It has taken quite a bit of courage, but here I am, writing my first blog. I've always had strong opinions and normally have a lot to say. No better time than the present to document my thoughts.
As you may have read in my introduction, I live in Alaska. I relocated to Anchorage from our nations capital on June 15, 2011. A series of events have led me here, but I'd like to call it fate. I will get around to discussing the last 31 years, but I'm just asking for your patience, please!
I admit to being a true Pisces...I live in a fantasy world and have an artist's mentality. You get me or you don't. You love me or you hate me. There is no in-between with Crystal (I'll try not to speak in third-person).
You will hear me discuss fashion and the outdoors more than anything. I have other interests, but these subjects will dominate the most...in that order. I also have a handful of truly amazing people in my life, that inspire me, so you will hear about them as well. I am a freelance artist for a major cosmetic label, and have worked on and off in the field for the past decade. I'll try not to talk about work much. :)
I admit to not being eloquent, so this should get interesting.
Just a list of things to start out with (that you may know or not know about me) :
I am a former fatty, and 115 pds smaller than I was around 5 years ago.
Erdem, Viktor & Rolf and Alexander McQueen are my favorite labels in 2012.
Halloween is by far the best day of the year.
When I was a teenager, I was in a Broadway play.
I went off to college on a Music scholarship.
I'm addicted to creating sets on Polyvore www.happycrystalb.polyvore.com
I've found the love of my life.
I've had an amazing fishing year - one of the luckiest.
I could listen to Bruce Springsteen and The Rolling Stones all day.
I'm spiritual, but not religious.
I'll never discuss politics on my blog.
I have the most amazing parents.
I am a die hard animal lover.
I thrive in the dark and snow, the summer and sunshine depresses me.
I can sniff out the most expensive item in the room - I have good taste!
And yes, that is Betsey Johnson in my profile picture with me.
