The weird thing about the internet is that you can discover people and without meeting them in person know quite a lot their tastes, interests, and life. If you follow them long enough you start to feel like you  eventually even feel like you’re friends. Of course you’re not fully friends because they know nothing about you. Today’s conversation is one of the rare (yet becoming more frequent for me) occasions where an internet friend becomes a real friend live on the podcast (over Skype in this case). I’ve been getting to know Christine for years through being entertained by her Vlogs, discovering new music & brands through her favorites videos, style tips from her daily uniform series, and feeling inspired from her apartment tours & intimate interviews on YouTube. I’m so glad this conversation lived up to my expectation of what Christine would be like live. She was ever bit as thoughtful, earnest, and wise as she comes off in the hundreds of YouTube videos. While Christine went to film school and began on YouTube when she was just 18 she’s an eclectic creative who has interests ranging from home decor to film photography to make-up to design. We get into everything from a cultivating a career as a creative freelancer to recovering after a tough breakup to handling aging and body image and creating community. We talk about style and religion and family and travel and everything in between. I loved meeting her and having this meandering conversation which I think you’ll love too.
