I’m Karissa, the creator of Kris + Joy. Why did I start this blog?
Because I’m obsessed with all things style!
I could spend hours pouring through fashion magazines, perusing clothing racks, and testing all the make up in Sephora. Kris + Joy is my own little fashion magazine with the intention to be a creative outlet for me and a source for fun, inspiring, and meaningful content for all of you. I’m just an everyday girl with an everyday budget navigating these LA prices, determined to get the best bang for my buck! Stick with me and I’ll show you how to look your best at any budget!
What’s in a name?
I’ve always felt a strong connection to the word joy. Mostly because it’s my middle name but also because of the way the word makes people feel. There are so many things that give me joy (my friends and family, living in LA, being a girl, being a black girl, champagne, gel nail polish etc. etc.), and every day I find something new that makes me joyful. I named my blog Kris + Joy because it’s an extension of my name, and it highlights my ultimate goal: to share with you guys all the amazing things currently bringing me joy.
I would love to hear from you, so contact me for collaborations, style tips, or just to say hi!
