About Kristina

Hi, I’m Kristina, the girl behind this beauty & personal style blog, (formerly Pretty Shiny Sparkly). KristinaBraly.com is my outlet celebrating the feminine aesthetic–and a sparkly thing or two. The blog was born out of the ashes of a family tragedy (click here to read my story). I enjoy making content about lifestyle and luxury. Work Hard, Play Hard—those are words to live by.

I share my home with my wonderful husband, “HB”, our toddler Harper, and our two small dogs. I enjoy watching YouTube as well as making YouTube videos.

When I’m not filming, writing, tweeting, or changing diapers, I’m a full-time Attending Anesthesiologist.

Feel free to check me out on Twitter, Facebook, Bloglovin’, and YouTube.

Please see this page to find out how to get in touch with me!
