About Kristina

Kristina Braly is an accomplished Physician (Anesthesiologist), wife, mom of two girls (aged 3 and 2 months), and is developing a scrub company that will offer luxury, size-inclusive performance scrubs. Kristina got her start idly writing about the pretty, sparkly things she couldn’t yet afford as a broke medical student, and this blog was born out of the ashes of a family tragedy (click here to read my story) as she sought to escape the sadness of the loss of her 20-year-old brother by escaping in to the online world of fashion blogging. Kristina has been an influencer since before the term was coined. (Indeed, she was a blogger before “blog” was a household term–few people even knew what the “point” of a weblog was.)

She shares her home with her husband, Houston Braly, M.D., (affectionately known as “HB”), her toddler Harper, infant Juliet, and their two small dogs Leeloo and Gidget.
