Hello | My name is Kristin Tolentino and I’d like to officially welcome you to my blog, HelloTolentino. (I know, it’s a super creative name right?) Here, you will basically find an eclectic collection of things I find interesting, pretty, fun, and/or all-around awesome.
Forgetful by nature, I thought it would be brilliant to a have a place to document these things so 50 years from now, I can look back and be like, “Wow, I can’t believe I used to fit into that __[fill in the blank with your preferred item of clothing]__!” because let’s be honest, with my metabolism going downhill and combined with my love for carbs…this won’t always be the case.
And if time-capsuling my everyday life wasn’t reason enough, I also thought that starting a blog would help me out of this creative funk I’ve been in. I graduated as a biology major where I mostly spent my time studying nature, the human body, and the incredible details of how it all works…which was fascinating and will always be a love of mine (except for organic chemistry, F*#% organic chemistry…my brain just rejects you, sorry.) However, while studying, I didn’t put much effort exploring any of my other interests (i.e. food, photography, shoes & clothes, beauty, travel, art, DIY, interior design, etc.) and so I thought starting this blog would just be a perfect place to explore these things more whilst sharing what I like with people who have similar interests. So I do hope you enjoy!
