Hello Christina! Thank you so much for agreeing to this interview. First off, can you tell us about you and your blog? How did you get started and what are your passions?
This is going to be so much fun! Well, I’m Christina and I share posts on lifestyle, health, fitness, and productivity over on my blog Christina and Camera. I’ve been blogging for over three years and I love it. Some other things I love are thrifting, beach days, time with friends and rainy days.
Where do you live and what is the best thing about your hometown?
I live in Florida! While it does get pretty hot, especially during the summer, I love living near the beach. This is pretty near to my family and major tourist attractions like Disney World!
What is your philosophy on life and why?
Since I’m a Christian, that certainly shapes my philosophy on life. My goal for my life is to love God and people, however that might be!
What important lessons have you learnt over the past few years?
I’ve learned that it doesn’t matter if everyone likes you and to do what you love even if others don’t understand it!
What does your creative process look like?
I always start by scrolling on Pinterest to get inspiration and then check my list of post ideas to find an idea! I usually don’t write a post in one day unless it’s super short.
What does a typical day in your life look like? Tell us about your morning and night routine.
It depends on the day! I try to start my day with some sort of physical activity and time with God. That doesn’t always happen but I love knocking out important things first thing in the morning! I do most of my blog work in the morning as well because I find myself way more focused. I’ve also been trying to stay off social media and my phone until the afternoon. It’s helped my productivity so much.
What goals did you set for yourself this year and how far along are you in terms of achieving them? What do you have in mind for next year?
Honestly, I’ve forgotten most of them but I have gotten way better at playing my violin. I know that was one of my goals for this year! My blog has also grown and passed four hundred followers, a blogging goal of mine. I haven’t even thought about my goals for next year, so I should probably get on that, lol!
In what ways has your Christian faith influenced and served as a guide for your life? What about as a young blogger?
My faith is so important to me and it influences every part of my life! I’ve always tried to be very open about it on my blog even though I know many of my followers don’t share it. My relationship with God has gotten me through many tough times in my life and He is always there for me!
What do you believe sets you apart from other lifestyle bloggers? What are your strengths?
I think that I’m pretty open about my life and very real on my blog. Sometimes I only want to share the good things but recently I’ve been trying to be more honest which I think is a different approach than some people take!
How would you describe your style? Who or what are your inspirations?
My style is comfy/cosy/basic/boho but I honestly don’t even know how to describe it! Below is my Pinterest board for outfit inspiration. You’ll see some examples of outfits I love.
