Hi, I’m Cristy, I am a wife, mom to an adorable daughter, Junior Leaguer, water lover and world traveler. Giakarandais a lifestyle blog. I am passionate about my family, friends, entertaining, traveling, crafting, home décor, celebrating and organizing.

Professionally I am an event + brand stylist, event planner and a marketer with 15 years of experience. I consult with local and national brands, including retail, small businesses and restaurants. I develop content and strategies to effectively surround target audiences through relevant digital channels.

Giakaranda blog is a personal blog. I love sharing information with my readers as a way of giving back to a community that has given me so much. I love connecting with you and other readers and that is my primary goal with my blog. A secondary goal is to help support my family. I work with a number of companies that compensate me if products are purchased, items are downloaded, etc. Thank you in advance for your support.
