You’ll find LOTS of different types of content here. Spoiler alert: I’m not great at picking a niche. My brain is just weird like that. It’s multi-passionate, endearingly messy, sometimes sarcastic, and always full of emotion and creativity.
I’m still slowly coming to terms with the fact that I’ll never actually have it all figured out, but I also wholeheartedly believe that, with a little help, every single one of us can live our best lives in spite of the many imperfections and obstacles we stumble upon along the way.
That’s why I created this space.. to hang out and talk about real life stuff in the same way that you would when sitting down to chat with your best friend.
So you’ll find things like life updates and musings, travel recaps, cool things I find on the internet, entrepreneurship talk, and the occasional (and probably awkwardly posed) style moment.
My hope is that you’ll always leave here feeling inspired and with a full heart, like you’ve just spent time with a dear friend.
HEY! I’m Christen Strang (that’s “string” with an “a” and an added dose of southern twang, just in case you were wondering).
I was born, raised, and currently reside in the sweet southern city of Mobile, Alabama. I graduated from Spring Hill College (also in Mobile) with a degree in Art Business and Graphic Design.
I’m an introvert, millennial, color enthusiast, wannabe minimalist, enneagram 4w5, Christian, only child (who has spent her entire life trying to break the stereotypes of only children thankyouverymuch) who loves Disney World, the beach, my sweet Schnoodle, Sophie, football (Roll Tide! Who Dat!), Starbucks pink drinks, sushi, sour gummy worms, chips and queso (wow, this turned food-centric REAL fast), hot yoga (that’s better!), and.. did I mention Disney World?
I’ve worked at a super random assortment of places throughout the years, including a frame shop, a Christian music label, Disney World (shocker, right?), a law firm, and a high school (where I still currently work part time), but I found my true passion when I started creating happy goods and selling them on Etsy. (You can find my shops here —> letterhappy / happytatts) I also have a small online boutique with all the above-mentioned awkwardly posed style moments you could possibly want. (You can find that here —> the linden closet)
If you don’t already, come follow me on Instagram! I share colorful curated snaps on my feed as well as day-to-day happenings on stories. Sophie also makes lots of appearances, so if nothing else, you’ll definitely want to stick around for that. Oh, and I always answer my DMs.
I’m also a tad Pinterest obsessed, so you can find some serious visual eye-candy over there.
Thanks again for spending time with me here on my little corner of the interwebs, and I truly hope you’ll want to make this spot a favorite hang out!
