The Simply Stine Story
I started Simply Stine back in 2012. I was an avid reader of several beauty websites and realized that people were coming to me for their beauty questions/problems. After months of considering starting my own blog, I finally decided to give it a try! I never in my wildest dreams thought it would turn into anything like it has. I’m very thankful!
Simply Stine is a beauty, book, and lifestyle blog by created by me, Christine. My main focus (and love) has been to share makeup and skincare tips. I have a background in the beauty industry and fell in love with makeup techniques and all things skincare.
My other true love? READING. You’ll find me sharing what books I’ve read every month. My goal for this year is 65 books and I’m already so close! You can follow me on Goodreads if you’re wanting to see what I’m reading.
You’ll also find me talking about other issues like infertility, mental issues, fashion hits and misses, and my travels! I like to keep things random on Simply Stine and I just share the real life stuff: good and bad.
I fell in love with the world of beauty and skin care during my time working in the spa and wellness industry. In those 10+ years I worked my way from a receptionist to upper management and spent every day watching clients walk out of our spa with their heads held high, a new confidence in each step, and full of self-love.
I want that same feeling for you but I know that everyone doesn’t have the time (or the energy, or the money, or the drive) to visit a spa or wellness facility every day. That’s why I’m using my blog to bring the insider knowledge I’ve gained through countless courses from big brands, personal research, and my relationships with industry experts directly to you. Using my tips, tricks, and tutorials you can learn to be the best version of yourself!
What To Expect On Simply Stine
As a blogger, I’m always asked to define what I do and that is one of the hardest things I have ever had to put into words. We have a tendency to overcomplicate things but the heart of my mission, my dream for you, is to help you feel fabulous every day of your life.
I want to:
-Educate you on skin issues, makeup tips, and new product launches
-Offer tips and tricks about current beauty trends (and what you can skip!)
-Take away your anxiety about stores like Sephora and ULTA
-Show you that everyone deserves to feel beautiful and confident
-Share with you my favorite recipes and tricks on feeling like a badass in the kitchen
-Learn ways to live a more meaningful, peaceful, happy life
I want you to enjoy beauty trends but, more than that, I want you to know that makeup can only enhance your beauty and that true beauty comes from within.
