IT ALL STARTED WITH A CIN.
"Tina Belcher by day, Blair Waldorf by night"
Enjoy flipping through my personal website. I put my heart and soul into creating it and networking and collaborating with the finest companies and brands. (With all the glitter and glamour that goes into fashion) For all of you who asked thank you for the love and support.
Self made success at 20 years old with a little bit of sparkle and a whole lot of ambition. I started my online shop July 2016 on impulse and the rest is history. Born in Boston MA, currently attending Boston University. I work on Newbury Street, still running the boutique and my fourth job. Running The Life Of Cin. This is where I personally share, favorites for the seasons, clothes, anything that in relation to fashion, beauty and my favorite places to eat in Boston.
I want to create a fashion Instagram/ blog; any tips?
You came to the right website for this obviously.
BE YOURSELF! BE MOTIVATED! DON'T STOP!
I can not stress how much this means to a content creator. I have witnessed countless Youtubers lose who they are over the course of time because of money and fame.
If you want to be a well known person on Instagram, you have to strip it all down and start with the person that people want to see:
Fashion is worldwide, it's different to many people in the world and everyone has a different story, style that they would want to share with other peple. Post things that you LOVE and write about things you are passionate about. Don't do it for revenue, or for the fame. Post anything from food, fashion, animals, etc. What ever you want! Keeping a cute Instagram feed is nice, but it's whatever your heart desires. As long as you be true to yourself and help others along the way; that's all that matters.
Helpful tips from Cindy herself;
I use VSCO for any edits on my photos to make them have a dark filter. (I usually use C1, that's my favorite and A5) I do not necessarily have an aesthetic and I hate using the Instagram filters because they make me look washed out and sometimes they seem to look very over edited. If it is not my taste it shouldn't be yours either. I also like to play around on Lightroom with any professional photos that I take, definitely one of the greatest tools that I have to use and edit photos with.

Why did you start The Life Of Cin?
After a lot of messages on Facebook regarding a website to showcase my collection and life, I decided to build it. I have had such a large following for a long time. People were curious to who I was. I thought about it and it was time for me to introduce myself to the world. I was already well known in the Lilly Pulitzer world, as well as being a Kate Spade fanatic and all things fashion. I didn't really care about an image, but If people wanted to know me for who I really am then so be it. I wanted to be able to share my ideas to the world and be able to produce new content every week with such a large following.
I'll build a website and call it The Life Of Cin.
What is your life aspiration exactly?
At this point of my life I don't know where I am going. I felt like I had my life already set out for myself in high school with a career in fashion design. But everything changed my freshman year of college. I fell out of love with the design part. There were too many factors that made me upset and angry with myself and other people. I changed majors and the rest is history. Currently studying journalism in the college of communications here at Boston University.
