About the Blog:
Welcome to My Little Box of Tricks – a hub of tips, tricks, short cuts and other resources created to help make the process of navigating through your twenties a little bit easier. This blog was created with the curious twenty-something in mind, by a curious twenty one year old. Here you can expect new blog posts every Tuesday and Thursday and a new video on my YouTube channel every Saturday.
First branded as “The Glitter Diaries” in 2013, My Little Box of Tricks was created in April 2015 as a means to productively spend my free time while taking a class and working part-time on campus over the summer. My Little Box of Tricks seeks to provide tips, shortcuts, advice, recipes, and other helpful resources to twenty-somethings as they are trying to navigate through this thing called “adulthood.” I hope that I can provide my readers with useful resources that they will turn to when they need advice, a quick dinner recipe or a sense of community.
I’m Kristine, the 22-year old blogger behind My Little Box of Tricks, and I am so glad you’re here. I’m currently finishing up my Bachelor’s Degree in advertising with minors in sociology and communication at the University of Illinois.
I’m incredibly passionate about learning about anything and everything – there’s so much to learn! I spend my time blogging, cooking and playing fetch for hours with my fiancée and I’s dog, Jace Cooper. My fiancée, Tucker, is the most loving and pickiest vegetarian I’ve ever met and I spend a lot of time trying to trick him into eating vegetables. I’m a self-proclaimed Coca-Cola aficionado, love the smell of coffee beans and have an odd obsession with Christmas. Through My Little Box of Tricks, I hope to help other twenty-somethings navigate their way through life a little bit more easily than they would’ve otherwise.
