Christmas Cheer & Holiday Magic Through the Year



2015 has been a year filled with new opportunities, making new friends, reconnecting with old ones, and of course precious moments with my family.  Charleston Shop Curator has become more than just a job for me, it’s inspired me in so many ways.  I love being a part of a creative community in Charleston and helping local businesses is what I love to do. I wake up everyday excited to see what the day brings.  Whether it’s having meetings, visiting stores and designers to see what new stuff they have, being on set making magic with amazing crews, or being at my computer and phone creating content, I love the process of everything!  People always say – how do you do it, how do you find the time? When you love what you do as much as I do you make the time and you squeeze every second of the day and turn it into something that your proud of.

The motivation is fueled by encouraging words by my family, friends, colleagues, and people on the street that I meet that tell me “Hey! Your Charleston Shop Curator, I love following you on Instagram!”  I would not be able to do all of this if it wasn’t for my husband Gustavo Serrano, who is my rock and support.  He’s my Mr. Mom when I have my late night shoots and my after work events.  He’s always there with loving arms and gives me great advice when I’m too tired to think straight.  Yes, I owe a lot to this guy and I’ll never take it for granted.

I hope everyone has a Very Merry Christmas with their loved ones and a safe and Happy New Year.  Life is precious and sometimes short, live in the moment and hold on tight to the people you love.  I’m looking forward to seeing what 2016 brings, I know it’s going to be a big one! XOXO
