We had the good fortune of connecting with Christina Pellerin and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Christina, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
There are 2 habits that stand out in my mind that have helped me to succeed. The 1st being determination, it’s really hard for me to give up on anything lol. Sometimes I whish I could give up but there’s something inside me that just won’t let me. I think with anything in life determination is key, not giving up and seeing things through to the finish. Whether it takes years or A-day I am always determined to finish what I started.
The 2nd habit is positive thinking/mindfulness, what I’m saying to myself daily and being mindful of my thoughts. The minute I switched to that habit I saw a total 360 change in my life for the better. I started receiving the jobs and opportunities that I wanted due to right thinking. I know everything in life isn’t rainbows and unicorns but generally I’m on the side of the coin that the glass is full. I believe being positive has helped me to bring positive experiences into my life and bring more success as well.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am blessed to be able to create within the art forms of acting, dance, entertainment and fashion. Creativity has always come naturally to me. Since I was a kid I loved creating things whether it was taking apart my mom’s bed sheets to created an outfit or making up a production with my siblings to entertain my mom, cooking or modeling. I’ve always loved creating things.
I am a person who has many talents and that can sometimes be hard trying to focus on one thing. I’ve found that over the years I have seasons of success in each area of my brand. Whether I’m sowing a custom piece for someone, dancing on stage with an artist, acting or working in some capacity of entertainment I am happy as long as I get to be creative. I think we were all put on Earth to create and that’s what I love doing the most!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’m a lover and a big fan of LA . I love when family and friends come to visit. Here are some of my favourite spots in LA. My first stop is the beach. I love going to paradise cove in Malibu and crystal cove in Laguna Beach. Also if I have a full free day I normally will go to Catiline island for a ture of the island and lunch.
I love a good outdoor adventure so of course hiking will be on the agenda and a visit to the observatory.
Also a trip to rodeo and lunch at crustaceans. Followed by drinks at the SLS are always my favourite things to do with friends.
I normally do a trip downtown to give a different feel ,a city vibe. I love having dinner at Bestia and shopping in the alley/fashion district for some cool finds and fabric. Also Wurstkuche in DTL’s arts district is fun and interesting.
If its the weekend a cool farmers market is fun. I Normally go in mid Wilshire so I can make a stop at the restaurant My 2 Cents for lunch.
Also Palm Springs and Vegas are always an option if we have the time.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I dedicate my Shoutout to my family (Mom, DAD, and 3 siblings). Especially my mom, since I was a child she’s always been my biggest fan and encourager.
