding). So getting to blog about my favorite things is actually a lot of fun. And being that I live in Miami, I get to attend some of the coolest events in the Northern hemisphere and it wouldn't be right if I didn't share it with you all (That'd be very uncool of me). When I'm not blogging you can find me with my family, reading a book, rooting for my teams (Go Dolphins! Go Heat!), or on Instagram (Follow me).
I pray that through xoChrisse.com I am able to inspire and reach people who I wouldn't be able to impact otherwise and build something that will last. Don't be afraid to email me, leave a comment, or send requests, it's all Love!
