Hello! Whatever made you end up here, it doesn’t matter I’m just so glad you’re here! This post is to let you know what you can expect here on my little spot on the internet and you can learn a little more about me here. (Link to about me post) This blog is here to show you that you can live a compassionate life without sacrifice. You don’t have to sacrifice food, your health, fashion or anything else!

This blog has been a long time coming for me. I have started a blog multiple times to only then decide I hated the name I picked, or I didn’t like the theme I picked, or I hated everything I was writing about, the list of reasons goes on that I picked myself apart for but that ends today.

I chose my name, Christine Schaffer, as the title for a few reasons.

Number 1: Can’t get sick of my name so therefore can’t get sick of the blog name.

Number 2: Naming it something like my name will allow me to one day offer services through this blog in a professional manor. (I am working on getting my cert in Holistic Nutrition)

Number 3: Most importantly, it doesn’t confine me to a box of what I am writing about, that can change as I change.

While I have read many articles that say your blog name should give someone an idea about what you will write about, in a way this does. I’m going to cover a lot of things so I would just like this to be considered a lifestyle blog, not just a fashion blog, or a cooking blog, or what have you. It’s a bit of everything.

I would like to one day open up a rescue/animal sanctuary and would love to help spread awareness and possibly be able to fund that through this blog if I am able to. I work a full time job and am doing this is my spare time to one day be able to afford a farm where I can help animals. Either way that is the goal whether this makes money or not but if I could help fund that doing something I love, it would be incredible.

So if you are anything like me when I find a new blog, I always want to know a little more about the writer behind the words so I figured this post would be a great place to get to know me a bit. I don’t want to get too long winded because you’ll learn a bit more about me in every post so let’s just stick to a few basics.

My name is Christine, or Tene to lots of people, and I’m 27 years old living in New (South) Jersey. I live with my husband and our three furbabies, Penny, Opie and Ava. I work full time at a local fire department but am hoping to one day be able to open up my own rescue and animal sanctuary. I love fashion, FOOD, beauty and many other things that you’ll see here on the blog.

If you read my post about this blog (link) and what to expect you’ll have read that I have a started a few blogs in the past and have given them up for an array of different reasons. Sometimes I kick myself because I think about what I could have accomplished in those years but in a way I think it all worked out the way it should have. My life changed drastically about two years ago, which I go into in this post(link to post), and I feel I am the most centered and most grounded I have ever been and I know what I want for my life so this couldn’t have started at a better time. You are getting the best version of Christine there has ever been!

Check out my links to my other social media and I hope you stick around. I think you’ll find there’s something for everyone!

With love,
