Hello, my name is Carissa!

I am the twenty something blogger behind Blonde & Something.

In 2013, I started the blog as a creative outlet to share my style and fashion sense. Since then, it has evolved into a place of purpose where I can not only share my style and travels but my love for Jesus Christ. My aspiration for this space is to encourage and inspire others, anywhere from faith to fashion. 

When I was twenty-two years old, I surrendered my life to Jesus. Since then, my life has been radically changed. My life from then on has a purpose: to know God and to make God known. I believe that the Bible is the Word of God. I believe that God created the heavens and the earth, and He created man with a divine purpose of knowing Him and bringing Him glory. I believe we are sinners in need of a Savior. God created a plan of redemption through His son Jesus' death on the cross to save us from our sins and live a life of knowing Him.

A little bit more about myself... I am an avid latte drinker and a big fan of breakfast foods, I adore my family and friends, I enjoy adventure and spontaneity, long runs are my remedy and I may have a weakness when it comes to J.Crew and reality tv shows. As of lately, I am attending school at Olivet Nazarene University for a degree in fashion merchandising with a minor in both business and marketing. 

I'm so glad you stopped by! Feel free to email me at blondeandsomething@gmail.com, as I would love to learn more about you as well.
