Get to Know Me - A Proper Introduction - Karina With a K

Hi there! I'm so glad you're here! I'd like to first thank you for stopping by and for hopefully making it to the end lol. I don't want to make this too long, but I'd really like to give you a brief introduction into who I am, where I come from, and what you can expect to see in this blog. 

As I'm sure you've already suspected, my name is Karina - with a K ;) So why is my blog name 'Karina with a K'? Because I've said that too many times in my life than I can count! Maybe my fellow Karinas' with K's can attest to that too lol. This comes from the fact that I often get people asking "...with a C or a K?"...WITH A K, thank you. :) 

Moving on, my full name is Karina Gallardo, no middle name, and previously known as something else...until I got married almost 3 years ago. I was born and raised in one of the most dangerous cities in America (according to our president, but it's really not), El Paso, TX. I still currently reside here, and I have no plans of ever leaving this place because I truly love it. 

I live with the hub hubs, and my two babies, Pete and Slinky - yes those are dogs. Pete is a chubby rascal English Bulldog potato, and Slinky is the hyperactive fun loving lab mix.

I graduated with a degree in computer science from UTEP and I've been working as a programmer ever since. Now I'm not an expert in the field if I'm being honest, but I do enjoy it and I've always had an interest in computers and technology in general. However, with that said, I've come to realize in the past years that it's not a true passion and I definitely do not see myself doing it for the rest of my working life. You know what they say, do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life.

Opening my online boutique has become my real passion, and I'd love for you to follow along with me on this journey. If you're just starting out, we can grow together, or if you've been in it 10 years I'd love to learn from you! I plan on using this blog to log my journey, to keep you in the loop of new things happening here, and to provide my own knowledge of what I've learned so all the everyday little life events that come up in between.

If you made it this far, THANK YOU, and please make sure to subscribe to the mailing list below so you're always in the loop! Until next time...
